College student M.J. Chrisman releases his debut novel, The Legend of the Seer, while still attending the University of Central Missouri, Warrensburg, MO.

There are a number of morally-inspired fantasy novel series from famed authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Fresh to their ranks comes the creative mind of University of Central Missouri's student, M. J. Chrisman, with his new book The Remnant: The Legend of the Seer (published by WestBow Press).

The Legend of the Seer is the tale of a carpenter, William Ore, who is given a divine premonition from the All-Father. The vision foretells of the ancient Semion armies returning and once again throwing the world of Trinomia back into war. The only force that stands in the way of Simoria, the god-king of the Semion armies, from rising to supreme power is the Chosen Seer.

“I believe that The Legend of the Seer creates the perfect storm by combining the intense battles found in Paolini’s ‘Inheritance’ series, with introspective meaning of the ‘Chronicles of Narnia,’ and the passionate love from the ‘Twilight’ series,” says Chrisman. “Young adult readers will get the best of all three worlds – battles, meaning, and love – all in one story. “

On Sept. 15, 2012, Mr. Chrisman will be hosted at the Blue Springs Fall Fun Festival for a book signing at 7pm. Mr. Chrisman will also be attending the Longview Literary Festival, October 2012. For all other upcoming summer 2012 events, go to
