The last kingdoms of Arcas possess enduring youth, beauty, and wealth but have slowly crumbled under the weight of endless apathy and a painful past.
The rising evil of Gurges Ater now threatens to reopen the ancient kingdom pillars created long ago as passageways between Earth and Arcas. With access to both worlds, Gurges Ater will quickly conquer the weak kingdoms and establish his own throne.
Can Jackson, along with a paranoid bear, a lone hunter, and the surviving seventh sister work together to protect both Earth and Arcas?
Or will the unlikely heroes allow their own fears, pain, and past to paralyze them as Gurges Ater opens the pillars and claims the throne?
Then DARKNESS. Cold darkness surrounded him everywhere. Jackson panicked. What did I do? Where did the light go? Finally, through his shivering worries of a frosty death, he remembered Cygnus’s instructions. The portal only stays open while all four fingers continue to grasp the corners of the transport gem. Upon holding the gem of Earth, he had released his precision points on the transport stone and shut the portal. Jackson blindly explored the jewel in his hand, pressing each finger on a point until light shot through the room again. He drew another door and ran back into the warm desert cave. Procyon was gone and Jackson’s fears grew wild again. After one last glimpse of the remarkable grotto-like pillar room, he ran back down the stairs to the cave entrance. The Hunter and Eltanin now fought face-to-face on the dry ground between Vega and the left mountain: flame meeting sword, snap chasing swipe. Procyon was already panting and paddling through the water to join his battling companions just as Sirius was violently thrown near the left mountain by the blunt swing and force of the dragon’s head against his body. Jackson dove back into the oasis to meet The Hunter for their final escape. But as Jackson swam, the dragon lunged at The Hunter, spewed a quick flame, and then whipped his tail around, knocking The Hunter flat on his 81 back. Before The Hunter could regain his footing, the dragon was on top of him. One large, clawed foot held down The Hunter’s legs while only the sword’s blade separated the dragon’s teeth from The Hunter’s face. Hot drops of spit flew down, sizzling the clothes on his chest as Eltanin snarled, roared, and snapped. “AHHH!” The Hunter bellowed in pain as the dragon put all his weight on The Hunter’s legs and reared up, flinging the sword into the water by swiping forcefully with one front claw. Eltanin then shot thick flames at Procyon who was nearing the battle. Awaking from his stupor, Sirius darted to join the fight while Procyon ran from the raging, fiery breath. “NOOOO!” Jackson screamed in anguish as he crawled onto the bank and watched the mighty Eltanin arch his neck for the final attack.
