The Trials of the Core
Guardians of the Core Book 1
by Michael Thies

Futuristic Fantasy

As Edwyrd Eska approaches his two-hundredth year as Guardian of the
Core, he must find an apprentice to train under him. His title and
role compel him to safeguard and govern his universe, Gladonus, as
each Guardian before him has done and those after him shall continue
to do until relieved of such duties by will of the Ancients. Prince
Hydro Paen, Eirek Mourse, and Zain Berrese—amongst other
contestants—receive invitations to compete in a quest of Trials
intended to determine who will become Eska’s apprentice. An old
adage goes: “The toughest trials test you truest” – and these
events challenge their fortitude through tenuous partnerships,
intellectual rivalries, and battles of weapons’ mastery. Along the
way, each contestant must attempt to overcome personal demons that
haunt them. In this tale of ideal dreams and lucid aspirations, these
competitors find theirs threatened by deceit, betrayal, sabotage—and
even flesh—as all become vital to success…

Michael E. Thies is currently 23 years old and lives in Slinger, Wisconsin (a
suburb of Milwaukee). For six years he has been struggling to find
the time to write down all of the ideas and characters that come to
him while writing. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Eau
Claire with a Bachelor of Arts degree, double majoring in Advertising
and Creative Writing. During his time as an undergraduate he served
as a member of numerous organizations like Sigma Tau Delta, an
English Honor Society, and was president of the Leadership Honor
Society, Omicron Delta Kappa, and of his fraternity, Delta Sigma Phi.
When not writing, he enjoys watching TV (especially Grimm and
MadMen), playing tennis, or working out.
The idea originally started out as a short story for a seventh grade
writing assignment and, soon after, was forgotten. But upon cleaning
out his room one day in his second year of high school he found the
short story and decided to continue the idea he had but expand it to
include charismatic characters, luscious landscapes, and a
spellbinding storyline.
