The first book of the initial trilogy
The King of Light the Order of the Dark Gods (Wisdom House edition) is written in the same aulic style as the author’s first novel, but differs from the use of words, as it turns out to be a less sought-after but more dynamic language than the first novel, where the plot takes place slowly here instead. This work plays a lot on the dynamism of events, it is rich in plot and details. The story takes place during the end of the first crusade, where a crusader named Fedrick intrigued by a very particular light, ventures inside the Holy Sepulcher, where inside he finds a green stone that, taking it for himself, falls from his hand and it breaks.
From this stone comes an evil being that stuns him and sends him to another world other than his, there he discovers that the battle that was about to take place disappears completely, leaving room for a desert of sand with nothing around him. Deciding to continue towards an unknown street, he embarks on a long adventure in search of Isabel, a girl he met in Turin, to whom, however, this city will result in this parallel world, the capital of a forbidden and evil empire.
Together with other cities such as: “Lyon” and “Prague”, Fedrick discovers that these cities are the capitals of a world divided by beings who call themselves: “Dark Gods”. It will be up to Fedrick and his friends Jehrais and Radamantio to try to permanently destroy these evil ones from the world.
The work is a fantasy novel written in a fairytale key and is presented in the same aulic style as the author’s first novel, but differs from the use of words, as it turns out to be a less sought-after but more dynamic language than the first novel, where here the plot unfolds slowly. Instead The King of Light the Order of the Dark Gods plays a lot on the dynamism of events, is rich in plot and details, as well as in metaphors, oxymorons and at times prevails in an Italian baroque style of the seventeenth century.
The book is divided into ten chapters:
- Chapter I – A parallel world
- Chapter II – Gaza and its darkness
- Chapter III – The Emperor of Evil
- Chapter IV – Kinsguard and the Dark Order
- Chapter V – Towards the Forbidden Empire
- Chapter VI – In the middle of the storm
- Chapter VII – To distant lands
- Chapter VIII – The awakening of the kings
- Chapter IX – Turin and Isabel
- Chapter X – Towards the dawn of new whys
This work differs in some features, especially on the name of Fedrick’s girl. Her name was changed by the author for personal reasons, in fact in this version the name of Eleonor is still present, later changed to Isabel. Also, since the novel already featured a girl named Isabel, that is Flemgard’s girlfriend, her name was changed to Elizabeth. Furthermore, this edition still comes with old details that the author wanted to cancel over time, including some jokes about the characters, as well as certain metaphors and descriptions that were too incomprehensible and easy to misunderstand. Furthermore, in this edition there are no artwork as it is present in the previous version of Youcanprint.
