A rip-roaring tale of love and high adventure which begins in the sleepy English village of Wall, so called for the cobblestone wall that keeps the villagers safely apart from the supernatural parallel universe that lies on the other side. Tristan Thorne makes a promise to the prettiest girl in the village, whose heart he hopes to win, that he will bring her back a fallen star. To do this, Tristan must cross the forbidden wall and enter a mysterious kingdom lit by unending magic and unfolding legends of which he will become a part.
