The Tides of Avarice: A Sagaria Legend by John Dahlgren
The Tides of Avarice is the first novel in a brand new and exciting fantasy series set in the mystical world of Sagaria. This book combines charm and humour in a delightful tale filled with a motley assortment of characters.
It is the story of Sylvester Lemmington, a lemming who loves books about magic, treasure and pirates, but he never thought he'd encounter them for real. When he mistakenly receives a treasure map that reveals the location of a long-lost treasure, he is drawn into an adventure that brings him face to face with the most cuthroat villian to sail the seas of Sagaria - Captain Terrigan Rustbane, a cunning fox who will stop at nothing to get his map back. Can Sylvester and his sweetheart Viola escape the clutches of the vilest pirate the world has known? Can he locate the treasure before the nefarious pirate captain? Can he find his long-lost father, rescue his hometown from its ruthless mayor and discover true happiness? This is a tale about love, courage, greed and finding out who you are as a person when danger is all around and X marks the spot.
"Constantly inventive, full of edge-of-the-seat excitement and hilariously funny." John Grant, Hugo Award-winning author
