No mundo que conhecemos, onde vive o garoto Artie Kingfisher, magos chamados Merlin, dragões que cospem fogo e espadas mágicas existem apenas em lendas e contos de fadas. Isso, porém, muda completamente no dia em que ele começa a receber, na vida actual, mensagens saídas de seu jogo de game favorito, chamado Outro Mundo.

Pistas misteriosas levam Artie até uma loja estranha, de nome estranho – A Torre Invisível –, onde ele descobre que nada em sua história é o que parece. O menino é nada mais nada menos que o sucessor do lendário rei Arthur, nascido no século XXI para terminar a missão que o outro não conseguiu levar adiante.

Ao lado da irmã, Kay, e carregando a célebre espada Excalibur, Artie cruzará o Outro Mundo – que não existe apenas no jogo – em uma jornada digna dos cavaleiros da Távola Redonda, enfrentando dragões, lobos famintos, poderosos feiticeiros e muitos outros perigos.
