Daniel Shires and the Multiverse
What’s it about?
It’s about a hidden part of the universe - a powerful secret which affects us all, yet none of us can see.
It’s about a ten-year-old boy named Daniel who discovers it and uses it to travel to other worlds full of strange creatures.
It’s about a man named Fate who also knows the secret and has used it to cheat death for five hundred years.
The secret that only Daniel and Fate know, is the existence of three invisible lines which connect us to our universe. Each of us has a North-South line, another for East-West, and a third for Up-and-Down.
Each time we make a complete turn, we have twisted one of these lines and wrapped the other two around us. If we turn back around in the other direction, we can untwist the lines, but since they are invisible, we don’t know to do this, and we get more hopelessly entangled every day of our lives.
Every few hundred years, entirely by chance, one lucky individual finds himself untwisted, and witnesses firsthand its powerful effects. It exerts a strong psychological influence on anyone within range and sends animals into a frenzy. It also endows its possessor with unnaturally good fortune.
Fate is one of these untwisted people, and until he meets Daniel, he thinks he’s the only one.
Daniel has not only discovered the lines, but unlike Fate, he can also see them. Together, they must stay one step ahead of a murderer named Vogel who has had his lines completely severed - an unfortunate state which has its own set of side effects.
There are dangers at every turn! Strange people, strange worlds and even stranger creatures!
