The World of Dorea

The World of Dorea.

An Epic Fantasy Story Demands An Epic Fantasy Map!

When I first determined to write this series I quickly recognized the need to see everything laid out before me. I started drawing that day, and thus the world of Dorea was born.

"The best epic fantasy I've enjoyed in a long, long time . . . a roller coaster of a read!"

     --Nicky Flowers, Indies Today
"Readers will find thoroughly engrossing Kibure's moral, ethical, and personal challenges as he navigates an increasingly dangerous world cognizant not only of his growing abilities, but the ultimate impact of his decisions."

"Fantasy fans will love this story! It is a must read!"

About the Author

Derrick Smythe has been fascinated with all things elvish, dwarvish, and magical since his days of running through the woods with sharpened sticks in defense of whatever fortification he and his brothers had built that summer. After consuming nearly every fantasy book he could find, he was driven to begin work on one of his own. When he isn't dreaming up new stories, he can be spotted hiking the Adirondack Mountains or traveling the world. He currently resides near his hometown in upstate New York with his enchanting wife, ethereal daughters, and his faithful-if-neurotic Australian Shepherd, Magnus.

Derrick's debut novel, 
The Other Magic (Dec 2019), has been an Amazon bestseller in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. The second book in his Passage to Dawn series titled, The Other Way, released in 2021 as a #1 Bestselling New Release. Smythe has also penned two stand-alone prequels, To Earn the Sash (2020), and another #1 bestselling New Release, To Wield a Plague (2022).

1.0 out of 5 stars damaged book
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on May 28, 2022
I'm sure the story itself will be great. But very dissapointed with condition of the book. Not sure if it was damaged in transit as there was a bottle also in package and neither of the items were individually wrapped. Although it's more likely the book was damaged before.
I always choose real books over digital versions. But never purchase damaged ones. I leave those in the shop.
This has made me rethink online shopping. It is probably my last book order. Sorry but I'm really dissapointed and this book will be read and then charity shopped.
