Happenstance Found by P. W. Catanese
Happenstance awakens at the beginning of the book in an underground city with a volcano about to erupt over him and no memories of his life before that moment. He is rescued by Lord Umber who also receives a note about Happenstance warning him to be sure to develop Hap's talents. On the way back to Umber's home they notice that a ship is following them and Hap is sure it is Occo, the evil man mentioned in the note. Although they try to ditch Occo's boat he still finds Happenstance on land and for the first time they can see that Occo has legs that bend backwards and several eyes all over his face. They manage to fight Occo off temporarily but Happenstance knows that he has to find his lost memories and the secret of who he really is before he brings more danger to everyone who has helped him.
