Songs of the Osirian by Christopher D. Abbott is an epic tale of good and evil. It is a tale of the enduring power of light in a world where darkness is relentless. I like the idea of a force for good quietly teaching men a better way through age after age of the rise and then fall of civilizations. There is a great foreword by Chase Masterson, and I think Songs of the Osirian will reach a lot of eager fans. If a great novel and a great foreword are not enough for you, then there is a bonus short story at the end of the book. The Last of Us by Rob James is a great tale too. Some great Christian allegory here.
What struck a chord for me as a reader was the almost biblical, end of days tones the writing in Song of the Osirian evoked. Christopher D. Abbott knows how to add a sense of drama and high consequence to his clashes between the beasts and the Osirian. The sense of the fall of great civilizations was very strong, but more importantly, the sense that goodness endures was always present too. Complex characters and a plot leading to an epic battle between Good and Evil will make Songs of the Osirian a must-read for fans of epic fantasy everywhere. I especially liked the conversations and scenes where the Beast gives his side of the story. He is a little more than just evil incarnate and feels wronged by God and the forces of good
About the Author
He has a background in human behavioural studies and psychology. Having worked in IT, communications, safety and health, and sales, he gained a good understanding of people and their behaviours. Abbott is a self-confessed avid reader of fantasy, science-fiction, and crime fiction. He loves quirky characters such as Rodney David Wingfield's Inspector "Jack" Frost,Agatha Christie's Poirot, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. The Idea for his sleuth, Dr. Pieter Straay (Dutch Criminal Psychologist) came about by integrating the qualities he admires best in these characters.
Christopher's new series, Songs of the Osirian, is his first step into the sci-fi - fantasy genre. The development took a number of years, and with the second book comes a unique blend of Ancient Egyptian mythology and epic-fantasy.
Christopher is a huge Star Trek fan, and is a supporter of the Pop Culture Hero Coalition.He supports Chase Masterson in her efforts to stamp out bullying, racism,misogyny, cyber-bullying, LGBT-bullying, and other forms of hate.
