Product Description

Product Description

Book One, of the Guardians of the Word Series -

Chosen is a fantasy adventure - location; Hell, Purgatory, the Demon's Lair, and Hell is everything it's cracked up to be when you're sixteen and running for your soul.

Dynan Telaerin finds himself on a corpse-strewn hillside, uncertain if he's dead or alive, charged with saving his ancestor, the most powerful telepath to ever exist. Dynan has telepathic powers of his own, only he doesn't know how to use them. With monsters and minions hunting him down, the demon's lair isn't the place to learn anything - except how to run and how to hide. 

But when they take his brother, Dynan will do anything to get him back.

Will courage alone be enough to face the greatest evil to exist? Will he lose his soul to save everyone else?

The running starts, and doesn't stop to the end of this action packed adventure of a young man coming to terms with his life while he's barely a spirit, through horrors he thought existed only in dreams.

Chosen is the first book of the series, The Guardians of the Word. Suitable for mature young adults. The Chronicles are Chosen, Myth, Telepath, Legend, Union, Seer, Adept and King, and are available at Amazon.com

About the Author

Author Jolea M. Harrison has been writing for as long as she can remember, including a 3 x 5 card epic tale of a young princess in search of the King’s approval, who went out and killed the evil monster none of the knights could slay! This short story was even illustrated! After reading The Lord of the Rings, the fantasy bug left a permanent mark, which was then complicated by her immediate love of Star Wars and other works of science fiction. Not paying attention to genre barriers, Ms. Harrison set out to write the story she wanted to, combining these two genres in an enticing and unique way, producing eight novels in the Guardians of the Word series. Her other interests are gardening and maintaining her Civil War era home. On a recent fact finding mission about the house, she discovered the name of a young soldier who died there while being cared for by the doctor who owned the house at the time. She has two children who firmly believe in ghosts. For more information about the author, go to http://jm-harrison.com

More About the Author

I was never considered a rebellious kid. The last of a line of 4 children of Doug and Fran Minnick, I was able to get away with all the usual 'baby of the family' trickery, aka Everything. Really, I got away with it all because I was more observant than my brother and sisters, and learned faster than they did what drove Mom and Dad to distraction. I either didn't do those things, or I did them in such a way as the older sibs got the blame or the parents just didn't find out about it. I snuck out of the house with my older brother and climbed trees down by the run in the middle of the night with a bottle of Jim Beam to go around at the age of not saying. We ran around the neighbor's front field shooting bottle rockets at each other in a mock battle of epic proportions. On THAT one, we got caught. The bottle rockets made too much noise. There was some serious yelling over it, but not for me. I just got sent to bed.

I tried all the usual antics to publish my series about teenage boys who have some similarities to my brother and his friends and got all the usual rejections. I set out as an Indie last June, 2011, and hit the publish button on Chosen, the first of the Guardians of the Word epic fantasy series. So far, it's been a decision I'd make over and over again, just like I'd crawl out my window overlooking the back porch, shimmy down the drain pipe and take off into the night...oh wait, now I can take the stairs.

I'm a writer, a mother and manager of chaos. I try to do too many things at once, like so many of us, but it all usually works out. I love writing. It's what I'm passionate about and what I want to do above all other things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chosen 8 Sep 2012
By Wullie
Format:Kindle Edition
A dark science fantasy in a gothic setting, this is a well written and gripping story with an intriguing and complex cast of characters. There are some very graphic, and genuinely scary, depictions of the netherworld but also some very moving episodes. Compulsive reading, and I will definitely be buying the sequels. Highly recommended.

I loved this book. Took me slightly longer than usual to become engrossed but was definitely fully under its spell within the 2nd chapter. Loved the imagery, fantastic story. Will definitely buy the other books in the series.

I saw this book and because it was free I decided to give it a go. I'm a fantasy and sci-fi genre fan and I was looking for something new to read. I was hooked straight away and couldn't put it down, I've already downloaded the others books and don't intend to have a life until I finish them lol

This book was quite interesting although a little slow to get going. It was a little off track for a while, but as it is part of a series i am hoping it will come together later.

not read it yet so cannot comment as yet. I am sure it is a good book. I have to write something as this is the only way Amazon will get rid of it.

I liked the fact most of the story is set in hell, or what passes for it on their world. The characters are engaging and well written, even those not the heroes, or heroines. Read more
