#BlogTour The Wandering God by Joshua Pantalleresco

 
 
 


Greater Worlds than These

Following the events of Stormdancer, The Watcher receives a vision in a dream of a city in turmoil. The dream haunts him, as does the voice that insistently repeats, 'Help me,' night after night. Leaving the safety of the tower of scientists behind, the Watcher and his friends embark on their final journey to locate the source of the message and come face to face with their most difficult obstacle yet: doubt.
Though they trust the Watcher, Kristen and the others can't help but fear that the voice in his head is driving him mad and leading them all to their deaths. Even the Watcher is afraid. He knows that listening to this voice risks everything he has obtained up until this point, but he can't help but continue to follow it, driven forward by curiosity and an  instinctive need.

Beyond volcanoes, rock people, and deserts of nothing but crystal, lies the City at the End of the World. And there, the Wandering God awaits...



 

 

 

Praise for The Wandering God

"Joshua Pantalleresco paints a stunning and vivid world through poetry and takes the reader on an adventure that is well worth a read." ~Christine Steendam, award-winning author of the Ocean series and Foremost chronicles.

 

 
 
now I stand in this space in the dream 
I know this cannot be real 
watching this whole story play in my head 
feeling the presence of someone 
something 
watching with me 
 
"Help me." 
 
I know the voice when I hear it 
it beckons me to another place 
 
the vision shifts to a city 
like the one I saw at the beginning 
it still stands 
surrounded by barrenness 
it thrives in spite of the growing emptiness around it 
vibrant defiance in an empty world 
those same structures I saw in the dream remain 
pointing up at the heavens 
daring the Wandering God to find them 
 
somehow I know 
that voice will be there 
waiting 
 
"Help me." 
 
I wake up 
gasping back to life from slumber 
happy to confirm it was only a dream 
 
I look around at the others 
sound asleep 
at peace 
dreaming their tranquil dreams 
 
I am thankful they came for me 
it is nice to know that in this empty place 
you are not alone 
 
I am glad to be with my family 
I wouldn't trade them for anything 
I close my eyes again I am not alone
