THE EYES OF THE DRAGON

by Stephen King


There is a far-away land where dragons still live, a land where magic still works, a land where hope and courage still hold true. In this land there is a kingom called Delain. And in this kingdom, there lives a magician, a dark man known as Flagg. And so trouble must come to Delain. The king is poisoned and a prince wrongly imprisoned....just as Flagg had planned. Yet someone knows the truth, for he has seen through the Eyes of the Dragon.
