The Forbidden Scrolls


If you love Epic Fantasy, then you'll love "The Forbidden Scrolls."

After a heist gone horribly wrong, Juliya awakens in a room of a monastery. While she knows she had stolen a mysterious artifact there, she can't remember or understand all which has happened since. She is offered a chance: help the High Priest track down the artifact: The Forbidden Scroll of Fire that she stole; or be turned over to the guards.

But there are complications. The scroll was taken from her by Frost Dirvent, the sorcerer who hired her to steal it and then betrayed her, leaving her for dead. The heir to a family of necromancers long since defeated, Frost has stepped forth from the ashes of history to reclaim the power he believes is his birthright.

Despite her misgivings, Juliya must work with a group of adventurers to track down Frost and reclaim the scroll from him before he can use its powers against an unsuspecting world. But the journey to stop him will take her to the last place she ever wanted to return to: Home.

"The Forbidden Scrolls is the start of an epic fantasy adventure, and I recommend you jump on the ride. You won't regret it!"

-N.W. Moors, Author of The Black Swans

"I believe the characters are the best part of this tale. They're easy to like and empathize with, and their relationships/interactions are nice to see."

-Jacob Faust, Author of Cracked

"Let me start by saying I loved this book. From the moment I read the first few pages I was engrossed in the story. I had a need to learn more about Juliya, her quest, and all the others I met along the way."

Redemption & Ruin: The Forbidden Scrolls Part II

The follow up "The Forbidden Scrolls" is now available for Preorder!  Pick up the next chapter in this epic fantasy trilogy!

Disaster has struck!  Frost Dirvent has used the legendary scroll of fire to murder thousands of innocents.  Now the vile sorcerer has continued his quest to collect all of the forbidden scrolls scattered throughout Teren’vei.

It’s a race against time for Juliya and her friends.  They’ll need to cross the entire continent and bring two desperate groups of paladins together to have any chance of stopping Frost before he can use the scrolls again.

United with the champions of the gods, Juliya must stand against a threat unlike any seen in thousands of years: an army of the dead and a necromancer who can bend the elements themselves.  Can they stop Frost from recovering all of the scrolls and rebuilding his family’s once glorious empire?  And even if they succeed, what will be the cost?

"[Cesca's] style is reminiscent of Terry Brooks, with a variety of interesting and heroic characters, a world of magic, and a quest to save the world from evil."

-Amazon Review

"Mr. Cesca pulls you into this land and its characters and landscapes and engages the reader with the numerous dangers faced, obstacles overcome, and relationships deepened, until you realize you really care about what happens. I couldn't put this story down!"
