Publisher Description



The world gathers on a precipice over chaos:

In the West, the God-Emperor Cardolyn Tyier broods over his vast conquests and plots the subjugation of all other kingdoms. To the South, the Kalvonder plutocracy continues their bloody entertainments, too invested in small schemes, transient vices and petty ascensions to notice one of their own has a far grander design. From the East, a legion of paladins embarks on a crusade of holy conquest against the secluded Northlands, intent on supplanting the land’s sovereign deity and crushing it beneath their pantheon.

But these are children’s squabbles, for a forgotten evil hides behind these conflicts, amassing power and guiding humanity toward the precipice. The world has had many names for it, but men always called it the Muntalabacs: Dread Lords. 

The Avenar know one has resurfaced. They can feel his quiet footsteps resounding across the world and heralding the renewed conflict between their families. The Avenar are spent, though, and will need whatever help they can find, be it from eccentrics, outcasts or madmen.

His existence is soulless, yet he craves anything that will make him feel something. I hate Slade with a passion and sympathized with Brimares.... Valeriius is despicable….” Rabia Tanveer - 5 stars “ We encounter sharp and sophisticated characters, enmeshed in a world filled with mystery and the struggle of a lifetime to save the world from impending doom.

KDanie ,

Well written and recommended

It's pretty good. The three different storylines are different enough that it suits different preferences for books. Slade is funny with his antics, and Dieharamon is interesting with all the drama and backstabbing and intrigue going on. I like those two the best; The High Warden sequence was a little slow for my liking, though the story itself traveled at a decent pace.

The Darkness That Slept

I liked the cover image so much I was willing to give the book a try for the .99cent iBook edition, and I can honestly say it was money well spent.
I found the concept of the Great Immortals new and refreshing. The idea that there are things greater and older than the gods was a fun idea for me. Some of the characters are manipulative, conniving, and still a mystery at the end of the book - leaving me waiting for the next book in the sequence. It's really nice to not be able to predict the book. I am still wondering who is Slade really? What is Valeriius up to? What exactly did Brimares do to end up in the Abyss? Oh, the poor High-Warden!
Despite being a fairly large book, it doesn't feel long. It does sometimes push the laws of plausibility, but it is a fantasy book after all and certainly an enjoyable read. Well worth my time.
