~ Synopsis ~

Everyone thinks she’s crazy. And maybe she is. But Lauren Marriott knows her journey into Terratir happened. It was real, and she’s writing all down in frightening detail.
She has no patience for her brother Zach and his passion for stupid computer games until she finds a mysterious pendant in his room, pulsating with magical power. Lauren wants it, not realizing it’s a portal between this world and one of monsters, sorcerers, and dangerous quests.
Never in her wildest dreams could she have imagined what she’d find in the terrifying world of The Warlord—death at every turn, but also a love stronger than time itself.
In order to escape Terratir, Lauren, Zach, and their new found friends, must complete the impossible quest for the Eye of Tanúb, a relic of immense power, which The Warlord has already stolen for himself.

~ Excerpt ~

I stood on the threshold, looking out over a wide valley dotted with trees and boulders and even a couple of small buildings. Our teammates cheered, running to steal the other team’s flag. Zach followed them down a steep hill and over the verdant valley that separated the Guild’s home base from the Legion’s.

I could hear the enemy before I saw them, their battle howls penetrating through a cloud of fear that was slowly developing like a storm in my mind, chilling my blood. I watched Zach slow as soon as he saw them too, and then stop dead in his tracks.

My mouth went dry.

The Legion had giant werewolves with black chain mail on their team, saliva dripping from their exposed fangs. Zombie sorcerers, decked out in colorful magical robes, their skin dangling in clumps from their faces. Finally, the dark-skinned drows came screaming across the field, their daggers glinting in the sun.

I didn’t know we’d be fighting fierce monsters and demonic beings. Suddenly, the battlegrounds didn’t seem so exciting. I quickly hid behind a large rock, panting in fear, because the doors to the battlegrounds had shut and there was no way out. My teammates met up with the enemy in the center of the valley and battled hand to hand.

~ Review by Angela ~

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I truly enjoyed this story. It was written beautifully and the descriptions about the world they fall into was breathtaking and mesmerizing. I felt like I was actually in the story at times and I could visualize everything as described. I love the dynamic between the brother and sister. They were written very well. I loved all of the characters. I thought they were fully fleshed out and had a realistic quality to them. I loved all of the different types of creatures that live there and all of the different things that they could do. If I had one complaint about this book, it would be that I didn’t think there was enough description of why the Warlord was unbeatable. Why did he have so much power and how did he get it? Why could no one beat him? That would be my one pet peeve for this book. Also, the ending was heartbreaking because I felt what the characters were feeling. I can’t wait for the second book so that I can head back to Terratir. It is an amazing place and I miss it already. 4.5 books

~ About the Author ~

M.E. Cunningham came from a land, far, far away, and ended up on a little farm in northern Utah, living with numerous magical creatures: horses, chickens, dogs, cats, and a goat. Cunningham began writing quite by accident, the fall through the fabric of time dropped M.E. into the mysterious land of Terratir.
Terratir is not the first magical realm Cunningham has discovered, but it is the only one to be written about so far. Favorite topics include ghosts, monsters, dragons, and magic. Cunningham also likes TV, going to the movies, and camping in the mountains as long as there are no spiders, mosquitoes, or ticks.
Cunningham’s first book, Reluctant Guardian, was published in August 2013. While always in search of the strange and unexplainable, this author will write each story as it is discovered. Be on the look out!

  2. Thank you for having me on your blog and for your great review! You make a good point about the Warlord. Hmm. I wish someone would have pointed that out before it got published! LOL I just didn’t see it. Would you mind putting your review up in other forums? (amazon, smashwords or goodreads?)

    Thank you again!
