Meet the Author

I am an education consultant who works for state government in the area of curriculum. Prior to my current job, I taught American and world history at a number of colleges and universities in California, Georgia, and South Carolina. I started writing fiction in graduate school. In addition to my novels and short works, I have written a lot of serialized fantasy fiction that has been posted on the Story Hour forum at the Dungeons & Dragons fan site EnWorld.org, including stories placed in the Forgotten Realms, Shackled City, and Rappan Athuk settings. These stories have collectively received over two thousand reader posts and three hundred thousand page views. I am also an active member of the player community for the multiplayer computer game Neverwinter Nights, and have released over two dozen modules for that game on the Neverwinter Vault Web site. My doctorate is in European history, and I live with my wife, who is an attorney, in Sacramento, California.

    Excellent first books to this godswar trillogy. 1138 pages that will keep you wondering what will happen next. I was suprised this book was receiving these poor reviews. Expertly written, with deep, emotional characters. The first 400 or so pages really set the scene, and although may slow te book down, gives you the background and perspective to thoroughly be engrossed in the rest of this tale. 5 stars

    Good book

    It was an easy and good read. Without giving anything away, I liked that some things were left only vaguely explained.

    Too many notes

    Although I enjoyed the story, it needed massive editing. Also there were times when place relationships were confusing. I skipped over much of the verbage.

    This book needs some severe editing. The first 200 pages just drug on and on. I almost gave up. It does get better but still has a lot of unnecessary stuff that really takes away from the story.

    A definite must read!

    From the moment I finished the first paragraph of the first chapter, I knew I'd love this book! The concept of choosing mortals to 'fix' a problem has been used throughout the ages. But Mr. McDonald, adds a nice new twist to it. I loved it and want the next one as soon as I can afford it! If you are into reading CJ Cherryh, Tolkein & Terry Brooks. You must read this!
