Overview

The unexpected death of their village�s Rune Master sets six young friends on a long journey to secure both their safety and for one of them to complete the necessary training and return as the new village Rune Master.

Things go awry for the young men as the danger that drove them from their homes relentlessly trails them from village to village, and other dangers that they meet on the road take their own toll. But the one danger they never expected to encounter was the awesome might of a Dragon.

Caught between the lives of their people and the wrath of a wounded terror, the haphazard mix of companions must make their attempt in the frozen mountains and place themselves between winged death and huddled villagers.

Will their strength and wits prove to be enough to meet the challenge of Pytherex Deathcoil? Can they decode a secret from old tales in time to use it to their advantage? Or have they taken on a task that is simply too big for any mortal?

Good read.....really enjoyed it! Lots of typos but kept my interest.

Very good story! A great mix of action and adventure, and some very good ideas to set it apart from others. A great book for anyone who has an interest in fantasy, or for anyone who simply likes a good story with fresh ideas. I’ll certainly be looking for more in the series!

This was an enjoyable fantasy fiction read. Dragons, dwarves, magic and mayhem. What's not to like? The people in the story were interesting and I want to read more books by this author in this series when they come out. The story stands alone but there are a few things alluded to that have me wanting to know more of the larger story. It's a fine book for young adults without being too simple for adults.
