Everyone in Avantia knows the terrors of the jungle: creatures that pluck men from the ground and eat them whole; plants whose rich scents could overwhelm a person at twenty paces. Few dare to enter--and fewer still return.
But Tom has no choice. The next stage of his journey lies at the very heart of the jungle, where a terrible creature resides, evil as the wizard who created him.
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!
