*note: The quiz closed on April 15th 2017, and our three winners were:
1st Prize - Anna Garcia-Centner
2nd Prize - Rainne Atkins
3rd Prize - Naching Kassa
However, please feel free to take the quiz for fun, because there are some great books and authors featured inside.
You are one of the brave few who answered the call of the mayor. You arrive just in time for a meeting to brief everyone on the severity of the situation, and the importance of prompt action.

"Buried deep in the bowels of the mountain, the beast is stirring, and only you have proved brave enough to answer my call for help. There are many tunnels that lead to the beast's lair, but only the correct choices will lead you to the weapons that can send the creature back into a torpor, for I fear it can never be truly defeated".

He shifts nervously, looking over the assembled crowd of would-be heroes, not knowing their faces or the deeds that have brought them here. Dare he rest his town's safety to this rag-tag group? Will they band together to complete the task ahead, or will some be foolish enough to try braving the beast alone? Time will tell...

Death awaits the unwary, so don't be afraid to scout ahead, so that you may select the path most likely to lead you to the dragon's horde.

Meanwhile, the town prepares to evacuate, should the beast awake.
