Quest


Sylvalla escapes Avondale castle and the life of a princess, in search of the adventure she’s always wanted.

Once found, adventure bites back.

Fortunately, she is not alone. Unfortunately, her new-found companions are less than heroic. Jonathan would rather make money. Dirk would rather live a long and happy life. And at 150, old Capro would rather stop gallivanting, and harangue unsuspecting wizardry students about his glory days over a nice cup of tea.

Quest has everything—heroes, monsters, chases, escapes and a complete lack of true love.

Prophecy

Are you ready for adventure?
Princess Sylvalla is more than ready. She's faced dragons and proven herself a hero - but her greatest trials are about to begin. Phetero, the king she accidentally kidnapped, is determined to have vengeance - and the threat of marriage to Prince Francis looms. Francis may be sweet, have proven he can draw swords from stones, and be the only prince in all the Seven Kingdoms who will have her, but Sylvalla is not a willing bride.
Terrifying as it is, the threat of marriage becomes the least of Sylvalla's problems as King Phetero's grudge turns from war into something more sinister. The prophecies are dire, but what help can they be against the ancient horror King Phetero plans to unleash?

If you're a fan of Terry Pratchett's Colour of Magic, William Goldman's The Princess Bride, or Diana Wynne Jones' The Tough Guide to Fantasyland, you'll love this new adventure by Sir Julius Vogel Award winning author, A.J. Ponder.

Omens - Coming Soon! 

They call her Witch Queen
They say she will destroy the Seven Kingdoms
They say she will destroy magic

Sylvalla would rather fight dragons than fuss over politics. As the unexpected queen of two kingdoms, her newfound power is making the neighbouring kings nervous. One by one, the kings fall for Sir Arrant’s offers of power and the beguiling butterfly jewels he offers in exchange for their alliance.
Determined to save her kingdom, Sylvalla will try anything, including diplomacy. Meanwhile, back in Bairnsley University, the wizard Jonathan and his father discover the evil Dothie has freed the Nameless Gods—gods that are determined to destroy the one person that stands in their way.
Can Sylvalla save Avondale? Can she save her people, her brother, or even herself, from the demons who would possess them all?
