About the Author

I am a writer, martial arts expert, and mystic from Richmond, VA. My works include the novels Chatters on the Tide, Ghilan, and The 14th Mansion, as well as numerous poems, ‘zines, comic books, and short pieces. My short-story “Sign of the Times” appears in the Fall 2012 issue of the Hulltown 360 Literary Journal. A martial artist for over twenty-five years, I am the founder and First Elder of Cabal Fang, an initiatory martial art marrying practical self-defense techniques with the wonders of the Western Mystery Tradition. In 2011 I was awarded the rank of Master by the Combat Martial Arts Practitioners Association. On the subject of martial arts I have penned The Cabal Fang Martial Arts Manual, Wisdom of the Raven, and the popular pamphlet Self-Defense for Activists. I graduated from the University of Virginia in 1983 with a B.A. in English. My wife and I are the proud parents of four children and three grandchildren.

To be honest trying to give a summary of the story without spoilers is a bit harder than I thought it would be. The story revolves around a teenage boy, Ergie, which comes face to face with an ancient race of creatures that do not have a happily-ever-after planned for the city. Ergie is faced with overwhelming odds that he may or may not prevail against. His family is in danger as well as the girl he has come to realize he cannot live without. First off the author created an entire language for this series. A language that is introduced the same way we learned how to speak our own native tongue. As much as I love languages I do not feel my brain functions to the point of creating a brand new one. The story is told through current events as well as history flashbacks so that you may learn where these creatures originate. You get to learn as Ergie learns. It puts your belief on the between that of fiction and non-fiction. You begin to second guess what you know as fact. Mitchell sets the pace in the initial chapters so that when things began to move along you wouldn’t feel lost. I recommend the book because it was a terrific read it was laid out for all minds alike. It keeps you on your seats edge. Will Ergie be able to save his family? What about the girl he loves? There is enough action to keep you interested and you feel like you’ve learned something, but is it real or just fiction? Cannot wait for the next book to come out.
