IR Rating: 4.8/5
“Michael Breen packs a lot into his novel. As a fantasy thriller, EVER THE NIGHT ROAD has an Indiana Jones vibe combined with the 'lawless frontier' themes of a good Zane Grey western. …[It] is a fantastic adventure tale filled with believable characters, striking imagery, and enlightening allegory. An excellent read for fans of character-driven, coming-of-age fantasy.”
Mike Breen is an indie fantasy writer. He has a background in theatre (favorite playwrights tend to be a bit dark and Irish). He used to write simple songs with good friends on a Gibson Les Paul Special, and still listens to the same punk bands that he did in high school. Mike likes truthful fantasy, books that are fearless, and British TV shows. When not writing, he is usually thinking about writing or trying to figure out how a mandolin works.
Ever the Night Road, Mike's debut novel, is a coming-of-age story featuring female protagonist Dagny Losh. The teenager's longing for adventure becomes a high-stakes quest guided by the stars and ancient myth, as she and an array of companions encounter danger from both criminal and supernatural forces. Along the way, Dagny will discover the bonds of true friendship, young love and the depths of her own bravery in a brutal and enchanting world.
