Development Pitch

This is a story of the fight for human survival on a biblical level. Forces of darkness hungry for power are trading in the souls of their victims to achieve unequaled power and tip the balance of the forces of the underworld. Only the power of the Light, given to a brave few, to fight back stands between complete inhalation of the human race that clings in the balance.

About The Author

I typically write your standard fantasy with dwarves, elves, and a dragon from time to time. This book came to me in a dream and for some reason felt the very real need to write it down. It sat on the shelf for a few years until I pulled it out and started developing it as part of an exercise in my writer's group. It was a lot of fun to start with that dream, which is the first pages of the book, and create this exciting story of good versus evil, light versus dark.
