Product Description
Taerak's Void
(Book One of Fantastica)
A new series by multiple award winning author, M. R. Mathias

After finding a strange medallion and some maps with markings that no one in his village can understand, Braxton Bray decides to take it all to the Hall of Scholars in the kingdom's capital. But greed is everywhere. Braxton and a tough young female caravan guard named Nixy are forced to run for their lives, for someone else wants what Braxton found and is willing to go to great lengths to take it from him.

With a hefty, kingdom wide, bounty on their heads, not even the great wizards of the Sorcerious can help them. Left with nothing but each other, Braxton and Nixy have no choice but to get on a ship and go on an adventure that will take them places they would have otherwise never imagined. Elves, dwarves, giant gothicans, and trolls, treacherous forests on distant shores, love, death, terror, and magic all await...

Definitely, Middle Earth and Narnia, but only if like Dante with Virgil, Tolkien and Lewis could be my guides! :)

Sounds like a good time would be had by all!

I'm reading a book by Alastair Reynolds. I'm tempted to take a trip through his Revelation Space universe, but ultimately I would probably be too chicken. It's a dangerous place. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revelation_Space_universe

What a great question! I know that throughout my childhood, whenever my parents would shout of me to go to school, I'd wish I could avoid going by entering my wardrobe and finding Narnia, so for that reason I'd have to say, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe ;D

Robert Erwin Howard's HYBORIA, with sword in hand as a sullen eyed thief, reaver and slayer to tread the jewelled kingdoms under sandalled feet.

Now we're talking.   ;D

Narnia is one of my favorite journeys as well. Would loved to have sailed on the Dawn Treader and danced at Caer Paravel!

Younger me (a real nerd) would have said Xanth.

Older me (still a nerd) would say the OASIS from Ready Player One.

Has anyone played "Journey" (PS 3/4, thatgamecompany)? Very cool, very zen landscape designed to replicate the journey of a "life," as it were, that I wouldn't mind if it weren't for the cycle of never-ending rebirths.
