TEARS OF RAGE: First Chosen (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 14, 2011 07:44AM
Description: “This is really great stuff!” - James Rollins, Author of THE DEVIL COLONY and MAP OF BONES FIRST CHOSEN is the story of Julianna, a noble from the conquered kingdom of Koma. In her moment of greatest need, she frees an ancient god, Grandfather Shadow, from his thousand-year prison. In his gratitude, the god names her his high priest and commands Julianna to lead his people to greatness once again. Unfortunately for Julianna, it is a capital crime for any of her people to worship one of the five ancient gods. While evading Inquisitors of All Father Sun and the followers of the god of death, Julianna must learn to use the vast power that Grandfather Shadow has given her in order to survive long enough to unite Grandfather Shadow's fractured people. And so begins, TEARS OF RAGE a dark, epic fantasy about the power of faith and belief, where even though the gods can inspire these qualities in mortals, it is those same mortals that truly control the religions that form from any god’s divine inspiration. It is also a swashbuckling tale of political intrigue where men scheme against each other and the gods, and how friendship, loyalty, and faith can help people persevere through the darkest times.
