Sporting an ensemble cast of young teens who discover they are descended from ancient gods, Milo Banks and the Tower of Light is the first in a brand-new series of fantasy novels inspired by Greek mythology, from author G.D. Court.
Meet Milo and Emma Banks...
When Milo is skipped a grade in school, he becomes the smallest - but still the smartest - kid in his class. As an escape, Milo buries himself in fantasy and sci-fi novels, unaware that his life is about to become more fantastic - and dangerous - than anything he's ever read in books. His sister Emma, a fantastic dancer, has the world's worst case of stage fright. That changes when she begins to grow a pair of wings, and the people of a strange new world begin to think she's a hero of prophecy... 
In a realm created by ancient gods...
Thousands of years ago, in a realm called Astros, a thousand ancient gods fought a battle that left five standing. One tried to enslave humanity. The other four created races of warriors, inspired by the human form, to protect us. When the gods mysteriously disappeared, they left their warrior-children behind to form societies of men and women with powers greatly exceeding our own.

  • SARGONAUTS are super strong, bulletproof, able to lift a school bus with their bare hands.
  • ACOLYTES have wings and can fly and heal any living thing.
  • SAVANTS are masters of elemental forces, what some might call magicians.
  • FERALS can transform into any warm-blooded animal after drinking that animal's blood.
Milo and Emma discover they are more than human. With their new-found powers comes a responsibility more dangerous and terrifying than they ever imagined, because a terrifying force of evil is coming to Astros that will change the twins' lives forever.
