The Crumbling World is an upcoming novel coming out soon that will once again be published by World Castle Publishing, LLC and I’m hoping to get a little buzz going by telling you a bit about it now. It is a high fantasy novel starring an eccentric cast of characters and an absorbing and unpredictable plot that belie its cliche beginnings. I won’t say any more because I hope that the blurb below will tell you what the book is about without having to have me elaborate further. Please let me know what you think.

Blurb:

LANCE BELIEVED HE COULD CONQUER ANY QUEST

After all, he is the strongest man in the kingdom, fearless and bold, the epitome of what it means to be a white knight. Not that he has to do it alone, not hardly, as joining him is an intrepid band of adventurers that includes his girlfriend, the dark elf Nerissa, his best friend, the white mage Alizon, the powerful wizard Strefonio, and the loveable rogue, Sanders, who insists he is not a thief. His mighty sword along with his companions’ archery, sorcery, and magic served to protect the land of Evermore and serve their lord, the benevolent King Rudolph. After defeating a mighty red dragon that threatened the land, they return home to a gallant celebration. Upon hearing whispers that he is indeed the prophesized, ‘Chosen One’ the young man grows to believe that he and his party are capable of handling any threat.

UNTIL HIS WORLD STARTS TO CRUMBLE

The homecoming festivities are cut short when a messenger informs the king that the evil sorcerer Al Kahim wishes to destroy the world by making it crumble. His motivation is unknown though, which does not dissuade Lance from eagerly volunteering to discover the reasons for his nefarious plot and ultimately putting an end to it. He learns that he needs to acquire Artus’s Sword, named after the warrior legends, which is buried underneath the throne and is encased in an obsidian stone. It can only be opened with three gems in the possession of the descendants of the so-called keepers that reside in various towns and cities across the globe.

Yet the keeper’s tasks are unlike any they’ve encountered before. The end of a blade, the tip of an arrow, and a well-placed fireball are inadequate to meet the challenges they face. With each subsequent failure, the very fabric of reality begins to crumble, but even more unsettling, his companions start to act in a manner unbecoming of heroes. Yet, he must persevere, learn the reasons behind all that is happening, and find a way to overcome it all lest the consequences for doing any less will be catastrophic. In this coming of age fantasy adventure, a young knight must ask himself: What happens when being the chosen one isn’t enough? And what happens when the world isn’t what it appears to be?

His torch represented many things. Illumination. Warmth. Comfort. It also represented a potential disaster of biblical proportions. The ancient parchment he held in his free hand was as dry as British wit and a single spark would cause it to go aflame which would leave the man lost, potentially for good. in that forgotten, dank, dark labyrinth. It did not help his psyche that there were times he had to hold the blistering orange flame perilously close to the map to see its intricacies and read its ancient inscriptions that detailed how to get by the perilous puzzles that loomed.

Her red hood covered her short jet black hair as it blew gently in the spring breeze as Scarlett traipsed through the woods. As she carried a beige picnic basket underneath her right arm, her flat jet black boots made large imprints into the dirt trail just was enough that five of her could have walked shoulder-to-shoulder together which meant two normal-sized men could occupy that same trail.

“Help! Help!” Her cries spurred him to action. The young man loved her and would do anything for her, though she did not reciprocate. He dropped his hoe and dashed to his humble cottage. He pushed aside furniture and removed a straw floor mat to reveal a hole where he hid his broadsword. Perhaps he should have returned it to the royal military when the war was over but amongst the scores of weapons pilfered from the fields of fallen soldiers, no one was going notice a single missing broadsword.
