Synopses & Reviews
From a brilliant and versatile new fantasy talent comes the first book in a breathtaking saga of dark magic and shining redemption.
Reality is unraveling in the dusty Colorado town of Castle City. Strange symbols are carved into storefronts, and ancient legends come to life. Saloonkeeper Travis Wilder is handed an ornate iron box and a mysterious mission. And in Denver, where dead men walk, ER doctor Grace Beckett is witness to a terrifying and inhuman scene of carnage. Theirs is a destiny shrouded in a coming darkness, a destiny that draws them into the otherworld of Eldh....
Eldh is a land of gods and monsters, myths and runecraft, conspiracy and blood. It is a world that has secretly coexisted beside ours for millennia. But now the boundary between worlds is crumbling in the face of a monstrous evil. And if Travis and Grace cannot save this strange land, then both worlds may pay the price.
In this epic fantasy--in which Earthly reality is transformed into something greater, and where even an ordinary person can become a hero--Travis Wilder isn't much of a pub owner, but he is about to become a pivotal figure in a rising battle against a darkness that could destroy everything he holds dear.
A strange rift in ordinary reality draws saloon owner Travis Wilder and ER doctor Grace Beckett into the otherworld of Eldh--a land of gods, monsters, and magic that is sorely in need of heroes.
