Elliott Baker

Author Elliott Bakerabout this book: For three thousand years a hatred burns. In seventeenth century France two souls incarnate, one born the child of a prosperous merchant, the other, determined to continue a brutal incarnation begun long ago, barters his way into physical form.

In ancient Egypt, two brothers are disciples of the pharaoh, Akhenaten. When the pharaoh dies, the physician takes the knowledge to Greece, and with the first oracle originates the mystery school. The general makes a deal with the priests and becomes pharaoh. One remembers, one does not.

The Sun God's Heir trilogy was born from a striking dream had a number of years ago. It took me a while to begin to write it. The main protagonist and antagonist as well as the setting were in the dream. This isn't unusual for writers. Having practiced hypnotherapy for a number of years, I also came into contact with reincarnation in a very real concrete way. I also love history in narrative form and enjoy taking some piece of the past away from a novel. The Sun God's Heir: Return (Book One) is historical fantasy, with an emphasis on portraying the historical characters and settings as accurately as possible.

• I read this in one gulp! Swashbuckling on land and sea, I loved the echoes of Sun-Tzu in the advice of Baker's fencing master, on-stage only in the memory of René Gilbert, the young protagonist, who wrestles with the complexities of love and honor in 17th century France. (Those complexities reminded me of Perez-Reverte's Captain Alatriste series.) — John Bubar

• A great read! From the first sword fight I could not put it down. Adventure, romance, action with just the right amount of his history and mysticism. The main character Rene displays all the qualities a true hero should; loyal, smart, humble, and a ferocious warrior all opponents will fear before their end. I could not help but feel fully immersed in the story. One of the best reads I can remember, I am eagerly anticipating the next book in the series!! — Amazon Reader
