Author Biography
Hi all. I’m an avid reader of fantasy and count Tolkien, Irvine, Goodkind and Rowling amongst my favourites. I am also keen on Saxon/Viking re-enactment where I learned the brutal reality of fighting in a shield wall. I have cracked fingers and ribs on several occasions so it’s not for the faint hearted. :)

Writing has become my main hobby and I am a self published author. This is not an easy route and I have come across many pitfalls along the way. I’ve written a fantasy trilogy The Prophecy of the Kings, which comprises Legacy of the Eldric, Dragon Rider and Shadow of the Demon - sample chapters and reviews can be found on this website. This is the beauty of self publishing - I can show you my work to let you decide if it’s for you. I have just written Drachar’s Demons which I thoroughly enjoyed writing.

I believe my tales are good and they are getting some really excellent reviews. My books will definitely appeal to lovers of traditional fantasy. The plot is complicated, but the tale is described as easy to read. Some reviews want more in the way of character development, some reviews really like my characters. I like the reader to fill in the gaps and I enjoy hearing other people’s interpretations of my characters.

Being self published, I rely on word of mouth, so if you enjoyed my books please, please spread the word - on Amazon, Facebook, Twitter or all of these!


Book Review
Readers\' Favorite Book Contest Award Winner Reviewed by Anne B. for Readers' Favorite

David Burrows brings readers an adventure of epic proportions in The Prophecy of the kings Trilogy. The plot quickly draws the reader into the action of this novel. Burrows created a mystical world with equally mystical creatures, dragons, wizards, prophecies, demons, sorcery, and princes. The creatures come to life on the pages of The Prophecy of the Kings. The action in this book keeps readers eagerly turning the pages. Burrows successfully gave each character a distinct voice. The threads of three worlds are woven together to create an adventure filled with battles, journeys, allies, and enemies. The reader will go deep into the bowels of the earth haunted by the dead. They will accompany Kaplyn into a nightmare tower.

Book 1 Legend of Eldric sets the foundation for this trilogy. Prince Kaplyn is low on the line for the throne, and he is bored. He sets out to find adventure. Lars is bound for death when Kaplyn comes to his rescue. The pair assists a wizard in retrieving a pendant. They set in motion a prophecy that could destroy their world.

Burrows words are like magic. He paints a portrait on each page. Fans of fantasy know his name well. They know they can depend on an escape into another world when they read one of his books. Burrows never fails to please.
