Young Adult Medieval Adventure Novel Promotes Self-Reliance

"NEW YORK—Aug. 10, 2021—Morgan James’ new release, Scourge: The Kiss of Death, by Terry Weston Marsh, is a medieval adventure novel for young adults which follows the journey of a young peasant who must battle a murderous tyrant and a deadly plague to save the woman he loves.

Geoffrey, a young man of noble birth, is horribly disfigured as a child the night his parents are murdered. Raised by a peasant family and on the verge of starvation, Geoffrey decides to reclaim his inheritance—setting him on a dangerous path of terrible secrets and bitter betrayal—as he fights to save himself, his country, and his beloved.

An exciting coming-of-age novel, Scourge shows young people that courage and self-reliance are the true ingredients for success—not sorcery or super-powers. Scourge honestly explores the challenges of being different in a world that prizes conformity, fostering the concept of self-acceptance and reminding young adults to be true to themselves.
