Malidon has captured the iron forges of Suther, stemming the flow of weapons to the rest of the world. Averil, now Aum’s Chief Trader-Diplomat, must find the Winged Spear of Iraz, an ancient magical weapon that could finally defeat Malidon and save Averil’s world from destruction.
But the spear is lost. Its custodian, the Beast of Dreyon, helped Averil once. Will it help her again? Does it know the whereabouts of the Spear? Can Averil uncover the secret before all is lost to Malidon’s malicious powers?

Fans of video games, movies and comic books will love this book.
Set in a near real world where things go wrong despite the hi-tech gear. A group of agents and commandos called the Foundation engage in a hi-tech chase after a villain who has stolen DNA and designs for robots and advanced weapons. As the story develops a sub-plot of alien and sentient computer influences is revealed.
Here is an announcement from the head of The Foundation:
This is the Brigadier, don't just sit there jump to it! Krankhausen's on the loose again and we need your help to track him down. While you're at it find out what's so special about this Sean Yeager. You may borrow a Foundation vehicle, but Professor Quark wants it back in one piece, do you hear? Oh and keep Mrs Yeager at arm's length, she's still upset about her missing husband. Don't involve the police either they're not too keen on our carrying weapons ever since we blew up that island, I mean building. Yes you can call in the commandos if you need them, but don't vaporise anything or anyone important. I've a very prestigious opera gala to attend and I could do without any embarrassing questions. Still here? Call yourself an agent?
'Rocket-fuelled mayhem that keeps you guessing to the last page.'
'A roller coaster ride of surprises.'
