Lucy & Dee: The Caves of Wonder (Book 2 in series)
In the sequel to The Silk Road, Lucy and Dee are trapped in the magical world of Sericea with the young emperor Yidi and a sorceress queen who wants all three of them captured.
Hiding their true identities to protect both themselves and those who want to help them, the trio must make the hazardous trip across Sericea to the Caves of Wonder to find a fabled warrior who could help them. But along the way, developing talents and rumours of revolution test their resolve. Lucy’s magical abilities grow, Dee’s interest in alchemy poses new opportunities and Yidi’s budding awareness of his empire has him confronting uncomfortable truths as he learns to live among those he’s meant to rule.
New dangers lurk around every corner, and if Lucy, Dee, and Yidi can’t face them together, their lives and the very fate of Sericea will be in peril.
Lucy & Dee: The Silk Road (Book 1 in series)
"Oh, cheer up," said Lucy. "It's simple really, we find the Emperor, help him stay alive until he’s ready to take the throne, get the key for changing lead into gold, and then it’s off to find your parents. What could go wrong?"
Lucy wants an adventure. Dee needs money to help him find his missing parents. When a flaming bird leads them to a hidden road, and the lord of stone offers them a quest, the opportunity for both arises. In a land full of magic, dragons, and demons, all they have to do is befriend a young emperor—which would be a lot easier if he wasn't a royal pain and an angry queen didn't want to destroy him. With the entitled ruler in tow, Lucy and Dee must find a way home with a mysterious feather and a dragon-whisperer (who looks suspiciously like a hedgehog) their only defence against capture . . . or worse.
