"This well-written and richly descriptive adventure about an American family vacationing in England that gets transported into a magic-filled realm. This is an engaging story that has major flaw: The fantasy realm the Deeks family is transported is uninspired and conventional, but fantasy fans will find it a highly readable offering."

Synopsis

We have all either read or heard about some faraway fantasy land where there are dragons, Elves, and dwarves. But they are just stories, right? But what if they weren't? The Deeks family, just like you or I or anyone else for that matter, also thought that those stories were just that: stories. That is until one night, while on a family holiday in England, they get lost in the worst fog they have ever seen. And, when they finally get through the fog, they find that they have somehow passed through a portal into another world. The Deeks find themselves in the land of Angron and it is a land where Elves, dwarves, dragons and a whole lot more besides are very real. They also find themselves in a time when the whole of Angron is on the cusp of a war between good and evil and, if they only but knew it, their presence may well be the trigger that begins the bloody conflict. The only question is, do they try and get home before the dark forces of chaos engulf the whole of Angron or do they stay and face the storm?
 

About Raymond Dodds

See more books from this Author
Raymond Dodds has had an interesting and very varied life. Born in Gateshead, England but grew up in Sydney Australia before returning to the UK to serve for a number of years in the armed forces. After leaving the army he held a number of jobs from electrician, security, chef and back to electrician again. However throughout this time one thing has always remained constant: his love of writing and storytelling. Strangely this love of the written word came from his severe dyslexia that has afflicted him his whole life. For Ray, writing was a kind of therapy, a way of constantly practicing spelling and sentence structure which, when mixed with a very active imagination, has led to this book, 'Family Holiday (in a strange land)', that is the first volume in a four-part story.
