The Eternity Train.
An idea came to my head one day. I thought to myself, ‘imagine a book based on a train that cannot stop’… And from this seed of an idea, The Eternity Train was born. This is a book I am writing primarily for my students—a young-adult fiction that blends together all of the favourite aspects of the books I grew up enjoying as a child: in many ways, it is an amalgamation of many of the tropes found in Harry Potter, Skulduggery Pleasant, The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner and more. Here’s what you can expect to find…
Daffodil is a young girl who finds herself aboard a typical, unassuming train at Moor Street Station. She doesn’t know it yet, but she has in reality stumbled upon The Eternity Train. Join her as she tries to find her way out of the prison-like vehicle that generates more questions the more she explores. How are there so many compartments? Does it never stop? And most importantly, is there any way to escape the train? Mysteries abound, cities hidden within, and with tantalizing new secrets in every carriage, this is an adventure like no other.
The book is specifically designed for students to build their descriptive skills and expand their vocabulary all with an engaging storyline. I am hoping to release the completed book by 2022. But not to worry! There some sneak peeks below! You will meet one of the main characters, Riyul, in Chapter 1.
