Breath (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Don’t flinch- see the truth.

A village bent by the tyranny of an evil Overlord rallies behind the single, strong-willed man who can save them from destruction. Ralic, the son of Ralic the 11th and chosen liberator of his people, is a guy who sees himself as perfect, but will find in the coming day that he still has much to learn. Armed with the Sword of Destiny, the only weapon powerful enough to destroy the evil Overlord, Ralic seeks out a dark castle tucked away in the furthest recesses of a forbidden forest.

A battle of brawn and wits ensues, reality descending into chaos and madness for Ralic, his wife, and the people of the island. When an identical, fake hero appears, Ralic’s relationships and life are put to risk as it’s up to his newly-wed wife to discover the Overlords’ secret and save her love. Nothing is as it appears, and as years of treachery are set ablaze, the villagers come to see that there’s much less they can hold onto for support in the face of such an incredible threat. Soon, the people learn the value of holding fast to that which is true, honest, and sacred, something too humble to be praised, but too powerful to be ignored.

In this fun, empowering short story, discover the real meaning behind ‘The pen is mightier than the sword.’ Explore a blend of science fiction and fantasy, weaved through with both thrill and action.

A little preview.

Every Saturday morning at nine o'clock, all of the kids in the neighborhood would gather at Mr. Henry's house, after Mr. Henry had finished his coffee. This was because Mr. Henry was always a great storyteller; he told the best stories. Mr. Henry always wore a sailor’s hat with a bright red shirt and baggy brown pants. He was really funny too. His house was very colorful; white with red and green trim with shutters of pink that made it the prettiest house of them all.

As we all sat down around Mr. Henry on his front porch, one of the kids said, “Mr. Henry, what story are you going to tell us today?”

Mr. Henry replied, “I think I'll tell the one about the man who wanted to buy some flowers for his daughter.”
