When a mythical world threatens everything, an unlikely hero must join the battle… College senior Aaron Jace is ready to start life in the real world. After the unexpected death of his grandfather, Aaron finds an unbelievable note that will change his world. The unknowing descendent of an ancient and powerful family, Aaron is thrust into a struggle that began long ago and will reach across worlds to pull him into the fight. When he learns of the world of Safanar, it seems to be the stuff of legends: dragons, castles, and technologically-advanced cities. But it’s as much a dream as it is a nightmare. Danger lurks in the shadows, and a demon sentinel named Tarimus wants to steal Aaron’s power before he can learn his full potential. With the help of an imprisoned Safanarion guardian, two mystical swords, and a puzzling family heirloom, Aaron must journey from Earth to find the fabled land of his ancestors. It may be a path that’s impossible to survive.

  1. The author is a great story teller The author is a great story teller. This story kept my interest from beginning to end. His characters are believable and the fast-paced flow of events keeps you wanting to continue even though there are glaring errors that brought this great story from a possible five stars to the three I have given it.

  2. started out slow but quickly gained momentum. Believable world, characters with well rounded personalities. First off let me say, I am I’m my mid 60 ‘s so grew up with the masters of Sci fi and fantasy authors. The purchase of Road To Shandara was on impulse and mostly because of the special offer. I have ordered several others that have been removed from my device within an hour of trying to wade through the first couple of chapters. Not so with this book!

The protagonist gains abilities without much effort, and starts out already too powerful. Concepts are good, though.
