Book cover from REACH  (Issues) (3 Book Series) by Joe Pezzula
Book › Kindle ebook
REACH is a three-part adventure that follows a family
line over three different eras as they pursue
a mythical treasure. We begin in the time of King
Richard, through to the samurai of the Sengoku
Period, eventually ending up in the American West.
Three distinct stories, each self-contained, yet
connected over the centuries to form a single
narrative of warning, a cautionary tale of overzealous
pursuit towards that which might better
be left untouched.
