Edward Kelly, who was born in Massachusetts, spent summers in Maine, and believes his faith and family are the most important things in life, has completed his new book “Not by Sight”: an action-packed fantasy adventure that draws on themes of friendship and discovery. It weaves a tale of magic, friendship, and science fiction to create a fantasy world that will draw readers back again and again.
Edward writes, “A roar bellowed from the tree line, followed by the stench of rotten fish. A blueberry bush shook, surrendering its berries. A white polar bear head emerged first, then its wet hyena-like body. Flies buzzed around its grey matted fur. It roared again, louder this time.
“The creature stepped into the harsh purple light. It lowered its head and raised its haunches, ready to pounce. It kicked ashy dirt toward the fire, as if to darken its attack. Its eyes fixed on her.”
Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Edward Kelly’s suspenseful tale is a thrilling, magical adventure written to intrigue young readers of all ages. Told from the point of view from 12-year-old Hannah Walker while she is on a trip to the Maine coastline with her brother and father, instead of hiking and playing guitar as planned, she goes on the adventure of a lifetime. The adventure starts when a cry for help is heard over the ocean. Hannah rescues a mysterious bird-girl who has a secret.
Hannah accepts the bird-girl’s offer to go on a boat ride with her and her friends. The boat gets caught up in a storm, and they get sucked into a magical gate. This gate takes them to a new land full of magic. Earth appears in the sky and spider-lobsters start attacking. They find out that when Earth fades away, there is no getting back home to Earth. Hannah gets an eerie sensation when she realizes this new magical world is actually very familiar. Perhaps she read about it in one of her dad’s books. It turns out the people and other beings of this magical place have been hiding an important secret about Hannah that others may kill for.
Hannah, her brother Duncan, and the bird-girl must find a way to save the planet and find their way back home to Earth before they are stuck forever. It has the magic of Harry Potter, the fun of Percy Jackson, and the wit of The Hobbit. This book is perfect for anyone who wants a fun read with loads of action and some unexpected twists.
Readers who wish to experience this mesmerizing work can purchase “Not by Sight” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
