Megan and Ainsley have lived next door to each other their whole lives, but their relationship is anything but neighborly. Ainsley is the cutest, most popular guy in school, and even has a group of girls who call themselves his fan club. Outspoken and fiery, Megan is an individual who thinks Ainsley is full of himself-and she doesn't mind letting him know what she thinks.
The two stumble upon a neighbor who is performing some sort of strange magic, and find themselves transported into a magical new world. Stuck together in an unfamiliar land with no escape, Megan and Ainsley encounter floating cities inhabited by magical creatures of all kinds-and find themselves pursuing a thief who has stolen a staff with magical powers. Can Megan and Ainsley work together to find the staff of power and save the kingdom, or will they find that there is no escape from Arylon?

While eavesdropping, they are transported through an interdimensional portal to the land of Arylon where they discover that their neighbor is really a powerful wizard and a king of the Silverskin family, sworn to protect the Staff of Lexiam, a magical relic used to control the elements and open portals to other worlds. While waiting to return home, the kids become involved in a quest to return the Staff after it has been stolen. During their journey they meet a variety of strange creatures, talking animals, and magical peoples.
