The first book in the series, The Fantastic Adventures of Alex Shrine, aimed at the 10 –13 age-group to young adult and all science fiction and fantasy buffs.
After a mind boggling journey to a parallel dimension, Alex meets and befriends a race he calls the Realm People who live without the use of modern gadgetry.
They rely on some amazing and, seemingly, magical powders.
The powders also give the Realm People an incredible ability to travel through time and to other dimensions.
The source of the powders is a pyramid of mysterious crystals created by a long dead scientist; Shanglo.
Shanglo, also known as the great magician, had a vision of a pollution free world without the trappings, as far as possible, of modern technology and created the crystals for that purpose. The crystals have immense power and so does anyone who controls them.
Shanglo realized this and thankfully had the opportunity to hide them at the edge of a distant galaxy under the guardianship of a race he called 'The Sentinels.'.
All is not well however; hundreds of years later the Realm People are at war with ones called the Sand Dwellers who have been forced to assist an evil renegade in an attempt to find the mysterious crystals.
Alex is caught up in a battle with the Sand Dwellers as he tries to help his friends.
His adventure takes him high in the air, deep underground and eventually on a hair raising journey to an outpost at the very edge of the cosmos; the home of The Sentinels.
At the end of his adventure Alex discovers he is developing unusual abilities including telepathy…..but that's another story in.....'Alex and the Seventh Realm.'
1. Drum grasped the amulet between the thumb and first finger of his right hand and began to rub it gently. ‘I must warn you this can be quite a fearful experience, but please trust me.’
Alex and the others watched apprehensively in silence.
All at once a faint glow started to emanate from the amulet. Shirrac kept a respectable distance away as the glow, a bright golden yellow, became stronger and stronger.
‘Link hands,’ commanded Drum.
Suddenly, without any warning whatsoever, their entire surroundings vanished. The four of them were plunged into an inky blackness. The only way each knew that the others were still there was by the tightening grip of each of their hands upon his neighbour. It was the grip of fear.
2. Seggim stroked his chin thoughtfully. 'As you also know, the crystals are self replicating and if one is removed from the pyramid another takes its place in a very short time...I still don't know how he achieved that. It's quite remarkable.'
'Magic perhaps,' Alex heard himself interrupt, without really intending to.
