The Rock of Ivanore

The annual Great Quest is
about to be announced in Quendel, a task that will determine the future of
Marcus and the other boys from the village who are coming of age. The wizard Zyll
commands them to find the Rock of Ivanore, but he doesn't tell them what the
Rock is exactly or where it can be found. Marcus must reach deep within himself
to develop new powers of magic and find the strength to survive the wild lands
and fierce enemies he encounters as he searches for the illusive Rock. If he
succeeds, he will live a life of honor; if he fails, he will live a life of
menial labor in shame. With more twists and turns than a labyrinth, and a story
in which nothing is as it seems, this tale of deception and discovery keeps
readers in suspense until the end.

Middle readers will
find that The Rock of Ivanore fits nicely among the traditional
fantasies they so enjoy. They will also appreciate its fresh and inventive take
on the genre.
