Wizdom didn’t know dragons really existed. He’s never ridden a white woolly mammoth or flown on a griffin. He’s never known a real king or a princess or been friends with a goblin. Wizdom’s never seen elves that glow blue all the time. All he’s ever known are his adoptive mother and his aunt Kayden. One day he finds himself in a secret world, face to face with dragons and fire monsters. He meets an interesting girl, Pandora, who he learns is no ordinary girl, just as he is no ordinary boy. Wizdom soon finds himself on a magical journey full of secrets, sorcery, danger and evil. He fights many fierce battles and faces certain death as his quest leads him on an adventure like never before as he discovers his true identity . . . or does he?
At the end of the day as the sun burned bright red in the violet
and crimson sky, they reached the edge of Saldor and were entering the
Realm of Talagand. The land grew heavier and the ground underfoot
was much rockier. There were colossal boulders strewn about, making
it difficult for the mammoths to continue on, as they could barely fit
between them. The mountains grew nearer and went high above the
clouds, their jagged peaks thrusting sharply upward, almost unnaturally.
Wizdom stared up at them having never before seen anything quite
like them. They were truly imposing and creepy. As they traveled on,
the clouds intensified as the sun tried to peek out between them.
Suddenly, as they were walking, a loud roar was heard in the sky
above them. “DRAGONS!” shouted Pandora hysterically. “Merle!” she
Quickly, Merle put up a force field, but there were too many
dragons. There were nearly twenty all together. Pandora even
recognized some of them. She had seen them in friendlier days, before
Lord Bregolien had put them under his evil spell. They flew over head
shooting fire and swooping down low trying frantically to grasp them
in their deadly claws. One large, fierce, green dragon came very close to
catching Rupert’s mammoth in its talons, but only managed to snatch a claw full of white hair.
“Wow, did you see that, brother?” Rupert said excitedly to Merle.
“He almost got me!” Suddenly, the same dragon came in for another
dive. “Look out!” Rupert shouted to Merle.
But Merle was ready. He had his force field up like a shield and
Puck and Wizdom were right next to him on their mammoth, Puck
joining forces to make the force field stronger. The dragon crashed into
it with a loud thud before recovering and flying back to the rest of the
dragons circling overhead, readying for another strike.
As Wizdom, Puck and Merle recovered from the sonic boom
created by the dragon’s impact on the force field, they realized all the
woolly mammoths had turned and faced together in a circle, while
their companions were still sitting on their backs. “Hold on!” Willow
said to Wizdom silently.
“Hold on!” he yelled to the others, as Puck looked at him frightfully…
