Présentation de l'éditeur :

A cauldron of descriptive imagery, surreal places and characters create an exciting and imaginative 'off-the-wall' fantasy trip. Books in the series: Peter: A Darkened Fairytale (story) Peter, Enchantment and Stardust (full poetry) Peter: The World - Short Poems & Tiny Thoughts (Vol 1) Surreal Peter - Short Poems & Tiny Thoughts (Vol 2) Peter: Crank's Time - Short Poems & Tiny Thoughts (Vol 3) *Boxsets available* A children's novel- PETER: A Darkened Fairytale Rough age range 11-13, fun for adults too! In a quiet sleepy place nestle a few tiny houses, a bridge, and a handful of shops. Unknown to Peter, on one particular morning - the morning of his tenth birthday –will reveal more than just the usual collection of presents. Stumbling into a secret place, he travels through many hidden worlds and embarks upon a fantastic journey. Hally the lifelongian, Arnica the maiden, Wind Sail the white witch and a beautiful elf called Slip will all guide him on his quest. Searching through the Purple Forest, Peter makes haste to rescue a friend, which proves more difficult than Peter could ever imagine. The gentle tale soon finds its way into some very dark places as the evil Cirinian and her followers try to thwart Peter’s progress. Guards, ghosts, spirits and vampirism add to the unknown dimensions that Peter encounters. A creation of surreal places and characters, Peter: A Darkened Fairytale is an exciting and imaginative fantasy trip from beginning to end. ________________________________________ A drawer is a drawer, and a door is a door, one way in and one way out. What… not sure? A time in space has now arrived for some readers passing by and travelling through in a blip of time, goes so quick, like this rhyme. The thoughts one thinks may not be real and sometimes they will make you squeal. Biting, scratching, tastes hang true, inside this story you’ll meet things new. Must be careful, for if you fall those evildoers will seize all. Taking bodies and minds of prey, trapped, entombed as darkness flays. If by chance you are done, chase the light chosen one. Staring from those eyes so bright, view things given with new sight. For all that see, avoid the dark, a new path is shown near the park. A secret there for all that be, if you’re brave enough, open me! ________________________________________ For all those imaginative souls A fascinating tale takes the reader on a true flight of fantasy into amazing far-off lands, dramatically expanding the imagination and touching the heart. An exploration of the senses is tantalised through the many unusual characters, while exploring alternate realities. A placid opening of the mystical realms should not be underestimated as they soon lead off and reach into some of the darkest corners of the mind. A gentle fairytale twists along its path into an unusual and disturbed adventure. ________________________________________

Biographie de l'auteur :

Living in a small village in Lancashire, England, the author has written a number of books based on the tale 'Peter'. In the 1990s, the author had twenty-one articles published, both nationally and internationally. After gaining an honours degree in Geosciences, doing post-graduate study in Occupational Health and Fitness, and earning a masters degree in Science Communication, he developed an interest for simple communication. A passion for writing again emerged, and combining various interests in fine art, museum exhibition display, biology, geology, poetry, and the mystical led to the story of Peter: A Darkened Fairytale. The author still retains a childlike vision of the world, which is conveyed throughout his books.

Description du livre AuthorHouse. Paperback. État : New. Paperback. 148 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.4in. x 0.6in.A fantasy adventure nothing short of the wonders of Narnia or Alice. 5 ChristophFischerBooks AMAZON TOP 500 REVIEWER - Multiple levels of understanding is a quality this book shares with classics like Alice in Wonderland and Wizard of Oz. 5 Oleg Medvedkov AMAZON TOP 500 REVIEWER - The depth and layering of the storyline is reminiscent of the works of C. S. Lewis. Richly descriptive - very classical in technique and flow, simply great writing. 5 Dennis Waller AMAZON TOP 500 REVIEWER A gentle fairytale twists along its path into an unusual and disturbed adventure. The childrens book Peter: A Darkened Fairytale is the first book of the Peter series The author has done an amazing job making us witness the world from a young boys perspective. This is a fantasy adventure nothing short of the wonders of Narnia or Alice. On a deeper level the book seems to be about finding your inner talents, your strengths and your faith in yourself. 5 ChristophFischerBooks AMAZON TOP 500 REVIEWER The childrens book Peter: A Darkened Fairytale is the first book of the Peter series The second book is Peter, Enchantment and Stardust - The Poems Additional tales and poems to follow Rough age range 11-13, fun for adults too! For adult readers, this is a trippy journey where preconceived stereotypes are put upside-down and sideways. Multiple levels of understanding is a quality this book shares with classics like Alice in Wonderland and Wizard of Oz. This is a well-written, extremely imaginative novel. 5 Oleg Medvedkov AMAZON TOP 500 REVIEWER For all those imaginative souls A fascinating tale takes the reader on a true flight of fantasy into amazing far-off lands, dramatically expanding the imagination and touching the heart. An exploration of the senses is tantalised through the many unusual characters, while exploring alternate realities. A placid opening of the mystical realms should not be underestimated as they soon lead off and reach into some of the darkest corners of the mind. Richly descriptive - The writing style is masterful in creating strong mental imagery. The depth and layering of the storyline is reminiscent of the works of C. S. Lewis. Another characteristic to the story is the sublime nature hinting at an allegory leaving you in contemplation of the deeper meaning to the story. It is written in such a way that would appeal to anyone, regardless of age. If words were paint, then I would say William OBrien uses them like Marc Chagall uses paint in conjuring feelings of awe. Very classical in technique and flow, simply great writing. 5 Dennis Waller AMAZON TOP 500 REVIEWER This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
