The Kingdom on the Edge of Reality
Would if you were able venture back to the Middle Ages without going back in time? Live in a place full of honor and chivalry; live in a castle, become a knight and travel on horseback?
Welcome to Albert Keane’s beautifully designed medieval kingdom nestled in a completely isolated river valley in the Canadian wilderness. Peaceful, happy, and prosperous, it takes nothing from the modern world, not so much as a single clock.

There is a castle, of course, and a monastery. There is even a pitch dark, rat-infested dungeon – because you simply have to have one if you are trying a rule a feudal kingdom!

Farmers work the land, artisans ply their trades, monks keep school and visit the sick, and nobody (well, almost nobody) misses the modern world at all.

So why has Jack Darcey – actor, wanderer, ex-competitive fencer – been tricked and seduced into paying a visit? And why hasn’t anyone told him that the only way to leave is a perilous trek across hundreds of miles of trackless wilderness without a compass or a map?

Because a tide of fear and violence is rising from the twisted ambitions of one of King Albert’s nobles, and Albert’s fortune teller believes that Jack could turn the tide – if he lives long enough . . .

Seamlessly blending medieval and modern elements, The Kingdom on the Edge of Reality serves up a heady brew of action, humor, romance and satire in a kingdom set apart in time and space where reality is the dealer’s choice.

The Kingdom on the Edge of Reality answers the question why the past holds the key to happiness that is definitely missing in our present day.  That it is possible to leave the present and live in the past.

The Kingdom on the Edge of Reality is chock-full of entertaining adventures involving knights, damsels in distress, miracles, fierce jousting and sword fights. Gahan Hanmer makes the characters instantly come alive on the page. His vivid storytelling transports you to a world of fantasy, romance action and adventure.

When Gahan began writing The Kingdom on the Edge of Reality, it had several different titles. Gahan creativity came from his background in theatre. He loved writing and drew on his previous experience riding horse, as a trained stage duelist and stage dueling teacher.

There were times where he put his book project aside. To contemplate, focus better and think of new ideas. Setting it aside for a time made the book ten times better. Gahan created living characters the same way he had created characters as a ‘method’ actor in his previous career in the theatre.

What Readers are Saying

 "I enjoyed The Kingdom on the Edge of Reality. I thought it strongly showed how interdependent we are on the people around us and how that connectedness isn't a bad thing. We spend so much time "alone" in the world, we don't often stop and look around at the people closest to us. Full of intrigue, sword fights, humor, and showcasing the strength of many against the one, this novel is a great read for fantasy lovers!"

Except from the Book
“Are you a good rider?” she asked.
It took me a moment to find my voice. “I have had a compliment or two in my time.”
“Then let’s see if you can catch me.” Snatching up the reins like some crazed and exquisite Amazon, she whacked her heels into Cassie’s flanks, and shot off across the meadow like a vision in a dream."
