After a lifetime of abuse at the hands of the murderous Vald, Talon Windwalker is finally free. He sets out across the sea in search of Akkeri, with his spirit wolf Chief at his side. Talon may have escaped the injustices of the barbarian island, but he cannot escape what he is-a Skomm runaway. Hunted, he must thwart his pursuers while searching for his lost love. After joining up with a group of fellow runaways wanted for killing their master's guard, Talon discovers clues to Akkeri's whereabouts. His quest leads him across the foreign landscape of Agora, and onto a slave ship holding hundreds of his fellow Skomm. With Chief at his side, and the elven ring Kyrr, Talon finally has the power to destroy his oppressors. But power comes at great cost. The lure of his magical trinkets gains him the attention of those who would take it for themselves. He begins to realize that with such power, he has a responsibility to help his oppressed people. However, in doing so, he may lose the only lead he has to finding Akkeri. Talon Windwalker wants only a quiet life-if only he could escape the shadow of his own legend. Set two hundred years before the events of Whill of Agora, TALON, Book #1 of the Windwalker Archive, reveals the origins of Dirk Blackthorn's spirit wolf, Chief. The Windwalker Archive is a coming of age tale rich with magic, culture, friendship and lore. It is a fast-paced race against time; an underdog story wrought with action and adventure. Fans of the Legends of Agora books will be introduced to unforgettable new characters, and revisit a few old friends. Although Talon takes place chronologically before Whill of Agora, it can be read before or after.

From USA Today bestselling author Michael James Ploof comes the epic debut of an exhilarating new fantasy adventure series. TALON: Book 1 of the Windwalker Archive follows the early years of a unique boy, a fifteen year old runt living on the barbarian island of Volnoss. Born premature during the frozen plaque that took his mother, shunned by his father, and raised by his grandmother, Talon has always felt like he doesn't belong. For years he dreams of growing big and strong like the giants that surround him. But as the day of measure draws near, he begins to realize that he will never be named a Vald, and will be cast to the village of the Skomm to live a life of slavery. Barely surviving the beating that follows his failure to meet the measure, Talon is banished to the village of misfits. There he finds friends in the most unlikely of places, and begins to hope he might find some happiness as a Skomm. As Talon tries to settle into his life in the slave village he is challenged at every turn. The Vaka overseers have it in for him, as does the Chiefson of Timber Wolf Tribe. The Kelda Agaeti is drawing near, called by the Skomm the night of dying, when seven warriors from neighboring tribes win the right to go on a bloody rampage through the village. After barely surviving a random attack by drunken Vald that left nearly a dozen dead, Talon and his friends decide that they must somehow escape the island. For Chiefson Fylkin has vowed to kill him first on the night of dying. What follows is a fast-paced race against time, an underdog story wrought with action and adventure, rich with magic, culture, friendship and lore.

A new series from the USA TODAY Bestselling author of Whill of Agora. In his first week as a wizard, Orion Rezner faces demons, witches, possessed mothers, and road warriors. Thank god beer survived the Apocalypse. Seven years have passed since the Culling of 2033 which killed most of the world's population. Vampires, werewolves, and demons have begun to emerge from the shadows, and they are hungry. Boston, one of the last vestiges of humanity, is protected by a spell shield created by the Wizard Council. The shield is the only thing keeping the city safe. Having studied the Craft for two years at Harvard Witchcraft and Wizardry, Orion Rezner embarks on his final rite of passage. But his first mission outside the city walls forces him to make choices he wasn’t prepared for. Narrowly avoiding possession by an ancient demon, he learns of a plot to destroy the spell shield and expose its survivors to the horrors outside. Suspected by the wizard council of having been compromised by the encounter, Orion is unable to convince them of the danger. With the help of his closest friends, Orion sets out on a desperate quest to thwart the demon's plan any way he can. Following is the official OnlineBookClub.org review of "Afterworld" by Michael James Ploof. Afterworld: The Orion Rezner Chronicles, Book 1, by Michael James Ploof, is a Science Fiction novel which takes place in a post-Apocalyptic world. The populace has been severely diminished by a deadly virus, and life as the world knew it has changed. Ploof does a great job of bringing the characters to life for his audience. This book is an action packed novel full of popular characters such as Wizards, Witches, Demons, Sub/Super-humans, and other beings. It is evident the author’s target audience are young adults whom I believe will certainly identify with his style of writing. Ploof’s imagination takes the reader along for a very adventurous ride. His cast of characters are colorful and all possess their own individual quirks (e.g. the main character, a wacky apprentice Wizard, has a sidekick chimpanzee named Dude, and the ghost of Benjamin Franklin follows him around). Everyone lends a healthy dose of comic relief to this story. In addition to the laughs, and nail biting suspense, heroism reigns supreme here. It is evident in this story the author enjoys and believes in what he writes. The author employs a strong use of Hyperbole (e.g. “For the two years of my apprenticeship he was colder than a Russian winter and less forgiving than a cheap vodka hangover.”). I found these phrases thoroughly entertaining. In addition, they helped keep the storyline light and endeared you to the characters even more. Ploofs’s humor and wit are refreshing. Afterworld takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride of emotion (fear, joy, horror, hope, etc.). Ploof’s cast of youthful heroes and heroines are lovable and quick witted. I found myself rooting for the heroes and heckling the villainous monsters. You will find these characters are people you can identify with. Granted, this is a fictional story, but I still felt a kinship to the main characters and their noble sense of right and wrong. Science Fiction is one of my favorite genres. I feel the author has a great feel for it, and is certainly gearing up to be a force in this field. I rated this book 4 out of 4 stars. Even though I think the author’s target audience is a younger generation than I, it was still an enjoyable read for me. The story has its fair share of fun, surprise twists and humor. I thoroughly enjoyed Benjamin Franklin’s quotes throughout the book. Ploof’s use of the inventor’s quotes lend strength to Afterworld’s humor in its timing. After reading this book, I would gladly add this author to my list of must read Science Fiction/ Fantasy literature in the future.

Murland Kadabra has always dreamed of becoming a great wizard. However, at age 19, the young apprentice has yet to successfully cast a single spell. He has been reduced to grounds keeper of Abra Tower, and has become the laughing stock of the wizarding school. But when the Most High Wizard Kazimir chooses him to be one of the five Champions of the Dragon, Murland’s life changes forever. He soon finds himself traveling through the wilds with four unlikely companions, including an alcoholic knight, a gay elf prince, a dwarf with humanism, and an obese ogre. Prophecy dictates that these champions must march west to the shadowy peak of Bad Mountain, where they are destined to do battle with the dreaded dragon of legend, Drak’Noir. But what few people know, is that the prophecy is not altogether true. For it is not five champions who Kazimir chooses, but five fools. They are not meant to defeat the dragon, but to feed her. To change their fate, the Champions of the Dragon must not only overcome their enemies, but also themselves. Champions of the Dragon, Book 1 of Epic Fallacy, is a satirical high-adventure romp through the Fantasy genre in the tradition of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series.

From USA TODAY Bestselling author Michael James Ploof. Before Dirk Blackthorn became known as one of the deadliest assassins in the four kingdoms, he spent his childhood as a street urchin, fighting for survival in the shadowy streets and back alleys of Agora’s toughest cities. For ten long years young Dirk has followed his drunken father from one city to another, always having to cheat and steal for his next meal, and never knowing what the future might hold. A magician turned con artist, Dirk’s father Thad has taught him everything he knows. After being driven out of just about every southern city, they have come to Kell-Torey in search of a new beginning. With winter on its way, and all but a rusty coin spent on his father’s drinking, Dirk must make full use of his skills if they are to survive the harsh northern cold. As Thad descends deeper into his drunken delirium, Dirk becomes determined to make a name for himself in the city’s criminal underworld. After a run-in with a group of local hooligans, Dirk learns of a notorious master thief called Akleous Aaronson, whose incredible feats seem to be nothing more than myth and legend. Still, Dirk is intrigued, and begins to search out the mysterious man. If he can somehow find the master thief and join his notorious crew, Dirk just might be able to find some semblance of a normal life, and save his father from the unforgiving streets. Far across the Great Sea, the daughter of the dark elf Eadon stands upon the threshold of discovery. Krentz has always known that she was different from other dark elves. When she learns of a portal in the catacombs of her father’s palace, she cannot resist the lure of freedom, and ventures through it, to the fabled land of Agora. But one does not so easily betray the father of the dark elves. Stripped of her weapons and energy crystals, Krentz must somehow thwart her powerful pursuers as she maneuvers through the strange new land. Prophetic dreams haunt her, and she soon begins to doubt her bold decision to leave her homeland. After a bloody encounter with her father’s vicious draggard which leaves many humans dead, Krentz begins to believe that she is doomed to live the lonely life of a cursed runaway. After barely escaping the draggard, Krentz sets out in search of the only thing that might turn the tide in her struggle—an elven energy crystal. What she discovers along the way will shape her in ways that she never imagined, and lead her to wonders that she had never thought possible. Destined for love, doomed by fate, Dirk and Krentz must fight for a place in an ever changing and often hostile world of magic, deception, and danger. Featuring two of Legends of Agora’s most beloved characters, Blackthorn Rising is a fast-paced coming of age tale wrought with sword and sorcery, it is a story of failure and triumph, and a testament to the unrelenting spirit of defiance and adventure within us all.
