He could not find what he wanted to read so author Stephen Ricketts decided to write it himself. Meshing history and fantasy, he came up with an intricate story of survival and the people’s struggle against oppressions. “War Storm” (published by Xlibris UK) is another adventure book that picks up where “Exodus” left off.

“War Storm” is the second book in “The Lords of Destiny” series. An action-adventure set in ancient times, this tale cleverly integrates historical events into a fictional timeline. The story follows three brothers, lords who are changing the world and thwarting a malevolent empire to build their own nation. The story then twists and weaves through the ordeals and relationships of the three lords who have one destiny — proclaimed by a 2000-year old prophecy.

This tale tells of the struggles of the free world against an expanding and oppressive empire. Housing such a relevant theme, “War Storm’s” intricacies serve as vessels for social comment and historical interpretation for the readers. Epic battles, love stories and political intrigues make up the multi-storylines that glue readers to another gripping adventure.
