An action-filled epic of idealism and devotion, "Wistrix Donn" weaves philosophy, mythology, and mystery into a world of medieval fantasy.

War consumes the lands of the east as rulers strive for power. Blood betrays blood. In the epicenter of the turmoil, a tower of amethyst appears—the Wistrix Donn. The emergence of the Wistrix Donn brings a whirlwind of paranormal activity, first wondrous, then terrible. The presence of these threats forces the return of the outcast Noetic and his estranged lover Ontic. Long ago, they received the blessing and the burden of the Mystery and the Miracle.

Now, in the absence of their murdered god, Ontic and Noetic face cunning enemies of flesh-and-blood, as well as issues of faith, truth, and duty. They must come to terms with what is expected of them, as well as their feelings for each other. Heartbreaking choices lie ahead as armies threaten chaos, friends fall away, and the unthinkable emerges to challenge the divinely appointed pair.

About the Author:

Long-time lover of mythology and fantasy fiction, Peter DeVries writes daily and teaches English courses for high school and college students. He received his BA from Sterling College and his MA from Fort Hays State University. He resides in the Midwest and is currently at work on a fantasy novel with the working title "Blood of Gods".

When asked about his motivation to write, DeVries smiled and quoted the words C. S. Lewis once spoke to J. R. R. Tolkien: "Tollers, there is too little of what we really like in stories. I am afraid we shall have to try and write some ourselves." 

Review:

"Wistrix" combines the power of fantasy with eternally human struggles. DeVries' lyrical writing proves he is an author worth watching. -- Nancy Mehl, The Wichita Eagle, January 16, 2005

This is an excellent journeyman fantasy... -- Bob Spear, Heartland Reviews, December 2004
