Book Description

A powerful vampire wizard named Taza is brought through the void by Adois, a vengeful goddess who lends him her staff so that he can take over the planet, Muira and turn it from good to evil. He convinces a race of dark elves, to take on the cloak of vampirism, but his careful planning is jeopardized when Prince Tarquin is born to fulfill a prophecy. Tarquin, however, cannot succeed alone, and when Morganna, an Illanni noble woman, threatens Taza’s plans, she prevents her cousin from destroying the prophecy.

Tarquin is sent to the dwarvan militia to learn combat and survival skills by joining an elite group of soldiers known as the Borderers. He is championed by the wizard, Celedant, who begins his search for the Staff of Adaman – the only object capable of defeating the Staff of Adois.

Book one of the trilogy, The Quest for the Staff of Adaman, begins with the search for the first of two pieces of the ancient staff as Taza’s assassins hunt the prince to thwart the prophecy. Tarquin, however, is not the only target. Celedant must confront not only assassins, but powerful and dangerous creatures that Taza brings through the void to destroy him and the growing resistance among the dwarves, wood elves, and high elves.

But first, Celedant must take the final test to become a Master Wizard. If he passes, he will be able to battle the Staff of Adois and the monster that wields it. If he fails, not only will the world be overrun by evil, but Celedant will be lost in the Dragon’s Tear for all eternity.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Witches, Warlocks, and Wizards, Oh My!
-A modern twist on classic fantasy -

            During a time where vampires and werewolves seem to dominate science fiction media, the mysterious world of dragons, elves, and wizards seems to have magically disappeared.
            Or have they?
            Enter War of the Staffs: Quest for the Staff of Adaman, by H.P. Stephenson and Kathryn Tedrick. Stephenson and Tedrick give a classic sci-fi fantasy saga a modern twist in the first book in the War of the Staffs trilogy. While Quest for the Staff of Adaman includes a myriad of mythical creatures, it's not your average vampire book that has flooded the market in recent years.
"War of the Staffs is a fresh new series for all those who love dragons, wizards, elves, dwarves, and mayhem," says Tedrick.
Set on the planet Muira, the balance of good and evil is in jeopardy when a powerful vampire wizard named Taza, with the help of a powerful staff from Adois, (a goddess with a grudge) recruits a race of dark elves to aid in his quest to take over Muira. However, his plans may be foiled by Prince Tarquin, who is prophesized to battle the greatest evil Muira has ever seen. Tarquin's quest is guided by many, including Celedant, a powerful wizard who has his own hurdles to overcome.
