The Gift-Knight’s Quest

Welcome to Kensrik,  a world vividly imagined by Dylan Madeley, in which his debut fantasy novel The Gift-Knights Quest is set. His  book  follows the  youngest descendants of two families that  have traditionally  been  enemies: the Kenderleys, who now rule the worlds largest empire, and the Wancyeks,  who have been reduced to common status.

Chandra never asked to rule Kensrik, but fate took a strange course. Known as a usurper and sorceress by most and traumatised by all that  has transpired,  she is forced  to make use of the  few loyal allies she has in order  to hold together her restless empire. In an attempt to identify and defeat the conspirators who inadvertently landed her in power, Chandra  risks putting  the lives of many in mortal danger, as well as her own.

Derek is an aimless wanderer   the  youngest  in a lineage that  has long fallen from  nobility.  He  findhimself summoned  by tradition to serve a family historically considerehis bitter  enemy. As he journeys down the same path a fateful ancestor once travelled, he struggles with personal demons and begins to reconsider his loyalty to the mission.

Duke Lenn found  one  true  cause in love and it  cost  him  everything.  His  legacy shaped  the  present in which Chandra  and Derek find themselves. Now their choice will shape the future of Kensrik...

After using Kickstarter to raise the funds to publish his novel, Dylan shares his inspiration  for the book. “I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but even through my undergraduate years I put off writing a novel. I feel its now time to take the leap!” explains Dylan.

Reading this is like having my own portable  time travel machine...
I absolutely love every moment  I spend submerged in this world.” Pelicanfreak book review blog
