Heir of Nostalgia- A Gathering of Darkness (Book One)
Don’t read on a Kindle? Got you covered!
“Valerian: Heir of Nostalgia Series” is filled with suspense, mystery, and worldly intrigue. From the snow covered streets of New York to the hallowed halls of the British Museum of Antiquities, Heir of Nostalgia chronicles the journey one young man is willing to make, all for the love of a Father… and a lost throne.
At eleven years old Phillip had everything a boy could want. In less than a year all that changed when his father went missing.
At 13, the privileged life Phillip once knew is gone. He is homeless, hungry, and heartbroken. He’s been living on the streets of New York ever since that fateful night, and the only thing that keeps him going is the thought of vengeance. He’s looking for the man he feels is responsible for his father’s disappearance, the man with the silver singing spurs. Will a Riot Grrl called Maggie, who claims she can talk to angels, be able to help Phillip? Will a murder of ravens masquerading as teenage thugs defeat them? Or are there stronger forces at work?
No one ever said growing up would be easy- then again no one ever said it would be this hard either.
An Excerpt from Heir of Nostalgia:
“You know exactly what you are,” responds Phillip, slowly advancing,”And so do I, rauen.” If he’s right, the thing before him is a fabrication, a lie in the form of a man- in other words, a doppelgänger. Someone made you and put you here to hunt me and my family down. so the last thing I need to do is spell it out, not to the likes of you.” Seeing Blair paw at the weapon pinned in his shoulder he continued, “So how does it feel,” he added, “to be stuck, to know that no matter what you do or what you say, you ain’t going anywhere until we reckon this thing between us?”
A new talent, states E. Finlayson of Staffordshire, UK. This book can be considered equally as a young adult book or an adult book. The plot is out of the usual and the writer builds both tension and atmosphere skillfully. Like other reviewers I could hardly put it down until it was finished, and I hope very much for a Book 2.
AMAZING! Says Ron, you feel like your right there beside the characters throughout their whole journey. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone ready for an adventure. There were times while reading this book that my heart would be beating faster. Can’t wait for the next book in the series! HIGHLY recommend this book!
