If you love dragons and magic, then this is for you!
There's something odd about 12 year old Toby, and it's not just his purple eyes or his amazing ability to talk to Klel, the dragon tied up in the castle courtyard.
He's been sacked from every job at the castle and his new job as page to the mysterious Prince Blase is his last chance to avoid a cold winter in the poorhouse.
Then Toby learns a terrible secret that Blaise holds in a stone pendant and the prince's deadly plans for Klel. But Toby finds he has amazing skills that might just be able to help...
