Publishers Description "Nothing special" is the best way to describe Owen Reeder--at least that's what he's been told all his life. When a stranger visits his father's bookstore, Owen's ordinary life spirals out of control and right into a world he didn't even know existed. Owen believes the only gift he possesses is his ability to devour books, but he is about to be forced into a battle that will affect two worlds: his and the unknown world of the Lowlands. Don't miss the exciting conclusion to the Wormling series (Book 5, "The Author's Blood").

In THE MINIONS OF TIME, Jerry B. Jenkins and Chris Fabry continue the exciting saga of Owen Reeder, once the lonely son of a used bookseller, who discovers that the son of the king for whom his quest has taken him through many dangers is, in actuality, himself. As he tries to comprehend the repercussions of this newfound knowledge and suppress his inner fears about such a prophecy and its responsibilities, Owen finds that others share his skepticism. Not only must he overcome his own apprehensions, he needs to convince his friends and foes that, despite his humble background, he is of royal descent.
It is in this emotionally charged setting that Owen begins to work out his destiny, as he and the king and queen of the west are flying inside a cage over the islands of Mirantha. Suddenly a daring rescue plot takes root in Owen's mind, and he signals former friends far below, but they don't recognize him. Instead, Erol and his clan start firing off arrows to bring down the beast that is bearing Owen and the other hostages. What looks like certain death Owen transforms into a miracle rescue as he listens to his former instructor Mordecai's training and saves the group from the deadly Kerrol. But in doing so, Owen is swallowed alive. Once again he relies on lessons learned in the Lowlands and reappears alive, and the real arduous journey begins.
Owen must find his mother, sister and bride, along with searching for his faithful friends, Watcher and Humphrey, who are still in hiding at the Castle. Though Watcher has Mucker and The Book of the King, Owen knows that the Dragon himself now has possession of the sword and the missing chapter.
From one quickly moving scene to the next, Owen is challenged on every front to lead with courage, defend his honor and work to bring loyalty amongst the Lowlanders. And the Dragon's deceitful minions, which include the deadly flying buzzing beasts that bring on old age if stung, are just one foe that Owen, Watcher and those faithful to the true King must battle. As if fighting in the Lowlands isn't enough trial and trouble, Owen finds himself in the Highlands near the book's conclusion, where he reunites with Mr. Page, friend Connie and schoolmate Clara. These reunions bring hope and fresh revelations for Owen to ponder.
Readers will appreciate the fast-paced action, as well as the characters' clear passion for achieving their goals and their drive to overcome evil in pursuit of good, as they lean on The Book of the King as the backdrop for every choice they make.
