The Torque of Kernow is the first book in an exciting new fantasy series by the legendary Raymond Buckland. He will take you on an thrilling adventure though a mystical land where a giant, a king and a king’s son devote their lives in search for a long-lost gold Torque—for once the Torque has been found, a new ruler would be enthroned, and the giants of Elbra would be able to pass peacefully on. Without a ruler, Kernow will endure brutal civil wars, horrific strife and unforeseeable famine. Peace, when it comes, will return only briefly. For many of the people, there is a constant desire to re-unite. Yet there can be no lasting peace without a ruler—and no ruler without the Torque of Kernow.


“Forget about Middle Earth, Hobbits and a ring that a grotesque creature believes to be ‘his precious.’ It takes a real-life Wizard to fully create a truly magical world, and fortunately
for us we have Raymond Buckland working his enchantment upon us in The Torque of Kernow. Through Buckland’s literary legerdemain we find ourselves following the adventures of characters that truly come alive—and some that we hope will never take form beside us, as we read this marvelous fantasy novel.”

— Brad Steiger, author of The Awful Thing in the Attic and Atlantis Rising


“This wondrous and magical tale from the undisputed Grand Master of modern Witchcraft combines the high fantasy of Tolkien with the detective-story quest popularized by The DaVinci Code and National Treasure—two of my favorite genres! ‘Kernow’ is an alternate universe version of ancient Cornwall, and Buckland’s saga follows the adventures of a diverse company of champions—including a dwarf, a healer, and a shape-shifting feara—as they follow Elemental clues across a fabulous landscape in search of the long-lost gold Torque of Kernow, the symbol of rulership bestowed by mysterious ancients over 2,000 years ago. Before the surprising conclusion, they encounter the forces of Nature, attacks by monstrous creatures, aid from strangers, and the betrayal of friends. A marvelous read!”

— Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, author of Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard
