Through the lens of Greek classicism, The SEEKER transports us into a realm where the mythical collides with the modern, as Icarus's fall from grace takes an unexpected turn. Saved from a watery fate by our protagonist, the fictional demigod Amitayus, the two embark on an epic odyssey, facing Zeus-conjured challenges. At its core, this captivating narrative delves into profound themes of self-discovery and the complexities of familial bonds.

The SEEKER is a must-read for anyone seeking a transcendent literary experience.
The SEEKER blends inspirational Visionary Fiction with Mythic Fiction in this epic reimagining of the tale of Icarus. In his plunge from glory, rather than perishing in the waters of the Aegean, Icarus is rescued by a passing mariner, fictional demigod Amitayus, who is unaware of his own divinity. The two embark on an epic odyssey, braving impediments only Zeus himself could whip up, as Amitayus seeks the truth that will earn him a place in Elysium. Told through the lens of Greek Classicism, The SEEKER puts a modern spin on classic archetypes that lend it unmatched spiritual resonance.
As individuals, we are products of the stories we’ve been exposed to. Collectively, humanity is the sum of its history. More potent than persuasion by far, storytelling changes minds by touching hearts. Contemporary buzzwords like Story and Narrative permeate popular culture, from the literary arena through cinema to social media, branding, advertising, political campaigning and propaganda. But why are we truly driven to tell stories in the first place, and how has story become the means by which we transform? 'LANGUAGE of the SOUL: How Story Became the Means By Which We Transform' explores the mechanics of catharsis, the Creative Process, the Artist’s Journey, the transformative power of narrative and what it is to be a born storyteller, with a call to action to embrace the power of STORY in our lives.
René Urbanovich Review
I thought this would be a book on story, and how to better use story as a tool in marketing or as a writer, screenwriter, animator, etc. I was surprised to discover that story is literally everywhere and in everything and the components of story can be applied to health and wellness, spirituality, and even the world at large. Dominick Domingo was able to weave in real life examples and experiences to undergird each profound truth--and there were many. Not only did I learn how to apply these thought forms to my own personal life, but I was inspired to be a part of the larger story. Overall, this book is packed with the empowerment tools we are all searching for and layered with concepts that make us happy to be human.
