Who Stole the Magic Shard?
Crown Prince Tyler raised his hands. The crowd fell silent at once. “I have made my decision,” the prince announced. “From this moment forward: Christopher Fredrico is banished from the kingdom of North Raec. If he is found within our territory, his life will be forfeit."
All Chris wanted was to be a peaceful scholar who could spend a lot of time with his friends. Now, falsely accused of stealing a magical artifact, he is forced to leave the only home he knows. But as he and his friends travel towards the coast, they find a riddle that may save a kingdom—or cost them their lives.
Banished is the first book in The Riddled Stone, a serial fantasy adventure by homeschooled teen author Teresa Gaskins.
