Immerse yourself in an evening of enchantment at Bards Alley on Tuesday, April 9th, at 6:30 PM, as we celebrate the much-anticipated book launch of Vienna's own Max Moyer. The spotlight will shine on Moyer's debut novel, "Zodak," the inaugural installment of the captivating epic fantasy series, "Tempest Rising." Join the discussion with Max and the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club leader, Brent, as they delve into the intricacies of this spellbinding tale. "Zodak" unfolds in the village of Laan, where the resilient orphan, Zodak, grapples with a life of misery orchestrated by his spiteful relatives. Amidst his bleak existence, a water sprite arrives, revealing a destiny and an epic journey that beckons him. The narrative takes an unexpected turn when Zodak's uncle, Ardon, entrusts him with a mysterious medallion, leading him to flee into an expansive, uncharted world. As Zodak seeks answers about his past and the significance of the medallion, he finds himself drawn to the splendid city of Uth Becca. Along his journey, he stumbles upon a clandestine order, a corrupt Magistrate, and a sinister plot threatening the very fabric of humanity. A dark force awakens, and with hordes on the march, the world hungers for a hero. In this enthralling saga, can an outcast like Zodak rise to the challenge? Fans of Brandon Sanderson, Martha Wells, and George R. R. Martin are in for a treat as Max Moyer takes us on a mesmerizing adventure through a world teeming with goblins, krikkis, and dwarves, blending elements of magic and mystery to create a tale that will leave readers eagerly anticipating the next chapter of "Tempest Rising." Don't miss the chance to have your copy of "Zodak" signed by the author himself after the discussion.
