Anaxiunara: One Brief Eternity by David DeRosa
This book could be described as genre-bending and maybe a good introduction into fantasy for those used to reading romance or drama stories. On the opposite end of the spectrum, it shows those fantasy lovers that there is more to a story than fireballs and body counts.
What is really special about this book are the relationships that DeRosa created within the pages. While it is a fantasy book, many times, all of the fantasy elements melt away, and you forget that interaction happens between elves, dwarves, and dragons because they all feel very human.
It speaks great volumes to the writer that can get readers to forget everything else and focus on the dialogue between characters. There is a fair share of action and adventure in this book, but the time between these scenes is where this book stands out.

He’s a seven-thousand-year-old teenager, an extraterrestrial marooned since the Bronze Age, waiting patiently for humans to advance in science and social graces. A few unsavory characters know what he is and want what he knows. They have their eyes on him.
At the dawn of the twenty-first century human science is close to offering the immortal what he needs to get home. While Homeland Security, a rogue C.I.A. agent and a would-be arms dealer all try to steal his research, a handful of trusted friends join him in a race to complete his work.
He’s let secrets slip before and has witnessed ensuing disaster. So, when the arms dealer and the rogue agent get hold of a mathematical formula that could destroy us all the ancient kid must ruin their plans.
Jake is certain that what he wants is just around the corner, and surprised when he finds it right in front of him. He’s determined to leave this world until a friend reminds him that life is not about where you are. It’s about who you’re with.

The Orphaned Princess by David DeRosa
The battle was ended. The last dragon put out the fires and divided the people into factions. Gemite and Sylvan he charged with responsibility of their world, saying, “I will not save you again, from your recklessness.” Then he made a prediction. “A wizard of mixed blood will end your separation when a warrior of human blood restores justice in her land.”
After many ages, human encroachment calls Gemite and Sylvan to examine this new race. Elves were once aggressive and violent. So now, humans fight each other with no regard for things destroyed. If they learn to conjure the magical fire, the world will again lie in peril. Sylvan and Gemite still have a few petty bigotries yet to overcome. So, while the last great dragon sleeps, it is up to the children of his prophecy to avert disaster.
Two children (Theo and Kynthia) on a journey to become the heroes of prophecy, find that even characters out of a legend need help. Out of a land ruled by a despot, they are propelled toward a destiny that has been foretold. Predictions, however, are a funny thing. They never unfold quite the way the predicted predict.

About Author David DeRosa: Born in November of 1959, David’s interest in writing began with music and poetry. It remains his first love, but storytelling in novels offers a broader range for character development. “The heroes we love and the villains we hate deserve the rich background that a book can provide.”
His appetite for books didn’t start until well after high school when his wife introduced him to fantasy novels. “Ya see, they didn’t have dyslexia where I went to school. They just called us stupid.” He didn’t believe that, of course, but reading was and remains an effort.
Reading for pleasure, he learned, is different than assignments. “There’s no time limit. I read what captures my imagination. Perhaps not as fast as the ‘A’ group, but fun is less so when it’s rushed.” He encourages kids with the same stigma to find something they enjoy, something that draws them in, and discover things that can only be imagined.
Now he reads history, fantasy, science, philosophy, poetry, comedy, and occasionally (just for fun) The Bawdy Bedtime Reader. It’s a big book of dirty limericks.
“The important thing is to find what you like and read, right?”
