The war in Iraq ended for Freddie when an IED explosion left his mind and body shattered. Once a skilled gamer as well as a capable soldier, he’s now a broken warrior, emerging from a medically-induced coma to discover he’s inhabiting two separate realities.
The first is his waking world of pain, family trials, and remorse—and slow rehabilitation through the tender care of Becky, his physical therapist. The second is a dark fantasy realm of quests, demons, and magic, which Freddie enters when he sleeps. The lines soon blur for Freddie, not just caught between two worlds, but lost within himself.
Can he let patient, loving Becky into his damaged and shuttered heart? It may be his only way back from Hell.
“Fantasy and reality walk hand in hand for a wounded veteran in this poignant story of love, loss, and faith... Litwack’s writing is flawless, as is his ability to mix genres. ...Along the Watchtower would be a perfect choice for those in the service or for those who support them, or for anyone who likes a great book that intertwines reality and fantasy.” ~ Clarion Foreword Book Reviews (5 out of 5)
“It is both gritty reality and magical fantasy, and filled with both love and beauty, and ugliness and despair, but ultimately it is a story of healing, of burying the past, finding hope and taking control of the future.” ~ Awesome Indies Book Awards, Seal of Excellence
