Book 1 of the Dreadful Series

Fourteen-year-old James Dreadful is living a normal life in a small, Colorado town. But his past is anything but normal. Born in Nobrocoso—a mystical land of magic and myths—James was brought to earth at the age of three to escape sorcerous assassins after the death of his parents.


When powerful and evil goblin Wizizorkus arrives years later to steal a secret book that once belonged to his father, James learns of his father’s true identity: Jack Dreadful was a Dark Lord who waged a terrible war in Nobrocoso. 


Escaping Wizizorkus, James returns to Nobrocoso where he must confront the dark legacy left behind by his father. But as James learns his father’s secrets, he begins to fear he is also following in his footsteps.

Can James survive a dangerous mystical land haunted by his father’s deeds? Can he survive his father’s blood-stained secrets? Or will he become the man everyone hated, and meet the same abysmal end?
