H. G. Potter's
Realms of Whitehawk
the novice monk imagines that he can find something more glorious than monastery life, so he lets his brother-monks sell him to the traveling circus. Quickly his servitude becomes unbearable, and he manages to escape into the forbidden forest.
After a hazardous introduction to a band of real adventurers camping in the woods, Brother Jacob returns to the safety of his religious brothers, newly aware of the malevolent power which Whitehawk's fallen kingdoms are under, and of their high druid, the Dire of Melancholy, enemy of all righteousness.
The Friars of Whigg, a rival monastery, propose fighting the dark lord with ancient battle-magic: bring a troop of high-level wizards out from their tombs and use the devastating magic against his armies. But to invoke the blessing of Resurrection on the wizards of the ancient world would abuse the word of God.
As suspicion and fear engulf the monastery, Jacob is falsely accused of arcane summoning, and he is expelled. Joining up with a renegade band led by a brave but hot-headed amazon, he sets out into a world of sword and sorcery, a world at the brink of a new dawn of evil... But when the quest brings him into a contest of wits with the Dire of Melancholy himself, Jacob realizes that he could become the dupe by which all the world is deceived, and forfeit even his immortal soul.
“This Book is amazing! It’s a very interesting blend between christianity and epic fantasy. There are a lot of spiritual and philosophical discussions that makes you reconsider values and thoughts you take for granted.
It has a VERY good language. It’s in my opinion the fantasy book with THE best language.”
J. Lennquist, Goodreads
You worry and feel for the characters and their mission, and at the same time it seems you're reading a lost and forgotten tome of Christian history..."
