The Rootless

Rated 5.00/5 based on 6 reviews
He appeared seemingly out of nowhere. They were calling him, the Rootless, because he wasn't a member of the Tribe, although he was almost like them. He traveled alone, with no clear plan and a voice in his head that was always there, a remnant of a distant and forgotten past.

This story is set in the same universe as the Living Sword Chronicles

About Angelo Tsanatelis

Angelo (Aggelos) Tsanatelis was born in Athens, Greece on October 24th 1979. He lived for seven years in Bulgaria, where he studied Law at the University of Sofia. During his studies he traveled in Europe and Africa, undertaking 'daring expeditions that no one ever heard about, visited mysterious locations or simply searched for hidden treasures in the most unlikely of places' as he quoted himself in a interview in 2012. After he finished his studies he worked in the private sector for several years before he realized his childhood dream and became an author. His first novel already many years in the making was Origins, the 1st episode in the Living Sword Chronicles series and it was published in April of 2011. It was followed by the novelette, the Rootless set in the same universe and the sequel to Origins, the Lodge & the Tribe.

Review by: Sofie Sandey on Oct. 21, 2011 :
Excellent story, it keeps you in a guessing game, for the identity of the protagonist for a while. I would say that this is less of a short story and more of a novelette, but the author marks it clearly, as a short story and I have to respect that. A part-sequel of shorts, to the Living Sword Chronicles. I liked a lot.

Review by: Cosmin Santos on May 16, 2011 :
Nice short story, mostly I think in the fantasy category, less horror. But it is a nice read, with an interesting character as a protagonist. I enjoyed it, simple and fun.

Review by: Jason Sanders on May 13, 2011 :
This is a great story. As a fan of longer novels, this was only the fourth short story I've read since I joined, but it was by far, the best. Loved the open-ended conclusion, the secretive tone throughout, the main character. Worth the download.

Review by: Vassilios Kanavos on May 12, 2011 :
Wonderful settings, great atmosphere, and an ending that leaves you wanting more. You can almost see the bigger picture unfolding throughout the story. It was a delight to read it and I expect a sequel coming soon.

Review by: Enzo Thomas Milegan on April 30, 2011 :
Intriguing and a little rough around the edges, but I liked the cold on one hand, insane on the other, half-vampire and half whatever that was, protagonist. I think it should have been a little longer, I'm not sure 100%, exactly what happened in the end, as it appears that this is a part, of a bigger story. Good effort.

Nice short story. A little raw but intriguing enough and a quick read.
