"Epic. Fast. Heroic. The Rogue Elf series is classic epic fantasy with none of the fluff. ?????"
War calls the elves of Urlas to battle. But Kealin, a young half-elf training to be a Sacred Blade, and his three siblings, are forbidden to go. They are not ready, or so they're told. But Kealin's lineage has a dark secret and the High Council of Urlas fears what he may become...
Kealin is about to learn that secret and in the cataclysm emerging, Urlas will wish they had embraced it.
When the soothsayer of Urlas tells Kealin that doom comes for all that left for the war, he and his siblings set off on what may be a one-way journey to the edge of the world. Darkness is upon them and a specter that dwells between the borders of the living realms has been waiting for them.
The Rogue Elf awakens... but is it too late to save those he loves?
A brave group of companions await you:
Kealin- a defiant half-blood that has little care of the purist High Elves and their beliefs. Eager, skilled, and sometimes a bit cocky, he fights with furious zeal to protect those he cares about.
Alri- The only female elf in the group. Her powers are far beyond her brothers. As a potent magic-user training under the best of the arcane masters, she knows much about her deadly art but necromancy is her natural gift. With her, a power unlike that taught in her homeland is just within her grasp yet she doesn't realize it yet.
Taslun- A son after his father's image. Strong, loyal to Urlas, and at 800 years old nearly ready to go before the High Council and be christened as a Blade of Urlas. He is the last anyone expects to become defiant. As the oldest sibling, he naturally desires to look after the young ones. They'll need his skills if they are all to survive.
Calak- The youngest of the males and with equal qualities of being cocky and honorable. While he is capable with a sword, his true gift is in his love of astrology, history, and ancient knowledge. Where he lacks in fighting ability he makes up for what his more 'violence-centric' brothers see as 'boring'.
Valrin- Not an elf but also not a normal human. However, the greatest mystery to the half-elves is his level of knowledge of the vast Glacial Seas and what he seems to know but not say about their quest. A loyal companion that has known of the elven lands and the coming darkness on the seas far before the half-elves left their home, he is the key to much to come. He commands the Aela Sunrise, a not-so-simple sailing vessel crafted by the ancient Sea Peoples of the North.
PRAISE FOR HALF-BLOODS RISING:
"Half-Bloods Rising is the perfect start to the best series since R.A. Salvatore created the famous Drizzt Do'Urden series. Drizzt Do'Urden meet Kealin, the Rogue Elf of Urlas. Adventure, excitement, companions (friendships), hidden powers, unknown/unclear journeys, etc. create a story/series that draws you in and keeps you on the edge of your seat." Aaron, Amazon Reviewer ?????
"A well written story with plenty of action, magic, and twists and turns. I was shocked and amazed at the same time. Can't wait to read the next book in the series. Great job!" Barbara, Amazon Reviewer ?????
This is the first time I have read anything from J. T. Williams and I quite enjoyed myself." Shivani, Amazon Reviewer ?????
