In RASCISS, Shane Porteous skillfully immerses the reader in a poignant and imaginative dark fantasy tale pitting the gods against an unusual mortal. A well-crafted action ride keeping one turning the pages.
This amazing story begins when Hollowawk, an ordinary man, defies certain death, angering the king of all gods, Ganius, who then becomes angrier when Hollowawk butchers those the gods send to kill him, earning him the name of the Red Immortal. Ganius, now apopletic, summons the gods of war to choose a being mighty enough to kill the Red Immortal in order to rectify destiny's blunder.
To escape the gods' wrath, Hollowawk, accompanied by a troop of fourteen man-creature warriors, begin a dangerous and frightening journey to seek the help of Obuvik, the last of the anti-gods imprisoned for eternity by Ganius in a hellish desert, there mourning through all the ages the loss of his fallen love, the goddess Vickeriia, daughter of Gamius. However, before traveling to this formidable desert, the Red Immortal must first acquire the crucial items insuring that he and his warrior troop will survive in its killer heat, then find the body of Vickeriia and bring it back with them to give to Obuvik for his favor.
After traveling long and far over strange terrains both treacherous and astonishing to secure these items, Hollowawk's troop wards off vicious attacks almost taking their lives before they locate the goddess' tomb and find her casket. Then through a portal provided by a mystic, the troop carries the casket to Obuvik's desert --- the 'endless barrier', a sea of dead sand and furious winds beneath a fiery sun; a lifeless sinister land forgotten, uncivilized and chaotic, without nightfall and without exit.Read more ›
