Kurzbeschreibung

Comprehensive Edition, Book One in its entirety, Parts One and Two


The journey begins with a dream that is not a dream...

In Part One of this epic adventure, the story unfolds in the provincial town of Noble, where twelve-year-old Heather Nighborne is considered different, strange indeed, seeing auras and befriending the mysterious Aria. Yet, when the time comes for the extraordinary Bristol House to awaken Heather to her true identity and arduous destiny, a grisly incident on the house grounds complicates the girl’s rite of passage: her introduction to the magical Realm of Evermore, the land of Maidens.

In Part Two, the adventure continues, as Heather Nighborne, her best friend Molly Pringle, and their most unusual tour guide find themselves in Autumnsloe, one of the four planet kingdoms of Evermore. But when Heather impulsively deviates from the Parade Day Schedule of Events, the lighthearted excursion soon becomes a fantastic and dangerous journey, an immersion into a land in ominous transition.

The Ruins of Evermore, The TimeLight Awakenings is the first in a series of novels that will take the heroine from age twelve into adulthood and from small town Earth to the exotic planets of Evermore. Over the course of this intricately woven and epic adventure, two vivid and intertwined worlds take shape, highlighted by humor and magic, and shaded with danger and tragedy.


~~~~~~ Reader’s Comments:

"It was so gripping, tension-filled, unexpected...Also, the ending couldn't have been better...I feel rather sad though, that my sojourn in Noble and Evermore is over for the time being...it makes me want to go out and get the next book!"

"Not predictable at all. All the characters are very real, very real."

"Sure do love the house, every child’s fantasy."

"I think Heather and Molly are believable characters and compliment each other. Molly’s admiration of Heather is evident, and Heather’s appreciation and gratitude for Molly’s acceptance of her also comes over."

"...creepy...I am assuming that it is Heather and Molly, and wondering how the heck they are going to get out of it…"

"Loved the costumes, how do you think of this stuff?"

"I am in the chapter where Heather and Molly go to find (censored for spoiler’s sake) and all that neat stuff. Shannon, our daughter, has read the whole book—while I was at work."

"I'm 2/3 of the way through it. Frankly, it's not my kind of book, but I want to see how it comes out!! I've never read this type of literature before."

"I need more. I was up until 1:30 with nothing to interrupt me. So much action, who could go to sleep?"

"...I was taken to another plane...swept away with the beauty of your imagery, and the fearlessness of your imagination!"

"We should have a time with all readers to get together and talk about the book, the clues along the way, the rooms in the house..."

"Such an awesome heroine...Oh, I just LOVE Heather...with all her teenage lack of confidence. She is so nice and good and the world needs more like her. Not just in Evermore, but here on earth too."

"...And NERVE-WRACKING!! Will I survive this?? I can feel my blood pressure go up as I read!"

" Very exciting, very rich, very suspenseful...although I'm looking forward very much to the next chapters, I am also feeling a little bittersweet about this book ending."

"So I sat down and read like 100 pages without even thinking about it today. So much death! So much destruction! And for some reason that scene with Mistraya and Bayliss was the most brilliant! Such a creepy child…with an agenda of her own."

"...created a whole world and it's wonderful and magical and scary and delightful...I hope this story will be shared with many, many others. It is so very worthy of that."

"It’s an excellent read!"

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful, suspenseful MUST READ for fantasy fans 2. Januar 2012
Von Patsy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This masterful novel will be a delight to readers of any genre who appreciate excitement, suspense, a creative story line, beautiful character development, and unbounded imagination. This is the first book on which I have acted as a "reader", and the experience has been fantastic! The author takes the reader on a thrilling adventure through two very real worlds - and ties them together seemingly without effort. Some of the most beautiful word pictures I have ever seen are sprinkled throughout the book. His characters - Heather and Mollie, and the Bristol House (yes, the house) and Falasha to name a few of my favorites - become as real as your best friends. The reader's look at Evermore is tantalizing, and leaves us with secrets that are yet to be revealed. We NEED and want to have a sequel as soon as possible!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Spine-Tingling Fantasy Adventure 20. November 2011
Von roboshop - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
When David Saccheri asked if I would like to be a reader of the final draft of his epic novel "The Ruins of Evermore: The TimeLight Awakenings", I was slightly apprehensive because fantasy would not be my genre of choice. However, I was curious enough to give it a try, and I am so glad I did. Had I not had an open mind, I would have missed out on meeting a fascinating heroine, Heather, and her best friend, Molly. My preference for real life/reality was not left wanting because the book encompasses the girls' experiences in two worlds....one much like our own, and a parallel fantasy world so vividly described that it effectively succeeded in firmly and convincingly placing a "realist" like me in Evermore with Heather and Molly.

In short order, I was so invested in the girls' and their adventures and experiences, I couldn't wait to read on and didn't want to put it down. This meant that I finished the book too quickly for my liking, and was left wanting more! A sequel is a definite must!

Von Waste of Paper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I highly recommend this book. I'm usually not someone who reads fantacy but this is so much more. The characters are real, the mystery is intense, the vivid visual world is a treat for the imagination and it's a total get away from my everyday life. I loved it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Painted Words 20. Juli 2012
Von PattiO - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I don't usually read fantasy novels but this was and exception. I was hooked by David's prose...visually hooked... on painted words. Should I have expected less from a wonderful painter :) The action scenes were a bit long for me. I don't read as fast as I can watch a full blown action scene at the cinema... perhaps we have movie series in the making :>
Thanks David! I shall be waiting evermore for more Evermore!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ruins of Evermore 12. Juli 2012
Von Karen Savage - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The ruins of Evermore was the first fantasy book I have every read. The world of Fantasy that David (the Author) has created and mixed with the ordinary way of life makes the book an easy fun read. It kept my interest and the author's knowledge and use of words along with his unusual imagination makes you feel like you are there with Heather and Molly. A great experience and looking forward to book #2.
