Sawyer Jackson and the Long Land(2014)
(The first book in the Sawyer Jackson series)
A novel by Kevin Tumlinson
"It's like a mashup of Hunger Games, Harry Potter, and the Iron Druid Chronicles, with a pinch of Doctor Who for flavor."
Some kids are born in a tangle.At sixteen years old, Sawyer Jackson hasn't seen much beyond his grandparents' remote home, until one day he's transported to the Long Land -- a strange world where everything he knows is turned upside down, and everyone he loves is suddenly in a lot of trouble.
Sawyer discovers that he's a Teth -- an ancient bloodline that can see and manipulate the knotwork that weaves all of reality together.
Now he's on the run from an enraged god, fighting vicious monsters and overcoming impossible challenges, and struggling every minute just to survive.
Sawyer could be the hero that saves everyone and everything in existence.
But who's going to save him?
