In a sleepy farming stead, a young man, Alant Cor, is found to be one of the few Humans who can manipulate the Essence. And, not simply manipulate it. Alant has more power over this magical force than any Human in known history. Does his younger brother, Arderi Cor, possess the same ability, or something more sinister?

Clytus Rillion, the commander of a mercenary troop, embarks on a quest to cure his dying son, Sindian. Though he doubts he will survive the journey, he will pay any price to save his son's life. The beast, known only as Klain, born a slave and now used to entertain the masses in a bloodthirsty sport known as the Games, finds out his true value to those who own him lies with his death. All are resigned to walk the paths fate has put them upon. Yet, is this of their own accord? Or, is an ancient and powerful race, the Elmorr'Antiens, manipulating the other inhabitants of Talic'Nauth?

Change is falling upon the Plane. Some Elmorr'Antiens are making preparations to weather the storms ahead - others intend to use the coming chaos to seize power over all the races.

Follow these seemingly unrelated lives as their paths are set on a course that none can hope to survive. Listeners to the Genesis of Oblivion saga will immerse themselves in the depth of a unique world culture, the grandeur of its civilizations, and the sheer awe of more than 96,000 years of history!

    " This is the first book the author has written. It's a pretty fun story that at times had me really interested that I couldn't put it down. My main complaint about the book is the names and names of places! They are such crazy names that I have a really hard time remembering what is what or even how to even pronounce it. One other thing that the book could do without was in about the fifth chapter a guy gets killed and it was a bit graphic. Get past that and it's not like that the rest of the book. The first book is pretty funny on how I really don't know what the goal of everyone's different story is. I am guessing they will all eventually come together, but I don't really know what it is they are doing. I guess the first book just sets it all up. Don't get me wrong, I've still really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one. "

    " First of all, I am very grateful to be one of the lucky ones to win a copy of this book in the giveaways. It felt like Christmas when I got my copy in the mail. The best part about it is how very good this book is. It's a wonderful, layered saga with different narratives weaved together in a way that makes it difficult to put down. Maxwell Alexander Drake has created a richly complex and dramatic world filled with unforgettable characters. I highly recommend it and can't wait for the next in the series to come out. "

    " Give these wonderful characters a few pages to grab you. By the end you won't be able to put it down. Different from many in the classical genre, F & M has plenty to offer any reader who loves a classic yarn of action and adventure. "

    " I admit, I'm planning on meeting Mr. Drake at a writers' conference soon, so I downloaded this book onto my Kindle. Within the FIRST CHAPTER it went from "have to" to "want to." The world is rich and full, the characters so real they could walk out of the pages...and the plot itself feels orchestrated by a master (so far ;)). Big thumbs up! "

    " A decent debut in the epic fantasy genre. Solid world building lays a good foundation for characters that vary a bit in their strength and place in the narrative. Klain, a leonine humanoid, was the standout character for me - I found the human protagonists much more formulaic and less interesting (not poor characters, simply less intriguing in motivation, backstory and narrative voice). Klain might just be the best of a few good reasons to follow this to book two. "

    " Well written. Not my kind of story. Would recommend for people who like fantasy such as Lord of the Rings, etc. "

    " Took a bit to get into (slow to start) and I nearly gave up on it, when it suddenly took off and I couldn't put it down! So glad I stuck with it and I'm eager for more! "
