Overview

Opening your coat closet and unexpectedly discovering a portal into another world can be a slightly jarring experience.

Spotting a dragon staring back at you through said portal should have sent any sane person running for the hills.

Good thing John was still a bit hung over.

Realizing that the dragon didn’t harbour any nefarious designs, John decided that a change of scenery was in order, and opted for a vacation to the exotic city of Iathera.

Befriending an enigmatic green-skinned woman and a wizard with a penchant for bathrobes, his impromptu holiday is cut short by news of an unprovoked attack on an allied nation.

Having trekked across an entire ocean to wage war, the nation of Kierd had laid siege to the Nebar Cluster for reasons unknown. With Kierd wielding devastating weapons never before seen in that world, the surrounding region is rapidly thrown into unrest.

Still not exactly sure if there was a reason that he was brought here, he finds that his unique insights into this strange new world could be the key into tipping the conflict back in the Cluster’s favour.

Meet the Author

Seems the only time I get writer’s block is when I’m trying to write about myself. I’ll flesh this section out eventually, but, to quote the words of Neil Gaiman, "I’m just making things up and writing them down."

You know what? Now I feel a little bad.

You see, I have a confession. I’ve never actually read anything by Neil Gaiman. Of course, I know of him, but I inexplicably never got around to reading any of his books. However, judging from the YouTube videos I’ve seen, he looks like a nice fella’. In truth, the only reason I know that quote is because I saw it on his Twitter profile after I Googled him.

Sorry, Neil. If it’s any consolation at all, Stardust is one of my all-time favourite movies…

    First nook book

    So this is the first book that I got on my nook, I figured that I needed/wanted to get back into reading and I should start with free books... So me figureing that the free books might not be as good as paid for books, I was swiftly proven wrong with this book, a great read and I look forward to the second episode

    Starts off running

    Starts off running and doesn't stop. The characters are introduced as they come into play and fleshed out along with the settings. I have just started the second book and I am finding it just as good as the first. One thing I like about the story is while there are a lot of characters they are introduced one or two at a time so you get to know them before they are thrown in with the rest.
    Please keep writing!
