Artist Celio Cross vanished ten years ago. Now, his last painting is up for auction, and everyone in the art world wants to have it. 

Craig Wolff, curator at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, is the only one whose life depends on it. He understands there is more to the painting than color and canvas. It is a way home to Suntaria, a world where fairy-tale characters live within reinterpreted stories, where a magic flute has the power to control nature and make wishes come true, where Craig's beloved wife and son still live. 

Desperate to return, Craig devises a plan to acquire the painting and curate a fairy-tale exhibit, hoping for a greater chance at leaping back to the world he knew. But when he's denied passage and Joel Cooper-a careless intern-mysteriously disappears and Emma Frost-Craig's assistant-soon follows, Craig is sucked into a whirlpool of lies and deceit that puts everyone in danger. 

Obsessed with finding a way home, he resorts to kidnapping and theft in order to defeat his enemies and finally reenter Suntaria where he finds it's not quite as he left it. With few allies left, he must pick up the pieces of a destroyed kingdom, hoping the magic he possesses will be enough to save it.
