Masterfully crafted by Charles Carfagno Jr., ‘The Beginning Of The End’ marks a new dawn for the fantasy genre with the launch of the ‘A Demon’s Quest’ series. Fanatical humanoids, monstrous insects and classic swordplay collide in a world-saving novel that takes character and plot development deeper than most books in its genre. This edge-of-the-seat intricacy has earned a flood of praise from critics, with Reader’s Favorite writing “A Demon's Quest fires on all cylinders from the first page and leaves you wanting more.”
Gilbertsville, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2014 -- While nobody can deny the fantasy genre’s obvious boom of late, readers and critics alike are crying out for wholly-unique new narratives that don’t succumb to recycling of the ‘same-old’ concepts. Author Charles Carfagno Jr. has answered the call with gusto, melding everything that is great about epic fantasy with a narrative so in-depth and vivid that it almost reads like a movie.
‘The Beginning Of The End’ forms part one of the ‘A Demon’s Quest’ series. Readers are urged to leave their preconceived ideas behind, because Carfagno throws the fantasy genre’s rulebook out of the window to present a multifaceted adventure that leaves nothing to the imagination.
In a world where monsters are running rampant, demons are emerging from the underworld to stake their claim and distinguishing friend from foe is nearly impossible. A few brave humans will embark on a quest to save their home. Some will volunteer for the cause, while others will be forced into it. Accused of crimes he didn't commit, Torhan is manipulated into joining the fight while proving his innocence. On a journey where danger waits at every turn, Torhan must rely not only on his skill with a blade, but will need to utilize every ounce of his resourcefulness if he is to survive long enough to clear his name.
“I didn’t want to just throw a story together and rush it out to the marketplace,” admits Carfagno. “That’s what a passive author does. Instead, I invested hundreds of hours into diligently developing my depiction of the Earth, its problems and its creatures, to offer a level of depth that is often glossed over by clichés in other similar works.”
Continuing, “The goal is to make readers feel like they’re living the story; unable to put the book down as they get to know the characters and feel their hearts literally pound as they all face danger together.”
It appears to be working. Since its release, the book has garnered a string of rave reviews.
“I like my books smart, well written, gripping, full of action, and with a sense of humor. A Demon's Quest fires on all cylinders from the first page and leaves you wanting more. This is a must-read for D&D and fantasy fans,” says Stephen Fisher of Reader’s Favorite.
Danita Dyess adds, “I couldn't wait to turn the page. I willingly succumbed to his fictitious story depicting another time and another place, interwoven with age-old lessons of honesty, loyalty, courage and patience.”
Amazon user ‘Saturn’s Dragon’ praised the book’s non-stop-action approach, writing, “Charles Carfagno's book is a spellbinding tale of courage, skill and friendship. Reminiscent of the "Song of Ice and Fire" series, the author introduces several interesting characters in a story that combines the age-old challenges of good versus evil with the fighting style of martial arts and larger than life monsters.”
With volume two due for imminent release, interested readers are urged to get started on the series as soon as possible.
