"For fans of epic fantasy"
Lysandra the Seer, her companion Cloud Dancer the Wolf and
Renan the Priest have stopped Baron Giraldus and his
sorcerer Aurya in their effort to have the Baron named as
the High King. Perhaps more critical they have found the
heir to the throne of Aghamore, Selia. However, proof of
her ascendancy remains limited to the prophecy of the
Thirteenth Scroll of Tambryn naming the Font of Wisdom.
Since she does not know how to use her powers being
inexperienced in magic and politics, many especially the
barons do not agree to the naive lass sitting on the throne
left unoccupied since King Anri died without a child.
Still, if Selia persuades the Archbishop of her right as
the next monarch, she will fulfill her destiny. However,
devious Bishop-ordinary Elon Gallivan assisted by his
lackeys Giraldus and Aurya control the Archbishop through
forbidden evil forces. At the same time, the barons and an
invading army say otherwise.
Fans of epic fantasy battles between good and evil will
want to read THE TRUEST POWER, a delightful sequel to the
wonderful THE THIRTEENTH SCROLL. Though the book stands
alone, as with many series in this genre, it is better to
peruse the first novel before devouring this tale as the
prequel sets the stage for book two. Still the story line
is filled with adventure, much of the magical in nature.
The key good guys seem authentic even those yielding non-
human powers while the malevolence is as nasty as they
get. If the first two books are any indicators Rebecca
Neason will beguile are enslaved audience with her next
