Brett Armstrong’s THE GATHERING DARK is a well-told tale of fantasy in epic proportions!

Brett Armstrong has done it again. "Quest of Fire: The Gathering Dark," is his third book and like the other two, it is truly thought-provoking. First, he gave us Destitutio Quod Remissio, a powerful Christian novel set in Ancient Rome which displayed a gritty realism rarely encountered in the genre. It challenged modern Christians to consider how we would handle trials and tribulations in our own lives.
In 2017, Armstrong followed that with something completely different. Day Moon is a dystopian
A QUEST OF FIRE: THE GATHERING DARK is a book filled with adventure, mystery, amazing worlds and brilliant characters. I have not read a book quite like this. I say that about a lot of books, I know. But I genuinely mean it this time. Brett Armstrong's world-building is phenomenal. Every detail was composed and brought to life so intricately.

The beginning of the book did not really hook me right away, but by the end I was interested in seeing what happens to Jason as he learns that some stories are built on tru ...more

The idea of a story within a story is also intriguing as it adds an extra interest to the plot fantasy lovers will not be able to resist. Overall, this is an excellent tale readers shouldn’t skip!

Read full review in the 2019 May issue of InD'tale Magazine.

If you enjoy epic fantasy, I would strongly recommend this book to you. The Gathering Dark is the beginning of a saga that begins with a young man who must learn to grow up much faster than most. It seems like the weight of the world is placed on our hero’s shoulders when he sets out on a mysterious quest, but he is not alone on this adventure.

The best (and maybe the worst) part of this book is that its part of a much bigger picture. I mentioned earlier that this is the beginning of a saga so i
