    Jack has caused an earthquake. He was trying to save his sister, Lucy, from being thrown down a well, but he is, after all, only a 13-year-old bard in training. Sometimes the magic doesn't quite work out. Not only does Jack demolish a monastery, but Lucy is carried off by the Lady of the Lake. Jack has to follow her through the Hollow Road that lies underground. It leads to all sorts of unexpected places: caves full of dragon poop, knucker holes (you do not want to know what knuckers are), and Elfland.

    Matt has always been nothing but a clone - grown from a strip of old El Patron’s skin. Now, at age 14, he finds himself suddenly thrust into the position of ruling over his own country. The Land of Opium is the largest territory of the Dope Confederacy, which ranges on the map like an intestine from the ruins of San Diego to the ruins of Matamoros. But while Opium thrives, the rest of the world has been devastated by ecological disaster - and hidden in Opium is the cure.

    Campi di papaveri a perdita d'occhio sui crinali delle colline, e schiere di uomini in uniforme a raccoglierne il prezioso nettare. È questo l'impero di El Patrón, potente signore della droga a capo di Opium, una striscia di terra che si estende tra gli Stati Uniti e le regioni che un tempo venivano chiamate Messico. Sono gli eejit a lavorare nei campi, uomini nel cui cervello sono stati installati dei chip che li costringono a una passiva docilità.
