Where the adventure all began...
HANDS SWEATING AND HEART RACING…
…only a three-headed dragon stands in his way. Elias’ only chance to find his answer is through the serpent.
Mystery, marvel, and magic take Elias on a journey of self-discovery. A boy on the verge of adulthood, Elias is forced to make a difficult decision, but he must go on a journey to find his answers. His grandmother prepares him for his quest that will take him from a poor Hungarian village into a supernatural world where he faces powers and mystical beings. There he must find Zoltan, a sorcerer, who can help him make sense of the omens along the path—like a three-headed shape-shifting dragon that plagues him at every move. Is this path a way to his heart—a way to his dream—the way to truth?
“... Swords, shape-shifters, and sorcerers all confront Elias as he seeks an answer to the most compelling question of all: who am I?” Dr. Leila Christenbury, Past President of the National Council of Teachers of English, former co-editor of the Assembly on Literature for Adolescents Review.
“...engaging, with a story that keeps you reading...full of creative and enthralling symbolism... I found myself getting lost in it... I did fall in love with the story.”
