Jack the Fish Boy Vessel of Life: Our world holds two bodies of water with the same echoing name. The first Dead sea is a Jordanian lake of salt located in the heart of the Middle East. The second Dead sea is located somewhere in the inner-world south of the Atlantic sea, between Africa and Antarctica. It is a place of mystery and wonder for Jack William Thomas, a young British boy grieving with emotions from the loss of his mother, while a distant father searches for means of communication with his son. The year of the Great War is born. Jack secretly boards his father's sailing ship during Germany's declaration of war upon the great British Isles. During a menacing storm, Jack is lost at sea, before he is befriended by many different sea creatures, including a beautiful girl named LiLi whom is half human, and half fish. With daring escapes, Jack's life is quickly turned upside down when he's forced to engage in two very different wars at sea. Join Jack as both grueling wars come together in one grand, dueling spectacle. Follow his newfound faith, as it is tested in the blackness of a mad underworld filled with fiendish creatures preventing his return to his native Welsh homeland. This is Jack's first journey for all ages to enjoy. It is the very essence of a well defined, classic story of good versus evil set in the past, present, and future. A magical fable with a twist of faith to help guide the human spirit.

New author, Jesse H. Colbath IV has created a fantastic story that is destined to become classic. Jack the Fish Boy - Vessel of Life is visibly creative and quite stunning to the imagination. This is a great journey for both young and old to enjoy. A good versus evil fantasy story with historical events, along with great battles to visualize. This is the type of book Hollywood should be adopt, rather than remake older movies.
I will recommend this excellent book to all of my reader friends and family. I want more!!!

About the author (2009)

Jesse H. Colbath IV spent 17 years in a Law Enforcement career field before pursing his lifelong dream and make the transition to a full time writer. Jack the Fish Boy is his first published novel, and is the first book in a three part historical-fantasy series to surely captivate the hearts and minds of both young and old alike.

The author is currently living in the Lone Star State. Austin Texas has been his home for 16 years, and enjoys every minute of it.  " There is no greater city right now, for a creative artist."  He enjoys traveling throughout the country, and relishes meeting new people from all walks of life. His hobbies include; sports, music, creative art, politics, reading/writing, boating/skiing, and watching old cheesy Sci-Fi / Horror movies.

As a dedicated environmentalist, and a member of the  " Save Darfur " project, the author states, "Our goal is to help the movement of world governments and end the genocide in the Sudan region of Africa. Please help with this movement's cause! " 

The author is currently finishing the second novel series entitled;  Jack the Fish Boy ~ Black  Salt,  which will undoubtedly be a darker story, with a richer storyline embracing a twisted and epic love story filled with villainy and heroic battles to surely rattle the reader's mind. He is working diligently to complete the manuscript for a 2010 Fall release.

In conclusion, Jesse H. Colbath IV  lives spiritually day by day, and follows an old saying,  " A goal without a plan, is just a wish."

" Please enjoy my first book in the series,  Jack the Fish Boy ~ Vessel of Life."
