About the Author:
When Ian Alexander's debut young adult epic fantasy novel ONCE WE WERE KINGS first launched in ebook format in May 2011, it instantly hit three bestseller lists on Amazon.com. Mr. Alexander first wrote in the fantasy genre because of a commission by a very important and influential person: His 6-year old son.
ONCE WE WERE KINGS (#1 Bestseller Amazon.com in multiple categories) is the legacy left to Mr. Alexander's children and the first in a series of epic fantasy novels which appeals to readers ages 8 through 98.
The Top Shelf said of ONCE WE WERE KINGS:
"...invokes awe in the reader that I've only felt with J.R.R. Tolkien, David Eddings and before them both, C.S. Lewis."
