Legend of Eloh
(Will provide soon- use fake text for now)
The Legend of Eloh is a High, Epic Fantasy Saga spanning a massive planetary realm with elements of apocalyptic fiction, told in the volumes of the three tomes (books) and a feature film trilogy as well. It is a story of supernatural forces, mystery, magic, war and legend with mythological beings, prophetic promises and powerful forces of darkness and light, all in a grave struggle of mortal and immortal consequence. Because of a friend’s obsession with an old man’s tale of a legend, Ross finds himself caught up in an epic struggle. Lost near the summit of a mountain during a terrible, blinding storm, he fights to find his way down. But getting down becomes the least of his troubles. Alone and on the verge of dying, Ross falls into a pit that leads into the supernatural realm of Shuk. On the mountain, he was a foreigner in a foreign land, now he is a foreigner in a foreign mythical world where he encounters immortal beings of celestial and diabolical origins. Determined to find his way back, he is forced to rely on a strange and eclectic company of immortals. It is not long before Ross discovers that his fated arrival has set into motion legendary events requiring him to reclaim an ancient artifact called the Kleid o'Miht. Unless it is found and given to Eloh, the imminent destruction of an entire race, his race, is certain. But his presence and his purpose have not gone unnoticed by the dark powers ruling over the realm and will not go unhindered. In order to circumvent the fulfillment of the legend and the return of Eloh, the evil rulers of Shuk will do all that is possible to seek and destroy the foreigner.
People who like high epic fantasies with a love story, immortal beings, and epic battles of good and evil.
Book cover type
Book Cover #1 Direction: YOUR CHOICE! You design whatever your creative mind imagines using the synopsis description, the symbol of Eloh (attached) the 6 characters (attached) that are significant people/creatures in the story. However, a few of the main characters we have not provided an illustration. So, if you go this creative direction by using the characters in the book, you have the 6-character illustrations we provided. But you might want to use one or more of the other main characters we did not provide illustrations that are humans. They are normal looking human characters, such as Ross, the lead character of the book. He is 31 years old, handsome, and rugged, a mountain climbing outdoors type of guy. Eve his fiancé is a very beautiful women, 27 years old and adventurous. Eloh (God) an immortal, appears as an older man who is a master gardener with a very kind face. If you choose to use any of these 3 main characters you can use stock photos. I do think showing Ross in this book cover style might be good or showing both Ross and Eve together for the romance element might be smart to attract the romance readers. Then having the other creatures to show this book is from another realm, not of this world. Book Cover #2 Direction: The author created a simple book cover design for your reference.(attached) Using this ONLY as a reference do something that includes a few of these relevant images to the story; A very tall mountain range, the legend of Eloh symbol, three (3) planets/worlds, the eye of a beautiful girl. All these images are very significant to the story. We would like you to design a cover using elements like these as well. I have attached the three planet image if you want to use but feel free to use what you want. Also attached is the symbol for Eloh.
