Tales, unlike stories, never lie. You see, a tale is an account of things in their due order, often divulged secretly, or as gossip. Would you like to hear one?—Lord Autumn

Carefully concealed within the nocturnal tales of Lily and Jasper Winter’s youth are hidden secrets only a child could believe. And believe they did. But now, as young teens, their Uncle Ebb’s disappearance has left many more questions than answers. Had he meant for them to discover the Moon Coin? Did he need them in the Moon Realm? Was it really possible that, by telling his tales, he’d actually been preparing them for the adventure of a lifetime?
