Set in the mysterious world of Sagaria, this enchanting tale of adventure and friendship will charm teens and adults alike and is the latest novel in the Sagaria Legends series. When young Sagandran Sacks learns from Grandpa Melwin of a portal that leads from an abandoned forest well to the magical world of Sagaria, he doesn’t know whether to believe it or simply dismiss it as another of his grandfather’s tall tales. But when Grandpa Melwin is suddenly seized during the night, all clues point to that well in the forest. Hot on the trail of his grandfather, Sagandran finds himself transported into Sagaria, which is indeed every bit as wondrous as Grandpa Melwin had described. But it is a world under threat. Before he knows it, Sagandran is tasked with saving not only his grandfather, but the whole world – or, rather, three worlds – for, once the fearsome Shadow Master has both the Shadow World and Sagaria in his thrall, he plans to extend his conquest to the Earthworld… Enthralling and imaginative, with characters that will delight readers of all ages, this charming novel is set in the world of Sagaria and follows "The Tides of Avarice," John Dahlgren’s first book in the Sagaria Legends series.
BLIMEY! It's something all pirates are taught when they're very young, but too many forget: never get on the wrong side of a librarian. Especially if the librarian is a lemming! Sylvester Lemmington used to read about cannibals, impenetrable jungles, lethal carnivores, mysterious fortune-teller, voodoo magic, cutthroat pirates, shipwrecks, mutinies, spaceships and much else in his books, but he never thought he'd encounter them for real. Can Sylvester save his sweetheart, Viola, her tough-as-nails mom and the other friends he's acquired along the way? Can he find his long-lost father, rescue his hometown of Foxglove from the murderous rule of its ruthless mayor and discover true happiness? Oh, did we mention that Sylvester has mistakenly received the most sought after treasure map ever? This means he also has to escape from the cruelest and craziest pirate captain who ever sailed the seas of Sagaria - the horrifying Cap'n Terrigan Rustbane who will stop at nothing to get his map back! A map that leads to a treasure beyond the wildest dreams of avarice. It's kind of a tall order, but then, Sylvester is a librarian..and a lemming.
