Son of the SIXTH

is a book by Richard Ellicott. Love, Mystery, revenge and action aplenty are waiting just inside the cover for the would-be reader....


Brothers Gabriel and Briamon meet the loves of their lives, but face two tricky problems. The first, she is the same girl, and secondly, her father wants them both dead. They escape to a new frontier with hopes of a bright future, but shadows of a dark past lurk around every corner.

Corlith and his two pals seek excitement and adventure away from the boredom of the orphanage, and are hot on the heels of a killer known as the Night Stalker. When they discover his true identity, their world and childhoods are forever changed.

After her children are slain, Sirona kills her husband and adds mass murder to her resume. Now old and alone and growing increasingly bitter, a strange boy arrives at her doorstep carrying a dead girl. Could redemption be at hand?

Son of the sixth is a story of the ties that bind, of friendship and family, and the power of forgiveness.


“With well-drawn characters and an intriguing and suspenseful storyline, this is a great holiday read – and one which young adults will also enjoy.” – Writing WA

New Reviews...Most from Amazon.

Just finished the book and loved it. Ended up not being able to put it down, haven't read like that for quiet sometime. Beautiful story of adventure with great underlying morals and characters. Well done Richard Ellicott on an excellent first book, I look forward to the next. 

I haven't read an entire novel since high school (and that was a long time ago!), but this book kept me intrigued all the way through. Richard paints a fantastic picture of the environment to complement the characters of such depth that you'll find yourself hoping that no harm comes to them, (or does depending on said character).

Brilliant read. Captivating from start to finish, with so much content for the imagination. Suspenseful, horrific and lovely, I whole heartedly commend the author on blending so many characters, stories and timelines into a well flowing, thought provoking, unforgettable book.

A brilliant read! Richard Ellicott has written an engrossing well written story with plenty of twists and turns right through to the end. Just who the night slayer is adds a little bit of mystery. Sets it up for a sequel?

Great read. One of those books that you can't wait to get back too. Unexpected twists and turns keep it exciting. Can't wait for Richard Ellicott's next book.

A gripping, brilliantly written fantasy story. The use and spectrum of vocabulary are clever, adding greater depth to the narrative. I dearly hope we hear more from this talented author in the future. Awesome read.

I loved this book. The twists, the turns, the detailed descriptions - all brilliant. The story is engaging. Each night I would look forward to reading it. This is an epic tale of family, breaking traditions and life. You have to read it!!


Dark Remnant is Here!
Yes, the long awaited (I hope) sequel to Son of the Sixth is finally finished and on both Kindle and paperback from the Amazon store.
