I've been trying to track down this trilogy of books I've read when I was a teenager. The fact I've only read them translated to Lithuanian language, doesn't help.
I don't remember much, but the few details:
The first one's title had something to do with a necklace, that was given to the main character — a young girl — by her mom. It was a round thing that looked like an eye. She had a brother I think, I'm not sure though.
There were dragons that some king or emperor had as his pets, but they were more like giant komodo dragons that stank of rotten flesh and they could not fly or anything. The girl's friend or companion is a ginger man called Nick, that is led to believe is alchemist Nicholas Flamel.
The second book was about the girl meeting her father who had this magical flute, and she didn't like him because she grew up without him, but he was teaching her the magic of the flute. I'm pretty sure he dies at the end of the book.
I don't remember anything about the third book, but I'm pretty sure there was one.
Does anyone know what this is?
