Overview

More than three thousand five hundred years old Zsallia Marieko is a solitary immortal, the only one of her kind and very much the pagan barbarian at heart, yet tempered by her centuries lived during the emergence of modern Western civilization. She shares her life story with a skeptical author when she finds herself forced to confront what it means to cease living outside society and join the world around her, to take up the benefits and responsibilities of living openly and asking people to simply accept who and what she is. Touching only the first 1500 years of her life the tale she reveals is by turns pathetic, endearing, unnerving and horrifying as the reader witnesses her climb from nameless slave to terrifying goddess, then her plunge into murderous insanity until she emerges humbled, remade and utterly alone.

    Amazing, But In a Refreshingly Different Way

    I was lucky enough to have John lend me a copy of this novel in its final stages when it was close to completion. What I have to say is John and Dean have expertly crafted an amazing story that is told in such a unique and genuine way that it really pulls you in and tries to make you believe it's real. The character of Zalia is masterfully intricate and defined in a way that is unknown to readers. While this novel's content and pacing is not for everyone, it's superb for the people who can take it in and of itself for an awesome read. Kudos guys. Hope you come out with a sequel.
