Mr. Sunshine a retired god who is a storyteller has wrote the story of Cornell University from it's foundation. He's been sitting by watching as the story unfolds, checking in from time to time while taking a break from his other stories. The players are all there The Bohemians, who are saviors of the day in an unconventional way, the dogs who are fighting their own battles, the sprites who help out on the hill and the evil to beat all evil Rasferret The Grub. What's story without a Hero right? Enter Stephen Titus George, who is a storyteller of his own and liar extraordinaire. George is looking for love in all the wrong places he seems until he finds Calliope, sound familiar? Calliope sets many events in motion for Mr. Sunshine bringing lovers together and tearing others apart. Calliope leaves when her work is done to leave George with Aurora Borealis, are they meant to be?
That is all up to Mr. Sunshine or is it? Can George writes the ending to this story? Someone has to save the day don't they? Will he get the girl, will evil be thwarted? Happily ever after or Greek tragedy, we'll have to what till the end of the story to find out.
This book had everything packed into one heck of a story. Everyone loves reading about the fight between good and evil and this book is one very interesting way to do it. An amazing cast of characters from literally all walks of life. There is magic, harnessing of the wind, mans best friend and Tolkein. What more could you ask for. This was action packed and wonderful until the bitter end.
