Author: Davis Ashura
Genre: YA Fantasy
At seventeen years old, William Wilde was orphaned because of the magic in his veins, magic he doesn’t even know exists. Eight months later, Serena Paradiso enters his life. Captivating and confident, she holds secrets about William’s heritage. His friends know them, too.
All of them watch William, studying him, wondering if he is the one for whom they’ve been searching. So does Kohl Obsidian, an undead horror who seeks to devour William’s magic.
Far greater stakes arise when William learns of the hidden island of Sinskrill, home to the mahavans, magic users bent on humanity’s enslavement. Worse, the legendary god, Shet, banished to the mythical world of Seminal, a place of monsters and corruption, seeks to return to Earth, the home he was once ruled millennia ago.
In order for William to survive these dangers, he needs more than skill, will, or power. He must learn to trust, have faith in, and forgive friends and enemies alike.
About the Author:
Davis Ashura is a writer of such sublime depth and beauty that his works have been known to draw a tear from even the hardest of hearts.
Just kidding. But he does write.
Davis is humble, yet refers to himself in the third person. He resides in North Carolina, sharing a house with his wonderful wife who somehow overlooked Davis’ eccentricities and married him anyway. As proper recompense for her sacrifice, Davis then unwittingly turned his wonderful wife into a nerd-girl. To her sad and utter humiliation, she knows exactly what is meant by ‘Kronos’. Living with them are their two rambunctious boys, both of whom have at various times helped turn Davis’ once lustrous, raven-black hair prematurely white (it sure sounds prettier than the dirty gray it actually is). And of course, there are the obligatory stray, black cats (all authors have cats – it’s required by the union). They are lazy, and yet, somehow, they complete the household. As for Davis, when not working – nay laboring – in the creation of works of fiction so grand some might few read them, he practices medicine, but only when the insurance companies allow it.
