Alison Pulido gets more than she bargained for when she cuts middle school. She follows a strange little man into another world. It’s a beautiful land where evolution breeds mythic people and animals. It’s a realm of satyr dukes and gnome rebels, giant priestesses and dwarf spies, noble unicorns and monster rats, along with cataclysmic floods, stone age battles, and imperial intrigues – all shaped by forces of history and science. Alison learns tales of all these wonders from her little man and his scholar companion. But Hominea is no safe place for a young Homo sapiens. Soon, Alison finds herself caught up in the other world’s struggle: in the battle between truth and ignorance.
