The Healing Art of Classic Literature

Classic literature takes you from where you are and sets you in the company of the wise, the deep, the wounded.

Lately, I have been diving more into literature. I’ve always had a love of old literature, especially classic literature.

Come the Eventide by Chris Riker

Imagine the earth in shattered remains of what it is now. Creatures are in a deficit. Humans are fighting for insignificant materials as they neglect what truly matters while their environment falls apart around them. Just when you think it’s the end, hope is found in the strangest of places. A seven-armed Octopod named Septielle sees the world differently than her sea creature counterparts, the way it once was and the way it should be. She has a vision of the earth restored to its former glory but dies before she can see it come to fruition. After her passing, a dolphin named Muriel takes on this mission and enlists a human named Anadare to work alongside her. They strive to fight and speak out against those that are destroying the earth and go to war against pirates who are out to kill the earth and all of those that stand in their way. But will the pirates, tourists, leaders, or even the people on the right or left, be able to put aside their differences to send Muriel on the greatest journey they could ever imagine?
