The Legend of the Avatars: The Created World by Tutmozis (Márk Jusztin) is an epic fantasy with hints of science fiction, a novel that transports readers into another world. The setting is in a world created by the God-endowed beings called the Avatars, bringing to life the Magi and the Demons, likened to the forces of good and evil. As the story begins, the reader is introduced to cities of the Magus Empire, Syrun and Azzriut. A powerful threat looms on the horizon and, through the magic sphere known as Atronorr, the Avatars watched events unfolding on Syrun. The rules have faded into obscurity and the inhabitants of Syrun had opened new paths, breaking through imaginary boundaries. But when the darkness threatens their lives, can they survive?
This fantasy tale beautifully and deftly explores the duality in nature and pits good against evil. The reader is plunged into a world of powerful forces. I enjoyed the way the imaginary setting is handled, with strong imagery that allows readers clear visuals of where the story takes place. For instance, the images of Azzriut are strong. Azzriut had once been a peaceful place with inhabitants living under well-established laws, one of the most important cities of the Magus Empire. But Dark Powers now loom over the city, threatening its peace. The people of Azzriut and Syrun have witnessed the spectacle of the vision in the sky. While they don’t understand what it really means, they marvel at the harmony of the colors in the sky. The dichotomy between what has been in the past and what is about to happen is clearly captured, and readers can sense danger where characters see a natural phenomenon.
This is a story of creation, filled with action and strong imagery. The characters are phenomenal, the conflict so strong that it represents the evil in this created world rising against the good. The Legend of the Avatars: The Created World is highly imaginative, a spellbinding novel filled with magic, demons, warriors, and powerful spells. There is a strange realism woven into the story.
