Origin Scroll: Targa Trilogy, Book 1 by Richard S. Tuttle
Origin Scroll is the first volume of the Targa Trilogy and the cornerstone of the epic fantasy Alcea Collection which spans sixteen volumes in three series.
Alexander Tork is an apprentice lumberman, a fifteen year old who is forced to take the lead when his village is attacked by a pack of vicious beasts. But darker things lurk in the lands of Targa and Cordonia, an evil questing for an artifact that will shake the very Universe. Alex, and two more unknown youths, Oscar and Jenneva, are the only ones who can prevent the end of their universe... they just don't know it yet.
