City of Ice
From the islands of Hawaii, Scirye and her loyal companions pursue the villainous Mr. Roland and evil dragon Badik all the way to the city of Nova Hafnia in the icy Arctic Circle. With the help of a trader, Prince Tarkhun, and his daughter Roxanna, the companions chase Roland and Badik into the vast and desolate Wastes. Scirye and her friends are determined to stop Mr. Roland from getting his hands on the second of the Five Lost Treasures of Emperor Yu, which will give him the power to alter the very fabric of the universe. But few who enter the Wastes ever return, and Scirye must call on the spirit of the North for help. As wild and unpredictable as the Arctic itself, will the spirit turn out to be friend or foe?
