The third book in the imaginative DragonSpawn Cycle begins as Donavah and the red dragon Xyla narrowly escape the dreaded dragonmasters. Suddenly they are transported from the midst of a deadly battle to Stychs, a legendary and mystical land that looks just like Donavah’s home world―though just how and why she is there yields more questions than answers.Only dragons can move between the two worlds so quickly, and Xyla is now gravely ill from the strain. Donavah and her friends must undertake a treacherous journey to find the other red dragons if Xyla is to be healed. Along the way Donovah is kidnapped and cruelly imprisonedby a rogue magician, an ordeal that leaves her forever scarred. Rescued by the desert sages of Delaron, Donavah finally learns of her role in an ancient prophecy―a prophecy that must be fulfilled if maejic is to survive in Alloway.
