PURSUIT by Jim Murdoch

PURSUIT, a metaphysical fantasy
by Jim Murdoch

Do Dragons exist? Do our dreams become part of our reality? Einarr, a young warrior, follows a riddle from his father to find the treasure of his life. Gaby, a little girl and passionate reader, makes an amazing discovery within the pages of an antique book. Pat climbs a mountain to escape overwhelming changes in his life and his sick pregnant wife.

Set in three different time periods, we accompany the protagonists and their individual stories through the challenges and discoveries that change their lives forever. Although separated by time, their adventures and encounters are intricately intertwined across the years. What all of the characters in this book have in common may change your life forever. The mystery, adventure and discoveries in Pursuit will have you claim your very own destiny.


Jim describes himself as an author in a closet, meaning it took him almost fifty eight years to finally realize that writing is what he should be doing. On the other hand, anything written before now probably would not be the same as that written today which draws on his rich experience. The short and sweet is Jim was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, saw the city burn in the seventies, was swept off his feet by Swiss charm, got married and moved to Switzerland in the eighties. He had an unshakable religious foundation which was shaken. This led to a paradigm shift of galactic proportions. Basically his new world view sees everything and everyone connected by energy as everything is energy. A path of self development studies followed where he delved into many subjects including metaphysics and, yes, dragons.

With his wife, Katharina, he co-authored their self-help story Wings of Change. This got him thinking about writing fiction instead of boring self-help books. Taking inspiration from The Alchemist and The Celestine Prophecies Jim searched for an idea. It came unexpectedly through the experience of a friend which led to Pursuit, a story of dragons, dreams, discovery and destiny. You can read more about the inspiration for the book on his blog where you'll also find some excerpts.

The legends of Mount Pilatus mentioned in this book were taken from the Pilatus official website and other sources. Believe them or not. It is the author's conviction that such legends and myths have originated with some story or other. Do dragons exist? Let the reader decide.
