The Letter for the King

The Letter for the King - Tonke Dragt

Tiuri is about to become a knight. The ceremony is tomorrow. This last night is supposed to be spent in seclusion and complete silence. But then he hears a cry for help. If Tiuri answers, he will not be knighted. But it is a matter of life and death…

Tiuri opens the door. The stranger outside asks him a question that will change his life forever. He has to deliver a secret letter to the king on the other side of the mountains – a letter that will determine the fate of the entire realm. Tiuri has to leave everything behind – his home, his dreams, his friends – and go on a mission that could cost him his life.
