The King’s Challenge – Relaunch


Today is April Fools, normally a time for tomfoolery and whatnot, but here on this corner of the internet, we are super serious and hopeful about the release of the new edition of The King’s Challenge. The 2nd edition of The King’s Challenge contains new art, updated formatting, and an overall cleaner package that is a better representation of the story I wrote and the experience I wish to present to readers.

The once prosperous nation of Redren fought back against the darkness. A darkness that entered their world through an impossible event and promised to deliver every living soul to its master, Death. The king and magici of an age long past found a way to defeat the darkness and wrote The Knowledge, a historical account that should never be forgotten. Within The Knowledge, they created The King’s Challenge a once in a generation event to determine the king’s worthiness and readiness should the darkness return. As family and friends fall victim to a faceless shadow who has haunted Khymn throughout her life, she must decide on the ultimate choice: Save the world and turn her back on everything her people hold dear or be the one who allowed permanent darkness to fall over the entire world of Aura

The King’s Challenge is the 2nd novel by Stew Stunes. A female fronted, young adult, dark fantasy, adventure, set in the same narrative universe as The Writers of the Universe, this story takes place in the world of Aura 400 years after the events in the first book, but it is not a direct sequel.
