Toronto, Canada, October 16, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Toronto author and resident, Dani Stern, has published Here Today Gone Tomorrow, a contemporary fairytale for adults and young adults, available as an ebook on Smashwords and Amazon.
"Here Today Gone Tomorrow has all the elements of a fairytale, including a damsel in distress, a knight in shining armour, a wizard and a dragon," says Dani. "But it brings these elements into the present day, with a unique view of magic and how it works as well as a twist on ancient legends."
The story begins in the present day, a time when magic and noble warriors are all but forgotten – relegated to television and video games – with the resurfacing of an evil dragon. The only hope to destroy it lies in two homicide detectives fulfilling the roles of knight and wizard, as a modern day fairytale is set in motion. Both men are seemingly unlikely choices – one the son of a mob leader and the other, an anti-social, yet humorous, bear-like man. While Jordan must learn the art of sword fighting and discover what it means to be a hero, Mark’s task is even more difficult. He must believe in, connect with and learn to work with magic to become strong enough to help his friend take on an adversary like none they have even seen before.
With the date for the battle between man and beast set, Jordan and Mark are on a tight deadline. Mark finds that he must throw away all traditions and use creativity and humour to connect with magic. The men discover a magical realm hidden inside our own, where ancient legends and mythic beings come to life.
