As Edwyrd Eska approaches his two-hundredth year as Guardian of the Core, he must find an Apprentice to train under him. His title and role compels him to safeguard and govern his universe, Gladonus, as each Guardian before him has done and those after him shall continue to do until relieved of such duties by will of the Ancients. Prince Hydro Paen, Eirek Mourse, and Zain Berrese—amongst other contestants—receive invitations to compete in a quest of Trials intended to determine who becomes Eska’s Apprentice. An old adage goes: “the toughest trials test you truest” – and these events challenge their fortitude through tenuous partnerships, intellectual rivalries, and battles of weapons’ mastery. Along the way, each contestant must attempt to overcome personal demons that haunt them. In this tale of ideal dreams and lucid aspirations, these competitors find theirs threatened by deceit, betrayal, sabotage—and even flesh—as all become vital to success…

Here's a note for other readers looking to purchase the kindle version: Look into using Calibre Library to easily open such files and organize them on your pc (and probably mac & linux).  ... Also I wish I could afford to buy the paperback right now. haha

very true author very true thank you for this message. i feel the same way when it comes to authors and their books, it is like a way to show the world what you think of, believe or learn. books are an excellent way to show the your knowledge of the outside world and people
