Gaylen, a simple farm boy, is coming of age and always dreamed of exploring Candlewood Forest.


He meets a wizard, suddenly finds himself inside the forest boundary, and his life becomes a fairy tale as destiny propels him into a world of wonder and danger.


The forest and its marvelous inhabitants are in peril as the evil wizardess, Murchesla Crona, plots to attack the forest and destroy the wizards of Candlewood.


Gaylen discovers family, makes friends with dragons and firesprites, and finds his first love. His adventures span two continents as he learns enough magic to rescue a grandparent, vanquish his enemy, and earn the respect befitting his new station in life.
