Reminiscent of human sagas such as The Alchemist and the Life of Pi, AKIN unapologetically delves deeper into the human condition, masterfully weaving the triumph of the human spirit against its darkest shadows.
“The book is written in such a way as to provoke pathos and curiosity.” – Charles Franklin, Midwest Book Review
Aydan awakens to voices he does not recognize – fearing the worst, he prays, hoping they will leave him. But it’s too late. Other villagers witness his waking nightmare, and he is quickly imprisoned, set to await vile rituals meant to rid him of demons. But the fear that has followed him all his life is soon replaced with anger, as betrayal and a new friendship urge him passionately towards freedom. He soon finds himself on a unknown path, flung into the mystical, grand desert that surrounds him.
Robin Murarka’s AKIN explores philosophy, existentialism, and the human condition within a unique, immersive setting. It escapes the confines of modern taboos to present an ancient, archaic world whose brutality and humanity is true to form. If you enjoy epic narratives that skillfully juxtapose internal struggles against the backdrop of huge, worldly events, you will find yourself lost within the pages of AKIN, clamoring for more long after the story is over.
