The Land of Ather: Day One in the Quest for the Golden Book story :
Thunderstruck by an enigmatic bookstore owner, John Kardinairo finds himself magically transported to the strange land of Ather. Challenged to find the mysterious Golden Book in seven days, he reluctantly begins an adventure with the help of Lord Mathetes, who once almost completed the same quest. Accompanied by Burech, a fairy-like person who knows all too well the evil that lies in wait, John struggles to survive while defying the fearsome Zanachs to save a woman's life. Will he fall victim to the evil Lord Aquzar's clutches or rise victoriously to achieve his quest?
Quest for the Golden Book story:
Caught in the fury of a sudden storm, John Kardinairo seeks shelter in a bookstore. Thrust into a strange land, his mundane life is forever altered as he embarks on an epic adventure. Trapped in the perilous battle between good and evil, he'll face vile creatures, a fire breathing dragon and the wrath of the evil Lord Aquzar. Drawn into a search for love, truth, and God, he desperately seeks the mysterious Golden Book. Focused on getting home, will he succumb to the forces of evil or unlock the riddles, retrieve the book and escape the Land of Ather?
"John," Lord Mathetes shook his head, "do you believe that if Michael had just answered your question with a simple word that you would have walked out of that bookstore satisfied with a deep life-changing knowledge of the truth--knowledge that you were loved and cared about?"
"Well..." John hesitated as the question caught him off guard. I didn't even consider the impact or lack of impact a simple answer would have had. I assumed it would be enough, but would it really? I've heard before that God cares about me. Matthew preaches about it all the time, and it doesn't change me. Could Michael have said anything--anything at all--that would have made the slightest bit of difference? If I am honest, no.
"To see, to know that one is loved and cared about cannot be expressed in simple words. Oh sure, people try and some get a glimpse or a hint of truth, love, and care, but to truly know, one must hunt it and find it by experiencing it. The love that you seek to know about is bigger than you or any one of us or all of us put together. To know that kind of love, one must seek it on a grander scale--a quest-style scale--and that could never simply be put into words." Lord Mathetes paused for a moment. "That experience you had a moment ago, you remember how it felt?"
