Three stories about three groups of heroes, in different places, at different times... but with one common fate!

WHAT IS THE SHADOWS, TREES & ODD MYSTERIES (STOM) SERIES ABOUT?

The STOM series chronicles the perilous journeys of our heroes in their quest to find the significance of the Naynab trees. Making shocking discoveries along the way, they come face-to-face with evil men, strange creatures, supernatural beings, and a dangerous fight for survival — not only of their own but indeed — of the entire world itself!

While each of the first three titles, can be read as standalone books, the story-line in the STOM series is staggered into three narratives: One about a ten-year-old boy called Oddy and his Grandpa in the story the Ghosts in the Trees, and another about three friends — Alan, Maya and Phudy, and their adventures in title the Madness Tree. Both these stories take place in the present time. The third story-line is different in that, it comprises of written accounts kept by a man — an explorer, called Rem Namdliv, who discovered strange facts and the significance of the Naynab trees in the late eighteenth  century.

All three story-lines are, however, connected and upcoming titles will reveal their convergence. Inspired by nature and the incredible world we live in, the STOM series is a fantasy mystery series (the author calls it, earth-fiction), with dashes of folklore, action and bone-chilling horror, that explore the mysteries of the Naynab.
