Apotheosis is a story of Newfoundland - a retelling of Newfoundland's history, with a focus on the 20th Century, in the form of a Greek Epic. Set in a primeval alternate version of the Avalon Peninsula called Kyandara (the Free North), the story transplants Newfoundland and Newfoundlanders into an ancient Mediterranean-like world of diverse islands, warring city-states, fantastic creatures and dangerous voyages. A series of events befalls this island nation, both fantastical and eerily familiar as history unfolds again, with Newfoundland folklore, culture and character all prominently on display. The narrative itself features a large cast of characters but focuses on Darek the apprentice apothecary, a quiet and unassuming young man. His life takes an unexpected turn when his home receives a visit from a long lost hero of a foreign land, followed by a strange vision visited on Darek himself. He must eventually leave his island and plunge into the unknown, leaving behind a country to which he may never return, or which he may not recognize even if he does.About the Author:
Patrick C. Gear is a pharmacist from Placentia Bay, Newfoundland. His love of storytelling, science and the rugged beauty of rural Newfoundland fueled his vision of the Apotheosis series. The Age of Awakening is his first novel.
