Author & Book Spotlight Back Roads Kingdom by Christian O'Neill

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Title: Back Roads Kingdom
Author: Christian O'Neill
Series: The Back Roads Cycle (Book 1)
Genre:Epic Fantasy/Urban Fantasy
Publisher: Self Published
Release Date: Feb 15 2015
Edition/Formats Available In: eBook
Blurb/Synopsis:

"Penny Lazarus has spent her entire life wishing she could escape from the real world. Through it all, she had exactly one friend - her twin sister, Dana - and now Dana's dead, drowned in the distant Pacific under mysterious circumstances. But she left something behind, meant only for her sister's eyes: a cryptic document that sends Penny off to the wilds of Appalachia...and then straight off I-64 and into a madcap alternate America.

Here, in the hidden world known as the Back Roads, every individual's deepest desire emerges as a powerful supernatural ability. In Penny's case, that means she's a Veil, capable of turning herself invisible, intangible, ghost-like. Stranger yet, this is a place Dana somehow knew about. Now Penny must fight her way across a nightmare landscape of cyborg bikers, man-eating mosquitoes, snake-handling zealots and warring Cherokee demigods in search of the truth.

What she hoped to find were the answers behind her sister's death. But what awaits her at the end of the road is something even bigger - the dark secret of her own world-shattering destiny.

BACK ROADS KINGDOM is the first volume in a thrilling new American fantasy saga that weaves together Appalachian folktales, urban legends and paranormal lore into a dark and hilariously twisted coalpunk epic."
