Overview

When fifteen year-old Gladius Oldmont is thrust from his peaceful home into the dangerous Longwood Forest he finds himself pitted against a tyrant who has been terrorizing the lands in search of answers to an ancient secret that could unlock absolute power.

From the shadows of Longwood Forest to the Hills of the Moon, Gladius must survive encounters with a near extinct scimitar cat, an ornery dragon, a horde of death bats and a tumultuous underground river which leads to a subterranean labyrinth of tunnels. Along the way, he makes new acquaintances and discovers the true meaning of friendship, including Elle - a girl who captivates his heart.

Can Gladius and friends solve the riddle of the ancient secret before the evil Mulhurt does? If they can, will they be able to do anything about it?

Meet the Author

J. A. Paul started writing short stories ten years ago. He spent many years learning the craft of writing through the constant study of books and articles on writing. He also enrolled in and completed a two-year writing correspondence class along with various other online writing workshops. Then one day someone told him to choose three things and write a story around them. He chose a dragon, a tree and a ruby and from the seed of that idea, the story of Gladius grew. When he started writing Gladius, he wanted to create a fantasy adventure novel that would encourage preteen and teenage boys to read more. He also wanted to show his three sons that if you set your mind to something it can be done.
