The Quill and the Quest
Book 2 of the Verdinia Chronicles
Oren Homefield knows what he’s doing. He has a good job, a handsome face, a long, magical horn, and a budding relationship with the unusual and otherworldly Sarah Linden.
Until King Ash goes and screws it all up by proposing to Sarah at the Spring Festival.
Now, Oren has to compete against a king for his lady’s affections, and the resulting insecurity affects his ability to use his most powerful gifts, leaving his friends in danger. Which is bad timing because the king sends him on a perilous quest to the kingdom of Cyanica to learn more about the other “gate girl” and deliver a message to King Meoden.
But there are surprises in store for Oren that will not only force him to confront his struggling abilities, but also make him question his entire identity.
