King Blog Tour Guest Post: "Beginnings"


On Tour with Prism Book Tours...

King
King (Books of the Infinite, # 3)by RJ Larson
Paperback, 352 pages
Published July 1, 2013 by Bethany House

Akabe of Siphra is certain his people are insane. 

Why have they made him a king? 
What, in the name of peacetime boredom do kings do?

Frustrated by a lengthy silence from his Creator, the Infinite, Akabe decides to prove himself as king by undertaking a monumental task, his own lifelong dream: Rebuild the Infinite’s temple in Siphra. 

But Akabe’s impulsive decision sweeps him into a storm of controversy. The Infinite’s enemies join forces in Siphra, and beyond, conspiring to destroy the emerging temple—and to kill their king and his mysterious new queen.

Beginnings

Readers who have picked up King for the first time often ask, “Where did you get the idea for King?” 

King’s main character, Akabe of Siphra, first appeared in book one, Prophet, as an honorable rebel-hunter roaming wild in the mountains east of Parne. 

Book one opens in Parne and presents a new beginning in this distant realm. Parne is the city-state where the Creator, the Infinite, has ended a Divine silence that spanned more than a generation. 

Each of the main characters from the Books of the Infinite series, Ela, Kien, Akabe, and (some might add) a certain monster-warhorse named “Pet”, face times of testing in Parne.

For their sakes and His, the Infinite is determined to reach all mortals, whom He loves.
