Synopsis: “EMPIRE OF ONE” by Thaine Chase is the first book in an epic adventure that evokes an ancient time of folklore and mysticism just out of reach of the naked eye.
Chase’s lyrical prose and fluid first-person narrative provide a deeply sensory experience, full of intense battle sequences and breathless chases through a well-crafted, and intricate backdrop of layered arcana.
The wandering invader has gone by the name Fintan, Sreng, and over 200 other identities in his life as he’s traveled through our history — always making sure his true name never be revealed. He’s survived The Great Flood, The Plague, The Inquisition, and every major war ever fought in the past 5,000 years.
He’s been a king, a slave, and every class status between the two. He knows how to win, lose, and draw — how to walk with guilt, fear, love, hate, and the burning hunger to feel the sweet release of death.
He is and has been many things — but if you ask him, who or what he is… he would answer proudly to the title; ‘FirBolg’, the very specific honorific a present day invading alien race will violently come to know and fear.
Dreamlike and surreal, EMPIRE OF ONE is a truly engaging tale, and is the launching pad for author Thaine Chase’s WANDERING INVADER SERIES.
Author Bio: Born in Atlantic, Canada — Thaine Chase’s love for word-craft began early in his childhood years, manifesting in the form of short stories.
Even though he was repeatedly encouraged by both his teachers and parents alike, Thaine resisted the temptation to walk the road of the ‘writer’, fearful an artistic life was too much of a risk in a world driven by job security and financial status, so instead, like others in his family, he chose a blue-collar career and the guaranteed paycheque.
Now, more than five decades later, Thaine has finally surrendered to his fondness for storytelling, and has decided to take a serious stab at fictional writing.
