Palak has always been different; stronger, bigger and more of a strategist than any other Brunt in his clan. His lighter eyes, enormous stature and different demeanor have made him a bit of an outsider to some, yet still, he is respected by the clan and poised to take over in due time.
Palak’s world is full of turmoil. The clans and tribes of Medias are constantly sparring with each other over territories, religious beliefs, basic resources, and trade disagreements. Some believe they are chosen by Sky Gods to live a more blessed life. Others believe they are wrongly cheated of the resources they need by the tribes around them.
A young world, the occupants of Medias are actually unwitting pawns in a game being played by two advanced alien races. Palak’s planet was recently won by the Sucobers in a renowned Contest between Sucober and Plamanic warriors. As the planet’s new rightful owners, the Sucobers come to Medias to stake their claims on the mineral resources found within the planet’s core. Under false pretenses, the Sucobers pretend to be Sky Gods to trick the inhabitants into helping them mine Medias to the point of annihilation.
The Sucobers’ rivals, the Plamanics, fear further expansion by the Sucobers. Out of necessity, they have come to Medias to experiment on the indigenous creatures in hopes of creating a superior warrior to fight for them in the next Contest.
Progenitor: Palak and the Sky Gods offers a unique view of its characters as they discover love and friendship in unexpected places, while pulling together to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. A thought provoking tale designed to challenge the reader’s moral compass on the needs that can drive any culture to justify its means.
