The Fate of Legends Series
The Fate of Legends series is a contemporary adult epic fantasy series set in a world where everything about a person - their looks, their personality, their skills - is contagious. In a world where you can absorb the traits and skills of history's most powerful men and women, a hunter of Legends will become the most powerful of all!
Book 1 - Hunter of Legends
When Hunter’s mother vanishes through an ancient portal while on an archaeological expedition, Hunter risks everything to go after her and bring her back…and finds himself transported to a mysterious kingdom. A kingdom ruled by a Legend called Tykus, a long-dead king who’s all-powerful will allows him to resurrect himself by possessing the bodies of weaker-willed men.
Hunter soon realizes that he too possesses a powerful will…one that can change anyone around him, making them more like him. And he has the power to absorb the skills of others merely through contact with their possessions. These abilities make Hunter a threat to King Tykus…and he soon realizes that everyone around him is conspiring against him, trying to neutralize him before he realizes the true extent of his power!
Now Hunter must use his incredible abilities to become a master swordsman, so that he can find his mother and return to Earth. If he fails, King Tykus will surely kill him…or worse, possess his body and destroy his soul!

Torn from his home on Earth by an unknown power, Kyle finds himself stranded on a strange world. A world where magical engineers called Runics have created the Empire, the greatest civilization ever known.
Taken under the wing of a wealthy politician named Kalibar, Kyle is thrust into a dark conspiracy to overthrow the Empire...and murder Kalibar. Hunted by a sadistic undead overlord called the Dead Man, Kyle must learn to master the power of magical runes to keep Kalibar alive...and to save Ariana, a brave, mysterious girl whose powers the Dead Man plans to exploit.
