SONG of LOCKE
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Locke loves stories—they fill him with a longing he can never quite describe—but he’s not the sort of kid who actually lives adventures himself. That is, until a bloodthirsty band of marauders passes near his home and Picke, a musical sylfe, dares him to follow. In hopes of fulfilling his longing, Locke accepts the dare. This leads him on a quest where he must face snarling wolves, wield a magic blade, and risk his life to rescue a Goddess—a girl he hardly knows but who he can’t stop thinking about.
In the spirit of Legend of Zelda and Peter Pan, SONG OF LOCKE portrays a detailed fantasy world, somewhat grittier than its forebears and drenched in human emotion. The tale has swordfights, witty banter, crushes, and even some subtle philosophy smuggled in. It’s an epic for everyone who loves good stories—for anyone who has longed for something that seemed forever out of reach.
“Just think LEGEND OF ZELDA meets GAME OF THRONES.” — Nathan Tucker, Numinous
“SONG OF LOCKE was literally one of the best fantasy books I have ever read. An I-hear-music-in-my-head-while-I-am-reading-it kind of book. It makes the vast majority of fantasy books I have read seem silly by comparison.” — J.R.
“I felt satisfied when I finished. The ending was my favorite. And I still think about the story days after reading.” — G.A.B.
“My personal favorite is the way he describes sounds visually. I’ve never read anything like that before. It took my breath away. I re-read those descriptions several times before moving on just for the pure beauty of it.” — N.W.D.
Great Fantasy Novel!
Do you enjoy "The Lord of the Rings"? This novel is for you. Do you enjoy "The Legend of Zelda" video game series? This novel is for you.
"Song of Locke" is a fantasy novel that clearly has similarities to both of these series', but it is also refreshingly original. As a fan of "The Legend of Zelda" series, I have spent years trying to find a novel that does the series justice; all I have been able to find is mediocre fan-fiction. This novel does not follow the story of Link, but of a young boy named Locke. The originality is effectively balanced with the similarities, which I found enhanced my reading experience.
Also, a large portion of the book is available for free, so see what you think!
