We have all either read or heard about some faraway fantasy land where there are dragons, Elves, and dwarves. But they are just stories, right? But what if they werent? The Deeks family, just like you or I or anyone else for that matter, also thought that those stories were just that: stories. That is until one night, while on a family holiday in England, they get lost in the worst fog they have ever seen. And, when they finally get through the fog, they find that they have somehow passed through a portal into another world. The Deeks find themselves in the land of Angron and it is a land where Elves, dwarves, dragons and a whole lot more besides are very real. They also find themselves in a time when the whole of Angron is on the cusp of a war between good and evil and, if they only but knew it, their presence may well be the trigger that begins the bloody conflict. The only question is, do they try and get home before the dark forces of chaos engulf the whole of Angron or do they stay and face the storm?

Have you ever shared a flat with your so-called friends? Do you remember with a shudder the squabbles over the itemised phone bill, the cleaning rota and whose turn it is to do the washing up? If so, you'll sympathise with the three troubled occupants of No. 67 Artesia Road. Fiona - who's been offered a glorious job in New York, but can't bear to leave Tim, her brilliant - but none-too-devoted - fiancé. Kerry - who's fed up with spending Saturday night alone in front of the TV, fantasising about her devastatingly handsome - but unavailable - boss. Linzi - who won't be tied down by anybody or anything. They think they've got problems. But nothing can prepare them for the chaos which ensues when Linzi's latest boyfriend arrives on the scene. Gorgeous but feckless, Gaetano spells trouble with a capital 'T'. And soon events are spiralling out of everyone's control . . .
