About the Author

I am a creator of worlds and a destroyer of words. As a fantasy writer, my works range from traditional epics to futuristic fantasy with starships. I have worked as an unpaid Little League pitcher, a cashier, a student library aide, a factory grunt, a cubicle drone, and an engineer--there is some overlap in the last two.

Through it all, though, I was always a storyteller. Eventually I started writing books based on the stray stories in my head, and people kept telling me to write more of them. Now, that's all I do for a living.

I enjoy strategy, worldbuilding, and the fantasy author's privilege to make up words. I am a gamer, a joker, and a thinker of sideways thoughts. But I don't dance, can't sing, and my best artistic efforts fall short of your average notebook doodle. When you read my books, you are seeing me at my best.

My ultimate goal is to be both clever and right at the same time. I have it on good authority that I have yet to achieve it.

I have to say that this book really caught me off guard in a good way. This is some serious, classic fantasy. This is sword and sorcery, high fantasy, epic, hard fantasy, you name it. Don't let the size of the book put you off, it is long, yes. However, this is a world that needs some time to be built in the reader's eye and with good reason and fabulous end results. Kyrus is just an ordinary man making a living at something he's good at. He never suspects that his dreams might actually be real somewhere else. Brannis is your literal Knight in shining armor kind of guy and even though he's surrounded by magic on a daily basis and should be able to practice it, he simply thinks his dreams are showing him what life could have been like. There is so much detail I could get into, but I did love this book. Fantasy will always be my first love. But I do have to say this: the book had a bit of a slow start, but it's worth it. It wasn't mind numbingly boring, it just built the details you needed to know through the characters and dialogue. Once things got rolling, very hard to put it down. I know lots of people out there who will look at the cover of a book and might be tempted to bypass this one because of the simplicity, but don't! The intricate tale told within will have you ignoring that in no time.

I read it twice to get all the details. The reader begins to care about the characters as the background about them unfolds as the story progresses. The slow release of character traits makes them seem real and likable (or hate-able). The maps allow the reader better visualize the worlds that J.S. Morin has created. The book is very well written and the story flows smoothly from chapter to chapter. The concept of of being able to interact between two worlds is intriguing.
