Marble, NC, May 19, 2015 -- Word Branch Publishing is pleased to announce the release of Jamal Cadoura’s first published novel: When Darkness Emerges.
“I am so impressed by this young man’s storytelling ability,” says Word Branch president, Catherine Rayburn-Trobaugh. “When Darkness Emerges has a captivating plot with vibrant characters who have depth and real reactions-there are no cardboard cutouts here. This is a novel not just for fantasy fans, but anyone who enjoys action and drama.”
The book begins with an ‘everyman’ that anyone can relate to. James Oak’s life is falling apart, but when he realizes it isn’t the world fighting him, but him fighting his own internal battle, he finally gives in to the inevitable failure.
But redemption comes in the form of an unlikely source. A coworker introduces him to a fantastical world where angels rule. But despite the unearthly beauty of the Oracai, it is contrasted with the darkness of Olethros and the terrifying demons that inhabit it. What ensues is a war that not only changes the dynamics of the worlds, but James himself.
Relying heavily on vivid description to build the world of Oracai, Cadoura’s writing draws the reader into the story with relentless battles and realistic dialog. “His strength is his ability to set a scene so rational that the reader immediately believes the fantastic,” says Rayburn-Trobaugh.
Cadoura lives in his native Michigan where he not only writes but runs his not-for-profit organization, Pens For Peace. He says that he, “writes not only because he has a burning passion for it,” but because he desires to change the world through his words.
