The real life issues of Eric and Katie’s relationship, which resonate familiar with the reader, are quickly replaced with a poetry of surrealism, drawing the reader along with them into an ancient battle between the modern descendants of Roman and Celtic demi-gods.

A fresh, original telling of this intriguing theme in a contemporary setting, with enchanting characters you can feel for, fear for, and get caught up in.

While reading Brendan Myers’ first foray into fantasy/fiction, I found myself drawn to the whimsical, impulsive nature of Katie’s character, while nodding agreement to Eric’s level headed, common-sense approach to each situation this unlikely duo found themselves in, a testament to Myers’ writing skill and handling of character delineation.

Often, I found myself transported through the mists of time, through Katie’s eyes, and surrounded by ancient warriors, or painted  drummers by flickering firelight, that whet not only my appetite for this book, but my desire for this character.

Myers has painted gorgeous portrait, a landscape of emotion, mythology, and historical mysticism framed by his talented prose. His storytelling is a timeless tale of abstract realism and insatiable fantasy that leaves the reader lusting for the next page.

Brendan Myers, Ph.D., is the author of many critically-acclaimed nonfiction books and many articles on environmentalism, mythology, folklore, social and political values, and spirituality. They have been used by college professors, social activist groups, interfaith groups, Celtic cultural associations, and even humanist societies, in many countries around the world. “Fellwater” is his first novel.
Originally from a small town in Ontario Canada, Brendan earned his Ph.D in philosophy from NUI Galway (Ireland), and presently serves as a junior professor at CEGEP Heritage College, in Gatineau, Quebec.   Find him on the web at http://brendanmyers.net.
