A Rover Novel of Three Adventures

The Rover (Volume 4)

Tor Books




The secret to protecting the civilized world from an ancient threat may lie in the pages of three books…and it is up to master librarians of the past and present to secure these pages of knowledge.

Set in the years after Lord of the Libraries, young halfer Juhg is still growing into his job as Grandmagister when an ally from the past, the wizened wizard Craugh returns with warnings of an ancient threat that may resurface--the so-called "Kharrion's Wrath" which endangers the existence of the world. Juhg must now unlock the secrets contained in the journals of his now absent mentor Wick, the former Grandmagister and legendary hero known as "The Rover." He must also continue his documented but clandestine search for a trilogy of books, which brings him through many different realms of their very dangerous world…and into conflict and contact with other races (elves, dwarves, and men) whose fates are all intertwined among the pages of the great book of Time.

The Quest for the Trilogy weaves three separate quests into one as the young historian races against the clock to protect not just his world, but all others as well.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.


Quest for the Trilogy

"Education Is Overrated, Grandmagister Juhg!"
"Having second thoughts, Grandmagister?" a deep voice asked from behind Juhg.

“In the familiar tradition of The Lord of the Rings.” —Publishers Weekly on The Destruction of the Books

“Tolkienesque.” —Locus on The Destruction of the Books

“Smartly told.” —Library Journal on The Rover

“A charming fantasy ...a cute, smartly told pastiche of Tolkien and Terry Brooks.” —Kirkus Reviews on The Rover

“Odom has created a likable, believable character who will continue his adventures as a newly promoted Second Level Librarian in charge of great books. Fans of the movie version of Tolkien's Fellowship of the Ring will be looking for books to satisfy their interest in weefolks. Readers will enjoy the wealth of creatures in this tale of magic, mystery, and self-discovery, and will stand up and cheer for this little guy who reaches for his best shot and saves the day.” —School Library Journal on The Rover
