The Torans of Andor by Linda Arditto
Fiction. Young adult/Teen. Fantasy. Adventure. Approx: 112,150 words.
Was it an accident or fate which drew Peter to discover the magical
Toran jewel? Did whoever or whatever that left this jewel behind intend for him to find it on a particular day with a particular intent? Passing through the portal via the jewel, our unlikely and rather cowardly hero soon finds himself thrown into a world
of Volitos, Maytols and dwarf-like forest people.
Under the guidance of Agravain, our young hero must translate the Book of Ages to save the world from total destruction. Along the way, he experiences true love with
the beautiful Katell. He also finds friendship and comraderie with some rather dubious characters all while struggling through the right of passage into manhood.
But, not all is as it seems. Friends soon prove to be enemies, enemies soon prove to be friends.
Lies melt into truth and become so mixed that it is unclear which path Peter must follow. Will his misplaced trust turn his world into a nightmare? Will he live to see his family again and save this alien world as well as his own?
With the magic of C.S.Lewis
and Roland Emmerick. Linda Arditto has composed a tale that's hard to put down, a tale that makes you want to turn the next corner to see where it will all lead.
