|Plot Summary of Red|
Westbow, Jun 2004, 19.99
Every time Thomas Hunter falls asleep, he switches realities to and from our world where he failed as an author and a forest realm where he serves as a great military leader to a tribe. He does not even keep the same body as in our reality Thomas is in his mid twenties while in the forest domain he is forty. The common threads between his two “orbs” besides Thomas is both dominions face total destruction with the countdowns running out and he is the last hope in each because information he gains on one side he needs for the other side.
On our earth, the hero faces terrorists ready to release a pandemic virus that will eradicate everyone who fails to obtain the antidote. On the forestry world, the desert dweller hordes threaten to overwhelm his people. Only he stands in the way of dual genocide.
