Aberdeen, SD, June 13, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Marilyn D. Privratsky today announced the release of her novel, The Prophet of the Pentacle, published by Outskirts Press. In this first work of her epic fantasy trilogy, The Chronicles of Farro, Rafar the Elder, the Osarian Knight’s Prophet of War, must find a way to stop Lord Jarden, the ancient evil one who has suddenly and accidentally been unleashed back into the world and is now bent on destroying it.
A great battle had been fought in ancient times between the ruthless Lord Jarden and the powerful sphinx Berecynthia. She defeated this evil one, but was mortally wounded before vanquishing him altogether. Five ages pass before a royal advisor investigating the mysterious and lonely Ice Isle inadvertently sets free the ancient evil one and becomes his host.
Only the sacred alliance of prophets called the Osarian Knights can now save the mystical realm of Andora from turning into a desolate wasteland of burnt ash, its innocent population annihilated by Lord Jarden’s perverse genocide.
The Prophet of the Pentacle is a high action story for readers of all ages and despite the fast paced revelation of one treacherous struggle after another, its underlying theme is one of the power of hope and the passion for doing good.
“Hope is underestimated, dashed, and most times scoffed at, but it always remains,” writes author Privratsky.
In today’s world there is opposition to everything one does. The Prophet of the Pentacle shows that the most effective way to battle this resistance is to maintain that deep hope and faith that can redefine the fundamentals of friendship and love.
The Prophet of the Pentacle is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
ISBN: 978-1-4327-4301-7 Format: 6.14 x 9.21 paperback SRP: $16.95
About the author:
Marilyn D. Privratsky is a first time published author. As a North Dakota native, she grew up with a love of art, a passion for writing, and a fondness for the outdoors. In her writing, she tries to merge all three worlds. She is also a movie and music aficionado and notes, “There is an energy in every movie you watch. It will either energize you, leave you deeply touched, make you laugh or -- best of all – leave you wanting more. Music has this same element. For me, as a writer, film and music help me put energy and music to the silent film that is playing in my mind. My hope is to take writing to a whole new level.”
