"A skillfully crafted novel, very highly recommended for its creative magical world and tangible vivid descriptions." -Midwest Book Review

Long ago, a fierce sea dragon sank a ship that carried two Corno d'Oro-Golden Horns-and their Keeper. The creatures-with power against darkness-were separated, and passed into myth. But now evil grows, for the cruel Lord Maldici guards a terrible secret in his mountain stronghold. He studies the black book of sorcery, and sends out spies to quest for the missing Corno d'Oro.

Vita is the youngest descendant in the long line of Keepers. Her magic must preserve the remaining Corno d'Oro in safety, for only its power can thwart the growing evil. Yet Vita is in danger of betraying her trust. Her best friend, the pirate Giovanni, struggles to break free of the gold-greed that enslaves his people. Only then can he aid Vita, and vanquish the dragon in battle. But when Vita wavers, Giovanni's life will be at risk in the dungeons of Lord Maldici. One other person will aid them: Marina, outcast daughter of a sea witch, searching for a home in the land of Verde. Overcoming their differences, these three must find the courage to save what they love most from the gathering power of darkness.
