Read full description of the books The Earthstone:Quest of the Uncrowned King
Caolin, the royal traitor who once nearly destroyed Westria, has risen again on the Red Mountain. Infinitely more powerful than before, now he is the Wolfmaster, the Lord who wields the fear at the heart of the Universe. And the weapons to stop him – the Jewels of Power – are lost to the world, while Westria, leaderless for a generation, drifts toward doom.
Westria has one hope. Julian – the lost son of King Jehan and Queen Faris – is alive.
But Julian is untrained, untested, unblooded, and unknown, his claim to the Crown disputed. To prove his birthright, Julian, Silverhair the Wanderer, and the Regent's children, Frederic and Rana, must journey to gain the support of Westria's unearthly guardians – the Lord of the Trees, the Lady of Earth, the Guardian of Men, the Gnome-King... and Julian must find, then wield, the awesome first Jewel of Power, the Earthstone...
Before the Blood Lord's sorcery and assassins locate and destroy them all.
