Lucifer grows restless. A sense of unquiet gnaws at his ether. He seeks something. Something more….
Lusting for the power to create worlds and to rule races inferior to his own, Lucifer trains the Malakim in the art of swordcraft, unknowingly preparing them to aid him in his attempt to usurp King Elyon’s throne. Bearer of a sword that can slay a spirit-lord, Lucifer grooms Michael, his favored lieutenant, as his second-in-command. But Michael starts unraveling the mystery behind the secrecy, and is forced to choose between his comrades and loyalty to his King.
History and fantasy collide as the ultimate struggle between good and evil rises in this 20,000 word novella, Dawn of Shadows, the first chapter in the epic supernatural novel, Prophecy of the Heir.
The fantasy genre is always fascinating to me. But this takes the genre to a whole new level. The writing is superb. The characters are full of depth and are captivating. This book blew my imaginations. Added to the fact that this plays out in biblical realms and on biblical themes, this book takes the epic genre of fantasy to a whole new level of “biblical epicness”. Great read.
A couple years ago, I read an earlier version of this and liked it very much. But then this updated version came out and was even better. It’s much like Paradise Lost, except told in a fantasy-style setting that immerses the reader into the angelic side of things. Note this is just the beginning chapter of a much longer story.
