A blurb about Genesis

 
The true test of Man, is to see if he can stand naked before himself without blinking.
The same trial of existence for a God, however, even one created, is if when he blinks, will he change or the world...

Publisher Blurb:
Genesis: Book One of The Kingdom Come Series, is an ambitious (at times made me crazy) speculative fiction story in the epic tradition of Dune, The Dark Tower and A Song of Ice and Fire. Blending various gritty elements of Steam/Dieselpunk and the brutality of sword-wielding Dark Fantasy into something all its own, this stand alone manuscript's cross-over appeal ranges from the Newbie, to the mature, Science Fiction and Fantasy book lover. And once caught in its exciting pages, you'll quickly learn what really separates Man from that which is truly Evolved.

Back Blurb:
After a year of laborious solitude and a conflict brought to the doorstep of his father's house, Jak, a Southlander of meek circumstance, will come to accept the future isn't set. Through abilities unnerving to any Areht, against enemies rising in every corner of the planet, he’ll be forced to resolve his destiny as one of five that can change the world. Such selfless transcendence isn’t easy, nor simply the heroic result of dark revelations shielded from him since childhood now exposed; rather, it's because of what’s undeniable, even to him. Like all great forces collected at the tip of the spear, the truth of his purpose and the price of his existence has a cost and there's no getting around paying it.

Overall Blurb:
Jak Hartlen, 19, the son of William and Mary, will face many thresholds of flesh and mind on his road to reaping The Whirl Wind; seeds of grief and guilt only now coming to fruition.
If only they’d know what they were doing... 
The Gan and their Areht who shape the world behind the scenes will hate him, because he's a threat they're not sure can be chained.  
The Pillars and their faithful who spread the world's leading religion will fear him, because his existence, once known, will challenge Ages of dogma and accepted history.
The Crimson King and its servants who seek to return to power, destroying all that remains of The White, will hunt him, because even in death, they're not sure he'll ever bow to The Dark.
                                                          —They All Should—
For as One of Five with the power to shake the world, they will hollow his heart and mind through countless sacrifice and vengeful selfishness.
