AN ANCIENT EVIL
The gods create a new world. The God of Myth knows how reality should look, but the God of Everything has a plan of his own. Two worlds are created, two different realities. Into each world a hero is born destined to defeat the Evil that threatens each of their empires.
Evil attacks. Imps, shades and something far more mysterious, far more dangerous. Both heroes are forced to flee.
The God of Myth’s Lukas gathers a party of courageous warriors but discovers each is hiding secrets. The God of Everything’s Dane discovers that the companions the gods send him are often more annoying than helpful.
Lukas wants his family safe and to be back rebuilding their farm, if weird wizards didn’t keep annoying him about his destiny. Dane wants to defeat Evil and become the greatest avatar ever created, if only his hit points didn’t keep spiraling into the sky whenever he’s hit.
Meanwhile the shadows are watching everything, even the gods, and everyone knows you can’t trust shadows.
An intriguing tale with parallel storyline’s that keeps you guessing - enjoyable to read with a quirky sense of humour woven throughout.
Russell is an amazing writer and you will truly see it in his work. When you read, you'll find yourself laughing at places you really don't expect, and it'll make you ready for a mind-bending adventure that you wouldn't know you'd love before you go on it.
Daniel Nichols is a seventy-three-year-old pensioner who is told by three angels that he is the Chosen One. His quest is to defeat the Evil that has always plagued mankind.
Armed with a baseball bat and a banana, Daniel sets out on his quest with three angels inside his head as guides. He travels through a number of strange dimensions, meeting heroes, villains and ordinary people. He soon learns that in order to defeat the Evil, he must understand what in hell the Evil really is.
Oh, no! Wave the banana, Daniel. Wave the banana.
An inter-dimensional adventure full of delightful absurdity with a pessimistic protagonist we can all relate to on this journey. Each scene is a clever snapshot into society and the author’s quirks and humour shine throughout.
Russell's refreshingly witty style is like nothing I've read before, but will certainly read again. Love it!
