Fantasy / Adventure

Blurb

The kings are gone. The war has ended. Tyrannical and feared, the Idols abolished national cultures. They control the world. Their ultimate goal of immortality is within their reach but a young boy continued to elude them. A boy with answers, and powers they feared. Guided by an unseen mentor, and protected by a loyal guardian, Jay searched to answer questions of his own. Unaware of the extent of what he could do, Jay discovers that he is endowed with extraordinary abilities. Rough and untrained, Jay seeks the skills of an ancient teacher, a man of legend, a man whose knowledge spans generations. Beyond the journals left by his father, and the poems hidden by his mother, Jay finds comfort in his adopted family’s home. Hope propels him forward, the hope that he will find his parents alive. No one is safe around him as the Idols are always watching. Will Jay have the strength to endure, or will the weight of his destiny crush him? Jay is a tale of a young boy who wants a simple life, and the journey he must accomplish to realize his wish.

Prologue

“We need to go.”

“Do you have everything?”

Jay sat confused on the edge of his bed. The sheets had been taken and the room left barren. All of his personal effects were at an unknown location. He could hear Nuvi and Barclay’s discussion through the closed door.

“Yes,” Barclay answered. “I have everything.”

“Then leave,” Nuvi stressed. “They can’t find him.”

Barclay embraced his wife. “I will return.”

Nuvi nodded to hold back her emotions. “Go, so you can return.”

Barclay hurried to Jay’s room. “I’ll explain later,” he said, letting go of the handle. “Right now, we need to leave.”

“Why?”

“I need more time to explain,” Barclay stressed. “If we don’t go, you will never know.”

Jay looked down at his hands.

“Stand,” Barclay said, kneeling beside him. “Take my hand and close your eyes.”

“Where are we going?”

“Let me show you.”

Scared but obedient, Jay took Barclay’s hand and closed his eyes. He immediately felt a pull in every direction. His stomach turned inside out and he squeezed Barclay’s hand for support.

“Open your eyes.”

Jay brought his hand up and squinted to block the sun. He blinked heavily and turned his head.

“This is the Isle of Taq,” Barclay explained. “We will be safe here.”
