Scion of the tyrants of mankind. Harbinger of the end times. Seeker of the power of the gods.
So Talaos's enemies call him. Yet how much is true?

The tale of the Storm's Own Son continues here.

Talaos has swept aside all who opposed him, and brought unity to war-torn Hunyos. He has dared to claim the fallen title of Imperator, the first in six hundred years. Now he sets his ambition on something far larger. But his true enemy, the Living Prophet, has many plans in motion.

Danger grows in the world, and within himself. Gentle-mannered emissaries gather new followers in nearby lands. Hostile armies ride from the trackless plains, and traitors lie in wait at home. Three shades, the ghostly wills of his enemy's mightiest servants, circle inside his very soul, severing him from the source of his power. Yet the power Talaos now seeks is far greater. It demands choices that cannot be undone, at a price he cannot yet foresee.

About Anthony Gillis

The child of hippie adventurer parents, I was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and spent my early childhood, sequentially, on my father's sailboat, an island in the territorial waters of Costa Rica, a school bus refurbished as a home, and a ramshackle house near the Ft. Lauderdale shore with a leaky roof and a sand yard.Something in all that made me decide to join the military at 18, and then get a degree in History, a diploma in Accounting, and an MBA while pursuing a career in finance and management. In a family of bohemian writers and performers, I suppose inevitably there would be a black sheep.Now, I'm putting my muse to work, and I hope you enjoy the results!
