Born into the human world with a gift; a gift that brings him to the attention of powers both dark and light from the World of the Fey, it is his burden to defend all the world.

Sive, the goddess of battle, hopes that he may be able to change the fate of her people.The Fey are dying, killed by something beyond the boundaries of worlds, and Sive will do anything to save them. So she enlists the help of her trickster cousin Puck to guard the child, and watch him grow into his gift. But a dark power imprisoned by human and Fey, plots to destroy both worlds, and unmake all that they have created.

Can one boy stop the destruction, even if he is William Shakespeare?

Worth not only the money, but worth buying twice!

Have you ever had a book that so completely captured your imagination that you read it over and over again? Well Chasing the Bard might well be such a book for you. It was for me. That is one of the reason's I purchased this ebook although I all ready own it in hardcopy. Having the ability to take it with me wherever I go is well worth the cost.

This is a fantastic historical fiction/fantasy novel delving into the life of William Shakespeare and perhaps providing fictional inspiration for some of his work along the way.

I've been reading voraciously most of my life, and I have never run across anything remotely similar to Chasing the Bard. This is an extremely intelligent, well written novel. Prepare to get lost in it and make sure your battery is charged!

Thankfully, there is a sequel to this novel, and IMHO it is one of the most mind blowing pieces of fiction I've ever had the honor to read. Let's hope Ms. Ballantine is able to present Digital Magic (the aforementioned sequel) as an ebook soon!

Some iPhone games are too complex for me. By the time I learn all the controls, when to tilt, when to shake- I've just about lost all interest in the game itself. So I got to thinking who ever said iPhone games have to be complex? I certainly didn't.That's why I made Chase The Ball.… more
