Kate is is charge. The oldest. The only one who remembers their parents. Promised to protect her brother and sister until they return. Michael is the bookish brother. Scrawny, bullied at every orphanage (his glasses somehow always end up in the toilet). Loves stories about magic, expecially involving dwarves. Emma is a pint-sized brawler. Devoted to her brother and sister. Thinks Michael is deeply weird. Will fight anyone who says so. Secretly threw Michael's glasses in the toilet, twice. With the discovery of an old leather book, an ancient magical prophesy is set in motion which will take them on the adventure of several lifetimes, to worlds outside their own.
