Book VII in the "King of the Trees" series. Who creates the clouds and brings the rain? Ravaging the drought-stricken world of Lucambra, camouflaged dragons have trapped Prince Elwyn and the royal family inside their tower. Hope is dwindling when Elwyn unearths an ancient urn containing a cloud-riddle and a three-pronged staff, the keys to a long-lost treasure and clues to Lucambra’s plight. Fending off foggy foes bent on stealing the staff, Elwyn joins forces with a princess scarred by her dark past. Together, they set out to find the treasure and its rightful owner, Cumulon the Cloud King. In the end, they discover both peril and bliss beneath the Birthing Tree.

The Birthing Tree portrays Gaelathane’s perfect love as He molds the lives of a prince and princess into one.
