The gods and monsters of old really did exist. Some still do. All across the globe, they are coming out of hiding and hunting their own. The final battle of the most ancient war has begun.

Fiona Patterson and Zeke Prisco are suddenly swept up in these cataclysmic events when a group of very strange and frightening men arrive at the hospital for the aged where they work, looking for a catatonic old man named Peter.

In their attempt to save him, Fi and Zeke unwittingly embark on an adventure of myth and magic beyond imagination, space and time.

Thrilling, cinematic, humorous and horrifying, Paternus is the critically acclaimed debut novel by Dyrk Ashton. It's been described as contemporary fantasy adventure, urban fantasy, and mythic fiction, and compared to works by such diverse figures as Neil Gaiman, Joss Whedon, Jim *****er, Kevin Hearne, Anne Rice, Dean Koontz, Clive Barker, Roger Zelazny, Clive Cussler, J.R.R. Tolkien, Grant Morrison, and Alan Moore. The audience is Adult to New Adult, as opposed to Teen or YA, though savvy 16 or 17 year olds might survive without permanent damage.
