Young love, politics and war plus a hero's journey

  • Feb 11, 2013
This middle book of the Marenon Chronicles sends Silas off on a classic quest to find the Gatekeeper. Meanwhile politics, war, and deviously devised misunderstandings test the humans of Merenon almost to their limits. Young love faces the twin frustrations of ancient evil and divided loyalties. Readers delve into the depths of internal dialog. Betrayals loom at every corner, and leisurely explanations occasionally confuse. But the quest is well-plotted and the story’s hard to put down. An intriguing take on death and second death adds mystery to the tale, and I enjoyed the sense of completion at the end... and the feeling of gathering storms of war promising more in the conclusion.
Disclosure: I was given free ecopies of these three books by the author and I’m sorry it took so long to read them. I enjoyed them all.

About this product


Ever since I could first string words together, I loved writing fiction. I would always take my stories to my parents and they would read them, giving me positive feedback. Now, I write for the masses, and am happy to see that I still get wonderful feedback from readers from all over the world. I aim to entertain and leave boring at the door with my fast-paced stories. I hope you continue to enjoy my books, as much as I enjoy writing them.
