In this first book of the Beacon of Light series, you meet Observer, a boy who races into misadventure faster than a greyhound. Who is this boy? Why has he come to Eagle’s Watch? And how is it that the first creature he meets can talk?
Here's just a peek at one spot he get's himself into.
I heard a deep growl. “Who are you, and what are you doing on my ridge?”
I turned as bravely as I could and found myself looking straight into Spiteful’s bared teeth. “I came to rescue the creatures you took from Forgetful Mountain.”
“Is that so?” He snarled, teeth jutting below his curled lip. “Well… let me tell you. They don’t want to be rescued.”
“I just found that out, Spiteful.”
“You seem to know my name.” The wolf circled around me. “And who are you?”
“My name is Observer,” I replied.
To learn how he gets out of this scrape, you'll just have to buy the book.
