The secret is out -- DROON is the series that kids, parents, and teachers are talking about! And with an eye-catching new design, this favorite series is more exciting than ever.

Everything in Droon is changing. Lord Sparr has disappeared. Ko and Gethwing have fled to the Dark Lands. And an old villain is back -- Ving, leader of the Hawk Bandits! This time, he has his twin sister in tow, along with her band of wicked pirates. Arrrg! They're snatching magical stones from all over Droon, and using them to build an enchanted passageway that will transport nasty dragons from the past into the present.

Can Eric and his friends put a stop to the pirates? Or will they be lost at sea?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Foucart
In the twenty-ninth book in the "The Secrets of Droon" series, Eric, Neal, and Julie are back in Droon to assist Princess Keeah, the wizard Galen, and their other friends. This time they find out that the magical stones of Droon are disappearing and they must find out what is going on. The friends go to ask Portentia, the oracle that lives in a rock, but find that she has been stolen too! Ving, the hawk-man bandit from Droon's past, is working with his twin sister, Ming the pirate, to build the city of Mokarto. In this quick-moving addition to "The Secrets of Droon," Eric, Neal, and Julie have to find a way to rescue Portentia, Princess Keeah, and others to keep Ving and Ming from achieving their goal. Fans of this fast-paced fantasy series will enjoy the newest edition and be scrambling to solve the next mysteries about Eric's vision and the forests of Jabar-Loo.
