Land of Nod, The Artifact - Reviews
Combine the ingredients of Multi-dimensional Space-time, Reluctant Male Hero, Strong and Brash Female Lead, Aggressive Reptilian Baddies that infiltrate your dreams, a Cowardly and Complacent Bureaucracy, an Ancient Prophecy, a Powerful Talisman and a War Between Continents ... and you’re fermenting a pretty strong brew. The fast pace (most chapters are three pages or fewer) guarantees that you won’t put the book down. This is Harrison Ford style adventure.
But there’s more. Like most engrossing tales, “Land of Nod, The Artifact” also has a strong ethical foundation. We’re at home in Gary Hoover’s created alternate world because we’ve traveled there before: The King Arthur cycle, the adventure novels of Robert Louis Stevenson, the Tolkien saga—All are built around humanity’s ideals of courage, ingenuity and mercy. I, for one, look forward to the publication of further Land of Nod tales.
