“They have found Celyn,” said a voice in the dark. His words echoed back at him giving shape to a vast unseen cavern.

Little did Travis realise when he purchased an old junk-shop paper-knife as a Christmas present on a stormy Cornish evening that he was being manipulated by forces from an alternate reality.

Tricked into invoking ancient magic, he and his brothers unknowingly open a connection to the mysterious Otherworld, allowing it to bleed through into modern day Liskeard.

If Travis, Evan, and Liam cannot reverse the effects of the ritual before the impending winter solstice, their lives will never be the same again.

Ancient mythology and the modern world collide in a quiet Cornish town culminating in a race against the approaching winter solstice.

“Full of amazing detail. I couldn’t put it down!”

The Solstice Blade is a fantasy adventure novel set in Cornwall by Robert Beck.

“Travis hadn’t been expecting snow.

He also hadn’t been expecting to encounter the ethereally beautiful Celyn inexplicably lost in his back garden.

Finding himself as the quarry of a spectral hunt from another world came as something of a surprise too.

And he certainly wasn’t expecting today to be the last he would ever know.

Ancient mythology and the modern world collide in a quiet Cornish town in a race against the approaching winter solstice.”
