Meet the Author

John H. Carroll was the youngest of seven children and was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1970 where he was kept in a dresser drawer with the clean socks. Luckily, he wasn’t kept with the dirty socks or else he might have grown up to become slightly warped.As a child, John spent most of his time wandering through the Mojave Desert in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the sky, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. One of his favorite memories is watching his dad build the fuselage of Evel Kneivel’s skycycle in their garage. One of his least favorite moments was watching that skycycle fall into the Snake River. (Not his dad’s fault and he has documentation to prove it, so nyah)As a teenager, John spent most of his time driving wherever he could in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the road, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He was the captain of the chess team, lettered in golf and band while in high school, and wasn’t beaten up anywhere near as much as one might imagine.As an adult, John spends most of his time staring at a computer screen in an attempt to avoid people. He stares at the monitor for hours, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He has been married to his wonderful wife for sixteen years and they have three obnoxio . . . wonderful children who always behave . . . when they’re asleep.Emo bunny minions surround John at most times. He is their imaginary friend and they look to him for guidance. At one point, they took over the world. No one noticed because they left everything exactly as it was. They gave the world back after a week because it was depressing.The Willden Trilogy is his first endeavor into the field of writing. Other series and standalone works will be forthcoming. In addition, John has written a number of short stories that can be found at most eBook sites. He writes in the evenings and weekends whenever possible. Regrettably, the family mentioned in a previous paragraph desires food and shelter, requiring the author to possess a full time job until his writing makes him rich.

    4.5 stars! Ryallon is a vast world full of magic and strange cre

    4.5 stars! Ryallon is a vast world full of magic and strange creatures. War torn, but this book doesn't center on this, in fact you see very little of it. Instead this story centers on Tathan and his cousin Liselle. Tathan returns home after being gone for 14 years doing heaven knows what, but he comes home haunted by mysterious things in his past, and carries a dark sword that he won't allow out of his sight. After their family is murdered by marauding warriors, Tathan and his cousin Liselle journey north looking for a safe place. Along the way, they meet up with Sir Danth and Vevin, strange beings in their own right. After they meet up with some druids, they take up a quest to find out more about a strange new race of beings called the Rojuun.

    This book is fast paced with lots of action, laugh out loud minutes, and a small romance in the beginnings as you are introduced to characters that you have never heard of. What I love about this story is that it is clean (no swearing or sex), and that the world is not some strange other world that you have to try and learn new words, so it is easy to picture this world in your imagination. The only thing I did not like about it is that it kept too many mysteries about Tathan's past. Why does he jump at shadows all the time? Who is he hiding from, and what is so special about his sword? It also doesn't end with a true ending, but leaves a cliffhanger at the end making you need to buy more of the series in order to get more of the story. But since this world is so well crafted, and the characters so engaging, I am definitely going to be looking for more of this world and series.

    One of the best books I have read in a long time.

    Its a story with four main characters who become great friends during their travles. I got hooked on the book early on. If you like stories about travelers on a quests full of magic and sward play this is for you.

    Great start to the series...

    Only glaring issue is the use of "nomming". But hey, that's just me, and still highly recommend the series!

    I have really enjoyed the first book in the trilogy and have already started the second. I love the characters and the way they are developed. It has an interesting story line that has kept my attention throughout the book.
