|Plot Summary of Where Dragons Lie|
When Princess Sharlin hears her parents talking about the evil sorceress Rodeka, she knows that she must do something before she is sent away to save her kingdom. But Rodeka is so powerful that only a dragongod such as Turiana, who is long dead, can defeat her. Following the directions of her faithful gryphon, Sharlin sets out to try and find the dragon's graveyard so that she can defeat Rodeka. However, Rodeka finds her and hurls her out of her own time, hundreds of years after her kingdom has fallen into dust...
Dar is a commoner by birth, son of a solider and a dairy maid. His father is one of a few soldiers who survived his futile attempt to slay the evil sorcerer Valorek who is slowly taking over the kingdoms. When Valorek sees Dar and his fighting skills at the young age of eight, he knows that he has found a worthy host for his soul. He kidnaps Dar and trains him as a great warrior and slowly starts to take him over. Dar manages to escape and has been fleeing ever since...
Thurgood is a good wizard who has had his idealistic beliefs shattered by the forces of evil. The only way to get magic in this time is to bargain for it with a creature of magic, a dragon. Thurgood believed that it didn't matter where power came from, if you were good, you could shape it for good regardless of the source. Unfortunately, he is wrong...
These three are thrown together to take on the impossible sounding quest of journeying to the Dragon's graveyard to use the power there for their own means. Sharlin is going to try and raise Turiana from the dead and be sent back home; Dar needs a dragon's claw to sever the bond that Valorek has made with him; Thurgood wants desperately to destroy all dragons so that no one will have to suffer what he has suffered. All of them have their own aims, all of them will need to work together to accomplish them - but who will triumph?
