Soul of the Prophet: The Elder of Edon Book I

“Action, fantasy, and adventure await in this epic anthropomorphic
journey” -Independent Book Review


Can there ever be peace between the oppressed and the oppressor?

The first book in the debut adult anthropomorphic fantasy series, The Elder of EdonSoul of the Prophet tells the story of an adolescent boy selected by ancient prophecy for a seemingly insurmountable task.

Fin grew up an orphan, an unfortunate casualty of a war between two races of dragons—the Faranchies and the Cullidons. Fin’s future seems bleak in Edon, a mystical land home to dragons, currently ruled by the Cullidons’ oppressive and abusive regime. But when Fin is chosen by an elder to unite the two dragon races, Fin must decide if he will accept his calling as the next prophet. Joined by a ragtag group of freedom fighters, Fin and his rebel friends face unimaginable danger as they battle dark forces attempting to retain power at all costs. And in this fight against oppression, there is no guarantee of victory or survival.
