A description of “Myrlyn¹s Gate.”

Vladimir Dragol XIII had an immense task convincing the world that he was not following in his bloody ancestors¹ footprints. So when the chance to prove himself came in the form of an attractive princess on a quest to save the world, how could he refuse? There was a slight problem in that the princess loathed the Dragol line. There was also the dilemma that several others alluded to in the prophecy wanted nothing to do with the venture, ­a dragonmaster trainee and wizard¹s apprentice.

On the other side of Myrlyn¹s Gate was another foretold member of the quest who had no idea what was in store for him, including a midnight raid on the Dickeyville Grotto in the strange land of Wisconsin. Together the quest mates would battle rogue dragons, a demented king¹s army and bikers at a bar in Bear River, Iowa.
