The Candlestone, the second installment in the Dragons in Our Midst series, is a contemporary fantasy novel made for preteens and young adults. Blending fantasy and real life adventure, this story delivers action and inspiration through the journey of two young teens, Billy Bannister and Bonnie Silver.
Billy and Bonnie have several questions surrounding some unsolved mysteries. What was the strange book that the dragon slayers used to sommon a dragon? Where is the magnificent sword that seemed to disintegrate the evil Devin? What happened to the Candlestone, that peculiar gem, always absorbing light and with it the powers of dragons or dragon children within its sphere of influence?
The Candlestone not only absorbs light, it captures and holds encoded light, and that includes transluminated humans, people who have been transformed into light energy by Excalibur, King Arthur's great sword. When Bonnie enters the stone herself, she finds out that many disembodied souls have fallen prey to the gem's powers, but no one has ever escaped.
The two teens face their greatest fears as they learn to use their strengths, both innate and newly found, as they battle powerful enemies, ancient fiends from times long past, and the horrors of the blackest of prisons, captivity with the walls of unearthly darkness, the crystalline tomb of the Candlestone.
