2018 Pacific Book Awards Winner – Best Fantasy
A larger-than-life tale of one man’s courage, sacrifice, and unyielding defiance to fight for his peoples’ freedom against those that would take it, and in this great struggle he finds friendship with three alien beings fallen to Earth that stand with him.
He is Panther Across the Sky and his world is fading. He takes all the hurt and pain a lifetime gives him and stares into his soul to face the greatest master he will ever know. Just a man among a dying people, he inspires his kin beyond all limit of mind and body in their outstretched and desperate grasp for freedom against overwhelming odds and the mighty nation arisen to the east in the early 1800s – America.
And along the way, he forges a bond with three alien beings fallen to Earth from a distant star, the Jhagir. Together they must find the courage to rise up against the swirling dark sea of blue jackets, muskets, and cannon fire that comes for them. It will take all their strength and spirit, and cost them more than they know, to break back the angry waves of a young nation that would devour a people and wash them away forever. And just maybe, Panther Across the Sky and the Jhagir can give rise to a peoples’ real hope for today . . . and what is to come. *Book One of planned two-part series
“Lon Brett Coon masterfully tells a story that sinks its teeth into the reader and doesn’t let go until the very end, even then the marks remain. It burrows deep into your mind and threatens to never leave. Every once in a while a reader comes across a story that needs to be read, and Panther Across the Stars is such a book; it demands to be read. His words perfectly pull the reader into his scenes, making them feel as though they are right beside the characters, hearing their voices. It’s truly magical to read a book that does this . . . I can’t wait to read it again.” -Pacific Book Review (starred review-Awarded to Books of Excellent Merit)
“Lon Brett Coon’s novel is a work of great imagination that begs to be featured as a movie. Readers will be thrilled with the images that fill the pages. The characters are unlike anything I have read before. . . . A perfect blend of epic fantasy and sci-fi that is brilliantly plotted and executed with skill! I loved the surprises the reader won’t see coming, and the exceptional writing that is filled with vivid description. It’s absorbing; an utterly satisfying read.” -Readers’ Favorite
