ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Quest of Fire: Desperation Series: Quest of Fire #4 Author: Brett Armstrong Publisher: Expanse Books Release Date: September 13, 2022 Genre: Christian, Epic Fantasy
Guarding his nation’s last hope, a teen must escape enemy lands.
While Anargen, Caeserus, and Bertinand are held captive in Stormridge, the war to restore Ecthelowall’s Commonwealth has been waged for months. Their friend Terrillian is on its frontline and hopes are high.
For Barons Fenwrest and Sornfold the fight is too close to their children, whose union represents the only viable challenge to the Monarchists claim to Ecthelowall’s ancient throne. Enter Thomas Fenwrest, an orphan and page to Sir Hurstwell, who is captain of Baron Fenwrest’s guard. The pair must escort the teens to Castle Yerst expecting boredom to be their only danger. Everything quickly spirals out of control when the Monarchists somehow deliver a devastating blow to the Restoration army and Thomas and Sir Hurstwell face the increasingly difficult task of keeping their charges alive. Ancient sorcery and bitter grudges combine to ensnare them. As desperation sets in for the Restoration and Thomas, to where will they turn for hope?

A dozen yards ahead, a figure burst out of the tree line at a sprint. The next instant
Hurstwell was after him. Two seconds after, Thomas flanked him.
The man ran perpendicular to travelers. It took them nearly running him down for him to even notice their pursuit.
As soon as they had him flanked, he threw up his hands. “Please, I only want to warn my family! Please, sir. They’re just a little farther in Duncaster.”
“And that blood on you, that’s yours alone?” Hurstwell asked, sounding as though he doubted it very much.
Thomas looked the stranger over as the man dithered answering. Hurstwell’s question was fair. The man’s garments were streaked with a rich crimson. They looked like the undergarments of a soldier over a common woodsman.
“It’s not mine. Not most of it anyway,” the man grew quiet, holding out his shirt from his body to examine it. There was a change as he did. His thready calm broke and his eyes widened as tremors seized him. “You have to run! They’re coming!” he shouted and tried to sneak from between Thomas and Hurstwell.
