The Hunt for R. L. Nox
The hunt is on! The Ebrinites are depending on Ed and Mel Davis and their friend Jax to stop R. L. Nox as he is destroying their world bit by bit. Ed and Mel must dig deep to find the strength to stop R. L. while they also fight the spell that hinders their ability to communicate. Will they be able to stop R. L. before his greed completely destroys Ebrin? Or will the challenge ahead be more than they can handle? The fate of Ebrin rests in their hands.
