As the universe teeters on the edge of collapse, a power from ancient Earth, Dagomir N’ark, has been masquerading as the god of the Holy Nephretian Empire, spurring the empire to wonton acts of destruction.
Marco and Victor are part of an invading force of Kalbarians and Alathians attacking the home world of the Holy Nephretian Empire. Their goal is to make it to the Nephretian First Temple where Marco will activate a device to destroy the avatar of Dagomir N’ark. Meanwhile, the planet of Ullrion suffers under the boot of the Holy Nephretian Empire. Rear Admiral Taura leads a fleet against the Nephretian occupiers while Silmion struggles in the city of Selfariene to undermine the Nephretian occupying forces. Finally, Ariadne and Seir T’pan, with the help of Kie, a mad strandwalker, break into the palace of Dagomir N’ark to strike at his heart.
The third and final book of the Triumvirate Trilogy, The Light the World Needs offers a conclusion to the future of the human race.
Brad C. Anderson lives with his wife and puppy in Vancouver, Canada. He teaches undergraduate business courses at a local university and researches organizational wisdom in blithe defiance of the fact most people do not think you can put those two words in the same sentence without irony. Previously, he worked in the biotech sector where he made drugs for a living (legally!).
His stories have appeared in a variety of publications. His short story, Naïve Gods, was longlisted for a 2017 Sunburst Award for Excellence in Canadian Literature of the Fantastic. It was published in the anthology Lazarus Risen, which was itself nominated for an Aurora Award.
