Read full description of the books:
For two thousand years, the Aeons have ruled Terra with a preternatural power. Calling themselves "servants", they have brought about a millennium of peace, prosperity and ecological balance, but a threat is growing. A movement of heretics is gaining among the people, seeking to break from Aeon rule. Evading false charges of treason, Makiria and Volar lead a ragtag band of outcasts north to the Wood Coast of the Èrin Forest in search of a safe passage. There, they stumble upon Tome and Ketri, simple Terrans caught in the first fires of the coming conflict. When their homes are destroyed and their families cruelly murdered, the two teens are rescued by the ancient Aeons, to Ketri and Tome, living gods as distant and unfathomable as the stars in the sky.
Amid twists and intrigues, acts of heroism and betrayal, tragedy and heartbreak, small kindnesses and great peril, the young Terrans must elude Zemorusag's Weepers, savage warriors ravaging their forest homes; while unbeknownst to them their strange new benefactors carry with them a secret; a secret that, if revealed, threatens to shatter their most cherished beliefs.
When the natural ties that bind a people are shattered and broken into shards, can these razor-sharp pieces ever be put back together again? Or is violence and death the only possibility when the gods are at war and the reckoning is coming.

Read information about the authorBorn on the shores of Lake Michigan north of Chicago, Illinois, as a boy William was more at home on the beaches, local playing fields or exploring the woods behind his house than in a classroom. Precocious and free-spirited, he was given to the rough and tumble of sports and other physical activities.
All this changed the day he discovered what he would later call--"the magic book; the first book that made the movie go in my head"-- J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. Devouring it, the Lord of the Rings and later The Silmarillion in consecutive readings, his life-long love of fantasy and poetry began.
During his high school years, now an avid reader, William became a student of science fiction/fantasy, mythology and folklore and would seek out similar works by Robert A. Heinlein, Frank Herbert, Roger Zelazny, Marion Zimmer Bradley and Stephen R. Donaldson. Graduating from college with honors, he received his first awards in the genres of poetry and short fiction while, all the while, his own fantasy world was slowly taking shape in his imagination.
In 1988 surrounded by family and friends he married the love of his life, rock singer and part-time journalist for the Soho Weekly News, Kelly Andersen. Together they have three wonderful children, Shae, Erin and Erik. While William wrote, Kelly went on to a long successful third career as a restaurateur and is currently a sought-after health and lifestyle coach.
Throughout his writing life, William has always considered himself a poet having written seven books of poetry, along with a number of short stories, three movie scripts and an Off Broadway play. At the same time, like some model train enthusiast lovingly shaping an H0 scale paradise in his basement, he was tinkering obsessively with his fantasy world which presented first as hastily written notes in a journal; these scratchings would later become notebooks and then computer files filled with detailed histories, maps, poetry, character sketches and stories.
Twenty-two years after that first note was taken, he decided to pull it all together and began Godsfade, a high science fiction/fantasy series set in a dystopian future, The Living Gods, Awakening in the Hollow and The Dark Gate being the first three installments.
