Publishers Description It was supposed to be a big celebration. John McFarland (uncle to Wesley, Kurt, Lisa and Mary) and his long lost Eleanor were getting married. But a typhoon kept nearly every one of their friends and family from attending the wedding ceremony in Hong Kong. And by the time everyone did arrive for the reception at a downtown hotel, John and Eleanor had disappeared without a trace While their parents and the Hong Kong authorities set about searching for the missing couple, Mary, Wesley, Kurt and Lisa begin their own investigation. Convinced that John and Eleanor have been transported to the mystical kingdom of Anthropos, the four amateur sleuths hit a dead end. How can they get to Anthropos? And once they get there, how will they know where to look?As Book 5 in John White's Archives of Anthropos unfolds, the sleuths are confronted with an even bigger challenge than finding Uncle John and Eleanor. In Anthropos an evil sorcerer plots the destruction of his eternal enemy--a tiny infant who (if he survives) is destined to become King of Anthropos and conqueror of Lord Lunacy.

Reviews - What do customers think about Quest for the King (Archives of Anthropos/John White, Bk 5)?
Dear Andrew Harrise Jan 23, 2003
Sorry if I spelt your name incorrectly but what you said was untrue and gave off the wrong impression of the book. I wonder what you were thinking when you wrote this interviewI loved the book and was deeply enveloped in the story, I think it is a good reference to the story it was based on.
It's okay, but oddly inconsistent. Mar 24, 2002
I love the Anthropos books, but this one was quite different in tone and writing style, and just doesn't feel like a part of the series. That, plus the fact that the allegory is just WAY too blatant in this one. Sorry John, love your other stuff, but I'm not too sure what you were thinking with this one.
John White's "Quest for the King" is an excellent book Oct 28, 1998
I thought that it was a great book. Throughout the whole book I was just totally enveloped in the plot. Also, I could kind of guess where the people were and what they were about to do better than in his other books. If you like C.S. Lewis, you'll love John White's "Quest for the King" or any of his other Archives of Anthropos series books.
