Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Can YOU unravel the clues and solve the Sorcerer's grand quest?

The land of Gallantaria is reeling from the aftermath of a long and costly war. Tantalon, wizard of the court, rules the kingdom over an Inner Council of scheming knights, jealously vying for power. But Tantalon's years are drawing to a close.

In order to seek out the kingdom's sharpest minds, Tantalon has devised an epic adventure quest. One which will test the wits of its contestants to the full. From near and far, contenders come to Royal Lendle to take up the challenge.

YOU are a competitor in the ageing Sorcerer's grand quest. Can YOU steal the Brimstone Dragon's treasure hoard? Will YOU find a way to free Sir Dunstable from imprisonment in the Stinn dungeon? And how will YOU catch the Demon Fish? All the information you need is there, ingeniously hidden in both text and pictures, and each strand of the mystery unravels to reveal the next. But are YOU sharp enough to crack it? Can YOU complete the task you have been set? The Tasks of Tantalon await you. Do YOU dare take up the challenge?
