omri koresh, recently published his first book, an illustrated masterpiece called The Black City of Nuerva, which showcases his stylish creativity.
The book is a personal journey, written in first person. The main character is written as both male and female. The book is full of original artwork, with 60 paintings created as a re-interpretation of what is actually happening in the various scenes in the story. The book and the original artwork took several years and a lot of hard work to complete, and I am really excited to share it with you.
The day of the attack, I was sitting at the park, reading a book. Slavers rode in on monstrous ships. They took everyone, including me.
I was taken to a horrible black city called Nuerva, where the buildings were jagged lines cutting across the sky. A man, the Captain, took me as his plaything and kept me as his own prisoner. After many days, I finally found the courage to escape.
Alone and frightened, I ran to the furthest edge of the city, and there I found hope. There was another city in the distance—a bright, colorful one. All I had to do was cross the bridge.
I didn’t make it. I was shot at the edge of that bridge which connected the light and the dark cities, moments from freedom.
But I wouldn’t die just yet. It wasn’t my time.
