EDH author turns idea into imaginative novel

By
From page B4 | October 16, 2013 |

At 15, Jordan George decided to write a short story. His nomad warrior Aspheric would go on a quest.

Four years later that adventure has turned into a published 130,000-word sci-fi/fantasy novel, “Brothers of Trust: Winds of Fate,” available at Face in a Book in El Dorado Hills, Book Barn in Folsom and online at amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.

The book follows Aspheric and two companions as they go on an “almost impossible” mission nearly 20 years after war ravages the lands of Critheron and Dasperious.

George describes his hero as a young nomad who’s thrust into an adventure for which he’s not quite ready. He’s aided by two companions, Eldice and Arturs, who save him and he gets a little magic in the form of gloves designed specifically for him.

“It makes him a little stronger, a little faster,” explained George. “It doesn’t make him The Hulk or anything but it does give him an edge.”

It’s this magical invention and many more that will attract readers. George said “Brothers of Trust” will most likely appeal to young adult readers but like many fantasy novels, it has characters and detail that will appeal to anyone ready to escape to a fantasy world.

“Brothers of Trust: Winds of Fate” hit the shelves in hardcover in January 2013; the paperback version came out this fall.

George said authors like Christopher Paolini, who wrote the incredibly detailed and  enthralling Inheritance Cycle Series, inspired him to put his imaginative stories on paper. He’s already working on his second book and hopes to have it on shelves next year.

The book will explore the “cool, unique” back story of the Black Nine Assassins, who pose a threat to Aspheric and his companions in “Brothers of Trust: Winds of Fate.”

“I can’t say any more than that,” the author teased. He also promised a third and possibly fourth installment in his series.

George is a lifelong El Dorado Hills resident who attended Lake Forest Elementary, Marina Village Middle School (where he’ll be a guest speaker later this year) and Oak Ridge High School.

He’s currently taking classes at Folsom Lake College and plans to study computers and business … unless he becomes a world-famous author.

Regardless of the books’ successes, George said he hopes his stories inspire other young writers to share their imaginative adventures with readers.
