When artifacts from the tomb of an ancient Chinese legend, the Warrior King, go missing from a New Zealand museum, a forgotten world of darkness and an ancient war re-emerges that will leave people fighting for their lives. No one is safe as ancient forces return to haunt the present in “Footsteps from the Shadows” (published by Balboa Press AU).

The reemergence of the ancient war is juxtaposed with a modern setting. Author Gareth E. Solomon demonstrates that this dichotomy lends itself to an intercultural reading; when two contrary cultures are forced to confront one another, situations arise that may otherwise have been left unturned.

An excerpt from “Footsteps from the Shadows”:
Even as he walked through his beloved forest, he walked as though a stranger in a new land. He walked in torment towards the beach in search of peace. He stopped walking when something dawned on him. The realisation terrified him: there were no forest creatures making any noise. There was no sound of the critters chirping at the first fingers of the sun on the horizon.
