Zack has no idea that he is trapped.
For twelve years he has lived in a safe society that has cut itself off from the rest of the planet. A century before Zack was born his community secluded itself by building a thirty-foot wall of mortar and stone. No windows or doors led to the outside world. No one entered; no one exited.
Young Zack is completely content in his community until he is enlightened by a soon-to-be-expelled criminal. The lawbreaker treats his day of punishment as if it is his ticket to independence. Zack had never thought about visiting the world outside Magnus Kir, but after a series of events including a run-in with the king, he finally gets his chance.
Magnus Kir is the tale of his hesitant escape.
This wonderful story is a true delight in the spirit of C.S. Lewis that is intended for middle grade readers but is enjoyable for readers of all ages.
