The Prince's Quest - Second Draft.
Living as Crown Prince of Linaeus isn’t so bad. Elric can live with the whispers behind his back, and the obvious dislike the servants hold for him. But, without warning, his situation changes when King Rath decides to test his son’s loyalty, and see if he really can be a great king one day.
Elric is on a quest, a quest he would rather avoid. Someone in the small village of Redge is publishing false information about the king. It’s Elric’s job to find the perpetrator and bring him- and anyone involved- to justice.
The prince is plunged into a moral dilemma as he evades bandits intent on his capture, searches for truth, and meets a girl who could change his view on everything.
Life is filled with choices. The problem is, making the right one.
The Siren's Call - Second Draft.
Prince Bridger hates his name... and the plans his parents have for him. As the fifth son he has only one duty: to marry well. But his parent's choice for bride is a girl whose family line leads back to piracy and many mysterious deaths. Bridger retaliates by boycotting the marriage and borrowing one of his father's ships to search for the myth of a sleeping princess he heard long ago.
His pirate bride chases after him, for a woman spurned is a dangerous thing. As he avoids cutthroat, sea monsters, and other dangers, Bridger is left to wonder if the lure of a sleeping princess is worth every obstacle he faces.
When one sets out for adventure, a bit of peace and quiet is sometimes appreciated.
