The fate of the Dragon Lands are at play. The knights of the Lightraider Order disappeared nearly two generations past. Now, the Keledan have withdrawn behind their barriers, and the Dragon Lands of bordering Tanelethar are overrun with dark oppression. The people are living in disobedience to the Rescuer who freed them long ago. A shepherd boy, Connor Enarian, and four young initiates rekindle the fires of the Lightraider Order in the hope of striking out across the mountains into Tanelethar to destroy a portal and stop an impending invasion. Once in the Dragon Lands, Connor learns that the key to success lies with a missing Lightraider spy and his lifelong companion, a talking silver wolf. Can Connor and his friends find the spy before the portal grows too large to destroy? Or will a local young woman-or Connor's own family history-betray them? The dangers and secrets of Tanelethar test both trust and loyalty, and to save his homeland, Connor may have to sacrifice his innermost dreams.Show more

Britain signs an unthinkable treaty with Spain, and this is the change in the political winds that the crooked governor of Jamaica has been waiting for.

The map lies in the garrison capital of Port Royal. To recover it, Thatcher must risk the noose. Worse, he must risk a run-in with the one woman he can’t resist, Lady Kate Pendleton, the governor’s daughter.
