The twelve cousins are transported to a distant world called Al Kiam. Their abilities can bring war or peace to the land, but first they have to get along. The twelve cousins fight about the old stone teapot Grandpapa brought back from the war in Iraq. Grandpapa says it may be magic; some of the cousins disagree while others believe his claim with all their hearts. While they go through the old ritual explained by Grandpapa, a swirl of light fills the room, followed by a wave of blackness. As the darkness changed to light, the twelve cousins realize they are in a different world: the world of Al Kiam. What's more, each cousin has acquired a strange, unique power, the purpose of which is unkwn to them. They soon learn they are surrounded by an ancient battle that threatens to tear the world of Al Kiam apart-unless they do something about it. No matter how much these cousins may love each other, they don't always agree. Deciding what they must do-fight the good fight or quickly find a way home-could tear them apart. With the fate of a world in their hands, however, the twelve cousins must learn to use their powers as one and solve the riddles of Al Kiam. By harnessing their newfound powers, they may become heroes.
