About The Book
Elji & The Galrass, The Essence Sagas
Elji, a boy from a village outside the city of Mehem discovers a “Galrass” a tool usually wielded only by those who understand its power. Perhaps it was left for him to find or perhaps it was just a random happening?
The Galrass embroils him in a struggle he never expected to be part of or even imagined existed. Dregar, a being from a different planet and galaxy ‘feels’ the boy’s interruption of the universal essence and takes him under his wing and so his journey begins.
Friendships are made and lost and many lives must be put in danger to usher civilization into its rightful place among the Universal essence.
Will Elji fulfil his potential and help save his world or will it fall into darkness?

Amy Mackie Sinclair
Very Interesting Premise
“Fantasy is my preferred genre to read. I like being transported into new worlds with different rules, societies, systems and laws. Elji certainly fulfils that purpose and then some more.
For a fantasy book, this one is fairly short and to the point. It is very fast paced — unfortunately, too fast paced at certain points when it needed to slow down and let us get to know the characters a bit more. However, it makes up for that with interesting characters, worlds and story! The action scenes were well done as well.“
“Sci Fi is certainly not my normal read, but strangely thoroughly enjoyed. Colin’s imagination, allied with his excellent use of vocabulary, ensures this to be an interesting, thought-provoking read.
It draws oneself into utilising one’s own thought processes, allowing one to fully appreciate the ins and outs of the saga.
For me also, I can see connections with some of today’s, how shall I say, conspiracy theorists, who believe, that our world, is in some way manipulated by major unseen forces, that influence / control world politics and events.“
Excellent storytelling with an enlightening undertow
“I really enjoyed this book, not just for the character development, mental imagery, the engaging storyline but also because here is a book with a deeper meaning.
Yes you can read this book as a fantasy novel, and it is a very pleasurable read to do so, the characters are strong and believable, and there is a good plot which leads itself to further development, a sequel, a trilogy, who knows, but there is something much much more which the writer is trying to convey, something very much in tune with the way you may or may not choose to live your life, a deeper meaning of life and the universe itself.
An excellent read.“
An epic saga that has so many twists and turns!
“Wow! So much going on in this book. The characters have been written with intricate detail and so much history to them. This first book gives you just an enticing entrance into these fantasy worlds and people, which have many elements of reality to them.
An absolute must read and I cannot wait for the next story to be released. Highly recommend“
Newbie to sci-fi reading.
“Usually I don’t read sci-fi, but I thoroughly enjoyed getting my teeth into Elji and his pursuits for harmony and universal peace.
There are lots of messages for us to take on board for a better world. I finished it soon as I couldn’t leave Elji alone. I was immersed in his world and story and often stopped to have a bit of a ponder.
Now I am now wondering what will become of those two as – yet – to – be- born babies? Mr Sinclair, congratulations on your first part of this saga. I look forward in anticipation for the next. xxxx“
