After his family went through multiple adventures, King Graham has finally settled into enjoying the peace that envelops Daventry. However, one day when he is strolling through the woods, something envelops his own castle and family and whirls it away. A dark wizard named Mordack did this deed for revenge, but Graham doesn't know what he could've done to him to incite such hatred. Luckily, an owl named Cedric saw the whole thing and offers to take Graham to Serenia where he can seek help out from the kind wizard Crispin. Together, Graham and Cedric must travel through burning deserts, icy mountains, and across deep oceans to Mordack's fearsome castle to save his family! Use your brains instead of brawn, and perhaps Graham will succeed. Written by
