Heroes are not made from those who choose their destinies, but fromthose who prevail over what fate has dealt. ~Prince Talon Bishop~ Bring the package or don t come at all. Thus begins a quest for three young apprentices. A quest to guide a magical creature whose gift can be a blessing or a curse. These four misfits will traverse a continent, battle soldiers, brigands and mages: cross wits with princes, spies, Elves and the most feared creature known to exist. Friendships will evolve and one hero will be pushed to the brink of insanity. All this to bring about a power only one man dared imagine. With the fate of an Empire in the balance, untried hands must solve the enigma known only as... THE DRYAD PROJECT .
