“There’s a clock in the walls.” “Do you hear them ticking, ticking, ticking? We don’t know what it does except it’s something horrible.” He discovers his uncle is a warlock, and enters a world of magic and sorcery. But this power is not limited to good people: Lewis learns of Isaac Izard, an evil wizard who wanted to cause the Apocalypse so that he could see what happened afterwards. To do this, he constructed a magical clock with black magic, as long as it exists it will keep ticking, counting down to doomsday.
“So, you told Louis everything?” “Not everything. Have a look around, you’re perfectly safe.” “That’s safe?” “As long as it’s fed.” The evil wizard died before he could finish the clock, but he hid the clock in his house, where Uncle Jonathan now lives. Now Lewis and Jonathan must find the clock before it’s too late, and before Isaac’s wife, Selena, gets to it.
