Toronto, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/26/2015 -- While the fantasy genre has long been a staple of the literary landscape, both readers and critics are currently crying out for wholly unique new narratives that don't succumb to recycling of the 'same-old' concepts. Thankfully, Canadian writer Shon J. Dominique is stepping up to the plate with gusto.
Dominique's debut creation, 'The Chronicles of Exzolion', transports readers into a world vastly different from their own, as a new breed of hero emerges from the cosmos.
The planet Samara, once a beautiful world inhabited by beautiful creatures, is shattered as a race prepares for war. Billions of light-years away, a five-year-old boy watches his mother die without any idea that he is destined to challenge this world and the forces that threaten it. Exzolion will one day risk everything to save them all from the brink of extinction. Several years later, nineteen-year-old Exzolion is haunted by a recurring dream that beckons him to another place.
As he falls asleep one last time, he knows his moment has come. When he awakens in a room with an old wizard, Exzolion is told he has been transported to Samara, a world desperately in need of a hero to rescue its empress fairy from a dark lord's clutches. As Exzolion begins training for his mission, he soon realizes he has been gifted with special powers that allow him to fly, slay dragons, and lead an army.
Now all he has to do is try not to fall in love with the woman he needs to save. In this fantasy novel, a young hero's hidden powers awaken as he bravely steps through a portal to battle dark forces and discover his true destiny.
"I've spent hundreds, possibly thousands of hours crafting the narrative, and the time has now come to share it with the world," explains the author, who had to delay marketing his work due to his active service with the Canadian Forces. "I'm thrilled to finally get a chance to transport readers into my imagination and into a world that is radically different from anything else currently on the fantasy market. It's a gripping adventure to say the least."
Continuing, "Creating a story of this magnitude requires a lot of deep thought and bold imagination. I wanted to put something together that bucked its genre's trends and offered readers something radically different, even something that they had never seen before. I believe I've put a wholly-unique new spin on the concepts of good and evil, as well as the heroes that attempt to juggle it."
With the book's demand rapidly increasing, interested readers are urged to purchase their copies without delay.
