Nikolas and Company: The Merman and The Moon Forgotten (#1) by Kevin McGill
Nikolas Lyons is the only hope for the city of Huron, the cradle of all magical civilization. Oh boy.
“The Rones lie about their true intent. They enter the city of Huron at the peril of us all.” – The Voice of Huron
After hearing the cry for help from a strange woman, fourteen year old Nick Lyons and company are transported from a space age future to a mythic past when Earth is tethered to the fantastic world of Mon, or as we have come to call her, the Moon. He soon learns that the city of Huron, with its fire-breathing winged lions, volcano-born nymphs and magic so thick in the air you can breathe it, is the cradle of all magical civilization. More so, Nick Lyons is the steward. There’s only one problem.
When Nick gets involved, things tend to go awry—burning down the neighbor’s greenhouse kind of awry. And so no one believes him when he says that an evil lurks under the cobblestone streets of Huron. To make matters worse, his best friend, Xanthus, is infected by a mysterious creature while aboard the Mottle Craw.
Nick finds himself tasked with finding a cure for a sick Xanthus and protecting the city of Huron from the mysterious creature most foul.
