The Akiri series written by author Brian D. Anderson is comprised of a total of 3 books published between 2016 and 2017. Anderson has written this series in collaboration with Steven Savile. They have described this series as a heroic fantasy filled with adventure, adrenaline rush, and action. The debut book of this series is called ‘Akiri: The Scepter of Xarbaal’. It was released by the Longfire Press in 2016. This novel features the primary characters in the form of Zemel, Akiri, and several others. Anderson has set the story in a fictional world called Acharia. The book opens by showing that Acharia is at war. It is ruled by Zemel, the Sorcerer King. He claims to be invincible and gets his hands on a weapon of madness called Scepter of Xarbaal created by death god Xarbaal. With the magical power of the Scepter comes a curse of madness. When the people close to Zemel realize that he has gone mad in his thirst for power, they try to stop him by stealing the scepter.

When Zemel learns about this betrayal, he kills Akiri’s father, who hid the scepter. Then, he raises Akiri as a loyal servant. Zemel casts his magic on Akiri with the help of an Oathstone that keeps him connected. The Oathstone prevents Akiri from telling any lie to Zemel. In this process, Akiri is granted immense powers that make him stronger, faster, and a very good fighter. Zemel sends Akiri on a difficult mission. He asks him to reach out to his estranged uncle and trick him into thinking that he has left the king. Up to this point, Akiri doesn’t have any memory about his past. He seems to have no concern about his father’s death or the circumstances in which he died. When Akiri begins the mission, he is freed from the Oathstone. As a result, his powers get diminished and he turns into a normal person. Now, the only thing he remains good at is sword fighting. During the journey, Akiri comes across a dragon that awakens his powers. He moves ahead with the mission carrying numerous doubts in his mind. He keeps wondering whether he should remain loyal to Zemel or betray him and take revenge for his father’s death.

The next installment of the series is called ‘Akiri: Sands of Darkness’. It contains the central characters as Kyra and Akiri. Initially, it is described that Akiri & Kyra have traveled across the Valharoth Desert in search of fortune among the mysterious and the rich kingdoms located in the East. Now, Akiri has turned against the gods and decided to make a new destiny for himself. As the gods cannot be ignored so easily, Akiri gets caught in a web of difficulties again. Akiri learns that an old evil has spread all over in the Yagash kingdom as a plague. In order to overcome the plague, the kingdom’s dark leader orders the Hajazar Cult to capture the innocent for blood sacrifices. One of the young men they set their eyes on is someone whom Akiri has promised to protect. If he fails in saving the child, then the old gods will return and this would mean the destruction of the world. Akiri is determined not to let that happen. He has by side the support of Kyra and his own wit and sword. He makes himself ready to face the cunning, powerful, and fierce enemy.
