Review

"Once I started reading I couldn't put it down!" -- Amazon Review"With almost uninterrupted action, a very detailed universe, very complex characters and an excellently developed plot, this book deserves to be among the best in Epic and Military Fantasy!" -- B.A. Leon"The interwoven threads of suspense, intrigue, difficulties and investigative solutions sprinkled with a touch of humor makes this an exciting and entertaining read. You will not be bored, put this at the top of your 5 star books to be read list." -- Goodreads Review"Hard hitting action from the start and a fabulous array of interesting characters. This one is hard to put down!" -- Goodreads Review

The Silent Champions follows Captain Aravon and his specially chosen elite warriors (7 in all) as they face enemy hordes in impossible battles. With no magic (beyond a bit of healing magic), all they've got is human ingenuity and tactical genius to carry them through the war alive. It's a story of action and battle and bloodshed, but at its core, it's all about the characters:
  • Captain Aravon, the lone survivor of an ambush that massacred his entire company
  • Colborn, a half-breed who has lived a life of misery and hardship
  • Belthar, a giant with a heart as big as it is soft and easily hurt
  • Skathi, an archer who has had to fight every day of her life in the military
  • Noll, a snarky scout whose prickly demeanor hides his true goodness
  • Zaharis, a mute alchemist and priest on a quest for an impossible treasure
  • Rangvaldr, a healer with the heart of a warrior and a burning desire for a land of peace
Beneath the epic adventure, it's a look at the very real people who put aside their lives and desires to fight to defend the innocent!

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I am, first and foremost, a storyteller and an artist--words are my palette. Fantasy and science fiction are my genres of choice, and I love to explore the darker side of human nature through the filter of heroes, villains, and everything in between. I'm also a freelance writer, a book lover, and a guy who just loves to meet new people and spend hours talking about my fascination for the worlds I encounter in the pages of fantasy and sci-fi novels.

Speculative fiction provide us with an escape, a way to forget about our mundane problems and step into worlds where anything is possible. It transcends age, gender, religion,race, or lifestyle--it is our way of believing what cannot be, delving into the unknowable, and discovering hidden truths about ourselves and our world in a brand new way. Fiction at its very best!
