Book Three

Questing for Uberjoy

This third and final book of the Post-Lux Trilogy, takes the reader to new heights of drama and adventure. Set in the war-ravaged kingdoms of Nepal and Tibet, this heart-wrenching journey of discovery delivers breathtaking Action / Adventure in a powerful and unforgettable saga of human aspiration, romantic infatuation, international intrigue, and high-minded drama, amidst a covert special operations rescue mission. At once exotic, quixotic, captivating, and thrilling in its epic world-altering dimensions, Konrad Ventana’s Questing for Uberjoy is a literary treasure to behold.


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 Maoist Nepal, no less. Her fiancé, 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. Soon, Orion’s search targets not only his fiancé, but the meaning of life itself.

Set in the Himalayan mountains—where earth meets sky in more ways than one—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 danger, it is a story that could change your life and send you out on your own heroic quest.”
