The Zephrusby William Hess
Sixteen-year-old Kuelo Reed experiences strange happenings. An evil, black-cloaked figure dominates his dreams. A hand reaches out from his television and chokes him. He discovers a severed head in his toilet. Kuelo doesn't know what's going on until Geed, a strange old man, appears in his living room. Geed explains that Kuelo, whose name means "spirited", must save the world from the evil one, Aquarius, who is ruining many lives and creating his own tyrannical rule.
Geed trains Kuelo with the skills of the earth's elements-fire, wind, and water-and Kuelo becomes a young sorcerer. Once Kuelo collects three precious stones, he can enter Aquarius's realm and stop his evil deeds. With the help of his new fairy friend, Nava, Kuelo is guided through this new world by her knowledge. The situation becomes even more serious when Aquarius kidnaps Kuelo's good friends, Cal and Kristi. Kuelo must use all of his resources to save his friends and humanity.
A fantasy for teenage readers, The Zephrus is a classic tale of good triumphing over evil. It shows the power of believing in one's self and caring for others as Kuelo fights for his friends and for what is right.

The Zephrus was a thrilling fantasy that kept this grandmother turning page after page, waiting to see what would happen to Kuelo, Cal and Kristi in each of their adventures.
