The Gnome in the Tapestry
They pulled their hair out and screamed. They waited for heaven's mercy or hell's fury to fall on them. That was the typical response recorded 950 years ago, when the moon fell upon the earth, opened a huge fissure and released a great demon to plague the land.
Life was never the same. The gnomes disappeared deep into the mountains, and the beloved King Trellin just vanished. Civilization and magic slowly disintegrated.
Vincent, however, was convinced the king was still alive. Joining his search was the elf, Kandlas, and a rare gnome, Khan.
They are not the only ones looking. The evil, master savant, Devout, joins the race to find the lost king. While Devout is tracking centuries-old clues, someone from his past is hunting him.
In their dash for salvation, revenge, and control; one holds tragedy, one holds desolation, and one holds the hope for the rebirth of their world. But which one is which?
The Gnome in the Tapestry is a wonderful story of courage, friendship and adventure. G.A. Teske brings to life a vivid portrait of three young friends in their quest to find the last elf king. Creatures of fantasy, both good and evil, spring to life in this fast-paced novel that is sure to thrill.

Racing the Moon
In the Kingdom of Anyullyn, the past has become entangled with the present. An ancient king returns to claim his throne while the approach of a lost moon endangers all life on earth.
King Trellin has chosen his champions to recover a hidden magical relic that might be powerful enough to save the world.
Vincent Whitehorse, the leader of a few young adventurers, humans, elf, and gnome, scour the realm, following obscure clues, searching for the links of the Chain of Anyullyn.
An evil presence, the demon Geggermane, also desires the Chain, for with it he can transport more of his kind from the wayward moon, Itarris, to plague their world.
So, the race is on to restore the most powerful, magical relic in the land, before Itarris arrives at its final appointment. Can a small group of young people solve this puzzle and possibly save a world?“
Fans of George R.R. Martin and Steven Erikson will be sure to enjoy G.A. Teske’s Racing the Moon. Teske’s gritty authenticity and boundless imagination rival some of the big names in fantasy. The red demon Geggermane—unleashed upon a world already torn by dissent and jealousy—is the stuff of nightmares, as frightening as he is devious. It falls to an ancient king and his youthful heroes to stand against an evil of unspeakable power.”
—Jim Melvin, author of The Death Wizard Chronicles, a six-book epic fantasy
Links to the Past
Vincent Whitehorse has failed. Betrayed by a trusted friend, the only magical relic that can save Anyullyn from destruction has been stolen from him and delivered to his enemies.
The world's last hope of salvation now depends upon the mysterious northern elves, the Anyull Duvalae, who neither Vincent nor his friends trust.
For over nine hundred years, since the previous cataclysm, the elves have lived in isolation, thier motives known only to themselves.
While Vincent puzzles out Anyull Duvalae intentions, the demon Geggermane, weaves his own plans to make certain the moon, Itarris, falls to earth.
If the realm is destroyed a second time, no one will be able to resist Geggermane, and the whole world will fall under his dominion.
The last ounce of strength, the final fragment of power, the ultimate breath of life. What is left when all of these have been exhausted?
For Vincent Whitehorse it was always faith, but that was before the demon murdered his wife. Now, hope is fading that any magic will be strong enough to deliver the world from total destruction as the moon draws near.
Will the curse of the Soul Sword toll the death knell for civilization, or deliverance for all of mankind?
