Apocalyptic disaster, ancient prophesies and ambitions of conquest abound in author David Gerspach’s new fantasy fiction, “The Fourth Age: Verdan Chronicles: Volume 1” (published by Lulu).

Featuring a wizard with aspirations of grandeur, this book, Gerspach’s first novel in a planned nine-volume series, employs a universal battle between forces of good and evil.

“While many of the concepts and creatures depicted in the story are familiar to those who read this genre, I believe the unique twist I’ve given to some of them will also surprise readers,” Gerspach says. “I also think I’ve created characters that are relatable with flaws, fears and emotions that drive their actions – sometimes with unintended consequences.”

With an extensive character list including powerful heroes and villains, elves, dragons, werewolves, telepathic horses, wraiths, giants and more, Gerspach’s “The Fourth Age” makes for a magical adventure story replete with medieval detail and spotted with magic and fantastical elements for readers of all generations to enjoy.

“From all the books I’ve read, movies and TV shows I’ve watched, and games I’ve played, I’ve taken all the best elements and stirred them around in my head,” Gerspach says. “Hopefully, the result is something both creative and interesting.”
