The Battle For Our Reality Starts On The Streets of Baltimore – The Tether Saga Begins

The Tether Saga: Book One

Welcome to the Tether Saga as the nature of reality starts to change and our only protection against the oncoming darkness is the Keeper of The Tether, the Warden that has kept our reality safe for generations.

The only problem, the new Keeper of Tether came by it purely by accident and she doesn’t want anything to do with her new role. Forget destiny, forget being the chosen one, this is the story of Sarah Taylor, a High School Senior who is thrown into a world that is disturbingly familiar, but has a terrifying evil stalking its shadows, and we are along for the ride. Her only guide is CT, the Grandson of the original Keeper of the Tether and the Tether can summon an Angelic Guardian to protect her… Well, if she can figure out how to make that happen… Or even how to remove the Tether.

Welcome to the world of the Tether, this is a new paranormal action adventure series set in Baltimore, written by Nick Davis & Katrina Roets. We explore this new reality with Sarah Taylor, the most reluctant of Keepers the Tether has ever had. Having come by it after a horrifying series of events we follow her through one terrifying night, as she must master the Tether just to survive!

Released by Altworld Studios as a first of a series of narrative books, the Tether Saga starts an adventure series that takes the entire paranormal adventure genre and dumps it neatly on its head. Part horror, part action packed adventure with a paranormal undercurrent, the first book in this series gives you a glimpse of a world where everything is not as it appears. This may think this is a classic good vs evil struggle, it is far from it and you will be watching the shadows a little closer once you begin this saga.

Something evil is stalking the streets of Baltimore, our only hope is the new Keeper of the Tether – Sarah Taylor. The only problem, she doesn’t want it and her only guide to this new world she has stumbled into is CT, the Grandson of the original Keeper, who really wants the Tether back with his family and Sarah is quite happy to give it back – if the Tether actually lets her remove it.

If that wasn’t a problem enough; Sarah and CT find themselves being hunted by a Demon, a Psychotic Killer and a Shadowy Society; all wanting the power of the Tether for their own nefarious plans. At least Sarah can summon an Angelic Guardian for protection, if she can only figure out how to make that happen and use the power locked in the Tether to help her.

Watch the shadows as the battle for our reality is only just beginning… Set against the real backdrop of Baltimore city this urban paranormal action adventure by Nick Davis & Katrina Roets – follows Sarah through a helter-skelter, one night journey into a reality that is disturbingly familiar, but has an unnatural evil stalking its shadows.

Hey DCEU! Is It Time To Put The Man Back Into Superman?

SupermanI have never made any secret of my bitter disappointment in the DCEU movies and the almost criminally mishandling of the characters and their core values. However what they did to Superman was a crime, sacrificing his values on the altar of building a franchise… When really all they needed to do was put the man into Super.

Stranger In A Strange Land: The Burden Of A Second Generation Conservative

Stranger In A Strange LandI try my best to never be political on my blog, I do try, some times it creeps into my social media, mainly when I see a lunacy of an action, but writing a blog polarizes more than it ever heals and frankly with how partisan the USA politics have become the hassle of dealing with extreme supporters of the left or right, just isn’t worth it. Sometimes though I cannot be silent, and the Presidential election here in the USA has made it harder to be the silent observer and being a second generation conservative that silence has to be broken. So, for what they are worth here are my thoughts of being a second generation Conservative, a stranger in a strange land.
