Overview

For fans of Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and The Narnia Chronicles, the second installment in a thrilling epic fantasy series…

English schoolboy Terry West’s life has been turned upside down. His best friend Joe is missing and presumed dead. And it is all his fault. If only he hadn’t given Joe one of his rune coins. Those damn rune coins that transported him to another world where Terry is a soldier, Teern Truthbringer, who was tasked with finding the Xannu. Wars are brewing and people from many lands and religions want the ailing Xannu for themselves, and it is Teern’s job to protect him. But first he must make a perilous journey to get him cured.

Terry’s dreams also leave him out of touch with the magical woman Maria who has charge of healing Joe. How will Joe fare and will he survive in this world inhabited by warlocks, seductresses, priests and prophecy? Terry is praying he does.

But Terry’s other life is the least of his problems. Back at home his strict Granddad is coming to stay, his school work is suffering badly, and the leggy sister of his school friend Brian is trying to ask him out on a date. Why can’t everyone just leave him alone?

How will Terry balance the two lives he leads, solve two sets of problems, and understand the lessons he receives from both? Only time will tell. But time is something Terry doesn't have too much of, as everything is unfolding in ways he could never have imagined!

Meet the Author

Writing under the pen name of Paul Dorset (real name John Cox), Xannu is my first series of full-length novels. I have been writing for many years and some of my early works were published in ‘teen advice columns’. I have also had many articles published, mostly in the technical field of Computing.

I currently live in the north-west pacific city of Seattle but have traveled the globe extensively and worked many times with teens and youth groups. It is this background combined with a vivid imagination that has enabled me to weave a tapestry of magic into a complete novel. The Southern Lands series of books is aimed at youngsters of ten years and up, but the storyline is more than exciting enough to keep adults turning pages as the story unfolds.

    Loved it!! You must read it!!

    I just finished this book and really enjoyed it. The adventures that Terry is having in both his world and as Teern in the Southern Lands are really getting exciting. Terry has a new girlfriend, his interesting grandpa staying for awhile, and now a new neighbor. Teern has proclaimed the Xannu, and now taken the Xannu into the Unforgiving to be healed. Now Teern has even more questions about what his future holds for him. This book really leaves you wanting more, and I cannot wait to read the next one.
