A long time ago, an ancient god sought to pool the powers of his brethren in order to create beauty out of chaos. He created the Divine Covenants, or Accords, which bound the gods’ powers together. They could have lived forever, peaceably and surrounded by paradise. However, one ancient god soon used the pooled powers for evil and was banished by his own son to eternal confinement.

Years later, in 1882 Atlantis Time, the continents still exist in the form of Pangaea—one huge, connected continent. The son who once banished his own father still lives as the god of war. His name is Arylos, and he has forgotten about his confined family foe—until he witnesses a suspicious murder in the midst of dreams. The murder turns out to be fact; someone has conjured Arylos’s father and died in the process.

Now, Aryas is back. He longs for power and revenge, against both his son and all of human kind. With the help of his Black Dog soldiers, Arylos must find a way to return his father to the grave. But does he have the strength to condemn his own father twice? The fate of Atlantis and all of reality is in Arylos’s hands, for if Pangea falls, so will reality, sucked into the dark madness of one power-hungry immortal.

cover_smallHeavily inspired by the traditional founding fathers of Russian literature, and a muse, I found inspiration in their works and attained a way to channel himself through writing. After reading Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin’s “Eugene Onegin”(a novel in verse) and Mikhail Yuryevich Lermontov’s “Demon,” I found admiration for their works, as well as their style of writing, known as iambic tetrameter—a meter in poetry in which each line consists of four iambic feet, or iambs. Completing the scheme, each line rhymes in either varied or an unvaried rhyme scheme, depending on the work. For my style of writing I chose a varied scheme, and began “In Oblivion” in early 2009, completing it in July, 2013. Constructing the main structure of the novel while leaving empty spaces for words which later would fill in the missing links, I focused on the story—later finessing it through editing.

About the book:

Lethian, a highly respected captain, goes through multiple trials—through the world of intricate environments, spontaneous battle scenes, and strange personages—to find his beloved, Anella, torn from him by the self-righteous gods. Though the outcome of his trials are uncertain, one thing is for sure—his wrath will be felt.

In Oblivion is a novel in verse, based in the time of Greek mythology, with the focus on the personages and their trials. It is written entirely in iambic tetrameter with a varied rhyme scheme throughout. Often melancholy yet spontaneous and energetic, its themes are that of light and darkness, kindness and malice, perseverance and despair, humility and egotism, order and chaos, hatred and love.
