“Some writers are great stylists and will write beautiful stories that say nothing new or important. Other writers are great storytellers whose tales are exciting but mundane. Only rarely do we see a writer whose creates compelling, important stories with captivating prose. B.T. Lowry is one of those rare authors whose work is not only compelling and moving, but also important to read. “Fire from the Overworld” is a terrific debut!”
–David Farland, New York Times Bestseller, Lead Judge for one of the world’s largest writing contests.
It’s like Carlos Castaneda on Brhad-Bhagavatamrta. On the brink of change, these young mystics show the potency of the inner journey and its effect on the world around us. (B.T. Lowry is) a story teller with the capacity to help us regenerate our conceptions.
-Caroline Tharp, Vice President of Gaudiya Vedanta Publications.
This ground-breaking new book takes readers into the world of our ancestors and follows a young ‘ayur’, a spiritual leader-in-training, as she confronts bizarre changes that are happening in the natural world.
Yuvali is a student but she is called to use everything she has learned so far to go beyong what is familiar, and draw on her own inner knowing to figure out what to do to save her people.
I felt as if I was taking this journey with her. The writer takes us there with vividly described scenes. Heyowan is Yuvali’s companion student in this adventure. Together they try to understand the profound meaning of what they discover. No two people were more loyal to each other, or more courageous.
You will be surprised and intrigued by what they encounter. This is a deeply imaginative book with a spiritual dimension. Out-of-body travels, ageless secrets, warriors and shifting between worlds, form part of the journey out of crisis. This is what waits for you in this wonderful story.
-Vivien Adams, ESL teacher and councilor.
