As the only son to King Kendrick, Owen despises the idea of being king one day. Magician may
be the only career he’d like less. He has dreaded the days leading up to his fifteenth birthday,
when his father will certainly declare Owen heir to the throne. But at the birthday celebration, his
father falls ill. The only person in the kingdom that may be able to save him is a magician–the
very same magician Owen holds responsible for the death of his mother.
Owen and his companions will have to travel the continent of Wittatun in search of the cure for
King Kendrick. On the journey, they will battle strange beasts and harsh climates, befriend
extraordinary magicians, and meet a dragon before returning to Innes Castle–where much has
happened in the days since he departed.
About the Author Eric grew up in central Illinois. He now lives in northwest Iowa with his wife and two sons. He began publishing in 2008 when he started writing a quarterly column for a local newspaper. His first short story, “Ghost Bed and Ghoul Breakfast,” a spooky children’s tale about a haunted bed and breakfast, came out later the same year. He has published more than 30 nonfiction articles/ columns, four short stories, and a poem. Three of his short stories have won honorable mention in the CrossTIME Annual Science Fiction contest. This is his first novel.
Excerpt: Owen halted in his tracks. Did the magician really just suggest they stroll into the perils and scorching heat of the accursed land? He shook his head in disgust. “Did you say the Land of Fire?” Cedric stopped and looked back at Owen, a casual expression gracing his face. “Yes.” “So we have to cross Death Desert?” “Indeed, we do.” Owen could feel rage bubbling at his temples. His vision lost focus, and his voice sounded more like the grunt of a wild boar than a human. “You know I can’t get beyond the outer rim! If the heat doesn’t kill me, the animals will!” “You can, and will, get through Death Desert,” Cedric’s mustache twitched as he attempted to smile through his mass of facial hair. “But we’ll have to use magic.” Links Website/Blog authorericprice.com Twitter: @AuthorEricPrice Facebook: Author Eric Price and Unveiling the Wizards’ Shroud
