John Hennessy about this book: Life Descending is about a man, Tom Navo, who is resurrected on the edge of Hell, gaining new memories as he loses his past on Earth. When his discovers that his mind has been altered, and that his supposed family is missing, he goes seeking answers. A clue to a lost ancient suit of armor gives him hope of finding his answers in its enchanted power ...but he is not the only one searching for such a powerful weapon. I was inspired to write Life Descending after my sophomore year of high school when I read Diablo: Legacy of Blood. That book sparked my own ideas about tainted armor and a man battling his own thoughts. My classes at Western Washington have also been a large part of my inspiration while writing the novel.
Fantasy/epic/sci-fi enthusiasts will enjoy Life Descending most. The title was pretty easy. Tom Navo's life just keeps spiraling down, or descending, and there you have it Life Descending. Editing and revision was a tough, long process. I learned so many things, it is impossible to write them down. One thing that I'll note is that I learned the parts of medieval plate armor, and the many weapons throughout our long history of warfare. The first four chapters are available for free at my website. If you are a fantasy fan, give it a try, and though I can't promise, I doubt you'll be disappointed.
