HOUSE OF FALLING RAIN

WITH THE PARAGON’S TALE AT AN END, THE EYES OF ODYSSIUM BEGINS…

Something is killing Salla Saar. Ever since using the power of the Eyes of the One locked within him to eliminate the threat of Gargazant Ikahn at Tempusalist, the attacks have come, powerful and acute. Sometimes, he walks away with little more than a blackout. Other times, it is as though there is a force inside determined to break him apart a piece at a time, leaving him wishing for the pain, the uncertainty—for simply everything to end. These attacks have something to do with the Eyes of the One—he is convinced of that—but why has their power turned on him now?

After a near-fatal episode, Salla awakens in the custody of the Majdi Order, the peace-keeping sect that has made it their mission to capture him in order to seal away the power of the Eyes. His fate has been decided, it seems: he is declared too dangerous to walk free. Even if he manages to survive these violent fractures of his mind and body, he might never set foot outside the walls of a prison again.

Once locked away in the decrepit bowels of a retraining facility for wayward men and women of the Order called the House of Falling Rain, Salla finds a glimmer of hope in the darkness of this place. There are Majdi on the inside working in secret to halt the forces within intent on destroying him. But there is something else inside these old corridors with them, something filled with a dark and malevolent purpose…

THE 13th PARAGON Part I: SCRAPPER

Read more

Six years ago, Salla Saar never would have imagined himself the captain of a scrapping vessel—another shark in the predatory waters of the Odyssan Archipelago. Out on the endless blue aboard the Mayla Rose, Salla has found a new life far away from the voices of the past that chased him out here. Although his crew’s latest job offer seems to lack the spark of excitement they’re used to, they take it.

The job: Transport a pair of representatives of a shadow syndicate called Gargazant Ikahn to a clandestine meeting—no questions asked.

For Kitayne, Salla’s partner in both business and other aspects of life, curiosity is a compelling thing, and playing it safe isn’t in the cards. What she uncovers puts the crew of the Rose in deeper water than any into which they’ve ventured —these men intend to kidnap the Gran Senji of the Majdi Order, the spiritual leader of the ruling body of the entire island chain. For Salla and other members of his crew, the revelation becomes a turning point. Do they look the other way and finish the job, or do the right thing? And is the abduction of the Gran Senji the syndicate’s endgame, or is he only one step toward a goal so far-reaching and destructive it could send tremors through the whole of the world?
SCRAPPER is the first part of Salla’s journey down the treacherous road to redemption.

THE 13th PARAGON Part II: FROM ASHES OF EMPIRES

Read more

Betrayed by Kitayne and dropped over the side of the Mayla Rose to die, Salla is now taking the first uneasy steps back into the life he had abandoned. After rejoining his former partner-turned-famous explorer, Natke Orino, the two have discovered the truth behind Gargazant Ikahn’s plans. The abduction of the Gran Senji was not for ransom. It was for him to act as a compass to lead the syndicate’s leader, Cron-jearre, to the wellspring of the Majdi’s powers—Tempusalist, a lost city from a bygone age. With the power concealed there, Cron-jearre’s syndicate will become an army, one capable of taking back his fallen empire, and thus reclaiming his title of the Thirteenth Paragon.

To stop him and set right the wrongs in which Salla himself had taken part, he and Natke must find and recover the Eyes of the One, artifacts capable of locating the Majdi city. But reaching the talismans is a harrowing ordeal in itself. Hidden in a cavern at the bottom of a primordial jungle, protected by creatures and ancient mystical wards, the Eyes were never meant to be found again.

All the while, Kitayne and the crew of the Mayla Rose are running for their lives, and the Majdi’s mission to rescue the Gran Senji is closing in fast. These disparate threads converge in FROM ASHES OF EMPIRES, the explosive conclusion of THE 13th PARAGON saga.
