For the A-to-Z Challenge 2016, I am blogging info on my current work-in-progress, a YA fantasy/adventure mini-series tentatively titled “The Other World”.
Okay, so we’re on day seventeen of my little blurbs about The Other World, so I’m pretty confident that most of you have likely figured this out by now, but this story involves a quest.
I can’t reveal too much without revealing important plot points, but for totally logical reasons (I promise) our protagonist will quest across this “other” world in order to gather what she needs to defeat the evil Iryen and release the kingdom from the endless nightmare that he has rained down upon it.
She’ll not be alone, of course. She’ll be joined primarily by Jacob, the last of the Ravenson line, and Kaima, the daughter of a Maelekanai elder, but she’ll make other allies along the way as well.
Her quest will take her through forests and across oceans, up and over mountains, through deserts and snowy wastelands. She must seek out and enlist the help of all of the six races in order to gain the strength required to take down the dark creature who has stolen the throne from its rightful owners. It will be a long, difficult journey filled with danger and struggle, and to be perfectly honest our protagonist has no idea whether she’ll even be able to survive it, but she knows in her heart that she has to at least try, and isn’t that where every quest truly begins?
I hope you’re enjoying the A-to-Z Challenge and my little snippets of ‘The Other World’! If you’re interested in what else I’ve written, please be sure to check out ‘Nowhere to Hide‘, available on Amazon in both hard copy and e-book versions!

I would agree – a quest seems daunting, you don’t know if you’ll accomplish it, but there is such a strong drive to attempt it, that you have no choice but to try.

If it weren’t daunting it wouldn’t be a quest. ^_^ Thanks for dropping in!
I’ll be first in line to buy it! Can I pre-order it yet? 😀
lol Nope! XD I’ll definitely shoot you off a message when I need a beta-read though. ^_!
Indeed. Every genre has some sort of quest. It may not be as grand as saving the world, but every character has something they’re trying to achieve.
