Without being biased, Tellest is pretty great! Over the last few years, Michael DeAngelo, the main author and creator of Tellest, has not only improved his craft tenfold, but has grown his world out beyond the initial characters introduced years ago. He even has a small stable of writers that help expand his world. I could go on and on about how Tellest started, but you can listen to the interview he did on Everything is Awesome to get the details from the man himself. His first novel, The Bindings of Fate, is the first story told that introduces us to the world of Tellest.
The realm of Tellest is filled with bloodlust, greed and violence. Long has the world been thrust into turmoil, driven by the insatiable urge of man’s conquest, and whatever rewards can be earned from the end of a blade. Spells and rituals meet with bow and sword in an endless battle that will see those who are strong enough standing atop thsoe that have fallen.
Kaos Kreegan is a man haunted by memories of the past. To survive in the harsh world that evolves around him, he needs to rely on his wits and his friends to bring evil to justice, and avenge the wrongs that have been done to him. Along the way, he will discover that Tellest carries many surprises – and so does he.
When his parents are murdered at the hands of a dark power, Kaos determines to find the evil and snuff it out. But he soon learns that sinister forces from the north are setting to bear down on the city that he calls home. In this novel of epic fantasy, it is up to he and his allies to make a stand, no matter the cost.
