On the planet Darracia, an ever-widening social gap between its inhabitants is causing turmoil that is fracturing a once peaceful world.

Will the energy of the Elements guide the young prince to his true destiny or will Staf Nuen conquer Darracia?



Dii, an Amazon reviewer said:
"Does intolerance of people’s differences go beyond our planet? What of jealousy and the quest for power? Is it thicker than blood? Schism by Michael Phillip Cash is a fascinating and intense dark fantasy/Sci-fi filled with everything that makes for excellent, magnetic reading! Prejudice, love, greed, trust, the lust for power, deceit, cruelty and bloodshed, it’s all here in the first book of what looks to be an amazing journey to another planet somewhere in the heavens.
The ever-widening gap between the different classes is causing unrest to the once peaceful plant of Darracia, the haves get more, the have-nots lose what little they have and are beginning to fight back. Considered inferior to those around him, young Prince V’sair struggles to be seen as warrior material, in spite of his smaller stature and different skin coloring. He is a half-breed, part Darracian, part Planta. Smart, filled with knowledge from books, he still longs to feel the power of the Elements in the Fireblade, a weapon that can only be wielded by one blessed with a warrior’s heart. Forbidden to risk his life in a quest to find the powerful weapon, V’sair chafes at being trapped between wanting to help his people and needing to obey the King and Queen. But there is more to the unrest among the classes than meets the eye. Someone nearby is a traitor and it may be up to V’sair to save his world, but how? Unprepared for what awaits him outside of his castle, V’sair finds strength in love, honor and in believing in himself as he stands against the odds and the evil betrayers around him.
No doubt about it, Michael Phillip Cash can build a world with depth and clarity and then populate it characters that one can see in their minds. Soar above the clouds on a flying horse-type creature, feel the tension, feel the fear and wonder of V’sair as he runs into danger, faces near death and the love of a girl whose skin is as red as his is blue. Mr. Cash introduces each character with ease and enables the reader to see who to watch for, who to root for and who to hiss at. He has created magic with his words that transport you into another world as good battle evil in the takeover of Darracia and a boy becomes a warrior with heart. As the foundation from which this series will build, Schism is a powerful testament to the power of the imagination when guided by a masterful storyteller."


Book 2, Collision: The Battle for Darracia (Book 2) (The Darracia Saga) is now available on Amazon.

After the success of his first three books (Brood X, Stillwell, and The Hanging Tree) Michael Phillip Cash is fulfilling a dream and creating his own epic fantasy world. The third book in the series is coming soon!

I want to thank all of you that review my books and leave such great reviews. I also want to thank all of you that purchase my books too. You are all very much appreciated! I have had some amazing reviews on Amazon, Goodreads and personal blogs as of late. I want to share some of those with you.

" I am not a science fiction fan, or at least, I wasn't. Schism had everything I wanted in a book. Romance, conflict, adventure, and good vs.evil. There was plenty of adventure and a lot of big surprises. The biggest surprise was how much I enjoyed it. I was eager to see what would happen in Collision. Wow. I wasn't disappointed. In this book, we learn more about Zayden and how he faces life after losing so much. He is troubled and meets someone new. It isn't easy, but he finally lets his guard down and the reader can see hope and romance blossom. Prince V'sair grows up and lets go of people he loves and tries to have hope that they will return. It is a new world, but evil and change are on the horizon." ~Jules


5 Stars!
"Science Fiction has long been a convenient way to thinly disguise social commentary in a way that allows them, sci-fi writers, to get away with it.

So it is with Michael Phillip Cash’s, Schism: The Battle for Darracia. Here you have V'Sair, a mixed race kid (from Darracia and Planta) who happens to live in a peaceful, relatively tolerant society, but who is struggling to find his identity. Along comes his evil uncle who wants to return to the older more traditional ways. Oh did I mention that V'Sair happens to be the prince, and his parents, the king and queen, happen to be the mixed race couple. V'Sair must learn to control the elements and wield the Fireblade to rescue his parents and defeat his uncle.

Super subtle? No. Effective and engaging? Yes." ~Heather

"This conflict is along the complex story telling of William Shakespeare mixed with the power struggles and tragedy that nearly all Shakespearean plays had.

There are many characters all whom are major players at one point or another throughout this book and like any good book it will have surprises throughout including the end.

Michael Phillip Cash has done it again, and I can hardly wait for the second book in this series." ~Tamirisc

"Michael Phillip Cash delivers a thrilling, entertaining story that is not only made for the big-screen, but is phenomenal in every aspect. I enjoyed this gripping story so much, I had to read twice. "STILLWELL" grabbed my attention in the first chapter, and is indeed one of those books we label as an 'all-nighter.' I was drawn into the story immediately for a few reasons. One reason was that after residing in Long Island 45 years, I found the setting in this riveting story to be picture-perfect. As I read on, I could see the fog, and feel the mist in the cold air, as if I was at the manor. Most important, the author has a gift, which is his unique imagination, capable of drawing the reader in like a magnet as we experience a roller-coaster ride of emotions. The quality of Michael Phillip Cash's creativity is nothing less than 'impressive." ~Geraldine
------------

"Like many books the title does not convey how this story can draw you in, wanting to know more, until you finish the final page. I liked this book for a couple of reasons. First it was not overdone with the paranormal. The haunting added to the story but did not overwhelm the story it played a supporting role. It is a book about a normal person dealing with things that are normally beyond our senses. Second, at the end of the book I felt satisfied. The different story lines entwined together and were brought to a close with nothing left hanging." ~Captiii

------------
"Cash's writing is clean and smooth and his descriptions so vivid you can feel every emotion Paul Russo is having. The scenarios are realistic and even when things venture into the paranormal the author is able to keep it believable and the story flows seamlessly. Secondary characters are well thought out and make the tale that much richer.

It's entertaining and thought provoking with a perfect dose of the paranormal and mystery. A love so strong it transcends time and an excellent and somewhat surprising ending makes Stillwell: A Haunting on Long Island one of the good ones and well worth your time." ~Terrylynn




5 Stars!
"This is one of those books that you can read very quickly because it keeps your interest the entire time! This tree has seen much and is haunted by cursed souls. I love how all of the stories are related, though the original story about the "witch" was my favorite part of the tale. This is a great book to read at any time of the year, but it would be especially fun to read at Halloween." ~Christy

---------------
"Author Michael Phillip Cash, in addition to providing an intriguing paranormal novella, addresses the question whether or not we are victims of past events or if we have the ability to control our own destiny.

This begins the karmic attachment to the tree of five individuals. Readers will want to know if Arielle will give into macho Chad's sexual demands, and if the curse will ever be broken- how and by who?

Best selling author Michael Phillip Cash is a master of fantasy, suspense and the paranormal. It's a stimulating read which kept this reader glued to the pages." ~B.



5 Stars!

"What would you do if any type of bug invades and takes over the world?

WOW....I am speechless. I also lost a nights sleep due to not wanting to put this book down. This book was creepy, and yet extremely addictive. It's not your normal Paranormal Horror Story, but a horror story that could actually happen.

This story is phenomenally well written and very fast paced. Each page turned just sucked me farther into the story. I was shocked and intrigued by the twists and turns of the book. This author has a way to make you feel like you are watching a movie in your head while reading this story and this author also has a way to keep you entertained and yet on the edge of your seat from beginning to end." ~Jenny

---------------
"The build up of this book was unbearable... but in the best of ways. The impending cicada invasion was not to be taken lightly in this story. With a family about to start anew with a new born child, who would actually take something like a brood of cicada seriously when they were so happy? The outcome is not what was expected from this young, new couple. Keeping you on the edge of your page, this book was exciting to say the least!" ~Andrew
