For the next week, it will be available at the minimum price allowed by Amazon, as it is available in other formats.
The Spurious Sorcerer is a humorous physical and mental fast-paced all-action adventure into the unknown.
An attractive woman wakes Martyn at dusk, but he has no memory of how he arrived near the terrifying forest. Sujane’s ancient dialect and ignorance of modern roads, cars and telephones only increases his confusion. Slowly, fragments of memory return but he has no time to solve the enigma as the darkness deepens. Both must now run for their lives from the awakening forest, and he notices she is carrying a sick young girl. Their familiarity reminds him that he has a wife and child, causing him to believe he is mad, dead, or dreaming. They arrive at an ancient village, and her selfish, lazy and drunken brother reminds Martyn of himself. When her brother says he will return the child to the forest to die, Sujane insists she will take the girl to the sorcerer for healing. Her brother says the sorcerer will kill them both. As Martyn settles into a drunken stupor, he discovers the close parallels between what is happening and his memories.
When Martyn wakes in his damaged garage, he realises the other world is real. His family have left him and he is dying. News reports tell of terrorists attacking military targets during dry thunder storms, and he recalls the dry storm as he awoke on the other world and when returning. The sorcerer, who sounded like his traitorous missing brother-in-law, was responsible for dry thunder storms on the other world. Rather than defecting, Sullivan had found a way to this world and equipped a personal army to control the population. Now, Martyn knows his brother-in-law’s secret.
If Martyn wants to regain his family and his life, he believes redemption only lies with saving Sujane and her daughter, and stopping Sullivan from destroying more lives. He prepares for one final adventure in his life.
Time is against him. The alignment between the two worlds only lasts for four days, and Sullivan intends destroying Martyn’s home to stop him returning using the device he had built during the previous alignment. Failure is not an option. Martyn must use all his strength, knowledge and wit to overcome increasingly difficult obstacles while dealing with a strange land with stranger creatures.
