Book Synopsis

Sylvalla escapes Avondale castle and the life of a princess, in search of the adventure she’s always wanted – but 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; monsters, chases, escapes and a complete lack of true love. Discover Quest by A.J. Ponder and rediscover fantasy.

My Review

What a fun listen.  Benjamin Fife was a great narrator and sounded like an old wise wizard reading the tale.  The characters were vivid. I really enjoyed the humor in the book, aimed at the older reader and the lesson, for a younger reader.  It reminded me a little of the princess bride, does that date me, a fairy tale and I could almost see this as a stage musical.  I was thoroughly entertained. 

I could see this as a listen/read along for a parent and a child or either enjoying it themselves.  I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.

Author Bio

USA Today Bestselling author, A.J. Ponder has a head full of monsters, and recklessly spills them onto the written page. Beware dragons, dreadbeasts, taniwha, and small children—all are equally dangerous, and capable of treading on your heart—or tearing it, still beating, from your chest.
