Now on Kindle and soon to be in trade paperback comes the 4th book in Talon's Epic and my 8th book I've written. I hope you've enjoyed this series as much as I like writing them. One more book in the series to go and the story will be complete. You can find the kindle book here.

Here we are only days away from the launch of The Long Twilight, the fourth book in the Talon’s Epic series. I want to take time to thank all the loyal Jeremiah Talon fans out there who have followed this series from book one. Writing is an adventure in itself and it is a learning process that never stops. It seems with each new book my writing sharpens and I continue to find my voice. For those of you who have followed my work you will be able to see how much my story telling process has changed in the nine years since the first book came out. And back further still how rough my story telling was with my first book in 1999, Keepers of the Past, book one of the Dark Frontier series (I’m in the early stages of rewriting that fist book, but more on that later). I think when you read not only the Long Twilight, but the second book in the New Kingdom series (due out this winter) you’ll find a sharper, cleaner story telling process.
I always envisioned Talon’s Epic as a TV series. Each book is a season and each chapter in the books as an episode of that season. From book one, to book five you will get the complete story. A creation of characters, their struggles, likes and dislikes and along the way I hope you find something special about each of the people in this story. I have come to know them well over the last nine years and next year with the completion of book five I will be saying goodbye to them for the last time. I have mixed feelings about that. On one hand I’d like to continue with them, see where they go after the five book arc. Yet as every writer knows, sometimes you have to let go of them, tell the story about the best years of their lives and close it out why they are on a high. Move on to some new story, with new characters, but always in the back of your head you wonder what the characters in Talon’s Epic might be up to.
Again thanks for following Jeremiah’s adventure and my writing career. Don’t worry though, there is still plenty of Jeremiah’s story to write. In the words of Jeremiah’s truest friends Leax Havoc, “This will make a grand part to my story.” And like Leax, I hope I have many more adventures to tell you, filled with interesting characters and situations for many years to come.

For those who came in late…
Taken from Earth in 1801, Jeremiah Talon found himself thrust into the middle of a galactic struggle between the forces of the Hy’dirian Citadel and a small but determined group of races choosing to be free. Originally captured by the Citadel because they believed that he harbored secrets, Jeremiah escaped and was befriended by Leax Havoc, a being descended from ancient ship builders, who quickly becomes Jeremiah’s greatest ally and greatest friend.
Together, Jeremiah and Leax began to build a fighting force. When they discover plans of a powerful warship thought lost, they risk all to rescue rebel prisoners on the planet Cassess O’Learvs. Home to a proud race of scholars, who were forced to become fierce warriors, fighting a desperate war in an attempt to rid their world of the Hy’dirian scourge. With new allies including brother and sister, Rom and Da’ren Til’nosh - Jeremiah moves forward with his plan to construct his warship and destroy the Citadel at any cost.
Hunted by the relentless forces of the Citadel, Jeremiah leads his reckless but determined band of fighters to the planet Aqualon, a dead world, once home to powerful war-like beings. There Jeremiah and his team are pitted against the planet’s dark and foreboding custodian who forbids them from learning the secrets of the planet and sentences them to an eternity of madness.
Now with the pieces in place, Jeremiah takes the fight to the Hy’dirian Citadel itself, but along the way he discovers things he never foresaw and is placed in a predicament that could forever change his life.
“The Long Twilight” is the fourth book in the successful Talon’s Epic series. The series has been compared by many to the pulp hero, John Carter of Mars and Author Charles F. Millhouse weaves many of those classic influences into his storytelling to bring Jeremiah’s adventures to life. For more information on his writings visit charlesmillhouse.com for details
