Travis: An Altan Series Story
Author: JR Geoghan
A prequel & origin story for one of the most endearing characters of the Altan Series of Christian Fantasy/Action novels!
Nineteen year-old Ohioan Travis Moore is a “citizen soldier” in 1863 who is captured during the bloody battle at Chickamauga Creek. Banished to a hell on earth called Andersonville Prison, Travis struggles to endure in the face of starvation, disease and a sadistic prison guard.
When events come to a head, Travis must face down his fear and instead embrace an uncertain future. From the lowlands of Georgia to the great plains of the old West, he will seek to find a way to avenge himself and those he left behind…even if it takes the rest of time.
The penultimate showdown in “Swords of Flame” takes place on the Wilshire area of Los Angeles, on the top floors of one of the tallest buildings in the Miracle Mile district and L.A. in general. The sun is setting as Chris, Sarah and Mac approach in the news chopper… and all Hell breaks loose. We’re talking guided missiles and gatling guns tearing up condos in sky…
(leaving the rest for you to read)
I used to love visiting the West L.A. area and my job with Robinsons-May Department Stores in the late 1990’s took me there – we had several stores sprinkling through Los Angeles. While I was more naturally an O.C. guy (give me Laguna any day of the week), I thought the energy in L.A. was invigorating. Speaking of energy, I distinctly remember standing in a parking structure one afternoon with a coworker when all the cars around us began rocking back-and-forth. We realized that the building was swaying in a mild earthquake! Lasted a minute or so but very weird. Another Wilshire memory is visiting the famous La Brea tar pits – a couple of times. This is one of the best spots to learn about “real” L.A. history.
In another part of the story, Governor Thomas Gage was visited by a tall mysterious blonde stranger and offered something he couldn’t refuse. Gage, an ex-movie star, had a gorgeous home in West L.A. overlooking the Wilshire area and the 405 Freeway that he shared with his wife and daughter Angela. When everyone’s fate ends them up on the top of the shot-up building on Wilshire Boulevard, clearly something bad is going to happen. Chris and Sarah, our heroes, are from faraway Julian in the San Diego mountains but they need to make things right with the Gages as Swords of Flame comes to it’s climax!
Very excited to announce that my novel Swords of Flame is now available in eBook format AND paperback!
I must admit to being pretty excited to actually hold a copy in my hands…
