Meet the Author

With high morals, imagination and a delicious craze for fantasy, The Rostical Users was born.

Written like it's a script from a video game and an ongoing manga, we hope to see our adventures on the big screen one day.

Michael Rogers, an author that absolutely hates reading (even his own series) and has never read a full adult sized book in his life, is a prime example that you can do anything once you've set yourself a goal or dream.

Any questions or enquires, you may contact me here; rostical@live.com

    ┬┐Sceldrant's Comet┬┐ is book one of the six book series, The Rost

    “Sceldrant's Comet” is book one of the six book series, The Rostical Guild, by Michael Rogers. It tells the story of Rachael, a young adult who helps her father's paintballing business from going astray while he's out in overseas meetings. When she watches a strange comet "Sceldrant's Comet", she finds herself thrusted into a strange and dangerous world with little to no help, except for crazy captains.
    The story is pretty straightforward. Rachael (with Twortz) needs to return home, but they have no idea how to get there. They find some unlikely friends along the way and learn the ways of Rostical.
    Eventually, they find themselves in the largest city in the world (all kept hidden on a small island inside a Spacial Funnel) and use its database to find any clues about Earth or getting back to it.
    After hearing bad news, they form a guild all through a seven year old boy and that was a scene which watered my eyes, maybe it was because of the innocence Karol seems to be portrayed?
    Strengths: there are a couple: most notably the different morals or characteristics of each characters. When reading the start of a series, I find myself initially confused with each character until they "grow" on you. How attaching the Author makes you feel for each character. For example, right near the start when Rachael got transported to the strange world, I was under the impression she might have died from that Scoldrant (rock golem).
    Weaknesses: a few typos (at least the version I got) and Lezard's randomness? He's funny, but someone going "Ooo, plot twist." or "Holy fish cakes" some times lowered the dramatic effect of some scenes.
    Overall, I liked this just as much if not more than The Rostical User's series (as of right now). And like The Rostical Users, with Lance, Luna is also the one that currently shines out to be the more "out there" character.
    The story ends as a prequel which I didn't see coming and you DON'T need to read The Rostical Users to fully enjoy this book! 4.5 from me, but I rounded it up.
    Look forward to the next in the series and I recommend you give this a try and if you have, read the next series while you wait.

    The Rostical Guild: Sceldrant's Comet. The first chapter follows

    The Rostical Guild: Sceldrant's Comet. The first chapter follows different characters at different worlds. You have young adults to teenagers from Earth and another set of characters that live in a mystical world where fantasy lovers can drool over.
    The way the Author skips between these characters is well written as you'd either get bored and the scene would drag out.Later in the book their stories combine and the story follows the whole "party".
    Each character is vastly different. My favorite is Rachel. She's strong willed, powerful and down to Earth. She's a strong lead despite not knowing much about the new world.
    Luna, her reaction to finding out about her situation was well done and little funny (to me). I found her swearing a little rude, but it gave her character depth and I would probably do the same.
    There's really interesting ideas like the interaction between a creature named Destiny that can understand what Luna wants.
    Like in the book's description, it's like I'm reading a script of some sorts and I'd really think this would be an amazing audiobook.
    Due to some errors and confusing sentences, I would rate this a 4.5.I would never rate anything a 5 unless I cried (just the kind of reader I am).
    Since there's another series called The Rostical Users, I'll give that a try while I wait for the other instalment to this series.

    As a large person, I've really connected with Twortz and how she struggled mentally with being overweight. I adore and respect authors that put relatable characters in their story. I had no trouble getting used to the format! I will be buying the next book and the Michael. R's next series

    Characters from Earth getting transported to another world fille

    Characters from Earth getting transported to another world filled with Rostical/Magic. I get that same excited feeling when I first read The Rostical Users. Right near the end you see Ashton and Lance waking up in the same world, exactly how it happened in Book 1 of the previous series. Does this mean it follows the same timeline? How would the Author manage to do that? I'm really excited to find out more and Twortz being able to manipulate sound, not often in fantasy novels people with sound based abilities can be interesting, but the way the characters are fleshed out (including their flaws) makes this a fantastic series. I'm once again hooked! I advise you to give this a read to the end and prove me wrong?
