Cameron McKenzie is a brilliant Edinburgh lad with a great sense of humor and superior football (soccer, in America) skill. His school mate since Primary School is Susan Light, a spirited American girl who moved to Scotland when her father, Dr. James Light, accepted a research post at the Royal College of Surgeons.
Against the contemporary Edinburgh skyline, Cameron and Susan discover the time portal under Dean Street Bridge and travel back in time to rewrite history. Taking with them futuristic ideas from science and their culture, they reach out for the magic of Merlin and the inventions of a helpful alien to restructure the history between England and Scotland.
Along the way, the come face to face with The Shadow Force, the greed-driven force that would lose billions if they were to succeed. With the horros of the Dark Ages along with shape shifting aliens surrounding them, the friends proceed with creativity and courage.
Their goal: to heal the ‘dead zones’ in the oceans and transform four hundred years of hatred and war into a history of cooperation between two countries of unequal power.
Their efforts — seemingly crazy and hopeless — remind us to never underestimate the hearts of children or the heroes they believe in as a power to transform the world. And sometimes, such heroes only enter their lives through the pages of a childhood book.
