Ghilan By Robert Mitchell, Jr
Rating: Not yet rated.
Published: Oct. 03, 2012
To be honest trying to give a summary of the story without spoilers is a bit harder than I thought it would be. The story revolves around a teenage boy, Ergie, which comes face to face with an ancient race of creatures that do not have a happily-ever-after planned for the city. Ergie is faced with overwhelming odds that he may or may not prevail against. His family is in danger as well as the girl he has come to realize he cannot live without.
First off the author created an entire language for this series. A language that is introduced the same way we learned how to speak our own native tongue. As much as I love languages I do not feel my brain functions to the point of creating a brand new one.
The story is told through current events as well as history flashbacks so that you may learn where these creatures originate. You get to learn as Ergie learns. It puts your belief on the between that of fiction and non-fiction. You begin to second guess what you know as fact. Mitchell sets the pace in the initial chapters so that when things began to move along you wouldn’t feel lost.
I recommend the book because it was a terrific read it was laid out for all minds alike. It keeps you on your seats edge. Will Ergie be able to save his family? What about the girl he loves? There is enough action to keep you interested and you feel like you’ve learned something, but is it real or just fiction?
Cannot wait for the next book to come out.

I wake up and I am so inspired! I'm ready to just write and create all day long. I roll over and realize it's a work day at the corporation. Occasionally I want to just blow it off because my creativity is more important. I get up and go. Then on my days off I want to be as unproductive as possible. I give myself a kick in the butt and get the juices flowing. Balancing is getting tougher. Two full time jobs but not enough hours in the day.
Get out there and embrace the time you have!

Lacking motivation this last week to really do anything. So I just pushed a little harder and got a few pages done. I've been trying to work on finishing as quick as possible to finish the revisions but I find myself gazing at the pages blankly. Easily distracted I have been these last few days. Trying to gain some focus.
