In this third adventure, the Emerald Eyes wizards and talking birds find themselves in a land a millennium back in time. Xentrix the dragon is with them and they rescue a flying girl about to be sacrificed on a pyre in front of a pyramid.
She is Kondel a Pyram, a humanoid creature with wings who live inside magical pyramids. The enemy in this world are ancient human priests determined to eliminate all flying creatures from their land. Birds have already disappeared and it appears that Kondel is the last of her species left.
But is she?
Cindy, Sylvia and the others set out to find the truth about the evil priests and search for Kondel's kind. Will their magical powers be enough to overwhelm the priests who appear immortal with the ability to travel through time? And why are the tiny birds so important in this latest quest?
Note, this is a complete story in its own right and can be read even if you have not followed the earlier Emerald Eyes adventures.
