Présentation de l'éditeur

Turns Out: The "Demon Weed" actually IS a Gateway Drug!

Who knew? Tom Perkinje certainly didn't. He had never smoked anything in his life, but as the new kid in town trying to make friends he foolishly let his new buddy Reggie talk him into trying a joint that
he'd picked up from a new dealer.

Before he knew it, Tom was having a seriously bad trip; a total out of body experience where the world had dissolved around him. The next thing Tom knew, there were these deranged myopic wizards from some place called Astlan calling on him in some sort of pig Latin mumbo jumbo. They had somehow mistaken Tom for a demon! He tried to flee but the wizards were relentless and were determined to conjure him into their world and bind him as their demon slave for all of eternity!

And these crazy wizards? Turns out they were going to war and planned to use their new demon slave as a secret weapon to obliterate the enemy!

_______________________________________________

Jenn was a journeyman Thaumaturge at Lenamare's Academy of Wizardry. School was a living hell. Oh, she was learning a lot, thanks to Master Trisfelt, but the Head Master and Head Mistress were insufferable egomaniacs. Head Mistress Jehenna seemed bent on making Jenn miserable with her unrealistic demands and eviscerating criticism.

If this was not bad enough, the Head Master, Lenamare, had gone and got in a squabble with another wizard, Exador, and now Exador was marching his army on the school.

And to top it off, during what was supposed to be a routine classroom demonstration on demon summoning, LenaTTmare and the class had stumbled upon what they had thought was a minor demon and tried to bind it.

Unfortunately, it was definitely NOT a minor demon. It was a Greater Demon, something so powerful and Evil that they were almost never conjured onto the Planes of Man. Naturally being Lenamare, Lenamare insisted on trying to bind it to his will so he could use it to destroy Exador and his army.

So the question was: Would Exador's army ravage and kill her, or would the school's newest defense consume her immortal soul?

Biographie de l'auteur

J. L. Langland has been obsessed with science fiction and fantasy since Junior High. Upon hearing the job description "High Energy Astrophysicist" in 8th Grade Physical Science, he set out to become one. His express goal to develop trans-warp capability, patent it, license patent rights, make money, build spaceship, go to the stars. OK, well, he got a B.S. in Astrophysics, then his M.S. and Ph.D. in Experimental High Energy Physics. But by that point, he'd realized that there were probably easier ways to make a living than developing warp drives. Turns out, it was rather more difficult than he'd thought in 8th Grade. So, clearly, the better alternative was to use his knowledge of Multiversal Quantum Topology to create a gateway to other planes of existence. OK, that was tricky too and took many years of work, but eventually he perfected Astral Projection and was able to travel the multiverse using the power of his mind. Now he brings to you, the reader, true stories and historical accounts from his adventures on other planes of existence. J.L. "Doc" Langland was raised on Heinlein, Zelazny, Blish, Herbert, Azimov, Chalker, E.E. "Doc" Smith, Katherine Kurtz, MZB, Paul Edwin Zimmer, Anne McCaffrey, Piers Anthony, Anne Rice, Robert Jordan and thousands of others. He began writing for himself in ages past and has published numerous net fiction short stories under various aliases.

This is an epic book, in every sense of the word.

The basic plot, without giving the game away, revolves around a young man, our protagonist, who gets sucked away from normal life due to the machinations of a bunch of wizards and as a result is turned into a demon...and in many ways it's a coming of age [demonhood] tale. The ingredients are far more complex: there's a book with a secret that two wizards are fighting to get, there are demon, religious and wizardly intrigues and a draft of different characters and magic which all combine to make a rather brilliant story in a well thought out and fun world.

The tone of the story is light, it's by no means a rollicking comedy, nor is it meant to be, but the author approaches both the story and the world with a light touch, which just makes it easier to appreciate. There are several interludes where you are given excerpts from essays dealing with aspects of the world, types of magic, layout of the wizardly council etc. and whilst I grant that these won't be to everyone's taste I decided that they just added depth to the world and opened up possibilities in both the plot and my imagination - one could skip them and not lose too much, but they are neither long nor as a say did I think they detracted from the experience.

Detail.

Firstly audience: really I think this is a book that could be appreciated by any fantasy fan, though I have eclectic taste, so to narrow the field: the world is a hodgepodge mix of classical fantasy, think paladins, elves, wizards, peasants. There is no romance line as yet. It's a coming of age tale. There are demons. There is a bit of journeying around, but in the good way. If your thinking about it give it a shot.

Secondly likes/dislikes

Likes - pretty much all of it really -you can tell the world and plot has been thought out - but the thing that really hooked me was that it got of to a running start and never really paused for breath. I started reading and forgot to sleep. It's long, there's enough meat on the bone to leave you feeling full

Dislikes- only two really: the first is that ending whilst satisfying to a degree is in essence a cliffhanger... And the second book has yet to be published .... And the second is to do with the formatting- the interludes I mentioned above come across as rather faint on the kindle, a greyer text which is a little harder to read.

Conclusion: all in all well written, edited and the length of a proper book -one really gets the right amount of bang for one's buck, so download the sample and give it a shot, if your a fantasy fan or even just into the sci-if/fantasy genre it certainly worth reading the sample and it just gets better after that.

HASH(0x95c4af60) étoiles sur 5 Normally I feel a little guilty and cheap rating a book 5 stars. However, this book deserved it, hands down. 18 avril 2014

This book is so rich with irony that it frustrated me at times. Do not misunderstand, this is in no way a complaint. Rather, I was frustrated because Tom was frustrated; and while I read this book I was Tom or Rupert or Jenn and I felt what they felt so completely that I had no choice to be frustrated when they were.
Langland isn't a one-trick pony either. He delves into all facets of irony throughout the book: verbal, dramatic, and situational. So while we, the readers, feel as the empathetic character feels we can also view the situation/plot as a whole and experience the book that way.
Another plus was the periodic treatises and essays pertaining to different magic related topics. These "information bombs" allowed me, as a reader, to truly understand how certain aspects of the magic system worked beyond the sometimes statement of "it just is" that one often finds in other books. Although, they did serve to break up the plot somewhat. I though that ultimately the served to enhance the reading experience greatly.
All in all, one of the best books I have read in a long time. I was happy to see that there is a second book on the way.

I loved this book, I have constantly had a problem of finding books that break outside of the same old fantasy mold which is loved but can sometimes leave people wanting more. This book provided that in such a way that I have never seen before, and it is books like this that I love because not only do they give you a new story but they also give you new things to think about and that is what this book did in every way possible.

HASH(0x96f34360) étoiles sur 5 being sucked away from his life and having his shape changed ... 3 juillet 2014
Par Darinsane - Publié sur Amazon.com

Very enjoyable storyline and an original premise. I have never seen the idea presented before that when a wizard summons a demonic creature, it could be some hapless fellow from another dimension, being sucked away from his life and having his shape changed to what the conjurer expects him to look like. The poor victim of this summoning is a terrific, sympathetic character. His struggles to adjust to his new reality are deftly handled by the author, with empathy and humor.This author will progress well, and I look forward to reading more.

My only complaint is that the word "who's" is used in every instance where it should have been "whose." This set my grammar nerd teeth on edge. The rest of the writing is quite proficient, and the quality of the story more than made up for this and the very few other minor errors.
