Chronomancer and the Time God Book 1: Death of a Paradise

“Evil times haunted Zarethea.” So, the bard’s tale begins…

Over a millennium since the God Wars ended, the world of Zarethea remains a battle ground. Though the gods no longer walk the land, their discordant theocracies continue the war the deities once started.

The Chronomancer, a mysterious sorcerer of unknown origin, threatens to plunge the world into a state of chaos and bloodshed by reviving Rael, the dark god of time.

Aleister, a young sorcerer from the magical kingdom of Mystas, finds himself tasked with preventing Rael’s return and saving the war-torn world. To succeed, he must lead three rival priests of warring theocracies on a mission to reach the mythical city of Cockaigne.

Along the way, he must somehow prevent the kleptomaniac priest of freedom from robbing the party blind, restore the confidence of the fallen paladin of order, and help the peaceful priestess of neutrality discover her inner strength.

Yet, it is inside Cockaigne, the mysterious paradise of eternal youth and joy, where Aleister’s true test awaits. For beneath its seemingly peaceful façade dwells a divine evil which even Aleister’s powers may not be enough to stop.

The people of Cockaigne are rescued, and the first of the four artifacts needed to prevent Rael, the dark god of time, from unleashing his genocide is secured.

In need of help, Aleister calls Brayden, his school roommate, to guide the party through the mysterious land of Reigan and assist in a risky scheme to acquire the second artifact. Yet when conflict blooms within the party and new relationships flourish with outsiders, Aleister finds himself struggling to maintain control over the company.

Meanwhile, powerful and ruthless enemies pursue Aleister and his companions across the lands. Unexplainable events force Aleister to question everything he knows about the world. And a mysterious prophesy concerning the gods soon causes even Aleister to doubt his path.

With everything falling apart and an impenetrable fortress lurking before them, can the companions survive a betrayal in the Reigan woods?
