Jesse Teller is a self-published fantasy author with a track record of crafting dark, twisted tales.  His books never afraid to exam the grim side of life.  And while he has written numerous stories, Jesse’s newest project, Song, is part of his Perilisc fantasy world: a richly detailed setting, ripe with legends, magic, and secrets whispered but not yet explored.  The Tales from Perilisc published so far have been standalone novels with unique story lines, but the cast of characters do overlap slightly.  And here they are!

And because it is always difficult to know the chronological order of an ongoing series, the author has been nice enough to compile a timeline for readers who prefer to experience the stories in that fashion.

As you can see Song is the last on that chronological list, the newest of the Perilisc tales, yet another dark fantasy, walking the edge been reality and insanity. And Bookwraiths is proud to announce its publication date and show off its beautiful cover!

Song: Book One of The Manhunters
Releases October 5, 2017

Some of the darkest minds in Perilisc attacked Mending Keep, releasing all its prisoners. Despite his strained relationship with the crown, Rayph Ivoryfist calls old friends to his aid in a subversive attempt to protect King Nardoc and thwart terrorist plots to ruin the Festival of Blossoms. But someone else is targeting Rayph, and even his fellow Manhunters might not be enough to save him. 

Reviews of the Tales of Perilisc:

Jesse Teller is a new voice in Grimdark fantasy, and if you like your books dark and bloody as hell, then he might as well be your new favorite author.”
—Peter Tr,

Jesse Teller is a very strong author who boldly builds the world he has created with strong themes and no apologies.”
—Dianne Bylo, Tome Tender Book Blog

jesse tellerAUTHOR INFO:  Jesse Teller fell in love with fantasy when he was five years old and played his first game of Dungeons & Dragons. The game gave him the ability to create stories and characters from a young age. He started consuming fantasy in every form and, by nine, was obsessed with the genre. As a young adult, he knew he wanted to make his life about fantasy. From exploring the relationship between man and woman, to studying the qualities of a leader or a tyrant, Jesse Teller uses his stories and settings to study real-world themes and issues.

He lives with his supportive wife, Rebekah, and his two inspiring children, Rayph and Tobin.

    Looks a little too light for ‘grimdark’.
