The first instalment of Waycaller is an invitation into a new and exciting world of fantasy inhabited by creatures both familiar and strange. You will lose yourself in Jack and Harriet's experiences in the magical world of Anwynn hidden behind the veil between two worlds. DJ McPhee is releasing one episode of Waycaller monthly through Amazon and in between there is a website with maps, back stories, pictures and more so you can totally immerse yourself in Jack and Harriet's adventure. McPhee writes believable characters with honesty and humour and his dialogue between Jack and Harriet in particular will be recognisable to anyone who ever had an older brother or younger sister. Written for young adult and above I thoroughly enjoyed this first instalment and can't wait until the next episode is available! As halfling Dorothea Butters would say "Eugene bless us all."
Waycaller: Episode 1: Out of the Dark (Waycaller Chronicles)
D.J. McPhee, author
Sixteen year old Jack Gordon thinks he’s going mad, just like his mother who believed in mythical beings like elves, dragons and monsters. He’s even started hearing voices. But then he and his little sister Harriett are attacked by a monster that is definitely real. Out of nowhere Jack and Harriett are magically transported to Anwynn, the veiled Otherworld of Celtic mythology. In Anwynn, Jack learns that elves, dragons and Druids are very real and that he is a Waycaller: he has the power to part the veil between the hidden realm of Anwynn and the human realm. Jack faces the challenges that come with being in an unfamiliar world that is as dangerous as it is magical. To survive, he must overcome his doubts and fears and learn to accept and use the power that resides within him. That might be a little easier if he weren't also struggling with his feelings for the mysterious Anarra, a part-elvish girl whose beauty is matched only by her skill with a sword. Combining traditional fantasy elements, a little humor and light romance, Waycaller is old-school fantasy for young adult readers. Waycaller is a fantasy novel in 7 episodes. This is episode 1.
