The Nucle Saga I is a 2012 fantasy fiction novel written by Saudi-born Indian author, Saif Ur Rahman. It was released in Hyderabad, India[1] and in 2013 was honoured and awarded by Tanzeem Hum Hindustani, a NRI group based in Riyadh.[2] The novel was internationally published as an eBook via Amazon Kindle and later in the form of paperback.[3][4] The novel serves as the first part in the upcoming series. The story is about four teenagers embarking on a journey against an Empire.[5]



The story is based on the events in a fictitious world centered around the "Mainlands". A merciless Emperor called Grimoran has risen from the west and laid siege of a sizable portion of the Mainlands. His gigantic Empire (known as the Axal Empire) threatens peace and courts destruction to the surrounding kingdoms. To repel the Emperor's invading attack, the remaining eastern kingdoms of the Mainland unite and form an alliance. A resistance leader, Eroberer meets two boys Zindor and Rador who pledge to contribute. Eroberer sends them on a mission to acquire a set of magical objects. Joined by a Gladanian town girl: Rohya and Eroberer’s little sister: Esha, they are escorted by a man they meet on their journey called Nebu. The five travel together to pursue a powerful legend and collect objects.
