Book Two is finally out and ready to purchase. The Perspicacious Quandary picks up with Matt Zampolos in his second year as an Agent of Light. In The Judas Sword, Matt is introduced to the spirit realm of Yahlandice and the work of agents who carry out the supportive and protective work of God. The new team of agents that he became a part of are now his family. He has had several encounters with Agents of Darkness, battled with Lucius, one of the Senior Dark Agents, and captured the Viper Sword that once belonged to Judas. Unfortunately, it was after that battle that Matt discovered the shocking news that his beloved father was also a Senior Dark Agent and right hand man to Bill, the Prince of Darkness. Since he didn’t finish off Lucius when he defeated him in battle, and since he refused his father’s plea to recruit him – which caused him to narrowly escape being sliced in two by his own father – he now has at least two powerful enemies who want his destruction to take place, and they both are being pushed by Bill himself.
In The Perspicacious Quandary, we are introduced to several new characters, not the least of which is an attractive young lady, who is much more than what she appears to be on the surface. Jane Marie Thatcher may look like a young adult, but she has several centuries of maturity that Matt fines amazing, if not hard to comprehend. Matt is also introduced to spirit realm competitions. First, there is a Camp Omega competition that leads to a Yahlandice wide and several millennium old competition called The Perspicacious Quandary. The PQ is a competition between All-Star teams from each camp, who must deal with a series of spirit world challenges that can only be solved with teamwork and courage. In the meantime, the work of agents must go on. Matt has a job to do, a loss to deal with, enemies who are waiting to ambush him, and some shocking surprises that have nothing to do with the PQ. The Judas Sword ended with Matt finding the surprise warning note that declared, “I’m coming!” Who wrote it? Which one wrote it? Do they find him in The Perspicacious Quandary?
I truly hope you enjoy it. You don’t necessarily have to read The Judas Sword to fully understand The Perspicacious Quandary, but it would surely help. Amazon has both the eBook and the paperback versions. If you happen to be by my office in the future, I have some copies too.
