BOOK DESCRIPTION

The thunder caused by a lightning bolt streaking across the sky brought Yron out of his seat. Magic, he thought. In the opening line from his epic book, Jon Franklyn, author of the “The Inset,” Book 1 of his Fantasy Fiction series, sets the stage for the reader’s thorough enjoyment as they escape to the land of Carbynarah, a world created specifically for magic.

Carbynarah is a world at war with itself. Created so that all living things could use the magic that comes from Essence produced by the tree pictured on the cover. Shortly after the creation of Carbynarah, Natural magic users (magic that comes from the DNA of the individual) infested the world.

Over the years, Natural magic users have been unable to overthrow the magic created from the Essence on Carbynarah; but now, as magical essence is diminishing, the Natural magic users believe it is time to try again. The people of Carbynarah are on the verge of uniting, and the Natural magic users realize this may be their last chance…

These two magical factions, Essence Magic and Natural magic, have been at war with each other since the beginning of time, and this story is about the struggle for power that escalates as these two factions make their final bid for the very heart and soul of Carbynarah.

The book description gives a sneak preview; ‘Carbynarah is a world at war with itself.

Now, if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens, you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself! However, I will say it was well worth the read. It’s my first time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed.

Captivating and commendable, this work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of attention-grabbing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a truly spellbinding journey!

It’s one of those books that come along occasionally that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader.

If this volume is anything to go by, I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Jon Franklyn in the future. This has all the hallmarks of making a great series. I would definitely recommend this book and would love to see it adapted for the Silver Screen. I honestly think it would make a fantastic movie. A well deserved five stars.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Franklyn was born in the majestic San Juan Islands, in Washington State (ten miles east of Vancouver Island) surrounded by artists and writers. Inspired by the faculty at his local high school, including the cousin of Kurt Vonnegut, author of over 25 books and plays, Jon always dreamed of writing his own book. Graduating from Anacortes High School, Westminster College, and the American Institute of Applied Politics, Franklyn worked on several political campaigns before he started his foray into business.

His business career eventually led him back to writing. In 2010, Franklyn sat down at a computer, and 90 days later he had written the first draft of “The Inset.” Years later, with the encouragement of his wife, Julie, he picked up the keyboard and pursued his career in writing. Several books later, Jon contacted an editor, and today you are enjoying the fruits of that labor.
