When the World Falls Down

by

Meet Bethany Hannah Morgan. She’s an ordinary girl living in an ordinary world. Well, not quite… 

When Bethany’s best, and only, friend dies, her life is shrouded in grief. But when she discovers a mysterious new world through her cupboard door, she sees the chance to escape to Edimor, a galaxy of pirates, wizards, nightmarish monsters, space travel and mystery. 

Bethany quickly befriends Grollp, a troll pirate who has in his possession a locket said to harness great power. Edimor is under threat from a mysterious child and his carer, and Grollp intends to use this locket to save the world from certain ruin. With no intention of staying in her own world and desperate to escape events she does not quite understand, Bethany joins the fight, determined to save Edimor from its imminent demise. 

Can these dark and sinister forces be overcome?

Jon's first book, When the World Falls Down has just started it's journey with the Matador team. Book 2 of the series is currently in the editing phase while book 3, along with other separate ideas are currently being written.

Jon has created a truly exciting and visceral world that came to life instantly in mind, and made me want to find anything and everything out as Bethany does! I found it highly enjoyable to read, and found it so interesting to see what a world where creatures from storybooks as well as new ones lived in. I cannot wait to read where Bethany's journey goes next! A highly enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone

This book was a joy to read. Charmingly written, the narrator is as much a character as any of those whose adventures we follow through the weird and wonderful galaxy of Edimor. Bethany is a protagonist to root for. Her friends are your own, as together they get in and out of intergalactic scrapes, twirling pistols, quips and mustachios to boot. I laughed out loud, and was moved just as often, as when it comes to shots to the heart, the writer is just as trigger-happy as his space-piratical protagonists.

Five-star read. Would recommend to fans of Douglas Adams, and of the world-building fantasy genre. I anticipate the sequel.

A gripping read. Very imaginative.

Born in sunny Watford, Jon has dabbled with writing ever since he was young. As a big fan of both fantasy and sci-fi his stories have generally ended up on the more fantastical end of the spectrum. Favourite books include City of Dreaming Books and A Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy. If it's something a bit odd there's a good chance that he'll want to read it. Other interests include miniature wargaming, history, and anything super geeky. Along with writing Jon is also a trained actor, and annually appears in pantomimes, normally as the comic lead. When the World Falls Down is his first book, and part 1 of a series of 6. He has also started writing other fantasy and sci-fi work.
