The humorous young adult fantasy series comes to a close as a young prince begins a heroic quest—he just doesn't know it yet.
One day, Daystar's mom, Cimorene, hands him a magic sword and kicks him out of the house. Daystar doesn't know what he is supposed to do with the magic sword, but knowing Cimorene, he's sure it must involve a dragon or two!
"Volume number four opens 16 years after Calling on Dragons...with King Menenbar still imprisoned in his castle by wizard's spells, and Queen Cimorene living quietly at the Forest edge, raising their son Daystar...until he's old enough to wield the magic sword and free his father...The characters and their effervescent dialogue continue to charm."—Kirkus Reviews
