The Pearl of Immortality follows two characters with one being more prominent to the story than the other. These two children discover a magical lamp very early on in the book and when they do something with this lamp, they find themselves whisked away to a different planet that is wonderous but also a little frightening at the same time. Xerxes, who is the novels primary protagonist, becomes a dragon rider with the help of someone with experience. We follow Xerxes as we discover his history and his prophecy as he learns to harness his newfound skills. Our other main character Kaspar is a young boy who rescues a princess once arriving on this strange new planet and when he does so he is chosen to inherit the powers of a wise, legendary warrior. However, this novel is not this straightforward because evil is afoot and soon the two novels protagonist embark on a terrifying, but incredible quest to save the world from the evil and the darkness.
