Half Spirit

REN-SHEN Half Spirit, the journey commences

In the first of the REN-SHEN series, Steve Nedelkin begins his journey into the supernatural world. After experiencing a series of tragic events at a martial-arts fighting tournament, Steve begins to learn the truth of his ancestral ties.

His path leads him to Japan where he finds true love with the beautiful Megumi. He also gains more insight into his other-worldly abilities with the help of Temyana, a powerful Orphic priestess bound to his bloodline under an ancient oath.

All is dramatically taken away from him by his very own father-in-law, the evil Kumicho, a powerful demon and one of The Few.

Steve finds redemption in Fujian China with the god Si-Ming, Director of Destinies. He quickly discovers his inextricable link to the great Five Ancestors of Shaolin – which ultimately reveals his divine decree as REN-SHEN, God of Justice.

But to summon his god, he must find what Kumicho took away from him …. his humanity.

Came here from the comment section where you got your inspiration at so long ago, the synopsis reminds me of my favorite videogame series Shenmue, not really in the story, so don’t worry about changing it or anything, but in theme. It’s very serene and spiritual, and that’s basically what I love about Shenmue. As an amateur writer (and filmmaker) myself, I hope that I can read this very soon. Sounds like an amazing read!

Thanks very much Nikolai. What a great comment. The third section of REN-SHEN Half Spirit sees the hero immersed in Chinese spirituality. I spent a great deal of time studying Chinese texts to ensure the mythology was delivered with authenticity. Won’t be long now! I don’t know anything about Shenmue, but will grab my son and check it out together! Thanks again.
