Short, if the ancient maps were correct, I’d face my sworn enemy. Soon, I’d discover whether the sword of Calandra was a magical weapon capable of defeating an army, or a worthless piece of iron I’d been tricked into buying. Not much longer, I told myself, trying to control the excitement that buzzed through my nerves. Soon, revenge would be mine. Soon, the head of Maraku would dangle from my belt, and his heart would nourish the wolves who followed my trail.
 
But first, I had to make it through the rest of my third-period geography class.

About the Author:

David Lubar is the author of many popular novels for young readers, including Hidden Talents. He has also published many short stories in young adult anthologies. He lives in Pennsylvania.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-Mercer Dickensen's passion is a fantasy role-playing game called Wizards of the Warrior World. He and his friends play during free periods, after school, and on weekends. When he is asked to help organize the annual school fund-raiser to benefit a local homeless shelter, he suggests a gaming convention in the gym, with observation posts and all kinds of associated sale and swap tables featuring books and other paraphernalia. His idea is enthusiastically adopted by most of his classmates and teachers, as well as by Pastor Chuck, who runs the shelter. However, a dissenting article in the school paper by a student who links the game with Satanism and devil worship brings out a group of Bible-toting fundamentalists who halt the convention and game playing at school. After Pastor Chuck introduces Mercer to some of the residents of the shelter, these strange people start calling him Magus and beg that he help them return to their own world. It takes some time for Mercer to realize that they are real wizards, but eventually real magic and its related danger overshadow the game controversy. Short, often funny, and easy to read, the story combines wizardry and the real world of eighth grade in a way that is entirely believable and thought-provoking. Both sides of the issues are presented briefly but fairly, from different interpretations of the Bible to the pros and cons of wizardry, both fantasy and real. Help comes from an unexpected source, providing a surprise ending and more food for thought.
