An allegorical fantasy series for pre-teens, teens and adults. Synopsis of Book I ("The King of the Trees"): "What do an old wooden box, a jeweled pendant and some mysterious, green-garbed strangers share in common? When Rolin son of Gannon is caught up in this riddle, his adventures take him worlds beyond the walls of his little log cabin. With the help of some grumpy griffins and a long-lost prophecy, Rolin and his friends trust the King with their very lives as they embark upon a perilous quest for the blessed Isle of Luralin. In the end, they learn that 'The greatest help oft comes in harm's disguise to those with trusting hearts and open eyes.'"
