Meet Erik Ashendale: wizard and monster hunter extraordinaire.

Cursed from birth with extraordinary healing abilities, at the cost of actual use of magic, Erik rids the city from all that goes bump in the night, sometimes with the help of his demonic talking cat.

But now Erik is in for the fight of his life. Seven ancient sources of power have been corrupted and taken the form of demons, the Seven Deadly Sins. One of them, Lust, is after a young succubus and Erik finds himself having to protect her.
To make matters worse, the angels have strong-armed their way into our plane, hunting for this mega demon.

How can one man survive in a struggle against gods and the primordial forces of the universe?
The fate of the world hangs in the balance.

Interview with the Author

Q - What is the Legacy Series?
A - The Legacy Series is an Urban Fantasy novel series about the paranormal adventures of Erik, with frequent appearances of his twin sister Gil, their demon familiars Amaymon and Mephisto, as well a host of other characters, each taken from folklore and mythology.

Throughout the novels Erik usually tries to solve a mystery (usually bloody and rife with magic), all the while stopping the rising of the Seven Deadly Sins from taking power, or some other magical being trying to do something terrible.

Q - Is there a particular order in which to read the books?
A - The series is planned for 13 books but each novel has its own plot line that starts and finishes within that book. So a reader can grab book 2 and still follow onto book 3 and so on, even if they missed out of book 1.

Of course, each book does leave clues for the following stories, and even in this one, book 1, I planted seeds for stories yet to come.

So far the best way to read the Legacy series is as follows:
- Firstborn (book 1)
- Birthright (book 2)
- Short story collection (only available through my mailing list - see above for a link or a URL to get it for free)

Q - What makes this series so unique?
A - It's a mixture of things actually. For one thing, it follows the wizard detective trope, so it can get a little hard boiled. But at the same time, I am unable to write without including some terrible jokes or one liners, so there will be a lot of humor within the dialogue. Also, the action. There is no shortage of magical sword fights, fireballs being thrown around, and I think in this one we break a ship - as in, one of those giant cruise liners.

The elements that make this series what it is range from mythology, folklore, an unhealthy amount of anime and manga (which explains some of the asian mythology elements) as well as a life time of being a geek.

Q - Where is the best place to get all the books in the series?
A - Well, Amazon of course...

Actually, all my books are available in a variety of online bookstores, but the best way to find out about the current books AND new releases, is through my mailing list, which can be accessed by pasting this url on your browser:

Also, did I mention you get free books just for signing up?

Thanks for reading!
