Teenaged George Lock didn't know what to expect when he went to live with Great Uncle Harry after both of his parents were killed in an apparent auto accident. The good news was, Harry's suburban Chicago yard was incredible forest and jungle, his huge quirky house was a treasure trove of magic elf books and other artifacts, and a really cute girl lived next-door. The bad news was that the forested backyard hid a portal to another universe that was inhabited by both elves and their more powerful enemies. Through it came immense Evil tainted Horde dragons that threatened all life on Earth, and an even more Evil witch with a taste for humans. According to ancient elf legends it was up to a White Dragon and his Chosen to stop the all-powerful Dark One and his Horde from consuming all life in the multiverse, and according to Harry the Chosen One might be young George.
