Set in the mysterious world of Sagaria, this enchanting tale of adventure and friendship will charm teens and adults alike and is the latest novel in the Sagaria Legends series. When young Sagandran Sacks learns from Grandpa Melwin of a portal that leads from an abandoned forest well to the magical world of Sagaria, he doesn't know whether to believe it or simply dismiss it as another of his grandfather's tall tales. But when Grandpa Melwin is suddenly seized during the night, all clues point to that well in the forest. Hot on the trail of his grandfather, Sagandran finds himself transported into Sagaria, which is indeed every bit as wondrous as Grandpa Melwin had described. But it is a world under threat. A horrific despot, Arkanamon the Shadow Master, is rallying all the forces of the bleak Shadow World with the aim of conquering Sagaria and putting its inhabitants to the sword. Saving his grandfather from the forces of Evil seemed a tall enough order for one young boy, but now he is expected to save a whole world or, rather, three worlds for, once the Shadow Master has both the Shadow World and Sagaria in his thrall, he plans to extend his conquest to the Earthworld. Enthralling and imaginative, with characters that will delight readers of all ages, this charming novel is set in the world of Sagaria and follows The Tides of Avarice, John Dahlgren's first book in the Sagaria Legends series.
