One boy… One promise… A world of perilous adventure.

When J.R. Timble wakes to discover something unnatural has happened to him, he has no idea it’s the result of a majestic event that happens every 150 years, which has also awakened fierce adversaries who come hunting–for him. But when more jaw-dropping phenomena follows, J.R. soon realizes something sinister is at hand.

Overnight his simple life is shattered; a life-changing promise plunges him into a new world of Destiny, Deadly Peril and Mystical Forces. With only the clues from a mysterious local legend in the Redwood Forest, J.R. and his secret society friends must unlock and navigate an unknown realm in the real world and its dark enemies–unleashed by a villainous mastermind whose evil knows no limits.

Can J.R. fulfill the prophecy of the Whiffler’s Legend? His life–and the lives of children around the world may depend on it.

****Fast-paced, humorous and amusing, Jicky Jack And The Ominous Promise is an adventurous tale that will lift you and stay with you even after you've turned the last page.

About the author

Mr. Bryan has been telling stories since a very early age, some of them not so true--his mother would attest. However, if you ask Mr. Bryan he'd say otherwise. And tell you, "I lived the quintessential Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn childhood; nomadic, untethered, full of tales, defiant of rules, and in search of discovery, treasure and adventure." And what is more, that same adventurous spirit is still thriving strong, and coming to life in his latest creation; a brand new middle grade Sci-Fi adventure series, "FLIGHT KNIGHTS".

C.D. Bryan is the recipient of Florida's FWA - Royal Palm Literary Award, in Middle Grade Fiction, for his debut novel "Jicky Jack And The Ominous Promise", previously entitled "J.R. Timble and The Whiffler's Dream".

This carefully crafted ebook: “The Princess and the Goblin & The Princess and Curdie (Complete Illustrated Edition) ” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Princess and the Goblin and its sequel quietly suggest in every incident ideas of courage and honor. Both the books start out as normal fairy tales, but slowly become stranger, and they contain layers of symbolism similar to that of Lewis Carroll’s work. Eight-year-old Princess Irene lives a lonely life in a castle in a wild, desolate, mountainous kingdom, with only her nursemaid "Lootie" for company. Her father the king is normally absent, and her mother is dead. Unknown to her, the nearby mines are inhabited by a race of goblins, long banished from the kingdom and now anxious to take revenge on their human neighbors. One rainy day, the princess explores the castle and discovers a beautiful, mysterious lady, who identifies herself as Irene's namesake and great-great-grandmother. The adventure continues with Princess Irene and Curdie a year or two older. They must overthrow a set of corrupt ministers who are poisoning Irene's father, the king. Irene's grandmother also reappears and gives Curdie a strange gift. A monster called Lina aids his quest. George MacDonald (1824-1905) was a Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister. He was a pioneering figure in the field of fantasy literature and the mentor of fellow writer Lewis Carroll. His writings have been cited as a major literary influence by many notable authors including W. H. Auden, C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Walter de la Mare, E. Nesbit and Madeleine L'Engle. G. K. Chesterton cited The Princess and the Goblin as a book that had "made a difference to my whole existence".
