Howdy folks. I hope you’re having a wonderful day off, or at least a quieter day at work. And if you are taking advantage of an easier, calmer day, why not also spend some time reading a great debut? That’s what we have waiting for you in a new debut epic fantasy, Assault on Devil’s Den: Champion of Valor Book 1 (The Sarcasca Chronicles).
The first book in what is sure to be a great series by Eric Balch, Assault on Devil’s Den is epic fantasy at its finest. You’d be forgiven for not realizing that this is a debut, as Balch has everything lined up succinctly: a beautiful cover, a map that’s fully-realized, and of course writing that will keep you turning pages. The world of Sarcasca is some serious high fantasy, with a smattering of varied and interesting races. Readers will feel transported to Balch’s world, and will no doubt wish to stay in it as long as possible.
Pelagius, servant of Ender, god of valor, is haunted by his recent and brutal battles. He is tired, battle-weary, and ready to put down the mantle of hero. Seeking a reprieve from the nightmarish memories of his endeavors, he and his companion, Bojan, rest in a small hamlet. However, it seems as though the once-proud hero can never be free from danger.
During his stay, he and Bojan witness a terrible magical attack. The mysterious Green-Eyed Man uses dark magic that steals the very souls of its victims.
Realizing that the source of the Green-Eyed Man’s power is none other than the soul-devouring Babu, Pelagius knows there is only one thing he can do. He must infiltrate the fortress of Devil’s Den and kill Babu once and for all. But to reach him—let alone stand a chance at defeating him—they must fortify themselves with a company of heroes from all over the kingdom of Waskan and beyond.
Will Pelagius and Bojan be able to unite a band of diverse heroes to try and conquer evil? Or will a series of unforeseen obstacles along their way stop them before they can take a stand in the Devil’s Den?
Those looking to take their first steps into a land of many kingdoms—filled with myths and monsters and lore like you wouldn’t believe—need to look no further than Assault on Devil’s Den. Balch has created a world that is expansive and interesting, and that world informs a story that readers will love to dive into. Readers will also love this new fellowship, a party of atypical construct, which makes the journey all the more fascinating.
