About the Author:

Frank P. Ryan is a bestselling author of fantasy and thrillers, as well as a number of highly acclaimed science and diet books; his work has been translated into a dozen languages. His YA/adult crossover fantasy novels The Snowmelt River, The Tower of Bones, The Sword of Feimhin and Return to Arinn make up the THREE POWERS QUARTET, all published by Jo Fletcher Books. His other fiction includes the thrillers Goodbye Baby Blue and Tiger Tiger; he is also the author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed science books The Eskimo Diet (co-authored with Dr Reg Saynor), The Greatest Story Never Told (The Forgotten Plague in the US), about the search for the cure for TB, Virus X, Darwin's Blind Spot (chosen book of the year for the entrepreneur Charlie Munger), Virolution, Metamorphosis and most recently The Mysterious World of the Human Genome. Frank Ryan was born in Limerick City in Ireland, but was brought up in Clonmel, in the shadow of Mount Slievenamon, the inspiration for The Snowmelt River, until moving to Bolton in Lancashire. After a near-death accident he switched from engineering to medicine, but in his first years at med school he was taken by the writing bug and started his first novel.

Review:

The author has imagined a brooding sorcerous world filled with dark romantic landscapes and shivering cold, and haunted by dense blue-black shadows * Thomas Cotteril * It is the detail with which the author writes that is so immersive. There are moments of real fear in the book, when the characters seem to be in real danger. Strong . . . the next entry can't come soon enough * Starburst * The author's knack for description and character development kept my interest. The descriptions are rich and I was absorbed by the otherworldly descriptions of this book - so different and yet believable. I would love to see [this] in film * Writers Write * The final chapter in the epic fantasy The Three Powers is set between three worlds; Earth, the magical land of Tir and the mysterious in-between world of Dromenon. Mesmerising in its complexity, Ryan cleverly weaves together strands of a story that begin with the Tyrant's war in a London devastated and chaotic * Believer on The Return Of The Arinn * Excellent book - simply excellent. And an unexpected end to an amazing saga. So many twists and turns leading to an ultimate final confrontation between good and evil, an unexpected end for many beloved characters and a timely demise for those who brought darkness with them. An excellent conclusion to one of the most exciting and accurate sagas I have read in a very long time * Niamh Hunter on The Return Of The Arinn * Ryan uses non-stop action and mature themes to draw us in. He doesn't stay in the magical world; he also takes a gritty look at what might happen if the darker powers of the magical setting were to invade our own world. He has a style that is easy to read and has created very interesting characters and races * Fantasy Book Review on The Return Of The Arinn *
