Innocence is shattered when a young man falls victim to a horrible prank.

Blade of Truth by Diane Lynn McGyverYouth and innocence still reside in Bronwyn Darrow. When he attends a celebration with the girl he admires most, he’s elated but extremely nervous. He hopes the night will be one they’ll never forget. Instead, he should have hoped for one easily forgotten.

It’s both, revealing the turning point in Bronwyn Darrow’s life. It exposes the source of the pain that drives him when he meets a woman who challenges his will to remain single in Shadows in the Stone. It’s a quick, easy read and the first introduction into the world of Ath-o’Lea and the adventures that lie ahead.

McGyver wields her pencil in a similar realm where Tolkien released his imagination. It is traditional fantasy of old with magic, legends, dragons and dwarfs.

Impressions Summary

Out of work for two years, Arnold White is desperate to find a job. His long-time girlfriend is through financing his life and is threatening to leave if he doesn’t find something soon. When the owner of a prestigious company offers him a job interview, Arnold feels his luck is changing, until he learns another man is vying for the same position. In a reckless move to land the job, Arnold tells his potential new boss what he wants to hear. A few white lies are harmless if it means he’ll keep his girlfriend and the roof over his head. Or are they?

Refreshing Memories: When things got real tough, Arnold reminded Danah who had paid the bills when they first moved in together. Burdened by mammoth student debt, she had resorted to eating pasta and popcorn to fill her stomach. She lived in a closet with two roommates she despised to avoid sleeping in a cardboard box beneath the bridge. It was worth it, she’d say. It was better than returning home to Nowheresville, rural Nova Scotia, where my choices of employment were between the local camping park, gas station and grocery store.

Moving in together was the perfect solution for both of them. After all, they were in love and wanted to spend every waking and sleeping moment together.

An interesting short story that hits at the heart of Halifax, Nova Scotia, with a quirky character who deserves everything he gets. 

Impressions takes place on the streets of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and inside the local bar Cheers.

The eBook is available at Amazon.ca, Amazon.com and Smashwords.
