He doesn't realize he's being tracked by his worst enemy, the sorceress who abducted him as a baby and blames him for her husband's death. Treacherous Ethelda thinks Dirk has her fiendishly powerful wand and she'll do anything to get it back. The Roman Army wants the Wand of the Black Sphere, too, worried Ethelda will use it against them, and they're looking for Dirk, the last one seen with it. But Dirk's halfway around the world dealing with monsters and magic they couldn't imagine.
Packed with intrigue and humor, this final book in the illustrated Dragon Lad trilogy joins <em>The Thirteenth Egg</em> and <em>Tale of the Talisman</em> for spectacular storytelling.
Dorg hatches small due to a magic curse. A tough start in the biting, clawing, flame-spitting world he lives in.
At first, all he wants to do is end the curse, so he can be like the other dragons. But friends and enemies help him see that being a big, mean dragon isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. Along the way, he encounters a mysterious pendant, shapeshifting dragons, a grouchy witch who loves wildlife, an absentminded wizard, and a swarm of friendly insects.
Heartwarming and humorous, this book is the first in a trilogy of stories about learning to live in harmony with one’s self as well as with nature. An egg-straordinary fantasy awaits the reader . . .
