It’s hard to tell when someone’s soul changes, especially when dark energy is around.

Embark on an epic journey of adventure and magic with Henry and his brother Moris, as they discover a mysterious land filled with powerful wizards and ancient secrets. After their father goes missing, the brothers find themselves in possession of two powerful magic horns, and are thrust into a battle for survival in a far-off Universe. With one horn possessing dark energy and altering the soul of whoever carries it, the brothers must navigate treacherous alliances and learn to trust their instincts in order to find their way home. 

A thrilling fantasy adventure for young readers, The Horn’s Hoax will keep you on the edge of your seat as the brothers fight to uncover the truth and save their family.


In a strange world where wizards fight each other and are not what they seem, who can the brothers trust? More importantly, how will they ever get home alive? 


My Story

I, HECTOR CANTU KALIFA, live in Monterrey, Mexico with my wife and my four children, two boys and two girls. I meditate/pray every day and I enjoy sports, so I exercise at least four times a week.

The Horn’s Hoax: The Forbidden Instrument is my debut novel and Book One of the series The Horn's Hoax.



The writing of this book has been an unexpected pleasure for me, as I would never have imagined myself writing a book. 

It all began in September 2019. It was intended to be a ten-page short story. But as I wrote, my imagination and my taste for writing kept me working. I realized on a blank page I can create amazing things and let my imagination fly. Words kept coming, and I discovered the hard work of building a story; that’s why it took me too long for this first book. With the help of many people, I gave my heart to create my first Art. So I hope this story reaches all the readers who enjoy fantasy. And for that, I encourage you to leave a review. It will help me as an author and I promise to look at it.

"The Horn's Hoax is an admixture of genuine inventiveness with borrowings from other fiction of the genre."
