Oslac's Odyssey

By S.E. Ney

The Books

Book 1

When Dr Alex Oslac is tasked with archiving the Herabridge school history to celebrate its 500th anniversary, she encounters a past master of the school who died in World War 1. From that moment she is haunted by dreams of past lives in his company throughout history. Worse, when she looks up the details of those dreams she finds them all to be true. Is she going mad, or is there something else going on? Something so huge she couldn’t possibly get her head around it… Until after she dies.

Book 2

Alex and Daniel have moved on to new adventures, supported by Almega and the ubiquitous Omskep. In Anqueria, where the worlds of the imagination can be made real, anything is possible -- dragons, hyper-intelligent rodents, ghosts, robots on the rampage -- but at least they're finally home... aren't they?

Book 3

Without Almega to help them, in an entirely new world and with powers greater than ever before, Alex (Oslac) and Daniel (Eridar) face the future. They have a few remaining problems to solve, a universe to create containing a uniquely gifted species, and one final mystery to address, but as Oslac's powers leave her, she fears mortality is not just for those at the lowest level.

Book 4

The adventures of Daniel and Alex continue, but this time we are with them in one of their trainings. Gorthan is still in charge of Crada (The Anquerian Alternative) and Darthyn is one of his most respected dragons. Together with the humans who now live on Mithgryr, it’s time to explore the rest of their world. All is not well on Crada, however. Some dragons don’t care for the humans and want them gone, by any means possible. All they need to succeed is for Darthyn not to return from his trip.

Prepare to have your mind expanded

No one who enjoys an intellectually stimulating story that stretches our imagination far beyond the boundaries we are accustomed to in the more conventional fantasy literature will feel short-changed by ‘Entrapment in Oestragar’.

S.E. Ney has a deep passion for history as well as philosophy, and it is easy to see that a great deal of detailed research has gone into the recreation of the historic periods her heroes visit on their time-travelling exploits. It is a novel full of wit and surprising turns, which is rich in pithy dialogues and penetrating observations on the predicament of our 21st-century civilization.

A good combo!

It’s a great read! A good combination of science fiction, history, and a little bit of Rod Serling-esque story telling. It’s hard to put down once you start!

Strong characters

If you enjoy reading a good story, and have an interest in history, sci-fi, with a smattering of philosophy, this is a recommended read. Strong characters and narrative-do give it a go!

Adam Stangroom

The adventure begins!

From the first chapter where Alex is interacting with her students, researching the history of the college and they find the photograph of Captain Daniel Lancaster, my curiosity was stirred. He had died in 1917, and Alex is quite taken with his photograph. She feels a connection….but why? Then, she dies and the adventures begin!

Barbara Bridwell

Give it a go!

Sci-fi meets philosophy in an engaging and wonderfully humourous adventure, complete with strong and smart characters! A brilliant narrative that will answer questions you never thought to ask – give it a go!

Sian Wheeler

Can’t wait!

The whole book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. And if you are a fan of sci-fi/time travel etc you will enjoy it. Contains history and smattering of philosophy, good characters. This author has a good imagination and knowledge. I cannot wait for the next instalment.

Amazing Adventure

S.E. Ney has taken us back to a world that we visited briefly in her Oslac’s Odyssey trilogy. The world of the Mithgryr dragons comes alive in her fabulous storytelling! Her dragons are intelligent, humorous, and readying themselves for a new adventure on their home planet. With the help of a little human ingenuity, there are new worlds to discover and some mysteries to be solved. It’s easy to get lost in the pages of this book and amongst the world of the dragons. You won’t be disappointed! And if you have not read Oslac’s Odyssey trilogy yet, grab that once you finish this!


The Dragon story you have been waiting for!

The wonderful thing about Dragons is that is not necessary to read book 2 first to thoroughly enjoy the adventure she has crafted. When reading I can hear Darthyn’s deep voice in my mind! I wanted to fly with him. It is a wonderful world S.E. Ney has brought to life. Her characters have depth and I didn’t want my time with them to end. I can’t wait to see what happens next!


Fantastic Read

What an amazing author. Never ceases to amaze me of all the journeys we go on. It touches on all your emotions as the words put you right there as it is happening. I recommend it to everyone. I look forward to reading more of S E Ney’s books.

Thank you S.E. Ney for all the magnificent wonders and adventures that I have gone on reading your books.

A stunning conclusion

Ystrian Dreams, the final book of the “Oslac’s Odyssey” trilogy picks up the story immediately after the conclusion of the previous novel.

After Alex and Daniel’s transition to another level, and greater powers than before, we follow them as they create a new universe and the species to inhabit it. We also get to visit an interesting variety of fictional and historical settings as they solve the remaining problems. The fictional world-building is fantastic and the historical research impeccable. The story builds towards a surprising conclusion that is both inevitable and unexpected.

A fantastic and thought provoking adventure

Following on from her impressive debut novel the second book in S. E. Ney’s ‘Oslac’s Odyssey’ trilogy is even better than the first. The author introduces a variety of wonderful new characters and thought provoking scenarios as she weaves a story that draws you in and doesn’t let go. Highly recommended.

Couldn’t put it down. Just kept drawing me in and wanting to know more. Hope the series keeps going like this as I can’t wait to start the next one

As with the first book, I found it very captivating and hard to put down. Keeps you coming back for me. She puts you right there with every adventure. Looking forward to reading her next book.

Jean Tunnicliffe

Excellent, engaging read

After finishing book 2, The Anquerian Alternative I can honestly say it follows on seamlessly from book 1, Entrapment In oestragar. It draws you in deeper to the world of Alex and Daniel and leaves you wanting more.

This series is going from strength to strength ad I can’t wait to read book 3, Ystrian Dreams


Enjoyable read

A little slow to start, but stick with it and it gets really good fast.

Susan Johnsen

Unpredictable and thought provoking

Just when you think you know what will happen next, the storyline veers off in a totally unexpected direction! It was fun to read, and kept my attention from beginning to end.
It’s difficult to assign a genre to this book. It’s part history, philosophy, science fiction, and fantasy, with a few hints of romance thrown in!
This is certainly not cookie-cutter fiction! It will provoke you to imagine, and challenge your perception of reality. All in all, a great read!

Denise R. Martin

What a read!

What a great adventure! S.E. Ney has created something quite extraordinary. Every chapter is a surprise and a delight. The writing style involves you and you feel as though you are right there with the characters..seeing what they see..feeling their emotions vividly! I loved this story and look forward to reading much more from S.E. Ney. I highly recommend this book!!!!


Great Read!

The author has an immense love of history as well as science fiction, with a strong grasp of technology.

Great characters in some pretty disparate settings and adventures, with a mystery driving the entire story. “WHAT is going on?” seems to be the overriding theme, asking the reader to figure it out as clues are dropped like crumbs in a forest with each succeeding adventure. (I’m trying!) But the adventures alone are fun.

Loads of fun. Major mystery. Intelligent AND exciting. For the reader who enjoys sci-fi, fantasy, and world history.

You’ve GOT to read this book!

Vera Anderson

Will suck you in and not let you go. Be warned.

If it wasn’t for the fact I had work the next morning I would have read it in one sitting! It sucks you in and gets you so absorbed you may want to set an alarm to remind you of the real world. If you like history, future history, philosophy, sci-fi and amazing world-building then this is a book for you. Starting the next book as soon as I have the chance and can’t wait!

Amazon Customer

A fantastic read. Highly recommended.

This is a fantastic book that combines elements of history; SF and philosophy into a truly unique story.

The author’s passion for history and meticulous research into the time periods portrayed in the book shine through and provide a fascinating background to the story.

I am intrigued as to where the story is going to go next and looking forward to spending more time with the lead characters and their adventures in future novels.

S Gerrans

Happily entrapped in this novel from the very first page.

The characters are believable, although they are ‘not of this world’. I became involved with them very quickly. The plot is multi-faceted, but quickly draws you in. The author has a fine grounding in history and technology and excellent world building skills. There are lots of surprises! I quickly purchased the second volume, and recommend this one to anyone who enjoys a really good read.

Nancy Wolff

I didn’t know what to expect, but I’m delighted that I tried it !

The fantasy /sci-fi type of book is not something which I normally read, but when this first novel came to my attention, I decided to give it a go. I expected to read a few chapters, decide it wasn’t my cup of tea and send it back to Kindle Unlimited.
I struggled with the first few chapters,I have to admit, but by the time I got to the Titanic scenes, I was hooked. Shaz Ney has managed to inter-weave well-researched historical detail with time travel and fantasy worlds and I loved it !! Please hurry up with the next volume!

Steve Gregory


Loved it. Had to buy the rest of the series as soon as I finished the first one. Can’t wait till they arrive. Highly recommended

Amazon Customer


I find the book so captivating and enjoyable. It was very hard to put down. I live a book that puts me right there and S E. Ney does that for me I cant wait to see what happens next.

Jean Tunnicliffe

Fantastic Book

Loved this book! As soon as I finished it I had to start the second one. It didn’t matter to me that it was already after midnight and had to get up early for work. I would highly recommend everyone to read it
