Don't miss the start of something big! Described as Original and Captivating The fantastic, world spanning, epic urban fantasy series "Ancient Enemy" begins with this newly revised and edited version of "The Dryad's Kiss." We are introduced to Ian Finn Morgenstern, a man with a knack for finding things, before he found himself on the front lines of a war against humanity begun millennia ago. A time when his problems were human-sized and he thought passing English was his biggest challenge. ----- My name is Ian Finn Morgenstern, Finn to my friends. The spring of my 18th birthday, I found and then helped dig up a Native American burial mound. Unfortunately for everyone involved, this particular mound guarded secrets best left for dead. I pulled three things of note from that mound: a bear totem, a wooden spearhead, and the horrendous skull of a not-quite-dead monster. What followed was a summer of magic, madness, murder, and beautiful women. When put that way, it sounds sort of adventurous and fun, but it wasn't. Especially for someone who is more hobbit than ranger. In my well-informed opinion, adventures are best read from the comfort of ones bed. If only I had believed the mound's ghostly guardian was real, or dropped that twisted spearhead when it started singing to me, or let my dad cut down my beloved oak, things would be different. I'd probably still be a virgin, but I'd be a blissfully ignorant virgin, and you wouldn't have anything to read before bed tonight. Sorry, but I'd be okay with that. What Amazon reviewers are saying: This was a really fascinating and well written book. (Martha Bryce) The Dryad's Kiss was an awesome urban fantasy. I really enjoyed reading this one and I literally cannot get it out of my head...This story will leave you cheering for Finn, gasping at what happens, and scratching your head trying to figure out what side Spring is on. But I know this novel will definitely leave you satisfied and craving more all at the same time. (Amy@Read to My Heart's Content) The character development is awesome! I recommend this book to anyone looking for an original and captivating story (Gin) A well written fantasy story that adeptly combines the elements of fantasy, adventure, and a teen coming of age story into a good fantasy story. (mochalove) Is it worth the read and time, absolutely! Would you want to find out what happens to Finn in the next book, absolutely! (Lourdes Wood)
