by Benjamin Mester
Genre: YA Epic Fantasy Romance
A kingdom in danger. A prophecy that will change everything. But will they understand it in time? The old world is gone, and barely even histories remain. But something from that time is returning. The closing lines of a farewell poem, written centuries ago by the last great king of the age to his slain wife, might be more than just a poem:
The world and all its light shall fade,
I'll stay with her beneath the shade
And wait until the world's remade...
Join us in this epic fantasy adventure as three friends plunge into the great mystery of their age, twelve centuries in the making. A mysterious fog blankets the forest just outside the sleepy town of Suriya. A dark plot unfolds as Durian and his friends discover ties between a strange wanderer and the warlike barbarian kingdom far to the north. Are the mysterious things happening in the forest a prelude to invasion? What happens next will propel Durian and his curious friends into the middle of the oldest riddle in the history of their kingdom, a dozen centuries old.

I love writing that inspires. Foundational to the human spirit is the love of a good story. A good story makes you yearn to live your best life, to fight for things worth fighting for, and be swept away in heroic events. I'm not one for shock and awe, but a story that builds slowly, using mystery, suspense and adventure to draw the reader along. I hope you'll check them out! Currently, these books are unrepresented.
