On a quest for vengeance against a criminal known as the Viper, Prince Rasteem becomes suspicious when his army easily conquers Dodrazeb. Princess Laneffri is desperate to expel the Persian invaders from her kingdom and will stop at nothing to protect its secrets--especially the Origin Key, a powerful, ancient device. Is Dodrazeb hiding the Viper or something even more dangerous? When Rasteem learns what the Origin Key can do, he must find a way to make the princess an ally to save both their kingdoms from annihilation.
The Treasures of Dodrazeb chronicles the sword-and-science adventures of Persian warrior-prince Rasteem when he discovers a secretive kingdom inhabited by descendants of an ancient, scholarly society hiding powerful technology.
Peacefully hidden in a remote valley for millennia, Dodrazebbians are the guardians of advanced science that the rest of the third-century world mistakes for evil magic. Understanding that their strange and wondrous technology has potentially sinister applications, Rasteem chooses to protect Dodrazeb’s secrets in order to protect the Persian Empire from villains who would use it to conquer and destroy.
