Where anything is possible, but not always controllable.
Enter at your own risk.
The night before her fifteenth birthday, Rosaline Clayton receives an amulet from her deranged
father. He tells her she must find the book, and begs her to save him. Rosaline is used to her father
not making any sense, and she dismisses their conversation as another of his crazy rants.
Rosaline and her younger brother, Elliot, find the old, leather-bound book tucked away in their Nana’s
attic, and it sucks them into its pages. They land in a magical world where anything is possible, but
when Rosaline and Elliot are separated, the only thing Rosaline wants is to find her brother and go
The creatures of Immagica have other ideas. Rosaline befriends a black unicorn, two fairies, and a
girl named Brynn, who are under threat from a menacing dragon. Rosaline discovers she is bound
to Immagica in ways she doesn’t understand, and the fate of this magical world rests entirely on her
The book flew open and a gust of wind whipped my curls around my face. The pages riffled back and
forth before coming to a halt, open at the first page. This was getting a little weird. I was about to slam
the book shut when words began to appear of their own volition, right before our eyes.
“Um, Elliot. Can you see that? Or am I as crazy as Dad?”
“I can see it,” he whispered.
Immagica, the place where anything is possible, but not always controllable.
Enter at your own risk.
“What a load of crap,” I said, picking the book up. The new line of text flickered gold and pulsed, on
then off, then on again, like a flashing, neon sign. I gingerly picked up the corner of the page and
peeked under it to the next, but it was blank.
“How do we enter?” Elliot asked, leaning into me and staring at the book.
“Why do you keep asking me all these questions? You’re here, you know as much as I do.”
“You’re older, and always acting so much smarter than me,” Elliot said. I poked my tongue out.
“That’s real mature.” He rolled his eyes.
“Oh, so you’re Mr Maturity now you’re a teenager.”
“Sometimes I’m more mature than you!”
While we argued, we were oblivious to what was happening. The book riffled its pages again, and
another gust of wind hit our faces. Before we knew what was happening, the golden glow exploded
from the book and sucked us in. That’s the best way I can describe it. One minute we were in my
room, surrounded by my grandmother’s elegant interior decorating, and the next we were enveloped
with gold light.
At first I felt Elliot beside me, but then he was gone. The light was warm, like a soft, fuzzy blanket.
Then the ground hit me in the face. It was hard and rough. The force of my landing knocked the wind
out of me, and I tumbled over myself before coming to a halt on my back. Above me was an azure
sky dotted with fluffy, marshmallow clouds. I turned my head and spotted the book lying closed on the
ground a few metres away. I tried to move to retrieve it, but it took a few moments before I could roll
onto my side and get to my knees.
When I finally managed to stand, I took in my surroundings with wide eyes. The sky may have
been blue, but the ground was dirty charcoal. Lumps of gravel mixed with sand and dead grass. It
stretched on, and on, nothing but barren wasteland no matter which way I turned. The only break in
the landscape was where the horizon met the sky.
A lump of fear rose in my throat. Where was Elliot?
I didn’t know where I was, and I was completely alone.
