Publisher's Summary

This fast-paced, exciting, and emotionally rich fantasy novel for middle graders reads like a cross between The Phantom Tollbooth and Harry Potter.

How can 12-year-old Gabriel find his missing father, who seems to have vanished without a trace? With the help of Paladin - a young raven with whom he has a magical bond that enables them to become one creature - he flies to the foreboding land of Aviopolis, where he must face a series of difficult challenges and unanswerable riddles that could lead to his father...or to his death.

Critic Reviews
