David feels isolated and alone. At thirteen years of age, he has no friends except for his father Peter, and his dog Princess. The loss of his mother and an accident that crippled his left arm, changed his life for the worse. Now his father struggles to make ends meet and his success at school is overshadowed by the constant bullying he endures from those who prey on the weak.

Incapable of defending himself, David has only one place of refuge: the island of the Stone Cathedral - a curious rock formation on an island amid a turbulent lake. Locals have long stayed away, believing it to be a place cursed and haunted by spirits but David has not been so easily deterred. To him, the island is a haven; a bastion against the world outside.

But the island is not all it seems. Deep within its bowels lies a power that has been dormant for thousands of years.

And one fateful day, his school nemesis and a ravenous mountain lion send him careening into the path of the island's long concealed secret, changing his view of the world, as well as his life, forever.

PRODUCT DETAIL

Adam Schott

Adam Schott was born in 1956. During his childhood he was an avid reader of Alexander Dumas, Jules Verne and Arthur Conan Doyle. After finishing high school, Adam undertook information technology studies, a discipline that was just starting to emerge. Subsequently, and during almost 30 years, Adam has worked in the IT area for several major technology companies. He currently works as a technology consultant, specializing on software engineering and enterprise resource planning systems. Adam's favorite SF authors are Arthur C. Clarke and Isaac Asimov. Among other interests, Adam collects comics and vintage computers. One of his most treasured possessions is a Texas Instruments TI-99/4A made in 1981, similar to the first machine he ever owned. The saga of 'Kentash' was born from a story Adam would tell his three young children to entice them to eat their dinner. Eventually it evolved into a short story and finally, after 12 years of work, into a novel. Adam's cooking improved over this time.

Sven Schott

Sven Schott was born in 1979. His interest in technology was piqued at an early age when his grandfather introduced him to the world of valves, alkaline batteries and 8mm film projectors, and it finally bloomed into a love affair when his father brought home their first computer: a Texas Instruments TI-99/4A. During high school Sven discovered the joys of Arthur C. Clarke and John Christopher (Samuel Youd). It was not until he joined the workforce that his reading expanded to the contemporary masters such as Gene Wolfe and Dan Simmons, among others. Sven currently works as a build engineer for an online game developer but his real occupation is the deliverance of the human race from the forces of darkness in the Rhenloweir and Crolan Altiverses. Sven is married but his movement between universes keeps him much too busy to have children. Kentash is but one story of hundreds, in a single altiverse among thousands.
