The Culling Begins Halloween 2014
(PRWEB) October 23, 2014
Michael James Ploof, author of the Amazon Bestseller fantasy series, “Legends of Agora,” will be releasing the first of his upcoming series. The new book, entitled “Afterworld: The Orion Rezner Chronicles,” is a paranormal urban fantasy featuring all of the necessary elements for the perfect reading during the Halloween season: witches, wizards, ghosts, and more.
The story takes place in the year 2040 in Boston, following an event known as the Culling, which wiped out most of the world’s population. Boston is now one of the last vestiges of humanity in a post-apocalyptic world being overrun by demons, vampires, and werewolves.
While working towards his final rite of passage at Harvard Witchcraft and Wizardry, Orion learns of a demonic plot that would destroy Boston. With suspicious eyes watching him, Orion must save the city from this deadly scheme.
Interestingly, the book also features the Ghost of Benjamin Franklin – who founded the American Wizard Council – as Orion’s mentor. Ploof writes Franklin’s character to speak only in quips from Poor Richard’s Almanack. Orion is also accompanied by a genetically altered chimpanzee named Dude.
The book alternates between humor and intense action scenes, raising moral dilemmas, and features a unique hard magic system. Ploof credits “The Dresden Files,” by Jim Butcher as one of the major influences on this work.
“Afterworld: The Orion Rezner Chronicles” will be released through Amazon on October 31, and can be pre-ordered in both paperback and eBook format, through Kindle.
