After learning he had inherited an enormous mansion and a huge tract of land from a reclusive set of relatives, Steve Miller, along with his wife Sarah, decide to take a few days off to investigate their new-found fortune in the quiet resort town of northern Idaho, Coeur d "Alene. While taking inventory of the vast manor, they discover a unique set of doors on the top floor. Mistaking them to be an ornate decoration, the doors are accidentally activated, presenting the two new homeowners with a tantalizing decision: step through or ignore? What harm could possibly befall them if they walked through a simple door? Curiosity getting the better of them, they step through, sending both husband and wife on a one-way journey to a land of unimagined wonder!
Realizing they were now stranded on a world populated with creatures that should exist only in one's imagination, they enlist the aid of the local king and queen. Their troubles continue to escalate, however, as it is revealed their arrival had been long foretold by an ancient local prophecy, bestowing upon them the status of Royal Bodyguards to the young crown prince.
Stuck on a foreign world where mythical creatures abound, trying to avoid being attacked by griffins, and hoping to impress a living, breathing dragon, the newly appointed babysitters must find a way to return home soon before harm could befall the young prince.
Some days it didn't pay to get out of bed.

Coming face-to-face with the rarest wildlife Lentari has to offer, soaring high through the clouds in the clutches of the dragons, and trying to solve the most cryptic scavenger hunt anyone has ever seen, five dwarves are led on a quest to solve a mystery that has confounded their fellow dwarves for centuries!
Let the treasure hunt begin!
Pryllan is a new mother who has a problem on her claws.
Instead of basking in the newfound role of parenthood, which she and her absentee mate have desired for so long, she is instead shocked to learn that she, and her fellow species of dragons, face an unprecedented dilemma that threatens her very existence: a mysterious plague is running rampant throughout the wyverian population, rendering the typically unchallengeable dragons defenseless.
Risking the wrath of the (bite first, ask last) Dragon Lord, she contacts several human friends on their home world to beseech their help, only to discover the source of her problem hits closer to home than any of her fellow dragons would care to admit. Unwilling to abandon hope as the fate of her species looms ever nearer, dragon and humans launch their own investigation into who, or what, would be foolish enough to cross paths with the most intimidating species of the kingdom.
What they find hits closer to home than anyone could ever realize!
Add one magic-stealing goblet, half a dozen dimwitted trolls, and one conceited wizard. Then add one kidnapped member of the royal family, one concerned son, two bodyguards, a soldier, and an adolescent griffin. Throw in a pinch of green dragon. Mix well and you will have yourself one fantastic action-packed fantasy adventure set in the magical kingdom of Lentari!
Nearly a year has passed since the events of their first visit. Mikal, the young crown prince, is happy, healthy, and adapting well to living on a strange new world with his bodyguards, Steve and Sarah. However, a devious plot has been hatched, one that will force the young prince to return to his homeland.
When Steve gets a mysterious message that says a member of the royal family has been abducted, he makes the decision to return to Lentari with his wife so they could aid the rescue party. Mikal is left safe and secure back in Coeur d’Alene with Annie, Sarah’s sister, and Tristan, his tutor. When Mikal sneaks through the portal to try to help, his presence in Lentari becomes known and draws the attention of the dark wizard who desperately wants to get his hands on him.
Battling thieving invaders, outsmarting repulsive trolls, and trying to stay one step ahead of a wizard bent on acquiring Mikal at all costs, Steve and Sarah must use all the powers at their disposal to keep their young charge safe.
Seek ye not the protector’s wrath...
