about the book
Kara Drake lives the life of a simple bartender, working in in a dangerous bar in Mexico.
When she is approached by a mysterious figure who offers her an even more mysterious ring, her life changes forever. Before the stranger is murdered by assassins who pursue him, he delivers one message—the ring belonged to her father.
A father she did not know.
Now the target of assassins herself, she follows a trail that will lead her to the last place her father was seen: a mysterious island in the Indian Ocean. The island is home to all manner of strange creatures.
It is also home to a mysterious society of warriors—warriors who are being slowly corrupted by a dark and powerful cult leader—the Underlord. The cult leader hopes to wage war on humanity in the name of his dark gods.
Born in 1972, I was inspired by my father, himself an exceptional charcoal pencil artist, to pursue a career in the creative industry. Constantly encouraged to “do what you love,” there was never a question as to what he wanted to be. Then, in 1977, something happened that cemented my desire to be creative; a little film by a young upstart named George Lucas was unleashed on the world. Star Wars fueled my imagination and I made it my business to find out who all those creative people were that brought that film to life.
