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 (

Hi Anirudh,

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)

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 »

It's rare that I write a review. This book is long and I finished it in one sitting. The story is that of a warrior of destiny from humble origins who progresses from an orphanage to a military academy and then to the top" Read more of this review »

Hi,
I can tell you that A Testament of Steel is a sequel of sorts to William Wilde, just like William Wilde is a sequel of sorts to the Castes and the OutCastes. However, it's not necessary to have read either of those other series to enjoy the new on See Full Answer
