From a very early age, the creative worlds found within the pages of literature have spoken to the deepest depths of my imagination. Creativity is my passion, and I’ve spent 31 years seeking it. To have the opportunity afforded to me by Lavish Publishing to share my creative spark with you all is an honor that transcends words. It is the realization of a 16-year dream. 


Rosinanti sparked into my mind at the age of 15. For Christmas that year, a good friend gave me a spiral leather bound notebook with the words “ROSINANTI BY KEVIN KESSLER” written in calligraphy on the first page. From that moment I was off to the races. Clichéd as it may sound, the Rosinanti Series is my baby, and the characters found within are my family. 


I want to thank Lavish Publishing for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime, to stand beside some truly amazing wonderful and talented authors and join this truly amazing team. It is my sincerest hope that The Rosinanti Series will capture the imagination of the Lavish audience, and you will all come to love these characters as I have for over half my life.

The Rosinanti Series

An epic dragon adventure….



book 1


The Rosinanti Dragons are no more - or are they?


Since their extinction nearly one thousand years ago these primal powerhouses have fallen into the obscurity of history’s forgotten lore. In that time, humans have come to dominate the world of Terra, peacefully ignorant to one horrifying truth: ancient evil stirs around them, waiting to reclaim its lost world.


For Valentean Burai, animus warrior of the kingdom of Kackritta, the details surrounding humanity’s victory over the Rosinanti are more than just a history lesson. The long-buried mysteries of this archaic conflict may hold the answers that he has so desperately sought regarding his own past. (New Adult, clean read)

The Decimation

of Casid

A Novella, Book 1.5


While an entire world away, men turn into dragons and ancient magic ignites the air, Casid lived on in peaceful ignorance. This tiny village and its people existed outside of the conflict which threatened to swallow Terra, until the day chaos itself landed upon its shores.


Now, one lone warrior seeks to protect his family, his friends, and the woman he loves as demons rise from the flames to burn everything he has ever loved to ash. This man is no god, no fundamental force of nature. He is simply a man, alone against the fury of chaos.


Casid will be decimated, consumed by the same blaze which threatens to overtake all of Terra. But what will rise from the ashes of this once perfect haven, forged in the fires of tragedy and loss, might become the most fearsome opponent the darkness has ever known.

Wrath of the Faithful



Book 2


Valentean Burai and Seraphina Kackritta barely escaped the grip of chaos. Only by working together were these two life long soul mates able to combat the greatest threat the world of Terra has ever known.


But when they find themselves separated, with the entire world turned against them, both princess and animus warrior must battle not only the forces of chaos and darkness that seek to end their world, but their own crippling doubts and fears.


Valentean must also face the horrifying truth of himself. He is one of the last surviving members of the Rosinanti race, and holds within him world-destroying power, and the unwanted uncontrollable ability to transform into a fearsome dragon.


The struggle of man vs beast is not limited to the battlefield. Valentean will wage that war internally, within the confines of his own conflicted heart.


But, in the end, who is stronger? The man, or the dragon?
