Only Theodore escaped when Chinese bandits burned his father’s mission.  With two friends, he makes his way to the high country of Tibet, and a mysterious gold-domed monastery where he is to be severely tested.  For the demons and magic are real – and Theodore is the key to the birth of the long-awaited, all powerful one called the Tulku.
