Chase the Morning, by Michael Scott Rohan
Steve is a Import/Export executive in a nameless British city. His impulsiveness, curiosity, and good turn to a stranger lead him to learn of a greater and more magical world just around the corner from our own. Our world, the Core is the center point of a seemingly limitless sea of lands of magic and adventure.
Voodoo, strange magic, demigods, and sea adventure a la Horatio Hornblower are the order of the day, as Steve, at first unwillingly, learns more about this strange secret outer world on its magical high seas.
Hollow inside, Steve grows and learns what it is to be a man and take responsibility through his adventures with his odd, new companions. Certainly, the book at its main is the trope of "modern man thrown into a fantasy world" but the intersection of those worlds, their dependence on each other, and the vividness of the descriptions (especially the battle scenes) make the novel work. I know now why my friend Scott seeks out novels from this British author, even though they can prove difficult and expensive to obtain here in the states.
Recommended.

A Good Workout for the Imagination Oct. 5 1997
By marco67@worldnet.att.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I enjoyed the concept of the world that exists somewhere between the edge of reality and a magical world that evokes a time from years past. The book manages to tread this line and cross it from time to time throughout the course of the book without too much trouble. Mr. Rohan's writing is a good workout for the imagination and fills the mind with vivid imagery. A good book about a man that escapes his reality for a trip in a fantasy world where he's the hero and let's you come along for the ride. Worth the extra effort to try find this one. I'm ordering the sequel myself as soon as I'm done writing this.

Great Concepts and Orginality! Jan. 24 2002
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
What I liked about this story is Rohan creates a concept that has so many possibilities that he could write and endless series of books off it(here he has written 4 so far). I didn't know what to expect next in the story because it was totally different then any other fantasy I've ever read. Highly recommend though I would have rated it higher if it was easier to get a hold of the complete series here in the United States. I would more highly recommend his Winter of the World series, but this is definitely a great read too.

A transport of delight July 9 2000
By "ly_reese" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you can get hold of this book, do. Rohan manages the difficult 'crossing of the line' between the real world and Fantasy with consumate skill. His wordsmithing is superb when it comes to crafting an 'almost visible' fantasy world. The book takes the reader into a world of tall ships and then into the blood and passion soaked heart of the 16th century Caribbean - and then into the heart of voodoo. The characters - such as Gyp the pilot and Mad Mall are vibrant. I loved it. The plot twists and shakes and allows us windows into the frailties which make us human. Yet it is a triumphal book. It's time it was reprinted.
A Wonderful Ride in the Fantasy World Oct. 15 1999
By Alea Logan (alea_logan@prodigy.net) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book has to be one of the best Fantasys I have ever read. It shows you the normal world with a normal person you can relate to and then pulls you along into a Fantasy world of wonder and excitement. Steve is a guy we are all like sometimes and it makes us realize how wrapped up in our own lives we can get. But then Steve finds something to pull him out of his own comfortable world and into "reality"(in a sense) by pushing him into Fantasy, he sees who he truly is. In way we all can relate to this, we all need a little adventure in our lives. So since we won't really ever find ourselves in the Rim one day, we can read this book to take us there. Rohan does a great job in all aspects of the book. He gives great descriptions of everything without managing to bore us, the entire book is fast paced and filled with amazing adventures, humor, and even romance. It keeps you guessing and wondering while pulling you through a rollercoaster of emotions. It's a wonderful ride in the Fantasy World.
