"Ms. Uhl's excellent book will not be put down until the last page is Devoured!"
A young warrior-priest undertakes a perilous journey
an unknown land, and for his trouble is beaten and
imprisoned. He is found and nursed back to health
by a young girl, with the help of an embittered prison
guard. Meanwhile, a ruler who harbors hatred in his heart
sets an unimaginable betrayal in motion. The ruler's
hatred has so destroyed his life that he is willing to
sacrifice his own son to see himself avenged.
Cyran's ruler sets his plan in motion. The young
hostage, Dru, has no memory of why he is where he is, but
he is compelled nonetheless to complete the task he
has been sent to accomplish. Unaware of his importance in
the scheme of things, Dru is befriended by the very people
he was sent to destroy. If he succeeds, an entire world
people will be destroyed.
Xina Marie Uhl calls upon her extensive knowledge of
ancient history to create the places and people who make
her fantasy adventure Necropolis. With enough characters
for a DeMille epic, Necropolis distinguishes itself and its
author, by managing to focus enough on the main
characters to allow the reader to get completely caught up
in their lives. What at first blush seems to be the
turns out to be instead a brilliant double back flip which
wrenches the hearts and challenges the minds of the
readers, ensuring that Ms. Uhl's excellent book will not
put down until the last page is devoured.
