HEROES ARE CHOSEN TO SAVE BOTH REALMS
TRIED, TESTED, AND PROVED TO BE WORTHY
It used to be that his purpose was infatuation and curiosity. But the years of facing deadly opponents in the seemingly labyrinthine forests have passed and Julio finally catches up to the woman that ignited his fires.
Of course, it isn't as simple as he thought it was.
He knew that she is not of this world, that she is more mythical than real. But when Julio steps foot on the fabled realm of the Magaram, a race that for most humans only exists in folklore, he not only proves that he is right… he learns how unprepared he was for the truth.
It is not the ever after that he hoped.
Quest of the Heart, fourth of Myths of the Magaram Series, brings to light the real reason why Julio has been chosen. Every deadly adventure he has bested was not to prove his love for the Magaram woman, but a test for something else.
The human realm is about to get into the Second World War, and though there is no way to stop it, it can be cut short. He is not the only agent that had been tested, but he is the one closest to one pivotal area – the province where the Japanese Imperial Army will hold sway.
With nothing more than a vague promise to go on with, Julio embarks on a journey that puts him in harm’s way—again—and makes him question the motives behind being chosen.
For not only will he be fighting humans—he will also be fighting Magaram.

As their training progressed, Julio became more and more entranced by her. All throughout his stay in the realm, she had been nothing but an observer, and yet that did not diminish his fascination with her. But when they entered the plane, he had seen her do just about anything he could not imagine a woman doing—including schooling him.
By the fourth time they engaged in an impromptu sparring session, usually brought about by his doubts and stubbornness, Julio began to accept that he would never be as good as she was. He recalled the respect the other high guards had shown her.
Every day, his mind was filled thoughts of adventures with her, living with her, loving her. A week had passed before he had the nerve to ask.
“Why do you care?” he asked, tending to the young flames that were to be his source of warmth for the night.
“I do not follow,” she responded.
“I mean… why do you care if I survive or not? You said it yourself—there is going to be war and it’s going to be big.”
“I did say that, yes,” she replied.
“Look, say I fail and die. What difference does it make?”
“Nothing. Everything. No one truly knows,” she responded honestly.
“What… what is it to you?”
She was caught off guard. Her head turned in his direction like a whip. She stared at him, her long, elegant neck giving her chin more prominence. Julio’s heart stopped. He swallowed, though his mouth was suddenly dry.
You finish this, he told himself. Do not back out now.
