Featured Book - Dark Tidings

Ancient magic collides with the Internet

What happens when ancient magic meets the internet? One thing is certain, modern life will never be the same again.

A thousand years ago, a young thief, Tung, and a disgraced wizard, Madrick, are thrust together in an executioner’s dungeon. In the darkness, Madrick reveals an incredible secret about a legendary spell. The great spell helps them escape their prison cell... and eventually their century.

Catapulted into the present day, their lives collide with Michael, a computer hacker who plans to destroy the world’s largest bank. But sinister people are tracking their every move and they will stop at nothing to steal their spell. 

Dark Tidings has had plenty of great reviews. One began with…

“Imagine the worlds of Terry Pratchett and Dan Brown coming together.”

And here’s an extract from a piece written by one of Amazon’s top 500 reviewers...

“What an unusual cross-genre book this is, and how heartily I have laughed and enjoyed it! There are two parallel story lines for the first part of the book, one being set a millennium ago and its two major characters being an elderly magician and a young thief. The other story line follows a young securities expert in a big bank, who discovered that money is being siphoned into the vaults of the already rich, to the detriment of the poorer savers. Incredibly, the first two characters time-shift and the three meet. So far, so fantasy.

The later chapters become the most wonderful, story-twisting thriller. Ken Magee has a delightful sense of humour and the whole book was a joy. I really recommend this to anyone who loves a good tale, well told.

Dark Tidings is available from Amazon...

It’s also available for the Nook and Kobo.
