Twelve-year-old Ethan Mason is focused on baseball, math tests, and staying out of Howard Russman's way. That is, until a mysterious puddle of green light appears in the upstairs hallway of his home. The light brings Ethan to the kingdom of Abentur, a beautiful world defended by a dragon against vicious invaders and Draykik, their brutal leader.
Ethan can't tell his parents or friends or anyone else about the new world he's discovered, because he has no way to prove, even to himself, that it really exists.
When invaders capture the castle and take him and the royal family prisoner, Ethan learns that he alone may be able to save Abentur. But should he risk his life for the kingdom?
"This adventure rides as smooth and as thrilling as the flight through the clouds on a mystical dragon" (Tonja Decker, Bookworm for Kids)
