Press Release: Praised For It’s Originality
Praised For Its Originality, This Action-Packed Saga Has A 3D Comic App With Music By Celldweller
Denver, CO – The Bane of Yoto, by Joshua Viola, is a trans-media experience that offers many ways to explore its rich storyline. From paperback or eBook to a free 3D interactive comic mobile app, this attention-grabbing novel was recently released by independent record label and music publisher FiXT – and promises to transport readers to a sinister world of cosmic drama and action they will never forget!
Formerly a professor of Game Art and Design, and now Art Director for Leviathan Games, Viola’s astounding vision is unmistakable in this perfect blend of science fiction and fantasy that comes together in a breakneck paced, action-packed plot where creatively original characters battle for their very existence in a brutal world.
Drawing rave reviews for its originality and vision, The Bane of Yoto has won awards from both the 2012 New York Book Festival and the 2012 Hollywood Book Festival, and is the first installment in a trilogy of science-fantasy novels by Joshua Viola.
…Some say the Arbitrators existed long before the world was born. Others believe their dark powers spun the fabric of time itself. They are mystery. But this is truth. After ages of formless existence, the Arbitrators craved physicality once more and in their search for a worthy body to inhabit, they destroyed Ajyin – home to the gentle, blue-fleshed Numah and the combative, carapaced Olokun. But not all was lost. General Vega and his vile warriors enslaved the remaining Numah and they relocated to Ajyin’s thriving moon, Neos.
Under the general’s imperious rule, the Numah toiled to extract minerals for a defensive barrier called the Aegis Shield that the general vowed would protect Neos from the Arbitrators’ return. But the Arbitrators’ hunger sparked a great fire – a blaze of revenge and revolution that soon found its home in the heart of a weak and cowardly Numah named Yoto, transforming him from a meek member of an enslaved society into a beast fit for the gods. Will he use his new-found power to free his people – or annihilate them? Once again, the Arbitrators’ dark presence haunts the world of Numah and Olokun.
Always looking to break new ground, FiXT (owned by cyber-rocker Klayton of Celldweller), recently entered the book publishing business with The Bane of Yoto. Staying with the book’s theme, Viola has merchandise available ranging from PlayStation 3 Dynamic Themes, Sculptures and T-shirts, to posters and more, that are available through FiXT.
