Greetings! I would like to introduce MEKONNEN: The Warrior of Light, part 1, the first in the MEKONNEN EPIC (R)  series of upcoming novels, comic books, and short videos.

The story is about a young warrior name Mekonnen from a flourishing empire in the Horn of Africa on a dangerous quest to find the parts o the Armor of God including the Sword of Light. He must learn how to release the power of the Sword and form alliances with various tribes in the region to stop the creatures from the Armies of Darkness from destroying their kingdoms. 

Also, check out the jigsaw puzzles featuring artwork and characters from the illustrated novel, and be on the lookout for new comic books and art/coffee table book soon. 

The Story

As the Armies of Light clash with the Mysteries of Darkness, the Kingdoms of Earth are caught in the midst and the fate of all creation hangs in the balance. Mekonnen, a young warrior from the great Kingdom of Aksum in the 6th century A.D., becomes caught in the midst of this ancient conflict between good and evil. His life is changed forever when his kingdom is attacked by malevolent agents of Darkness called Dark Qataliyan, lead by a powerful sorcerer they call Lord Silver Gauntlet, who performs black magic to release these savage creatures and to resurrect Waynaba, the Serpent-king who terrorized the kingdom about 1500 years earlier. Accompanied by an eccentric holy man, Abba Shiloh the Bahetawi, they form uneasy alliances with people of various languages and tribes.
