Darkness Rising- Secrets is the third book in the original epic fantasy series that reviewers are describing as 'epic and spellbinding.' It is a must read for fantasy fans the world over. About the series... "Ross M. Kitson has built a complex and convincing world here. Frankly, I wouldn't recommend just picking up just the first book, or even the first two books. Get all three, because you'll be chain-reading them." D Brzeski (British Fantasy Society) "Totally gripping... I was completely absorbed and loved reading every minute of it." Amazon review "Each page is a new rush of tension, mystery, and adrenaline." Amazon review "Richly imagined, well written and thoroughly absorbing." Amazon review
Every author tells you that they've written since they were a child and i suppose I'm no exception. But i think we were all readers first and writers second. I really started getting into writing around twelve, inspired by Dr Who books, Tolkien and an evolving interest in Role Playing Games.
My creative efforts then got hijacked by my gaming and everything I wrote related to role playing. Then came along a career, in medicine, and a family, and writing sort of took a back seat.
So four years ago a friend threw me a challenge. I'd been scribbling some stuff about old DnD characters and reading more and more fantasy books. He said why not create something new, something from scratch. Create something thats a mix of fun, action, drama, humour, nothing too dark but nothing too light. And off I went.
The end product is the Prism Trilogy, of which book 1- Dreams of Darkness Rising is now released. I'd initially self-pub'd it but now its released by Fantasy Island Books. Print edition is on the way.
The series is virtually complete and I've also got several short stories as well as a blog and website on the go. All that and a family and a career! Thank God for the power of red wine.
Take a browse around the books, stories and blogs. If you like your fantasy with strong enjoyable characters and with a healthy dose of action and fun then you'll not be disappointed.
