Todd Fahnestock, the Action-Man of Fantasy

Todd LOVES writing epic fantasy that keeps you reading late into the night. After all, magic and heroes and sword fights should be exciting.

When he’s not writing another epic fantasy series, Todd doesn’t sit still for long. He runs, teaches Taekwondo, wrestles his Weimaraner (Galahad), and travels the country meeting fans. In the rare quiet moments, Todd watches The Floor is Lava with his wife, swaps philosophy with his teenage son, and watches the latest horror movie in quiet terror with his teenage daughter.

Now a Complete Series!

A mage in search of the truth.
A princess who will stop at nothing to hide it.
A prophecy that binds them both to the destruction of an empire.

Within the Thiaran Empire, citizens put on jeweled masks and turn away from those who are taken. As long as one child is sacrificed each month to the Slinks and nobody interferes, their society will thrive. But seventeen-year-old Grei’s mind is alive with treason, and he plunges into the heart of a prophecy that will drive the Slinks back to their fiery dimension. All he must do is travel to the capital city and sacrifice one last innocent. As Grei wrestles with the prophecy and battles those who would kill him, he hurtles toward his final decision: save the empire, or save his own soul.
