The War of Words

(The Kingdom Wars, Book #3)

Battles against darkness, a quest for truth, and a search for the book that no one can read are all part of the fantasy adventure in The War of Words. As an evil sorcerer wages war with mysterious shadows and seeks to gain control by confusing the residents as to what s real and what isn’t, the fate of the kingdom rests in the hands of Kelsey and Nicholas.

As the youngest officer in the king s army, Kelsey fights the evil sorcerer s shadows on the battlefield as she explores the kingdom searching for the key to winning the war. Nicholas, a young sorcerer in training who is mastering his craft, discovers how the right words can change the course of the future.

Explore an enchanted maze, uncover the power of words, and learn about friendship in this whimsical tale.

The War of Words is the third and final volume in The Kingdom Wars series by Amy Neftzger. The first volume in this Young Adult fantasy series was The Orphanage of Miracles, and the Second was The Orchard of Hope. While the books are written as part of  larger story, each one of the volumes deals with different life lessons and works as a stand alone read.

The Orchard of Hope

(The Kingdom Wars, Book #2)

“Hope is never gone, but it can be eaten alive.”

A quest to save hope.

A kingdom under a spell.

A wizard in training.

A gargoyle with a sweet tooth.

The sequel to The Orphanage of Miracles is filled with engaging characters, magic, adventure, and unusual circumstance. It’s a story that will both entertain and inspire the reader.

Kelsey, a strong-willed and high spirited young girl, embarks upon another adventurous quest – this time to save hope, which is being stolen from the orchard. While the kingdom is still under the spell of the evil sorcerer who distorts reality in order to gain control, the king begins training someone who he believes can ultimately defeat the sorcerer: a young boy named Nicholas. Revisit some of your favorite characters, or meet them for the first time in this volume.

The Orchard of Hope is a different kind of fairy tale. Written in the spirit of authors like C.S. Lewis or Roald Dahl, it’s a story that’s designed to entertain while it also teaches and inspires children. The message of the book is that we all have unique talents and come from different perspectives, but hope is never gone when we all discover who we are meant to be and learn to work together. There is no one answer to all of life’s problems, but learning how to graciously allow others to to shine in their defining moments is a source of hope.

The Orphanage of Miracles

(The Kingdom Wars, Book #1)

Perhaps everyone could use a miracle,
but very few will find the one they truly need.

Amid a war torn land, hidden deep within an enchanted forest, hides an orphanage where miracles abound. It’s a magical place built by a resolute king who is determined to defeat an evil sorcerer waging bitter war against his people. Victory just might take a miracle, and so the orphanage may very well hide the key to winning the war.

A young girl named Kelsey also desperately needs a miracle. She embarks on a quest to find the mysterious and hidden orphanage. Along the way she’s joined by several traveling companions, including an over-sized snow leopard and a boy who cannot speak. In a land enchanted, it’s difficult to know the difference between what’s real and what isn’t … and what a true friend looks like. Join Kelsey and her companions as they embark on an extraordinary adventure and a quest unlike any other. A reading group guide is available here.
