Farmington, CT – Emergency Room physician turned fantasy writer D.A. Mucci delivers an epic tale in his debut novel Ignatius and the Swords of Nostaw. Readers will be able to meet the book’s not-so-average high schooler Iggy, along with nearly 50 other enchanting characters, in October 2021 with its release from St. Bart’s Publishing of St Augustine, Florida.
Ignatius and the Swords of Nostaw is the first in an action-packed series perfect for readers who love an impossible mission led by an unlikely hero.
The coming-of-age story follows teenager Ignatius (nicknamed “Iggy”) who finds himself transported to a medieval world filled with magic. In the Kingdom of Skye, Iggy develops special powers and accomplishes quests in an effort to find his way home, fighting the evildoers along the way. While the genre is fantasy and the setting includes magic, mythological creatures, celestial races and different lands, action adventure is the undercurrent of the writing style, unveiling clues and surprises as the plot unfolds.
This YA fantasy is perfect for both teens and adults, as it gently reminds us that we are responsible for our destiny – and the most unexpected people can be the best teachers.
