For generations the Troll Wars have ravaged the northern Imperial Highlands with no end in sight. Through it all, the people took solace in their faith that trolls were unorganized and incapable of doing more than causing a nuisance to those who lived outside of the cities. But something has changed.

A new troll leader, Matriarch Kovag, is exceptionally brutal and ruthless, seeing the human inhabitants as little more than an infestation that must be eradicated. Uniting the trolls against the Falestians, the daring attacks become unpredictable and even the most bold begin to fear that the time of man has come to an end.

Follow the heroes of Falestia as they desperately fight to defend their homeland, their families, their dreams, and their ideals against a seemingly unstoppable force that is overwhelming and terrifying. But will their combined efforts be enough to survive a prophecy that threatens to tear apart everything that the bold heroes are fighting so hard to achieve?

KING WORREN, An inspirational and charismatic leader with a dream for the future that is unrivaled in the human world. His determination to end the Troll Wars and usher in a new age for Falestia grabs the hearts of the people and those who would willingly sacrifice themselves in his name.

RAWTHORNE, The nephew of the King with thoughts of foreboding and signs that will lead to the destruction of everything he cherishes. The more he fights to change the future, the more he fears he will bring about the inevitable conclusion.

LORRENTS, Brother of the King and most loyal follower. Betrayed by those he trusted most, Lorrents finds his eyes opened to the possibilities that his brother has long-since spoken of and embraces the dream of a unified world. His efforts will either save or damn all of Falestia.

MATRIARCH KOVAG, The vicious and unscrupulous troll leader determined to eradicate the infestation that is man and see her people claim the Kingdom she believes is rightfully theirs.

PRINCE BRAKSIS, The son of the King and heir to the throne. The fate of not just Falestia but the entire world depends on him becoming the man he is meant to be. But to do so, he must first prove that legends are not born, but made through tragedy, hardships, and triumph.

Falestia marks triumphant return of The Imperium Saga and the beginning of The Warlord Trilogy. From the struggles and burdens of war, to the heartfelt bond of family and friendship, to the ultimate betrayal and tragedy, Bowyer continues the tradition of epic fantasy in a book that will leave readers craving more.

The few fortunate survivors look to the child of prophecy as their savior, a twelve-year-old girl known to them as the Chosen One.

The Seven Kingdoms, better known as the Imperium is beset by skirmishes with its dissatisfied citizens. A young Empress, Karleena, has recently claimed the throne after the assassination of her father.

Warlord Braksis, a defender of the Empress, finds himself thrust into battle after battle to preserve the Imperium. From the Dartian Plains where the Imperial Army confronts a legion of rebelling hunters, to a three-headed reptilian creature, to a Shadow Mage, Braksis must persevere or all may be lost.


During his trials, Braksis will ally himself with the Madrew elf Kai, as well as other heroes of the realm. He soon learns that the plight of the Imperium may have origins more sinister than dissatisfied citizens – a single tyrant, Zoldex, may be behind the revolts and attacks throughout the Imperium.


In several confrontations of good versus evil, Braksis, Karleena, and Kai find themselves in grave danger. Will they manage to overcome the forces amassed against them? Will they uncover Zoldex’s true scheme in time to save the Imperium? At every turn, a new danger emerges to bar their path and make the future of the Imperium look bleak. The heroes of the realm will soon learn that the struggle for harmony has a very dear price.

The Empress has been kidnapped while in the midst of trying to unite the races. Her true whereabouts are unknown, but her return is vital to the survival of the Seven Kingdoms.


One dwarf, the Mage Ilfanti, is determined to find Karleena and return her to the realm to face the threat of Zoldex and fulfill her dream of unification. His mission will not be an easy one. He must journey far from the Imperium in search of a mystical artifact that will allow the wielder to have any one question answered. That question: “Where is Karleena?”


Follow Ilfanti as he returns to a life of an adventurer and battles against time to save the Imperium. Will he be able to find the mystical artifact and locate the Empress in time?


v v v v v


This has all the makings of a great tale: The realm is in peril; a kidnapped damsel in distress; and the old adventurer coming out of retirement for one final quest to find an artifact that will reveal the location of the Empress, bring her back, confront Zoldex, and then usher in a new era of peace and prosperity for all races.


No pressure.


Three centuries of rust and dust. Cala and Herg were right to be concerned. They were right to have doubts. A lot has changed in three hundred years; not counting my silken black hair that has been replaced by this whitish gray. I’m older than any dwarf has a right to be, and I actually think that I still matter, that I can still make a difference.


Maybe I am deluding myself. Then again, maybe not. I may be old, but I still feel as young and as energetic as when I was a Paladin. The years have treated me well. I never gave in to the passage of time. I always worked hard to make sure that I was physically fit. Perhaps I may fall a step or two behind my younger self, but I will keep up.


Yes, I will keep up. I will not give in to the norms of society. I will not be an elder that others look at and brush aside as being frail and weak. I will not be a burden on those I care about. I am Ilfanti. I am a dwarf. I am a Mage. I am going to find the Orb of Prophecy, then the Empress, then see this war through to the end, and when I do, I am going to dance on the top of Zoldex’s grave.

Prophecy. Destiny. Schemes. Manipulation. Powerful forces have been at work to prepare the Imperium and the world around it for the dark times to come. Savior. Guardian. Tyrant. Despot. Roles have been cast, and sides chosen. The victors. The losers. Good. Evil. Only history will determine who was who and pass judgment on the times that can only be considered the end of days by those who experienced them.


Zoldex and his legions have brought the once proud government of the Imperium to ruin, leaving an overwhelming sense of desperation and hopelessness to many of the survivors. His forces have spread out, claiming most of the land and dominating with an iron fist. Survivors of his siege seek salvation in the north, in Falestia, the only unconquered Kingdom of the realm. But even the glimmer of hope is threatened to be extinguished as Zoldex's forces hunt the survivors down.


A new world order is in place. A tyrant sits upon the throne, victorious. Even those who would resist struggle to band together and organize, leaving most to fend for themselves. Even the Chilf of Prophecy, Kyria, the last hope of so many, finds that fulfilling her destiny will be no easy task.


Corruption marks the beginning of a deadly new world, the foundation of Zoldex's reign. Seen through Zoldex's perspective, Bowyer's latest installment of The Imperium Saga will delve on the dark side and blur the lines of everything you know, or think that you know.

No society that is comprised of individuals throughout history has ever been perfect. There will always be those motivated by their own desires and needs and passions and fears that set them outside of the laws of the society that they belong. The Mages, as advanced as they are, are no exception to this rule. Those who violate the precepts of the Mage’s Council are dubbed Renegade Mages, regardless of their crime, and have a special branch of highly trained magic users, known as the Drannin, hunt them down and bring them back to face justice under the laws of their society.


But the days of the Drannin have come to an end, with only one survivor to the order, Master Aravinda. The Last Drannin, a Mage so feared that even those who would never even consider violating the Council’s rules back away from and try to avoid. In the dark days of Zoldex, when evil Mages run rampant and the world at large is suffering at the hands of Renegade Mages, it is time for the Drannin to be restored to its former glory. Handpicking the best and the brightest from the survivors of the Mage’s Academy, Master Aravinda is determined to build the next generation of Drannin.


Sartir, one of the best friends of the prophesied savior, Kyria, finds himself torn between guilt for the actions of a Shadow Lord trapped inside his body and his desire to always be by the Chosen One’s side. Ultimately deciding to become one of the new Drannin, he is determined to master the beast within and become worthy once more of being a companion of Kyria.


The new Drannin will have their hands full, though, as two threats loom on the horizon. Years ago, a single troll, Matriarch Kovag, united her people and led them on a crusade to cleanse the infestation that was humanity. Defeated by King Worren of Falestia, the trolls believe that one day she will return to unite them once more. That day has finally come, though Kovag is more than she was, and is reborn as a Mage. With the survivors of Zoldex’s siege migrating north to Falestia, a new troll threat within the borders would be devastating. Will the resurrection of Kovag seal the fate of those who would stand against Zoldex? Or does her return herald something different?


Princess Erlyn, niece of King Worren and cousin to Warlord Braksis, will lead famed heroes of Falestia to investigate the rumors of Kovag’s return. Along with Atherok, Shalin, Hallador, Davalos, and Zoaa, they will not back down from the rumors or the devastating memories of the past as they seek to find answers and deal with the troll threat. With Kovag being hunted by the Drannin and the legendary Falestians, will her return be thwarted before it has even begun?


Whether it is or not, the true threat may be the one that none of them see coming. As the Renegade Mage Crelestra returns to Grimsgaard, the wraith city that believes she is their God, to establish a foothold of power. She too is seeking Kovag under the orders of Zoldex, and she will not stop no matter who gets in her way. Master Aravinda has reason to know and fear Crelestra well, for she was the one who had slaughtered his fellow Drannin and left him as the last survivor. Will history repeat itself with his new Drannin?


The Drannin, the Falestians, the trolls, and the wraith all have their fates intertwined, and their final confrontation is inevitable. But who will survive, and how will the outcome impact the overall war with Zoldex? One thing is for certain, none of their lives will ever be the same again.

Genetic manipulation and enhancement becomes the key to evolution being worked on by scientists from around the world who are privy to a discovery found in the heart of a catastrophic storm that devastated Earth. With the research conducted, test subjects show augmentation in all facets of being, from physical fitness to prowess to acuity. Beyond the obvious evolution to the test subjects, the discovery also led to vast scientific, medical, and militaristic breakthroughs that normally would have taken generations to achieve. But not all of the scientists on the project were willing to work in secrecy and with no personal gain. A handful of the lead scientists contacted foreign powers and agreed to sell the technology to the highest bidders as long as they were extracted.

Logan Stone, Captain of Shadow Recon was deployed to the secret underground facility that had been breached. Arriving too late, he and his team only found more questions than answers. Before they could discover what was really going on, they were pulled out by a classified military unit and ordered back to base.

Twenty years later, Stone had little care for what he had stumbled upon that night or for his life as a black-ops military leader at all. After losing his wife, Stone’s sole priority was raising his daughter and giving her a good and happy life. But no matter how hard he tried to keep her safe, circumstances keep trying to draw him back into a world where violence, mayhem, and plausible deniability dominate his every thought.

The technology is out there, the secret of the GENs is on the open market, and the government agency that had been tasked with recovering the technology or destroying all evidence of its existence has been targeted for assassination. Former Shadow Recon team member Alexander Hodge, the current United States President, reaches out to Stone to request aid. Reluctantly, Stone is drawn back into the fold, but not before he is provided a personal guarantee by the President to let him do things his way and with no oversight.

It is a race as Stone and his team fights to keep the true secret of the discovery from coming out and recover that which had been stolen. Gen-Ops combines military, espionage, intrigue, and strong character development in a fast-paced and dangerous not-too-distant future world where the fate of humanity hangs in the balance.

Silver Leaf Books proudly presents a new type of novel full of emotion, drama, and life challenges that will touch each and every readers' souls.

Continuing the Passion follows the story of Connor Edmond Blake, a best-selling Fantasy and Science Fiction novelist who, after suffering the tragic and unexpected loss of his father decides that the best way to honor the memory of his father is by carrying on the legacy that his father left behind.

Connor’s father, William Edward Blake, was a Hall of Fame High School Baseball Coach who led his team to numerous state championships. Most of Connor’s memories and moments he shared with his father have something to do with and revolve around the sport of baseball. As a former coach himself, of a men’s softball team, Connor decides to at least make the attempt to coach a High School team in attempt to honor his father.

In the midst of his efforts, Connor is deeply entrenched in family concerns and doing his best to help his mother and siblings in this trying time. Rather than letting the death of his father crush him, Connor rises to the challenge, ready or not, and becomes the central figure in the family that is there for everyone else.

Through a new government program sponsored by the Governor, Connor is presented with the opportunity to become not just an assistant coach, but a head coach of a new school and baseball team. The school itself is a statewide school of choice in an attempt to reduce the stress and attendance of primarily inner city and other over-populated schools. In it’s inaugural year, there was little hope for an athletic program until the pursuit of Connor’s mission to honor his father attracted the attention of the Governor, Superintendent, and Principal, after a recommendation from the Principal of the school Connor’s father previously coached.

With assistant coaches from his softball days, years of drills, notes, and progress reports from his father, and a deeply ingrained knowledge and passion for the game, Connor begins his new career as a head baseball coach, hoping to live up to the name that his father had created. His task is not an easy one, with players who had never played before, establishing an entire athletic program, acquiring uniforms, funding, and even approving a schedule with the state league.

Through personality conflicts with members of the team, working to help a dyslexic player remain academically eligible, managing injuries, overcoming diversity and public scrutiny, and fighting to overcome additional tragedies that will impact every player on the team, Connor Blake will claim his father’s passion and struggle to persevere. He continues his father’s legacy, his passion, and slowly helps his family, and himself, move beyond the loss of the late William Edward Blake. 

Continuing the Passion is seen through the eyes of Connor Blake as he experiences the tragedy of the loss of his father, and his pursuit to help his family find a way to overcome the loss. In the end, after fulfilling his tribute to his father, Connor feels as if he did honor his father’s memory, and that if it were possible, his father was watching with love and pride.
