Runic Awakening is part coming-of-age story and traditional hero's journey, but with a unique magic system that is simple to explain but has incredible depth. The book has political intrigue, murder, betrayal, love, and loss...and an unflinching view of how trauma, both physical and emotional, can change the course of one's life forever.
The Book has been self-published via Amazon and is available as eBook and Paperback - 410 Pages - released in October 2016.
About the Book
Torn from his home on Earth by an unknown power, Kyle finds himself stranded on a strange world. A world where magical engineers called Runics have created the Empire, the greatest civilization ever known.
Taken under the wing of a wealthy politician named Kalibar, Kyle is thrust into a dark conspiracy to overthrow the Empire...and murder Kalibar. Hunted by a sadistic undead overlord called the Dead Man, Kyle must learn to master the power of magical runes to keep Kalibar alive...and to save Ariana, a brave, mysterious girl whose powers the Dead Man plans to exploit.
If Kyle fails, the Empire will fall...and he'll be trapped in this strange world forever!
