About the Author
Eusebius opens amid a magnificent setting of castles and palaces placed among a land of rolling hills. It is the ultimate city of advancement. The reader is introduced to a fellowship of some twenty-eight friends who are all easily distinguishable as the book goes on. It was they who made the city what it was thanks to the knowledge they acquired by traveling in time. They are young and have the whole world before them. The knowledge of time has given them everything they desired from long life to luxuries.
In this seemingly perfect world of close friendship and adventure problems begin to arise. Death and betrayal plagues their union in a mystery that will have you baffled. By the end of part 1 the close fellowship they shared has been completely broken. It shows how quickly things can change and friendships can be lost. Entering part 2 of the story we see all the greatness they achieved vanish and their entire world fall. It is then that we discover not only something worth dying for but more importantly a reason to live. We see men who had everything but still found life empty. We see men lose everything but find something worth more than anything they had before.
"There is reason for people to live by certain principles," says author Patrick Strain. "Life is rich with meaning. By leading a principled life we do not find ourselves limited; rather we are infused with a passion for life and discover things we could have otherwise never known. We as humans have a high nature and an intellect above any other creature. That is what makes each of us unique. Our higher nature places us above the brutes. That is why we must have the proper understanding of self-respect, because we are all, regardless of our greatness, lords of this earth."
It may be a fantasy, but it is one of the most uplifting and meaningful stories in recent memory. It very well may bring about a renewed interest in stories of principles and chivalry. It will definitely bring about an understanding to many who are troubled and give them peace. As the back of the book mentions, this is not only a journey for the characters in the tale. It is a journey for the reader.
