Jacob has uncovered the doorway to another world, hidden behind a mirror. It is a place of dark magic and enchanted objects, scheming dwarves and fearsome ogres, fairies born from water and men born from stone. Here, he hunts for treasure and seeks adventure in the company of Fox - a beautiful, shape shifting girl, who guides and guards him.

Because a deadly curse has been spoken; and Jacob must risk his life to reverse it, before his brother is turned to stone forever...
