Book: Colder (The Tamelin Light Book 1) by Alexander Bryant
|4 stars, 2 reviews on Amazon|
Alexander Bryantabout this book: Cthulhu, Great Old Ones, Nyarlathotep, the Necronomicon: you may have heard these names. They are part of the Mythos, a grim universe of ancient star-spanning gods and the doom that inevitably follows any who discover them. The names permeate our culture surfacing in movies, books, and every genre of gaming. Short stories from dozens of authors are set here, amazing ones including modern tales such as "Cthulhu in the Jazz Age" and "Madness on the Orient Express".
They aren't really about the characters, though, and their short story form precludes complex plots.
What if, I asked myself fifteen years ago, someone wrote a Mythos novel investing in characters we come to know, people who exist not merely as conduits to madness but protagonists who share their lives with us, whom we root for rather than watch in fascinated horror their descent into darkness.
What if, too, the story could be grand and world-spanning with slowly converging plot lines each revealing part of an epic arc: that Earth has three species of humans created millennia ago by a meddlesome god? And that it might be possible for some of them to find out why.
What if I could write that?
"Colder" is a full novel and the first book of the Tamelin Light trilogy. Whether you love the Mythos or have never heard of it, allow me to invite you in to this, the third edition with a new introduction and other added passages setting up book two, a work about two-thirds complete that should be ready Winter of 2016.
