Quest of Fire: The Gathering Dark
Jason is an expert at running from his past. When it catches up, he finds himself hiding in a peculiar inn listening to a tale from centuries past.
The story is Anargen's, a teen who is pulled from all he loves to follow his oaths of loyalty to the fabled King of the Realms. Together with his mentor, Cinaed, he rides north on a special quest to mediate peace talks between ancient foes--the men of Ecthelowall and the dwarfs of Ordumair. Nothing goes as planned. Many on both sides of the dispute despise Anargen's Order. Worse, an arcane evil has returned to the North. This "Grey Scourge" seeks to ruin the peace talks and ensure a lost treasure held by the dwarfs is never found by those for whom it is meant.
As Anargen's story unfolds, Jason begins to wonder whether it is truly just a fable. He soon finds himself drawn into the conflict Anargen faced--a battle which has shaped and can destroy his world.
This book is definitely an epic fantasy tale in my opinion!I absolutely love the setting background of this story as I adore tales of knights,fighting for good and determined to overcome the darkness. Our main character Jason stops on his journey and is immediately taken by the tale being told of a legendary figure who went out with his friends and mentor to broker peace and conquer a great evil. You are so caught up in this story than the thought of this being a story within a story is faded into the recesses of your mind as you root for the characters as the encounter trails on their journey. The author effortlessly weaves spiritual wisdom into the the story and you will feel it pull at your heart as the story being told will affect Jason.
