The Dark Price of Ahriman

Rate this book
His family massacred, a boy must claim a dark inheritance and wage war against a greater evil.

Eighteen-year-old Simon Bell has accepted the the black mantle of power, returned his sister's soul, and destroyed the mage who killed his family.

Ahriman, the Dread Star, waxes in the night sky, sending monsters and madmen across the gulfs of space and time to Earth. It whispers in Simon's mind, pulling him closer to insanity and servitude. The Order of Ahriman, the only coven of mages able to battle the threat has been nearly entirely wiped out by an unseen enemy. Other covens, convinced Simon has already fallen to the temptations of the Dark Planet, have targeted him for assassination.

Beset on all sides by enemies, the battle grows desperate. Simon must reach out to a dwindling pool of allies, but not all of them
are what they seem. The temptation of Ahriman is strong and many will fall along the path, dooming the planet to a final death.

About the author

Justin Robinson

40 books151 followers
Much like film noir, Justin Robinson was born and raised in Los Angeles. He splits his time between editing comic books, writing prose and wondering what that disgusting smell is. Degrees in Anthropology and History prepared him for unemployment, but an obsession with horror fiction and a laundry list of phobias provided a more attractive option.

As anyone who gets behind the wheel of car can tell you, Los Angeles is going to hell in a hand basket. In Justin Robinson's The Dark Price of Ahriman, this is literally true. Of course, in Robinson's world, hell is the Dark Planet of Ahriman, and the hand basket is a group of brave, but ill-fated, humans who have chosen to try to interact with and control it.

Stronger than it's predecessor in almost every way. The story often felt like a supernatural tv show, and I mean that as a compliment. A lot of interesting characters and relationships, and a twist I did not see coming.

The first book in a trilogy is often the one that holds up the best. From the second book, you can get a sense of whether the series is going to work together as a whole or completely fall apart. Here the author builds on the first book, following up on the ways friendships change as people come of age and delving deeper into a truly well-built magical world.
