Synopsis of The Emerald Cavern

A force for good. . . or evil? Destiny and tragedy placed an awesome power in the hands of young Mathew Lewin. But is he its master -- or its pawn?

Needing shelter from his enemies, Mathew Lewin has come to a kingdom neighboring the one he saved by harnessing the might of the ring. The haven he has chosen, however, is anything but safe. Treachery and mysterious murder plague this land and its giant king, threatening a devastating civil war and giving rise to dangerous suspicions aimed at the boy who seeks sanctuary. But Mat fears the destructive resources at his fingertips -- he must learn their secrets or be destroyed by them -- and his quest has led him here. Now, to find the answers he covets, he must confront another who wields the power . . . and venture into an enchanted place of darkness where the truest and most terrible of evils dwells.

Reviews of The Emerald Cavern


The Emerald Cavern is, first and foremost, good old-fashioned fun. -- John C. Snider, Scifi Dimensions

I enjoyed The Emerald Cavern more than The Fifth Ring. -- Hilary Williamson, BookLoons

Take it only as the grand and tragic adventure visible on the surface and enjoy a ripping good read. Or, look beneath the layers as the characters attempt to and see the parallels in our own world. -- Lisa DuMond , MEViews

Mr. Graham is a superb storyteller with a colorful imagination. -- Harriet Klausner, Harriet Klausner's review archive

With a killer cliffhanger that makes you long for more, this second Book of The Fifth Ring exemplifies the way this type of fantasy should be done...and that it can be interesting and strong. -- Cindy Lynn Speer, Fantastica Daily
