This is Patrick G. Laplante, an ex-engineer turned writer. It’s my honor and pleasure to be writing in a budding new genre: Cultivation Fantasy.As an avid reader, it’s nice to finally put my spin on tales filled with martial arts, Daoist magics, and a cultivator’s journey to achieve mortality.

Cultivation fantasy is traditionally an Asian genre, so my writing is rich with Asian cultural elements and mythology.Though I come from a technical background, I like to emphasize emotions and personal development. Life is a journey, and by reading, we get to walk much farther than we otherwise could. I hope you feel the same way.

Asher is tasked with battling demons until the day he dies...

To help his allies, he'll make the world his enemy.
