The Only Road

Monica Ponder (Author)


At fifteen, the boy had it all. He was a son of the Shaougaun, the ruler of the exotic kingdom called the Islands and a Busshidoe, a fighting priest dedicated to the Great God of War. Then the cataclysmic event occurred that crippled his body and exiled him from both his homeland and the Busshidoe. He arrived on the Mainland barely alive, nameless, and alone. He had all but given up hope when he met Jubal, the Caravan Master, and his assistant Seth. With their help he finds a new name and a new life; one that satisfies his needs but cannot fill the empty space that the loss of his God's favor left in his heart. Michal has been a mule driver for ten years when he meets the elfin Bard Sheer'An and her family. They help him become a Busshidoe again. When he learns that his new friends are his clan brothers in the Brotherhood of the Winged One, the bond he has formed with them deepens. Michal joins the elves in their battle to stop the Ogre King Rapine from destroying the city of Longlearning and enslaving everyone on Cel'mystry. He learns lessons about friendship, freedom, tolerance, and trust that will bring balance to his life and peace to his soul. The Only Road is a page turning adventure filled with action, humor and characters that will capture you heart with their engaging personalities and indomitable courage. The third book in the Cel'mystry Diaries trilogy, The Only Road brings the Ogre King's saga to an exciting, conclusion.
