The Pillar of Dominance by Valya Boutenko
In a world where the planet’s dominant power can be determined by man once every thousand years, armies gather their forces to compete for the dominance. When the bravest prince of the Sapphire Kingdom, born and raised for this one essential mission, fearfully backs out of the quest, his inexperienced little brother Warren, secretly goes in his place.
On this epic journey, Warren travels to the Wanderers' Mountains across a land ruled by evil for one thousand years. In his search for the Pillar of Dominance, he makes many friends and enemies, including a clairvoyant girl from another time, and an ancient wizard with a mysterious curse. With the future resting solely in his young hands, will Warren be able to save his world?
Reviews for the The Pillar of Dominance
Awesome story! I can't wait for the next book in the series. September 10, 2013
High praise to the author. I really enjoyed reading The Pillar of Dominance. It felt like I was watching a movie through all of the great descriptions. The story is unique, and well developed. I fell in love with the characters quickly, and couldn't stop reading until the end. Throughout the story, I found myself asking questions and anticipating what might happen to the characters. All my questions were answered, and I was always happily surprised with the story that unfolded. I strongly recommend this book. It is an epic adventure.

An imaginative, moving and screenworthy adventure saga. This book is a deeply thought-provoking pageturner and leaves you wanting more. Luckily it's the first in a grand series! Fascinating characters tell a compelling story in a cinematic landscape. But Ms. Boutenko's successful transition to fantasy fiction is no surprise, as her creative intelligence has long been appreciated by raw food enthusiasts.
