Set in the “Realms of Fiction” where every book you have ever read, ever story that has ever been told, really exists The Book Ark is every reader’s dream. Throw into the mix an ancient war with the ethereal creatures from the “Realms of Fantasy” and the havoc our own “Realms of Fact” e-books are wreaking in this alternate dimension and it soon becomes clear that the human librarians, who are its self-appointed guardians, are extremely busy trying to keep peace and order. Then there are the Creators of the worlds within the Realms of Fictions, the authors who are revered as gods by their characters; authors, who find their souls come to rest in the Hallowed Halls after their passing, to live among their creations for eternity.
Jumping between the Realms of Fact, the Realms of Fiction, the Realms of Fantasy… not to mention all the other Realms out there, the backdrop is enormous and endless, as are the adventures our hero, Josh Ridley, will be embarking upon, as he discovers his family’s inescapable links with the realms, and the ensuing resurrection of the Scribing Wars of old…
Loved by girls and boys 90 to 9 – a book for anyone who can read.
“The air within hung heavy with story, it was steeped in enchantment – of course there were Realms of Fiction, how had Josh not realised it before? You could clearly feel its presence in places like this, places where books were gathered en masse, bookshops and libraries all felt the same; Josh had just never comprehended what a mystical air there was about them all, but now he knew, it was obvious – he felt the Realms of Fiction close by, almost within touching distance…”
