About this title

Synopsis:

2004 EPPIE Award Finalist for Best Young Adult Novel!!

Twelve-year-old Teman finds himself drawn into a world he never dreamed he’d be a part of—a world of magic and mystery: a world of heroic quests and demonic creatures, a world of dragons. Plucked from the streets to help the wizard Velachaz hide a secret past, Teman soon discovers that he shares the gift of Magic. As he practices to master his first spells, he meets a strange young knight-to-be who is off to slay a dragon. When the knight turns out to be Velachaz’s nephew Galen, the quest is on.

Teman and Vela journey north with the youth in hopes of saving Galen from himself. They encounter one adventure after another along the way, learning from each other as they go. But Teman has a secret of his own. He hopes to save the dragon from Galen’s sword before either one of them gets hurt. What they find when they reach the dragon’s lair is the biggest secret of all.

The story is peopled with interesting characters and supernatural beings, from the plucky servant Sally whose sling seldom misses to the eccentric artist Mad Elaine, the wood sprite Rowan, the wicked cat-woman in her ruined tower, and of course, the dragon.

In the end, only by working together can Teman and Velachaz hope to save the day.

About the Author:

Hi, I’m Rie Sheridan. I have been writing since I first picked up a crayon, but now you can actually read it. After more years than I care to admit, things are finally beginning to shape up!

I started writing as a very young child, encouraged by parents with a love of science fiction that they passed on to me. When I was about nine years old I started working on a fantasy about elves. I worked on it off and on for several years—my elves getting taller after I read Tolkien—before putting it aside for high school and college.

After I got out of school, with a BFA in Theater, I started writing again, and paid my major dues in the fan fiction arena back in the 1980s in the Doctor Who and Shadow Chasers fandoms. I still remember how proud I was of the first "real" story of my own that was over three pages.

After writing in other people’s worlds for a time, I decided that I would like to try resurrecting my elven fantasy, The Blood That Binds. Since I started seriously visiting with my elves, I never have wanted to go back to fan fiction...my own is too much fun!

And it’s been worth it.

The Right Hand of Velachaz is near and dear to my heart. It started as an assignment for a short story in my Institute of Children’s Literature course. I didn’t finish the course, but the story expanded itself into a novel. Hope you will enjoy it.

All in all, the road’s been rocky, but it’s smooth sailing from here!
