Further details

With the amulet seemingly out of reach, a new opportunity to get home comes Brian's way when a fire sprite unexpectedly grants him a wish. But things get complicated when he meets a woman called Effandra. She seems perfect in every way, except for the fact she keeps a bizarre pet: an unhealthy cross between a chicken and piranha called a throck.

Soon Brian is caught in the jaws of a dilemma - should he go home, back to his mundane life in data marketing, or should he stay in Munty where, for the very first time, a woman thinks he's cool and interesting? He's got just 24 hours to reach a decision...
