First They Came for the Minùtemyn Volume I: We Call Them Hillebaîm - Fantasy Novel
- A story for those with the strength to fight back against those who would take all our freedoms away.
This is the tale of Gavríæl Kheruvím, a young mage commando travelling behind enemy lines to work with minùtemyn guerrilla fighters hiding in dæmyn controlled hills. Hidden from the enemy in secret caves, the narrator paints in third person limited form a magixial portrayal of the challenges of community, ideology, bravery, tragedy, and love. From this portrayal of Kheruvím’s love for the beautiful young dæmyn, Lîlît, to the travesty of The Day of Terror, this work is at once filled with action and battle, tenderness, and humour. First They Came for the Minùtemyn is not your average fantasy novel. Instead it is an emotionally gripping powerful tribute to anti-fascist ideals.
- Gavríæl is a Trueborn ærendmyn. Lîlît is an arch-dæmyn. They are forever entwined.
J. M. Blum’s enthralling work, First They Came for the Minùtemyn Volume I: We Call Them Hillebaîm, is the second book in the Entwined Spirits Saga. This story is what it means for heroes to sacrifice in the face of death.
