The Chronicles of Irindia
Book One: The Gatherer
D. John Watson
Can one boy save a world?
There is another world, parallel to ours, in desperate need of a hero. Dark forces are trying to take control of a gateway that will change the face of both worlds. Lord Draga will stop at nothing to bring his Master into his world. The only thing standing between him and his goal is the strong will of the young Empress Alassa. He cannot take the gateway by force, it must be relinquished voluntarily. Draga has destroyed whole villages in his pursuit of the gateway. How long will Alassa hold out if the last surviving member of her family is in danger? But there is a prophecy, a prophecy that says a savior will come and defeat the evil taking over Irindia.
David Sanchez is like any other normal 13 year old boy. He likes sports, video games, and hanging out with his friends. His father has taken a new job, moving them 1500 miles from everything David knows and loves. His sister stayed behind to attend college and he thinks his life will never be the same again. He makes a silent, selfish wish, because he is angry thus changing everything.
In a world where magic is real and monsters roam, one 13 year old boy is thrust into a place he does not know to defeat a powerful wizard. Can he find the Stone of Irindia and save their world, as well as his own?
