Author Biography

E.M. Thomas is an author of two novels - an epic fantasy (The Bulls of War, now available) and a historical fiction set in Ancient Greece (Fortress of the Sun, currently being queried).

E.M. Thomas was born and raised on the East Coast of the United States but is a world traveler at heart. He caught the writing bug early on and has a passion for all good fiction, but especially that of the fantasy and historical variety. One of his favorite moments thus far in his young career was writing a chapter of his latest book about the great battle of Corinth - while sitting in the ancient site of Corinth.

Kyrus has lived through what he thought would be the worst of his life, but after the death of his loved ones he is still thrown into more than he can imagine. The life of a general suits him, until he’s thrown into a new life, one that he’s not so well prepared for. As a Lorrion, his life is entirely different, entirely suspect, and that of his one and only friend is the same. But the changes aren’t over yet for Kyrus, and they’re definitely not over for Tyghus either. With a sister marrying the enemy as a sign of peace, and a future that is anything but certain when he finds himself in enemy territory, Tyghus is determined to find his own path. But life for these two men will never again be as simple as it was, because there’s far too much at stake in The Bulls of War: Chronicles of the Andervold Thrones Book I by E.M. Thomas.

This book was definitely interesting. The characters are ones that you want to know more about and they seem to change and evolve in unique ways throughout the course of the story. Both of them have some pretty big flaws, like Kyrus’ inability to trust anyone, but those flaws can help them as well, and there is plenty going on throughout the plot to keep readers interested. With a whole bunch of action, a decent amount of romance, and plenty of other things as well, it’s a book I would recommend. The Bulls of War by E.M. Thomas is one that I will need to read again when the next one is released. Overall, really good.
