“I was content to merely be supreme guardian. Now, I will become a god.”
Jed Hayes was a typical teenager in most ways; that is until he somehow found himself transported to the land of Forenia, a medieval realm recently conquered and united by the ruthless General Grancaliga, who seeks to ascend to godhood. Caught between Grancaliga’s armies and the tiny resistance to his rule, Jed is tasked with escorting Kara, a mysterious young woman who holds the key to thwarting Grancaliga’s plot. In the process, Jed is forced to overcome numerous challenges, confront his personal demons, and live up to his family’s legacy of service in the U.S. military.
The Legend of Forenia: The Twilight Kingdom is an examination of masculinity, megalomania, and courage. With parallels to the modern world, T.J. Martinell’s fantasy novella takes an energetic look at the struggles of young men, the twisted ambitions of our elite, and the sharp contrast between the bloodless nature of our society and the lofty virtues of our forerunners.
Originally serialized on Terror House Magazine in 2020, Terror House Press is proud to bring this memorable classic into print.
“Outstanding! Author T.J. Martinell has done it again! This time, it’s a pulp fantasy that is packed with action, flowing dialogue, and a story worthy of the swords-and-sorcery classics. Give us more, please!” — Vincent J. LaRosa, Masculine Geek
“A wonderfully imaginative tale of a young man’s search for his place in the world. I enjoyed it immensely.” — K.H. Mezek, author of Luminaria
“When Jed Hayes inadvertently travels through a portal in the snow and finds himself in another world, he becomes part of a legendary quest as he joins up with Kara, the last remaining scribe of the Forenian language. Along with her loyal guardian, Telman, Jed and Kara attempt to form a resistance against General Grancaliga, a man whose ambitions drive him to want to become a god. Following the triad as they battle impossible odds in their flight from danger and attempt to pursue the threads of an ancient legend is a gripping adventure. It’s well worth the read.” — Leslie D. Soule, author of Fallenwood and My Mentor, Death
