Book Three, The Taesian Chronicles
Kindle format (390 pages, estimated)
The sunset of an old hero. The dawn of a new foe.
Paragon’s Call is the third and final book in The Taesian Chronicles trilogy. In this exciting and fast-paced conclusion, we pick up the story a year after the Battle of Eeron from book two, Ohlen’s Bane. Ohlen and his comrades, Therran and Ahmahn, discover the novaari, dangerous beasts that are half man, half animal. Ohlen is conscripted by Emperor Percy Saltos to lead a ragtag group of criminal misfits called Paragons, who are charged with seeking out these monsters and destroying them. But not everyone wants them to succeed.

In Paragon’s Call, the third book in The Taesian Chronicles, Steven Scott Williamson shows his continued growth as a writer with a truly original plot, the addition of new characters (who are the Paragons?), and major changes of scenery. He maintains the fast pace of Ohlen’s Arrow and Ohlen’s Bane, as well as what I liked the most in the previous two books: the dialogue and rapport between the original characters, Ohlen, Therran, Ahmahn and Kha’ard. Read and enjoy!

I enjoyed the series and especially Paragon’s Call when the author and characters seemed to be coming into their own. The series kept my interest and there were some thoughtful comparisons between the different characters and races portrayed in the novels. I would read more books from this author.

I read a lot of fantasy and I can tell you that these books are A+. Some books are very slow to get going but this gets you right into the action right away. Once I started reading it I really didn’t want to stop. The characters are very well developed and keep you invested. These books are very action packed. I would definitely recommend reading this. I can’t wait until the next one is released!!

I discovered The Taesian Chronicles by chance. I saw a man reading it on the train, then miss his stop. As he stood up to get off at the next stop, he saw me watching him. He shrugged and said he blamed the author (because he couldn’t put it down).
I ordered a copy as soon as I got home and after it arrived I couldn’t put it down, either. The action and pace is extraordinary. Although all the characters were well developed, some really stood out and became my favorites.
The author has a knack for creating action scenes that are both fantastical yet plausible, if that makes sense. I was always wanting to turn the page to see what would happened next. Not all authors can do that without it feeling tiring to the reader. He also is very good at describing what’s going on in a way that I can visualize everything, even when complex stuff is happening.
The story ended in a way that makes me really hope he writes more.

I’m not normally into reading fantasy, but this book was recommended to me, so I gave it a read.
It drew me in from the first chapter, lets just say, that I read the first book in one day, I couldn’t put it down, I had to know what was going to happen next.

Not to give to much away…but [Paragon’s Call] was a great end to a wonderful journey. I can’t wait for the next trilogy of the series.

The series so far (Book one: Ohlen’s Arrow, and Book two: Ohlen’s Bane) have really captured my attention. Book three, Paragon’s Call, exceeded my expectations. The characters are rich, the action intense, and the plot is well-developed.
