Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy Blog Tour — The Realms Thereunder

20 Feb

This week the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy Blog Tour is reviewing Ross Lawhead’s new book The Realms Thereunder.  If the name sounds familiar, Ross is the son of author Stephen Lawhead.  I will be posting a review of the book tomorrow.  But in the meantime, here is more info about the book and the author:

Ancient legend tells of an army of knights that will remain sleeping until the last days.

The knights are waking up.

A homeless man is stalked by a pale, wraithlike creature with a mouthful of needle-sharp teeth. Maimed animals and a host of suicides cluster around a mountain in Scotland. And deep beneath the cobbled streets of Oxford, a malicious hoard besieges a hidden city.

Freya Reynolds is a university student with a touch of OCD and an obsession with myth and folklore. Daniel Tully is living rough on the streets of Oxford, waging a secret war against an enemy only he can identify. Years ago, they found themselves in a world few know is real. They have since gone their separate ways and tried to put that adventure behind them.

But the mythical world is now bleeding into our reality-a dark spiritual evil that is manifesting itself in forgotten corners of the British Isles. Alex Simpson is a Scottish police officer who specializes in hunting mythical creatures. Together, they must confront the past, the present, and points beyond to defeat the ultimate threat to humanity.

Nothing they’ve seen so far prepares them for what awaits . . . in The Realms Thereunder.

Ross Lawhead comes from a literary household and has written since he could hold a crayon. He has collaborated with his father on a trilogy of speculative fiction, written and illustrated a graphic novel, and published two volumes of “awful” poetry in a series called “The Colour Papers.” He lives in Oxford and this is his first full-length novel.

    Wow, he writes awful poetry, I love him already! I enjoyed the book very much though I haven’t finished it yet.

    I’m here for the blog tour, and in accordance with something I wrote on my blog I am hiding a broken blue clothespin on your blog.
