Dec 4, 2006"The Secret Chronicle of Oisin" Death is a mystery that will one day have its secret revealed to all of us. Adrian Rogers, in his latest book 'The Secret Chronicle of Oisin' takes the reader on an imaginative journey in the way he portrays death. He again uses the genre of fantasy to link his previous book 'The Time Tunnel and the Grail' to that of his latest epic. Oisin is a warrior of Erin who fears nothing in the living world. His hardened life has conditioned him to react instantly in an aggressive manner to any threat to his well being, or the ones he loves. Naomh is a fairy princess who in her own way is as much of a warrior as Oisin. She plays a pivotal role in forging the role he takes throughout the book... ... Their marriage takes place in Tyr n'a n'Og, and it is not long consummated when the match comes under a dire threat. Death has managed to force his way into the kingdom of the immortals, and weave his destruction into the fiber of their existence. To... More > survive this threat to their tenure on eternity, Oisin is chosen to embark upon a quest. How he tackles the challenges thrown to him... will test all the facets of his character. The fate of Tyr n'a n'Og rests on his shoulders. It is a task that fills him with doubts about his inner strength. Yet he can only get answers to his questions by venturing into the realms of uncertainty that his quest will throw at him. Lovers of dark fantasy will love this book. The author has written it in a style that entertains through the richness of its language and thought provoking concepts. It is a book that can be read from two different perspectives. Strictly as an action epic in a fantasy environment, or as a deeper reading experience where one's intellect needs to reflect on hidden meanings... It is a book that I found gave rise to a greater understanding of a culture's attitude to death. Not in a macabre way, but in a manner that both entertained end educated on the intellectual level. If one is looking for a different slant on the genre of fantasy, filled with strong images and rich langauge, this is the book for you.< Less
