Tom Taylor's father created the Tommy Taylor fantasy series, boy-wizard novels with popularity on par with Harry Potter. The problem: Dad modeled the fictional epic so closely to Tom's real life that fans are constantly comparing him to his counterpart. When a scandal reveals that he might really be a boy-wizard made flesh, Tom comes into contact with a mysterious group. Now, to protect his own life and discover the truth, Tom will travel the world, visiting places where fiction has shaped reality. In this volume, Tom arrives at Donostia prison in southern France and falls into the orbit of another of his stories, ‘The Song of Roland’. Unfortunately, it's a story that ends with a massacre...
