PRAISE FOR THE STORMBORN SAGA:
"I could not and did not want to stop reading." -Aaron, Amazon Reviewer ★★★★★
"This series is full of good heart pounding adventures at every turn, love it. I am getting every books by this author written in this imaginary universe. Fantasy with magic at its best. Get the series and I hope you lose lots of sleep as I did." -DextonL, Amazon Reviewer ★★★★★
"I was riveted from the beginning to the end!" -APBT Fan, Amazon Reviewer ★★★★★
JT Williams makes all his characters feel like main characters. In this Stormborn Saga you will find strong independent REAL female characters, plus multiple story arcs. The growth that each of the characters work through is written with depth & explored well. The fight scenes aren't sugar coated, and you can tell the author loves a good battle. I can't wait for the final book in this saga to be released, if you are wondering where to jump in at in this massive universe, this is the best place to start.
"Epic. Fast. Heroic. The Rogue Elf series is classic epic fantasy with none of the fluff. ★★★★★"
War calls the elves of Urlas to battle. But Kealin, a young half-elf training to be a Sacred Blade, and his three siblings, are forbidden to go. They are not ready, or so they're told. But Kealin's lineage has a dark secret and the High Council of Urlas fears what he may become...
Kealin is about to learn that secret and in the cataclysm emerging, Urlas will wish they had embraced it.
When the soothsayer of Urlas tells Kealin that doom comes for all that left for the war, he and his siblings set off on what may be a one-way journey to the edge of the world. Darkness is upon them and a specter that dwells between the borders of the living realms has been waiting for them.
The Rogue Elf awakens... but is it too late to save those he loves?
A brave group of companions await you:
Kealin- a defiant half-blood that has little care of the purist High Elves and their beliefs. Eager, skilled, and sometimes a bit cocky, he fights with furious zeal to protect those he cares about.
Alri- The only female elf in the group. Her powers are far beyond her brothers. As a potent magic-user training under the best of the arcane masters, she knows much about her deadly art but necromancy is her natural gift. With her, a power unlike that taught in her homeland is just within her grasp yet she doesn't realize it yet.
Taslun- A son after his father's image. Strong, loyal to Urlas, and at 800 years old nearly ready to go before the High Council and be christened as a Blade of Urlas. He is the last anyone expects to become defiant. As the oldest sibling, he naturally desires to look after the young ones. They'll need his skills if they are all to survive.
Calak- The youngest of the males and with equal qualities of being cocky and honorable. While he is capable with a sword, his true gift is in his love of astrology, history, and ancient knowledge. Where he lacks in fighting ability he makes up for what his more 'violence-centric' brothers see as 'boring'.
Valrin- Not an elf but also not a normal human. However, the greatest mystery to the half-elves is his level of knowledge of the vast Glacial Seas and what he seems to know but not say about their quest. A loyal companion that has known of the elven lands and the coming darkness on the seas far before the half-elves left their home, he is the key to much to come. He commands the Aela Sunrise, a not-so-simple sailing vessel crafted by the ancient Sea Peoples of the North.
PRAISE FOR HALF-BLOODS RISING:
"Half-Bloods Rising is the perfect start to the best series since R.A. Salvatore created the famous Drizzt Do'Urden series. Drizzt Do'Urden meet Kealin, the Rogue Elf of Urlas. Adventure, excitement, companions (friendships), hidden powers, unknown/unclear journeys, etc. create a story/series that draws you in and keeps you on the edge of your seat." Aaron, Amazon Reviewer ★★★★★
"A well written story with plenty of action, magic, and twists and turns. I was shocked and amazed at the same time. Can't wait to read the next book in the series.
One final duel remains. A showdown between the righteous and the unholy.
Kealin and Tulasiro journey North with haste and the half-elf of Urlas knows he may not return. His challenger has haunted his mind and struck down his love ones; Vankou, the god of death, will not take another. Kealin will have vengeance for the fallen. Armed with the god-sword gifted to him by a fallen deity and the blood of the Dwemhar surging in his veins, Kealin prepares for the final battle.
But the seas he once sailed upon have changed much in the last few years. The world quakes as all the energies of magic swirl towards a great gathering in the heavens above the dark parts of the north. A great return is upon the living realm.
The time of the Dwemhar has come. When at last the final threads of both the Stormborn of legend and Dwemhar of old converge, Kealin will discover the terrible truth and the identity of his true adversary... an entity that even the ancient races failed to destroy... an entity that threatens all of the ascended and living alike.
The Rogue Elf brings his own darkness upon the realm.
The western lands tremble. The city of Eh-Rin is under siege and with the nearing eclipse of the moon, the powerful spells protecting the ancient city will fail. The legions of the Grand Protectorate ready their forces to smite the very place that stands as the last beacon of hope in a darkening world.
In a desperate assault to save Eh-Rin, Kealin and his companions draw upon the power of death magic and unleash a horde of their own in a final attempt to defeat the enemy that has already claimed two elven kingdoms, the last rebelling kingdom of men, and will soon reveal a true terror against all peoples of magic.
But this is all a distraction. A power worse than all the armies of the land draws near... something that has been among them the entire time...
Kealin bands together with his many unlikely companions in this battle-filled, vengeance fueled next instalment of The Rogue Elf series!
Get it now!
Death becomes the Rogue Elf's greatest ally...
Kealin’s blades still reek from the blood of Vakron-Tur. He defeated the dark wizard but lost his elder brother. The dark god Vankou's voice resonates in his mind and he struggles to control what little of himself that remains. Now being so close to reaching his sister but with so much lost already, he wonders what end will come from his struggles.
Journeying south with his companions, he meets Veora, a beautiful but sadistic necromancer. As an acolyte of the Five and a student from the High Sanctum of magic, she agrees to lead them to her masters. But while this practitioner of death magic knows what Kealin seeks, he senses a presence about her. Something she is hiding...
When it comes to magic, is necromancy no more than another path to life or a shadow of a darker and all-consuming evil?
Kealin won't expect the truth to all that has transpired.
A forsaken quest, three old friends, and the camaraderie that unites them in their last true adventure.
Jalin had his days fighting orcs in the southern lands. Now, he is a father and his old 'orc-slaying' friends are Masters, responsible for teaching the next generations of elves...
But when the Shaman of Urlas needs them for a simple enough mission, they jump at the chance to get away even if just for a day...
What they don't know, will soon haunt them. Nothing in their lands is ever as it truly seems and that secret is just within their grasp.
The rogue elf will never stop.
It's been five frustrating years. Kealin had begun to doubt she was still alive. But now, by chance, he has discovered rumor of a powerful seer dwelling far to the south. Someone that could actually help him reach his sister.
To reach this enigmatic entity, Kealin must trace a path of blood down an entire region. Dogged by a dark curse on his own soul, he must run the gauntlet of the Grand Proetectorate's legions and their anti-elven zealotry. Kealin's only aid comes from a duo of fugitive of treasure hunters and a mysterious woman of magic unlike any he has ever met.
Darkness is gathering. Will the return of an ancient sleeping evil prevent him from saving the last of his family?
When blood fills the mountains, demons will awake.
You were there when he lost everything, be there when he fights to take it back! Order the epic sequel to Half-Bloods Rising now!
He is a Ranger of the North. His fellow Rangers, those he would call friends, are dead. Now, he has been branded a deserter and a thief. He only wishes to get back to his family alive.
It is said that Fadis the Ranger stole something from the king... Now a massive bounty is on his head. But in particular, is isn't the sell-swords and bounty hunters that he should worry about. There is a powerful mage on his trail and this man cares little of a reward of gold.
Only a few hours from his wife's embrace and his son's smile, will he, at last, be free from his past? Nothing ever remains the same and this Ranger is about to learn that. The hard way.
If Kealin is going to help either of them he must find Risdannia. But he is alone in a strange land with few allies.
War encroaches. Kealin is torn between helping his friends and uncovering a way to save his siblings. Finding Risdannia is only a part of his journey. A powerful wizard has emerged and in his path are thousands of innocent people. With his resurrected orc hordes, he seeks to exterminate all who threaten him.
But for Kealin, his every action curses those he loves to their deaths. He cannot escape his past and the true enemy may not be who he thinks.
