GENESIS OF OBLIVION THE SAGA BEGINS
In a sleepy farming stead, a young man, Alant Cor, is found to be one of the few Humans who can manipulate the Essence. And, not simply manipulate it, Alant has more powere over this magical force than any Human in known history. Does his younger brother, Arderi Cor, possess the same ability, or something more sinister?
Clytus Rillion, the commander of a mercenary troup, embarks on a quest to cure his dying son, Sindian. Though he doubts he will survive the journey, he will pay any price to save his son’s life.
The beast, known only as Klain, born a slave and now used to entertain the masses in a bloodtthirsty sport known as the Games, finds out his true value to those who own him lies with his death.
All are resigned to walk the paths fate has put them upon. Yet, is this of their own accord? Or, is an ancient and powerful race, the Almorr’ Antiens, manipulating the other inhabitants of Talic’ Nauth? Change is falling upon the Plane. Some Elmorr’ Antiens are making preparations to weather the storms ahead- others intend to use the coming chaos to seize power over all the races.
Follow these seemingly unrelated lives as their paths are set on a course that none can hope to survive. Readers of the Genesis of Oblivion Saga will immerse themselves in the depth of a unique world culture, the grandeour of its civilizations, and the sheer awe of more than niney-six thousand years of history!
