Renshai Trilogy

These 3 books focus on the character of Colbey Calistinsson in addition to other characters that play central roles in the storyline. Colbey is the most skilled swordsman the Renshai tribe has ever known. Yet, after his tribe is almost completely eradicated, he is forced to search for purpose and also determine a new course for his existence ...otherwise the evil forces of the East will destroy the neutral forces of the West in the Great War that prophesied to plunge more than half of the continent in a violent war.

Later in the series Colbey acquires powerful telepathic and psychic abilities. This, he discovers (in the third book) stems from his heritage. Colbey is in fact the son of Thor, the Norse God of Thunder and grandson of Odin, King of the Norse Gods. Colbey now realises that he is in fact the son of a mighty god and a mortal women from a mighty warrior tribe (Renshai). However, true to character, he's undaunted by his new findings and soldiers through on many quests with his sense of purpose and his dedication to ONLY do what he feels is right regardless of the consequences... even if it may possibly result in the Ragnarok and bring about the end of the world.

He may seem cold and aloof and is at times rightly so. However, in actuality, he is a methodical person/demi-god who doesn't allow emotions to cloud his actions in doing what is right. He is in perfect mastery of himself, in body and mind and as such cannot be cowed. His skill is unmatched by either men nor gods and he is sumpremely self assured - this often makes him come across as being sumpremely arrogant. Eventually, he comes to marry the goddess Freya.
