Prodigy of Rainbow Tower Goodkindles Write-Up

When I put Prodigy of Rainbow Tower on Goodkindles (and, I need to create specialized write-ups for each site. is more short and sweet, so I can handle that, but Goodkindles wants entertaining and kind of behind-the-scenes.  So, I’m writing them in advance to make the second book’s debut a quicker blast.  Here is what I wrote for Goodkindles and I’d greatly appreciate some feedback:


This is the action-packed sequel to Legends of Windemere: Beginning of a Hero, which follows the adventures of Luke Callindor and his friends.  Unlike the previous book, Prodigy of Rainbow Tower takes the readers through a journey into Windemere instead of the action taking place in a single location.

After surviving his first mission and a semester at Hamilton Military Academy, Luke Callindor and his friends set out to escort the Serabian heir back to the capital city of Gods’ Voice.  Begrudgingly leaving his new girlfriend behind, Luke sets out along the L’Dandrin River and prepares himself for a gauntlet of traps set by the Lich.  It’s a journey that takes him from the bustling city of Gaia to the thief-ruled city of Rodillen and straight to the peaceful walled city of Freedom.

Joining Luke is a new ally and potential friend named Nyx.  This half-elven caster is the titular prodigy of Rainbow Tower and starts off her friendship with Luke by trying to blast him with fire spells.  Hot tempered, short fused, and more stubborn than Luke, Nyx and her incredible magic prove to be a powerful ally.  She is exactly the type of ally that is needed to help combat the magic of Queen Trinity, the cunning ruler of the chaos elves, who has been sent to help the Lich.  An unbreakable friendship and a devastating rivalry bloom as Nyx steps into the world outside of Gaia for the first time in her life.

Retaining the humor and action of its predecessor, Prodigy of Rainbow Tower puts our heroes through the physical and emotional wringer.  Luke and his friends will never be the same by the end of their adventure due to a horrible betrayal.  Nyx struggles to adapt to life as an adventurer and must learn to trust her life to those that she barely understands.  It is also here that the reader starts to get hints about the grand plot of the series and what the gods have planned for the heroes.

One of the most enjoyable things to write, and hopefully read, in regards to this book is the introduction of Nyx.  She is an incredible young woman with great power, a heavy burden, and deep scars from her past.  Even with all of her power and strength, an innate fragility grew out of the character as I wrote her.  It was as if her magic had been used to cover her emotional turmoil and setting out on her first adventure was forcing her to cope with her issues at a rate faster than she can handle.  For her emotional depth and the great scenes that I get out of her, Nyx was easily the highlight for me writing this book.  So, I really do hope everyone enjoys seeing her in action.

    I really like this: it immediately made me want to read the book. You know, one of the things I liked most about Beginning of a Hero was the humor you added. I also liked the fact the characters seemed so real, and in a way, modern. They didn’t seem to be from medieval times, which is very different from other books of the same genre, but that’s why I enjoyed it so much: it truly is one-of-a-kind. I liked the way the characters spoke, how I could really visualize the surroundings, and how everyone and everything seemed so true to life. This synopsis (for lack of a better word) is engaging and exciting, I’m positive that if read by a potential buyer, they’ll be sold!


    • Thanks. I really appreciate the praise. The funny thing about the modern feeling is that I originally tried for a more medieval setting. Then I had Fritz play with more technology, which turned the entire world into one of magic that it is at the beginning of a magi-tech revolution. As the series and other series progress, more technology will be appearing with a magical flare to it.
