Family Social Turmoil

This graphic novel is about the separation of the social gap on planet Darracia and the lust for power. The plot mirrors today’s problems generated when the gap widens between the lower and higher social classes and the violent defending of differing ideologies. Numerous times in our history entrenched aging leaders are pitted against the younger generation wanting to create positive change. The novel introspectively introduces this classic battle in a unique setting and in thrilling detail.

The dwellers on the once peaceful planet named Darracia are in the beginning throes of social upheaval. Young Prince V‘sair, a half-breed whose mother is from another planet, is coming-of-age. He undertakes a quest to generate power by transmuting from three ether elements the haunting and elusive "Fireblade," and enters the quest to solve the enigma of the power of the heart’s mettle. V’sair’s uncle, Staf Nuen, is greedy for supreme power. It’s family member against family member as young V’sair deals with difference, coming of age and trying to deny Nuen the conquering of Darracia.

Science Fiction Fantasy

Schism is not a conventional science fiction novel. The story line combines copious elements such as coming of age metamorphosis on a planet much different from earth; political machinations, social unrest at the edge of a sword, cost of social gaps in a complex society, and fast-passed edge-of-your seat action with vivid characterization. "The teen (V’sair)...blazing white hair...whipcord lean...high forehead...wolf-like face...bright blue eyes..."

Good Battles Evil

"He (V’sair) saw his father go down...he leaped into the fray...a feral snarl...their blades rang with hatred..." The novel is a fast read, filled with intrigue, and provides a suspenseful, unique ending. Will good overcome evil?

Best selling author Michael Phillip Cash is a master of fantasy, suspense and the paranormal. The novel is an absorbing read, drawing the reader completely into the story line. Cash writes in a superb, unique literary style, and Schism provides the foundation for his future sci-fi novels. He is the author of the popular novels Brood X: A Firsthand Account of the Great Cicada Invasion, Stillwell, and The Hanging Tree. He has an English degree and MBA, and resides with wife and children in a tree home in Desa, New York.
