Interview With Author Munaa Alfazea

1.      What inspired you to write this book? My Inspiration for writing mainly stems from my view of the world around me and how the world is and instead of writing a sad story as there is many other, A fantasy tale seemed more appropriate and as I love a good fantasy story whether it be in a book, series, or a movie format.  

2.      What exactly is it about and who is it written for? The book takes a dive at a dystopian future where our poor choices of managing our planet has led us to devolve out of hand where all our current issues are exacerbated with time and the influx of human population but just like all things even bad things must come to an end and so it did with an “enemy” on the horizon and protagonists that have become so numb and dull to the status quo , what will it take for them to wake up and take a step forward. The book is written for those that want something fresh and hopefully enjoyable to read while avoiding the typical cliché’s common in our era where the hero solves everything and the villain is very bad, just like our world at times even the story is grey. 


  1. What do you hope readers will get out of reading your book? A broader prospective and in short as the saying goes “no one bad is truly ever bad and no one good is ever truly good” yet even with that saying who are we to classify what is good or bad? We can only try our best.  
  1. How did you decide on your book’s title and cover design? The title of the book came about naturally as the name is an older name of earth according different sources ,some of Buddhist origins , some old native American tribes , it is unclear and unsubstantiated where the real name originated from but it seemed appropriate for such a story and the cover design stems from the ouroboros snake that eats its own tale symbolizing rebirth and repetition or even reincarnation depends if you want to look at it from a philosophy or an alchemist Lense. 
  1. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers – other than run!? Run? I would not tell anyone to run from their goals, dreams, or even your problems, like in the Agarthians running away from death is a terrible way to die slowly. 
  1. What trends in the book world do you see -- and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?  I think many more writers are getting into the fantasy genre giving twists to old tales like robin hood or peter pan. in the 20th century when the book publishing industry came to life more with the movie industry it helped it take off and nowadays it seems that every movie is predictable every series finale is disappointing and every book seems to be the same twist and no new innovations however with the pandemic and everyone sitting at home for some time depending on where you were in the world it helped give people some ideas and some new twists so I think the industry will go into a second renascences with new ideas while using inspirations from the old. 
  1. Were there experiences in your personal life or career that came in handy when writing this book? Of course, after working for years in many areas which exposed me heavily to mistreated individuals, the unfortunates while trying my best to help them, it influenced the dose of pain in the story. 
  1. How would you describe your writing style? Which writers or books is your writing similar to? I do not have a specific writer in mind however the basis of world building is inspired from multiple sources such as 1984, Lord of the rings, A song of ice and fire. 
  1. What challenges did you overcome in the writing of this book? Starting the story proved to be one of the difficult chapters to write and going through the process from writing and delivering the manuscript to publishing and advertising as this process started from 2021 until release at 2023. 
  1. If people can buy or read one book this week or month, why should it be yours? With the amount of repetitive work and a slight lack of interest in something repetitive, I believe my book would be a breath of fresh air when it comes to complexity and unpredictability to the characters and story.
