As the drums of war continue to whisper their way across the winds of the world of Extremus Terra, Lucas Torinac prepares to depart on his Quest, a rite of passage for his people. The uneasy times and Lucas' persistent immaturity make the decision a reluctant one, and there is little confidence in his ability to succeed. Still not fully grasping the significance of his task, he wanders into a deadly and unforgiving world without direction or aid. Just before catastrophe can strike, he meets Ian. Twenty-five years his senior, and an honored and powerful member of their race, Ian patiently begins to provide the guidance that Lucas needs to survive in the magical and barbaric world of Extremus Terra. Under Ian's tutelage, Lucas comes to grips with the world around him, and he rapidly begins to realize that the most deadly creatures on Extremus Terra are the humans themselves. It becomes apparent that he must come of age quickly if he is to survive, let alone accomplish his Quest. But as he and Ian struggle just to keep their lives, it also becomes clear to them that Lucas' Quest is no ordinary one; he is to unite the human races and bring peace to the world.
For anyone who reads this review, this is a really, really good book. It combines the fantasy/creativity of lord of the rings with a message that really resonates in today's society. The fact that an author could produce a novel like this as his first book is simply astounding. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys interesting, thought provoking reading.
