Pip and Tim have just moved with their parents into an old manor home, built in the 1400s. Hearing scratches and sounds in the wall that become progressively louder, Pip and Tim try to escape when they hear faint cries for help. From a trap door in the paneling in Pip's room, they find Sebastian. While he appears to be only 12 years old, Sebastian tells them that his father built their house. Sebastian's father was the alchemist in King Henry V's court. Using his father's elixir, Sebastian hibernates until it is time for him to awaken. Sebastian has awakened because he has learned that his father's old enemy, the evil alchemist de LoudEac, is operating in 2002. Sebastian, an alchemist himself, asks Pip and Tim for their help. The tension swells as the three try to stop de LoudEac before he builds the creature he believes will help him complete his foul plan. Soul Stealer is book 2 in the series.
