The Prince then learns of a dark plot masterminded by the evil wizard Rydell which gives him and those around him a deeper understanding of whom and what he is. Finally, when his dreams are once again interwoven with reality Darius and his dragons are lead into a perilous situation across the Helena Sea.
"Alright Darius Wolferton Prince of Scottshire, how much magic do you know?" asked Omni staring at the crystal ball.
"Um, well Omni, I don’t know any magic really. I know herbs and medicines and some potions, that’s about all."
"So you don’t know how to use that crystal ball?"
"No, no I don’t Omni."
The boys sat at the table and gazed into the orb. They were quite amused by the way the smooth clear ball magnified their surroundings when they looked through it. Omni put his hands around the cool surface of the crystal. Nothing happened.
"I guess you’re no wizard." Darius laughed.
Omni laughed too and urged Darius to touch the ball. Darius cupped his hands around the flawless transparent sphere. Suddenly the inside of the ball clouded up, startled Darius pulled his hands away.
"Did you see that Darius? Something happened! Do it again Darius!" screeched Omni with excitement.
Once again Darius place his hands around the crystal ball, and once again, it clouded up. As Darius kept his hands on the ball the brown and grey clouds began to swirl around. Remembering Rupert’s technique, Darius raised his hands ever so slowly away from the orb’s surface. When his hands reached about 4 inches away from the sphere the clouds started to form an image. In total awe the two boys watched as the image became more and more clear. Darius moved his hands back and forth and around the ball fine tuning the image.
"Who is that Darius?" asked Omni as he stared at the vivid image inside the crystal ball.
"It’s Igmorton." answered Darius.

First of all, it is a reader’s must, to read the first book. You can get lost otherwise. I would say that’s true of any book and its sequel and/or sequels. This book is a continuation of Darius Prince of Legend. I reviewed it earlier and I must admit I forgot a few things, but as I read the new story, I became renewed and familiar again. The land of Scottshire has prospered greatly, acquiring new lands to join in with the mighty kingdom. The king and queen are soon expecting a second little bundle of joy, anxiously anticipating Darius’s brother or sister. This story is most imaginative; the dragons acting like pet dogs. Darius generously shares his “pets” with friends and what rides they take! I found the clever part of seeking “Shadow Dust” to save character Igmorton quiet ingenious. My favorite parts of this book, however, are the final chapters where our hero Darius is off to find what I assume is a kidnapped Indian Princess, Red Fawn. Her father Chief Long Day, has a great name… unlike his not-so-likeable brother, Chief Crazy Squirrel? Suddenly we've become a cartoon character. But that’s not so bad. This book is a conglomeration of stories we’ve seen on film---Peter Pan, Lord Of The Rings, The Neverending Story, etc.
I think this book would truly satisfy teens and pre-teens that seem to clamor to these genres. It was good and entertaining, quite imaginative and fun. I give this book a four…it’s great.
