In a violent realm where monsters of all shapes and sizes rend each other limb from limb, one finds a way to alter this brutal tradition. Gathering his wits and steeling himself to face an eldritch threat with dimension altering power, Yarut, a stone-skinned swordsman, bands together with some fellow fiends to embark on a bizarre and deadly journey through vivid, vicious lands that are full of deep, dark secrets.
In another dimension, one much like our own, this bloodshed goes unnoticed as Jim Lobe, an aging man down on his luck, struggles to find meaning in life. His mind is plagued by the happenings of another world, which affects his decisions in negative and unpredictable ways, but soon he finds hope. He follows a glimmer along a dark path and chases his desire for a better life. Though, unknown to Jim, his destiny lies within the tentacles of the same eldritch threat oppressing Yarut and the others in the realm of nightly battles.
Two worlds push and pull one another through the fabric of reality. The space beyond and between realms get twisted and manipulated by a Dark God with ill intent.
Will Yarut's and Jim's adventures lead to death or salvation? Only those brave enough to enter the Inner Expanses will find out...

About the Author
I started writing my first book while working a boring, minimum wage job. I needed a creative outlet and had many ideas for stories, but needed to decided on a medium in which to tell those stories. I studied broadcast television and videography in college and love making videos and taking photos, but I felt that I just didn't have the time or budget to produce a TV show/movie of the quality I desired. Before television and film, books were the most common ways to tell a story, and many aspects of storytelling in more modern media originate from the world of literature. Film scripts, if you look closely, often resemble play scripts, like the kind created for theatrical performances. Fiction books have been a huge part of my life since I was a young child. My parents and sister would read to me often and I grew to love the stories they told me and soon began creating my own. Fantasy tales were especially alluring to me, being full of otherworldly wonders. Magic, alternate realities, and their possibilities drew such vivid and exciting images in my mind. I consider myself a dreamer with a goal, but those familiar with H. P. Lovecraft's 'Dreamcycle' know that this is not always a path that should be trodden. The mind can get lost. Lost in worlds real and not. Sometimes for longer than some would deem appropriate. Especially when overcome by the mundane, the mind seeks freedom from monotony.
