Eldon Thompson (born May 6, 1974) is a professional author and screenwriter known for his epic fantasy series The Legend of Asahiel, published by HarperCollins (Eos/HarperVoyager). His debut novel, The Crimson Sword, was released in 2005, followed by The Obsidian Key in 2006 and The Divine Talisman in 2008. After a ten-year hiatus, a spinoff series featuring the character of Kylac Kronus was published in 2018 by Cyndyn. The so-called Warder trilogy comprised individual titles The Ukinhan Wilds (Book One), The Blackmoon Shards (Book Two), and The Sundered Isle (Book Three).
As a screenwriter, Thompson is credited with helping to bring Terry Brooks's Shannara books to the attention of Warner Bros., which in 2007 optioned Thompson's feature adaptation of Brooks's second book in that series, The Elfstones of Shannara.
