Jim and Angie are adjusting to their new life within this parallel dimension of 14th-century medieval England, or as well as any 20th-century persons might. Jim, the now Sir James, Baron of Malencontri et Riveroak is trying to be a good English Lord, however, fate conspires against him and must set him on an adventure to recover the Prince of England who is being held captive in France. Little does Jim know that he'll be going up against the interests of the "Dark Powers" who are already at work to thwart Jim's mission. This will culminate in Jim squaring off against the evil and powerful sorcerer Malvinne.
In June 2013, Seattle film director Jesse Stipek acquired the motion picture rights to produce a live action adaptation of The Flight of Dragons, loosely based on characters and locations within the novel.
