Erik Coryell, a husband and father based in the Pacific Northwest, has completed his new book “Kane: A Walk Through Darkness”: an imaginative novel that follows Kane, whose questionable decisions on Earth lead him to commit suicide. Once he is in the underworld, he encounters suffering of terrifying proportions, which make him try to find a way back to his wife and child in the world of the living.

“For Kane, death brings clarity and purpose,” Coryell explains of the novel’s plot. “Drawing on an inner strength he has never known, Kane sets out across the twisted planes of purgatory with unrelenting determination to redeem himself and find a way home.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Erik Coryell’s work creates a horrifying landscape ruled by Ereshkigal, the Sumerian queen of the underworld. However, this is a completely original take on Ereshkigal and her domain—especially once Kane’s desire to leave her dominion catches her attention.

“The underworld is a place of hopelessness where lost souls face unimaginable horrors and endure endless torment to the amusement of the beautiful and twisted Ereshkigal,” Coryell said of his interpretation of this underworld ruler. “Both amused and fascinated by Kane’s tenacity, Ereshkigal’s motives toward Kane begin to change and soon twist into a dark obsession. Instead of toying with this mortal, she now seeks to keep him for herself.”

To discover what comes of Kane and Ereshkigal, readers can purchase “Kane: A Walk Through Darkness” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
