Son of Cain
Book Description: A fist in God’s face tests God’s grace. Son of Cain mingles light fantasy and the pre-deluge biblical history of the Noachian world in a powerful story that explores man’s brokenness and the scope of God’s grace.
Dar’ock, a descendent of Cain, believes that the curse placed on his forbearer and his forbearer’s progeny is unfair, and yet he struggles with his own fallen condition. Ignoring the evil of his ways, he resents the fact that he should suffer the “curse of Cain,” and determines to search for the god that cursed his lineage. He would “have words” with him.
In the midst of his quest, Dar’ock is ambushed by a troglodyte whom he bests and makes his slave. The troglodyte, Garfe, proves to be a constant challenge, for he secretly serves an enchantress with supernatural powers. Garfe lures Dar’ock into the tangles of her evil web. Once within the walls of the enchantress’ lair, Yennea, a young slave-girl, becomes his conscience and confronts him with kindness he does not comprehend. However, in his self-serving arrogance he remains determined to confront God with injustice, which leads him to seek the Hidden City and a crazy man who is building a huge boat in a waterless land. Choices he makes have a price and lead to a powerful conclusion to his quest.
