Secrets of the Sealed Forest
Airships and magic spells that create fire and slow time don’t exist in the real world. That was what Joseph Erift always believed for seventeen years. They were just things you found in fantasy stories and video games. Or so he thought.
After winning an invitation to an exclusive game event and traveling halfway across the globe, Joseph is pushed on a journey by a coffee addicted professor that will forever change his life.
Now, to stop a vengeful young man from awakening an ancient power, he’ll have to battle stone chimeras in flooded ruins, avoid dancing trees in an ancient forest, and learn to control the magic within him. It’s the adventure Joseph always dreamed of, but now he worries he won’t live to tell the story.
Erift’s Journeys is an contemporary fantasy for ages 10+ with very mild language and fantasy violence. It features action and adventure, magic, and coming of age themes. It follows a young protagonist overcoming incredible odds while meeting new friends during an unexpected trip that leads to a long road of self-discovery.
It’s heavily inspired by fantasy video games such as Final Fantasy and is especially meant for middle grade audiences to ease them into slightly more mature work without throwing them headfirst into full adult themes. It’s an epic adventure for everyone.
