M. David Loyal to Present Novel at 2013 New York Annual Library Conference
The 2007 fantasy novel "Zierath: Lord of the Alliance" (published by iUniverse) from author M. David Loyal, will be featured this year at the 2013 New York Library Annual Conference and Trade Show: Libraries Spark Imagination, held Sept. 25-28 in Niagara Falls, N.Y.
Zierath is an Imrhys, a race of immortal humans who live on the Achar. The Achar is a magical world with hundreds of sentient races. It is a huge rotating helix ring twisting around a sun. On this narrow ring, there are many oceans and continents. On the section of the Achar where the stories take place, the Known Ring, the Imrhys - led by Zierath - use their immense power to protect the Achar and its inhabitants from the nihilistic monsters of the Gnarrhys.
Loyal hopes his readers will find useful ideas in his book. "As our world turns darker, it is always important to remember the basic truth that people do what they believe is best," he says. "No one is evil on purpose. They may be misguided in what may be 'best,' but only psychopaths do evil for evil's sake."
