Genre: Fantasy; YA


Step across the barrier and what will you find? A place of magic just out of sight? A pixie, a leprechaun, or even a sprite? What starts as a vacation turns into a mess. For Jonna, there's more at stake than meets the eye. Through pouring rain, misdirection, and a curious mind, Jonna crosses the barrier between our world and magic. Now forced to return across the barrier, Jonna battles Dark Mages, angry leprechauns, and a ruthless Minotaur, all in an effort to find his wife. To do this, he must locate the stolen Rune Blade and rescue the beautiful elvish princess. But what can a human do when faced with a world of magic?

About the Author:

The desire to write first over took me in middle school after reading 'The Red Planet' by Robert A. Heinlein. From that point on, I could not get enough. As the ideas filled my head, I had to find a way to let them out.

Whether it is scifi, fantasy, mystery, or poetry, you'll see all kinds from me. Relationships are the keys to all stories. As any good writer will tell you, "There are no new stories, only different details in the telling."

I hope you enjoy!

My Take on the Book:

The beginning of this book started off as light, whimsical and at times the story felt slightly disjointed; but as the book went on it got better; and I ended up enjoying it more than I thought I would. There’s a lot of mystical creatures as well as a lot of magic. This is primarily a fantasy book, and I feel that an older YA audience would enjoy this one if they like the fantasy genre. I ended up giving this book a four star rating and got a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Last Word:

It was nice reading another book from this author; though out of the two books that I’ve read, I definitely still love ‘Technology Can Kill You’ from ‘Ivan, Universal Space Tech’ series.
