“… an extremely enjoyable read.” – Amazon Review
The Great Destruction brought Earth to its knees. As centuries passed, humanity had grown into the near-utopian realm of Tartica. Yet, utopia once created, cannot long endure the onslaught of human nature. Benevolent leaders guiding Tartica’s ideal society succumb to dark ambitions and assassins from a parallel dimension—a brutal world condemned to exist forever in darkness—arrive, and everything is driven towards chaos.
Utopia Falling: A Darkness Rises begins the dark epic fantasy trilogy, The Utopia Falling Saga.
Goodreads Review – “Overall, the story is great and I’ll be waiting for the next in the series to come out.”
Targeted Age Group:: 18+
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
As an avid reader or all things scifi/fantasy, somewhere along the way I got the notion to weave a story that I'd want to read. Writers that inspired me include Joe Abercrombie, Mark Lawrence, and Stephen R. Donaldson to name a few. The more I read over the years, I found myself attracted to stories that explored the darker side of human nature while leaving just enough room for hope.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I started with the idea that most individuals skew towards "good intentions"—at least in their own minds—while others, not so much. I created characters that are driven by their own personal motivations. The good guys aren't always so noble, while the bad guys believe that what they doing is for their own greater good—as they see the world. It's all a matter of perspective. With that in mind, I wrote a multi-POV narrative delving into the actions and motivations of each POV character that drives the plot forward, chapter-by-chapter.
