The Kakos Realm: Grinden Proselyte eBook
The first book in a gripping new series. The Kakos Realm is an original fantasy setting that sets the stage for this supernatural epic. Angels, demons, werewolves, dwarves, elves, and men all collide in a realm more fallen than Earth. The betrayed warrior Rashnir is presented with a choice and the knowledge that within seven years, the entire realm will be destroyed. He joins with a new group of friends to lead the “heretics,” believers who oppose the Luciferian church, on an exodus out from the path of destruction and in search of those others who believe.
In the days of Mahalaleel, great grandson of Seth and ancestor to Noah, this twisted realm was created. Supernatural in nature, the basic laws that govern the very reality of existence have been perverted by the corrupt one who designed it. Mankind was drawn to this new creation where they supposed that they had freedom, but they were really shackling themselves with chains forged of impiety.
In the Kakos Realm, a whole separate set of rules exists; it is a place of mythology and magic, governed by dark and evil powers. This realm has been cut off from its sister land, Earth, since the flood in ancient times, and demon over-lords have ruled it ever since.
But time has run out, now, and in seven years this evil realm will be destroyed, regardless of the presence of the warrior Rashnir, or his "heretic" friends. But before they can embark on their exodus, they must survive the massed armies commanded by the dark prophet Absinthium and his deadly Acolytes who gain control of the mighty Dragon Impervious.
This is a realm where Satan was given creative freedom; here, anything goes...
"...the book tells a powerful story in an original fantasy setting that works both as the beginning of an epic and as its own piece. We are left with both the resolution of the major issues raised here and with the anticipation of the next story...
.Also of note are the descriptions of small-scale combat that appear throughout the book. From Rashnir's first and fateful fight with a superior officer in the mercenaries guilds to his one-on-one melee with the Dragon Impervious, the blow-by-blow descriptions capture the action..colorfully and dramatically. We are there in those fights, sometimes holding our breath, truly wondering who will prevail and at what cost.
The descriptive gems that appear scattered through the pages are something that cannot easily be taught, and there are moments when the scenes are brought vividly to life through these... this could be a superior fantasy novel...”
