DEMONS & THIEVES
A thief in search of his destiny.
A man in search of his son.
The Messiah fated to meet them both.
Demons & Thieves is a fast-paced, riveting tale of demonic powers that bring destruction, of unconditional love that brings restoration, and of man’s ultimate choice toward one or the other. In this brilliantly crafted historical novel, master storyteller, Brae Wyckoff, weaves together the account of the two thieves on the cross and the Gerasene demoniacs in an action-packed, epic adventure that progresses across a span of twenty years against the backdrop of ancient Israel.
From the first page, Wyckoff captivates us with vivid characters brought to life as he carefully peels back layer upon layer to reveal raw emotion and the fragility of human existence. Readers will be deeply moved and completely enthralled by the two brothers caught in a cycle of loss and tragedy, the father racing against time to restore relationship, the loyal friend who will not walk away, and the Messiah who encounters each one.
This hauntingly powerful novel will inspire readers to look deeper than what can be seen on the surface and to recognize that behind every person is a story that may surprise us. What influences one’s behaviors and decisions? What determines one’s destiny? For Nestor and Philos, Dismas and Gestas, the answers await in Demons & Thieves.
THE HORN KING SERIES
Brae Wyckoff's books are being compared to JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis. His storytelling ability shows within his novels and his characters are deeply developed to enhance all your senses when you enter his beautiful world of Ruauck-El.
The Orb of Truth
In the hundreds of years since the Holy City disappeared, darkness has fallen over the land. Human kingdoms have seized control of the realm, scattering the other races into hiding.
Bridazak, a skilled thief, and his friends, a Dwarf and a fellow Ordakian, have dared to remain within the human communities and live relatively quiet lives, until they discover a mysterious, magical artifact. The three friends are thrust into an adventure that will challenge their faith, their purpose, and their destiny as they chase a forgotten and lost prophecy across the realm of Ruauck-El, where they hope to discover the origins of the strange item and their place in its history.
An ancient, unknown enemy threatens the completion of their journey at every turn. Bridazak is about to face the biggest adventure of his life, one that may change the known realm, and answer the questions he has carried all his life. Will they unlock the truth?
The Dragon God
As the heroes of Ruauck-El emerged triumphantly in The Orb of Truth, the first book in the Horn King series, they could not have imagined that an even greater evil still lay ahead of them.
Raina has discovered a new threat to the realm, and teleported King El'Korr - against his wishes - to the West Horn King's capital city, Tuskabar, in hopes of thwarting an evil Mystic's plan to acquire the five dragon stones. Each relic harbors an ancient dragon spirit, and, if combined, would unleash a multi-headed deity beyond imagination, to begin a reign of terror upon Ruauck-El.
Meanwhile, Bridazak and friends are in search of Spilfer Teehle's missing family. Their quest leads them to visit old enemies, travel through beautiful but deadly locations, and will ultimately take them on an adventure of new discoveries of themselves.
Each group is on their own mission, but as destiny would have it, their fates are more entwined than they could possibly know.
Internationally acclaimed author, Brae Wyckoff, brings a new depth to fantasy storytelling in The Dragon God.
The Vampire King
The heroes of Ruauck-El are reeling over a great loss. There is no time to rest and mourn as the dwarven leaders within the Frost Dwarf keep, the Shield, have called upon an ancient tradition, the Giimtock, to unite the clans under one ruler to lead them into war.
Trillius, who had succumbed for a short while to an evil entity of a blue dragon called Dal-Draydian, longs to be reunited with the dead creature’s knowledge of the lost treasures of Ruauck-El. Young Jack has mysteriously disappeared within the Frost Dwarf citadel and the clues lead Trillius, tasked to find him, deep into darkness where he discovers the Vampire King.
New heroes emerge, old heroes return, and the depths of evil are revealed in this third installment of the Horn King Series. Destiny thirsts after every man but who will dare to drink from their fated cup and bare their soul to the truth of who they really are.
Internationally acclaimed and award winning author, Brae Wyckoff, weaves his novel in epic fantasy storytelling fashion that will grip you from the opening chapter to the very end and leave you wanting more.
