When the security director of the powerful corporation Nebulaco dies under mysterious circumstances, courier Sai Collins has one last top-secret delivery to make on his behalf. Sai has come a long way from her street-kid childhood, but she has her secrets - namely that she’s a cyber-psi, a computer telepath who can connect to the grid without hardware. A talent she’s going to desperately need.
Ruuan is a very large dragon. Twelve-year-old Greg Hart can't slay a dragon. He'd be lucky to win a fight against one of the smaller girls at school. But now the magicians of Myrth have mistaken him for a legendary warrior, so they've yanked Greg into their world of sorcery and danger. Nothing will stop the people of Myrth from believing Greg will rescue King Peter's daughter from Ruuan the dragon. After all, Greg has been named in a prophecy, and no prophecy has ever been wrong before. Until now.
Save a kingdom? Seriously? Twelve-year-old Greg Hart can barely save himself from the overgrown class bully, much less save a kingdom. And then only by running and hiding. But six months ago, Greg played a role in an unlikely prophecy foretold on the magical world of Myrth. Against all odds, he managed to survive. Now a second prophecy has been revealed, one featuring the "Hero Who Slayed Ruuan," and Greg is once again pulled into Myrth.
