2014 Mindquest Review of Books!

New Si-fi Book Review About Social Discord

"Schism: The Battle for Darracia," by Michael Philllip Cash, was approved for review in the summer, 2014 Mindquest Review of Books. The electrifying fantasy novel parallels today’s events about different ideologies, social disparities and unrest.

Family Social Turmoil

This graphic novel is about the separation of the social gap on planet Darracia and the lust for power. The plot mirrors today’s problems generated when the gap widens between the lower and higher social classes and the violent defending of differing ideologies. Numerous times in our history entrenched aging leaders are pitted against the younger generation wanting to create positive change. The novel introspectively introduces this classic battle in a unique setting and in thrilling detail.

The dwellers on the once peaceful planet named Darracia are in the beginning throes of social upheaval. Young Prince V‘sair, a half-breed whose mother is from another planet, is coming-of-age. He undertakes a quest to generate power by transmuting from three ether elements the haunting and elusive "Fireblade," and enters the quest to solve the enigma of the power of the heart’s mettle. V’sair’s uncle, Staf Nuen, is greedy for supreme power. It’s family member against family member as young V’sair deals with difference, coming of age and trying to deny Nuen the conquering of Darracia.

Science Fiction Fantasy

Schism is not a conventional science fiction novel. The story line combines copious elements such as coming of age metamorphosis on a planet much different from earth; political machinations, social unrest at the edge of a sword, cost of social gaps in a complex society, and fast-passed edge-of-your seat action with vivid characterization. "The teen (V’sair)...blazing white hair...whipcord lean...high forehead...wolf-like face...bright blue eyes..."

Have You Read Schism?


4.6 Stars on Amazon. 14 reviews!

Dad of Divas said, "A fast paced well-written book that keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. I did not know what to expect with this, but the author has done a great job at developing his characters and their relationship and juxtaposes this with the fight that they have with the world around them. The book was definitely compelling and kept me guessing throughout. This book is more than just a science fiction, but it is is this mixed in with a love story, action, adventure and so much more (a little for everyone)! This is the first book in an upcoming series and I for one am looking forward to see what the author has in store for us next!"

Rave Review For Schism!

Schism is getting some rave reviews on Amazon! Connie G said, "Schism The Battle of Darracia is a page turning exercise in adventure. Michael Phillp Cash creates an exciting new universe filled with spectacular species that can do all kinds of interesting things. Prince V'sair is a perfect young hero struggling to find his place in his rocky world. The King and Queen make for a poignant love story. Evil Uncle Staf Nuen is delightfully demonic and his family is a perfect foil highlighting his nefarious deeds. I loved V'sair's love interest Tulani. Their budding love was sweet. Also, Zaden and Hilde added great depth to the story. More than sci-fi, more than a love story, more than a mortality tale Schism has it all and I highly recommend it."

Did You Catch My Character Interview?

Today we have the cast from Michael Phillip Cash’s latest book, The Hanging Tree A Novella- It came out this year just in time for Halloween.

Goody Bennett- My favorite holiday!!!! (said with cackling laugh)
Host- Thank you Goody. I can tell you’re in good spirits!
All the ghosts laugh.
Martin- Good spirits that’s funny.  Well, we are all good spirits rather than being in good spirits.
Arthur- Always the purists, Marty!
Martin- It’s Martin, I told you, Martin.
Host- Alright, alright, lets do this interview. We have Goody Bennett and her granddaughter Claire directly from the 15th century, Murielle our Gibson girl from the Victorian period, Martin and Arthur- the Gold Coast students from Harvard. Adding to the mix is high school sweethearts Arielle and Chad and her dad Pete.
Arielle- Well I’d hardly call us sweethearts. We have decided to cool things off.
Host- I can see your steaming there Dad.
Pete- You bet. These kids are too young to be thinking about that kind of stuff.
Arielle- Well if you paid more attention to me than your girlfriend Belinda, maybe I wouldn’t go looking for trouble!
Host- Simmer down. I see Goody that you have your cat here.
Goody Bennett- Aye, That I do. She’s my best friend, Remedy, my cat. Love her to death! Ha ha. Get it, love her to death!
Martin- Most people won’t know exactly what you mean, unless they read The Hanging Tree and see the connection of Remedy and everyone’s fate. She has a propensity to use each and every one of her ninelives.
Host- I see, well, ummm.  Goody, just where does this name Goody come from. Does it mean your a ‘good’ person?
Goody Bennett- O’couse I’m a good person. I take care of all the people in our community, but Goody comes from the custom of when a woman marries and becomes a housewife, people refer to her as  Goody as in Goodwife and then family surname. I married Horatio Bennett, so Goodwife or Goody Bennett I be. ( She is puffing on a corn cob pipe.)
Arthur- Goody please put out that horrid thing. I despise the smoke.( he is waving his hands around)
Goody Bennett- (laughing and choking) Hardly matters to you- you don’t have lungs anymore!
Claire- Oh you are impossible Grandmam. Arthur don’t get her started. She’s going to start with her spells.

Powel House



An interesting house in Pennsylvania is the Powel House. Located in Chester County, PA the house dates back to 1765, although not famous until it was purchased in 1769 by Samuel "Patriot" Powel.
Samuel Powel would go down in history as the last mayor for the towns rule under the British government and the first mayor for the new ruling government of the United States. 

It was not so unusual that Samuel Powel and his wife, Elizabeth to host many of political persuasion at their fine home. Some of the more notable are George and Martha Washington, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and Peggy Shippen Arnold who was cousin to Elizabeth and wife to Benedict Arnold. 
It is a fact that the Washington's celebrated an anniversary there.

Their dining hall is notable as it is thought to be one of the first dedicated to strictly for dining as this was unusual at the time of the Powel's residence. The home itself was set to be demolished in the early 1900's but was saved by a group who resurrected it to its original splendor.
In the earlier 20th century the home was used as a warehouse but has since been returned to a home for touring.

Today the home host many tours including an annual New Year's Eve extravaganza that includes haunted ghost tours. The home has been reported to have been haunted by Peggy Shippen who had to go out of the public's scrutiny due to her husband's indiscretions. It is said she roams the very halls where she attended many parties.
