Dear Universe,

We need to learn to communicate better.  I’m trying to listen to you, but you’re making it very difficult not to think you want me to spend my nights with Mama Cass and pizza.

Help me out–instead of shoving, try to help me become more loving, more patient, more amazing.  Give me peace when I am angry and help me forgive those who have wronged me.  Bring them love, and help them become better people.

Even though you have been ruthless lately, I still believe in your ability to be kind and to help us all heal.

Everville Rise Of MalloryEverville: The Rise of Mallory

Roy Huff

    Owen Sage is the emblematic college freshman at Easton Falls University. With all the worries about his first year in college, he was not prepared for what would happen next. His way of life was flipped upside down when he was drawn into a different world, a world unbeknownst to him. He mysteriously crossed into another dimension, into the beautiful land of Everville. His excitement was abruptly halted when he discovered that there was a darkness forged against both the natural world, which he knew well, and the new land which he discovered, Everville. He must devise a plan to save both worlds while joining forces with the race of Fron and The Keepers, whom both harbor hidden secrets he must learn in order to gain power over the evil that dwells in The Other In Between.

With a race against time to save both worlds, his short time at Easton Falls did not quite prepare him for the evil, dark forces he must fight in order to conquer The Other In Between.
