The magic of The Tempest captivates 11-year old Will Shakespeare when he meets the colorful theatrical impresario Prospero in a quest to find four enchanted stones (including the illusive Holy Grail) needed to destroy the witch, Sycorax. Betts, Will's spunky friend, joins him in the hunt that leads to murder within the ancient monastery of the Knights Templar. While Will grapples with sorcery and ghostly apparitions, he also must confront the intrigues in the English court ruled by the iron-willed Elizabeth. In addition, Will’s tortured relationship with his father sends Will on an emotional ride and disaster looms when the Queen labels his father a traitor. Themes from A Midsummer-Night’s Dream, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet weave into the plot, as do memorable historical people such as the alchemist Leonardo da Vinci. With courage and determination, Will fights against the forces of evil that threaten him and those he loves. Through it all, the poet within Will sustains him on this adventure of magic and mystery.
