One boy's journey to save his village becomes a quest to save the Kingdom.
Everyone in Avantia knows the terrors of the jungle: creatures that pluck men from the ground and eat them whole; plants whose rich scents could overwhelm a person at twenty paces. Few dare to enter--and fewer still return.
But Tom has no choice. The next stage of his journey lies at the very heart of the jungle, where a terrible creature resides, evil as the wizard who created him.
