Task Force: Gaea

When Zeus fails to ask the ancient goddess Nyx for guidance in establishing Mount Olympos, she destroys the Sacred Scales, unhinging the cosmic balance. A victim of this chaos, Apollo falls prey to Zeus’ wrath, sentenced to a life of mortality. His new journey makes him question his godhood in existential ways as well as his views on humanity. Prophecy and the Fates direct his course, and he must make difficult, yet vital, choices. Thousands of years later, prophecy demands that four mortals restore the Order, even if it means they might never have existed. Can mortals succeed where gods dare not go?



Excerpt

"Arkadeia’s beleaguering winters, with ice storms and blizzards to blanket the region until Persephone surfaced from her Hadean sovereignty, were temperate compared to the bitterness carried through the obscurity through which I traveled. My faith in both the Earth Mother and her sister kept me from faltering, keeping me from succumbing to the rawness. From the heart of Tartaros, where I headed, blew this breath of anguish, this killer of hope. Panic grew from within my gut, spreading like a cancer, moving through my chest and arms as I neared this sepulchral place, this place I could never see but had to pass through with only my devotion to be my beacon. A few steps later, without Gaea or Olympeia telling me, I knew I was there, and the talons of terror snatched me, tearing apart my resolve, one piece at a time. I had arrived where none save Zeus himself had ever seen, and even the god of gods had felt the same emotions I felt; no one was immune from such soul-shredding agony.

Here was where Kronos was buried."



Professional Reviews

Intelligence found
I loved this book. It satisfied a craving for a more intelligently written story crossing the lines between the modern world and that of mythology. Not since high school has a book challenged my vocabulary. I can't wait to read more books penned by David Berger.

Amazing book!!
This book was simply amazing. The characters, the story, the pictures of the characters. I was hooked from page one.. So much so, that I read it twice! David Berger is a brilliant author! I can't wait to read his next installment of this captivating saga.. If you have not read it yet, don't question yourself.. Buy it.. You'll LOVE it!

Exellent Storytelling
I have always admired writing that takes well trodden themes and character archetypes and finds new ways to make them interesting. David Berger certainly achieves this in volume one of his series. My interest in Greek mythology has always been cursory at best. However, this story was so interesting that I found myself researching the mythology while I was reading the book. I was so invested in the world created by Berger that I just had to know more and see where he took his inspiration from.

I love good storytelling. The actual subject of a story is secondary in my opinion. How you tell your story and your passion for it are the most important aspects of writing to me. A fantastic story can be ruined if put in the wrong hands. While reading this wonderfully thought-out story and the detailed characters (My favorite being Brandon Jeffries A.K.A. ZODIAK.) that make up Task Force: Gaea the passion of the storyteller was more than evident.

I am eagerly anticipating volume two of this excellent series.
