Dear Chuck Sambuchino:
A disheartened immortal–each death returning him to the body of another–harbors no fear of dying except that the next will not be his last.
THE RETURNING, my 125,000 word fantasy novel, chronicles Gregarion’s desire to find final peace, and his growing love for a woman from a previous life who now regards him with distain.
Haunted by memories of solitary lives lacking purpose, cast into the body of Prince Syjer, he must unite the ten clans against a brother, likewise cursed, who absorbs the King and is determined to destroy him, a people, and an entire culture.
Aligned with the aloof all female clan, Syjer questions his destiny and the meaning of an obscure prophecy as he is forced to battle external clan strife, feuding philosophies and prejudices beneath the shroud of an upcoming civil war.
And there is a secret he guards even more unbelievable than his own random returning: a growing threat unaware to all but him rages to conquer not only Ananyll, but the entire world, and it grows ever stronger.
The one question he must answer: how do I kill one who does not die?
My short stories have appeared in Women’s World and various zines; non-fiction in Triathalon, City Escort, as well as newspaper articles, features and columns. Work experience encompasses ownership and management of several small companies, customer service and marketing, all of which comprised teaching, instruction, and speaking to large groups.
I am sending this query for the first book in a proposed trilogy because of your continued assistance helping writers improve their craft. The completed novel is available upon request.
Thank you for your consideration,
Rick C. Langford
