Sumiko Saulson’s Dark Fantasy Series, ‘The Metamorphoses of Flynn Keahi, Somnalia’

From the publisher of fantastic and diverse horror stories comes the second installment in Bram Stoker(r) finalist, Sumiko Saulson’s dark fantasy series, The Metamorphoses of Flynn Keahi, Somnalia.

Turmoil consumes the Underworld when the death of a god leaves a power vacuum. Phobetor, the stern and ambitious god of Nightmares seeks to fill the gap at any cost. Murderous nightmare daemons escape to the mortal realm, placing all of mankind in peril. In the midst of the unrest, star-crossed lovers yearn for one another across the void, one disempowered and bound to the Earth, the other trapped in the land of dreams by a grave sacrifice. Will love conquer all, or is the world’s only salvation a god with an iron fist?

“Sumiko is a writer that puts heart and mind and music into their work and takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of edgy fantasy. You will not be able to predict the twists and turns as this story unfolds. In the end you’ll be fulfilled and ready for more to come in the next book.” – Linda D. Addison, first African-American recipient of the HWA Bram Stoker Award
