PASADENA, Calif., Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "Candidate" Donald Trump is the latest real-life figure portrayed in Joel Eisenberg and Steve Hillard's acclaimed alt-fantasy series, The Chronicles of Ara. Trump's arc begins with volume three in the series, subtitled Inferno.
The books follow the journey of Ara, a corrupted muse who has infected man's artistry to influence the biblical end of days. Trump will be introduced in Inferno as the GOP candidate to whom the country will turn following a catastrophic domestic event.
"The Chronicles of Ara is an eight-part series that strives for relevancy," says Eisenberg. "Trump as a candidate had made his fair share of promises. But campaign promises and reality are two different things, and in the books both prove equally dangerous."
In the novels, Ara is corrupted following a tragic loss. Using parallel storylines, the characters include some of history's more renowned "dark authors" - J.R.R. Tolkien, Mary Shelley, Lewis Carroll, H.G. Wells, Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft - as they are inspired to pen their greatest works. In modern day, within these authors' books are clues of an impending man-made apocalypse, as has been inspired by the power of their creations.
"Real-world commentary on Trump is not always kind," says Hillard. "As our future 'President Trump' claims that The Bible is his 'favorite book,' with this inspiration he assigns a propaganda minister of sorts to disseminate prophetic words and images that will lead to his favor with evangelicals, while framing himself as the only possible savior of the masses. But behind this prophet is a puppet-master, an immortal, with a larger agenda. What then?"
Inferno, featuring Trump's first appearance in the series, will be released on December 15th, 2016.
The Chronicles of Ara, is published under the Topos Books imprint of Incorgnito Publishing Press. Incorgnito was formed in January 2015 by President/Publisher Michael Conant, and is based out of Pasadena, California.
