Pendragon is a story about a boy named Bobby Pendragon. But he's not a normal boy, because he is a Traveler, who can travel in between the territories of Halla. His abilities are revealed to him by his Uncle Press, who is the Traveler from Bobby's territory; Second Earth. That's right, there's more than one Earth. But Bobby and his uncle arent the only Travelers though, there's Saint Dane, who wants nothing more than to bend each territory to his will to create the ultimate Halla. Each territory in Halla has a "turning point," which can either be tipped in Bobby's favor, which would stabilize it, or to Saint Dane's favor, which would send it into turmoil, and furthering Saint Dane's goal. Bobby's job as Traveler first begins on a territory called Denduron, a medieval kingdom that has discoverd the use of Tak, a natural, deadly explosive. Will he be able to save the other nine territories as well? Or will Saint Dane take apart Halla one territory at a time?
