Aaron and Stella, ordinary children, unexpectedly find themselves in an extraordinary situation. Alone in a country they weren’t aware of, governed by physical laws they know nothing about, they are offered a rescue mission: to overthrow the Black Queen and her lords. On the way they make friends and learn about the world and themselves. They are offered the help of the Supreme Ruler and granted the right to abandon the mission anytime, which they are tempted to do in its darkest moments.
Sounds familiar? All of us experience this kind of situations in life. We call them crises. Each crisis has two faces: it can be a problem, but it can also be a blessing. If you give in, life becomes dull and colourless. But if you persist and keep fighting, you will emerge from the crisis and reach heights you have never dreamed of.
We don’t know who our children will become in their lives. But we definitely have to teach them to be good people and discern between good and evil. We definitely have to teach them to think. We have to introduce them to the worlds of faith and science, teach them to be strong, resilient, and persistent, and to be able to source hidden powers within themselves, which every human has.
Knowledge and education have always been crucial for humanity to progress down the generations. But it is especially important nowadays: science is no longer the preserve of universities. It is an integral part of our lives. In my book I attempt to introduce children to the wonderful and fascinating world of science.
In the beginning I wrote this story just for my children and grandchildren. But then I decided to publish it, thinking that, even if it helped just a few children to navigate their way through life, my mission would be complete.
I attempted to send a message to the children: seek knowledge, never give in, and trust yourself.
