The unlikely hero in this well written and sophisticated fantasy novel is a retired engineer.
With his career successes behind him and wife away, he seeks to find a greater meaning like that found by the lead characters in many of the fantasy novels that he loves so much.
Using unusual artifacts from his world travels, he enters a fantasy world, accompanied by an elf-like guide.
On his fascinating and epic fantasy journey, Albert Higgins encounters a family that desperately needs help and a range of complex and interesting situations.
I found the writing exceptional, vividly painting pictures in my mind of portals and the thought provoking worlds and situations that they connect.
Albert Higgins becomes a man caught between two worlds, while learning that the longer he stays in one, the harder it will be to get back to the other.
His entertaining quest helped him better understand mercy, hope, courage, and wisdom - life lessons for all of us.
Albert also learned that you can’t always be the “hero" without putting others at risk.
