Publisher's Summary

On a September evening in 1931, John and Jack, two of the caretakers of the Imaginarium Geographica, discover a plea for help on a medieval manuscript - which seems to have been written by their friend, Hugo Dyson! When they rush to warn him, Hugo walks through a door in time - and vanishes into the past. And in that moment, the world begins to change.

The Frontier, which separates our world from the Archipelago of Dreams, has fallen. Dark and terrible beasts roam throughout England. No one can be summoned from the Archipelago. All the world lies under the reign of a cruel and terrible king.

The only hope to restore the proper order of things lies on a forgotten island, where a time-travel device left by Jules Verne must be used to race through history itself - from the Bronze Age, to ancient Alexandria and the founding of the Silver Throne - in one night. And in that single night, John and Jack will find that the only way to save their friend and stop the chaos destroying the world is to solve a 2,000 year-old mystery: Who is the Cartographer?

Chronicles of the imagination Geographical

Love this series. James Langton is masterful as the narrator with all the different characters and voices. I hope he eventually does the last two books in the series. I have listened to 4 so far and am about to start the 5th one, James A Owen is a great story teller who really knows literature of all types.
