The Quest Of The Thirteen

The Quest Of The Thirteen CoverBelievers Strive to Restore the Soul of a Kingdom

A battle-weary kingdom in chaos. A people losing their faith. A dying king with no heir, the rules of succession tied to an ancient legend.

Salvation may lie in a chronicle discovered amongst the dusty tomes in the library of the scribes. The passage describes a medallion of enormous power that holds the key not only to saving the kingdom but to identifying the future king.

Thirteen loyal subjects are selected and trained to make the arduous quest to retrieve the medallion. Together they work against nearly impossible odds— rugged terrain, mythical beasts, death-defying adventures and, worst of all, betrayal in their ranks.

In the tradition of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, The Quest of the Thirteen brings to mind the adventure and excitement of Jason and the Argonauts, The Odyssey, and the Arthurian legend of the Holy Grail.

Ultimately The Quest of the Thirteen is about an extraordinary effort to resurrect a kingdom and its people in a world where evil and unearthly challenges lurk around every corner, and where the real heroes are the ones who fearlessly confront evil and meet those challenges head-on.
