Burwell author weaves gripping action, interspecies wars in absorbing new book
BURWELL, Neb. — Author Noah Dexter announces the nationwide release of his new fantasy novel, “Venom.”
In “Venom,” for years, humans and elven slavers have invaded the Savanna of Abarace, raiding a race of lizardfolk, the Talents, who must flee before their overwhelming might. With their villages burned, their hunting grounds overrun and their lives shattered, the young race of lizardfolk retreat across the Savanna.
The slavers’ fires rage uncontained. They bring a towering tsunami of flames they call the Firestorm. Slavers surround it and capture any who tried to flee — until Kito Firesoul, a young Talent who is a born hunter, parts the flames and marches out of hell and into legend. The scars he leaves on the slavers are never forgotten. The hope he gives to his lost and forsaken race is scattered throughout the world, yet the memories he now carries are too much for him to bear. He hides his true power from his tribe and he neglects to hold back the tide of slavers. And slavers invade. The humans return. And they remember Kito.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Dexter is an 18-year-old author living in the small town of Burwell, Nebraska. Driven to add a whole new genre to fiction writing, he can often be found scribbling away on a notepad in the wee hours of the morning or pounding away on a keyboard, recording the biography of every character he creates. He spends a lot of time imagining and inhabiting fictional worlds — probably too much time.
