Q ~ Quests

There's really nothing I love better than a great fantasy story, complete with knights, dragons and elves.  A great quest is usually required.  Whether it is for a ring or whether it is to defeat an evil creature, it doesn't matter to me.

I love the sweeping drama, romance and scares.  I love the fact that the fate of the whole, entire world rests with a few unlikely heroes.  I just love a good quest.

My favorite quests have been found in The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever by Stephen R. Donaldson and The Dark Tower series by Stephen King, although The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan is a very close second.


  1. Indeed, books with quests are just wonderful and spellbinding. It keeps one hooked with thrill. One of my favorites too.
    Thanks for sharing :)
    Best Wishes!

  2. I never really thought about the quest aspect of what I have been reading. I am currently reading The Wheel of Time series and I love it. I also love The Hobbit and The Lord of Rings. Great post, thanks for sharing.

    Stopping by from A to Z: Q for Quiet. Not in my house!

  3. There's a lot of fun to be had with a quest. When the heroes are up against seemingly unbeatable odds, that drives up the excitement too.

  4. For me the greatest quest series is and will be Time of Wheel series; just setting up my new house and am arranging my bookshelf that I can reach out for them to begin again!!!

  5. Yes! Books with quests in them are pretty cool - probably one of the reasons I like them is simply because the word "quest" is so neat and special sounding in and of itself. :)
