John Gidion is a nobody. He is a student almost finished with a Masters in Anthropology, driving down an isolated road, when suddenly a figure in a red cloak covered with symbols appears in the middle of the road ahead. He introduces himself as Ragan the Red..
When John gets out to protest the figure standing in the road, he is told: "Come with if you wish to live." After a few exchanges of "I am not going any where with you, Mister." John turns back to his car to see two gigantic, horrible, slavering Hell Hounds galloping down the road straight at him.
Ragan says: "Those are coming for you and if you don't want to be their next meal, come with me now!"
Following Ragan through the portal that appears behind him seems the safest choice and when, after a moment of dizziness, he steps out on the other side; he realizes that he is in a much different world.
Thus the adventure begins. There are: Swords, Sorcery, Magic, Elves, Dwarfs, Gnomes, Dragons, Griffons and many other differences from Earth. John's adventures change everything he thought he knew. He is cast as the Savior in a horrific battle between Good and Evil; between light and dark.
Some unique ideas and a fast moving presentation with a cast of characters you will love and hate.
The first of a series (Aren't' they all these days?) It will leave you panting for the next book.
It was incredibly easy for him to say.. Am driving my car - something happen - I pass out - next thing I know am in Middle Earth with magicians, elves, dwarves and I'm just OK with it? - this single fact kept me from buying the hole idea..
PS: Sorry my english, it's not my native languaje
