The first book in the Isle of the Phoenix novels.
The Phoenix Quest follows the adventures of Roy as he explores a fascinating world, a world that is brand new each and every year.
The Isle of the Phoenix undergoes an inexplicable change each year when the Phoenix is reborn. The climate is different, the mountains move, new rivers appear, snow-covered hills can become desert, and deep valleys are rebirthed as swamps or treacherous crags. Trapped on the island by a mysterious fog that drives mad anyone foolish enough to enter it, the inhabitants of the Isle of the Phoenix are faced with new adventures each and every year of their lives as they cope with an ever-changing landscape that brings out the best and the worst in them.
Seventeen-year-old Roy, finding himself shunned by the entire city for his depraved and grotesque pranks, agrees to clear his name by going on a Quest to the very heart of this strange island. There, he must confront an ancient and vast power and prove himself worthy of the Gift he must obtain. Forced to travel with two companions he dislikes, Roy discovers that things are not what they seem and that the truth was not what he had been led to believe.
He must overcome the perils and dangers that lay along his path while trying to find common ground with his two companions—both of whom have come along for mysterious reasons of their own. Failure would mean that he would be an outcast, a vagabond—a nameless man. But more than the island itself has conspired to guarantee his failure. Dark forces have begun to gather, putting Roy at the center of a primeval battle that could cost him much more than just his life.
Plunged into the mystical and ever changing Isle of the Phoenix, The Phoenix Quest is a clean, fun-filled fantasy adventure that anyone of any age is sure to enjoy.
