A high fantasy retelling of the myth of Bellerophon and the Chimaera

Delight in a creative retelling of the myth of Bellerophon and the Chimaera. Follow the path of a young man destined for greatness. Delve into a world with more history and more secrets than meet the eye. Learn the Code of Lords. Marvel at the Guardians. Despise the dishonorable and pursue the piety of the gods. Enter an ancient library by a hidden passage and claim the Blessed Blades, to cleave the lion's head from the beast!

"The Chimaera Regiment" is the first novel of author Nathaniel Turner, and the first in a trilogy. Set in a world dissimilar from our own, this traditional fantasy tale interweaves elements of classical myths from ancient Greece and Rome with an original story of destiny, history, technology, and power.

FROM THE BACK COVER:
It is late autumn in the 2040th year of the Sixth Era. For centuries, peace has reigned among the tribes of men, but as an early chill descends on the land, a new war looms from the south. Lord Derek, ruler of the Chimaera Regiment, seeks to reestablish the ancient Fylscem Empire under his banner, and he will stop at nothing to restore the dominion of his bloodline.

Before him lies the idyllic Valley of Kyros, home of the Alkimites, where the last direct heir of the old empire lives in ignorance. Guided by the ancient Guardian Lord Aneirin, Hector son of Abram must travel to the primeval capital of his heritage. There, in the Library of the Ancients, he must retrieve the three Blessed Blades of the Emperor, symbols of his authority. Agents of the Chimaera Regiment pursue him, and barbaric tribes stand in his way, but his path may unlock the secrets of the past, and it could bring light—or darkness—to the future.

Nathaniel Turner was born in Texas in 1988. He lived in Cyprus, Russia, India, Singapore, and the United States (Texas, Alabama, North Carolina, Virginia, and Wisconsin). He has moved, on average, slightly less often than once per year (depending on how you count it). He graduated high school (or secondary school) in Singapore in 2006. He graduated magna cum laude from Baylor University in 2010, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Classics and Religion. He has worked as a high school Latin teacher, a web designer, a tool salesman, a delivery driver, and in software quality assurance.

He married in July 2010; his son was born at the end of May 2014. His father is a musician and political scientist, and his mother is a mathematician and educator.

He speaks English fluently; he can read and write Latin and ancient Greek; he learned a modicum of Russian, but has forgotten most of it; and he studied French for six years, but it didn't quite take. He has studied mathematics and astrophysics, and delights in both, but focused on the humanities; whenever learning something new, he endeavors to answer the question, "How then should we live?" He suffers from type I diabetes and mild, undiagnosed OCD.

He is currently working on two sequels to "The Chimaera Regiment," and he is planning a series of space operas, a science fiction series following a space explorer, a retelling of the myth of Orpheus, a historical fiction novel about a saint's life, an allegory, a collection of historical fiction short stories, and a modern-day story about joy and loss.
