About Bernie Anés Paz
Heya, visitor! I'm a Puerto Rican fantasy author that writes Latinx-inspired settings and characters. You can usually find me devouring fantasy books and story-rich video games, visual/graphic novels, and anime whenever I'm not wordsmithing.
I'm also a former U.S. Army medic and spent most of my service time working in an ER, which was an amazing and humbling experience. Before that, I worked for Dell, which helped spark my love for customizing tech and computer-building. Right now I'm writing fantasy novels and caring for doggies in Tigard, Oregon, and loving every moment of it!

Roun was born clanless, depriving him of a future in an empire where bloodlines and reputation mean everything. His only hope for escaping the life of an outcast lies in being awakened by the Eldest Throne and becoming a guardian of humanity.
But when his dream finally comes true, Roun finds himself stranded on the path to immortality with only a fragment of the spiritual powers he should have received. Roun, however, is used to making do with less—and will let neither rigorous training nor grotesque chimeras stand in the way of his ascension.
To find his own path, he will need to search for the answers hidden within. What he uncovers will forge him into a hero unlike any other—if it doesn’t leave him an abomination first.
This is a progression fantasy series inspired by cultivation/xianxia/wuxia novels, though it has far more western influences blended in than some of the other books in the subgenre.
The Primordial Wound has festered with corruption since the birth of the world. The island tribes have warred against its spawn for just as long—and they are losing.
Burdened by the same spiritual affliction that drove the first Halfborn insane, Colibrí lives in exile with little more than her warrior oaths and her son. But when Colibrí discovers corrupted land hidden away by sorcery, those same oaths drive her to find answers in an effort to protect the very people who fear her.
Narune dreams of earning enough glory to show that he and his mother Colibrí are nothing like the Halfborn that came before them. Becoming a mystic will give him the strength he needs, but first, Narune will need to prove himself worthy in a trial of skill and honor.
Together, Colibrí and Narune must learn to become the champions their people need—and face the curse threatening to scour away their spirits with fury.
