Reeling from a personal tragedy but determined to stop the demon Astaroth, twelve-year-old Max McDaniel sets out from Rowan, where magic and nature flourish so long as the people do not oppose the demon, and travels through the preindustrial nightmare Astaroth has created using the Book of Origins.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
It was not the warm sun or the bleating lambs that woke Max McDaniels. [Excerpt] It was not the warm sun or the bleating lambs that woke Max McDaniels. Rather, it was the soft patter of little feet—sly, terribly eager feet—that converged upon him as he lay amid the ripening corn. Max kept still while the first of his visitors hopped onto his chest. He did not stir at the second or third. But once the twelfth clambered up with an exasperated
peep, Max cracked an eye and smiled.

Twelve goslings stood upon him. Downy heads bobbed; inscrutable eyes glistened like wet pebbles. With a sudden, triumphant
honk, the boldest stepped forward and tapped its hard little beak on Max's breastbone. The others followed suit, and soon Max writhed and chuckled beneath the Lilliputian assault.

"Ouch!" he exclaimed, shooing at them halfheartedly. "I'm awake!"

Back Cover:

Inside Front Flap:
With the Book of Origins firmly in his possession, the villainous Astaroth now has the power to reshape history at will. Plucking pivotal discoveries from mankind's past, he has reduced the world to a preindustrial nightmare. But while most humans toil as slaves within four demonic kingdoms, Astaroth allows those at Rowan to thrive in peaceful isolation. Theirs is a land where magic and nature flourish . . . so long as none dare oppose the new order.

That proves too steep a price for Max McDaniels. Unsure of his place at Rowan and reeling from tragedy, Max sets out to explore the shifting landscape of a world that has been changed beyond recognition. In the course of his travels, he will be forced to become many things: Prisoner. Gladiator. Assassin. But can he become the hero that mankind so desperately needs?

In the third book of The Tapestry, author-illustrator Henry H. Neff takes the series in an exciting new direction, creating a fascinating dystopia in which myth, history, and monsters collide.
