Avantia burns in the fires of war. Derthsin's evil armies swarm the land, and Tanner and the Chosen Riders are all that stand in their way.

Will they encounter more Beasts on their treacherous journey to the Southern Caves? And will the dark forces that seek control of Tanner prevent the Riders from fulfilling their destiny?
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!

\t“What are you doing?” she asked, gazing into Tanner's face. “We cannot afford to help everyone we see. We're on our way to the Southern Caves, remember – for the mask? This type of thing is happening all over Avantia and we can't stop what we're doing every time we see a skirmish.”
\tCastor hid his dagger back in his belt. “She has a point, Tanner,” he said. “You know me, I love a good battle, but it's the mask we're after, and Derthsin.”"
