Book Description

Since the beginning of time, two sister worlds, Earth and Terah, have coexisted in different planes, surrounded by an immense field of energy. Long ago, magical and non-magical creatures lived together in harmony on both worlds, but as life on Earth evolved in the direction of science and technology, the use of magic deteriorated and soon magical creatures and sorcerers became the subject of myths and legends.

Meanwhile magic flourished on Terah, and as sorcerers became more powerful, they became more influential, and soon they were the heads of government. The Council of Sorcerers became the ruling body, with the chairman, the Master Sorcerer, the highest position on Terah, a position that comes with tremendous responsibility and formidable enemies.

When Master Sorcerer Badec realizes that his unborn son, Myron, will be his one and only heir, he protects the child by arranging for him to grow up on Earth. Myron is scheduled to be returned to Terah on his twenty-fifth birthday, at which time he’ll learn who he is and begin to study magic as well as everything else he’ll need to know in order to assume his role as Terah's next Master Sorcerer.

For twenty-three years, things go as planned, and Myron goes about his life as Kevin, a typical nerd, who is more comfortable with computers than with people. Then Badec becomes quite ill and the decision is made to bring his son home early.

One morning Kevin is an accountant living and working in Omaha, and the next he is in the middle of a field with six complete strangers, surrounded by huge stones and a forest. Before the day is out, Kevin learns that he is actually a sorcerer named Myron and that he’s next in line for the Master’s Chair. While he’s still reeling from that bit of information, he finds out that due to his father’s illness, he has a little less than one year to learn enough about sorcery to be able to defend his life and chair against sorcerers who have been practicing their craft longer than he’s been alive.

Welcome to Terah.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow Fantasy without the Dreaded Ghouls July 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been reading fantasy for 40 years and enjoy most even if the author is just getting the hang of writing. This is a nice pleasant venture into a world of fantasy and friendship. We do not have to endure ghouls, torture or rape. The dragons are well meaning and the characters have great values.I recommend this for any reader who is not looking for stress and tension in a novel. I'm not saying there it lacks intrigue rather that it does not glorify violence. Kudos to the Author.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Long and Fun Dual-World Fantasy January 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The Master's Chair is a dual-world story, and it is done quite well. I've read/watched a lot of media about our world matched up with a fantasy world, and The Master's Chair does this quite masterfully.

Length is definitely a talking point for this book. There is no question that at over 50+ chapters, and almost 250K words, this book will give a lot of bang for the buck. The author was quite generous with the amount of words shared. Admittedly though, I treat this as a double-edged sword. This book is a little outside the conventional in the word count department, and depending on how you feel about it, it may be a lot to digest in one book.

The characters themselves are very likeable, and watching the plot come together from both sides is intriguing. Finding out about an alternate life would be quite interesting, and the life discovered by the protagonist in this book would be fascinating.

The writing is pulled off in a good fashion. By the end you may wish you could also be pulled into the world of Terah. A literary adventure I'm glad I took.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised May 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked up this book for free one day because of the interesting premise. I don't expect much out of the free books that I pick up so finding one that was not only worth my time but a real pleasure to read was a big surprise. The story lived up to the premise and was able to keep me excited to find out what was going to happen next. I thought the characters were well developed and the world well explained. The only thing that kept me from giving it five stars was the author at times had that characters talk about what was going to happen and then entirely skip over the event which seems less interesting to me than having them skip the talking and actually attend the event. A great book that I thoroughly enjoyed and it would be a pity if more people didn't discover it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the next book... March 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book. It took me into another world for a while and kept me interested and entertained. I love books with magic, dragons, elves etc....with just enough danger, but not too disturbing. I was glad to see Kevin's character develop thoughout the story, from being uninteresting to becoming who he was born to be. I hope to be able to see what he accomplishes in the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book February 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great book I could hardly put it down. You won't regret reading it.
Was refreshing to be taken to the world of dragons and sorcerers. Sad when it ended.
Hope the author comes out with the second book SOON.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have May 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I chose this as a free book. Once I started reading it, I could not put it down. Mackenzie Morgan put a lot of detail into this book. It explained the world of Terah in so much detail, that if I were transported to there today, I would have no problems.
It is nice to see a main character who is not the end all of the story. The secondary characters help the story. It is also interesting to see how certain types of issues that are faced in the past and today are used in this story. The main example is slavery. As a short sentence is stated, this issue is still around today, just not as well known.
I am interested to see how this issue is going to be handled in the next book. I have placed it on my wishlist.
I am hoping that some of the story lines, like Kevin's new student and the posioning of his father, are going to be handled.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece April 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this to be a wonderful book. I thought the characters were well developed. While the book was longer than many I dreaded coming to the end. Fortunately Ms. Morgan has the beginnings of an inviting and anticipated series. The the second book is already published. If you like adventure, lots of middle earth type characters and an intriguing plot you will love this book. I know I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Chronicles of Terah". April 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thank you for "The Chronicles of Terah". They are the BEST read I have had in years. I can't wait for book 3. I have a kindle fire, but prefer to do my reading on my computer with the free app. I can make the text large enough to be comfortable. Thank you, for making them affordable to a 73 year old great grandma.
I have been reading fantasy since 3rd grade, when I discovered "MCELLIGOT'S POOL",by Dr.Seuss. I remember it, because I had to get special permission from my teacher; before the librarian would let me check it out! I became addicted! I read every thing I can get my hands on. Yours are among the best!
I live on a mountain side in Rogue River, Oregon, with my daughter ,3 four legged kids...2 bark and one purrrrrs.
