Phantasia (Book One: Into the Rain) REVIEWS
“Riyadad Ullah has set forth an excellent tale with Phantasia, a future fantasy epic. His writing is exemplary, his storytelling a well-honed craft, and it shows with this journey into the magical world that he found.
His book is a sprawling fantasy epic mixed with science fiction elements, and a fantastic cast of characters. It echoes shades of Dune and Lord of the Rings, but at the same time is its own story with a unique voice, setting, and plot. The author doesn’t try to hide his use of common tropes, and instead, puts a unique twist on each of them.” (THE TELLEST)
“An incredible feat of imagination, comparable to the best the genre has to offer. Phantasia is thought-provoking, dark, creative, and well-written.” (SB Science Fiction Forum)
After finding the body of a dragon in a metallic desert, Red finds out that he is the reincarnation of a messiah worshipped by an insectoid alien race bent on invading his star system. Swept into a dangerous adventure across glacial swamps, cloud cities, and dead stars — Red must evade his true purpose in the world, to summon a forsaken deity trapped in another realm.
Travel into a world unlike any other, a world teeming with creatures the size of planets, parasites that can lay waste to entire civilizations, and mysterious energy sources that can decay the lifeforce of stars. What starts as only a whisper in the darkness, grows into a tale of epic proportions.
Phantasia is a future fantasy epic that stands at 180,000 words.
