Neal, Julie, and Keeah are on a quest to find the wizard Galen and his all-powerful Moon Medallion. But this is no ordinary mission, for the Moon Medallion is hidden in no ordinary place. It's somewhere in Ut, a magical city in a bottle that only appears once every one hundred years.
Fortunately, as a genie, Neal can travel through time. But he'll need a little help from his fellow genies to find the Medallion. To prove himself, he must complete seven difficult trials. Will he pass the genies' test in time to save Galen?
“I thought I felt something. But they’re just children playing with marbles.” “Uh … no,” said Dumpella. “Those aren’t children. And those aren’t marbles.

The giant obelisk exploded into a thousand pieces. “What —” gasped Julie. “Ungast!” the dragon howled. Still wrapped in chains, Gethwing staggered out of the hole.

A hundred years? Twins? “I’ve got it!” Neal said. In a flash, the bright little library of Julie’s brain vanished, and both he and Julie were back in the Winter Room with everyone else. Blinking her eyes open, Julie glared at him. “Neal, were you just rummaging around inside my head?” He grinned. “I

Now they numbered in the thousands. “Okay, look,” Neal said. “Ut usually appears once every century. The sun strikes the bottle, it shakes like crazy, and out it comes. Today, we’ll need a temporary spell to make it appear. I’m pretty sure there’s one in my scroll.” “While you conjure Ut, I’ll create a shield to keep the wingwolves out,” said Keeah. “And I’ll create a dust storm,” said Julie.
“Dumpella?” “Nealie?” All at once, a voice bellowed down from above. “GUARDS, FIND THOSE KIDS!” “Get down,” whispered Dumpella, pulling Neal to his knees. “Here comes my brother. Wait till you see him!” Duke Snorfo did come. But instead of his usual ornate carriage and pilkas — whoosh-voom! — the boy with the face identical to Neal’s flew overhead on a big red genie urn. “Whoa!” Neal said. “How can he do that?” “Magic,” said Dumpella. “And look what he’s got on.” Duke Snorfo, scowling
