About John H. Carroll

John H. Carroll was the youngest of seven children and was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1970 where he was kept in a dresser drawer with the clean socks. Luckily, he wasn’t kept with the dirty socks or else he might have grown up to become slightly warped.

As a child, John spent most of his time wandering through the Mojave Desert in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the sky, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. One of his favorite memories is watching his dad build the fuselage of Evel Kneivel’s skycycle in their garage. One of his least favorite moments was watching that skycycle fall into the Snake River. (Not his dad’s fault and he has documentation to prove it, so nyah)

As a teenager, John spent most of his time driving wherever he could in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the road, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He was the captain of the chess team, lettered in golf and band while in high school, and wasn’t beaten up anywhere near as much as one might imagine.

As an adult, John spends most of his time staring at a computer screen in an attempt to avoid people. He stares at the monitor for hours, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He has been married to his wonderful wife for sixteen years and they have three obnoxio . . . wonderful children who always behave . . . when they’re asleep.

Emo bunny minions surround John at most times. He is their imaginary friend and they look to him for guidance. At one point, they took over the world. No one noticed because they left everything exactly as it was. They gave the world back after a week because it was depressing.

The Willden Trilogy is his first endeavor into the field of writing. Other series and standalone works will be forthcoming. In addition, John has written a number of short stories that can be found at most eBook sites. He writes in the evenings and weekends whenever possible. Regrettably, the family mentioned in a previous paragraph desires food and shelter, requiring the author to possess a full time job until his writing makes him rich.

This was a fantastic ending to the trilogy, and the best of the books in the trilogy too. I look forward to reading more of the books set in the same world.

John sure can weave a story! This is one of his finest works. The characters were full of humanity and humor, completely involving the reader in their story. John has created a fascinating world and I eagerly look forward to more books involving Ryallon.

Review by: David on Dec. 16, 2012 :
This was a real treat. For me this was the best book in the trilogy. Fun characters and dialogue. Since I've read some of John's other books I was intrigued that the character Tathan from The Willden Trilogy appears in this book.

Review by: Marisa Brown on Dec. 06, 2012 :
This is John's best novel yet! It still amazes me how he can weave action and drama together so seamlessly with humor that leaves me laughing hard enough that my stomache hurts. This conclusion to the Dralin trilogy is perfect: it ties up the storyline nicely, while leaving the characters able to appear in future novels...or not, whichever they choose!

Seeing the end of Pelya's story (at this point) was bittersweet. I look forward to reading more from the world of Ryallon, and hope to see Pelya again.
