Against the backdrop of epic warfare and the powers of ten mysterious gods, Lucia struggles to understand The Black One.

Her father-king wants war.

Her messianic brother wants peace.

The black god wants his due.

She suffers all the consequences.

King Vieri is losing his war against the lands of Pawelon. Feeling abandoned by his god, he forces his son Caio, the kingdom’s holy savior, to lead his army. Victory ought to come soon.

To counter Caio’s powers, Pawelon’s prince enters the conflict. Rao is a gifted sage, a master of spiritual laws. He joins the rajah to defend their citadel against the invaders. But Rao’s ideals soon clash with his army’s general.

The Black One tortures Lucia nightly with visions promising another ten years of bloodshed. She can no longer tell the difference between the waking world and her nightmares. Lucia knows the black god too well. He entered her bed and dreams when she was ten.

The Black One watches, waiting to see Lucia confront an impossible decision over the fates of two men–and two lands.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Overall, I find I really can’t stop thinking about this story. Unforgettable story, intriguing characters, compelling journey with unexpected twists- in short, a very satisfying and engaging read. Isn’t that why we read for pleasure?

*******

The Black God’s War is, to date, the finest example of quality independent fantasy I’ve seen. This is undoubtedly due to Siregar’s willingness to write and rewrite until each chapter feels just right to him. He’s clearly cut where he needed to and added much more depth and balance (the Pawelons get much more of a look in in this finished version). As a reader, I was left with absolute confidence that this writer knows his world and characters inside out. Nothing is left to chance: Moses knows what he’s about.

*******

I couldn’t stop reading… from one twist to another I kept wondering how the story could progress, and I was continually delighted that Siregar kept the storyline intact while finding surprising and believable solutions for each scenario he created.

Perhaps the best way I can sum up how I enjoyed this book is to tell you that while reading the final pages, I found myself crying, screaming (“Nooooo!”) and hyperventilating. Yet when the final words were read, I was completely satisfied with the story and at peace with the conclusion… and dreaming of what the next volume may hold for me.

About The Author


When I was ten, I fell in love with an anime series: a space opera spanning three human generations, a saga that unfolded over 85 consecutive episodes and four months of after-school TV. Watching ‘Robotech’ was a spiritual experience for me. I still remember how high I felt after watching the final episode for the first time. How many pleasures in life are better than a well-executed drama?

After that experience, I decided I wanted to be a storyteller when I grew up, hoping to someday inspire others as Robotech inspired me. Although I’ve written professionally and for pleasure for many years, it wasn’t until recently that I got back around to my heart’s desire when I was a boy: Telling the big story.

I’ve never had so much fun.

My novel ‘The Black God’s War’ is a dramatic original epic fantasy and an homage to Homer with a multicultural flavor. My novella-length preview of the novel is available on Amazon. The full novel is planned for release in print and as an e-book in the summer of 2011.

You can follow my blog, ‘Moses and Dionysus Walk Into a Bar …’ at www.ScienceFictionFantasy.net.

I invite you to read a sample from my epic story and, more than anything, I hope you’ll enjoy it and feel inspired by it to pursue your own passion.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Moses Siregar III and ENT appreciate it.
