Book Description

He then shared with her the strange visions he had seen in their travels: the evil visage that peered out from the Tribal Chief’s face and the eerie figure he saw at the edge of the woods at the home of Pascal and Gaelle.

Kyrene nodded her head eagerly as he related these visions.

“Very good, Marcus, very good indeed,” she said with the air of a tutor commending an exceptional pupil. “You are growing in discernment, and that is why you perceived them.”

“Were they the Astra?” he inquired as he lowered his voice.

“Yes, indeed!” Kyrene exclaimed. “Or rather, two of the minor ones.”

“Minor?” Marcus asked skeptically. “But they were hideous!”

“Oh yes, I am certain they were!” the girl answered him. “But it is only the minor Astra that are hideous. “It is the high ranking Astra who are more difficult to detect, for they disguise themselves as beings of great beauty. Yes, they seem beautiful, but make no mistake, Marcus; they are evil.”

Those last words were pronounced with such finality that for a moment Marcus found himself bereft of words. Yet, he had something niggling at him, that would not leave him in peace…

“I have one more question,” he finally ventured. “Why could not Dag make the Tribal Chief see reason? Why do they persist in believing a lie?”

“They believe because the lie is of long tradition, and it is entrenched in their understanding. What you saw in the Tribal Chief’s face was a lower ranking Astra, but over that one is a higher, more powerful general, if you will, who exercises control of that territory in Trekur Lende and gives orders to those of a lower rank. It is a hierarchy, Marcus, just as it is in a standing army.”

This statement made sense to Marcus, who was raised in a military family, and whose thoughts proceeded along such lines. And yet…

“Why was Dag unable to break through that lie?” Marcus persisted.

“Dag could not prevail because he had not yet been tested,” Kyrene explained. “Do you remember what Xenon taught us? ‘You will never defeat the kingdom of darkness unless you conquer the chambers of your own heart.’ ”


"You will never defeat the kingdom of darkness unless you conquer the chambers of your own heart."

Thus had their mentor Xenon warned Marcus Maximus and his friends in Quest For the Kingdom Part I The Legend of the Great Pearl. Now as they continue their journey at the mercy of the will of the River Zoe, they are about to discover just how true those words will prove to be. For each learns they must conquer the darkest chambers of their hearts before they can confront the evil Astra who haunt their steps, and are determined to hinder their quest.

For Marcus the quest itself threatens his hopes of happiness as he discovers that he has more than one rival for the fair Tullia, and each day away from her is precious time lost from his pursuit of her hand. Nor is he alone, for each of his companions will be confronted with choices that will change their lives forever. And at each step they must answer the question: can they even trust each other?

In Part II of the Quest For the Kingdom series, go where few venture to dare: facing the frightening enemy lurking within, and the fearsome evil that threatens to destroy one's destiny. As Marcus soon learns, only the fabulous Sword Logos, which must never be used in violence, stands between him and complete destruction.

Quest For the Kingdom by L. M. Roth is a 7 book series divided into 2 sections.

Books 1 through 3 comprise the Empress Aurora Trilogy and the tale of the young Marcus Maximus. Books 4 through 7 consist of the Chronicles of Logos and recount the fate of the fabulous Sword, and reveals how the decisions of the next generation impact the Kingdom for years to come.

About the Author

L. M. Roth is a "pilgrim on the path of life" and a seeker of truth. This quest first began when the author read Little Women and was struck by the sense of destiny shared by each of the March sisters as they "pilgrimed" their way through the trials and thrills that only life can offer. The quest deepened through the exposure to classic mythology and legends, which birthed a sense of hidden identity, that we are not who we have always thought we were, but are each of us heroes and heroines destined for something great and noble. Who are we? Where are we going? What tasks are we meant to accomplish during our time on Earth? We are all on a journey together as we seek the answers. You may join L. M. Roth in that quest anytime you read one of the author's books. L. M. Roth is the pen name of a Christian author from the American Midwest. You can keep up to date with L. M.
