Lightbringers, David Price
The Age of Myth and Legends (Crossroads Press)
An apocalyptic fairy tale of Lovecraftian proportions, Lightbringers weaves real world history and mythology with fantastic and terrible imaginations . . . creating a future that is both beautiful and terrifying. The ancient conflict that has waged on Earth for eons between two rival groups of alien gods, one from the bright center of the galaxy and one from the dark abyss beyond is finally nearing its end. A prophecy foretelling the birth of children of the bright gods, the Lightbringers, is fulfilled and dark forces immediately set out to destroy them.
Raised in secrecy on a mysterious isle by a group of magickal women called the Circle of Swans, one of the children, Deykin is believed to be safe until one fateful day when his world unravels. Fleeing all he has ever known, the young godling begins a quest that will take him and a few loyal companions around the world in search of the clues that will reveal his destiny. Evil ever at their heels, their journey is fraught with peril and, at times, wonder.
Can this young man with awakening god-like powers truly be the one to hold back the darkness that threatens to engulf the Earth? His friends believe so and they will stand by his side until the very end. Will it be enough? Time is short and the stars are almost right for the Sleeper to awaken from his ages long slumber and exact his vengeance upon the world that has kept him imprisoned for far too long.
