In the aftermath of revolution, King Kalak of Tyr is dead and all eyes fall on the lucrative iron mines of his once mighty city-state. Merchant houses scramble to seize what scraps they can while King Hamanu of Urik, the Lion of the Desert, rallies his armies to crush the Tyr rebellion underfoot. He cannot allow this insurrection to succeed and intends to seize the city’s precious resources for himself. The hope of the Tyr revolution seems destined to fail as the tyrannical specter of Hamanu’s war machine looms large on the horizon. But fate chooses the most unlikely heroes. Loren, a gladiator pressed into service by a corrupt merchant prince; the ambitious Alaeda Stel who hopes to secure her family’s future by exploiting Tyr’s sudden weakness; a street thief named Melech; and Korvak the disgraced templar are Tyr’s best and only hope. The promise of freedom rests on their ability to overcome the greed and lust for power that threatens to undermine the principles of Tyr’s revolution. From the Paperback edition.

Beneath a crimson sun lie wastelands of majestic desolation and cities of cruel splendor, where heroes must battle the horrible monsters and vicious raiders who roam the desert, while in the cities undying sorcerer-kings crush any who dare to oppose them. This is Athas, the unrelenting world of the Dark Sun®; a world shaped by inherently destructive magic, and ruled by intrinsic evil. In such a world, the forces of good—and the heroes who emerge in this unforgiving land—fight not only for themselves, but for life of the world itself. Aric, is a half-elf with a rare natural ability with the psionic discipline known as “the Way.” When Aric is brought into a quest to search for a priceless trove weapons, he would rather keep his head down and live a simple life. But nothing is simple in the city of Nibenay with it reclusive ruler known as the Shadow King. And in a world where metal is the rarest of commodities, Aric’s “way” with metal is an even rarer talent. Enlisted by the Shadow King himself to seek out this cache of metal weaponry, Aric heads into the desert with a treacherous band of adventurers. Allegiances are tested and secrets are uncovered. But sometimes the secrets hidden by the sands of time should remain undiscovered. When Aric and his band uncover an evil perhaps greater than the Shadow King himself, it is a race against time to see who will harness its power.

Boundaries are challenged and traditions are explored as Dalal undergoes many challenges that threaten to push her to her absolute limits.

However, his early writings resulted in a chapbook, “Semantics of a Dark Sun,” a collection of poems that provide insight into Everett’s early childhood years. He performed his poetry in Atlanta, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. In addition, he wrote poetry that was read by Old Court Middle School students for the school’s presentation entitled "Portrait of a Child." In 2000 the Arena Players, Baltimore City’s storied community theater, planned to perform “Semantics of a Dark Sun” in Amsterdam. However, the tragic events of September 11, 2000 led to cancellation of the overseas trip. Everett is excited to have Xlibris publish his early works.

This collection of eleven stories provides a voice for many different worlds and characters: from the naïve but beautiful Italian woman and her erotic obsession with religion and dentistry, to the Rock/Blues singer damaged by drugs and alcohol, whose moment in the sun has passed, and who falls under the spell of the honey-voiced Mississipi Southern Belle of his satnav. One evening, whilst suffering from writers’ block, Gareth Owen recalled an anecdote related by his Italian teacher and mentally transformed himself into an Italian woman, and the result was Zia Teresa: the tale of the rather dim small-town beauty and her erotic obsessions. There is a touching, dexterous humour about the tale.Fortunately the new-found confidence survived to enable him to pen ten further stories many with male protagonists and English settings: the chilling ghost story of the aborted child, the narcissistic actor and his breakdown on stage; the confessions of the serial philanderer. There is horror, comedy and an elegant insightfulness here that keeps the reader turning the pages and asking for more. These stories will both enthral and delight.

As Poethics Obilivion Stareyes - Dark Sun, this is my first book of Poetry. I have written Poetry, however, authored by my real name, which is Verlena Sexton-Walker, and as Poethics Oblivion Stareyes and therefore, have published six Poetry Books and all are live. Thirty-One Days was written in the presence of a Spiritual God. I felt as if I was a castaway in such of a new world and thus, my Poetry was a channel of articulation brought from the spiritual realm via the mind by means of meditation. As a Psalmist, which is the qualifier that defines my Poetry, I have scribed Thirty-One Days in an academia presence of insight and theory. Theologically, Thirty-One Days is an anointing of sanctification given by the Spiritual God within a divine aura and with the dignity of a Goddess. Thirty-One Days idolizes the human life formed as a supernatural existence that is prayer based, theologically sound, ministry of the truth, and bound by a higher order to come. Dogmatically, Thirty-One Days captures a doctrine of faith that is shown throughout its poetic verses. Scripturally prepared to a monotheistic belief, Thirty-One Days is mystically written to enrich and enhance the insight to develop foresight via the creation of the Spiritual God who we sense when we call upon the Lord. In all, Thirty-One Days was etched in the State of Michigan by a native Mississippian and therefore, it is a written document of circumstances and situational melodrama that is the factual truth in occurrence in which it is dedicated to those who provided Poethics Oblivion Stareyes - Dark Sun with her poetic stories via poetry, prayer, tall tales, and parables.
