Plot summary[edit]

Each volume of the Chronicles of Kylix is set on a different world in the magical solar system of the fictional star Kylix in the constellation of the Unicorn. The system consists of the five planets Zao, Olymbris, Thoorana, Zephrondus and Gulzund. The Quest of Kadji takes place on Gulzund.

Kadji, young grandson to the aging warrior Zarouk, has been tasked by his grandfather with dethroning Prince Yakthodah, imposter to the throne of the Dragon Emperor. Crossing the Kylix-sun scorched plains on Haral, his faithful black Feridoon pony, Kadji rides into the capital to vanquish his nemesis, knowing full well this will mean his own painful end.
