Publisher's Summary

There’s someone kidnapping the street kids in Twynne Rivers!

DeFrantis is a young human girl living on the streets, trying to eke out a living in the sprawling city, and she has problems. First, after a botched attempt to steal a chicken, she’s on the run. Second, for some reason, someone other than the City Guard is trying to hunt her down. Finally, the poor kids she was trying to feed got sold off to slavers. She has to save them, but first, she has to find them!

Along the way, she gets help from strangers: Antonerri, a soldier turned heretic - Thissraelle, an elven mage girl; Granthurg, the studious giant; and Karendle, a half-dwarf wizard wannabe... But who is the Dragon’s Flame?  

This story is based on the setting and system of the table-top role-playing game, A Tale of Heroes By Mark Hansen, Brendon Hansen, and Jacob Hansen. It’s a family-friendly, story-driven system designed to help families enjoy time together. Roll dice - Build character.

Critic Reviews

“...Each of these characters emerges from wildly differing circumstances, and have unique perspectives and goals, which don't always neatly align with those of their companions, and in some cases can leave them wondering if they're even fighting on the right side. It's that searching and self-doubt - all while being swept up by larger events - that makes these players in this little drama so fascinating.” (Doug Bedwell, Author of A Counterfeit Princess and Robot Captain)

Great book

This book was fun. It is clean and would be appropriate for teens on up. Maybe a preteen. If you like fantasy you need to read this book. Upcoming new author.

The Irish accent from the reader, added to the story.
