TITLE: The Portal
GENRE: YA - Fantasy
Quinn, Jack, and Cam are on a journey to save their Realm from the Coven. Roybn, a sprite from the Athens Woodlands, says they have no hope of succeeding if they don't stop a theif who carries one of the ultimate powers of the land.
“Jack,” Quinn whispered, clutching at his arm. “They’re looking for a new Portal zone. Another place to drop the girls that the Rebellion doesn’t know about.”
Jack covered her hand and squeezed reassuringly. “It won’t happen Princess.”
Robyn continued, “No it won’t. Not if we can get the Mermaid Opal back. They are sending it to the Piper. Apparently there is another power to the stone, a power that could be the downfall of us all.
“The Piper?” Quinn inquired. “Not the Pied Piper?”
Robyn nodded. “The very one.”
“Bastard,” Jack swore. “I hate that son of a—"
“Sorry, he’s not one I would mess with again. Him and that stupid magical pipe. I can’t get within a mile of him.”
“Precisely,” Robyn chimed. “It’s his flute we should be afraid of. Oberon said the Mermaid Opal, contains the power of the sirens. When the sirens disappeared, the magic left over in the water was pulled into the opal like a magnet. The person who can unlock the siren’s song is master of a song so powerful no one can resist its pull.”
“But the Piper already has that power doesn’t he?” asked Cam, now steadily pulling the last body to the grave. “What would he need with the Opal?”
“The opal would intensify his own magic. No one would be immune him. The Coven will rise to power more quickly if the Piper draws all the rebels to him and dispose of them.”
