Thirteen-year-old Zed Clarke was raised in a mountain village far from the conflict between Robots and Dragons. But his peaceful existence is shattered when he accompanies his uncle on a "Gathering" to collect precious Protium crystals needed to power the town's generators. Zed will discover an odd connection to this mysterious energy source-- one that may prove to be as dangerous as it is empowering and will find himself thrust on an adventure across a dangerous world. From the deep-sea laboratories of the Robot scientist DX Trencher to the desert catacombs of the Dragon priestess Isaaa P'tah, Zed will seek ways to control his emerging abilities. Are these powers a gift or a terrible curse? One thing is certain, they will place Zed at the center of a struggle for control of the entire world. The Nomad's Curse is the first installment in the young adult adventure trilogy, Dragons Vs Robots: Protium Master.
