Jack's best friend, Charlie, is in serious trouble, possessed by an ancient demon called the Scourge who plans to use Charlie to bring about its evil ends--which, unfortunately, involve the destruction of the entire universe. Now Jack and the butt-kicking, sword-wielding Esme must contend with floating sharks, intelligent jelly, oversized centipedes, gladiator pits, and vomiting bats, all for the sake of saving Charlie from the Scourge. And, hopefully, saving the universe from total and utter annihilation.
TIM (that's Tyrannosaur: Improved Model), is the product of a top-secret military experiment, and up to now he's been living in a comfy lab beneath London's Trafalgar Square. But his world is about to change. Humanity is facing the greatest threat it has ever known: the brilliant, demented Professor Mallahide and his growing swarm of vicious nanobots. Tim must form an unlikely alliance with fourteen-year-old Chris and his classmate Anna-Professor Mallahide's daughter-to prevent our whole planet from becoming one seething tide of machines. The stage is set for the smackdown of the century. Who will prevail-the awesome, all-consuming Mallahide and his swarm? or TIM, DEFENDER OF THE EARTH!
