From the Author
The Ghosts of the Past is the epic middle chapter of the Anlei's Legacy Trilogy. It was also the quickest to write, taking just 40 weeks.
This is the dark middle chapter, the trilogy's "Empire Strikes Back" where I found myself tapping into my darkest memories from a violent childhood.
But it is more than just an expression of long repressed memories of evil, vengeance, and pain. This story, while dark, is fundamentally hopeful and filled with music. Six songs appear in this epic, two of them with their music retained, recorded as the soundtrack to the book's trailers. Here, more than any other story written so far, you hear echoes of "The Lord of the Rings" singing in harmony with "Pride and Prejudice."
This is a story of love, loss, hope, and sacrifice. Prepared to be inspired.
