Welcome to the official website of author Scott Austin Tirrell. Here, you’ll find a bit about Scott, his work, and his process. Below are his most recent novels.
The ancient wisdom of the Forest People says that humanity’s mages of yore were arrogant. At war with the Nephilim and searching for a means to upset the balance of power, they schemed an assault on heaven itself. Their plan- to capture one of God’s chosen, hold it for ransom, and vanquish the powerful Nephilim from their land. It was a plot that tempted wrath and a good smiting, to be sure, but against all odds, they were successful and ushered forth the dawn of a human age.
But now, the light of the cocksure mages has long since dimmed, and cracks form in the prison walls. The race that committed this folly knows not the trespass of their ancestors yet will face punishment all the same. A choice is upon the altar. Will humanity set their prisoner free and thus face judgment and possible doom, or will they rebuild the walls, throw away the door’s key, and again bask in the stolen power?
The fate of humanity lies with young Erikson Gray and his allies. The time for greatness or peril has come. In the dark periphery, the Nephilim wake again, sensing that a moment of transition is upon the land. Will young Erik and his allies pass these tests and bring the dawn of a second human age, or is it time for the ancient order of Nephilim to again ascend their throne? Find out. Dawn of the Lightbearer, book 1 of the Absolution of the Morning Star series, is coming July 2nd! Pre-order here!
In 1241, the year of the bull, an ancient evil awakens in the vast Steppe to the east, growing strong on fields of suffering. It has been 800 years since the Radix Obscurum threatened the Christian world through its servant and first oceanic ruler, Attila. Now, the second darkness, the spawn of Genghis, rides with wind in their hair and blood on their swords, eager to spread their dark empire to the western ocean.
After eight centuries of waiting, the order forged to protect Christendom from this ancient menace, the League of the Lion, sleeps and its once powerful weapons dull. Europe is fractured, and corruption stains its heart black. Hope is slim. But one remains to stand before this growing shadow, an unlikely hero, the orphan Isa. Bestowed with his dying faith’s most potent secrets, he marches forth on his long quest to slay this dark bull. On his journey, he will make friends and forge alliances that will last lifetimes, but ultimately his is a solitary burden that will be greater than anyone could imagine. Is this duty to be the Christian world’s salvation, or is his destiny something more?
The Slaying of the Bull is rich with real people, places, and events. Although the story is fiction, the world it sprouts from was all too real and undoubtedly terrifying. Step back to a time when faith was close, the stakes high, and existence a perilous struggle.
This is the first book of the upcoming Tocharian Gospels Series. This collection will follow Isa as he carves his path through history on a crusade to tear humanity from the grip of darkness and bring us back to the light.

Deep in the woods, there sits a lone cabin on a crystalline lake. The dwelling is not necessarily unknown, but the locals avoid it for a good reason. The Island of Stone has a history, and since that time, the branches are a little too clawing, the wind whispers, and the shadows stir beneath the pines.
This place now belongs to Trevor Benton. Left to him in his wife’s will, it’s a complete mystery. In life, Valarie shared everything with him, yet this island remained a secret. Why? Just before Trevor can discover the answer, the pull of his business empire distracts him. Now, after six years of being engrossed in a booming cut-throat world of greed, Trevor yearns for an escape. The Island of Stone seems a perfect respite. He can step away from the bustle to clear his head and finally get answers to the island’s puzzle.
But although the Island of Stone is a land of untouched beauty, Trevor will soon find that it is not a place to relax. As the sun dips low and the shadows devour the land, dark and ancient secrets blow through the trees, secrets that will change Trevor more than he can imagine.
