Lou Wilham


What makes someone a hero?

Soliel-Dusk-is a banshee, living in a divided world, where he’s seen as the villain, but that doesn’t stop him from fighting against it, or those in power who seek to keep Mythikos at war with itself.

He’d thought things would be easier with Jericho at his side, but something is festering in Mythikos’ underbelly.

Faced with the source of the darkness, Soliel will have to decide which is more important, the crumbling city, or its people crying for help.

In this epic conclusion to the Villainous Heroics duology, loyalties are put to the test, friendships are stretched to their limits, and villains become the heroes they never thought they could be.

About the author

Born and raised in a small town near the Chesapeake Bay, Lou Wilham grew up on a steady diet of fiction, arts and crafts, and Old Bay. After years of absorbing everything, there was to absorb of fiction, fantasy, and sci-fi she’s left with a serious writing/drawing habit that just won’t quit. These days, she spends much of her time writing, drawing, and chasing a very short Basset Hound named Sherlock.

When not, daydreaming up new characters to write and draw she can be found crocheting, making cute bookmarks, and binge-watching whatever happens to catch her eye.

 Lou Wilham has such a way with writing characters, you become invested in their happiness, and want to see them succeed.
