Written in the epic style of such classics as the Silmarillion and the Iliad, the Tale of Manaeth tells the story of a young princess reluctantly thrust into a position of leadership among her people and faced with a hostile and powerful foreign aggressor. Through much hardship and many savage battles she leads her people to triumph and becomes the foundress of a nation.
As the youngest girl in a family of six, Manaeth is an unlikely candidate for the throne of the Kingdom of Asylia. But when her entire family is murdered by agents of a cruel foreign king, she becomes the heir to the throne and the unexpected source of unity for her scattered and persecuted people. Though desiring peace she is forced to become a sovereign of war, and through fortitude and the shedding of much blood she labors to free her people from foreign oppression.

Here's what readers of Tale of Manaeth are saying: "The most striking element in Tale of Manaeth is the manner in which it is written. The tenor is epic and feels very organic. From start to finish, Mr. Campbell's tale of courage and triumph over persecution and betrayal (not to mention tremendous odds), is indeed inspiring. The players and the setting are truly unforgetable. This work will definitely satisfy those who have an appetite for adventure." Bill, age 30 "Readers of the Lord of the Rings or the Silmarillion will find Tale of Manaeth a favorite. With fierce enemies and epic battles, you will be entranced by this author’s illustrious style of writing." Daniel, age 13 “So many popular fantasy novels that have been published in recent years are not worth reading. Mr. Phillip Campbell has brought forth a work that brings to mind the ancient Greek myths and is seasoned with his own originality. The Tale of Manaeth has been an inspiration to me in some of my own... More > writing, and I find myself eagerly awaiting more chronicles that he has yet to publish.” -Christopher, age 15 "Tale of Manaeth is a classic that will be shelved in a place of honor with works of art such as The Silmarilion, The Song of Roland, and the Iliad. The characters are larger-than-life, heroes and villains that you can't help but admire, and the battles are such that you find yourself gripping he pages in rushing excitement, begging the author to make it all end alright, and that not to many heroes will fall in battle. The fights are as intense as any movie, and the pictures awakened in your head are as vivid as Narnia or The Lord of the Rings. The plot twists and turns delightfully in unexpected directions, and always, you wait for the turning of the next page. To cap it all, the heroine is the good, pure woman that is so often unshown in today's literature, a warrior queen that fights for freedom from a land bent of conquest. The work is a masterpiece of the archaic format, and beautiful even to the last epic battle. Glorious in the warrior tradition, rich in description and style, Tale of Maneath is classic that will make your heart beat faster even to the final page." Daniel, age 16 "The Tale of Manaeth: an epic romance of the kind that one just does not see any more. I look forward to the sequel!" Ethan, age 16< Less
