   schema:description "Steven Taylor is bored. As assistant manager at the First National Bank of Idaho Springs in Colorado, he makes the unexpected discovery of a 135-year-old safe deposit box while wading through a basement full old ledgers. Finding the key should be difficult, but it is not as arduous a task as deciding whether he should breach the bank's code of ethics and open it. When Steven does succumb to his overwhelming curiosity, he finds far more than he could ever have anticipated - not least a portal to the mysterious world of Eldarn. He and his roommate, Mark Jenkins, drawn inexorably into this land filled with magic and mysticism, discover Eldarn is wild and beautiful, rich in culture and traditions - and oppressed by Nerak, a monstrous dictator with a lust for power. In their search for a path back to Colorado, the pair join forces with Eldarni partisans struggling to battle the ancient evil behind Nerak's reign of terror. And all too soon they discover the fate of Eldarn hinges on them - and their ability to find a way home."@en ;
