    Default The Tether an Urban Fantasy Action Adventure Novel


    The Tether: None Good by Nick Davis - A Gritty Fantasy Action Adventure that starts all Stephen King, and ends all James Patterson...

    “Hello?” Sarah called out again tapping the phone buttons, “Can anyone hear me?”
    Then Sarah caught a sudden small movement out of the corner of her eyes, and she glimpsed something scuttling quickly across the floor. Instinctively she followed the movement back around the corner of the nurses’ station, and saw what at first looked like a bug move across the floor. Kneeling down she got a closer look at what was actually an unusually small crab.

    The strange looking creature stopped as if it was taking a good look at her. It was crab shaped with a dark blue coloring to it. The crab had one tiny pincer and one particularly large misshapen claw. Instead of a smooth shell that you would expect to see on most crabs, it shell was covered in small knots and what looked like barnacles. Sarah reached out to it; the crab-like creature scuttled back warding her off with its large claw.
    “What are you?”
    The crab-like creature continued to scuttle away from her and disappeared around the corner into the opposite corridor. Fascinated Sarah began to follow it when a familiar musty, obnoxious egg smell hit her nostrils and Sarah stopped her in her tracks suddenly filled with dread.
    “Where have I smelt that before?”
    She sniffed again the smell was even stronger, and she could hear a faint scuttling noise. Following the noise and the tracks of the retreating crab creature she turned around the corner and stopped short, her mouth and eyes went wide at the sight waiting for her.

    The entire corridor was filled with hundreds of the scuttling crab like creature she saw in the nurses’ station. They flowed around the frozen hospital staff like water and all seemed to be moving around aimlessly. Then as one the crab like creatures stopped and Sarah could feel a thousand beady little eyes staring at her. Feeling uneasy she took a step back bouncing off one of the inanimate staff members and lost her footing on the frozen floor and fell heavily on her bottom. The fall sent a sharp pain through her belly, making her groan. The scuttling crab creatures watched her intently and the nearest one started to move towards Sarah. She kicked it away instinctively with her foot and scuttled herself back on her hands. The creature skidded into its fellow before turning to look at her. For a moment there was total silence and then it was broken by the menacing sound of hundreds of pincers clicking. A hissing sound started to rise from the mass of crab creatures. Not wanting to see what would happen next Sarah’s feet slid on the floor as she tried to back away from the creatures. Finally finding her feet, she turned and started to run back down the corridor, hearing, rather than saw the malevolent tide of crab creatures start to scuttle after her.


    Sarah is a troubled student at a Baltimore private school. Through a series of nightmarish events she becomes the reluctant Keeper of a device called the Tether; that allows her to control an Angelic being called Paul and to cast will powered enchantments called Indices. As she races to uncover answers to the Tether's secrets, dark forces give chase to claim the device and Sarah for themselves...

    The Tether: None Good deals with Sarah's discovery of the Tether, and chronicles her journey through her first night as the Tethers Keeper. Sinister forces try to track her down to claim her and the device for themselves. She is aided in this journey by CT, the Grandson of the original Tether Keeper. Together with CT they race against the darkness as Sarah discovers the powers she can tap into and how to control the Tethers Angelic Guardian Paul.

    Set against the real back drop of Baltimore city this dark urban fantasy by Nick Davis. The novel follows Sarah through a helter-skelter one night journey into a reality that is disturbingly familiar, but has unnatural creatures stalking its shadows.

    Cool beans!!! Accept One, Book Two in The Tether series is less than 18 days away from its Official eBook release on the Kindle, Nook and other fine eReading devices.

    If you are a fan of Paranormal action adventures now is a great time to jump into The Tether universe, come and check it out by picking up None Good, the first book in the Tether saga and sets the stage for a none-stop action paranormal romp. Or as one reviewer put it 'Hollywood Blockbuster' feel to it.

    And I like that review a lot

    Now go and check out The Tether None Good

    Check out my full blog entry about the large problem I discover over at my blog at http://www.alt-world.com

    Well, about 5 days ago I received the proof copy and found out it has been printed on the wrong size paper, check out my blog on this over at http://www.alt-world.com

    Right now after some cover shenanigans everything is back on track, and soon I will be in receipt of the printed proof. Which once approved I will be holding phyisical printed copies of this book in my hand.

    Until then, you can pick up Accept One in your favorite ebook format, and thank you again

    Now, are intrigued to learn how The Tether Saga started? The first book The Tether None Good is still available as an eBook for all eReader devices (just follow the links at the start of this topic or in my signiature), or as a traditional printed novel. Find out how Sarah got hold of The Tether and what happened next.
