Arwin's finished university and his whole life lays before him. But there are so many choices and he's confused. None of them look appealing. Does he try to stick to his ideals about life, or sell out to become a corporate robot? Does he do his own thing, or try to fit in? He's got bills to pay and a girl to please but the future looks bleak. The pressures in life seem overwhelming.

Then things take an unexpected and dramatic turn. Everything seems to come crashing down around him, leaving him with a broken heart. Feeling down and hopeless, he suddenly finds himself travelling to a whole new world: Heartstone. There, he encounters Yaz, an undead skeleton on a thousand year quest to save his one true love, a princess, of course.

Is this a chance for hope? A chance to prove his inner worth? A way to give his life meaning and purpose, restoring his pride in himself?

But, (Gasp!) before they can set out on their journey together, they fall into the evil clutches of the gorgeous, sexy and brilliant Dark Enchantress! And she's got designs on poor, unsuspecting Arwin.

Will Arwin heal his broken heart? Will he find the answers to life? Or will he be eaten alive by giant spiders? Or turned into a toad? Read to find out!

Deadly, garrulous dragons; mysterious magic and brilliant science coming together to create magical science; crude humour and hilarious puns; multicoloured elves; a sexy nurse-shark; hidden tributes to pop and historical culture (can you find them all?); rousing tales of adventure; an evil but gorgeous spider queen; bone-crunching ogres; a talking skeleton on a thousand year quest to save a princess; the delicious gingerbread man; a naughty fairy who wants to see the world; and, of course, all kinds of hot nymphs.

The world of Heartstone includes silly comedy, fun adventure and a little romance and drama all mixed together. And, if we’re lucky, there’s a kernel or two of intriguing wisdom lurking within the pages that might just make you think.
