Chronicles of Avilésor

WAR OF THE REALMS

 

A Fallen Hero, the first book in the series and winner of the Literary Titan Gold Book Award, was released on August 7, 2018. The sequel, Phantom's Mask, was published on July 8, 2020. The author has not yet released the publication date for Book III, although she has confirmed that there are a total of seven books counting a prequel planned for the series.

The War of the Realms series is a unique blend of paranormal, science fiction, and fantasy elements. Although readers experience the story told through multiple points of view from a variety of characters, including two antagonists, the tale ultimately belongs to Cato, who is the only true half-human, half-ghost hybrid in existence. He’s powerful and unique with two divine powers instead of one.

The United States government believes he is the key to developing a devastating weapon that will give humankind an advantage when war inevitably erupts between the Human Realm and Avilésor, the Ghost Realm. After being an unwilling test subject in Project Alpha for two years, Cato and the rest of his “lab-family” survive a transport accident to find themselves stranded and powerless in the middle of the wilderness. Hunted every step of the way by ghostly Shadow Guards with supernatural abilities and human Agents desperate to recapture their prisoners, the eight young fugitives are drawn to Cato’s hometown where the Rip between Realms connects the worlds. Cato wants nothing to do with his past, but as his enemies close in, he realizes he’s willing to do anything to protect his lab-family . . . 

. . . even kidnap the daughter of a ghost hunter and make a dangerous deal to become a mercenary.

"Noë’s excellent plotting and highly engrossing narrative grab hold of readers’ interest from the first page and keep them engrossed. The characterization shines as Noe skillfully takes readers into the intriguing supernatural world as Cato and his lab family make their harrowing escape. A superb debut!"

A Fallen Hero

 

 

"So many elements to love . . . the layered world building, the distinct and compelling POVs (villains included!), the harrowing conflicts Cato must battle through—and, of course, the found-family bond between him and his lab-siblings, which is such a powerful presence throughout the story. Don't be surprised if you say "one more chapter before bed" and find yourself closing the cover at dawn."

"I'm a sucker for found family stories and this one features a really strong found lab-family. These kids would do anything for each other, as is shown throughout the book, and I really can't wait to see more of them all in the next book."

"I feel Noë’s strongest asset as an author is her ability to make you fall in love with her characters. . . . I would recommend this book to anyone who has the patience to figure out a new world and the desire to fall in love with a few misfit kids."

A Fallen Hero

 

 

"The brilliant second installment in the Chronicles of Avilésor: War of the Realms series shows Noë at her most inventive, bringing out her ability to combine paranormal science fiction elements with deep human sentiment. Cato’s story (as well his lab family’s) packs an enormous emotional punch, and this novel should be on the top in its genre."
