What if all the gods of the earth once existed? Long ago a superior race once came to earth and became humanity’s gods. The story is set on a post cataclysmic earth. Technology has vanished and been replaced by magick. Myths and monsters once again roam the land.
Blending H. P. Lovecraft’s mythos, with the numerous mythologies of the earth created a rich mythic landscape. Two groups of gods once descended on the earth, Lovecraft’s horrific alien, inhuman beings and the superior, god-like race, known as the Watchers, (the Elder Gods described by August Derleth).
Lightbringers is a Grimdark Fantasy set on a dying earth, twenty thousand years from now. The stars are right and the Great Old One asleep at the bottom of the world finally stirs in his terrible slumber. One reluctant hero, a half-breed child of the Elder gods, and his companions set out on a globe-spanning quest, populated by creatures of myth and beings of legend, to save the Earth from the evil that threatens to destroy it.
“David Price’s LIGHTBRINGERS is exactly what I look for in a fantasy novel. Fast paced, exhilarating and far removed from the cookie cutter fiction you run across all too often. Do yourself a favor and read this one!” — James A Moore, author of the SEVEN FORGES and TIDES OF WAR series of novels.
“With evocative language, powerful metaphor, and careful attention to detail, Price brings us a world we can immerse ourselves in and not want to leave.” — Irene Radford, author of The Dragon Nimbus Novels, Merlin’s Descendants Series, and The Stargods Trilogy
“David Price’s LIGHTBRINGERS mingles a broad spread of myth and genre tropes into a fascinating tale. Adding touches of history, locales and dark lore, Price weaves a fine tale that will grip even a casual reader. LIGHTBRINGERS splits the darkness of a lurid world. Fascinating, funny and paced to please, LIGHTBRINGERS shines.” — Steven L. Shrewsbury, Author of PHILISTINE, OVERKILL, WITHIN and co-author of KING OF THE BASTARDS (with Brian Keene) and BAD MAGICK (with Nate Southard).
