Tales of Ashkar
Elementalists—those that have the ability to command the elements. Only recently has humanity witnessed such unfathomable power. Some believe it is a curse. That elementalists are possessed by demons. Others claim it is a gift from the deities above. It is neither. Some use it for good, helping those in need and dedicating their lives to selflessness. Others use it for power and personal gain. Neither understand what elementalism truly is. Serraemas—one of the first of human elementalists—sees the world not how it is, but how it should be. Able to manipulate the element of ice, he sets out to realize that dream. What he has yet to discover is that in trying to save the world, he might just bring about its end instead.

  • Kill the King on Aug. 19, 2017

    Kill the King by Eric Samson is exactly what you want out of a crime thriller: violence, drugs, and a main character with impossible odds. From the start it is clear that Tyler is far from a virtuous man, but neither is he a man without virtue. Eric has a good mind for crime, one that he uses to develop the underground world of organized crime where Tyler ventures into. But there's more than that. Tyler is someone you can root for, a criminal with a hard past but a criminal who still holds onto morals. And it's that flaw in his character that makes the book so thrilling. An ordinary criminal with no ethics would have made this narrative dull because all Tyler has to do for freedom is shoot a guy, but Kill the King is more complex and thrilling than that.
