Of Quills And Kings
Book One of the Quillology
by Joel Reeves
Jonathan Quintain is a naïve young man reluctant to assume leadership after the Baron abandons the castle with his mistress and most of the staff. When a spell cast by the inept advisor and castle mage, Gamitof Pym, goes awry, the castle is turned upside down—freeing an underestimated hedgehog prisoner and displacing the magical Orb.
Pox, the youngest of a line of inept and arrogant deities, sets out on a mission to recover it. However, Pox’s seemingly easy task becomes botched when Walpole, the so-called Sacred Hedgehog of Yurle, steals the Orb and begins his mission for world domination.
Following a battle for the now-ruined castle, Jonathan learns that the demonic hedgehog has captured the realm’s child-king. With nothing left at home to satisfy a young man’s appetite for adventure, he and his friends set off into the desolate land of Yurle to save their king and hopefully recover the stolen Orb.
