His life has been riddled with challenges and now it is author Alex Gordon’s turn to challenge the rules set by famous fantasy genre authors. Announcing his debut in the world of literature, Gordon unveils the compelling story of “Emerald” (published by Xlibris AU) the dragon.

One thousand years ago, one million humans and dragons are camped in what is known as the Valley of Tears. They wake one morning with their love turned to hate and left for battle with wife, child, and mother, pleading for them to stop fighting and marching with sword and axe in hand.

One thousand years after, a young man, a vagabond, is lying about in the world somewhere, resting from a fruitless search. The young man is wounded. Where in the world does he need to travel to find his friend, a dragon, so his search can end and he can go home?

Gordon, the imaginative narrator, brings readers to an alternate world where a favorite mythical creature, dragon, comes to life. Presenting a story that vibrates with life and action in every page, he sweeps readers into a good ride through a good read.
