It’s a romping tale about good and evil, and the powerful role of two magic stones – an emerald for good, a ruby for evil. But the world’s technology has disappeared, and magicians are now in charge! The book is listed as a young adult fantasy…but adults will love it, too. There are bar fights and first love, with good dialogue. Craghead writes the way people really talk. And locals may recognize that the magician’s castle sounds a lot like HEARST CASTLE, and the demolished book room resembles MONTEREY LIBRARY!
This 228-page story is pure fiction, produced by Craghead’s fertile and excited mind that has spent a lifetime reading and imagining. None of the characters or events in this story are real. But that shouldn’t stop the noble reader from thinking about what is possible.
