Book excerpt for Knight in the Forest of the Pons by Joshua Heights

in the Forest of the Pons
Joshua Heights
Prepare yourself for a magnificent journey… Nassor Wickem,
leader of the Knights of Sperenza, has been in many battles, with two headed
dragons, with beasts that creep and crawl, and with fierce lions who have
pierced his flesh in death brawls.  But after learning that his beautiful
daughter has been stricken by a terrible brain syndrome, his body
trembled and his nerves shook like never before.  The brave
Knight, hell-bent on slaying and saving the day, tries everything he can
to cure his daughter.  However, with the help of a mysterious Shaman, he
quickly comes to terms that in this battle, love, not the sword, is the weapon
of choice.
As Lily peacefully
slept, deep inside her brain, the shadowy monster from Lake Chandra found
itself a comfortable place that was hidden deep within the Pons and nestled
quietly and mysteriously with intent. While the neurologist explained further
about the port wine stain, the parents listened. A device known as a Pulse Dye
Laser had been used, very successfully, to remove the stain, but it could take
numerous surgeries to get to that point. “Surgery!” gasped Muriel beginning to cry.
“Nassor, please take Lily and put her in her crib.” Muriel said to Nassor. He
softly lay Lily down and covered her. She squirmed briefly, made a few squeaks,
but fell back into a deep, peaceful sleep. Sitting up in her bed, Muriel looked
intently at the doctor and with doe-like eyes said, “Surgery? Doctor, what are
you saying?” “The procedure is invasive. Surgery is such a broad term. I didn’t
mean to frighten you.” “Well you did.” whispered Muriel reaching for her
husband’s hand.
