Meet the Arkadians--a young bean counter turned hero, a poet turned jackass, a girl of marvels, a king disguised as a peasant, and others who play across an epic stage, firmly connecting the quest of a young protagonist to those of classical heroes and heroines of ancient Greek storytelling--and reminding readers that danger, daring, and romance are still the most thrilling of literary devices.
