In the kingdom of Aradithia, words are whispered about a Goblin King well over two thousand years old. He's imprisoned in a citadel, and his powers are enormous. But most people believe he's a myth. The stories are taken more seriously, however, when their unsuspecting kingdom falls prey to the Goblin King's scheming representatives. Now, it is up to Aiden Tulley, a reluctant sorcerer's apprentice, to find out how to fight the powers of darkness. But it won't be easy. Aiden must make difficult decisions, including whether to rescue his friends or seek the forest of Golden Oak, where he can convene with the spirit of his old master and train to become a Mahgi warrior. Complicating matters is the fact that everyone seems to have a hidden agenda. There is something unusual about the beautiful Mary Delaney. The Aradithian prince is not all he appears to be. And Aiden's best friend is hiding a dark secret. If the kingdom has any chance of surviving, Aiden must discover powers he never thought he possessed, while being forced to find the only weapon that can defeat his terrifying nemesis in Aradithia: Rise of the Goblin King.
