Antares De La Vega is an adventurer at heart. He dreams of journeying across burning deserts, trekking through wild and uncharted jungles, sailing the furthest reaches of the seas-and yet, he’s never stepped foot outside of South Florida.

Until strange creatures come leaping out of lightning bolts to kidnap him.

Locked away in a secret prison in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle, Antares meets Magdavellía, a mysterious and iron-willed girl who opens his eyes to a shocking truth: this world is a far different-and weirder-place than he’s been led to believe. Every strange rumor, every wild theory, is based on truth.

After they escape the prison, Antares and Magdavellía must set out beyond the edges of any map in search of a legendary artifact-and Antares’s parents, who have been missing most of his life. The two of them must wield geometry and alchemy, outsmart molemen and mermaids, and outrun fiendish outer space aliens . . . all while attempting to solve a riddle as old and mystifying as the sun.
