The Lost Tales of Power is a sci-fi fantasy cross over series written by Vincent Trigili. Vincent is a graduate student at Liberty University, and presently holds undergraduate degrees in Math and Computer Science. Currently, he is working as a senior software developer at Liberty University.
Vincent owns and runs the highly popular astronomy forums, Our Dark Skies, and also maintains the associated Facebook page. He has published several astronomy journals, calendars, blog articles, poetry, and photo books over the years and now turns his hand to fiction.
The worlds described in The Lost Tales of Power series were born out of Vincent’s long history of creating role playing games in the old pen and paper tradition. He uses the rich history of those worlds he created to imagine an entirely new world for this series. Vincent uses his exposure and history with science and technology to keep the stories in the realm of the possible while balancing that with an eye for fantasy.
The early books in the series take place in a futuristic universe that has recently been discovered by a medieval realm; later books in the series will take place in either realm, or perhaps a realm that has yet to be discovered.
All of the books are intended to be roughly equivalent to the movie rating PG. This means any teenager or adult should be comfortable reading them, but some of the material, themes and descriptions may be unsuitable for smaller children. Parents are advised to read the books themselves before deciding if their child should be exposed to the contents of the novels.

You can check out my reviews of each individual book for how I felt about them. I ended up with The First Quartet instead of Resurgence of Ancient Darkness (Lost Tales of Power) (happy mistake, that) and am so grateful. It'd been a while since I'd read the first three, so going through all of them before starting in on RoAD (that's a good acronym) was a necessity anyways. The author's comments before each book really helped refresh the overall plot in my mind, plus gave good insight into his thought process and how he was growing and adapting as a writer. The drawings and journal at the end adds a bit of spice and something to keep my thoughts churning over what might happen while we wait for volume 5. The "interview" felt a little forced (was he interviewing himself?) but no harm done. :)
