Overview

Enter a fantasy world where two opposing gods remain trapped in another dimension, they exist outside the normal timelines of mortal men and are forced to spend their days in an eternal prison for a long forgotten crime. Only a mortal may travel back and forth between the two rifts that connect the god’s worlds and time. Two sects have monopolised access into these rifts, learning that with the control of the rifts comes a great power. An order of warriors and a brotherhood of magicians use them as their training grounds where men can train in their art to the extreme for years, unaffected by time; they can even die inside the rift, returning to life when their body is ejected back out to their world. Think, “Entering a world like ‘Groundhog Day’ but with magic and swords, where you can learn from your mistakes over an infinite time, returning from the gods rifts with superhuman ability.” With their unbeatable talents and finely honed abilities both sects have the world in the palm of their hands, but the magicians want more. Powerful new crystals are discovered in the mines and the brotherhood of magician’s instigate a war to control this valuable resource that can bend the order of warriors to their will, ensuring total control and perhaps even the power to free their god. Discovering that a young lady, Athene, had been conceived inside the war god’s rift the magicians stumble upon her ability - a natural resistance to magic and their hunt for her begins; believing that she has the ability to neutralise the magic that holds their god. As nations fall, a small underground movement lead by a renegade magician work against this threat, aiding Athene to escape the magicians grasp. Helped by, a warrior, a king and a thief they evade the magician’s attempts to capture her, but when the magicians finally resort to unleashing an ancient killer from a forgotten time to track her down, the odds are stacked against her

Meet the Author

Born in Croydon in 1971, my family moved to Norfolk where I grew up from an early age. After not taking school very seriously I then went on to continue my lack of interest in education at college for another year, before finally deciding that that it just wasn’t for me, instead took a new path and joining the Royal Air Force Regiment. After twelve years’ service, during which I got married, I had had more than my fill of military life and left to pursue a career in IT, for once with an element of success. However over the years, the old bedtime stories of myths and legends in the back of my head slowly worked their way back to the front. Now they have returned, in a new form – The Tanarian Chronicles, I hope that you enjoy them.

Reading this was an unexpected treat. The story was fantastic, and just over 800 pages. The only reason i give it 4 stars was because of the numerous spelling and grammatical errors. You couldnt tell when one person was speaking and another began... regardless, great story and fascinating world.

Slow at first, and jumps around alot. Could use an editor. The story gets very deep and super enjoyable. The different talents of all the characters, good or evil, make this a good read. Well worth the time to read. I give it 4 stars for the bad spelling and makeup
