As the gods battle in the heavens, darkness descends on earth.
The Keepers of Nine guide the primordial Kurintor warriors protecting the mortal world. But after a god’s corruption empowered an ancient demon, her manipulations brought the Kurintor to the brink of extinction.
Can the Keepers of Nine awaken the Kurintor descendants to defend the Fifth Kingdom, or will the demons of Ashemohn succeed in consuming the mortal world?
It isn’t prophecy, destiny, or a birthright, that will decide the fate of the mortal world. It is choice.
“An attention to atmosphere and psychological insights is just one of the strengths that lend a touch of the fantastic to even ordinary scenes and descriptions.” D. Donovan – Midwest Book Review
“I am a huge sci-fi and fantasy fan. Some days I believe I’ve simply read too much in these genres, so it’s just too difficult to find a new writer, book, or series that can really excite or surprise me. Then, on other days, I read a book like Kurintor Nyusi by Aaron-Michael Hall. Suddenly, I’m excited by a new writer and I’m seeing new things in one of my favorite genres.”
