Almost all children lie to their parents about skipping school, or avoiding homework. Not Thomas Rouxville. At ten years old, he convinced his mother that he absolutely had to stay up until the small hours of the morning, squinting into yet another novel. His English teacher demanded it, he said innocently; the book had to be read by morning. When his outraged guardian stormed the school in protest, it was gently, but firmly, explained that her son’s assignment was not due for weeks. The boy had a reading addiction, and short of barring him from the library, there was little they could do.

By fourteen the obsession ran wild as fire, Rouxville losing himself in fantasy novels and role playing games; entire universes of heroes and dragons, magic and dark villains far more exciting than the endless fields and beaches of Kent. As an adult, with a degree in geography and teaching career under his belt, Rouxville embarked on exploring the fictitious worlds of his own mind’s creation, and has since become known for The Kingdom of Shadows and Chronicles of Suvaria fantasy series. He’s currently working on the new, Oswald Sherman series, and loves to connect with his readers.

Athena is just four years old when a strange man whisks her away in the night and leaves her with her grandparents. When Athena is told that her parents have been killed, she doesn’t speak for a year—except in her sleep. The nightmares are relentless; she can’t escape them.

On her eighteenth birthday, Athena overhears her grandparents talking. They’re hiding something and it has to do with the death of her parents. When the town drunk forces his way into Athena’s home, he tells her a story that makes her blood run cold. Athena finally discovers the truth about her past and it changes her future forever.

A malevolent king. A world in peril. One young woman to save them all. Edgehill is the first book in The Kingdom of Shadows fantasy series by author Thomas Rouxville.
