Gryphon's Quest is the first story in the Tales of the Order. These are the stories of how magic beings hide in our world. They've remained hidden only because we don't believe in them.
The Sorceress of the Ancients protects them. But she knows the outside world comes closer, every year, to discovering the existence of Fairies, powerful Druids, Goblins and the like. It's her job to send loyal men and women into the world to procure supplies and obtain news. It isn't easy, but they haven't survived, for centuries, because they're careless.
"To you, I'm but a dream in the night. To those who do wrong by my people and harm others through deceit, I'm a nightmare."

"A stirring new read," says Jill Smith, Romantic Times. And 4 stars from Kathy Boswell for Romantic Times.
Five Stars - I can't begin to explain how very much I enjoyed this most different Paranormal Romance. I had a hard time putting it down in order to do such menial things as clean house, cook, go to work, etc.

...Ms. Sams has created strong, loving, selfless characters that simply worm their way into your heart and their love and poignant longing become your own in this powerfully written love story. Ms. Sams also manages to make a social commentary on the error of judging someone simply by virtue of their differences. I will be eagerly awaiting the next book in what I certainly hope is an ongoing series. - Leola for The Eternal Night Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Web Site
RECOMMENDED READ - Fallen Angel Reviews -
Rating: Five Angels
...Candace Sams has produced a wonderfully textured book with roots in the ancient world of the Druids and the Celts around Britain. Readers will definitely find themselves lost in this story and will find themselves falling for the main character while learning to despise the coldness of the Sorceress. This book has a good fluid pace that speeds up and slows down as required allowing the story to leap off the pages... - Heidi, for Fallen Angel Reviews
Ms. Sams has a talent for research into ancient Celtic history and her approach to the plot concept is a fascinating one. Gryphon's Quest is book one in the series about The Order of magical entities and proves to be well worth the reading. She weaves history, fantasy, suspense and romance together with an intriguing plot and deep characterization. - Annie, Joyfully Reviewed.com
