First and foremost I am a story teller. A weaver of tales you might say. You will find my story telling to cross many genres. I can't help it. An idea will pop into my head and then grow. I do not control the ideas genres, nor do I control the stories unfolding.
Why do I tell stories? Well mainly to shut the characters up. They do not stop whispering in my head until their story is told.
Oh, also you the reader. Yes, I have to admit that I tell stories for your entertainment. My characters depending on genre and what they are doing will try to make you laugh, cry, hold your breath, bring you to the front of your seat, and so on.
They want to entertain you. So on behalf of all the whispering people in my head I hope you enjoy the ride of what ever story you choose to read.

This was a fun book. I enjoy lighter fantasies that have a basis in our ordinary world here on Earth. Jack, Phillip, and Tracy are from Earth, and they don't know each other. We are given a look into their lives to see the ups and downs they faced. This is the kind of thing I enjoy because I liked the background information. Their lives on Earth (and how well or bad it was) did affect how they adjusted to being pulled into another realm.
While they are going about their lives, each one slips into Rashnar where each is given a special weapon they will use to fight the dark threat coming to Rashnar and its people. And if the teens don't stop this threat, it'll eventually take over the realm we live in, too.
I enjoyed this book. Like I said, it was a light read. The teens who didn't know each other developed a good friendship. They had a couple of good adventures where they learned something about the realm and each other. What I enjoyed the most was what this being from another realm who wanted to take over Rashnar wanted to do with the people on Rashnar. The threat was indeed a profound one.
The book does end on a huge cliff hanger, as the author says.
