Readers' Favorite 5 Star Seal

Mud and mire shall birth a tree, 

A sprout shall grow of ancient seed. 

The five unite to break the one, 

The curse of man shall be undone. 

But brothers rise ere dragon's bane, 

The last shall smite the first again.

Orphaned at a young age, Song has grown up listening to his grandfather recite legends of the distant past. But it is his own history he seeks to uncover, particularly the events surrounding his parents' deaths. That is a secret closely guarded by his grandfather. Then Song discovers an heirloom that links him to an ancient prophecy. His destiny lies within the old tales he has scorned. Song must follow the path that killed his father.

A gripping tale of high adventure, noble characters, breathtaking settings, and literary prose, Song of the Mountain entwines the very best elements of children's genre in a story that has widely captivated adults. The story is rich and multi-layered, relayed in an old-fashioned, oral story-telling tradition and flavored with the mystique of the ancient Orient.
