AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) April 07, 2013
“Have you ever questioned the purpose of your existence? Felt insignificant in the great scheme of the universe,” asks S. Cameron Roach’s. In "The Scrolls of Udanadar" (published by Trafford Publishing), his new young adult fantasy novel, Bartholomew Fix finds out what can happen when the universe decides to answer those questions. Infected with the spirit of adventure by the bite of the Wandering Bug, he is compelled to seek out an agent of the universe who transports him to another planet in need of his off-world energy and awakens in the home of a great urKa'uun.
There is no magic only Ka'uun – the energy of creation – the urKa'uun are its users. Bartholomew becomes an apprentice and learns quickly how to use it and is soon sent out on an important mission with the urKa'uun's other ward, a skilled girl born of the wild-wise Duvar, for the Thousand-Year King is dying too soon. The two must bring back the Scrolls of Udanadar used in his creation as they may hold the answers; failure would bring all-out war between kingdoms of the Realm and with the Urilok, an ancient and fierce enemy.
A simple mission is never so simple, so the two find themselves traveling the realm on an exciting quest where they discover danger, a budding romance and humor in the most unlikely places. Once a naïve, self-absorbed boy, Bartholomew grows into a brave hero by learning what it is to sacrifice in order to achieve a higher goal.
“I wanted to write a fun and adventurous book that encourages all ages to look beyond their personal bubble of need and want, and see the daily sacrifices people make to make the world a better place,” explains Roach. “Also, to know that no matter how young or small, no one is insignificant, that anybody can make a difference if the desire is there.”
