Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Over the course of several generations, the once mighty empire known as the United Republics of The Red Star slaughtered millions of it's own people by the order of a single man. The man was their leader, Imbohl, a mighty sorcerer whose insanity turned his people's Utopian dreams into a nightmarish scheme driven by the desire to create his own immortality. Haunted by the ghosts of their nation's tragic past, the Heroes of the Red Star discover the true nature of their nation's struggle, abandon their duties as soldiers of the Red Fleet, and embark upon a quest to liberate their people from Imbohl's dark legacy. The Battle of Kar Dathra's Gate is a fictionalization of the 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. This unapologetic romantic saga utilizing the same 3-D modeling technology as today's best selling video games and animated features while heralding the dawn of a new era in visual storytelling.

That being said, this book does not promote Communism. It promotes the idea that the Communist dream was once beautiful, but was quickly corrupted. That the average Communist was a sincere person that merely wanted to make the world a better place, but was naive and made a pawn. This novel is about those people on the ground level of war that suffer for the corruption and manipulation of those leaders sitting far away in comfort. By the time this novel opens, The United Republics of the Red Star are in decline due to a horrible defeat in the small desert nation of Alistaan <A fantasy Afghanistan>. The bulk of the novels action happens in the memory of Maya Antares, who is visiting the grave of her husband who died in the horrors of the last battle of the Alistaan war. Maya finds she must balance her mourning for her fallen husband and her anger at her corrupt leaders, with the her love for her people and their dreams of Utopia.
I can't oversell this book. It's my new obsession.

I love the story of the Red Star. It seamlessly combines historical, mythological, political and spiritual elements into a plot that seems simultaneously fantastical and down-to-earth. My only complaint is that, as a writer, I wish they had gone a bit more into the nitty-gritty details of the story. Clearly, the artwork was the main focus in producing this book. The great thing about this particular edition of the book is that the larger pages (and great quality of the pages themselves) really shows off just how detailed and vivid the artwork really is. The 3-D modeling adds a level of realism and an epic scope that is really hard to accomplish by drawing alone. The detail of the coloring is fantastic. The lettering is great. The overall design of the book itself is spectacular; even the title page, table of contents, and credits pages look great. The fact that all of this can be so well-done, that so much effort and talent and (I'm sure) money went in to every other aspect of this book, and yet be so incredibly poorly bound is bordering on the absurd... This is like buying a Lamborghini and having the steering wheel fall off! If I were Gossett, I'd be pissed!
On a related note, does anyone know what the best kind of glue would be to repair this book before the cover falls off completely?
Not a bad read, but left more than a little to be desired.
