Davis Ashura is an author of such sublime depth and beauty that his works have been known to cause a tear to fall from the eyes of even the hardest of hearts.
Just kidding.
But he does write.
This humble writer, who refers to himself in the third person, resides in North Carolina, sharing a house with his magnificent wife who somehow overlooked Davis’ eccentricities and married him anyway. As proper recompense for her sacrifice, Davis then unwittingly turned his magnificent wife into a nerd-girl. To her sad and utter humiliation, she knows exactly what is meant by ‘Kronos’. Living with them are their two rambunctious boys, both of whom have at various times helped turn Davis’ once lustrous, raven-black hair prematurely white (it sure soun

Hi Anirudh,

The book is done. I'm going through a final revision, then it's off to the proofreader and interior designer. So...it probably should be out in late April with the audiobook available a few months later.(less)

Hi Bryce,
Glad you liked the Castes! As for William Wilde, it's YA and different. It takes place on Earth in the 1980s. I think of it as Percy Jackson meets Stranger Things. The first book is intentionally simple since I wrote it for my teenage sons, but each book increases in complexity and raises the stakes. And yes, it's connected to the Castes, even though that series takes place on another world. Somehow the main characters of Castes cross over to Earth and do what warriors do best. BTW I leave a big clue for how that happens at the end of Castes.
Regards,

Davis(less)

2015 Winner of the Beverly Hills Book Awards for Fantasy

Just found out that A Warrior’s Path is the 2015 winner of the Beverly Hills Book Awards in the category of Fantasy!

Yeah, I know they misspelled my name and got my website address wrong (I really should have chosen ‘David’ as a pen name instead of ‘Davis’), but I’m too excited to care! Read more of this blog post »
