Edmund A. M. Bataraabout this book: An epic fantasy on another world. With a modern twist.
WOULD YOU SURVIVE?
Be immersed in a grand and dangerous adventure. In a world strange yet familiar. A world where gods and magic still exist.
Mighty gods of mythology. Ancient lost civilizations. Mysterious artifacts. Dark Elder gods. You are already enmeshed in the Great Game of the various pantheons, where power is the ultimate prize. Meet Greek, Norse, Incan, Egyptian, Aztec, and Etruscan gods for a start. Unfortunately for you, these deities are not the only players and interested parties.
Encounter deities who don't like your good looks. Thor, Ares, and the Incan god Supay, to name three.
Meet huskarls. Hoplites. Valkyries. Berserkers. Champions. Mages of various stripes. Avatars of psychotic deities. Lamias. Drakontes. Ice giants. Vargar. Empusas. Jotnar. Keres. Dokkalfr. Sphinxes. Trolls. Chimeras. Ogres. Serpopards. Minotaurs. Gigas. Drakes. Yahuis. Vrykolakas. To name a few.
ADAR. A parallel world. A magical and idyllic tourist destination. Extreme sports included.
Oh, there's no coffee either.

Book One January 2018 Amazon reviews:
• "A worthwhile book to read."
• Great mythic adventure - "I thoroughly enjoyed this trip into another world where the gods still exist. I will read the rest of the series"
• Great story and I like the premise of it - "Great story, and I like the premise of it as well. Kudos to the author for doing so much research into the history as well!!"
Goodreads reviews - 270 ratings resulting in 4.07 stars.
Author's notes - I have tried to adhere to written mythology as much as possible. Where different accounts exist, the author claims literary liberality in using elements of what is available. Even names of places and persons are based on appropriate historical and language elements. Chapter endnotes try to make the reading immersion more effective by letting the reader continue with the book without recourse to checking the meaning of the terms and names used in the story. Have fun reading! And surviving Adar.
