Erik Ashendale is a wizard who solves all kinds of problems of a magical and supernatural nature. So, when he and his talking cat are asked to protect a girl who’s being chased by a big-time demon, they can hardly refuse, especially when the rent’s due. Once the fight takes shape, Erik and the rest of his unlikely companions must pit themselves against the elemental forces of good and evil: angels, demons, a Japanese monster, one of the seven Deadly Sins, talking pets, and even a morally ambiguous twin sister. In order to stay alive, Erik must deal with his terrible past and his family’s secrets.
Here’s what others are saying about it:
YVONE WILLIAMS, Fantasy and Mainstream Fiction writer, and author of The Hunt for Napoleon’s Justice:
“Frequent breaking of the fourth wall and plenty of lampshade hanging make it clear that Attard is fully in control of the insanity that ensues; Firstborn is action-packed and peppered with pop culture references and easter eggs for comic book lovers and gamers alike. Firstborn is a fast-paced joyride, and definitely deserves a read.”
PATRICK STUTZMAN, author of the Science Fiction series, The Chronicles of Anna Foster:
“A beautiful blend of urban fantasy, detective pulp fiction, and action movie goodness! Firstborn brings together all the elements you would expect to see in an urban fantasy novel and more. With a few plot twists along the way to make things even more interesting, I was hard-pressed to put it down to go to work. If his future books are anything like this one, I’ll keep coming back for more.”
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Ryan had one thing that distinguished him from the rest of his fan-fiction writing circle of friends: he would always throw in an original character or unique plot twist that would drive his hardcore, geeky friends up a wall. Nowadays, Ryan divides his time between attempting to live a normal student life, writing the second book of the Legacy series, and ruling over his imaginative worlds as a malicious god.
