This is the first novel that I wrote that actually got published in any form. This is a story of two teenage girls that undergo a change in their lives and their growth through a fantastic world and dimension based on colors. There have been many fantasy worlds that are usually Tolkien derivatives and I wanted to take this far beyond that and the idea of colors as living deities brought this concept to life. Add in a mix of derivative mythology and the two girls undergo a transformative adventure.
The novel has a number of key themes to watch for:
(1)‘Faithfulness’ in the overall flow to the Odyssey in terms of the long trip home – the term is used very loosely – you will notice some variations, and some significant, surprising changes.
(2)Colors are the defining cosmology in the cross-over world from the Modern World, but colors also very different in terms of range and application on the cross-over world
(3)People’s language are based on musical tones that translate into letters rather than spoken words
(4)The heroes are all teenagers, rather than adults, the 'coming of adulthood and growth'
(5)Some modern morality themes are prevalent in certain chapters
(6)Use of mixed Ancient Greek words, habits, environmental terms whenever possible to accurately create background in that world. This will change as the world expands in possible future books in the series.
(7)Linguistic taxonomy and alternate history for the world based on the Homeric world, with variations
(8)And a revealing mechanism where the full story will not be revealed even at the end of the novel – encouraging reader imagination
(9)Avoiding profanities, sex, and unnecessary violence throughout the book – wanted to keep it relatively clean
(10)Introduction of knowledge bits through the eidetic Monica to encourage further exploration by the reader if desired.
It did not have to be the Odyssey per se, but since in the beginning it is a journey, that is the legend that was selected as the base. However, as I started developing further, the world is open to a host of different paths and variations. I hope you enjoy and if there is enough interest, I will continue the series as I have a wealth of interesting plotlines to draw from.
