Champion’s Quest: The Die of Destiny by Frank L. Cole
Lucas Silver’s life is about to change. He thinks it’s because he’s made plans to escape from his foster home and make his way to New York, but then he and his friend Miles and two girls they’re acquainted with―Jasmine and Vanessa―find Hob and Bogie’s Curiosity Shoppe and agree to play a game of Champion’s Quest.
When the four kids walk out the front door of the Curiosity Shoppe, they immediately discover they’re no longer in West Virginia, but transported into the game and a wild fantasy world of dangerous goblins, brutish ogres, and a powerful witch.
They must work together as a team, overcome their real-world weaknesses, and believe in themselves and each other if they are to outwit, outplay, and survive their foes in this ultimate quest to defeat a treacherous monster.
The Die of Destiny is the first installment in an exciting new series. While trying to runaway from his foster home, Lucas and 3 friends get pulled into a game- a la Jumanji. They have to find and defeat an evil bad guy in a strange fantasy world with it’s own rules and dangers. Young fans of Role Playing Games will really enjoy this one. I’m not a gamer, just a fantasy fan – and it was still a lot of fun. Lucas and his companions are likable and have a great dynamic. And it has a sweet, poignant message that will appeal to everyone. Full of adventure, magic, and monsters – this fast-paced story is hard to put down.
