Few Are Chosen, K’Barthan Trilogy: Part 1

Few Are Chosen, November 2011 cover

The Pan of Hamgee isn’t paranoid. There must be some people in K’Barth who aren’t out to get him. Unfortunately, right now, he’s not sure where they are.

His family are dead, and his existence is treason. To survive he does the only thing he can to survive – getaway driving. As if being on the run isn’t bad enough, he finds a magic thimble. He decides to keep it which can only mean trouble. Sure enough, it does. He unwittingly sets himself on a collision course with Lord Vernon, K’Barth’s despot ruler.

Unwillingly, The Pan is forced to make choices and stand up for his beliefs. It’s a challenge, since previously he had no beliefs he was aware of. Faced with a stark moral dilemma, he realises his new found integrity might even stick… if he can stop running.

Independent Reviewers Say…

I loved this book. It’s a perfect combination of action, superb characterisation and delightful tongue-in-cheek humour… The story is sleek, well-paced and builds to a fine conclusion that leaves you certain that you want to read the next instalment. It never stops moving, but gives you breathing spaces when you need them, and it’s not like any other story I’ve ever read. Yes, it’s truly unique.‘ – Awesome Indies

Recommended, especially to fans of fantasy, but also to those who might usually avoid it.’BCF reviews

I found I was turning pages as fast as I could… there wasn’t a single character that didn’t engage me in some way‘ – Grace Krispy Blogspot

Filled with a host of brilliant characters from various wonderfully weird races, none of the different personalities introduced fail to fascinate.‘ – The Bookbag

The Wrong Stuff, K’Barthan Trilogy: Part 2

Cover for The Wrong Stuff

The Pan of Hamgee is not a natural knight in shining armour. Yet he has escaped from police custody in K’Barth, switched realities and foiled Lord Vernon’s attempt to kidnap Ruth, the Chosen One from the Festival Hall. Pretty good, he thinks.

However, Ruth thinks otherwise. Being pursued by Lord Vernon is bad enough. Now, thanks to The Pan, she’s on the run. They are both alive, of course, but with Lord Vernon on their tail neither of them can be sure how long for.

To save her life The Pan must introduce Ruth, the woman of his dreams, to the person prophesied to be the man of hers. And he knows he must do it fast. Before Lord Vernon finds her. But the gentleman in question is in hiding and no-one knows where. Only The Pan can find him. If he can bring himself to unite them.

Independent Reviewers Say…

‘ I can thoroughly recommend this book which combines a wry, sarcastic humour and some really deep insights into human nature (even though technically all the characters aren’t human!) If you love fantasy, this series is a must.’ – Ignite – Amazon top 500 Reviewer

‘The Pan of Hamgee is one of my favourite characters of all time…. The story is tight and unpredictable and the pacing excellent. The characterisation is superb and the humour delightful.’ – Awesome Indies

Coming soon… One Man: No Plan, K’Barthan Trilogy: Part 3.

CoverOneManNoPlanConfused ex outlaw, pardoned for all misdemeanours, seeks answers…

The Pan of Hamgee has a chance to go straight, but it’s been so long that he’s almost forgotten how. With a death warrant over his head he is released, given a State sponsored business, and a year’s amnesty for all misdemeanours while he adjusts.

He doesn’t have a year, though. In only five days Lord Vernon gains total power. Unless The Pan can stop him, K’Barth is doomed. The future hangs by a thread, and the only person who can fix it is The Pan: a man without a plan.

Cornered Hamgeean, with nowhere left to run, seeks miracle…

The time has finally come when The Pan must stand up and be counted. He must face his demons and rectify the chaos he has caused. He can stop Lord Vernon, and he’s going to, but the timing is crucial.

To succeed he has to stay alive, a possibility if he keeps his head down and maintains a low profile. But that’s not an easy task for The Pan.
