In light of the days in which we live, Christians need to view Christ increasingly more as the coming conquering King who is worthy of their loyalty and devotion.

Thrust into seemingly random circumstances, and prevailed upon by harbingers of myth and legend, one man is driven to desperate measures to save his family and in so doing learns the true peril facing the land he lives in. In The Knights of the Dawn King: The Setting of the Sun ($27.99, paperback, 978-1-61215-915-7), author Scott E. Stabler weaves a fantasy novel of epic proportions with themes of understanding true friendship, sacrifice, and courage, and ultimately discovering one’s place within the decrees of a King.
As the story opens, the sun is setting over the realms of Un’Etheia, lands that have forsaken the memory of their liege and now drifting toward an age of horrific enslavement. Prophetic utterances are reaching fulfillment, while rumors of war multiply in the north and whispers of the Black Horde arise from the south. The mysterious race of the First-Born gather to reclaim their ancient homeland, even as the ruling houses succumb to greed and power lust.
Over it all an ancient dark force rises to crush the only adversary who would yet make a stand against the swelling tide of its evil designs – a once proud and honored knighthood, now fractured and held in little esteem, their allegiance to the true High King waning from within.
“In light of the days in which we live, Christians need to view Christ increasingly more as the coming conquering King who is worthy of their loyalty and devotion,” says Stabler, who adds that his love of medieval/Tolkienesque tales seemed a natural venue in which to accomplish his goal of portraying Christ with the majesty He deserves. “Most of all, I hope the reader will gain a deeper reverence for the King of Kings (Christ) and the coming consummation of His kingdom.”
