A brooding battle between humans and demihumans ensues. And readers are about to find out who, in this ominous war, can defeat their natures as author Marc Mattaliano brings forth a riveting and action-packed fantasy novel in The Demihuman Archives.
Set in the year 2385, the tale of The Demihuman Archives introduces a world different from today. In Dublin, Ireland, the all-human company Ronox has built a worldwide reputation for exterminating demihumans—elves, orcs, trolls, dwarves, demons, pixies, and vampires. Specializing in cybernetics, they created the world’s first cyborg that performed without any errors, chances of malfunction, or emotional anomalies—with a sole mission to cleanse the earth of its most terminal disease, the demihumans.
However, the demihumans will not give up without a fight. The Vein is a militia of diverse vampires, desperate to take down the oppressive corporation. Tranquil Green is a haven for lost and wandering elves that’s slowly gaining in number. Bronze is a loner hybrid of elf and demon blood, searching all Dublin for his estranged love, and he’ll do anything to get her back.
What will be the outcome of this ongoing battle? The Demihuman Archives tells all.
This book will be featured in the 2010 New Jersey Library Association Book Exhibit in Long Branch, NJ on April 27-28, 2010. For more information on this book, log on to Xlibris.com.
About the Author
Marc Mattaliano was born in 1980. He has been an Italian Jersey boy his whole life. Mattaliano’s first loves are fantasy role-playing video games, Japanese anime, and the NY/NJ Hardcore metal scene. Music has made him stronger; clever animation, movies, and television shows have fueled his creativity and sense of humor; and working on an RPG that can take eighty hours to complete has kept him dedicated to finishing what he has started. Mattaliano loves experiencing someone else’s stories and creations, but taking a chance to create his own journeys since childhood has been the most rewarding experience of all.
