Overview

Ogres and trolls aren't so much beasts as they are quirky neighbors with severe underbites who dislike footwear. In this sequel to EXPIRING COVENANT, HAMLET THRIVING, and OGRE WARLOCK HEALER, a young man learns of character, integrity, and family—that all creatures are individuals despite the generalizations he's been raised with.

Mourning his mother's death in a recent plague and his father's desertion, Paul has chafed long enough at the high peaks lair of the ogre dragonrider where he's been stranded. The sixteen-year-old dares a mountain escape to search for his father, but finds Northerners don't embrace strangers, especially young men on the road alone, and it almost costs him his life.

The Black Lake residents, giants and little people he's been raised to distrust, nurse Paul from near-death, and offer him a home. Morgan, the local warlock healer, claims Paul can reach the ethereal. That's a surprise to Paul, but it explains the strange sensations he's been experiencing, the visions and emotions that made him question his wits. The warlock offers to apprentice him, however the wizard council wants no others wielding the majic of the ethereal, especially an ogre and commoner from the Range.

Paul and Morgan join a wizard with his own issues and are drawn into northern intrigue when the ancient queen dragon tells them they're fated to put down a plot that threatens war. Paul and Morgan defy a council death sentence, rogue wizards who hold Morgan's sweetheart hostage, a conspiracy, and fickle dragons tempted to snack on them. Paul's majic must mature quickly if he's to survive.

Meet the Author

R. Mac Wheeler (skip the 'R' if you're calling him for dinner, or most anything else) has jumped out of planes, driven motorcycles like an idiot, shot lots of guns (never with ear protection, what?), ridden helicopters, rappelled down cliffs, explored mine shafts, skied on water and snow, kayaked, had surgery on both knees and shoulders (thanks mostly to basketball), and moved across the continent. Most days lately though his weekly excitement entails a two hour motorcycle ride with his Labrador, Molly (she wears Doggles; gets lots of camera action). Otherwise he mostly sits quietly eight hours a day allowing his rather sane but free flowing mind to cast plot ideas one after another.

A native Texan (and proud of it; don't mess with Texas), Mac has called South Florida home for the past twenty-five years (ahh, no dust storms, just inconvenient hurricanes), where he and his wife lovingly bicker about most everything (like folks in their fifties are supposed to) between laughing at their three goofy dogs.

A former computer programmer, project manager, and all-around nerd, Mac now focuses full time on science fiction, fantasy, and paranormal that leverages the quirkiness and emotions of real life more often than the farfetched.
