Tom's first day of work. Betty Ann's strange date. Emma, the Queen. They all come to stand before and enter the low, pink building that is a gateway into worlds beyond their imagination. Tom meets the Bringer of the Light and is instructed to find his friend Onis and destroy the Queen of the Undead and Betty Ann. In the World of the Undead, he finds both Onis and truth: the Bringer of Light is the Bringer of Death. They commission the fairy Schazel to fight the Bringer and help save the two rulers. During their perilous quest they question the reasons they fight, the rulers for whom they are fighting, the very friendship they forge. Tom and Onis find another partner and friend, Dmitry, after Schazel gives his life, and together, fight the Bringer of the Light, only to discover the terrible secret the three rulers share.

Although this is more of a novella than an actual novel, the elements of the story carry it along in such a way that the fast read, and fast-paced read, is an enjoyable, pleasant experience. Its young author captures the cycle of life in a manner that is quite different than many other conventional adaptations. After all, it is true that the only thing we hate is what we are; and Tom, the book's main character, nearly destroys himself in the process of discovering who he is, and what he has become a part of.
I like how this book is represanttive of the way of how life works, like a great big circle, and how the chracters seem really realistic.
There are a few typos in here, and the work is a tad short, but other than that it is a wonderful read. The imagery is fantastic, and the wording poetic. I would like to see what else this author has done.
Why there is no synopsis, I don't understand; and how can any readers know what they're buying without one? Basically, it's about these three men who have to save the Queen of the Undead and Betty Ann from destruction by the Bringer of the Light. As they travel through the World of the Undead, World of the Living, and the land of Gruss, they question their friendship and realize why it exists as it does - but in the end, there is a secret the three rulers share that will ultimately undo everything they've worked for. It's a great read, from a first-time author.
