RAGING SEA

by Ronald Rucker

Book Image Not Available
Overview
This story is a haunting look into the Dark Age plight of a band of Berserkers, surviving in the harsh environment of the North Atlantic. Living a traditionally nomadic and predatory lifestyle, they sailed in the grasp of that active and mystifying sea. Depicting the image of true evil, the villainous Felix obtained possession of a magical gemstone, taken promptly from the body of his ruling father. Once affixed as an eye to a sacrificial idol, it contained the collective energy of a multitude of souls and used its power to assemble a massive and formidable army, planning to utilize it in his conquest of the continent. The idols matching eye was subsequently ordained as an instrument, to be used in obstructing the exploits of Felix and his ravage of civilization. Acquired by an unsuspected rival, their quests embarked them upon a fantastic journey, inevitably finding romance, vengeance and resulting in the ultimate contest between Heaven and Hell.

About the author
Ronald Rucker was born in 1963 and while restless to escape the confines of life in the center of the North American continent, joined the US Navy. With desire for adventure beginning at a young age, spent the better part of 5 years in service traveling the world's waterways. Having a devout interest in nautical folklore, along with speculating on how world travelers of the past made their way, always presented an element of intrigue. During extended times offshore spent in cohort with seagoing types, provided abundant opportunity to hear and compare sea stories, along with reading many works of fiction and non. Intertwining thoughts of apparent events long ago with fantasy, enticed the urge to contrive how those of this region may have lived, explored, worshiped and been influenced.
