CHRONICLES OF A HERO (series)
Prelude to a Hero
Book 1 (FREE)
Who doesn’t want to be noticed? Who doesn’t want to be special? Wendell is a seemingly normal teen who’s biggest goals are to get a job, buy a car and hopefully find a girlfriend. Unfortunately, the Universe has other plans for him. In the blink of an eye, his life…and world…vanish.
Untold power is placed in his hands and now he has an opportunity to become a legendary hero to millions of people.
That is…if he doesn’t get killed and eaten first.
With the help of Chuck, Dax and a spitfire gnome named Alhannah, Wendell P. Dipmier is thrust into circumstances he never could have imagined. Accepting the mantle of the Hero will force him to find the courage and rise to the challenges before him…or destroy those around him.
Wendell’s old life is about to end…in more ways than one.
Lost and alone, Wendell is left, for the first time, to his own design. Luckily, he befriends a young blacksmith’s son and together they push on to Til-Thorin barely escaping as the enemy ravages the land.
But Wendell feels a strange draw to the keep and it’ll require a sacrifice greater than he realizes to put this threat to rest.
In the blink of an eye, his life will change….forever.
The great wizard Morphiophelius refuses to give up on Wendell–even if he has to use forbidden magic. Now Dax, Alhannah and Lili must accompany Chuck into Clockworks City, home of 1.5 billion gnomes. But getting in is the easy part.
Now they must save Wendell’s life, survive rebel alliances, government manipulation and find the last Demoni Vankil seal…while winning the greatest competition on the planet.
Unfortunately Wendell has learned that Gnomes may LOOK small and sweet, but they can been equally viscous, competitive and cruel. It’s an lesson that could cost him his life…especially while fighting his way to the top of the Trench Wars charts.
What makes matters worse, is he was never prepared to uncover a nasty secret, hidden deep in the very bowls of Clockworks City itself.
A secret he’s not willing to keep…
Through a simple mishap of chance, Wendell’s true nature is revealed to more than a billion gnomes. Clockworks City is thrown into chaos as citizens panic and both Wendell and Dax are captured by the Centurions and labeled invaders. What’s worse, Dax is soon scheduled for execution. Wendell now has days to free himself, convert the city and save his friends…
His choices will ultimately bring the gnome population into the light…or plunge their fair city into the darkness.
Isn’t there supposed to be some kind of separation of Church and State? Then why do both seem to be working together to kill Wendell? The huge finale of Clockworks truths will unfold as wild events will push our hero to his limits…and beyond.
In the end, Wendell’s most deadly enemy will become his protector…and only captivity will provide freedom, allowing him to escape certain death.
Even wondered about the origin’s of Dax?
Now’s your chance =)
