Overview

Ross Brigham comes home from Afghanistan to discover his father Ed, a notable fantasy author, has died. When Ross begins to investigate his father's death after the nearly 200-attendee funeral, he and two loyal fans discover a key that leads them to the parallel world in his father's gunslinger novels -- and a secret war that's been raging since the beginning of time. Rebelling against the pact they made with the gods for immortality, the muses have turned from inspiring art to inspiring atrocities -- and it's up to Ross, Sawyer, and Noreen to put a stop to it before every dimension goes up in flames.

Inspired by the wainscot and portal classics he grew up with, S. A. Hunt's The Whirlwind in the Thorn Tree is the visionary beginning of a series that will dive into the metaphysical center of what it means to create...and what it means to destroy. Join our protagonists as they go from modern-day Earth to the sands of an exotic parallel world, where a climactic battle will take place on the shores of consciousness...and challenge the rules of the written word itself.

Editorial Reviews

Jan Berry
"Once I got started, I did NOT want to stop reading. In short, your story is a masterpiece. This is hands-down one of the most interesting, well-crafted books I've read. I love the importance of scarcity theme you wove into the story - it was a profound thought that resonated with me. The best kind of book not only entertains, but gives you a new idea or paradigm shift to chew on for a bit."
authonomy.com - A. C. Wiles
"A very good writer. Both the descriptive writing and the dialogue appears effortless and incredibly natural. I've only had time to read four chapters but I really like the premise and I will definitely read more."
authonomy.com - Clive Radford
"What an interesting and somewhat unique concept. Many divergent themes explored here with a compelling approach to character and plot development. It's a well paced story which is begging for a thunder-flash dramatic ending."
authonomy.com - Richard M
"Very descriptive, very dreamy and above all else, very good."
authonomy.com - Pamela McMillan
"Your first chapter was perfect, it drew me in and captured my attention. I was going to stop at the end of chapter 4 but you left me at such a cliff hanger, I went onto 6. I really enjoy your dialogue; it’s quick, to the point, witty, and very revealing about the characters themselves."

    This was an excellent read. I originally picked it up from Nook

    This was an excellent read. I originally picked it up from Nook because the title looked interesting to me. As I began reading it I found it harder and harder to put the book down until the "end" of the story. Now, I just bought the second book and hope it's as good a read as the first.

    confusing and laborious

    I tried to like it but I felt like the author was improvising as the story went along with now rhyme or reason. I thought the author was trying to showoff - using big words and many details. I never cared for the well being of the characters because it was too scattered like the author was given a script to now add this to the story then another and another like some improv comedy routines.
