But all too quickly, Yanna’s magic-hunting past catches up to her. Now, to save her friends and the dragon who partnered with her, Yanna must decide what she believes and who to trust.

What are experiences? Can we represent them as a set of measurable parameters that can be replayed? If we researched and succeeded in creating a perfect experience recorder and replay what will happen? "If only pictures and words could capture the beauty of the world around us!!" Vijay could have easily dismissed it with that philosophical view. Yet that simple often repeated sentence had got him thinking. Once the train of thoughts had started he could not stop it. He had thought about how in spite of all the technological advancements the very simple act of “recreating a moment” was still not possible by mankind. It was strange that we lived in a world where companies were running behind “creating NEW artificially induced virtual reality experience” but no one could record “a real-life experience” and replay it in a virtual reality environment with exactly the same precision and experience. We needed to see beyond the earth to know it was not flat. If we could pull ourselves out of this world of reality, what would we see?

The Seventh Dimension Series Full Box Set includes The Door, The King, The Castle, The City, The Prescience, and The Howling. The Seventh Dimension Series has won over thirty-five book awards. "Time is an illusion until God's appointed time," is the major theme based on A.W. Tozer's quote in The Pursuit of God: "A spiritual kingdom lies all about us, enclosing us, embracing us, altogether within reach of our inner selves, waiting for us to recognize it. God Himself is here waiting our response to His Presence. This eternal world will come alive to us the moment we begin to reckon upon its reality." The two young protagonists, Shale Snyder, an American, and Daniel Sperling, an Israeli, meet in the seventh dimension--a reality outside of time. Their love for each other is conflicted over their opposing spiritual beliefs that seem irreconcilable. The story covers many years as the young couple matures. The sixth book, The Howling, culminates with Biblical revelations concerning the future, Daniel's missing father, and a startling surprise. Allegory, foreshadowing, and symbolism are woven into the Seventh Dimension Series, and the heroism of the two protagonists is meant to inspire the reader. Love and forgiveness are virtues that both protagonists must learn. The Seventh Dimension Series begins in Atlanta, Georgia, but quickly moves to Israel. The reader soon finds himself immersed in the first century, and stories from the life of Jesus Christ intersect the story plot outside o ...

A cursed city shrouded in mist. The power to level an army. A deadly race against demons to find it.
Five hundred years have passed since Naradon, the mad emperor, ruled over the world of Arinthar. Unknown to all but a few, the emperor left behind a deadly legacy—seven towers scattered across the globe, each with the power to lay waste to an army.
Now demons have crawled up from the Abyss and taken one of those towers, using its power to summon more of their brethren. To make matters worse, a second tower has been uncovered and the demons want that one, too.
Yet that tower will not be taken easily. Shrouded in mist, the ancient city surrounding that tower has fallen under a terrible curse. All who once lived there walk the earth as undead, including the mad emperor’s wife.

Summer, 367 A.D. In a land of mystery and enchantment, in an age of Celtic gods, Highland warlords, Roman legions, and powerful druids, a young Pictish healer finds herself embroiled in an epic struggle between gods and men. The Celtic tribes of the lands we now know as Scotland and Ireland conspire to assault Hadrian’s Wall and drive the Romans out of Britain forever.
