Roc Isle: The Descent is a heroic fantasy novel based on a tale of revenge and destiny.

It is now Year One, foretold to be the final year before The End of Roc Isle.

In the North, Lord Azure of the Azure-Cloud Clan vows revenge on those responsible for ordering the assassination of his parents. Lord Azure will invade the South in reprisal, and to rid the land of the infidel. But first he needs to raise an army to his banner, which will prove difficult. The Azure-Cloud Clan is divided: the Azure-Knights of Crag Rock refuse to owe him their allegiance. In spite of this, Lord Azure is the greatest warrior of his clan, and his search for redemption and vengeance will not be stopped until Roc Isle answers to him.

In the South, Ankah is a Knight Prentice. Frustrated that he is yet to be ordained, he wonders what his destiny is and why it is he wants to fight. He is the strongest, fastest, and most determined of swordsmen.

Only a titanic clash between clans and a monstrous release of sorcery and swords will reveal the truth. This is The Descent!

About the Author

Alex James is a writer based in Leeds, United Kingdom, who likes writing allegories of the human condition using science fiction and fantasy. He feels his personal experience of autism makes him suitable, qualified even, to write these types of stories. As a twist on the real difficulties faced by people with autism there are heroic themes in his writing. Strengths and weaknesses are a big part of having autism: those often-intellectual superpowers people with autism are presumed to have and on the other side the difficulties; there is the knowledge and experience of having lived and learned with autism, and also the ignorance of living on the ‘wrong planet’.

His readers are people who want to read something that will make them think or who are looking for something a little different from the usual science fiction and fantasy fare.
