The discovery of a false prophecy chronicled at the beginning of time unleashes a threat to mankind in the epic fantasy novel, The Final Choosing by T.L. Howard. Mirah, goddess Deceris's Chosen One, is on another quest to save the world from annihilation. When a Scholar in the first millennium discovered a fallacious prophecy, his fanatical attempts to fulfill it nearly brought about the extinction of the world. He was imprisoned and the prophecy hidden away. Now, many centuries later, another Scholar and follower of the god Belamon uncovers the heretical record. He is convinced it is ordained by the fates to declare Belamon the one and only god. Meanwhile, the goddess Deceris visits Mirah, and warns her of a dire threat to humanity and the world, and cryptically counsels her to find a book. Following Deceris's enigmatic warning, Mirah, with her husband Roenin, the Commander of the Knights of Deceris, and Samone, her Knight Practitioner, embark on an expedition in search of the obscure, ancient tome. Danger stalks Mirah and her entourage as they hasten to prevent the cessation of time. Can they succeed before it is too late?
The threat of impending universal doom is vibrantly portrayed in the exciting epic fantasy novel, The Final Choosing by T.L. Howard. It is a captivating saga with engaging characters set in a rustic and idyllic world, where elements of magic are deftly assimilated, giving it a natural place among the knights, lords, ladies, and prelates. The book has a fascinating concept regarding the two religions practiced by those in the story world, and the trinity-like idea is perceptive and thought-provoking. Light versus dark is prevalent in most epic fantasies, and this one is no different; except the evil didn't stem from a deity, but from man himself, which is refreshingly original. This is the third novel in a breathtaking saga series that will hopefully be followed by more. This riveting tale is in the same class as David Eddings' The Belgariad and fans of his series, along with those who enjoy thrilling epic fantasies, will not be able to resist this spellbinding story.
