Candii, the Rock Hall of Fame bassist of the world's greatest band, The Non-Traditional Key Gullz, believed retirement would be all sunshine, unicorns, and rainbows. However, after the evil wizard queen Morgana loots the magic from her 30 pet unicorns, Candii must travel to the Land of Rock and jam her way through hordes of magical minions to save her ranch! It won't be easy especially when the band finds out that in the Land of Rock evil isn't so easily understood!

Candii's Quest is an adventurous fantasy novel that follows the journey of a determined protagonist named Candii. Set in the whimsical and magical Continent of the Jam Gods, the story introduces us to Candii, a skilled musician with an extraordinary gift: the ability to communicate with and harness the power of unicorns. When her treasured unicorn companions are threatened by the malevolent sorceress Morgana, Candii embarks on a daring mission to rescue them and prevent Morgana from using their magic for nefarious purposes. Throughout her quest, Candii grapples with moral dilemmas, self-discovery, and the complexities of power and responsibility. Candii's Quest is a world filled with imaginative landscapes, mythical creatures, and unexpected twists. Through her trials and triumphs, Candii's journey ultimately leads her to a deeper understanding of herself, her companions, and the boundless potential of the magic that unites them all.

Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn protaganists challenge the oppressive Lord Ruler's regime using their unique magical abilities much like the bandmates of Candii's Quest. The Belgariad series by David Eddings follows Garion and his companions on a quest to recover a stolen magical orb and confront an evil sorcerer just like in Candii's Quest. And like The Princess Bride by William Goldman, Candii's Quest combines fairy tale elements, fascinating characters, and humorous dialogue with action-packed confrontations and daring escapades.
