|Plot Summary of Caleng and the Moonstone Pearl|
1st Books 2003, 322 pp.
Living in the Kingdom of Golad in the Land of Faye, Prince Caleng may be a purebred Faerie, but like youths of any species he is curious about everything. His goal is to become a great wizard even more renowned than the mighty Andrade. However, instead he finds himself leaving his home at Brzden Castle on a dangerous quest.
He seeks the legendary wizard Fyn'hazzmhn, banished by his father King Perret, many ages ago. For through the aid of the mighty wizard, Caleng hopes to rescue his missing father. However, the lad's odyssey takes Caleng far beyond the realm of faerie into a world full of hate, a land of mortals in which he is not only transformed into a human body, but could easily meet “mortal” death in this ball of confusion.
