Author Biography

My name is Dhesan Neil Pillay, from Durban, South Africa.

My love for writing began at a young age as a series of stories about insects, our pets or the exploits of my favorite toys. However, when tasked with writing for a competition in the seventh grade, I was hooked by the idea of crafting a story of my own.

I began working on what would become The Anmorian Legends: Wrath of the Exiled in the ninth grade. Although the story was forming there was an element missing to it. There were times when I contemplated giving up the venture but I was motivated by the kind words of several English teachers throughout my high school years and the unwavering support of my family.

When I left home to study medicine at the University of Cape Town the ideas to expand my imagined universe exploded and the soul of the story came into being. And in my final year I completed the novel I had dreamed of writing for over a decade.

I released The Anmorian Legends: Wrath of the Exiled the following year, my first year of internship. Although elated that I had achieved my dream of writing my first novel, I knew that I would not be able to leave Anmor just yet. And so I am excited to announce that The Anmorian Legends: Legacy of the Sentinels is coming together. I look forward to sharing the sequel in Rezaaran's adventure with you my friends.

The Anmorian Legends: Wrath of the Exiled by Dhesan Pillay is the story of a slave called Rezaaran Valhara. After his planet was destroyed and his family murdered, he was enslaved by the people who wreaked havoc in his life. Just before he lost all hope, he was given the chance to join the Intergalactic Revolution of Independent Systems. This task force has only one task and that is removing the hold of evil Obsidian Dominion. During this war, he finds a purpose and a drive to make him move forward and leave his past demons behind. During this quest, he might find his true place in the world and his place in the war against Obsidian Dominion. He can be a hero if he takes the right path, but can he leave his past behind and move forward with a clear mind and a passionate heart?

Fantasy and sci-fi together is a potent mix. A few days ago, I would have said that this is a recipe for disaster, but Dhesan Pillay has proved me wrong. It is an amazing novel from a new writer and if I had not known that, I would never have believed that this novel was written by someone new. Granted, the characters of the story could have evolved some more, but overall the story had panache, a gripping chemistry between the two main characters, the descriptions were amazing, and the use of words was really good. Dhesan Pillay has the ability to build scenarios and atmosphere well and make it a part of the storyline. A job well done!
