Who in their right mind would want us! What will happen when they realize that we can do Magic. Will they understand! Why are we even here! Was I abandoned? Why would we be abandoned with both weapons and supplies? Why can’t we remember anything? I love Thor with all my being as he loves me, but I need the love of a family. They keep coming after us, we are only helping people that need help and yet we are chased all over the forest. What will they do with us if they catch us? The one thing we do know, they must not take us alive! "The wolves covered the distance in only two great bounds and placed themselves between the captives and the youths. Their ferocious growls, snarls and snapping of jaws caused all the youths to jump back. I released my first shaft. It struck Anthony in the elbow, splitting the elbow joint lengthways in two. He screamed as his knife went spinning to the ground. From behind him, Thor tore at the back of his right knee, ripping through trousers, tendons, muscle and sinew with a single savage bite. ... They tried to run, but outrunning arrows is a trifle difficult." "Amelia said, “That was awesome, when you all came out of the forest, well, it was like a scene from a really good movie, better even. It was awe inspiring.” Chrissy was giving the Pack Leader a big hug telling him how brave and noble he and his pack were. Amelia joined in as well, then both girls moved to Thor and hugged and patted him as well. The Pack Leader looked at me and thought, “I like these two puppies. They are very polite and they have honour. I must be getting used to these cuddles, they are pleasurable.” I said to the girls, “I hope you realise that you can’t walk up to any wolf and give them this level of trust. If you try to hug any other wolf, you would forfeit your life.”
‘Wolves Den Part 1 in the series ‘THE KEEPER OF BALANCE - Earth.’ SYNOPSIS This is a psychological coming of age drama set in the near future in England. It sits nicely in the fantasy genre. The story centers on a gifted twelve year old boy named Tez and Thor his canine protector. They have moral fortitude and a resilient consciousness that initially characterizes them as self sufficient individuals. Their native intelligence soon forces Tez to the realization that the one element sadly missing from his life is the love of a family. In spite of an ever increasing body count that they manage to amass, two girls, Amelia and Chrissy support their social development and ultimately help provide the family setting they need. The book contains both humorous and serious discussion on western society as seen by someone not raised from within. A few parts are educational. The psychological aspects are real and well researched. They form the basis for the emotive passages that tug at one’s heart strings. The romance that develops between two of the characters is both stirring and socially responsible. The book finishes on a high note but leaves a great deal of questions unanswered. These are answered in book two 'The Princes Of Ressalon'. This book has an abundance of action that centers on the concept of social justice in its true sense as opposed to the currently impaired politically correct form. The central truism is that there are repercussions for one’s actions. The surrounding society sees Tez as a hero while society’s hierarchy see Tez as a nuisance to be dealt with. Those close to Tez believe he uses magic while Tez and Thor see it as simply, ‘doing things the other way’. The concept of magic is dealt with as a powerful and complex science with analogies to computer science. The action sequences initially involve the baser elements of society and later include assistance from rank and file police and the SAS who are depicted as viable heroes in their own right. Tez is injured physically and emotionally on several occasions and as such is depicted as a real child as opposed to a one-dimensional superhero. These situations allow for the character’s growth and as a conduit to explain the concepts of magic. This series is aimed at teenagers through to adults. It is an unusual coming of age story having elements of fantasy, action, mystery, death and love in all of its forms.
About the author
Who am I? I am a generalist rather than a specialist and as such I enjoy many things. I dislike political correctness unless in the context of a good joke. I am proudly Australian. What is my life like? Death ruled my childhood. I lost my mother when I was 3, Father at 11 and Foster Father at 13. It was difficult. I spent some time in an orphanage run by penguins. My child self has seen violence and death at first hand. At 14 I promised myself that no-one would ever touch me again and due to many years training in Martial Arts I have managed to keep this promise. While I enjoy this trait, I am also opposed to violence and am pleased that I have never been forced to damage another human being. I have three wonderful children, all boys. I am divorced and share the raising of my kids 50/50 since all children need both parents. I have a vision impairment that is simply part of me. I’m not a snappy dresser primarily because fashion is scientifically estranged and emotionally subjective. The only rule I have for fashion is that I don’t wear green. We lived in an old Church that I converted to a home. That explains the loss of 5+ years of my free time. I put the bar where the altar used to be to keep the spirits happy. A flood destroyed it just in time for Christmas 2010. We now live in suburbia. I am now a qualified counselor specializing in children’s issues, primarily dealing with conceptual thinkers. Have I been previously published? Yes! I had several articles published in the technical press. Australian Hi-Fi and Silicon Chip Magazines come to mind.
