William Lynes, MD pens new fantasy novel

TEMECULA, Calif. (PRWEB) February 04, 2013

In his new book, “Pirates, Scoundrels, and Kings” (published by iUniverse) William Lynes, MD, tells a story of adventure and fantasy set in an illusionary medieval world. It is a place where good prevails over evil, and a young boy finds the meaning of faith in God.

Even for a Monday, young Christopher’s day is full of frustration. There was the school bus ride through the mud, followed by a huge argument with his two brothers. He would do anything to escape, just for a little while – a wish that he soon finds granted. A chance encounter with a philosophical cloud sends him to the medieval kingdom of Alucemet, a world which is in shambles. The King is lost, the Queen’s power is dwindling and the citizens blame their traitorous sons.

Christopher now realizes he is in the presence of one of the sons, Sir Alexander. Even so, he finds in Alexander not a traitor, but a quiet, kind leader intent on restoring the kingdom to its past glory. Soon, Alexander is ambushed, and Christopher is told Alexander’s evil brother, Nicholas the Blue, is responsible. Luckily, with the Queen’s help, Christopher is able to escape, and he finds himself at the very door of the notorious other brother.

In this electrifying new story of high adventure, Christopher must lean on his faith in God to strengthen his new friends, save their kingdom, and find his way home!
