Tanner, Gwen, Castor, and Rufus have already collected three pieces of the ancient mask that bestows the power to control all of Avantia's Beasts to the wearer. Only one final portion remains and it is being held in Derthsin's fiery volcanic lair.
As the group travels toward the furious showdown, Tanner is overcome with a thirst for the power of the Mask of Anoret. His struggle is amplified by the constant arguing between his friends. Only a united front of these four warriors and their powerful Beasts will be strong enough to defeat Derthsin and his army.
The fate of all of Avantia is at stake and Tom is determined to see that all of their sacrifice has not been in vain. But an unsettling premonition has been following Tanner's progress and the losses may have just begun.
Raves & reviews:
"This slim series starter is a good choice for youngsters fascinated by the struggle of good versus evil in the Lord of the Rings movies but not quite ready to take on Tolkien's voluminous text." —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"This first volume in a promising new series is fizzy, fast-paced adventure all the way... A slim, easy-to-read, high-interest offering that will be an easy sell to readers just venturing into chapter books." —Kirkus
