Description

"LaFevers sets up an effective fantasy realm, populated with likeable characters…. A good choice for readers not ready for Lloyd Alexander’s ‘Prydian books, which features a similarly young and appealing hero." —School Library Journal

Kenric’s homeland is in danger. Fierce Mawr hounds and grymclaws prowl the land and skies, and an evil power is on the rise. Lord Mordig has killed the true king and plans to rule Lowthar by forging a new blade of power. When Kendric’s father disappears, Kendric knows he must find him, before it’s too late.
