About the Source of Power trilogy
Space Opera with elements of Epic Fantasy, following both heroes and villains in a universe where the line between magic and technology has been blurred.
This is an epic adventure, filled with action, humor, romance, friendship, and characters that are thrown into impossible situations where they are forced to become something they never thought they could.

The planet Entori
In the Free Kingdoms on the planet Entori, the royals are desperate to defend themselves and their kingdoms against the aggressive Taran Empire. A full attack from The Tarans would leave The Free Kingdoms chanceless, unless they can find the legendary city of Anzoria, which is said to contain a weapon of immense power.

Milky Way galaxy
In the milky way galaxy, the ruthless corporation Aterion Industries and their plans for domination are only held back by the Intergalactic Trade Council. The council was formed as an alliance between multiple governments and authorities to keep companies like Aterion Industries from gaining too much power, and they have succeeded at keeping them in check for some time. But when a previously unknown alien race starts attacking the human worlds; Aterion might be the only ones with a military power strong enough to counter the alien threat.

An Intergalactic Epic Worthy Of Space Opera Fans!
Overview: Toni Lindblom’s second chapter of the Source of Power Trilogy, “Birth of a God”, continues with a new race of intergalactic beings joining the fray, upsetting the balance of armies and world governments as the search for the source of infinite power diligently moves forward.

In “Birth of a God”, Author Tony Lindblom’s well-developed—and now familiar—main protagonists lead readers on a supercharged Sci-Fi adventure in which they are each overtaken by raw emotion and obsession to complete their individual missions, whether it be for vengeance, obedience, wealth, power, or romance.

The complexity and scope of Lindblom’s writing in this novel series is simply astonishing. Space opera fans, in particular, will enjoy reading about the diverse pantheon of alien beings that the author has created, just as much as how he seamlessly fits each individual character—no matter how small and seemingly insignificant—into the grand scheme of things. By the same token, techies will revel in the futuristic equipment and technology employed by the denizens of these worlds.

Lindblom has honed his writing skills in “Birth of a God”, compared to “Spark of Imagination”, the first chapter of the Source of Power Trilogy, making it a pleasant read for those readers bothered by typos, misspellings, and tenses. With a number of storylines moving forward and propelling the evolution of the story and characters from “Spark of Imagination”, I highly recommend reading “Birth of a God” in its respective order and within the context of the entire novel series.

“Birth of a God” contains graphic violence and adult situations, so it is appropriate only for ages 17 and up. I must also include a warning that sexual abuse survivors may be triggered by certain passages contained within this work.

Epic Sci-Fi On A Grandiose Scale!
Overview: In “Origin of Reality”, Tony Lindblom creates an exciting conclusion to his complex inter-galactic space opera, the Source of Power Trilogy, by tying up loose ends and responding to questions generated by Book 2—“Birth of a God”. Look for a surprise ending in this final chapter, as Lindblom’s characters’ paths finally cross, their goals begin to align, and the stakes become much higher when a threat that might end all existence becomes critical.

Tony Lindblom’s wrap up of the Source of Power Trilogy is just as engrossing and exciting as the first two books in this series. By now, fans of this trilogy have become familiar with Lindblom’s plotline and characters, allowing for an intimate understanding of the goals and aspirations driving this epic tale. As tragedy ensues, empires are tested, and several keys themes come to fruition—Not the least of which is the realization of Malkreth’s god-like powers and the imminent threat of his revenge.

With so many players on the board, along with the opportunity to time-travel, one would think it difficult, at best, to decipher the strategies and plotlines winding through this highly complex space opera. However, the author cultivates such an intimate bond between character and reader through the dissemination of background information and self-reflection that it becomes quite easy for one to immerse themselves in this elaborate space adventure driven by friendships, survival, and passion, highlighted with light humor.

“Origin of Reality” can work as a standalone read since the author provides a recap of the events that took place up until this point through one of his main characters. This novel is, however, best enjoyed when read in sequential order as part of the Source of Power Trilogy. With a multi-faceted plotline that is amplified by a cast of characters to whom readers can truly relate, Tony Lindblom’s “Origin of Reality”, along with the two preceding novels in the Source of Power Trilogy, are representative of epic Sci-fi on a grandiose scale. “Origin of Reality” does contain graphic violence, adult language, and adult situations. I highly recommend this read for older teens and adults who love immersive Sci-fi, imaginative space opera, and out-of-this-world, intergalactic adventures
Main Characters
Vincent’s story starts when he suddenly gets thrown into a strange world where powerful technology and magic all stem from the same SOURCE. 
The planet; Entori was once home to a powerful race; the Hizena. No one knows what happened to them, but they left behind weapons and artefacts all over the planet from their time there. These artefacts are all powered by crystals of immense power.
Vincent ends up in the Free Kingdoms, who are under constant threat from the more powerful Taran Empire to the north. Here he meets Eria; a young SOURCE mechanic and together they set out to search for the ancient city of the Hizena; Anzoria, in the hopes of finding a weapon powerful enough to protect themselves against the Taran aggression.

Malkreth sets out together with the captain and the crew on a delivery spaceship to secretly transport Queen Anexia of Daruna to Earth for a meeting to save her planet from Aterion Industries who wishes to experiment on her people and steal their powers. While on the way to Earth; he starts to develop amazing powers and tries to understand them, all while he also develops feelings for the queen.

Revica Aterion: 
Daughter of Kerian Aterion; CEO of Aterion Industries, which is the largest and most powerful company in the known universe.

Priestess in the order of the balance: An order which has sworn to guard the world from an Ancient god, while using his powers to stop anyone from releasing him.

Themos Lighthammer: 
A general in the Free Kingdoms army, forced to set out on a mission he does not believe in.

What was the inspiration for the story?
First and foremost; classical Japanese role-playing games, like Final Fantasy, Seiken Densetsu, Star Ocean and Chrono Trigger to name a few. Later on, I have found inspiration in modern action adventure games like Uncharted, and space opera games like Mass Effect. Many of the characters in the book are a mix between myself and people close to me, but also characters from the games.
There are of course several other influences for the story, but the classical JRPGs are the biggest of them. The Source of Power trilogy was originally intended to be a computer or video game but making a game that large by yourself, was a too large undertaking for me to manage. Now, I am not saying that writing a book is in any way easier, but it is far less time consuming.
