The Quest for Óg Book Description


Sadira awakens to her caravan being clutched by flames, with her in it. She manages to escape, only to be stared down by a giant. In Sadira’s mind, her day is going to end horribly before it even starts. To her surprise, the giant puts out the fire. However, his heroism doesn’t come without a price. As a favor for putting out the fire, he asks her to help him revert back to the human he once was.

This task doesn’t faze her until he utters one word…Kappa. A word she never thought she’d have to hear again.

In a world that blends Celtic and Japanese myth and culture, Sadira and Óg face their pasts while trying to reclaim the lives they once had. When evil fueled Kappa are pulling the strings, who knows what troubles they will uncover.


The Quest for Óg Excerpt

quest for og book cover“Indeed. Your color has come back, but your voice needs some work. I’ll bring you some tea.” Haygarth adds.

He gets up and leaves the room. Brennan smiles and holds Sadira’s hand.

“You gave us quite a fright dear.”

“I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have run out like that. I don’t know where my mind was.”

“That’s neither here nor there now. What’s important is you getting enough rest before you continue on your journey.”

Haygarth returns with the tea and I help Sadira sit upright. I sit next to her so that she has something to lean back into. She takes the tea and starts drinking immediately.

“Mmmm, tasty.”

She downs the whole cup and leans back onto my shoulder.

“Thanks everyone. I think I’m going to go back to sleep now, if that’s alright.”

“Your voice is a little raspy. Also, I think you should drink some broth first.” Haygarth suggests.

“Good idea, I’ll make the broth.” Brennan says proudly.

Brennan gets up happily and walks out the room. Haygarth and Sadira look at the doorway with wide eyes.

“What’s the matter? Was it something she said?” I ask.

“Brennan is not a very good cook. At all. She’s more of a baker.” Sadira explains.

“You should’ve seen her attempt at making broth the last time.” Haygarth shudders.

“She made some for my parents. They both got sick, then Haygarth had to nurse them for days. Ever since, she hasn’t been allowed in the kitchen to cook.”

“Thank goodness I don’t get sick often. Otherwise I’d never get better.” Haygarth says.

As if on cue, the sounds of pots and pans falling echoes through the house. Haygarth gets up and sprints out the door. I laugh a little.

“I wonder if she ever tried to get romantic and cook him a meal.” I laugh.

“She probably did try in the beginning. Obviously, he learned his lesson.” She responds.

She sits there and teases me about how she’s never seen me cook. I move my head to flip my hair when I remember that I don’t have hair.

I haven’t had any in a long time. I can’t wait to be my old self again. I feel like I’m living another life. Different name, different body, but I still feel like me…I think.

I start staring at Sadira. When she sees the real me, if she sees the real me, will she still view me the same way? Will she ever see me as myself or will she still see me as Óg?
