#BookReview: Tales of the Lost Horizon by @MichaelEging @Netgalley






Synopsis: Enter into the worlds beyond our world, where dragons hunt through the skies on emerald wings, and metal ships hurl through the heavens across the void of space. Written by the award-winning author and screenwriter, Michael Eging, Tales of the Lost Horizon is a collection of speculative short stories and poetry that spans a millennium across realms of fantasy, history, and science fiction to the apocalypse and the end of days.




Illustrated by rising talent, each artist brought their own style and vision to the collected works. Flee through the haunted wood of Albion with the wild Hunt at your heels, claw at the dirt covering your own grave, and stand before the rumbling mountain smoldering with secrets.




Pull up a chair by the fire, turn the page and step into Tales of the Lost Horizon.




This collection also includes The Lost Spell and What's in a Name.

My Review:  This was an adventure!  I was swept up in the story and left speechless as I read through this tale. This is sure to be a classic! I think fantasy lovers will die hard love this story and will not be able to put it down.

About the Author

Mike has wanted to write since he was very young. His earliest memories are of carrying a battered old notebook around full of illustrations and stories. He would often transpose those ideas on his grandmother's old typewriter. While in college, he was inspired by professors and visiting writers to BYU. Literary classics such as Song of Roland and Inferno were often in his backpack, along with Russian textbooks. Chapter 4 of Annwyn's Blood was written during this time as a short story. Recently, Mike has pursued an interest in writing screenplays for feature films with his first option being a medieval epic, Song of Roland. He continues to focus on a variety of script/movie projects, most recently a horror thriller, Feast of Saint Nicholas, and a political thriller, The Prince. He lives in Northern Virginia with his wife, Lori and his wonderful children. He dreams of one day driving in his old Defender to Alaska with his kids and their dog, Rufus.
