)-- A brilliant new fictional fantasy novel is now available on the market from Mak Publishing, featuring an exciting new young author named Keith Ishii. At a time when mythology and fantasy are becoming ever more popular in culture again, an exciting and fresh new tale is here that depicts the epic hero who is the forefather of them all: Gilgamesh, the Historical Sumerian King who lived about 2700 B.C., and whose fantastic tale is the oldest known epic story in the history of civilized man.
Keith Ishii does an exquisite job of enticing the readers with a mix of fictional fantasy, epic battles, compelling characters, and historical fact about ancient Sumerian life. The book, titled "Gilgamesh: The Sumerian King," is the first of a three part book series that will cover all 12 of the original clay tablets that made up the ancient story of Gilgamesh. In the story, Gilgamesh is part God, part man, and the son of a Goddess. He is the ruler of ancient Sumeria, and faces many challenges, least of which is a strange man from the forest who is sent by the Gods to rival him. Along the way Gilgamesh is faced with the daunting task of the politics of ruling, increasingly failing relations with their Egyptian neighbors, and continuous rebel uprisings from the oppressed Assyrian nation. It all concludes with an epic battle between the Gilgamesh and his challenger from the forest.
This incredible book is now available at www.mak-publishing.com, as will all future books from the exciting new author.
