A journey to the centre of things
Breathtakingly exciting, black humoured and complex
"EVERYONE IS IN HIS OWN WORLD, RIGHT? What happens round about doesn't make any difference. But if a bug gets inside, that's when things start to get bad."
Alfons and Moritz, two friends who are totally different in character, both feel uncertain. Have they really been called to go on an immensely important mission into fantasy worlds? Or have they been taken in by a stupid joke and are now blundering haphazardly through a strange place full of weird figures? Does he really exist, this Myrf, who is the guardian of all gates? Or Tremolo the protector of sounds, the wise and ancient Gropo? Is Beelhaalhar really after them, accompanied by his nightmare legions? Can Tora Daar be freed? Must Moritz really turn back time to restore Alfons to the world of the living?
