A COSMIC BATTLE OF GOOD AND EVIL

NYT best-selling author David Wilcock recently said, “(Humans) are the center of a galactic struggle between the dark and the light that will set the stage for the future of human evolution.” Wilcock’s words aptly describe “The Game of Shepherd & Dawse.”

The Game of Shepherd and Dawse is a refreshing look at humanity's evolution through the origins of good and evil. The book offers a unique perspective into why some people seem full of love, while others seem weighted down with darkness. Why are some people bullies and others are bullied? Why do some people work as hard they can, while others prefer a more idle existence? The Game of Shepherd and Dawse offers a visionary and original perspective on where We came from and also where humanity is headed!

Charlie Clark is the 8-year-old neighbour and unsuspecting student of Mr Joe Sadsoul. Joe is a friend to Charlie but also a father figure and grandfather rolled into one. Joe teaches Charlie many things over their short time together, but the day Charlie really starts to evolve is the day Joe shares a story about a place and time called Shepherd Wood.

Shepherd Wood is a bygone era where everyone lives a more peaceful, gentle and harmonious way of life, a place of utopia and unimagined tranquillity where everyone is at peace with themselves and with their surroundings. Shepherd Wood is a place where the power of love flows freely.

Aman is the beautiful daughter of Sasha and Aiesha, who live in Shepherd Wood in harmony with the rest of their community. Little does Aman know that events soon to unfold in her life will change and shape the whole of humanity. Little does Charlie know, the events soon to unfold in Shepherd Wood would mirror events unfolding in his own life – events he would come to know as The Game of Shepherd and Dawse.

Much like The Alchemist or The Celestine Prophecy, The Game of Shepherd and Dawse can be read on many levels by a wide variety of readers, each taking away the lessons appropriate for them. The Game of Shepherd and Dawse includes elements of humour and wit, suspense, insight, wisdom and personal transformation – all told with a fable-like simplicity reminiscent of Roald Dahl.

Reviews

"The Game of Shepherd and Dawse is a thought-provoking fable of good and evil in our world. Each of us can find parallels in our lives, based on Aman, Nettie, Juju and the other characters of Shepherd Wood. A fun read which leaves you thinking about the characters and the book’s premise long after the last page."

“This book is very cleverly written, describing several complex issues, including rape, death, bullying and the very nature of what it means to be human, all in a shining new way. As a teacher, bullying is important to me. I am hopeful to use this book in my classroom, as I have several ‘Nettie’s’ in my charge and far too few ‘Charlie’s’. I especially like how the book illustrates that bullying can be overt (school boys taunting and tripping Nettie) or more covert and insidious (Sally Sour.) And what a magical place Shepherd Wood is–also a shining example to us of how we all could live in harmony with each other and nature–definitely a direction the world is headed.”

“This is honestly the best book I’ve read in a long time. Simple to understand, yet so profound. The Game of Shepherd & Dawse explores the motivation behind people’s actions and behaviors, what makes them the way they are. There most definitely are good and evil forces at work in our world today. This book illustrates how these forces play out through real life situations and characters who are easy to identify with. I highly recommend it.”

"Wow. What a great read. My only complaint is that there was not more of it. This really is one of those books where you just keep thinking "just one more page and then I'll get on" Can't wait for the next book from this Author."
