The Legend of Arkatak

By Khedidja Ouheb & M.A. Merzoug

Fantasy, Magical realism, Young adult, Paranormal | Paperback


The Legend of Arkatak recalls early Tolkien's Silmarillion and Gabriel Garcia Marquez style. After his father's death, 7-year-old paraplegic prince Arkatak is abruptly thrown out of his royal palace because of his handicap. His cruel murderous uncle quickly usurps the throne and rules the kingdom with an iron fist. Betrayed by his family, Arkatak and his mother are ghoulishly assassinated. Arkatak survives the evil barbaric assassination but his mother perishes. Arkatak is gravely wounded and in and out of consciousness. His mother corpse is cut into pieces and fed to wild wolves. Arkatak's body is carried out of the kingdom on the back of a filthy horse cart to a far away forsaken Kingdom. His body is covered with straws and dirt. He is bleeding and he is on the edge of death. He barely hears the assassins enraging conversations. He sees the full moon, faintly, through the straws, but tonight the moon has a reddish hue. He has only one thing in mind, revenge. He is thrown and left to die alone in the middle of the night in a far away abandoned derelict haunted palace. Such is the plight of Arkatak, will he meet his maker or avenge his mother. All night long, the angel of death lurks around Arkatak in the dark haunted palace. He eventually approaches Arkatak.

Both authors are of American/Berbers descent and both reside in the US. Khedidja Ouheb is a native French speaker and a nascent writer. She currently resides in Virginia. Her nickname is Kadi. She is remarried happily and she has a young son, whom she loves very much. She has published two short stories and a novel. Prior to writing a novel and prior to getting remarried, Khedidja's life was filled with insurmountable challenges. Kedidja was living with a partner who was both physically and mentally abusive ultimately sending her multiples times to the ER. Khedidja had little to no support to help her escape her daunting situation. With no family around, few friends, and no means of supporting herself financially, Khedidja felt trapped and unable to leave her dire circumstances. Through the aid of a nonprofit organization, Khedidja finally received support in her time of need and was given the resources necessary to change her life for the better. The first step Khedidja's charity took was to help her regain her self-esteem and the confidence to move forward in her life. The next step was to give Khedidja hope for a future with professional development, which enabled self-sustaining growth by finding a job. Once Khedidja could support herself financially, she was finally able to extricate herself from her terrible situation by getting divorced. She started going to school and now she is in a better position in life. Because of the support she received from nonprofit organizations, she no longer faces the threat of joblessness, homelessness, and poverty. They were able to help her transition in a way that made her feel secure and prepared her for the next step in her life. Her life is much better now because of their ongoing support and commitment. Their charity treated her like family and helped her regain the confidence she needed to survive and now thrive. Sometimes, one simple gesture - what may seem like a small gift to you - brings a smile and hope to those who are suffering. Today in order for Kadi to return the favor to the community, Khedidja is committed to providing help for fellow refugees and indigents through organizing and managing various fundraising events in her community. Funds from these events help supply adequate food, health kits, clothes, and safe drinking water. Khedidja has also written and published a novel. She has committed to use a quarter of all profits made on the sales of the novel to fund her nonprofit organization to continue helping others in need. M.A. Merzoug is just a very secretive, obscure and funny author.
