In the finest tradition of the Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Beowulf, the Matrix, Gilgamesh, Shikasta and other epic visionary works; the Redeemer’s Tale is essential reading for fans of the genre. A nightmare parallel world, light years from our own but disturbingly close. Where order is perverted and the human race becomes the unwitting prey in a struggle between the forces of light and dark. Kathar, an angel, a goddess, driven from her Higher Place, corrupted, scorned and dangerous flees to The Mother of Gardens. Amina, the one planet in the Outer Realms that is the originating point of all physical life in the Multiverse.
A higher being chooses to enter the dystopia arising from Kathar’s intrusion; to enact a final desperate rescue mission and prevent the entire Universe plunging into the abyss. This opening instalment of a compelling epic fantasy introduces a cast of intergalactic beings; gods and goddesses; tyrants and dictators, helpers, magi, watchers, psychic warriors, sinister servants of malevolence and their hapless victims.
The higher being is born as a human child, a hero whose quest is to relearn who and what they are while remaining hidden. The child must be protected from the ruthless queen who has placed the world into suspension and isolation. En route there are friendships, passions, loves, masters and students. Those who have accompanied and prepared the way for the one remaining hope exist within the world, unknown to any but each other. Possessing extraordinary powers and abilities, profound insight and wisdom, they are all that stands between hope and despair.
Kathar has corrupted the world and everything in it by creating a structure that bleeds the people dry of their raw emotion, their deepest fears and terrors, the fuel she needs to power her own lust for glory. Nightmare engineers stalk the planet, a network of powerful totems dominates the people and any who try to escape their influence are dealt with ruthlessly.
Some know the system is a corruption, but they are powerless and hide in the shadows. One comes that will empower and rejuvenate them; this is the beginning of their story, the Redeemer’s Tale.
Multilayered, breathing, real and dynamic characters inhabit a world where the reader shares their hopes and fears. Plots and subplots interweave and blend in a scenery rich with symbolism, hidden knowledge and secrets.
Discover an entire new world with its own history and legends where the survival of one child carries the hope of the future in an epic tale that entertains and enthrals.
