Masterfully crafted by S.G. Hensley, ‘Hoarfrost’ sees the world create an enemy-suppression virus that, upon unexpectedly escaping form the lab, becomes humanity’s ultimate downfall. Set in a post, post-apocalyptic world, readers will walk in the shoes of one man who is determined to beat the evil now ruling the planet and solve the riddle to eternal life. Deliberately written to manipulate the psyche of its readers, this thought-provoking adventure has already been hailed ‘unique and riveting’ by critics.
Bel Air, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/26/2015 -- While nobody can deny the fantasy genre's recent boom in popularity, both readers and critics are desperately crying out for wholly unique new narratives that don't succumb to recycling of the 'same-old' concepts. Thankfully, U.S. Navy Veteran S.G. Hensley is stepping up to the plate with gusto, fusing fantasy's traditional undertones with a unique brand of psychology that leaves readers spellbound.
'Hoarfrost' is the author's debut release, capturing man's self-created downfall and its desperate attempts to recover hundreds of years later.
Army scientists developed a pathogen capable of targeting specific genetic markers. To ensure the process could not be copied by adversaries, silicon, not carbon was used as the base substrate. No cure could be derived by examining the blood of the dead. Every precaution was taken during the research program - except one and the virus got out. The results were not what anyone could have predicted.
"As you'd expect, evil roams the land following the apocalypse, as every artifact and reminder of the previous world becomes extinct. Immortality runs high but, amid the threat of evil new creatures, one man emerges on a mission to fix things," explains the author. "He builds his own army, attempts to overthrow evil and reverse the plagues of the new world. This is his story, and much of it is inspired by the resilience and tenacity I witnessed first-hand during my time in the military."
Continuing, "It's a story that, ultimately, pays homage to the rock-solid core of the human spirit. It's a tale of people who, even during their darkest hours and with all odds stacked against them, are not afraid to pick themselves up and stand for what is important to them. Fusing the narrative with stunning illustrations by Duy Loufik, the entire package becomes timeless and ground-breaking. I hope my story stays with readers long after they turn the final page."
Early reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. For example, Brenda H. Moore comments, "A great story line with tons of action and great characters. I hope there's a sequel!"
Those appreciating deep concepts and engrossing twists are urged to purchase their copies without delay.
