Overview

It begins with a boy searching for his father, a father missing these last two and a half years. It continues with a man living his life one day at a time about to marry his best friend and the love of his life. Somewhere along the line the two meet, this boy and this man; what they discover about each other, and who they really are, will change everything.

Meanwhile, forces are gathering, marshaling their strength as agents creep the streets of modern day New York in search of royalty- royalty banished some 400 years prior –to put an end to their royal line once and for all.

Darkness is on the move, and with the royal line gone, nothing can stop them from reaching their goal, the eradication of an entire nation gone these last 350 years.

Portents light the night sky, the Royal Bay has begun to shed its leaves foretelling doom and the death of a King.

Can a fallen angel, a thirteen year old man/child, and an exiled King with no memory of who he is or was, hold off the terrible forces about to be unleashed upon an unsuspecting world?

Only time will tell.

Reviews:

A new talent, states E. Finlayson of Staffordshire, UK. This book can be considered equally as a young adult book or an adult book. The plot is out of the usual and the writer builds both tension and atmosphere skillfully. Like other reviewers I could hardly put it down until it was finished, and I hope very much for a Book 2.

AMAZING! Says Ron You feel like your right there beside the characters throughout their whole journey. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone ready for an adventure. There were times while reading this book that my heart would be beating faster. Can't wait for the next book in the series! HIGHLY recommend this book!

About the Author

After meeting Frank Herbert, author of the acclaimed Dune Series, I decided the life of writing was for me. That was about 30 years ago, I've been writing ever since. Heir of Nostalgia is my first published novel, and thanks to the encouragement of my loving wife Janet, is the first in a series chronicling the trials and tribulations of young man in search of his family, his country as well as his place in the world. I am pleased to present it here, for your reading pleasure. I truly believe in the gift and wonder of reading, I hope you do as well. Here's to the land of wonder, an air of Nostalgia, and childhood memories. May we never grow too old to dream... Got a question, comment or review, I'd love to hear from you. Simply drop me a line at: heirofnostalgia@gmail.com.

Typical Smashwords publication: where books that are not ready to become books become e-books. This piece is muddled and long, and the author completely loses control of the ending. It is told in first person from the prospective of each character but it is not clear at first that that is what is happening. The characters all have the same voice which is not interesting. Poor execution.

Written in the present tense. Pass this one up.
