Legends of the Perilisc by Jesse Teller
Epic fantasies are a chance to truly leave this world and travel to faraway places and live within each tale. But every story has a history, a time “before” and its own legends of magical proportions. The world of Perilisc is no different. Welcome to the world of the LEGENDS OF PERILISC as the master storyteller of larger-than-life fantasy, Jesse Teller presents a series of short stories that add yet another layer to live, to encounter and to devour!
Travel through time and hear the tales of Simon Bard, immortal, as humanity began, was destroyed and began again. Simon was there, he was a player, an instrument of both the first age of man and the second.
Simon will recount the tale of the first king and his dragon, a meeting filed with passion and war. But this teller of tales doesn’t’ stop there as he risks the wrath of a brutal queen with tales that will both amuse and bemuse her in a fabulously daring and entertaining way! Come one, the guy is immortal, what’s to fear?
There is more to Simon and his tales, just as there is more to Perilisc and its rich and varied history. He has a vast capacity for compassion and a willingness to share his knowledge as a hero lay dying after saving his people while they are helpless to save him.
From a warrior hero tormented by loss and betrayal in childhood, to the retribution and healing he finds in returning to the place of his nightmares, we see another facet of an enchanting world. One man will set free both his heart and the lives of children not unlike he was as he slays the demon before him and the demon within.
Simon will tell tales of heroes who almost didn’t live to fulfill their destiny and evil mages who succumb to the darkness of their magic and their souls.
With the voice of Simon Bard, speaking through the pen of Jesse Teller, we watch as more pieces to the epic puzzle that is Perilisc fall into place, history forming the foundation for the present and fantasy coming to life in brilliant hues of color and dark shades of pain and flaws.
There is magic in wonderful storytelling, in creating worlds and populating it with characters and creatures and adventures both large and small. These tales are filled with that magic and are true gems in the world of books!
