Carmine is but an ordinary teenager. He doesn’t have any powers, isn’t the heir to a magical kingdom, and isn’t usually paid attention to. He’s not even at ease in his own body, and his family is far from ideal. And yet he is going to live a great adventure.
When Carmine is unwillingly taken along into shenanigans that have been going on for a millennia, when real life and dreams mix up and when his favorite character comes to life, he will need to face frightening dangers and journey through many fantasy worlds in the depths of his imagination. To free themselves from the hold of the cruel and dangerous Jabberwocky, Carmine and Starlight Blade will fight a battle that will change their lives, and maybe meet their end…unless Kanzer, a strange persona stuck between worlds, is able to help them.
Will they save Wonderland from destruction?
