The followup to 2005's eye-popping Sin City is neither the dazzler I hoped for nor the disaster I feared. But "meh" is hardly the reaction you expect from a movie in which Eva Green and Jessica Alba shake their ta-tas and Mickey Rourke and Josh Brolin ...

B.L. Pontius Pens Fictional Tale in Lost Era of Mystery and Magic


Muskegon, Mich. (PRWEB) August 12, 2014

It was believed they were forged in a time before the world began, a lost era of mystery and magic, an ancient age when godly forces ruled. Two swords and a crown of unbelievable constructive and destructive power were produced. Legend has it that these two swords and a crown as well as those who hold them will both fight a war, one to enslave while the other for freedom.

CHOU, a fictional tale of epic proportions written by author B.L. Pontius is about a land that has succumbed to evil and a chosen one who was selected by God to free this world of evil. It tells the story of a great war for freedom and of survival with only one who will stand out to lead. Two ancient weapons of mass destruction met for the first time. The first is the blue-black sword Blood Destiny, a hellish red-gold hilted weapon of great and ever-powerful evil. The second is the golden sword, the Spirit of Light, a weapon of brilliant luminescence, of great good, mercy and kindness but, of all things, justice. The crown is called, The Diadem of Righteousness or Glory, a crown from God himself.

A golden breastplate, leggings, and shield accompanied the Spirit of Light and its crown all believed to be the armour of God. All of these items are for the Chosen One. He is a person of justice, of purity, of heart, and of mercy. Anyone could wear the armour, but only the Chosen One could wear the crown, for anyone else to wear it meant instant death. On the other hand, Blood Destiny is for anyone who it wanted to control, to dominate. With each person it came in contact with, it drew the life force slowly from them and uses it to strengthen itself, becoming a most powerful blade in the future world of Earth. The Great God saw the power too strong for mortal man, hiding them away, but not for long.

Providing a magnificent backdrop of ancient China, CHOU takes readers on a monumental journey where the forces of good and evil collide in a world marked by cruelty, slavery, death, and annihilation for the birth of a world empire forgotten in time. A brilliantly written literary masterpiece, this entertaining read will make readers ask for more.

About the Author

B.L. Pontius has always had a definitive love for ancient time periods. He has written many short stories of long ago, some became prize winners in high school. He has a long history of love for Asian women and thinks they are very mysterious as well as loving and loyal. Pontius did not had the greatest childhood in the world. He was left alone much of the time and that is how he developed his love for the long ago. He loves movies of ancient times. A few of his favorites are Ben Hur, The Ten Commandments, and the Passion of the Christ. He has not always been a man of deep Christian beliefs. When he was young, Pontius had many minor scrapes with others. But everything changed when he was 13 years old, that was when he came to Christ and it has forever changed him.
