A dark historical fantasy novel, by Kris Kramer. First book of the Dominion series.
Sanctuary is really a touching story of the human condition and what we are all capable of depending on the circumstances.
In 9th century Britain, chaos rules as kingdoms splinter, Vikings invade from all corners, and lives and fortunes are lost to those with the biggest sword and the smallest shreds of morality. When a young priest, Daniel, witnesses a lone warrior save his village from savage raiders, he believes he’s seen a miracle, and he follows the reclusive warrior on his mysterious trek across the island, hoping to find his own path in this brutal and unforgiving world.
Daniel’s journey takes him to places he’d long since left, forcing him to face his past, along with dour dwarves, canny druids, and an army of Viking warriors. When he meets a captive woman with strange abilities amongst the ruins of humanity’s savage and unforgiving past, Daniel will face his true enemy, a powerful demon, who waits for his dominion over man to be complete.
The first book in the Dominion series.
Sanctuary, along with the rest of the Dominion series, pulls heavily from religion, legends, and the mythology of the time, shaping it to tell a new story of our own dark and tumultuous history. Christian fables, angels and demons, King Arthur and the stories of Camelot, norse gods, Viking and scandinavian legends, Celtic mythology, druidic rituals, elves, dwarves, the Otherworld – it all plays a part in this story of an unseen war between the gods. Get started now with part one of an epic historical fantasy adventure, and prepare yourself for a long and riveting tale!
