Amos Daragon is a series of fantasy fiction books written by the French Canadian writer Bryan Perro. The central story arc focuses on Amos Daragon, a bright and adventurous twelve-year-old, and his quest to become the 'Mask Wearer'. Amos sets out on a journey to find four masks that harness the forces of nature – earth, wind, fire and water – and the sixteen stones of power (4 stones per mask) that give the masks their magic. With the help of his humanimal friend, Beorf, Amos must fulfill his destiny and defeat the forces of evil that threaten his world. The Amos Daragon series has been published in numerous countries worldwide. The first English translation of The Mask Wearer was published in June 2009 by Scribo, a division of Book House, an imprint of the Salariya Book Company. The second book, Amos Daragon: The Key of Braha, was published by Scribo in September 2009. The third book, The Twilight of the Gods, was published in January 2010. The fourth book, The Curse of Freyja, was published in Spring 2010. The series has been translated into more than fifteen other languages.[1]

Amos Daragon in other media[edit]

Amos Daragon has been adapted as a children's animated television series, Les aventures d'Amos Daragon, produced by Montreal-based IceWorks Animation and broadcast on Radio-Canada from September 2016.[2] In Quebec, fans of the books can visit Le Sanctuaire des Braves (The Sanctuary of the Braves) in the municipality of Saint-Mathieu-du-Parc, near Shawinigan. Le Sanctuaire des Braves is a weekend camp for children between 10-15 based in the Amos Daragon world, where children can portray their own character in the continuing saga of the Amos Daragon universe.
