Lurking in the Dead Peaks is Rashouk the Cave Troll. This Ghost Beast can smell out his victim's fear and after tracking them down he turns them into stone. It will take all of Tom's courage to capture Rashouk's piece of the Amulet of Avantia, but failure means never seeing his father again...
Adam Blade

Adam Blade is in his late twenties, and was born in Kent, England. His parents were both history teachers and amateur artists, and Adam grew up surrounded by his father's paintings of historic English battles which left a lifelong mark on his imagination. He was also fascinated by the ancient sword and shield that hung in his father's office. Adam's father said they were a Blade family heirloom.

Sadly, Adam does not have his own Ice Dragon or Ghost Panther. But he really wishes he did!


--- - ! 'From Beast Quest #21: Amulet of Avantia: Rashouk the Cave Troll

From out of the shadows came a creature more terrifying than anything Fren had ever laid eyes on. The Beast wasn''t much taller than a man, but was five times as wide, and his shoulders scraped along the cave walls.

Fren recognized the creature, but only from old stories he had thought were fantasy. "A troll!" he cried, stumbling backward as the Beast pounded toward them, his yellow teeth bared. Fren could see that the troll''s hands were the size of large spades, and that the fingers on his right hand had long, jagged yellow nails. "Run!" he shouted to Bly.
