Dawn of Darkness published by Outskirts Press
Jeremy Barandela’s latest fantasy novel, Dawn of Darkness, is the second in a seven-book series titled United We Stand. At over 400 pages, Dawn of Darkness is an expansive, epic adventure aimed at the young adult audience, and especially to fans JK Rowling, Christopher Paolini, and JRR Tolkien.
In Dawn of Darkness, demons and dragons have been reawakened in the world of Sargoria. Marik, a cousin and former friend of Cedric, the book’s hero, has been consumed by evil, and his plan to resurrect the fallen mage Zar Khan has been successful. Zar Khan’s return has beckoned the advent of his former allies: the demon soldiers of the Abyss, the dark dragons, and The Collective. Cursed with a lifetime of endless torment and pain relieved only by the bloodshed of innocents, The Collective is by far the most dangerous of Zar Khan’s revived allies. They are a group of six wraithlike men who specialize in brutal, magical assassination, and they have made it their top priority, as commanded by their dark master, to capture Cedric . . . or kill him.
Dawn of Darkness is a battle between good and evil, a battle that will determine the fate of the world that Jeremy Barandela has created.
