"World Beyond the Maelstrom Gate" features a group of multicultural college students. They are brought together when Daniel, an aspiring astronomer in his sophomore year, discovers an error in the calculated path of a small meteor. Daniel and his roommates determine the meteor landed near a small town, in east Tennessee, and so they decide to go hunting for it. Daniel enlists the help of six friends Michael, Darick, Jamar, Diana, Liliana, and Kimoko, who pack up their camping gear and head for a weekend adventure. After a long day of searching, they finally stumble onto the strangest meteor Daniel has ever seen. When Kimoko grabs the odd object out of a pit and it begins to spins, then it disintegrates. The seven meteorite hunters soon find themselves in another world. They become other-worldly beings, dressing themselves in strange clothing and armor that they find. They make their way through sludge and slime, fight off huge moths, zombies, monstrous caterpillars, and hoards of rat men to name a few. In their other-worldly forms, each member becomes a valiant fighter, helping and healing each other along the treacherous way. Will they survive attack after brutal attack?
"World Beyond the Maelstrom Gate" is filled with descriptive action throughout its 500 pages. The plot continues as the group engages in battle after battle. This action packed fantasy has suspense and humor. The characters are believable and the creatures that must be faced are nasty and not easily destroyed.
