Infernal: The Chronicles of Stratus, Book One

We rated this book:


Stratus awakes in a strange land unable to remember who – or what – he is. All he knows is that his name is Stratus and that he possesses great strength and the power of sorcery. As he travels through the war-torn lands of Krandin, Stratus stands out. He does not look or behave like the others, but his differences help guide him on a journey of self-discovery and vengeance. Along the way, Stratus makes a few friends and many enemies as he battles forces of dark magic and his inner demon.

Mark De Jager leads the reader through an action-packed saga full of twists and turns. De Jager’s Stratus is a dark and deeply disturbed protagonist. Infernal is full of action, drama, and dark humor. Stratus, as his name suggests, is a character of many layers. He is clever and witty as well as naïve about his new surroundings. He will do anything to help a friend and stop at nothing to take down his enemies – if only he can tell them apart. Every brush with danger reveals more of his past while also unveiling more of his powers.

Like many fantasy novels, De Jager takes his character on an action-packed odyssey featuring many battles and much bloodshed. If you are a fan of other troubled heroes such as Sandman Slim or Harry Dresden, then you will appreciate the way Stratus moves through the world relying on his fists and an occasional fire ball while barely able to contain the beast within.
