Prepare yourself for the most immersive experience in reading you have had in a long time. People toss around the term epic but this is an EPIC. There have been tales of quests…for rings or other things…but this is the quest book of quest books.
The world-building and descriptions are spot-on. You can feel the sand in your face or the wind in your hair as you read. The cast of characters is beautifully created and each add an additional flavor to this book. Very well written and a smooth read this is a fine work.– Amazon Review
An epic fantasy story, where the deep bond of friendship, a web of deception, and a twist of betrayal weave a spellbinding adventure like no other.
In the shadows of a kingdom scarred by tragedy, a riveting tale of destiny, rivalry, and an enigmatic power unfolds. Enter the resplendent realm of Eartheenia, where the throne stands vacant, awaiting a worthy heir. The Aries council, governing the nation, decided to host a competition, the King’s Candidates event, to fill the empty throne. Fourteen-year-old male and female knights, wizards, witches, and ranger cadets from the three prestigious schools across the land may enter.
Two young orphans, Thomas and Will, find their paths entwined by a shared yearning for purpose and self-discovery. Though separated by miles, their personal experiences have forged them into resilient souls who now find themselves thrust into the heart of the competition, bound together as both rivals and allies.
Growing up in a village notorious for barbarian raids and violence, Thomas became very skilled in combat, particularly as a swordsman and archer. His master, who has cared for him since the loss of his parents, insisted he attends the Ministry school and enter the contest. While Thomas’s exceptional talents render him the best-suited contestant, he has no desire to become the new King. But he could never fathom disobeying his master.
Will, on the other hand, was raised in an orphanage located in the Aries capital city, Ariestonia. Fearing being singled out as the only female in the first-year Ranger class in Blackwolff Hall, she disguises herself as a male cadet, ready to make her mark on the world. After experiencing the disparity of their people firsthand, Will intends to transform their kingdom and believes that only someone like her, who has lived the hardships of a lower-class citizen, could genuinely inspire change.
However, Thomas and Will’s fates intertwine when Thomas learns that the artifact crystal heart is more than just a myth. It’s said to be the weapon of one of the seven immortals, Aelrendel Hun, and wields unknowable power. It holds the potential to change their entire world, for better or worse.
Together, Thomas and Will search for the crystal to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands; however, they are not the only ones who have accepted the challenge.
Journey through realms teeming with enchantment, as alliances form, loyalties are tested, and the fate of the Eartheenians rests upon the shoulders of unlikely heroes. In this mesmerizing tale of epic proportions, immerse yourself in a world where danger lurks at every turn, and the battle for the throne is only the beginning. Will Thomas and Will unearth the truth behind the crystal before ‘darkness’ swallows their land? Or will the realms be condemned to eternal chaos, forever bound to the whims of those who covet ultimate power? The answers lie within the pages of this extraordinary saga.
