Everville 3: The Rise of Mallory by Roy Huff is the third book in the Everville series. It picks up right where book 2 left off with Owen and his friends on Earth preparing for Christmas. The cast in Everville is trying to return to their normal lives as they recover from adventures of the last book as well.
Mallory is now raising a surprisingly powerful dragon that he intends to use for the forces of Them in their fight against The Keepers. Owen and his Everville allies know that they must prepare for a coming attack even when they are unsure of how or when it will come. Everyone must do what they can to prepare for the upcoming fight.
And it isn’t only the good who are preparing, Mallory and his minions understand that their attack would come most effectively from a new, unexpected direction. If The Keepers are almost the most powerful force in the universe, where can Mallory find someone he hopes is even stronger?
Such a gathering of strength might be avoided, but this can only be done with a great personal sacrifice. Just how much will Owen be willing to endure so that he might have a chance to save everything? For how very long? He might find that his original goal becomes abstract when it’s pitted against new, unforeseen happiness.
