For the first time in paperback, the adventure continues. . . It's been six months since Marcus and Kyja obtained the help of the land and water elementals. But before they can get help from the mysterious air elementals, they have to figure out how to open a box with no key. Together, Marcus and Kyja travel into the Is, the Was, the Will Be and the Never Was as they try to open the box, save their city, and free Land Keep and Water Keep from water and land elementals who have joined the Dark Circle. Marcus still has to find a way to change the future and save Kyjas life, but there is a catch: any changes they make in the Abyss of Time may destroy the doorway, trapping them forever . . . Even with his physical handicap, Marcus is able to accomplish great things. It is a story of determination and friendship, and of having the courage to make those hard decisions.
