The Drexus Tavosn Saga

A fantasy adventure on a tropical, alien world.

An esoteric journey through politics, religion and bigotry.

The personal struggle of a tortured soul, a reluctant warrior.

A vampire's tale, unlike any other.

Come, enter a green world that's not so primitive as it seems...

Book One:

"Hunting Shadows"  ~  Follow the trail of the vine-jungle Hunter, Drexus Tavosn. An outcast loner, Drex' dreams are haunted by a fire-eyed demon of long fangs and talons: a nightwalker on a planet in which the nights last for three days--Or is it the psychic manifestation of a mysterious plague, one that drives it's victims murderously insane before it kills them?

  Through prophesy, bigotry, politics and betrayal, Drex struggles to purge the world of the descending madness--if he can escape the grasp of the demon in his own soul first...
