Bid the Gods Arise author Robert Mullin sent me a manuscript of his novel “Bid the Gods Arise” a while back, and I read it and provided the following blurb:
Bid the Gods Arise possesses the music of epic and the color of myth. It’s a big story, spanning planets, but with a specific human heart. Once read, it lingers in the mind like a dream.
It’s not uncommon for me to receive manuscripts from people who’d like me to read and comment on them. It’s very rare that I can say much good. “Bid the Gods Arise” is an exception. A genuinely original work, it combines fantasy with interstellar travel far more successfully than you imagine it could.
The story involves two young men, Aric and Maurin, who are kidnapped from their home planet by interstellar slave merchants. Separated and sent to very different fates, they meet again at last and join with a company of others on a quest which involves both Aric’s true destiny and his greatest temptation.
This is a really good book, a Christian fantasy novel with no preaching. I recommend it.
