It's ALL gone wrong.
The weapon is broken, and cannot be repaired.
Many times the Rell have gone back in time to force Kolob to kill his infant self, yet each time they have failed. On this most recent attempt, terrible changes are seen in the timeline, beginning with a shocking death that will impact the fates of friend and foe alike.
Cracked Dagger is the beginning.
The beginning of Graid's awakening; of Kolob's Ascension. The beginning of the sprawling, epic battle between the TELREC and OLMAC that continues through eight books with a wide ranging cast of characters who are tested in ways that cannot be believed.
It's all gone wrong, and despite the best of intentions, the most heroic of deeds, it may NEVER be made right again.
About the Author
It's been a long journey writing these books. I suppose I should tell you about the big work; Allies and Adversaries. It is a massive exercise in world-building. I've spent almost ten years writing the eight volumes that make up this title. It isn't set on the Earth, which was important for me, as I wanted it to be all mine, from its history, to is future, to the relationship the planet Novan has to the rest of the universe. Like any long work, it requires a little bit of patience, especially with the first volume, Cracked Dagger. But I assure you, the path is well laid out, and has many exciting twists and turns leading to a satisfying conclusion.
Seventh Age of Man is set on Earth, and has three volumes: Regeneration, Maturation, and Dessication. Dessication is due out soon, hopefully by the end of 2014. It's an epic story based in war, which chronicles the rise and fall of Brian Torres, the boy who grows into a tyrant who controls all of Earth.
