Swept up by myth and magic, they discover their destiny is much more than they could have ever imagined.

"I haven't been this excited about a series since I read Christopher Paolini's Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr. R.T. Kaelin could just be the next star in the fantasy galaxy. "

Synopsis

Only once before, 400 years ago, did the Gods step in to prevent evil from taking over the land.  Nine Gods chose a champion from among the races of Terrene, bestowing upon them special powers, including immortality, which enabled them to restore the lands to a balance between good and evil.  These champions were called the White Lions.

Nikalys, 17, and his sister, Kenders, barely 16, live peacefully in the town of Yellow Mud located in the Oaken Duchies on the continent of Mantioch … until the blistering hot day they go to the nearby lake for a swim.  There they spy an unknown Sun Elf mage conjuring up a massive water creature hundreds of feet tall, shaped like the torso of a man.  The elf, Jhaell Myrr, directs the watery beast to plunge through the village of Yellow Mud, apparently drowning all in its path, including Nikalys’ and Kenders’ parents and older brother, Jak.

As the only survivors, brother and sister strike out on their own, hoping to somehow avenge their family.  But they must keep the secret from the authorities that Kenders, too, has magical powers.  For the Duchies’ inhabitants, whose memories are as short as their mortal lives, have not only forgotten over the years that the White Lions and their magic had once saved their world, they have learned to fear magic and have outlawed it throughout the land.

Reviews:

"Progeny is the debut novel of R.T. Kaelin and I have to say I was really impressed. The story moves right along, but Kaelin takes the time to flesh it out and give the world and the characters depth. I got caught up and wanted to know what happens next. Not to mention wanting to know more and more about the world I was immersed into.

Overall, I would favorably compare his writing with Brandon Sanderson, Scott Lynch, (early) Robert Jordan and even a bit of David Eddings flavor mixed in. I really enjoyed this book and my biggest disappointment is going to be waiting for the next installment."

-C. Shadis,  reviewer at LibraryThing.com


“When I picked up Progeny, I was soon swept up into a world so large, and a tale so relentless, that I could not put it down. The plot flows as strongly as a waterfall but manages to pace itself and keep the reader guessing.

The disparate characters we meet along the way are intriguing and richly nuanced, reminding one of Tolkien's without being derivative. This is a big book and a big world, surprisingly well conceived for a first novel. I very much look forward to the next book in the series, and I strongly encourage Mr. Kaelin to keep writing.”

-D. Kistner, Associate Editor of FutureCycle Press


If you're a fantasy fan, R.T. Kaelin's first in a series, Progeny, is a very satisfying excursion into a world of magic, myth, and a bit of mayhem.

The characters are richly drawn, and I found myself developing an emotional connection to them from the get-go. I was enchanted by the concept of the "Strands," shimmering strings of light that are woven into various patterns to accomplish everything from healing to mass annihilation. For me, it evoked comparisons to what I know of string theory, and the potential power that lies within each of us.

I highly recommend this book for those who love fantasy. Even those who've never explored the genre will be drawn into Kaelin's richly realized world where ancient gods and goddesses sometimes do interfere in the affairs of man.

I look forward to the next book with great anticipation! I haven't been this excited about a series since I read Christopher Paolini's Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr. R.T. Kaelin could just be the next star in the fantasy galaxy.

-D. Overall
"For me, Progeny is in league with both The Chronicles of Narnia and Lord of the Rings and far better than Harry Potter - Progeny has a wealth of depth to it that I haven't seen in many books."
