Along my reading journey, I’ve made a conscious decision to not only read the fantasy novels on the shelves at my local Barnes and Nobles bookstore but to also try self-published, or indie, fantasy as often as I can.
Now, I know several of you are snickering in the background or rolling your eyes at my idiot crusade to bring a few good indie fantasy works to light. And believe me, I understand why you’d do that. Several years into this, I have to admit that I’ve probably stopped reading more indie faire than I’ve finished. But those that did keep my attention were novels which I feel were — or had the potential to be — above average fantasy novels, and I’d like to occasionally share those few with you in the hope that other people might also discover them.
So without any further talking, I’d like to introduce you to the Legends of Windemere series by Charles Yallowitz, which I was happy to discover in 2015. Beginning of a Hero was a good start to the tale, and Mr. Yallowitz has only expanded it since, recently publishing the seventh installment in the ongoing series. So take a look.
The final champion stirs and reaches out to any who can hear her voice. Yet all who heed her call will disappear into the misty fugue
Awakening their new ally is only the beginning as Luke, Nyx, and their friends head south to the desert city of Bor’daruk. Hunting for another temple once used to seal Baron Kernaghan, they are unaware that the game of destiny has changed. Out for blood and pain, Stephen is determined to make Luke wish he’d never set out to become a hero.
By the time the sun sets on Bor’daruk, minds will be shattered and the champions’ lives will be changed forever.
About the Author:
Charles Yallowitz was born and raised on Long Island, NY, but he has spent most of his life wandering his own imagination in a blissful haze. Occasionally, he would return from this world for the necessities such as food, showers, and Saturday morning cartoons. One day he returned from his imagination and decided he would share his stories with the world. After his wife decided that she was tired of hearing the same stories repeatedly, she convinced him that it would make more sense to follow his dream of being a fantasy author. So, locked within the house under orders to shut up and get to work, Charles brings you Legends of Windemere. He looks forward to sharing all of his stories with you and his wife is happy he finally has someone else to play with.
