MIKE HAMEL'S MATTERHORN, THE BRAVE
"DRAGONS, DANGER, AND INSPIRATION"
Matterhorn the Brave is an exciting new juvenile fiction series about four young children who are recruited to keep an eye on the portals of earth that connect all realms of space and time.
After rescuing Jewel from a heretic named Etham, the Travelers chase him to China. They wind up in the lair of Yu, the dragon, and are forced into an uneasy partnership with the beast. They will protect Yu during the upcoming dragon hunt in exchange for her help in finding Etham.
Etham's trail leads to the royal court, where the heretics are already weaving their web around the thirteen-year-old boy destined to become Emperor of China. Zheng wants the dragon mound for his memorial; the heretics want it for another base from which to carry out their conquest of Earth.
Kyl and Elok arrive to help the Travelers, but one of them soon disappears and the other is killed. The same dire fate threatens Matterhorn and his friends. Only a daring deception and quirky court jester give them any chance of survival.
Dragon's Lair is book five in the Matterhorn the Brave series.

"Dragon's Lair" is the fifth in the Matterhorn the Brave series written by Make Hamel. Aaron, Nate, and Jewel join Matt in this exciting new adventure as they experience time travel, through the portals of earth, that connect all the realms of space and time.
They are on a mission to retrieve the lost Talis, the Traveler's Cube. Talis are tangible symbols of the Maker's power. The young foursome found themselves inside an emperor's tomb from the Qin dynasty. Here they were confronted by the Dragon, Yu. The search took on a new and daunting danger after meeting Yu. In exchange for her help in finding Ethan, who was now in possession of the Cube Matterhorn and his friends agreed to protect the Dragon's life. The team now faced an additional menace. Along with fighting wraiths and heretics they were now faced with taking on the most vindictive man in China.
Suspense filled drama, history, modern technology, and miraculous powers all play a part in the plot of Hamel's writing. In addition to these Hamel weaves into the story important truths regarding the Maker, free choice, evil, and the danger of pride.
