Maldene II: Mysteries Of Olde by Mark Anthony Tierno
The second novel in the Maldene series, it begins with the most important thing to come out of their adventures of the first book: a simple looking map. An indestructible map in an unknown language that starts them on a quest to seek out answers from the fabled Great Sage at the Foot of the World.
And yet, these answers are only the beginning, for it puts them on the road to the most incredible secret anywhere on or off Maldene. A terrifying awe-inspiring revelation that provides the first clue as to the real goal of the villainous Miro. For the time of the silence of the world is at an end.
Yet, during their incredible journey, other events are afoot. For Miro's minions are active, increasing his hordes and readying up for an inevitable war that the King is tasked with trying to counter. And yet, for all the long millennia that Miro has been around– he the cause of many a civilization's collapse and well able to have no doubt conquered the world many times over by now– why hasn't he? What's stopping him and what is he really after?
That map will lead our heroes to more answers than they knew they had questions for.
