The Heir of Kalanglasia
Abon is the type of boy who wishes for nothing more than to lead an ordinary life, meet as few people as possible, and abide by the will of his stern and unaffectionate Aunt Malor. Unfortunately, Abon is not an ordinary boy-he has magical powers that are rare and feared in the land of Afradaar.
It is those very powers that cause him to receive a strange offer from Sir Cultan, a fellow magician. The Dark Creatures, the enemy of the people of Afradaar, have amassed an army, and only magic can defeat them. Sir Cultan needs Abon's help.
Abon abandons all that he has ever known to join the fight against the Dark Creatures. Little does he realize that he is about to discover that he is even more unusual than the ordinary magician. Abon is the heir of a magical, long-lost civilization called Kalanglasia. When he learns of his prophecy and a sword is thrust into his youthful hands, Abon must learn to conquer his own nature to prevail over evil.
