One boy...one Rite... And a world of deadly secrets that could change the course of history—forever
And so begins the tale of Mierta McKinnon. When a horrible fate reveals itself during his Rite of Wands ceremony, he must find a way to change not only his destiny but also the land of Iverna’s.
Forbidden from revealing the future he foresees to anyone, he is granted a wand and his magical powers, but still must master the realm of magic in order to save himself and those he loves.
But Mierta is not the only one with secrets...especially when it’s impossible to know who to trust.
"Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter 'H'."
Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!
Galactic Senator Plunkitt and his faithful iBot butler Jobs warp to the overgrown hot-house planet Tree, where even the hotel rooms are alive--and possibly trying to consume them. Until today, the termites sanitation union has kept the foliage at bay, but now Plunkitt has accidentally sparked a planet-wide strike, instantly making him the most hated being on Tree. Can Jobs hack through the jungle of sabotage, alien love triangles, and insider trading schemes, not to mention the aggressive undergrowth itself, in time to save his master from the clutches of the Devil's Toilet Bowl? Only Jobs knows, and he finally tells all in Up A Tree.
Jobs and Plunkitt are the Jeeves and Wooster of the 31st century, and their adventures are out of this world. In their debut novel "Up A Tree", Jobs serves up a smorgasbord of sci-fi satire suitable for fans of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett.
