Nick Iuppaabout this book: Do you want to read a fantasy quest, a great adventure that will carry you across real and mythical desert lands in search of a hidden kingdom protected by monsters and populated by artists and dreamers? Try our new novel, Esteban's Quest... Magical Realism at its best.
What's it about? How did we come to write it?
John Pesqueira, my writing partner, and I had a vision of a jukebox falling from the sky, one that was magical and gave special powers to the two children who understood how to make it work. We stacked the kids and their magic against the devil himself who comes to the small village of La Sentencia to take over a failing copper mine and promote all the greed and hatred he can... to set brother against brother and families against one another. The devil is Devlin Lucero and his first recruit is a sexy school teacher who is tired of small town life and sees the copper mine as a way to riches and success. She's willing and eager to carry out any and all of Devlin's harsh instructions and watch the town tear itself apart.
But there's also a visionary in La Sentencia. Almost everyone thinks he's crazy, but Esteban Dorantes is the direct descendant of the African slave who once led Spanish Conquistadores in search for the seven cities of gold. Esteban believes that his great-great grandfather found the cities and can help him find them again. Accompanied by the woman he loves and a camel that seemingly appears out of nowhere, Esteban sets off across the desert, encountering strange prophets and wizards, as well as monsters and mysteries he could never have imagined, hoping that somehow his dreams are correct and the fabled cities still exist. But will he find them before the devil and his beguiling assistant destroy La Sentencia? Or will the kids and their magical jukebox be able to slow down the destruction just long enough for Esteban to accomplish his mission? And oh, just where did the jukebox and the camel and even the fabled cities come from to begin with? Read Esteban's Quest and find out.
