The author, Wayne Thomas Batson, teaches English and reading in Maryland. His writing is clear and imaginative. I equally enjoyed his previous project, The Door Within. The Rise of the Wyrm Lord taught me that the littlest decision that I make can influence the world. I recommend this book for ages nine to 14. Estee Wells, Christian Book Previews.com
