Overview

Harry Potter and The Hobbit meet in Narnia! Fans are enjoying all three flavors in this epic story!

When a portal to another world cracks open just outside the small town of Riverside, it sets off a series of events forever changing the lives of two boys; one boy is chosen to lead a world to peace while the other one is chosen to tear it apart.
Simon Whittaker lives an ordinary teenage life until his best friend, Jessica Wells, and her family takes him on a last-minute camping trip. There, amongst towering pines, Jessica confesses a secret; her family has been watching over Simon his entire life because he is the key to another world’s salvation, and now someone has come from that world to kill him. Amidst a whirlwind of unanswered questions, doubt, and curiosity, Simon is given the Ring of Affinity and then is led through a magic portal into the land of Magnanthia.
In the faraway land that’s in the midst of a brutal war, Simon must place his life in the hands of a swordsman, ranger, cleric, and wizard sent to teach him how to wield the power in the Ring of Affinity and to help him become the next guardian of Magnanthia. The ring, Simon is told, has chosen him, a rare and honorable event. But no one knows why.
Meanwhile, the once peaceable king of Magnanthia, King Elderten, has ordered death to Magnanthia’s nine guardians, those he believes are responsible for the death of his queen and the kingdom’s devastation.

If he can stay alive long enough, Simon will become the first guardian of Magnanthia to be chosen by the Ring of Affinity, instead of appointed by mere men. Simon remains the only hope for those who believe the guardians are innocent.
Jak Jakobsin, another teenager from Earth, is pulled through a portal by two of Bedlam’s demented soul seers sent to capture Simon. The soul seers are impressed with what they see in Jak, so they offer him up to the overlord. Obsessed with his discovery of magic spells, power, and control, Jak quickly acclimates to his new environment. Bedlam’s overlord plans to use Jak, along with Bedlam’s undead army, to build a force so powerful that the great King Elderten will perish and Magnanthia will be his forever.

Portals, Passages & Pathways is a teen young adult novel that creatively combines fantasy fiction and real fiction like C. S. Lewis' beloved The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. It delves deep into an epic adventure in a fantasy world rich in magic and wondrous creatures, much like J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. A must-read for any sword and sorcery fantasy fan!
