On the fringe of the dead zone, Adan Drengle lives on his almond farm alone, preferring the company of plants to that of people. Adan has a very unique gift: he can commune with plants, communicate and exchange physical life energy. He could see the world as plants do. But the land was dying. Why? How soon? These are the questions that constantly tormented him because if he didnt commune with plants, he would die. When Adan is confronted by his neighbors because his farm is flourishing while theirs wither and die, he is forced to reveal some of his secrets. This leads him on a quest to find The Heart. Adan soon learns that the time has come to fight for the land, and those he loves. Praise for OUR DYING LAND: Our Dying Land is a thrilling dark fantasy with a unique premise and intriguing characters. Eco-horror at its finest! - Tim Waggoner, author of BONE WHISPERS Our Dying Land is not a standard fantasy quest: author McFadden blends in hints of his own background writing horror, as well as science fictional tropes. The whole combines to give a satisfying view of what may be lurking just under our feet. --SFscope.com Our Dying Land has a nice blend of mystic realism, hard sf, and fantasy elements that work well together to drive a thoroughly SFnal plot. A socially relevant book that still manages to be entertaining. - Bud Sparhawk, author of VIXEN and THE COMPLETE SAM BOONE
