A tale of two nations, good versus evil, tells the story of Kaér and Angharad, the main heroes, and their adventures through the Cantaén Mountains in search of The Shintae. The Shintae is a stone, but one that possesses almost unimaginable magical powers. How these are exploited depends ultimately on the will of the user. While one person would employ it as a weapon of war, another might utilize its power for building or healing. The Stone itself is neither good nor evil, the choice lies with the person who controls it. Therefore, with The Shintae in the possession of the enemy, Kaér and Angharad must retrieve it to ensure their own country’s survival.
They face the threat of the enemy leader Sartae, a man steeped in evil, all-out war and the forces of nature, which at times threaten their very existence. Only one nation can survive, but which one? Will the Cantaéns be able to take over the Maraéns? Will the Maraéns outwit the Cantaéns? Does Kaér recover? Do Angharad and Kaér meet up again?
These questions and many more will be answered in “The Shintae” (ISBN 1413783244, PublishAmerica) The fantasy based novel is about people and how they deal with the obstacles that life places in their way. “Kaér and Angharad never gave up; they found a way round their problems, their moments of self-doubt and carried on. Ultimately, they had to have belief in themselves and faith in their abilities to succeed,” explains Brian Hill, the author.
Reviewers are captivated with Hill’s ability to write. “The writing is full of creativity…take[ing] you on a vivid journey that allows the reader to get a feel of the landscape and surroundings,” says Lighthouse Literary Reviews. Rebecka Vigas with Reader Views claims “the action begins in the first two pages and is non-stop right to the end of the book.”
Brian Hill lives in Yorkshire, England. Besides writing, Brian’s interests include photography and strolling through The Dales. He is a leader of a local orchestra and composes music. “The Shintae” is available at any online bookstore.
