Description

When Willum, an apprentice book maker, has a nasty fall, he loses all of his memories…including the strictures concerning protective magic for the exquisite miniature dragons called Dragilios. Not knowing he is breaking the magic law, and sending the little Dragil, Malle, into deadly peril, he draws the friendly, little dragil.

The moment the picture is finished the protective spell shatters. Her anguished cry as she disappears restores his memory.

Devastated at what he has done and wanting to right the wrong or die trying, Willum undertakes a dangerous quest into the malignant world of the giant leather-winged dragons. Can he find her in time before she is ripped apart and eaten? If he stays too long in that lethal land, he becomes stone.

The hourglass sands are slipping away toward the doom of the boy and the fragile little dragil. Can he save them both?

Willum trudged up the steps to the drying loft. Being an apprentice for the papermaker and bookbinder meant he sometimes had long, weary days. It was exhausting work to carry the big deckle frames up to the racks at the top of the shop because they were heavy and dripped. He had to carry them flat since they were only lightly pressed, otherwise there was a chance of having the contents shift or slump in their flat cages. His master wouldn’t be pleased if he had to make the paper sheets all over again. With so many in the stack needing to be dried, it meant many trips up and down the stairs. Willum tended to race down them to make up time. If he completed his duties early, he could have free time for his own projects.

With all the drying pulp in the frames, the air was quite warm and humid in the attic. Since the temperatures had been so hot, the papers would be firmer in a three-day span and could then be released from their flat-screened beds. He’d have to go back to the garret to
