First-time author Angelo Verdelli has released the first two titles in his 6-book series simultaneously. The series TELLERS TALE includes book 1: Rise of the Talusand book 2: Four Strangers both available for download now.

Both titles are classified as Fantasy and will appeal to Fantasy/Sci-Fi lovers as well as young adult readers everywhere.
The epic series begins in Rise of Talus when a prince discovers his world has been turned upside down. His father has robbed him of his birthright and plans to have him murdered to ensure another’s succession. Through a mystic named Lacunae, Talus befriends The Darkness in order to survive. The conspiracy deepens as the prince learns that the God of his father has manipulated the king since his birth. In his desire to ascertain the truth, Talus learns that he is part of a plan to reveal The One for what it truly is and for that he must die. Talus sees himself as the savior of man justifying his actions in order to free man from God’s tyranny. His quest is to enter the heavens and confront the being that is bent on his demise.
The story continues in the Four Strangers when the prophecy involving adolescents from South Portland, Maine begins. Lost, they seek a way back home and their allegiance is only to that end. As they search for a way back to the Polar Caves, they become involved with those opposing and defending God itself. Their destiny has been foretold and so those surrounding them seek to either have them fulfill their fate or be killed in order to prevent them from doing so. Do they trust Talus (The King of Atresia) or Teller (The spiritual Leader of Galea)? Do they trust The One or The Darkness that seeks The One’s destruction? Through the ordeal they learn about themselves and the true meaning behind their journey and the red door.
Much like C.S. Lewis did with The Chronicles of Narnia, Verdelli will capture readers’ imaginations instantly with the first chapter and compel them to join him on the fantastical journey that is the TELLER’S TALE and await each new title with excited anticipation.
