"Compelling and exciting story filled with fairies and other mythical creatures."

Shayla, Sorceress of the Ancients, has summoned Gryphon O'Connor, Druid Warrior and Protector of a secret order of mystical beings. His mission is to go to New York and retrieve the Rune Stones of the Tuatha De! Danann. These stones are old and until recently were buried with the remains of an ancient Celtic family, who were sworn to protect them at all cost. It is said that the stones are very powerful. Anyone who deciphers the stones for honest intent would be able to move about in a form reflecting their true soul, but those seeking to use these stones for evil would take the form of something monstrous.

By the time Gryphon arrives in New York, the stones have been taken and translated, and an elderly museum guard has been brutally murdered. In order to find the stones Gryphon approaches Heather Green, an Acquisitions assistant at the Manhattan Museum of Antiquities, where he believes the stones to be. Her initial reaction to him and his story about the stolen rune stones is one of disbelief. But could the death of the guard and the stones be connected?

Will Gryphon and Heather be able to find the stones, and fight the growing attraction between them? Well, I won't tell. You'll just have to buy the book!

Candace Sams has written an excellent first novel. It is a compelling and exciting story filled with fairies and other mythical creatures. Gryphon's Quest is also a story of love, and acceptance. May have you asking yourself "just how much would you willingly give up and sacrifice for love." I have to admit that while reading this story my eyes got a little misty, and yes I had to bring out the tissues. My only complaint was that the story ended too soon! I am looking forward to the next book about "The Tales Of The Order".
