Joseph Lankford has completed his new book “Commencement”: a gripping and potent narrative about the current Phantom, the strongest and most skilled hunter of the Order, named Dante.

“Hours later, we made it to our destination. It was just as dark and ominous as I thought it would be. The trees blocked out any and all light. There were only the faintest sounds, humid, the foliage was so thick I couldn’t even see the sky. I’m almost tempted to say it could be worse, but I know how that tends to work. I jumped off the bike, and Nex absorbed it. I’d probably complain about Nex if he wasn’t so useful to have around.

“’So this is the place, huh?’ I checked my map again, and sure enough, this is where it was leading me. ‘Let’s check it out.’ Silently, I made my way up one of the trees and climbed my way across the branches. After a couple of minutes of crawling, I felt a disturbance in the air. It was…something magical in nature. Strong magic can be like radiation, the powerful energies of the spells would mutate the environment, usually just making things bigger and more aggressive.”

Published by Page Publishing, Joseph Lankford’s chilling tale shows are things are not always as they appear.

The Order is an ancient organization that was created in order to end the existence of magical creatures. Phantom Dante believed that he was doing the right thing by protecting humanity from the evil monsters for his entire life. However, once he stumbles upon a safe haven for creatures, he realizes that things are not as he’s been taught to think and he begins to see these creatures in a new light.
