James McCann unveils a brutal world filled with magic, warring factions, a little romance, some deceit and a lot of fast-paced action. The Krim Tiak have laid waste to much of creation, leaving death and destruction in their wake. Those whom they do not kill, they enslave for some future great war.

Forest, the sole survivor of genocide against his people, hides for a year before he is captured by a people who think themselves gods. When he escapes, he plans to destroy the Krim Tiak with only a group of misfits as his allies. They all represent their respective villages, although they, due to imperfections, are ostracized by their own people.

Forest is forced to give up the revenge buried in his heart (over his lost village) in order to embrace his destiny: to save the world from people who believe themselves to be gods and those who worship Death. Death itself is bringing about the apocalypse, and Death is presented as an aberration that has access to hell.

This is not a faithful recounting of the battle of Armagedddon as told in the book of Revelation in the Holy Bible. As a work of fiction, however, this does run parallel in themes of the age-old values of Good versus Evil. An engaging fantasy world that will appeal to young adults and those with a spirit of adventure.
