“Beyond the Father” sets the scene for the 8-book Sci-Fi Epic “gods on Trial: The Series™,” delving into life’s determination to transcend all limitation. Set on the planet Xżyber, citizens of the Sub-Median Region, imperfectly reborn into metal, oppress those who are organic. Elsewhere, in the Central Kingdom, religion supports royalty’s brutal domination of the lowest class. War over scarce resources is coming, revolution within each region is brewing, and none know of the eccentric god who created them. This being watches, has fascinating conversations with his often-wiser companion, occasionally learns, and rarely intervenes. The many levels and threads of struggle distract nearly all from a far greater threat. Meanwhile, the young Prince Anglid’s vision quest into the unexplored Area X may ultimately change everything. However, just when you think you know the direction of the story, the author has yet another surprise.
“Opeshum has employed the switching point-of-view character chapter method, which has worked in The Expanse and Song of Ice and Fire. This method allows the reader to see different classes of characters and their relative experiences of the world, and it is quite effective in Beyond the Father.” - Jim Maher, Reedsy
“"I could feel the author's imagination at work. The transition from one episode to another was top level. This is a great movie in our hands.” -Omoruyi Uwuigiaren, Author/Book Blogger, Ruyi's World of Books & Stories
