Vampires, Werewolves, Mages, astonishing action, and page-turning suspense are woven into this modern-day dark fantasy saga.
The Gloom Rising and Reality Falling Collection features both Book One and Two of the Book Wielder Saga, and has been rewritten, and re-edited to feature new and previously omitted content.
Winston Reynolds’ ordinary life is turned upside-down when he discovers that he is in fact a Book Wielder. He develops a wide array of powers, including the ability to cross into a dangerous magical realm called the Gloom. The dismal dimension is full of horrors, deadly creatures, and eerie evil denizens. However, the Gloom also hosts an immense variety of Alchemical reagents that can be used to make potent potions and mind-blowing drugs.
In the world of Mydia, Supernatural gangs consisting of cunning Vampires, ferocious Werewolves, powerful Mages, and regular people ‘in the know’, vie for power in the shadows, and trade their magically imbued narcotics to the unsuspecting human populace. It is one of these gangs that Winston keenly chooses to lend his powers to. Eagerly abandoning his previous dull and mediocre life, he descends into a world of wealth, lustful debauchery, power, and violence. However, forces beyond Winston’s control lurk in the background, and seek to guide or manipulate his unique abilities and insatiable ambition.
All the while Alice Eve, the stern, pious, and unflinching Inquisitor General, fights to end corruption, and bring about a fair and just world. Alice is prepared to fight tooth and nail to correct the many wrongs in her world, but is she ready to face the hidden Supernatural threat, and Winston Reynolds’ inhuman allies? Is she ready to face the reality-shattering truth and wonder that a strange, shape-changing book offers?
Fate has plans for the Book Wielders… but so do many others.
