A hero's journey starts with a single step. For some, that step starts on a broken foundation.
So it was with Diondray Azur. His adventure began when he learned that all he had known about his family—all he had known about his world—wasn't true at all.
He swore to himself to find the truth. As he set out upon his quest, he discovered an old book. What was this dusty old tome?
His discovery turned out to be the Book of Kammbi, a book handed down by the ancients and lost to time. Inside, he read about a long-lost prophecy, which in order to be fulfilled, must be set in motion by the descendant of a great leader.
At first, he doubted the book. Stubbornly so. After all, he'd just had all he'd known about his past blow up in his face as a lie.
Yet, as challenges mount along his journey, signs begin to point to him as the only one who could fulfill those timeworn words.
He would stop at nothing to uncover the truth. What will happen, though, when he does?
Diondray's Discovery is an adventure fantasy novel that will transport you to the world of Kammbia, a magical place in which Diondray discovers his inner hero.
If you can't get enough of rich new worlds, breathtaking adventure, introspective characters, and subtle social commentary, then you're ready to ride along with Diondray as he discovers his destiny.
"to describe novelist Marion Hill's first novel in a superlative, the word ambitious strikes the first and last chord. Not satisfied with simply telling a story, he creates his own world and language, and this boldness and audacity often hit the mark. His idealistic surrogate, Diondray Azur, is on a quest; not of his own choosing but his skepticism and curiosity lead him on a path to his destiny - to ultimately unite a people. Hill is at once an artist, employing a broad lexicon to include words such as themily, and a land where his characters commit acts of passha for which one might ask forgiveness, but it is not forgiveness one necessarily craves or is granted. He paints lush landscapes and had one not been familiar with Wakanda, at the very least, Hill is prescient. Moreover, Tolkien's Lord of the Rings comes to mind in this other world Hill has created, his own Middle Earth with less pretense."--Carey, Goodreads reviewer
