Sword in the Darkness is a West Coast misadventure. Three teens find themselves thrust into a mythological power struggle spanning countries and cultures. Through no mere coincidence, all three are drawn to Brewer's Yawn, a recently and bizarrely formed cave in the Deschutes Forest of Central Oregon. There they meet Archibald and Shanna, owners and operators of "The Ore-gone-ian" cafe, who guide them along the way.
They discover a sword hidden in the cave that is powerful enough to shape reality. But other forces want the magical artifact, too. The travelers will have to realize their power to stop the malevolent King Karrabad and escape his lair, with the help of some Klamath Native legends. Along the way, they see that they may have had the power to shape their worlds before they ever stumbled into Brewer's Yawn.
Fans of The Vicious Deep, The Lightning Thief, Brooklyn Brujas, Godless, and The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian will enjoy.
