An ancient time. A land of scorching sands, iron and blood. Man looks to the heavens trusting and believing, unaware the final, deadly throws of the gods’ great game are about to be cast. Who could stand against them? The warrior Ehrunnar, whom the gods have tried to break time and again, is willing to defy them. And if he alone can challenge the heavens, who is he?
Iron Sun, Silver Moon is, at heart, the bloody and tragic story of an anti-hero’s journey, told against a richly populated and complexly realised, fictional historical background. Through trial and ordeal – where he is dogged at every step by the horrors of his past – the dark character of Ehrunnar finally discovers the intensity and redeeming power of true love. But this comes at a supreme cost and great, personal sacrifice.
More than that, it is a reflective glimpse into the founding stages and eventual creation of a belief system; a chronological narrative that explores the struggles of change against an accepted sense of purpose and the influence of the past on fate and belief. We witness the richness of Ehrunnar’s world, explore its origins through the eyes of naivety; see first-hand the cultural and ethical influence of interventionist deities and the persuasive authority of ancient, hidden teachers upon its peoples. Here in his journey is mirrored the foundation of joy and misery, and the mysterious, metaphysical realm he, and all others who are touched kindly or cruelly by divine hands, inhabits.
