Today’s entry on the blog will be one for literature. And this creative genius is one from the Land Down Under – you better run, you better take cover…whoops, got carried away there.
The person I’m referring to is Aaron McGowan, creator of the Elpis series. McGowan hails from Melbourne, Australia. Writing in the genre of fantasy, he has written books available on Lulu, Amazon and other sites too.
I’ll let Mr. McGowan’s text speak for itself, courtesy of the Amazon promotional copy:
The Potential for Unlimited Power is Revealed. . . In a world where magical abilities are utilized through the Nexi Stones, there is one stone that stands high above the rest, shrouded in myth and mystery-the Elpis. Broken into four fragments centuries in the past, the Elpis waits to be pieced back together, and to grant its user godlike powers that could reshape the world forever. Raised in a quiet town, Terico but life ambitions change dramatically, however, when his village is attacked and everything he holds dear is taken away from him. Delkol, leader of the feared Brotherhood and ruler of the aggressive Shire Kingdom, seeks the pieces of the Elpis, and is willing to burn Terico’s village to the ground in order to find one. When the terror has passed and Terico stands at the greatest crossroads in his life, there is only one thing on his mind-one goal that encompasses his very existence. Revenge.
Of course, you don’t have to take my word for it that McGowan is a genius. Check out his Amazon ratings for this book – Elpis is rated 4.5 out of 5 stars with an impressive total of SIXTEEN reviews backing it up! On Goodreads, all of McGowan’s books have an average rating of 4.42 out of 5!
If that is not genius, then I don’t know what is. Well…what are you waiting for? Go check out Aaron McGowan’s books today!
