The Sorcerer's Tome
THOMAS KNIGHT believes in magic, especially at this time of year. He wouldn’t be surprised if Santa himself descended from the night sky and asked for directions to the nearest reindeer servicing depot. But tonight, Tom discovers that magic is real as he is thrust into a world of mythical creatures, magical objects, evil sorcerers and very cold feet.
Walking home after a Christmas party, the fourteen year old becomes trapped in a magic portal and is deposited in an ancient realm where mystical forces originated. In his attempt to get home, Tom meets an unemployed cleric who soon discovers that he is a powerful hero, about whom the ancient Lost Scrolls were written centuries before.
Helped by a vampire with an affliction, a girl who is barking mad once a month, a faery with a masculinity complex and a weepy seer, Tom must rid this world of it’s evil ruler, the Sorcerer Balfore, steal the source of his power, a powerful magic book and use it to open a portal back to his Berkshire home. No problem. The trouble starts when he tries to use magic. He has power, that much is certain, but it’s like using a flame thrower to light a birthday candle.
