Namtar

The ancient epic of Gilgamesh inspires an ambitious Sumerian lad to become a friend to the king himself.
Vanity will lead him to the pinnacle of power. Now his fate is in the hands of the godlike king of Sumer and Akkad Shulgi-Sin and the demon of fate and death Namtar. Even the gods have no control over Namtar.

Synopsis

The information about the ancient Sumerians is primarily academic in nature. It is usually intended for a narrow circle of specialists. The author’s idea was to transform that information into something more understandable and make it accessible to a wide range of readers.
Without pretending to have absolute scientific and academic accuracy, using artistic fiction, the novel is based on historical realities and facts. An immaculate combination of science, creativity and art. The reader will feel the atmosphere and get immersed into the world of the long-vanished Sumerian civilization.

The characters revived in the novel possess similar characteristics and behavior to modern people, but possible coincidences are incidental.
When reading the novel, the reader will draw parallels between the Sumerian society and our own civilization. Perhaps some things have changed since then, perhaps others haven’t, by comparing the two realities the reader will most likely realize how much truth there is to the saying “There is nothing new under the sun”.

Sales arguments

  • You can read the translation of the first chapter as a sample of the book: https://drive.google.com/file/d/15p8i9ey7Iz-b3qzQFmiC4AjEzWxO6WYU/view?usp=sharing
  • The Sumerian theme is mainly historical, but the novel can also be considered a romantic story.
  • The book already exists in Russian, and the author is now happy to finally present it to the English-speaking audience.
  • The novel is intended to be a part of a trilogy, and Namtar is only the first book in it.

Similar titles

  • Sumerians: A History From Beginning to End by Henry Freeman, self-published in 2016. The book shows the Sumerian history scientifically. Vlad's nove, on the other hand, details a story where the historical accuracy is sometimes overlooked in order to achieve a better artistic effect.
  • Kingdoms of Sumeria - a series by Amazon Prime. Its plot is completely historical. The Sumerian theme is unusual and has yet to be explored in cinematography. With a screenplay, it's possible to create a movie or a series based on Namtar.
  • Trade winds to Meluhha by Vasant Davé, RR Roy National Agency 2017. The author of the book unites historical facts with fiction and shows the Sumerian civilization from the perspective of a foreigner. Similarly to Vlad's book, his tale has a protagonist and a storyline. However, the protagonist in Namtar is a royal dignitary, which allows the reader to get a glimpse into the structure of the Sumerian society and lifestyle during the last sixty years before the end of the legendary civilization.

Audience

Intended for an 18+ age group; for individuals who have a liking for historical fiction; for people with a soft spot for romantic stories with an unexpected plot twist; for lovers of stories about the royal court’s life and palace intrigues.
