Where the River Rocks Glow, Book 1: Formation
The epic, world-crossing tale of a place just beyond our own, where gods are closer to memory than to myth. The account of an incredible journey, an ending age, and the beginnings of a new. There will be powerful magic and monstrous creatures, thrilling adventures and fantastic new cultures, but here you'll find no fairy godparents or prophesied heroes, nor evil overlords and beastly villains, only unusual people in extraordinary circumstances. Honor and loyalty, promises and love; this is a story of friends and family, human or not, finding their own ways home.
William Glenn, orphaned by World War Two, grew up in the United Kingdom with a circumstantially average life, not terribly bad, but not particularly great either. And just when he's got his future figured out, it's all taken away. He finds himself in a new and confusing world of magic, mystery, and celestial phenomena. But there is a sliver of a chance at getting back home and to the love of his life, so of bloody course he plans to take it, no matter how long, or impossible, the journey may be.
Cheerio to overused races, old rules of magic, and common cliches. My characters are multi-layered and dynamic, the world is unforgiving, and things won't always go hunky-dory. If you're looking for a head-twisting, gut-busting, eye-widening, heart-touching, foot-tapping, and page-turning adventure, then this is for you!
