MONTREAL (PRWEB) November 07, 2012
A story about the eternal struggle between good and evil, “The Chronicles of Lux Veritas: Evil at the Gates” (published by iUniverse) is Christopher Dignan’s action-packed, young adult fantasy novel tailored specifically to reach a young male audience.
A teenage boy, accompanied by two of his friends, get transported by accident to the afterlife through the Wheel of Souls. They arrive in Purgator, a land where good and evil struggle to coexist. With the help of the divine sword Lux Veritas, they must crush the uprising by the Lord of Darkness Chaos in order to get back home.
An excerpt from “The Chronicles of Lux Veritas”:
“Dorian was sleeping light and was first to his feet, followed by Solas and Amy. Xiao Ren and Senex were last. This was a sure sign that this day, deep in the Forsaken Forest of Outlandia, the world was indeed upside down.
The group exchanged few words, gathered their belongings, and without further ado, prepared to step out of the cavern to face the new day. Izzar led the way. As they approached the front door and the troll began to remove the crossbeam, Lux Veritas lit up.”
Dignan has crafted his story to be fun to read, but he has also worked to incorporate intellectual themes. “As much as it is a young adult fantasy story,” says Dignan, “the book asks many questions and challenges the reader to think about his/her own code of ethics and the importance of building lasting relationships.”
