Alan Kistler Endorses The Holder’s Dominion

Alan Kistler started reading comics as a young child and immediately began his passion for how they influence pop culture, and affect the trends in society and politics. Now as an entertainment journalist, host, and a historian on comic books, Kistler has invented new ways to bring us closer to the subjects we love. For example, his column Agents of S.T.Y.L.E., discuss the evolution and history of superhero fashion and design. He’s also the host of the popular podcast Crazy Sexy Geeks where episodes feature discussions on the latest entertainment news.

Joining iconic industry veterans like Christie GoldenDr. Richard Bartle, and Micky Neilson, Alan Kistler endorses what many sources are calling a “breakthrough novel.” Publishers Weekly praised The Holder’s Dominion revering its “new adult” classification. How exciting to present Alan Kistler’s review for the new gamer fiction, The Holder’s Dominion:

“An imaginative outing. Davis gives a post-modern take on a classic fantasy journey as a young woman steps away from a broken family and faces a larger world.”

—Alan Kistler, author and host of Crazy Sexy Geeks Podcast

About The Holder’s Dominion:

The Holders Dominion_Book Cover_ImageAfter her father’s death on a mountain rescue mission, Kaylie Ames watched her family shatter. She fled Tacoma for college in faraway Austin, figuring that even the worst campus drama would be a relief. But when her old friend Elliott turns up on his knees in the grocery store aisle, raving about something called a morphis, Kaylie feels compelled to enter Elliott’s unfamiliar world.

Guided by Elliott and his friends, Kaylie signs on to the massively popular online game Edannair. There she discovers a world of beautiful vistas and magical creatures, where people from all over the globe step into the roles of warriors on fantastical quests. But a real-world evil threatens the players: the mysterious Holder, leader of the elite team known as Sarkmarr, is coercing his followers into traumatic offline dares known as “morphis assignments.” To save her friends, Kaylie must infiltrate Sarkmarr and survive the Holder’s tests. 

Will she find the courage there to hold her real-world family together?
