The Lost Knight
Candy Atkins, author
Candy Atkins The Lost Knight YA Fantasy Fiction – Hero's Journey \t Synopsis: As far as she knew, Agatha Stone was an average, boring girl who wasn't particularly smart, interesting, or pretty. She lived an average, boring life with her Auntie and Uncle in their tiny Brooklyn apartment that was packed with garbage and cats. She went to school alone, she painted in her room alone, and when Auntie remembered to buy food, she ate alone. Unless it was her birthday, then she got to stare at a glass marble and get in trouble when the marble didn’t do whatever crazy Auntie thought it was supposed to. Then on her thirteenth birthday, Auntie and Uncle betrayed her to a strange man who spoke to them in an alien language, and attacked her. She was only able to escape thanks to Jonah, a kindly but terrifying monster who looked just like the Grim Reaper. Jonah kept her safe, but he told her all kinds of distressing things about another world. Ashra, a place where monsters and myths were real. He told her stories about her parents, who had once been Knights on the other side of the divide between worlds. Worst of all, he told her that she, Agatha Stone, the most pathetic girl in all of Brooklyn, was supposed to save both Ashra and Earth from the ravages of war. She treks across Ashra to fulfill a quest she doesn’t understand in order to prevent the loss of millions of lives. Jonah led her across the sea on a voyage of self-discovery, deep into Gwa Twouroch, a cave where your every thought appears before you, and into the castle of the elfin lands, where nothing was what it seemed and enemies hid among friends. So many strange and bizarre creatures told her they wanted to help her so she could help them in return—Jonah, whose glaring red eyes disappeared into shadow in a twinkle; Dathid, the Prince of the faeries, whose haughtiness was matched only by his beauty and his skill in combat; Lenox, her very own pegasus, huge, fiercely loyal, and terrifying; Master Sarpedon, a mysterious snake-creature who could either devour her, or teach her the ways of the Knight. Everyone was counting on her. It’s too bad they were putting all their hopes on the shyest, most unremarkable girl in the world...
