Debut Novel by Jaimie Engle

Jaimie Engle's debut novel will be released by Wayman Publishing House in December 2013. It is a middle grade book titled CLIFTON CHASE AND THE ARROW OF LIGHT.

 It is a historical fantasy taking place during the time of King Richard III (whose bones were just discovered and verified in February!) during the Battle of Hastings, the final battle of the War of the Roses. It was inspired by the story of his two nephews, whose bodies were never found, assumed to have been murdered by their uncle.

The protagonist, Clifton Chase, finds an arrow in his closet which is a magical portal that takes him to England, 1485. Thrust into an adventure, Clifton must evade the King’s army, rescue the two princes from a heavily guarded tower, escape the fierce fires of a Crestback Dragon, outsmart the Mer King, and get the girl, all the while protecting the Arrow of Light. But, his journey isn’t over yet. Clifton needs to discover the arrow’s purpose for choosing him. And when he does, he must decide if he is willing to risk his life for the lives of others.
