The Auxilium and the Pravus are at a sort of tug of war with humanity as the rope. The former tries to help mankind become all the species can be while the latter works on the fall of people by eradicating any residual decency. The battleground is usually balanced but rarely a particular person is born who will bring goodness or vileness to all in their circle.

In that environs engaged lovers Bruce and Gloria are the latest hostages in this eternal battle. The Pravus Macul spirit Enervata has taken demonic possession of Gloria. Bruce is her only hope and he despairs on whether he is up to the quest. He is joined by allies who search for the Four Pillars of Humanity, which if found and activated will enable Bruce to fight to the death Enervata.

AMERICAN QUEST is an exciting urban fantasy in which the audience will want to join the trek across the country. Bruce is a terrific hero willing to die to save the life of his beloved; others also sacrifice to assist him on his impossible quest. The background mythos is cleverly introduced as an interwoven part of the excellent story line. Sienna Skyy soars with this stupendous opening saga.
