Everville - The fall of Brackenbone

 


Book blurb:

Two very different worlds, Easton Falls University and the magical realm

of Everville are in dire need of a hero. Owen Sage embarks on an epic

journey of monumental proportions to save these worlds all while fighting

to keep the world within himself intact. This quest is not for the faint

of heart nor is it for the weak of mind—only the bravest will succeed.

Discovering the well-kept secret of The Fourth Pillar of Truth is only

part of the feat. Owen will have to outwit the ever-powerful villain

Governor Jahal and overcome countless other challenges along the way.

Amongst all of the dragons, giants and grand chaos, will Owen's acquired

skills and wisdom be enough to save both worlds or will peril be the

ultimate fate of all?

 


Author Bio:


                                                                                  

 

Roy Huff is a research scientist, author, and teacher who rose from the

ashes of a family plagued by severe poverty and mental illness. After

graduating high school as Valedictorian a year early, he moved to Hawaii

at the age of seventeen with only $100 in his pocket to start a new life.

 

He has since gone on to earn five degrees in four different disciplines

spanning liberal arts, history, education, and geoscience. He has worked

on projects such as modeling volcanic emissions from the Kilauea Volcano

and algorithm development, research, and training on geostationary

satellites for NASA’s GOES-R Proving Ground. He has co-authored

peer-reviewed research in journals such as the Bulletin for the American

Meteorological Society, but his foray into creative writing did not occur

until the age of thirty-four when he began writing a creative paper for an

English class while working concurrently on his fourth and fifth degrees.

That paper later became the first chapter of the first book in his

Everville series and went on to be an Amazon number-one international

epic-fantasy bestseller. Subsequent books in the series have all become

international bestsellers as well as won awards for both cover art design

and content.

 

It was the success of his Everville series that garnered the attention and

management of the “literary lion”, Peter Miller, who has represented such

greats as Pulitzer Prize nominee, Ann Pearlman, the niece of renown Dr.

Martin Luther King Jr., Dr. Alveda King, and collaborated with film stars

such as Tom Hanks and Morgan Freeman.

 

Roy Huff remains an optimist. He enjoyed weathering the eye of Hurricane

Hugo at the age of twelve, skydiving, and marathon running but still

dreams of climbing Mt. Everest, circumnavigating the globe, traveling into

space, and discovering the secrets of the universe. His interests are

eclectic and range from the arts, extreme sports, economics, hard science,

movies, traveling, and the outdoors. He is committed to promoting

education, applied science, individuality, and creativity. He grew up on

the East Coast, but has lived in Hawaii for more than half his life where

he currently resides and writes his epic fantasy sagas.

My Review

 

This book pulls no punches. From the very beginning we are drawn into two parallel worlds, one of suburban American college and another of dragons and mythical beasts who live alongside their human counterparts. This is actually the fourth book in the series and in theory can be read as a standalone. However, I found that each chapter had new characters whose history I felt I should know and by the end of the first few chapters I seriously needed to take a break and catch my breath. I would have enjoyed the story more I’m sure if I’d read the series in order. Roy Huff shows fantastic imagination that will appeal to YA readers and others and if you love sci-fi then this series is one that will keep you hooked.
