Reviewed by Stephanie Dagg for Readers Favorite: "The King’s Challenge: A Quest for Eternal Life" by Lucas Zahn is a fantasy adventure for adults and young adults. Matthew has interesting dreams. He recounts those adventures about soldiers and orks to his fellow pupils at school. But now freshly graduated, he has a dream in which he is told he must meet the King’s Challenge... As with most fantasies it encompasses a journey that is both physical and spiritual. Matthew travels and develops throughout this novel. Good battles evil and we come across all the usual culprits in the form of elves, dwarves, orks, mages and dragons, not forgetting an oracle, but Zahn gives each race his own spin to keep his handling of this genre fresh and original. The plot is interesting and keeps the reader guessing. All in all, a very entertaining and thoughtfully written novel, with, one hopes, more to come in the series.
