Sawyer Jackson and the Shadow Strait(2014)
(The second book in the Sawyer Jackson series)
A novel by Kevin Tumlinson
Ready for another tangle?
The Long Land is a strange and dangerous place, but at the edge of the continent is a dark gap--the Shadow Strait. It is a void between realities, and no one who enters has ever been known to return.So, of course, Sawyer Jackson and his friends and family are on their way there.
As Sawyer's destiny, to save the Omniverse from the dark and twisted Aeodyumus, comes into sharper focus, things get fuzzy around the edges of Sawyer's reality. Difficult choices, questionable allies, and new enemies all conspire to make it difficult to know what path to take, and who to trust.
Sawyer finds himself in yet another tangle, and this time there may be no way out.
>>> "Finally, YA fantasy that doesn't talk down to the reader! This is smart fiction, with a strong voice. It's like a mashup of Hunger Games, Harry Potter, and the Iron Druid Chronicles, with a pinch of Doctor Who for flavor."
-- HPB Review
"Excellent YA Fantasy/Sci-Fi Series Debut, with a hint of Neil Gaiman."-- Jamie Maltman, author of "Bush with Darkness"
"I found myself connecting with Sawyer, a homeschooled teen with a knack for following his curiosity and instinct, and was drawn into discovering the world of knotwork alongside him. Such a fascinating idea! "-- Pam Laricchia, author of "Free to Learn"
"The characters are completely believable (think Orson Scott Card) and the story concept is a new and surprising twist on the concept of the standard Sci-Fi multiverse. I have been following Kevin Tumlinson's work for a couple of years now, this latest book is definitely his best so far. He has found his own Voice as a writer, and I like that Voice."-- David Grundy
"Tumlinson's Sawyer Jackson reaches new fantasy heights - a real contender in the fantasy genre!"
"Slip into the Knotwork ... a new and unique fantasyland from Kevin Tumlinson."
"Incredible flights of fantasy!"
"A slight bit of fantasy noir, and yet still the Sawyer Jackson series could even be an appropriate set of fantasy books for kids age 9-12."
