This is what I've got so far for Chamaeleon: The Dragon Key:
Thirteen year old Kel's latest spying mission should have been easy — ensure that young Sun Chi becomes Emperor of Lasheen and escort Princess Heller to the ceremony. But Sun needs the missing Dragon Key before he can be crowned and someone is trying to kill him. To make matters worse, Heller is kidnapped.
Convinced that the boy's sinister uncle, Lord Wei Fei, is plotting to take over the throne, Kel sets out to find the Dragon Key before him but is soon caught up in a dangerous web. In order to solve the mystery at the heart of the palace, Kel must find the two halves of the Dragon Key and the door that it opens, but with the coronation only a week away, will he have time to rescue the princess and ensure Sun Chi is crowned?
I particularly don't like, "To make matters worse..." and I don't think it conveys the feeling of urgency/race againt time that I think it needs. So, over to you.
