The thunder caused by a lightning bolt streaking across the sky brought Yron out of his bed. Magic, he thought. In the opening line from his epic book, Jon Franklyn, author of The Carbynarah Chronicles, Book 1, of his Fantasy Fiction series, sets the stage for the reader’s thorough enjoyment as they escape to the land of Carbynarah, a world created specifically for magic.
In his first novel, Franklyn captures the essence of the reader’s imagination and takes them into a magical world unlike anything they have experienced before. Unlike many series books, Franklyn has beaten the second book blues that many series books face. With the second book already written and scheduled to be released in March 2018, the reader will have a chance to follow the exploits of the characters as they face the challenges of a magical realm that is losing its ability to keep its magic.
In a world that is crafted with a unique vision into the working of the people of Carbynarah, the reader can enjoy watching how even the most poor and humble can transform the world in which they live. With The Inset’s distinctive plot twists, the reader can expect the unexpected as events transpire in a way that causes them to reflect back and wonder how they could have missed all the subtle hints.
Carbynarah is a world at war with itself. It was created so that all living things could use the magic that comes from Essence produced by the tree pictured on the cover. Shortly after the creation of Carbynarah, Natural magic users (magic that comes from the DNA of the individual) infested the world.
Over the years, Natural magic users have been unable to overthrow the magic created from the Essence on Carbynarah; but now, as magical essence is diminishing, the Natural magic users believe it is time to try again. The people of Carbynarah are on the verge of uniting, and the Natural magic users realize this may be their last chance…
These two magical factions, Essence Magic and Natural magic, have been at war with each other since the beginning of time, and this story is about the struggle for power that escalates as these two factions make their final bid for the very heart and soul of Carbynarah.
