THE SECRET OF THE DRAGONS DOOR
Hazzah! The kingdom is buzzing with excitement as everyone prepares for the wedding of the lovely princess Flutterby to that handsome Knight, Sir Dishone. When the princess disappears into the Dark Forest, the King fears she has been taken by the dreadful Dragon. Three brave knights are chosen to face the dragon and return the princess: the handsome Sir Dishone, the mighty Sir Elfi and the helpful Sir Edy. To find the Dragons lair the knights must solve the riddles hidden in the forest to discover the secret of the dragon’s door. But things, and people, are not always what they seem. The journey to the Dragon’s lair is fraught with temptation and truth…intellect and illusion…sarcasm, silliness….and secrets.
To the Dragon, it’s all a game.
Relegated to the “look-out tower”, the impatient Sir Ryan waits for his chance to save his best friend, the princess. He may not be the strongest or the bravest or the smartest, but Ryan has the one thing the other knights do not…but he is keeping it secret…for now.
