Richard Kellum is a novelist living in London.
Unknown Roots is a Rural American Dark Fantasy set in the present but delving into the mythic past. It tells the story of Candy Farrell and Tomás Cloud, two high-school students in the small town of Archangel, Illinois. Candy and Tomás each possess powers inherited from family traditions kept secret for thousands of years. Candy’s connects her to the arcane life-force of the woods, while Tomás’s relates to a clandestine tribe of Native American spirit-warriors.
When a primordial shadow-beast known as Nataq escapes an imprisonment of many millennia, Candy’s and Tomás’s previously separate magical pathways tangle, resulting in a series of grisly deaths that could be the prelude to an approaching storm of blood and mayhem unless they find a way of trusting each other and working together.
Unknown Roots is the first volume of The Archangel Trilogy.
