FastFlight 540: Stuart Bump 


Hang on tight! The adventure continues! 

Xander is fighting the Shadow Wars and Anslie has gone into hiding at Drury Academy with her son, Stuart. An explosion has split the sky! A flash of light brighter than any that had ever been seen by human eyes has torn through the atmosphere and lit everything with a blue light, eerie and foreboding. No one heard the explosion nor saw the light, but something has changed. Somewhere a door has been unlocked.Someone has opened it.


One dark, dreadful shadow has slipped through unchallenged. Then another… and another… The shadows are coming! What can be done? Only someone who is from both worlds, N.O.D. and L.O.R., can lock the door again—someone like Stuart Bump.
