J.M. Diener

Diener - Seer - 2023 Cover

The Warrior King holds sway over the Seven Nations and all is firmly within his grasp. Relishing his reign of terror, chaos, and war, Elam fears nothing. To him the gods are petty annoyances that merely help solidify his reign and he regards himself as all-powerful. There is no threat to him, save one. An ancient prophecy tells of one who will rise to defeat the Warrior King and reinstate a government of peace and justice. He will dispense Truth to the Nations and teach about the One God, the Creator. He is called the Seer.

The prophecy is about to come true in a hidden enclave deep within the Flatlands as an aged priest seeks out the man who is chosen to become the Seer. Together the old man and the young step from the safety of the shadows of history to walk in the danger of full light in a quest to meet the Creator face-to-face and to carry his judgment to the Warrior King and the Nations.

But just as the forces of good and light are beginning to stir, the lord of darkness is marshalling his troops to stop this single threat at any cost.

Seer is the first novel completed by J.M. Diener, though the second one written (after the first version of Witches’ Wager). It was initially published under J.M. Diener’s other pen name Josh Malcolm and meant to be the first in a series of novels, which the author continued, but never completed. Perhaps, one day, this one will be reworked, and the series will be rebooted, but for now it’s a standalone work.

While the author is pleased with the epic scope of the adventure, many of the characters, and some of the underlying assumptions of the tale, he still finds that his youth and inexperience shine through in certain places where the required suspension of disbelief is too great. Thus, the book is presented for your personal reading delight as a free e-book in PDF and Mobipocket format, hosted by the publisher Hawke AI.
