The news spread across the Kingdom of Versa, from one Kanop to the next. By mid sun they had all heard of the unspeakable. The facts changed from Kanop to Kanop, thus the reality stayed the same; the Kingdom’s Magic Jewels had been stolen. None were sure of whom or what had taken them or the intentions of the thieves. Would the Jewels be used against them or lost forever, would the Kingdom fall under a dark spell of poverty and sickness? By late sun the Royal City of Versa was in turmoil, the King had made no attempt to inform the Kanops of what was being done to find the missing Jewels. Many Kanops had gathered outside the palace walls awaiting word from the King.
And so begins M. E. Williams’ fourth novel, Seven Magic Jewels of Versa, a spellbinding epic that describes the intricacies of courage and the powers that can either strengthen a community or destroy it. In this novel he describes two separate paths; one is against tyranny, the other marches toward it. Like no other storyteller of this genre or ilk Williams has a talent for showing readers the broad side of humanity within the unearthly landscapes of other worlds.
