The Gossamer Threads of Fate

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
Trapped in time, it was the kind of thing that sounded like a bad joke. But for Monorth the truth of that cruel jest is all too real as he is now far from home, lost in spans forgotten history, and his only ally is the fuzzy nightmare who got him trapped there. Worse still the shadow of a Monster looms over that time-line that has consequences for Monorth in both the future and in his own past. More

About Shiva Winters

As a substitute of a profile I find hard to make in a reasonable amounts of words, I'd like to offer my philosophy of writing.

Entertainment.
In as few words as possible that is what my books are about.

I wrote them for myself, I personally enjoy re-reading them, I enjoy creating new chapters in on going themes, and I decided to publish them on the chance some few might enjoy them. I did not write them with the intent of publication, I did not publish them with dreams of avarice, and I only, truly hope that there are readers out there who enjoy them as much as I do.

I cannot and I will not promise my readers will like my hobby, agree with my views, or find any entertainment in what I have written. My books were not written for everyone, hence not everyone will like them.

I will do my best to offer the best 'product' to my readers as I am able. I can not yet promise a mistake free experience, but I am one who is never satisfied. Each time I re-read my own words I find changes I wish to make. And I will do my best to leave notice when new editions are available.

Because just as each work I offer to the public might never quite seem finished, the ideas behind them were a process of creation and re-creation. Each thing I bring into the world has been written and re-written time and time again, and they never seem perfect to me no matter how many times they are re-imagined.

Just because you have liked something I have written be it free or not, is not a reason why you will like what else is written. My writing is an organic process, many stories have nothing save a beginning or a future image in my head I wish to make a world in order to play out.

However from that moment after I begin all bets are off, the story can and will evolve from there and become whatever it and the characters may make of it. Just as I can not argue that I am like most any writer, nor can I see any reason in trying to be. I see no need to be 'like' anything, why should my books be 'like' any other book, and I see no reason for 'my books' to be 'like' my other books. Why should the next book be what worked for the one before? Why should I worry if my readers will have the same choices as me as to what 'would have been interesting'?

Do not buy my books without trying them, but also do not buy them if you are going to be disappointed if you don't get what you are expect.. Be it a thrilling plot-twisted action film in print, or a heartfelt romance, my books will not be exactly one thing. I make no promises in my writing but it can also be said I do not fear to follow the chanced inspiration, even if it might re-write the entire unborn ending of a story.

Review by: Tony on Oct. 10, 2012 :
Books about time travel are always strange and often difficult to understand. This one, thankfully, is pretty well laid out. I'm glad Monorth's story got cut into two books instead of one giant book or (worse) mixed into the normal time-line novels.

A few things that happen were what I was expecting from Monorth's time stuck in time, but there were plenty of the really cool unexpected twists I have come to find are a staple of the author. I also feel that The Gossamer Threads of Fate is an excellent addition to the series because it helps to slow things down. It's nice to be able to concentrate on just 1-2 points of view for most of the book.

Bottom line: If you've read and enjoyed the previous Salak'patan books then you will like this one. It was compelling enough that I read it straight through in one day.
