Evensong (Meratis Trilogy Book 1)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Author Jeff Powell wakes up to find the impossible has happened. He is within his own novel—summoned into the fictional world of Feldall’s Keep by a spell he didn't write. One the House enchantress hasn't figured out how to reverse.
When the villain he's been struggling to write reveals himself, unleashing waves of terror and chaos, Jeff must use more than his imagination to save the characters he created—and the woman he loves.
Trapped within a world of his own creation, he must step outside the bounds of his narrative to help his characters defeat an evil no one anticipated, even if he must sacrifice his greatest gift. In the end, he has to ask: are novels really fiction, or windows into other worlds?
The Meratis Trilogy centres around author Jeff Powell, who wakes up in his sword-and-sorcery fantasy world. Initially an arrogant and close-minded character, Jeff has his eyes opened to a world of dragons, magic, and assassins. Faced with an evil he could never have imagined, Jeff is pushed to his limits and forced to rise to the most unusual challenges.

Might try your hand in storage.” “Not sure there’s anything worth wasting good armour on, Brian. Give him a sword and I’ll do my best to leave everything intact.” When Jeff said nothing to argue — still too tongue-tied

Are you stupid?” “No, I thought I was being practical. We can hardly see where we’re going. And it’s not going to get any lighter.” The sun had dropped further, lengthening the shadows. Under the canopy of trees, it was already twilight. “Which means no one else will
just watched and waited. She considered a moment longer and then raised her hands in resignation. “It’s your body. I suppose I can’t keep you here if you really want to try. But I won’t have you blaming me if something goes wrong.” “If you had a waiver, I’d sign one.” Maggie graced him with another look that said she had no idea what he was talking about but also really didn’t care, and then pointed at the black circle on the far side of the room. “Stand there.” Jeff followed her
you?” Their voices were music, an ebb and flow that dulled the mind. His blood reacted to the sound, his heart raced and slowed, like one hypnotised. He watched as they moved, their appearances shifting as much as the fire. Aya was first on his left and then on his right, and Lan disappeared altogether from in front of him to come up behind. A masterful display of distraction and disorientation. “We require your help.” “Again?” Kay’s mouth twisted into a smile, her green eyes sliding from Jeff
averted eyes nearly confirmed it. Maggie threw up her hands in defeat. “Raul’s, all right? It was Raul’s. I figured if we were going to protect ourselves against him, we may as well use his own tricks.” She leaned back against the table, arms crossed. “As far as we’re able to see, it’s the same spell he used for the barrier,” Brady explained. “Not nearly as potent, of course – you won’t be able to keep people away from you physically – but it’s the same principle.” A thought popped into his
