Sylvanus: Book of Alce by R.P. O'Ryan
They thought he was the savior.
An ancient prophecy tells of the coming of the Promised One, who would restore peace and harmony to the land in the name of their God, Eyu. When the twins are born, Michael and Lucero, people believe one will be him.
When Lucero travels to the otherworld as a missionary, he befriends Dancing Elk, a local native.
But when an evil mage meddles, the beast that arises causes destiny to change, and the prophecy is called into question. Now, a demon is on the prowl. All that oppose him fall, and all that join him partake in the carnage. His goal, is to destroy all that is known and recreate it to his liking.
Pulled into the demon’s machinations, an unwilling Dancing Elk must rescue creation from its supposed savior.
In Rise of the Demon, the trilogy’s first volume, a beast rises, and his mission may destroy creation. The shaman-to-be, Dancing Elk, becomes entangled in the ancient prophecy, and his only way out is to contain the demon.
The only problem….he doesn’t know how.
Jump into the Sylvan saga for an epic adventure you will remember.
