Descrição da editora
What happens when you walk into a painting of Hell and find the Devil, and still don't know that it's all your mother's fault?
Twelve year old Leon finds his mother missing from her studio and inadvertently becomes tangled up in The Painted World inhabited by Night Tormentors and controlled by the Prince of Tyre who looks set to destroy Earth and make a new world ruled by evil. Leon, together with his two best friends Manny and Jude, embark on a journey through pictures depicting hell in order to rescue his errant mother.
There are many who would help the three friends but also those who want to defeat them.
They meet an amazing array of characters and have to judge for themselves who to trust....the carthorse who wishes he'd been painted as a stallion... or the vervet monkey who they nickname Asbo. Then there are the Tormentors made of rotting flesh crawling with maggots....
Leon loyally follows his mother's instructions with disaster looming and the doomsday predictions become real thanks to the Prince of Tyre.
Can they save planet earth from the devil in disguise?
This is a fantasy novel (11+) skillfully written to weave together art history and scientific fact with myths and legends to take you into dreams.
The philosophies and writings of art in the 20th century are forever present dogging them into a surreal dream world of lost wanderings.
In Cerulean Blue, Art and Science do mix. The story incorporates all the new advances in modern technology, specifically military inventions which are in keeping with what could happen.
But when it's combines with religious characters and mythological heroes and villains there is much to unravel. Ever heard of Archangel Michael with Paraklete body armour and a submachine gun to fight Lucifer? Or of the new miltary cloaking devices being incorporated with nanotechnology to create an awsome factually plausible invisibility cloak? Gods from the Norse myths may or may not be friends because Loki is always the trickster and Jormungand the world snake wants to be something other than herself.
This is a fantasy story without broomsticks or wands but instead a breath of fresh air, writing of plausible future elements of science art theology and love. Inspired and written to uphold the inginuity of masters like HG Wells.
All sounds too technical? Then just enjoy the fabulous story.
Too fabulous? Then check out what the future could bring you... Australian hover boards... just hope they're not ridden by an army of Tormentors.
The epic battle scenes will inspire you to request them for your gaming devices...to construct your own Titans like the gigantic scorpion in the story... Or be part of the creation myth and watch life on earth unfold.
This novel has something to inspire every reader ... Enjoy.
