New Fantasy Novel Blends Norse Lore With Modern Settings to Create Unique World

Spencer Lincoln's debut novel Yaga Fantasy in Yggdrasil City is an eclectic mix of mythology, urban fiction, bildungsroman, romance, and adventure. 

I have never read a book like this. E. M. Forster wrote in Aspects of the Novel, "Extension. This is the idea that the novelist must hold. 

Must not be complete. Must not close the integer, but open." Spencer Lincoln embodies that idea in his novel, giving us a complex world that we can only glimpse. 

Reading this novel is like visiting a foreign country where we come with limited understanding of people, but have fallen in love with it and want to go to see it again and again.

The novel opens when Yaga and his two high schoolmates, George and Audield, defeat a lich that is a threat to their world. The prologue details this important scene around which everything is built.

Then, in Chapter 1, we move forward four years when Yaga is in college with his younger girlfriend Simone. 

We follow Yaga's daily activities, going to school in the autumn and shoveling sideways for money in the winter, using his first cellphone, and helping his girlfriend make potions. 

Yes, they attend a college that teaches magic — but this book is no Harry Potter story. Rather, it is a story of angst as Yaga constantly struggles with his past and whom he wants to keep in his presence.

The fight with Lig caused difficulties for George and Audilde while skyrocketing Yaga to momentary celebrity status. 

Even now, when people have largely forgotten Licht's attack, we are told that Yaga "looked like he could do no wrong. 

He had radiated His Majesty to the subatomic level." Burned and influenced generations. " But that opulence and the power it has acquired also have a negative effect on Yag. 

They have made him arrogant, resulting in a distance between him and his many friends. It has even abandoned its mother and sister.

Yaga is not a superhero story in Yggdrasil City. Thor can feel at home living in Yggdrasil, the great world tree of Norse mythology on which the city of the novel is built, but he has no place in this novel. This novel is an introspection at the cost of heroship.

It is also an excellent creation of a fantasy world. Yggdrasil is its own planet but seems like a familiar, yet alternative reality for a reader. 

There are a lot of humans on Yggdrasil, but there are also elves, sphinxes, vampires, and many other creatures. 

In truth, we only get a little glimpse of this complex society and how it functions, and readers want more of it. 

Many times the thirst for knowing the details of this complex and complicated world is not quenched. Here are the opening two paragraphs of Chapter 1 that introduces us to this unique place:

"Outside the proper time and space, there existed an infinite, flat ground. Its foundation was photo material before the first atom. 

It had ruins scattered across its surface and transplanted from old realities. Gathered those transplanted from former lives and sole Shaped. The real landmark, Yggdrasil, a plant from the World Tree.

"Even as a sprout, the tree overcame every natural growth and mortal creation and had never done it before. 

Before humans or at least binomial individuals, in this remnant of existence Was swept away, was a mountain. 

For imagery of relative time, the tree grew, and people built a city out of it and in. In areas beyond the shadows, they planted their crops and flags, and the blood of both Built a fence for the city. 

Under the leaves, sewage. There was before, and the smoking industry took up very little solid ground. 

From the roots of the city to the high branches of the city, people lived and served a living for all. Used to provide. 

Today, Yaga has rendered services as one of these cities. A drugstore, when he saw the first snowfall outside the window. "

A protagonist — now working as a drugstore clerk — you know that such contrasts are about to set the reader on a journey full of twists and turns. 

I guarantee that on every page of Yaga in Yggdrasil City you will be surprised at the complexities of this strange and magical world, a result of the imagination of Spencer Lincoln.

Native American Novel Gives New Life to Lake Superior's Dead

Craig A. Brockman's Dead of November is a supernatural thriller that will leave readers to pay homage to their Native American lore, haunting sensations, exotic locations, and lost love. 

Located in Sault Mary, Michigan, one of the oldest cities in the Midwest on the shores of Lake Superior, the novel is based on the city's historic heritage as a former gathering place for Native Americans in St. Mary's Rapids, the latter site. 

Fort Brady, and today home to Soo Lox and a Native American casino. All these places add to the story, blending the past into the present into a whirlpool of confusion about what is real, what is a legend, and what results when the two merge into a new reality.

The story begins when psychologist Adam Knowles, a practicing psychologist in Lower Michigan, is asked by his old colleague Ron to help Salute Sainte Marie at the clinic there.

Adam breaks out of the obligation, though he knows that this would mean confronting his difficult past one in which the love of his life sank, and one where he acquired a reputation in the city for helping people who would They believed that they were seeing ghosts. 

Little Adam knows that people are seeing ghosts again, which is why Ron wants him to return.

Ron arranges for Adam to live in an old inn where Maggie owns, Maggie of Scotland, who is a supernatural herself. Adam also has a friend, Cam, who reappears at this time in his life. 

Cam ends up kind of moving away from the first deep end, though Adam is not entirely clear why. Now Cam is clearly seeing hallucinations the clarity of Native American warriors from the past, among other things.

Adam realizes something horrific happens when Magawi from outside the area named James Graves is visited by a Potawatomi medicine man. 

Graves has created a following among some members of the local Ojibwa tribe, but he is also trying to harass. 

Maggie and Graves have a private meeting that makes Adam eager to learn about Graves' intentions. He hopes to get an answer when Grave asks him for a private meeting at the casino. 

Adam is surprised by what he learns at the meeting and finds himself in a semiconscious state that makes him suspect that he has been drugged. 

Fortunately, Gracie Bird, a young woman working at the casino, also suspects Graves and comes to Adam's rescue.

As the novel continues, the characters learn more about the pus of graves and ghostly vision that local residents are experiencing. 

He soon realizes that Graves is trying to uncover a mythological horror story that, if successful, will have dire consequences for everyone.

Brockman deliberately writes about all the elements he covers in this book, from psychiatry to local history and Ojibwa lore. 

He has worked with Lake Superior State University and the Indian Health Service at Sault Sainte Marie and has chosen himself for his subject.

Although the novel is full of supernaturalism, it never falls into the substandard or the group. Lake Superior's dead is not your average corpse but needs clarification. 

The characters are all well-developed, many of them having pastes that require treatment or that inform their actions in the novel.

I was most impressed by Breitman's use of Native American lore. He has clearly done his research on everything from Ojibwa history to local archeology and superstition. 

I learned a lot about Native culture from this book, all of it presented in a way that is always entertaining and relevant to the plot. 

Brockman's ability to blend the supernatural with reality is particularly impressive, leaving the reader's distrust never faltering as we move from a dangerous, climax moment into a tender discussion of forgiveness, all fed with a heightened sense. 

What we know as reality is simply a veil for a larger spiritual world that we still hardly understand.

November's Dead is the kind of book you can get so engrossed in that you have to stop to remind yourself that it's just a story, and when you close the book, the Superior Waves of Superior Lake bothers you. I Will keep doing I only wish that it was liked more.

Zombie Novel Sequel Shows Realities of Existing Under New World Order

The zombie novel sequel reflects the reality of existing under the new world order. Katie Wolton's After the World Flap has created exactly where Lucy (LD) Living Dead attacked the world.

The opening scene proves that Volante knows how to pack an actual punch in his story. Both of his zombie novels never had a dull moment. 

Even when his characters are not busy fighting zombies, they are captured on how to protect themselves from the Living Dead or other humans, which belongs to them.

In the first novel, readers see how Lacey and her friends run away from a hospital when the zombie epidemic begins. 

We saw them reaching for security, finding other survivors, and establishing a small community on a small campus. 

However, their existence requires them to move out of their premises to find food, clothing, and other necessities, and on such an enterprise while they are harvesting food from a nearby garden, Lucy, survived Some of the children end up in one of the children. 

Osteoarthritis condition where she is about to become LDS lunch.

I won't explain what happens in this opening scene, but I would say that adjusting to this new normal is not easy for any character, especially children. 

Volante provides us with a neverending rollercoaster ride through the perils of his zombie world; She also joins the characters' hymns and how they cope with their new normal. 

For example, she shows us that Kevin, one of the other children, copes with knowing that it is his birthday, and no one remembers it because his parents are dead. Luckily, Lacey and her partner come together to develop a plan to make her happy.

We also see many difficult meetings and divisions between the characters. In the first novel, the four nuns were rescued by Lacey and her friends and brought to the compound. 

The nuns have their own way of doing things that are not always compatible with the fact that Lacey, who is the leader, does things, so they experience this struggle. 

However, they all respect each other for their skills and try to work together. When the sisters discover that some of their fellow nuns have escaped to their Mother House and decide that they want to go there, it leads to some poignant farewell scenes and some real surprise later.

The biggest problem facing survivors are different from LD, as their community grows, new members are not always ready to follow the rules. 

As a result, when Lacey is challenged by her authority by another campus leader, her family group comes close to civil war. 

While the LDS remains clear, visible enemies, Lacey now realizes that her the greatest danger may be from her fellow survivors.

And yet, in the midst of this new normal, there are happy moments of celebration and falling in love. 

Despite all the horrors, the human soul continues, despite finding a way to adjust and survive when it is revealed that after death, humans will now turn into LD due to the virus.

To say more about the post-world Flip would be to give away too much. Suffice it to say that if you enjoy zombie novels, Volante books are well worth reading. 

They provide a more realistic picture of what life is for survivors than most zombie movies out there. 

All the thrills and chills are here, but so well-thought-out is a depiction of real-life for real people.
