There are many strange creatures in Albert Flynn's new home at the center of the earth, but none are as awesome as Albert himself. He's learned he's a Balance Keeper—someone with special magical skills for fixing problems in three underground Realms. His new job in the Core is important; if the realms of Calderon, Belltroll, or Ponderay fall out of balance, the world above could be in great danger.
Albert and his Balance Keeper teammates Birdie and Leroy arrive in the Core not a moment too soon. There's an Imbalance in Calderon that's threatening to bury New York City in a mountain of ash. They must train hard if there's any hope for restoring balance.
They must also harness the power of their Tiles—unique superpowers given to each Balance Keeper. Birdie and Leroy have their powers down, and much to their dismay, so does Hoyt, their archrival in the training competitions. Albert . . . well, Albert's mastered the art of not mastering his Tile.
With the situation in Calderon growing worse every day, can Albert, Leroy, and Birdie restore balance before New York is destroyed forever? Will Albert master his Tile before it's too late?
