"There shall never be another dawn!"
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
With its expanded story and a new title, Alamptria 1: Bloodstone Crypt will be released by Double Dragon Publishing in the spring of 2013. Death looms over the beautiful land of Elysium, yet beneath this dark shadow, the brothers Seaton fight to save their kingdom, and the entire human race, from extinction. Love, death, and high adventure all play out amid surprise and suspense in this mythological land.
In 18th century Elysium, three brothers, knights bestowed with extraordinary powers, must battle the evil that scourges their beautiful kingdom. In nearby Plaphorius, the dark Lord Makoor orchestrates his vampire minions to attack the people of Alamptria, in his ultimate plot to take over the human race. The Seatons, with the help of the wizard Grongone, some fuzzy little creatures, a statue come to life, and a mountainous animal ally, manage to overtake the undead and foil their plans. But when Makoor’s lackey Tyrus Clore kidnaps Caprius Seaton’s fiancée and brings her to the underworld, it looks like the darkness could very well swallow the light.
Award-winning writer Richard A. Valicek’s epic novel, originally titled Alamptria: Red Moon Rising, gained a large following at first publication and won the 2011 Buzzillions Reviewers Choice Award. The reviews have been glowingly in praise of the book:
Once you're acquainted with the players, locales and races in this intriguing book, you'll feel right at home as a fantasy fan. It is accessible to fans of other genres as well, as the author does a fine job of pulling you into his world. Political intrigue between factions, interesting characters and magical weapons. All of these are standard fantasy fair, but the approach and life that is breathed into the world by Valicek is equal to any of the current favored authors of Fantasy fiction. To write this book off just because it happens to have supernatural characters like vampires would be a great dis-service to a well rounded and exciting foray into an unforgettable realm.

This vibrant and exotic tale is just what the doctor ordered for those in need of a literary fantasy-world treatment. The author doesn't skimp on character development or action details; so, wimps beware. You will mentally duck, sway, jump and soar your way through this 15th century epic tale of good versus evil. It's a story you can really get into with both feet. Be sure to guard your neck with a spiked collar.
