The Quest comes alive with high-spirited characters, heart-wrenching romance, awe-inspiring scenery, and breath-taking action in a masterful and compelling saga of human aspiration, international intrigue, and high-altitude drama played out upon the "Rooftop of the World" in a bold and daring Special Operations rescue mission.

Excerpt from the Back Cover:

They called her "Uberjoy," but her real name was Joycelyn Eberhard. She was a finalist in the Miss Teen Idaho beauty pageant, but now she's gone missing -- in China, no less. Her fiance, Orion, worried when she signed up for the Peace Corps, but he never expected something like this. Her disappearance is shattering to him, so he has no choice but to head overseas and search for the woman he loves. His search takes him to the remote Himalayan Mountains in Nepal and Tibet, where getting help from local authorities is not as easy as he would have hoped. He is forced to seek assistance elsewhere, from intrepid special operations mercenaries and unorthodox mountaineering guides. "Questing for Uberjoy" is a quest for love. It is also a quest for meaning, as Eastern culture surrounds heroic Orion and teaches him more about himself than any experience in America. One moment philosophical and the next filled with extreme danger, it is a story that could change your life and send you on your own heroic quest.

Konrad Ventana's "Questing for Uberjoy" is a dazzling jewel of a novel -- a personal treasure to have and to give. Now available as Hardcover, Softcover, and eBook versions from, Barnes & Noble, or your preferred bookseller: 978-1-4620-2953-2 (HC ISBN); 978-1-4620-2952-5 (SC ISBN).
