About this title


Book by Michael A. Heald

From the Publisher:

&quot;Thought-provoking writing for teenager--a welcome alternative to the lure of computer games.&quot; G.P. Taylor, internationally best-selling author of <i>Shadowmancer</i> and the <i>Mariah Mundi</i> series.<br /><p> </p><p>&quot;Michael A. Heald has created a fresh world with engaging characters and an absorbing mythos. His crisp narrative draws the reader irresistibly along through a richly satisfying tale. A Rumor of Dragons is the best fantasy I've read since Orson Scott Card's Tales of <i>Alvin Maker</i>, and I greedily look forward to the next volumes of Michael A. Heald's Chronicles of Ganus&quot; - C.V. Manning, author of <i>Cyon: Veritas</i><br /></p><p> </p><p>&quot;Set aside a place on your bookshelf for <i>A Rumor of Dragons</i>, right next to <i>Lord of the Rings</i> and <i>A Wizard of Earthsea</i>.&quot; Caprice Hokstad, author of <i>The Duke's Handmaid</i> and <i>Nor Iron Bars a Cage</i>.<br /></p><p> </p><p>&quot;There is a gritty bleakness to this world; and the characters are not the glossy, superhuman heroes of traditional fantasy, but flawed and insecure souls, with all the issues and baggage we have and more. The reader is taken chapter to chapter, switching back and forth from various character stories, as they slowly wend their way towards one another. This story ingeniously blends the forces of physics with metaphysics; magic and sorcery to tell the tale of Ganus and its people. It was artfully done . . . . I am giving this book the full five medallions for bringing such a gripping, and unique perspective to the Fantasy Genre.&quot; Stephanie Johanesen, Odyssey Reviews<br /></p><p> </p><p>&quot;<i>A Rumor of Dragons</i> is an exceptional fantasy novel which I found to be most enjoyable. It is quite an inspirational story with a unique hero. Michael Heald is a consummate writer with a creative imagination, and hopefully, one day his name will be included along with Robert Jordan, Jonathan Stroud, and Christopher Paolini as a contemporary fantasy writer.&quot; Kaye Trout's Book Reviews<br /></p><p> </p><p>&quot;This novel is the first in an addictive series, and I will be sure to read the next book as I know it will have even more delicious twists. 5 Hearts.&quot; Crystal Adkins, &quot;Book Reviews by Crystal&quot;<br /></p><p> </p><p>&quot;Excellent fantasy. . . . The author has also created an unusual setting of a world that does not spin and opposing forces that hide behind other opposing forces. There are many twists and turns. This has the elements of most great fantasies. We rated it five hearts.&quot; Heartland Reviews<br /></p><p> </p><p>&quot;I loved this novel; it was absolutely spell-binding from beginning to end, and I cannot wait to read the next installment in <i>The Chronicles of Ganus</i>. Heald has a true gift with words, creating drama and mystery at every turn. 5 Stars.&quot; Amber, YA Book Central<br /></p><p> </p><p>&quot;This volume is a fast, easy read . . . . the world-building and story-telling are good, so this is recommended for readers who like stories about dragons.</p>
