May 31, 2012 - PRLog -- Author Owen Black announced today the release of The Realms of Animar, published by Outskirts Press. Black’s new fantasy novel is a story of fear and hope, death and survival, as a teenage boy develops extraordinary powers that pit him against a viscous, blood-thirsty force in a fight to determine the fate of their unique and dangerous world.

Life is cruel for the hunted on Animar, a never before imagined place where everyone has two forms – one human and the other animal. Thane is a young teenage boy whose life takes an unexpected turn when his animal form suddenly develops incredible powers and becomes a creature that can shift the “natural” balance of life and bring hope to the hunted.

Elsewhere Fatalis, a powerful, blood-thirsty warmonger eager to rule Animar learns of this new threat to his dominion and builds a massive army with one simple yet sinister purpose - death to any who dare oppose him. With time running out Thane's people must turn to powerful yet reclusive strangers for help, beings who have thrived in the ocean and traveled the skies for years yet are now forced to take sides in an incredible war that will determine the fate of their world.
The hunters and the hunted come together and satisfy more than their appetites for flesh in an epic and suspenseful final battle for this singular world like no other in contemporary fiction.

The Realms of Animar is available on-line in paperback and hardback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
