Embark on a classic coming-of-age epic fantasy.
Asahn dreamed of leading his tribe to greatness now that he was a man among them. But their homeland was growing harsh and unpredictable. Winters longer. Storms deadlier.
Then a mysterious spy is captured outside camp, revealing a more perilous threat still.
A powerful new force has set its sights on Asahn’s people—the secrets to why buried in his tribe’s ancient history. Their only advantage lies in fleeing into the wilds, but the stubborn pride of Asahn’s father endangers the tribe with every turn.
As the chieftain’s heir, Asahn must challenge his father’s missteps before he leads them into a trap, but doing what’s right could destroy their relationship forever.
Meanwhile, the old tribe storyteller insists the world is dying, and Asahn may be the only one who can save it. If they can escape their hunters and survive the unleashed fury of their withering homeland, that is.
The thrilling sequel to Rise of Tears.
The gift of the Aiune Kah granted the ability to sense the divine. But to Asahn, the mark of his lineage had proven to be nothing but a curse. Because of their ancestry, Asahn’s people were now hunted by the Order of Light, yet to what end, no one could say. The gods of Elerea had been gone for a thousand years, and their essence had faded from the dying land. Yet the Order preaches of a Rebirth, and their priests wield magic like the gods of old, a magic that Asahn can sense.
Asahn must uncover the Order’s secrets and the sinister purpose behind their hunt for the Kahn Shogal before it’s too late. His only hope for answers may reside in the Stonelord capital of Vulgotha Tor, but the ancient city stands behind enemy lines, and the Stonelords and Kahn Shogal hold an age-old enmity.
Follow the second part of Asahn’s journey as he contends with long-hidden family secrets and the divine echoes of Elerea’s ancient past. A choice stands before him. Should he seek and embrace the Greatness Lost, or should the power of the gods remain lost to history forever?
Either way, it can only end in a Fall of Tears.
It's Aquaman meets Mistborn.
When the moons rise over the endless seas of Nix, they bring only destruction. Three moons hold the ocean world under their sway and imbalanced by their erratic orbits. Immense waves called Moontides follow in their wake, washing away any attempt at civilization.
Amid the chaos, an orphan named Aust survives by his wits and the help of a sloppy Dredge Eel named Funk. He is named Orphan King for protecting the children abandoned upon the floating village of the Barges. But his ability to do so is about to be tested, and it will take everything he has and more.
A Moontide like no other is coming, and the world of Nix will never be the same. As a world of water, change is inevitable, but not even the legendary Guardians of the Tide will be able to protect them when moonrise comes.
Aust the Orphan King will be summoned by the tides and the waves of fate to be more than he ever thought possible, but only if he can heed the Moonrise’s Call and unlock the secrets inside.

Yet, he cannot do so alone. His journey will spawn the magical bloodline of the Ravenfells as he stands against the forces of death to prevent them from consuming the living world.

The Harvest of Souls (Formerly titled The Rise of a Matriarch)
Dark Heart of Ravenfell
The Peculiar Raven, like others of his kind, was drawn to death by his nature. But his hunger for death is unlike any other raven. He doesn’t just want to feed. He wants to know. And a curious sight one day will lead the Peculiar Raven on a journey of discovery across the boundaries of two worlds and towards a transformation that will resound through the centuries after. The history of the Ravenfells begins within these pages with the origins of the Raven King.
The Guardians watched the heavens for danger.
Never suspecting it would rise from below.
The Twin Moontide broke the world of Nix for a second time—a final blow to what remained of civilization. In the aftermath, the world of orphaned children and ignored suffering somehow grew crueler and more unforgiving still. Yet, Aust the Orphan King struggles on, sustaining his small kingdom of abandoned rejects with all he has.
But the breaking of Nix was only the beginning. An urgent warning from Rayatha Seasinger portends a new approaching doom, and the Guardians of the Tide are nowhere in sight.
An ominous song emanates from deep within the Nether Sea. With every note, it rises.
A song of change. A song of destruction.
To survive, Aust will have to cast aside old enmities and forge unexpected alliances. But learning to trust is not so easy for the Orphan King, and for good reason.
When a new life is born within the world of death, the ramifications of the Raven King’s bargain are made clear. The newborn child is seen as a defilement of the Netherworld by the spirits bound there, and their reprisal against the Raven King and the family who made such an abomination possible is swift and consequential.
The Raven King and the family he founded are banished from the world of death, and the veil is closed to them forever. But the Pact of the Raven’s Fel was intended to protect the veil and shield the two worlds from each other. Forbidden passage through the veil, they are no longer able to guard the boundary as they are sworn. But for the spirits who inflicted the curse, that is all part of their plan.
An ancient power has been biding its time for such an opening, and it is poised to strike. The only hope for either world, living or dead, may reside with the child born within death.
Beaumont Ravenfell never knew his parents or the bizarre circumstances of his birth. He was raised by the old Ravenfell witch, Hildegard, under the watchful eye of a peculiar raven.

The price of such answers, however, could be more than he ever imagined.
Imbued with the blood and power of demons and aided by a band of dark yet wondrous allies, Beaumont must face the consequences of his existence and the unsettling secrets of his family’s creation.
Once more, the Ravenfell lineage will face off against the forces of death in a battle that could tear down the boundary between worlds forever. Yet Beaumont Ravenfell is unique among all who came before him. His destiny awaits beyond the veil, and his quest to claim it will not only remake him but the entire legacy of the Ravenfell bloodline forever.
