Book Cover and Synopsis
Book Title: Fezariu’s Epiphany
Author: David M. Brown
Genre: Epic Fantasy
12-year-old Fezariu thought his mother died when he was little, but when his beloved stepfather dies the boy discovers she is alive and well – and working at the most famous brothel in all of Elenchera. When she cruelly rejects him it’s more than he can bear, and he runs away to join a band of ruthless soldiers for hire. The Merelax Mercenaries will fight for anyone who can pay them, no matter the justice of the cause.
Fezariu grows up among the soldiers and becomes one of them. He thinks his time with the mercenaries has hardened him. But a campaign in his old home town pushes him too far, and he discovers what really happened to his mother. Maybe there are some things money shouldn’t buy… and maybe it’s time Fezariu took his revenge.
David Brown could be considered a fantasy fanatic, especially since he has spent the last 10 years developing a 47,000-year history for his fictional world of Elenchera. When converting his obsession into literary form, David commits himself to a rigorous writing and editing process before his work can meet his approval. Combined with the critical eye of his wife and a BA Honors in History and English, David’s dedication leads him to his goal of inspiring readers through heartfelt stories and characters.
Although David is inspired primarily by fantasy fiction, he also finds his muse in the form of anime, world cinema, history, and biographies. His own books, Fezariu’s Epiphany and the in-progress A World Apart, combine aspects from worlds both old and new into compelling tales of a world not soon forgotten., David himself certainly does not lack a spirit of adventure; in fact, he left his job in 2007 in order to spend a month traveling. Second only to meeting and marrying his wife, David counts this as one of the most amazing experiences of his life. Only $.99 at Amazon
Lisa’s Thoughts -
I was not sure of the book when I first started reading it. I typically stay within the paranormal genre, vampires, witches, fae, werewolves. But as I started to read more into the book I was captivated. Jessamine was a woman who risked her life in order to bring her unborn child into the world. Fate brought her to a bakery were she met Peter. Life seemed to take a turn for the good until one fateful day that threatens the lives of many. Fezariu runs to a unknown future to escape his past. Through his journeys David drives us into the story line on a constant and steep roller coaster you can't help but feel the emotions that each of the characters are feeling can't stop turning pages and laughing and crying through the trials and tribulations that Fezariu must go through to escape the troubled past in order to go into the future. He was given a true friend in Tessera who helped him overcome his feelings to make it to his true destiny. I would love to see more in this storyline I never wanted it to end. Definitely a 5 star book. May not start off at the first chapter but please continue you will get drawn into the story and never want it to end.
I am a single mother of a very active 6 year old boy. So just by saying this you know why I need to read. Reading has always been my so called drug of choice. I read several books a day if I can. My typical genre is paranormal, YA, with romance mixed in. If you have vampires, witches, werewolves, or Greek mythology you have me from the start. I fell in love with paranormal with authors such as Christine Feehan Carpathian novels, Sherrilyn Kenyon Dark Hunter novels. Just enough romance mixed into the paranormal.
