Meet Alexander Drake, a curious young man living in a drab, oversized mansion with his secretive father. He spent his days playing alone. In the back of his mind he wondered what happened to his mother, and why his father was tight-lipped about the past; but secrets have a way of getting out.
It all started with a stay at his grandmother’s cottage. Alexander found strange clues tucked away in his father’s old bedroom. With a mysterious key and several maps in his pack he set off on an innocent search for answers about his family.

Join Alexander for a thrilling adventure in Azra’s Pith, a place of beauty and magic… but beware—something evil lurks in the shadows.
In the very early hours of the morning, it was still dark in the forest around his grandmother’s cottage. Twigs and leaves crunched under his shuffling feet. The forest was quiet, convincing Alexander that he was alone. He peered into the darkness. The cold air brought color to his cheeks. Suddenly, the branches just ahead of him rustled.
A wicked cackle broke the silence.
Alexander’s eyes grew wide.
“Stop playing games! You’re not funny!” His chest tightened like a fist.
The trees surrounding him rattled, and several sets of beady yellow eyes pierced the darkness pointing directly at him. One set of eyes narrowed, giving Alexander an evil stare—
Alexander darted through the trees, knocking a few of the creatures out of the way. They flailed about, exposing their raven-like silhouettes. Wings flapped inches from the side of his face. He tried to run faster, kicking up the dirt with his large feet. The ravens yanked at clumps of hair with their curved beaks.
Specks of light appeared out of the air, quickly surrounding him. There were billions of them tickling his spine and bustling through his hair. The lights were playful and buzzing with energy. Alexander was breathless. He stopped running and allowed them to shield him from the ravens.
His innocent investigation was quickly becoming a strange and terrifying adventure….
