Sviatoslav Yemets -- Author Interview -- Egyptian Legend: Cowhatep

Dear Readers:

Title: Discover Ancient Magic and Adventure in "Egyptian Legend: Cowhatep" by Sviatoslav Yemets

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I am thrilled to introduce a remarkable book that takes readers on an enthralling journey through an ancient, magical world, "Egyptian Legend: Cowhatep" by Sviatoslav Yemets. Released on April 5, 2024, this novel transcends the conventional boundaries of fantasy and mythology, weaving a rich tapestry of conflict, adventure, and romance.

Sviatoslav Yemets crafts a universe where sentient animals rule, and old conflicts rooted in the very essence of nature are rekindled under the pressures of magical and societal upheavals. Imagine a world where a thousand years of peace crumble into millennia of war, involving all—from pharaohs to burglars, from gods to elementals.

At the heart of this narrative is Cowhatep, a black-and-white bull who, despite his origins as the mortal son of a god, is compellingly relatable. Cowhatep's journey begins after a fierce skirmish with predators, propelling him on a quest to return a vital artifact to his beloved, Princess Leila. This mission is not just a quest for love but a desperate effort to save all of Egypt.

Yemets masterfully combines elements of mythology with a fresh twist on fantasy, setting the stage in the Egyptian capital of Zalifem. The vivid portrayal of Cowhatep’s travels—through lush jungles and vast deserts, all without the comforts of modernity—adds a layer of authenticity and urgency to his quest.

"Egyptian Legend: Cowhatep" is a story about balance, fear, and the intriguing resolutions that arise in a world where the variety of lifespans, magical abilities, and animal species creates a unique backdrop for storytelling.

For anyone who loves a blend of adventure, mythology, and a sprinkle of romance, this book is a must-read. Sviatoslav Yemets has not only created a world you can lose yourself in but also a narrative that keeps you hooked till the last page. I give "Egyptian Legend: Cowhatep" a well-deserved five stars and recommend it wholeheartedly to all readers looking for a new legend to explore. Join Cowhatep in his epic saga and witness a story of ancient times that is as timeless as it is magical.

Now meet the author!

Best regards,

What inspired you to author this book?

I always had fantasies, and always loved reading, watching cartoons and animes. Geek culture was always part of my life. Due to it, when I was 10 years old, the decision was done: I want to write a book.

Where did you get the inspiration for your book’s cover?

My own fantasy) Always tried to look for some popular book covers to understand their main themes, positioning and everything else. After that I did my best to create as unique piece of art as possible)


Who has been the most significant influence on you personally and as a writer?

The society, geek culture, and the will to create a cool story.

What were your struggles or obstacles you had to overcome to get this book written?

Many years of corrections, lack of money and experience.

Tell your readers about your book.

Fantasy story in a magical world where no humans ever existed. Instead of them you see many different creatures and animals, from different epochs, myths, real history periods. They keep their own natural features, though most of them developed a bipedality (they mostly walk on two feet/paws/hooves); The main ideas, nature and characteristics of this book are: - Love - Conflicts - Misunderstanding - Xenophobia – War.


Who is your target audience, and why?

Mostly teenagers and older. The reason for it are that this book might be too complicated for children (though I don't doubt that some may understand and enjoy it). Plus, starting from approximately 10 years old, our ideas, tastes and overall character start to drastically change. This book is all about it. The changes and the character. Some heroes change because they want, some - because they must, few remain the same for many years. This book is a chronical of my own life. Through it, with my changes, changes of characters, ideas and text always followed me. And I hope this book, the beginning of an even bigger story and plot, will give people some ideas and inspiration!


What do you consider your greatest success in life?

When I will be a good farther, good husband and happy person. Being happy is a success already, and I hope to achieve it. Adding to it - freedom. I want to be free to choose almost everything)

What one unique thing sets you apart from other writers in your genre?

I am not the one to judge. Though instead I may say a bit about my strongest characteristic in writing, from my own opinion. I try to avoid using already created patterns, cliches, instructions on how to write a story (even the editor who helped me with the translation of a book told, that the style of a story, overall balance and readability are very high, and they are unique in the best way possible. A big compliment from an editor who already had 1000+ clients.
