EXCERPT:


Silver glyphs and runes cover the polished cypress staff. At the top, there’s a three-headed dragon. One set of eyes peeks at me, and when it catches my gaze, it snaps its eyes closed again. You don’t see me.


“Caves?” I ask the man with the wizard staff. “All the caves you’ll find up here are likely to belong to the Kodiaks, and they don’t like visitors much. Except maybe as a snack.”


You don’t see me.


“We are hoping to study the local … fauna,” he says


You don’t see me.


That’s it! If it’s going to be obnoxious about it. Open your eyes and sing a silly ditty, I order it.


All three sets of eyes pop open, and the middle dragon head sings, “In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the dragon sleeps tonight …”


The other two heads join in, singing, “wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh …”
