Spotlight: Xannu - The Prophecy

This is the second in a series of spotlight articles on some of my books. Now that I have finally redesigned my official Author website, it's going to be much easier to point people to individual books I have published. Today the spotlight falls upon the first novel I ever wrote, back in 2003, Xannu - The Prophecy.

Although first published nearly ten years ago and published this year as an ebook, Xannu - The Prophecy continues to receive great reviews and calls for the later books in the series. So, what's the book about?

Genre: Young Adult Epic Fantasy (approx 125,000 words)
Xannu - The Prophecy (Book 1 of The Southern Lands series)

Would you wake up in a hot sweat if you lived your night’s dreams as a soldier battling un-earthly creatures, witnessing powerful magic and fighting to save your own life on a daily basis?

English schoolboy Terry West does. Frequently. After digging up some rune coins near a roman road, he has been living in another world inhabited by warlocks, seductresses, priests and prophecy. There Terry is a soldier, Teern Truthbringer, who has been tasked with finding the Xannu - 'he who will lead the people into deliverance.'

If only it wasn’t real; but it is. Very real. When it all began it was even enjoyable, but now Terry’s life is getting very complicated. Somehow he involved his best friend Joe and although it had seemed a good idea at the time, the consequences had been dire. Then there is Susan, the leggy sister of klutzy school-friend Brian. Why does she keep sending him messages?

Terry is struggling to balance the two lives he leads and every day he is losing his grip on reality just a little bit more. He’s been forced to kill enemies; his companion, the magical woman Maria, is scaring him half to death with her abilities; and his parents are on his back about his school work.

How will he balance the two lives he leads, solve two sets of problems, and understand the lessons he receives from both? Only time will tell. But time is something Terry doesn't have too much of, as everything is unfolding in ways he could never have imagined!

So, how much does it cost you ask? Currently it's a bargain at only $0.99 as an ebook. The full details are on my website. Why not jump over there and take a look. Just click the link HERE. Alternatively you can go to Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Smashwords and hunt it down. Also, remember, if you jump to Smashwords, you can read 20% of the book for FREE! That's not a bad deal!
