New Book Cover

Here is a first look at Beyond the Reflection's Edge, book #1 in my new series, Echoes from the Edge. It is unrelated to my other books, but it is a contemporary fantasy/mystery blend for the same age group.

The basic plot: Nathan Shepherd, sixteen years old, loses his parents as the result of a double murder. In order to be safe from the murderers, Nathan goes to live with a new family, his father’s old college buddy and his teenage daughter, Kelly.

A strange mirror in Nathan’s bedroom sometimes shows images that aren’t in front of it, including past events, unfamiliar scenes, and people who are supposed to be dead. Nathan obtains his mother’s violin, which plays beautiful music along with voices that only Kelly can hear. Nathan also inherits his father’s camera, which takes photos of people and places that aren’t there ... or at least they don't seem to be there.

These odd devices launch Nathan and Kelly on an exciting journey through multiple dimensions as they track down the mysteries surrounding the deaths of Nathan’s parents. They soon learn that the cosmic fabric that separates the dimensions is crumbling, leading to a potential catastrophic event called interfinity. As they try to prevent this end-of-the-worlds disaster, their own efforts add to the interdimensional deterioration, forcing them to make one life-and-death choice after another.

I'm very excited about this series. Pre-publication readers are giving me great reviews. Look for it to come out in May of 2008. I will give updates on my blog and newsletter as the time gets closer.

This sounds so amazing. If done properly I could be riveted. And I am only reading your synopsis of it. Can't wait.

I can't wait. Your synopsis makes it sound like a blend of Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys and Through the looking Glass. I'm intrigued.

I'm not quite sure yet. I haven't read any part of it yet and it is definately not the usuall thing I read; however, it has to be at least half good because it's written by Bryan, but I'm still not sure.
