Mike Duran’s sophomore novel, The Telling (Realms), brings together a scarred prophet who has abandoned his gift, the doppelganger whose murder he must solve, and a quest to close one of the nine gates of hell.
“It was really a fun, challenging story to unravel,” Mike shares. “The Telling is a story about people who, in the midst of horrific circumstances, are grappling with a larger purpose to their lives. What is destiny? Is it human or divine? Can darkness—inside or outside us—short-circuit our destiny? Or are some scars actually destined?”
