THE MIGHTY SHALL RISE
The Mighty Shall Rise is an epic fantasy novel, which is also the first in a tentatively-planned seven-book saga. Intended to be enjoyed by both children and adults of all ages, it was originally slotted for digital and physical release on July 15, 2020, but a full release has since been delayed indefinitely, due to complications with the story.
Instead, the novel will be serialized in short periodicals, with the first instalment scheduled for release on the abandoned July date, under the title, Splintered Symphonies. Work on prospective second and third serials is ongoing and a release date has not been announced for either.
To reach the light beyond, he must confront the dark within.
Recruited out of his exile, young Endurian Stonehelm forges an alliance with the legendary warrior, Tyrelion Ivronwine, to retrieve the lost Sceptre of Anakämar from the White Tower in a move that will have long-ranging consequences for all of Pergelion.
Drawn into these events is the usurper, Ir-Murazôr, whose mere presence promises a long-awaited end to Endurian’s desperate search for answers. But the tormented Endurian is fighting a losing battle against a lifetime of guilt and terror, and his inevitable confrontation with Murazôr spells disaster of the worst kind.
That, combined with the ever-looming shadow that is his family’s legacy, drive Endurian to sacrifice friendship and honour for the road of madness; and in his horrific descent into darkness and despair, the true conflict manifests itself not as a struggle to right past wrongs, but as a fight for Endurian’s very soul. To master the darkness within, he must reach beyond himself to confront the Dark King and in so doing, find his true place in the world.
