We have just received an email from Alex Jackson regarding the exciting release of his new fantasy novel, Malkonar. Since I know many of you have a penchant for dragons and fantasy, I have attached his plot synopsis and link to Amazon for anyone that’s interested. Alex has kindly offered to come in to speak to us about the writing and publishing process, which I think would be a great opportunity. Hopefully we will be able to arrange something for the end of May after exams or perhaps in September in the new term. Anyway, here you go:
Set in Northumberland, Malkonar provides a traditional fantasy story with a modern, dark twist.
Peter Vaughan’s first mistake was to answer the phone and let a malicious voice known only as Malkonar demand he return a seemingly harmless stone to its former home.
His second mistake was to turn him down.
Before he knows it Peter is in a race to uncover Malkonar’s true identity as his pursuit of the stone descends into violence. The truth is worse than anything he could imagine: Malkonar is not a person, but a species. Dragon-like creatures with the power to possess and even consume the minds of others. His only hope of survival hinges on the knowledge of Septimus, a young malkonar he rescued from certain death, but there’s one small problem: he can’t speak English.
