Giveaway #1: Dark Lands: Requiem by Lyn I. Kelly

Hey ya'll,
I know that it has been a hot minute since I have made a blog post due to college keeping me busy. However, I am back and ready for a lot more gossip, book reviews, and editorials about some major topics happening in the publishing world. And to kick start my revamping I am doing a giveaway for Lyn I. Kelly to showcase his latest work Dark Lands: Requiem! I have already began to read Kelly's novel and it has this wow factor that amazes me.

The winner will receive one paperback copy of Dark Lands: Requiem is a new twist on a tale of good versus evil. The book is a culmination of Lyn I. Kelly’s lifelong love of writing and quest to bring unique stories to the public.

Dante Alighieri, in his Divine Comedy, colored a view of Purgatory that has long reigned in the imagination. To some, Purgatory is a place where purification happens and redemption can be found. To others, it is a space for tortured souls living in limbo. All agree, though, that Dante is the definitive source for that world.

In his new book Dark Lands: Requiem, author Lyn I. Kelly offers a new twist on a tale of good versus evil in a setting seemingly nearby Dante’s Purgatory. A culmination of Kelly’s lifelong love of writing and quest to bring unique stories to the public, the story follows a brother and sister as they wake to find themselves in a land existing between life, death, and time, where the fate of the universe hangs in the balance.

“I started contemplating the idea of this other world of which we are completely ignorant, where the fate of our world is eternally in play between the most benevolent and most wretched souls to have ever lived,” Kelly said. “I began to flesh out the idea, and Dark Lands: Requiem was born.”

While Kelly has been creating unique stories his entire life for comics and other periodicals, Dark Lands: Requiem is his first novel. He feels strongly that the fantasy genre has enough witches, zombies, werewolves, and vampires to go around, but there is always room for something new. He set out to find a fresh take where everything previously known is suspended in constant turmoil.

“Independent authors like myself have creativity to add to the marketplace. Dark Lands: Requiem is different in that it does not offer warring factions of vampires and werewolves or an authoritarian government determined to crush all resistance, nor does it take place during any kind of apocalypse,” Kelly said.
