Novelist Michael Parziale takes readers into the life of Newl Rift as he struggles to save the world from destruction.

The primary legacies of the twentieth century were two global conflicts, World War I and World War II. The century peaked with the invention of weapons that killed hundreds of thousands of people, with a potential to destroy the earth itself. We wonder if the world is going to be destroyed in the twenty-first century.

In reality, it may not happen but in the world of fiction it does. First time author Michael Parziale details the confusion as missile attacks are launched from an unknown source at two warring countries in “Twilight of the Past: A Rift in Time” (ISBN 1933449195).

“Newl Rift [the main character] embarks on what he thinks will be a simple mission, but ends up learning more than he ever imagined about the war plaguing his world, his forgotten past, and his own hidden feelings,” explains Parziale.

Newl knows that the war is going nowhere and pretty much a stalemate. He decides to dig a little deeper into what’s causing all of the turmoil, and what he finds changes everything. “At heart Newl is an adventurer that wants to see peace for his homeland” adds Parziale. “Unfortunately for him others have very different plans in store.” Newl is faced with backstabbing betrayal, awe-inspiring friendship, and has to face the reality that he may never be able to see, or save, the woman that he’s fallen in love with.

Newl comes to a quick realization that appearances are often deceptive and people he thought were no threat to him are now in unimaginable positions of power. While he has been busy leading his country, others have been secretly manipulating almost every major event for the last hundred years. Newl knows that to make things right in Aldurea he must act quickly and draw strength from all of his resources. He can no longer afford to be overconfident and blind to what’s going on around him. Newl, and everyone else, need to learn from their mistakes and go forward as best they can.

Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, Michael always enjoyed writing, but never realized his story writing dreams until now. He has taken up many hobbies besides writing including horsemanship, cooking, and video game playing (mostly RPGs). He is also pursuing a Nutrition degree at Benedictine University with plans of becoming a Registered Dietitian in the near future. “Twilight of the Past: A Rift in Time” (ISBN 1933449195) may be purchased through any online book store or the author’s website:
