Arry Chronicles: Book Two: Ring of Destiny


The Arry girls are back with their second adventure – to find the Ring of Destiny.

Time leaps are common place for this trio of extraordinary sisters! They use their special chants and toe tingling escapes through portals to the Literal Literary Lands. Sometimes things can go disastrously wrong. In this time leap, instead of an expected journey to familiar places, one of the girls finds herself in the strange new land of Desert Dreams.

One year has passed, since the Peanut Butter incident and their flight to the Sea of Tranquility. Now on Saturday, 10th October 2015, the girls are preparing for their Baseball game in the Aardvark Park at Arryville. Harry and Larry are chatting behind closed bedroom doors about the latest boys in their lives – at last they have something in common. Barry, the youngest of the Arry sisters, and barred from the bedroom chat, is crying in her room. She is scared and nervous about her first game and she is angry with her sisters. Barry, in need of some courage, decides to try the time leap by herself. She has recently, and secretly, installed the free Time Leap app on her iPad Mini, along with a few other apps she thought would be useful for a journey to the otherworld.

Barry secretly time leaps into the land of Desert Dreams, and calls on the help of SkyBastian the great sea eagle, to fly her to the Alley of BaBa in the Valley of the Kings. She is seeking the Ring of Destiny – a talisman that will grant her three wishes. The Guardians of the Valley do not welcome strangers, let alone small girls, wearing strange clothes. These pompous creatures make her pass three challenging tests of skill, strength and stamina before they will grant her entrance. Barry smartly uses the special apps on her iPad Mini for assistance.

Barry learns how to rely on her own skills and finds the courage to enter the Alley of BaBa to find the Ring of Destiny. The ring is just one of many glittering gold items in the old temple and Barry must use her new skills to determine which one is the Ring of Destiny.

Barry is in real trouble when the battery power on her iPad Mini dies, and she is stranded!

Meanwhile, back at Banyalla Place, both Harry and Larry are searching for Barry! Mr. Gary Arry and Mrs. Mary Arry, long suspicious of the special talents of their daughters, question Harry and Larry about the portals, and get caught up in a time leap that backfires and tests the courage of all.

The Arry family time leap into the otherworld, believing that Barry may have travelled to her favorite Fantasy Forest. The landing is not at all smooth! The purple portal pulsates and sputters – they are catapulted into the kitchen of the Three Bears. There are menacing shadows throughout the Lands and huge cracks appear in the Forest path. Sinister black clouds crowd the sky and there is no sign of SkyBastian the great sea eagle!

Harry wants to seek help from the Dederang Dwarves. Larry is sure that Barry would have gone to find Little Red in the Fantasy Forest. They split up and work in pairs, agreeing to meet back at the Three Bears’ home, on the hour!
