The Dark Lord has landed his intergalactic ship deep in the heart of the Sahara desert in preparation for his Skeleroff invasion of the unsuspecting and unprepared planet Earth. His ship carries the weapons and personnel he’ll need for the invasion—and a cargo of alien prisoners who escape in an ejection capsule during the landing.
Landing in the mountains only two kilometres from Powell Street, it’s no wonder the escaped aliens found their way to eighteen-year-old Winfred Cowell’s home—though too late. By the time Margaret Parof, one of the alien escapees, reaches Winfred, the boy has already been found. With Margaret’s help, Winfred barely escapes with his life, but not before taking the Mocrax, the Skelleroff’s most prized treasure.
Now, with all the power of the Dark Lord in pursuit, there’s no place on Earth to hide. Margaret must take Winfred to Portable Accommodation, her home. There Winfred must learn the extraordinary techniques he will need in order to defeat the Dark Lord. The fate of the world depends on it.
