Talon: The Windwalker Archive: Book 1 by Michael James Ploof

indie ebook cover

From best-selling author Michael James Ploof comes the epic debut of an exhilarating new fantasy adventure series.

TALON: Book 1 of the Windwalker Archive follows the early years of a unique boy, a fifteen year old runt living on the barbarian island of Volnoss. Born premature during the frozen plaque that took his mother, shunned by his father, and raised by his grandmother, Talon has always felt like he doesn't belong.

For years he dreams of growing big and strong like the giants that surround him. But as the day of measure draws near, he begins to realize that he will never be named a Vald, and will be cast to the village of the Skomm to live a life of slavery.

Barely surviving the beating that follows his failure to meet the measure, Talon is banished to the village of misfits. There he finds friends in the most unlikely of places, and begins to hope he might find some happiness as a Skomm.

As Talon tries to settle into his life in the slave village he is challenged at every turn. The Vaka overseers have it in for him, as does the Chiefson of Timber Wolf Tribe. The Kelda Agaeti is drawing near, called by the Skomm the night of dying, when seven warriors from neighboring tribes win the right to go on a bloody rampage through the village.

After barely surviving a random attack by drunken Vald that left nearly a dozen dead, Talon and his friends decide that they must somehow escape the island. For Chiefson Fylkin has vowed to kill him first on the night of dying.

What follows is a fast-paced race against time, an underdog story wrought with action and adventure, rich with magic, culture, friendship and lore.

Set two hundred years before the events of Whill of Agora, TALON, Book #1 of the Windwalker Archive, reveals the origins of Dirk Blackthorn’s spirit wolf, Chief. Fans of the Legends of Agora books will be introduced to unforgettable new characters, and revisit a few old friends.

Although Talon takes place chronologically before Whill of Agora, it can be read before or after as a standalone series.

About The Author...

indie author

Michael James Ploof

      

Michael was born during a blizzard in the late 70's. He grew up in the Northern NY Boonies. Luckily he had no cable TV, but he did possess the power to turn an ordinary stick into anything imaginable. He spent his first decade of life fighting monsters, aliens, and Sith lords. Having been unsuccessfully taught how to sit down, shut up, get in line, and raise his hand to pee, he quit school the first day of his senior year of high school. Along with his band members and girlfriend, Michael took a greyhound bus to California, something he had always dreamed of doing. After nine months and many crazy experiences and soup kitchens later, he and his girlfriend returned to NY with a baby on the way. Joining the workforce with blue hair and no education that mattered to the "real world trolls" he began to work toward supporting his new family. Three years later the family grew with the addition of a baby girl. Michael spent 14 years at a Casino being the best poker dealer in NY, and later as the best boss in the world. (Hey man, I'm just repeating what they say). He has recently quit his day job to focus on writing full-time. Michael is still married to his high school sweetheart. His hobbies include reading, cooking, gardening, researching the spiritual and mental enslavement of his fellow humans, working out, playing guitar, bass, and drums. He is patiently waiting for the world to take the red pill. Above all else, Michael enjoys beating the odds.
