This week for Serial Saturday I’m back with the second set of chapters in Anton’s exploration of a new world. It’s Atros Imperium Chapters 9-16 by Terry!
Plot Synopsis: Anton Thorn died in an incident of his own creation, his body torn and shredded to pieces. Yet death and eternal rest did not await him. Gods, from another world, took his soul along many others to their world to fight an overwhelming and impossible foe. By chance and oversight his soul was missed by the gods, his soul destined to remain in limbo and torment for all eterinity. A few weak and desperate gods took a chance with him and brought him through to their world. Now sent far away from the battle, in his original body, to a small village in the husk of a dead kingdom. It is now up to him to restore the Kingdom and fight off anything that would threaten him or those he loves; be they human, beast, monster or hero.
Plot: This is a rather important set of chapters as it really sets up the rest of the series, and shows us how dark the world Anton has found himself in. I won’t say much more, but this set of chapters is not for the faint of heart.
Characters: We get to meet a couple new faces, but for the most part this entire set of chapters is based on exploring the already met cast. Anton is still very much the protagonist though.
Overall: A solid, if somewhat dark, set of chapters in a series that is pretty awesome.
