Lucy and Dee: The Silk Road


Lucy wants an adventure. Dee needs money to help him find his missing parents. When a flaming bird leads them to a hidden road, and the lord of stone offers them a quest, the opportunity for both arises. In a land full of magic, dragons, and demons, all they have to do is protect a young emperor from an unknown danger-which would be a lot easier if he wasn’t a royal pain and an angry queen didn’t want him dead.

With the entitled ruler in tow, Lucy & Dee must find a way home with only a mysterious feather and a dragon-whisperer (who looks suspiciously like a hedgehog) their only defences against capture and maybe even death.
