A Brush with the Moon 

All Sophie ever wanted was a way out. Only a few weeks ago, she was a quiet art student with an overbearing mother and no higher dream than starting university and reuniting with her BFF, but destiny intervenes in the form of a fox bite.
If being attacked by a rabid animal isn’t freaky enough, her new town has secrets. People are dying, and Sophie feels she is being watched. Then there’s the arrogant and annoyingly sexy Sebastian with his plummy accent and come-to-bed eyes creeping her out. She should stay well away, but then he does live in the spooky manor house, and curiosity is her middle name.

This book uses British spellings and contains language and sexual situations not recommended to be read by those under sixteen.

Due to reader demand, the Foxblood Trilogy is now part of the Fosswell Chronicles. The Foxblood Trilogy remains complete, but readers who enjoyed it can now continue to read more from the same world in Dragonblood.

roar

The Dragon’s Roar 

Men, women, sometimes even children, are accused of being related to the beasts of old and often, if not always, executed for such a vile crime.

And it is in the cold lands of Endrand that the young Alexander Hailstone discovers how unjust these accusations are and finds himself wandering beyond Aenir’s walls after witnessing the death of his mother.

He will realise that, perhaps, he was not wrongly accused after all.

Dark Promise 

Before her birthday, she finds out that the person that has been watching her, is her birth mother, Azura, who claims that both of them are fairies. According to Azura, the blue birthmark on Rylie’s face means that she is an Aurorian, a special fairy that will have great powers.

Azura tries to warn Rylie that dark fairies will be after her. Rylie’s birth father made a deal with Varwik, the king of dark fairies, that Rylie would belong to him.

When she turns sixteen, Rylie sprouts wings and notices facial differences. She will able to hide her appearance from humans, but won’t be able to hide from other fairies. Some fairies find out about her, and she is taken to Varwik’s castle, where she is to wed Kallan. Will Sierra find out how to escape her father’s dark promise?

I absolutely loved the Keegan Chronicle’s series, and I thought this cover was absolutely beautiful. I’m so glad the authors picked fairies to write about. I haven’t read many fairy books. The only other series I’ve even started about fairies is the ones by Aprilynne Pike.

I don’t know how Rylie/Oleander could deal with finding out that her parents weren’t really her parents and being a fairy. I did like Adam, but I definitely find Kallan intriguing. I guess I am rooting for Kallan, even though I do think Adam is nice.

Kallan just has a little something extra that I haven’t seen in Adam yet. I loved the descriptions of the fairy world, and all of the little piskies. I can’t wait until the next one! This was definitely a quick read. I was so upset when it was over. Hopefully, it won’t be too long of a wait for the next book.

“A very exciting dragon book… Refreshingly different from what is out there already!” — Erik Weibel (age 12), This Kid Reviews Books Blog

Ten-year-old Andy Smithson believes he is merely a kid too often in trouble with his overambitious parents–until his destiny as the Chosen One to break a 500-year-old curse is revealed. Swept away to the land of Oomaldee of medieval times, he discovers he must collect several ingredients for a magic potion to defeat the oppressive curse that plagues the land, the first of which is the scale of a red dragon, the fiercest of all dragon species.

No pressure, but it’s his skill alone that will save – or condemn – the kingdom forever.

lore

Warrior Lore: Scandinavian Ballads

The medieval Scandinavian ballads in this collection take the reader back in time into the fells and forests of the far north. They tell stories of champions and fighters, vikings, and trolls, drawing on Norse mythology and heroic legend. There are riddles, and there are appearances from Thor, Loki, Sigurd, and other figures from the myths of the Edda and from history.

Narrative ballads were part of an oral folk music tradition in Scandinavia, and were first written down around 1600, although the ballads themselves are older. These new English verse translations are mainly based on Swedish tradition.

All the ballads included are:
Widrick Waylandsson’s Fight with Long-Ben Reyser; Twelve Strong Fighters; Hilla-Lill; Sir Hjalmar; The Hammer Hunt; The Stablemates; Sven Swan-White; The Cloister Raid; Heming and the Mountain Troll; Heming and King Harald.

“A charming introduction to Scandinavian Lore.” — Sam Smith, in The Journal (once ‘of Contemporary Anglo-Scandinavian Poetry’)

“Plenty of axe-swinging violence. The narratives value the human virtues of cleverness and competition.” — Matthew Rettino, The Vinciolo Journal

“Resplendent with sweeping tales and shield-beating rhythm and meter.” — Liz Ratajczak Ratel

thief

The Heartbeat Thief

Haunted by a crushing fear of death, a young Victorian woman discovers the secret of eternal youth–she must surrender her life to attain it, and steal heartbeats to keep it.

In 1860 Surrey, a young woman has only one occupation: to marry. Senza Fyne is beautiful, intelligent, and lacks neither wealth nor connections. Finding a husband shouldn’t be difficult, not when she has her entire life before her. But it’s not life that preoccupies her thoughts. It’s death–and that shadowy spectre haunts her every step.

So does Mr. Knell. Heart-thumpingly attractive, obviously eligible–he’d be her perfect match if only he wasn’t so macabre. All his talk about death, all that teasing about knowing how to avoid it…

When her mother arranges a courtship with another man, Senza is desperate for escape from a dull prescripted destiny. Impulsively, she takes Knell up on his offer. He casts a spell that frees her from the cruelty of time and the threat of death–but at a steep price. In order to maintain eternal youth, she must feed on the heartbeats of others.

From the posh London season to the back alleys of Whitechapel, across the Channel, across the Pond, across the seas of Time…

How far will Senza Fyne go to avoid Death?

The latest in dark fantasy from Ash Krafton…It’s a little bit Jane Austen, a little bit Edgar Allen Poe, and a whole lot of stealing heartbeats in order to stay young and beautiful forever…

ivy

Ivy’s Tangle 

Ivy’s Tangle is the first book in the Legend of the White Sword series.

I’ve always been intrigued by old houses and thought it would be fun to explore one, so that aspect of this novel was a lot of fun. The Inn reminds me a lot of Biltmore Estate (a house in NC), which I’ve toured before. I’m not sure if this Inn is supposed to be quite that big, but it’s what I imagine.

The characters and mystery throughout the story were fun and kept me interested from beginning to end. It felt more like a setup for the next book than an entire standalone story, although I wasn’t disappointed with the ending. Most of the first half or so was leading up to the big reveal toward the end. Jack has stumbled into a mystery far bigger than even he could have imagined. And Ivy, the odd cute girl staying over the summer, is right in the middle of it all.

Jack is the first person narrator of the story, so you have to pick up things and piece the story together from his observations. Sometimes the things that he overlooks can be important, and as a reader you will figure things out before he does. At times I felt that Jack was a little too gifted in certain aspects, picking up new skills almost without trying, but he was well written and flawed enough that I didn’t mind overly much.

The story revolves around a mystery with fantasy elements that become more apparent as the story progresses. As the first novel in a series, I think this was a great read. Again, it’s not a perfect standalone, but that is not its purpose. It’s just the beginning of a new fantasy adventure that middle grade and young adult readers will enjoy. I highly recommend picking up this authors books, you won’t be disappointed.

The Forever Man 1

Normally $3.99 now FREE for a limited time only! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by British Fantasy Award Winner & New York Times Best Seller, Michael Marshall-Smith.

For fans of – Game of Thrones, Wool, Blade Runner, The Hobbit, Stephen King, David Gemmell and Robert J. Crane.
The world, as we know it, has ended.

One man stands resolute. A man who has been trained in the savage arts of war. A man who lives his life according to a creed. A simple man who wants none of the power thrust upon him. This man is Marine Sergeant Nathaniel Hogan, seconded to the American Embassy in London and, although he does not know it, he is – The Forever Man.

The first pulse occurred in the old calendar year of 2022. A sequence of gigantic solar flares created a series of massive electromagnetic pulses that stopped the heart of our modern world and returned us to the DARK AGES. Tens of thousands died within the first few hours as airplanes fell from the skies, hospitals ceased to work and every form of modern transportation ground to a halt.

Within days the death toll had reached the hundreds of thousands. Fires raged unchecked through the cities, water supplies ran out and survivors turn on each other as mob rule surpassed all else.

And Nathaniel finds that he has been changed by the huge amounts of Gamma radiation in the solar flares. They have enhanced his natural abilities, giving him increased speed, strength and healing. Indefinitely extended his life span and enabling him to be able to draw on the power of the solar flares to create magik.

But even The Forever Man was not prepared for what happened next, as the ongoing flares tore a hole in time and space, creating a gateway through which ‘they’ appeared. From the realms of fantasy came the orcs, the goblins and, leading them all – the Fair Folk.
Were they here to help – or to conquer?

The ultimate Dystopian superhero.

Craig Zerf has gotten serious! This is the first in his MAMMOTH new Heroic fantasy. A true Epic dystopian fantasy that covers hundreds of years of man’s dystopian existence under the yoke of the Fair-Folk.

Impossible Paradise

Pioneer or Heretic? The world’s future hangs in the balance.

An incredible pulp steampunk adventure.

Captain Reinvo is ordered to take a prototype iron-sided steamship on its first voyage. The simple cargo run turns deadly when a storm drives the ship so far off-course the crew is sure they’re going to fall off the edge of the world. Reinvo fights to save his crew, only to discover a place that shouldn’t exist and which may yet get them killed as heretics.

If you like steampunk with elements of fantasy, speculative science-fiction, and thrilling tales, then you’ll love the fantastic serial adventures of the Endless Horizons Sagas, written in true homage to the pulp science-fiction classics.

Steampunk is a new genre for me. I so enjoyed the author’s “Threads” trilogy, that I had to give it a try. The story centers around a one-of-a-kind ship (designed by a lady engineer whom I am very much looking forward to meeting in the next part) that gets blown far and away off course and our hero, Captain Reinvo, is trying all he can to save the ship and as many crew members as possible. When finally they make land, questions abound. Where are they and who are the people living here? Friend or foe? If they make it back to their home port, how will they explain where they’ve been? There is plenty of action and a good start on the development of characters that I expect to see more of. It is an excellent lead-in to what I expect will be a great series!

Necromancer Awakening

The New Adult Fantasy Bestseller that reached #1 in the UK and #3 in the United States (2014).

“Knowledge in the absence of wisdom is a dangerous thing.”

Texas archaeology student Nicolas Murray has an ironic fear of the dead. A latent power connecting him to an ancient order of Necromancers floods his mind with impossible images of battle among hive-mind predators and philosopher fishmen. When a funeral service leaves him shaken and questioning his sanity, the insidious power strands him in a land where the sky kills and earthquakes level cities. A land where the undead serve the living, and Necromancers summon warriors from ancient graves to fight in a war that spans life and afterlife.

If Nicolas masters the Three Laws of Necromancy, he can use them to get home. But as he learns to raise and purify the dead–a process that makes him relive entire lifetimes in the span of a moment–the very power that could bring him home may also prevent his return. For the supreme religious leader, the Archmage Kagan, has outlawed Necromancy, and its practitioners risk torture and execution.

As warring nations hunt Necromancers to extinction, countless dead in limbo await a purification that may never come.

Nicolas’s power could be his way home…

Or it could save a world that wants him dead.

Xandra Illuminata Smith has lived for the last three years with ghosts as parents but her life gets even stranger after her seventeenth birthday when she finds out that her mother is actually a Witch in hiding and her biological father, whom she knew nothing about, is a Fairy and King of the Fae realm.

Xandra is the first Witch Fairy to be born in thousands of years for very good reason. No one should be able to control that much magic and Xandra was never meant to be born at all but her mother has managed to keep her hidden away until now.

The Witches want her dead and the Fairies want her blood, for only her blood will reopen the gateway to the Fae realm and allow them back into this realm to take revenge on humans and Witches alike for having banished them hundreds of years ago.

Xandra has very little time to learn how to use her powerful Witch and Fairy magic that has been bound since her birth while running from the Fairies who managed to jump realms and want to take her blood to set the others free. She needs someone to teach her and her parents enlist the help of one powerful Fairy who claims to want to keep the realms closed to each other. He will help keep her safe and alive as she learns, at least that’s what he says…

Moth

That was a long time ago.

The dance has died. The world has fallen still. We float through the heavens, one half always in light, one half always in shadow. Like the moth of our forests, one wing white and the other black, we are torn.

My people are the fortunate. We live in daylight, blessed in the warmth of the sun. Yet across the line, the others lurk in eternal night, afraid… and alone in the dark.

I was born in the light. I was sent into darkness. This is my story.

The Grimm Chronicles, Vol. 1

Now the characters of the Grimms’ stories walk among us. With every day that passes, they grow more evil. They are the Corrupted, and only a hero can stop them.

For 18-year-old Alice Goodenough, that means taking precious time off from her summer vacation. In addition to volunteering at the local library, Alice must stop the Corrupted who are now actively hunting her down. With the help of her magic pen and her trusty rabbit friend, the world has suddenly gotten a lot more complex. The Corrupted are everywhere, and only Alice can see them for what they truly are.

This book contains the first 3 episodes of the critically acclaimed series:

Episode 1: Prince Charming Must Die!

Alice Goodenough has been chosen to be the new hero, but not before undergoing a test to see if she’s worthy. Shaken, confused, Alice discovers that her weapon is a magic fountain pen and her ammunition is her mind: whatever she can draw, she can create. With the help of a rabbit friend, Alice must learn the ways of the hero and discover the truth about her frightening dreams: who is the terrible creature feeding on its victims at night?

Episode 2: Happily Never After

Alice’s nightmares have begun to grow more real. Terrifying man-eating rats are plaguing the city of Chicago, and it’s up to Alice to figure out a way to stop them. But before she can do that, she’ll have to face off with an even more dangerous enemy sent to kill her.

An enemy that has killed heroes before …

Episode 3: Revenge of the Castle Cats

After being rushed to the hospital, Alice Goodenough finds herself trapped in the worst dream imaginable: a horrible monster is hunting in the darkness, searching for its next victim: Alice. It will stop at nothing to kill her.

And that’s not the worst of it. All across the city, people are growing more addicted to Castle Cats, a smartphone game created by Grayle Incorporated. And it’s not just a game. The more you play, the more it controls you. Soon, Alice learns that the dwarfs who run Grayle Incorporated are watching her everywhere she goes, using human beings to spy on her.

There must be a confrontation. Sam Grayle and his brothers have to be stopped. And Alice is going to need help.

hy

The Hybrid 

Ari, needs to regain her late mother’s crown. But, first must complete a series of trials. Little does she know, she’s fighting for her life. Given, only 7 days to prepare, Ari is not only fighting against her inner darkness that is trying to consume her, she now has an unknown enemy that keeps trying to kill her.

Ari doesn’t know who she can trust, when she can’t even trust herself. Ari does the one thing she knows she must do to survive; by forging herself into the weapon she was born to be.

I found The Hybrid to be an exciting and action-packed story. Ari is a likeable and realistic protagonist. I really enjoyed her relationship with her best friend (their banter was realistic and hilarious at times) and her interactions with Julius were always a treat to read. The author’s overall idea (the daughter of the god of war) was a unique take in an over-saturated supernatural genre book market. The book features a strong and engaging cast of characters, and the author’s descriptions of the surrounding world and settings really draw the reader in. Fans of YA, paranormal, supernatural and action genres are sure to find a new favorite author in Venus Morales.

The Foul Mouth and the Cat Killing Coyotes

King Henry Price, honored and learned graduate of the Institution of Elements, has settled back into his normal life, running his Artificer shop, creating new designs, selling old ones, and ignoring the occasional explosion when testing goes haywire. He’s been minding his own business…only when he happens across a bunch of bullies picking on a woman, he can’t resist the opportunity to smash faces, can he?

King Henry never expected the bullies would be part of the Coyote Nation, he never expected that he could be starting a war, and he surely never expected one of his lost sisters would be on the other side.

Subnormal: Great Britain as a Dystopian Society

Synopsis:

Imagine a utopia where every person has a purpose and not a single life is wasted.

Britain has become a hive-like world, with even the weakest and most vulnerable playing their part in the nation’s transformation. Crime is low, employment high.

But all is not quite as it seems. Though the revolution was quiet and bloodless, countless lives have been torn apart before our very eyes. Whilst the silent majority are mysteriously duped into collaboration, dissenters are ignored or punished. Democracy, civil liberties and equality are replaced by corruption, discrimination and segregation.

Paul, who has Asperger’s Syndrome, knows slavery in the Zone is intrinsically unnatural. His first personal rebellion at Industrial Zone Four is crushed and he is forced to suffer alone for years in silence. Until his younger brother, Tommy, is also declared “subnormal” and sent to the Zone following an accident.

Allied with a handful of fellow Zoners and free-thinkers from the outside world, the brothers defy the powers-that-be. Can they beat the odds and restore to the British people a freedom few can remember?

lokk

The Book of Lokk: Death’s Keep 

This is the Book of Lokk.
—————————————–
The city of Kartos is a dark, cruel place, and its winding streets lie within the Black Temple’s great shadow. The Devout, the priests of the temple, rarely leave its towering walls, but when they do it is only to collect the dead or to lead the city’s condemned back to the dungeons.

And those who enter do not return.

It is common knowledge among the Kartosi that the Temple is to be avoided at all costs, and even the corrupt upper caste of the city bows to its will. Lokk, a young thief oblivious to the machinations of the Temple and its puppets, is about to enter a world where evil knows no bounds.

The world itself is a harsh and dark one where the life of an orphan boy matters very little.

The hungry orphan opening is as stark as Dicken’s Oliver Twist. The world is itself is dark, gritty, and heinously evil. When Lokk gets in trouble, the tension is palpable because the punishments are so harsh.

I really liked this book, and each volume in the series is equally as good if not better.

The world, as we know it, has ended.

One man stands resolute. A man who has been trained in the savage arts of war. A man who lives his life according to a creed. A simple man who wants none of the power thrust upon him. This man is Marine Sergeant Nathaniel Hogan, seconded to the American Embassy in London and, although he does not know it, he is – The Forever Man.

The first pulse occurred in the old calendar year of 2022. A sequence of gigantic solar flares created a series of massive electromagnetic pulses that stopped the heart of our modern world and returned us to the DARK AGES.

Tens of thousands died within the first few hours as airplanes fell from the skies, hospitals ceased to work and every form of modern transportation ground to a halt.
Within days the death toll had reached the hundreds of thousands. Fires raged unchecked through the cities, water supplies ran out and survivors turn on each other as mob rule surpassed all else.

And Nathaniel finds that he has been changed by the huge amounts of Gamma radiation in the solar flares. They have enhanced his natural abilities, giving him increased speed, strength and healing. Indefinitely extended his life span and enabling him to be able to draw on the power of the solar flares to create magik.

But even The Forever Man was not prepared for what happened next, as the ongoing flares tore a hole in time and space, creating a gateway through which ‘they’ appeared. From the realms of fantasy came the orcs, the goblins and, leading them all – the Fair Folk.
Were they here to help – or to conquer?

The Pharaoh’s Cat

The cat immediately captures the attention of the seventeen-year-old Pharaoh, making him laugh for the first time since his parents’ death, and is brought to live with him at the royal palace.

The cat also becomes friends with the High Priest of the god Amun-Ra and seeks his help in solving the mystery of his human powers and the supernatural manifestations that later plague him. He has an enemy in the Vizier—the Pharaoh’s uncle and the second most powerful man in Egypt. The Vizier hates him for himself and even more for his relationship with the Pharaoh.

The cat participates in festivities at the royal palace, developing an insatiable appetite for good food, wine, and gossip. He later accompanies the Pharaoh on a trip through his kingdom, all the while renewing the Pharaoh’s ability to enjoy life and inspiring him to become a stronger leader.

Between the cat and the Pharaoh a bond of love gradually forms which will determine Egypt’s destiny.

The Pharaoh’s Cat imaginatively blends Egyptology with comedy, drama, and even time travel–the cat and the High Priest will meet Elena, a resident of the twenty-first century and the daughter of a renowned Egyptologist.

Maria Luisa Lang was born in Rome and lives in New York City. She has a degree in art history and is an amateur Egyptologist. The Pharaoh’s Cat is her first novel. She has almost completed a sequel.

The small, picturesque town hasn’t changed since she visited four years ago, with one exception – the presence of a handsome, mysterious boy named Frost. Despite warnings from her grandparents and friends to stay away from Frost, Anastasia can’t deny their attraction, and the more time they spend together, the deeper in love they fall. Unfortunately, Frost has a secret that is beyond Anastasia’s wildest imagination, and she soon finds herself in the midst of a supernatural legend that has haunted Cedar Falls for years.

Can Anastasia and Frost’s love really overcome anything, or are their fates much darker?

A journey that spans the entire continent of Askabar

An unknown man regains consciousness in the back of a merchant’s wagon only to discover he has no memory of who he is. He discovers the merchants are Goblins, who are transporting him to Havenbrook under the assumption he is a nobleman. Given his extravagant armor and decorated two-handed sword, they are hoping for a reward for his return. Once in Havenbrook, the Lord urges him to seek out an old and mysterious wizard who lives at the foot of the mountains to the east, and sends his daughter with him as an escort and guide.

To the north, a malevolent force is building, gathering the resources necessary to reap destruction across all of Askabar. The sinister figure is on a mission to release his master from the prison he has been bound to for over a thousand years.

Travel into a world unlike any other, a world teeming with creatures the size of planets, parasites that can lay waste to entire civilizations, and mysterious energy sources that can decay the lifeforce of stars. What starts as only a whisper in the darkness, grows into a tale of epic proportions.

“[Phantasia] is a sprawling fantasy epic mixed with science fiction elements, and a fantastic set of characters. It echoes shades of Dune and Lord of the Rings, but at the same time is its own story with a unique voice, setting, and plot. The author doesn’t try to hide his use of common tropes, and instead, puts a unique twist on each of them.”

nerve

Nerve

I do wish that there had been a little more tension in some of the scenes, especially at the climax. It felt a little rushed, and I really wanted to have more of something, especially since these characters were so important throughout the story. I did enjoy the epilogue, and felt like the ending was realistic. The romance in the book is fun as well, watching as the main character learns that many of her presumptions regarding humans were incorrect. Again, I did want a little “more”, not meaning explicit content, but emotional.

All in all, a very good read! It kept me interested, especially during a time in my life where I don’t get a lot of time to myself to read.

Imagine the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo meets Betty Crocker.

That’s Pierce in a nutshell.

Pierce has been on the run for two years from the man who held her captive in a vampire compound for almost a decade. Life on the run would be a lot simpler if she didn’t suffer from several social disorders and ‘quirks,’ have a ten-year-old brat in tow, as well as have two characters from a 1945 classic film living in her head and guiding her at every turn.

“Las Vegas author J. C. Mells mixes insanity and urban fantasy in her novel “Pierced.” Pierce’s head is home to the mother-daughter duo from the 1945 film “Mildred Pierce.” But schizophrenia is a minor challenge compared to others.” Ginger Meurer, Deputy Editor, Las Vegas View Newspaper

“I highly recommend this for any UF fan, but there are some really dark parts to this book.  I will definitely grab any and all future books in this series! ”  and “5/5  Awesome Awesome Awesome book!”   Almost Faemous.

“Action, adventure, mystery, fantasy, suspense, it is all here. Wonderful and completely and with a raw brutality that sucks in the reader, keeping you on the edge of your seat and drawing you into a world so very like our own, and yet so very strange. The depths of mental illness (or something similar), the terror of living on the run, hallucinations and a really good recipe for steak and kidney pie…I highly recommend you take a chance on Pierced. You are in for a book of depth and character I haven’t seen since, well, I can’t really remember off the top of my head.”   So I Read This Book Today.

“As I sit down to write this review I find myself still in a book coma. My brain can’t seem to move forward. HOLY SNICKER-DOODLES what a book! I am completely blown away by Pierced.”  Jeep Diva

“Mells also does a wonderful job with her world-building. We get a full understanding of the supernatural and human aspects of the world and some of the history of what Pierce has had to go through in her short life.”  Mad Hatter Reads

I loved the book and the story which was adventurous filled with tons of emotions” Bestselling Paranormal Author Lilian Roberts

One woman torn between two worlds… Can she make peace with her enemy, holding the key to her only chance of saving her mind-merging species from total annihilation?

Halfling Sula – one of the last survivors of her kind – lives in hiding, searching for others of her kind. With not just her own life but her whole species’ held precariously within her hands, she feels the weight of her responsibility.
As loneliness and alienation slowly engulf her, an attractive young human, Felix, enters her world and she is torn. Should Sula trust him? Can she afford not to?
Sula’s life becomes further complicated when she meets the other last comyenti and is forced to make a decision. Follow her head or her heart?

‘Call Off The Search’, Book One in the supernatural fantasy Comyenti Series, follows Sula as she fights for her family, her female lover, her hopes, her freedom and the very existence of her species.

*“A fantasy novel that boldly goes where most works in the genre dare not tread.” – Reader’s Digest

*“I have read more fantasy books where shapeshifters are portrayed, but this is the first book that I’ve come across that dealt with a unique way of merging minds to gain animals skills without having to change shapes!” – Book Girl

*“Not only a brilliantly written fantasy but I loved how there were interesting views added throughout that make you think. The ending – love a good hook that intrigues you for book number 2!” – Author Devika Fernando

The dramatic sequel, ‘Children Of The Sun’ is also out on e-book and in paperback.

Also look out for ‘The Comyenti Series Book Bundle’ which contains the two first full length books at a special price.

True of Blood: Kallen’s Tale

***** Reader Message *****
True of Blood: Kallen’s Tale is meant to be read after True of Blood. This is a companion book that gives the reader a look into Kallen’s mind when he meets Xandra. In an effort to avoid as much redundancy as possible, I have condensed some scenes, focusing less on Xandra and more on Kallen. This could cause confusion if this book is read first.
I hope you enjoy this look into Kallen’s world.

tri

Manannan Trilogy

Box Set of three best-selling novels.

Travel back in time to an age where knowledge was magic and people roamed the seas looking for a better life.

Praise for Manannan Trilogy:

The historical details are well-researched and the mood of the novels reflect the superstitions and hardships of the time. The characters are engaging and believable, and Ms McGrath really makes the reader care for them. These stories will stay with me for a while.

Elizabeth

I didn’t want it to end.

Ember

“He came in a long prowed boat, sea mist trailing after him like a swirling cloak.” This, the first sentence of Michele McGrath’s Manannan’s Magic, told me that I was going to read something just a cut above the average. The Manannan Trilogy is a series of three historical romances set in the Isle of Man at the time of the Viking settlement and incursions.

M Robbins

These three novels follow the fortunes of a family, Manannan, his daughter, Niamh, and his granddaughter, Emer. All three possess the ability to see into the future, which leads them into strange adventures.

˃˃˃ Manannan’s Magic

Fantasy winner UK Authors Opening Pages Competition 2008

˃˃˃ Niamh of the Golden Hair

“But who am I? What am I? Why does any mention of my father arouse such fear?”

“Because you’re a witch, like your father and his mother before him.”

Terrified of her father’s powers if she comes to harm, Niamh’s uncle arranges a marriage for her far away from her family home but she never arrives.

˃˃˃ Emer’s Quest

Emer has inherited her grandfather Manannan’s ability to dream about future events. Foreseeing that her father, Olaf, will be shipwrecked on Staffa, Emer tries to stop him sailing but she is too late. Persuading her friends to go after him, they rescue one of his companions but Olaf has already been sold as a slave. A trader, Atli, discovers Emer’s ability to dream and promises to rescue her father if she will marry one of his sons and use her gift for the good of his family.

key

Keys to the Coven

To become a demon, you must die in complete and utter despair. Three hundred years ago, Max passed that test with flying colors and joined the afterlife resolving never again to have innocent blood on his hands. Now Max has been given the job of breaking a young witch’s family curse. But what she doesn’t know, what Max can’t bring himself to tell her, is that completing his mission almost certainly means her death.

When Felicity Woodsen inherits her mother’s coven, she learns each firstborn Woodsen daughter must become the consort of an evil-arch demon. Felicity’s only hope is to ally with the mysteriously charming Max. But is saving her body from one demon worth risking her soul with another?

Roxashael became a demon when his Roman captors sent his family, one by one to be devoured by lions. The lesson was clear: power is good; lots of power is better. Two-thousand years later, Rocky has power. He’s purchased hundreds of souls, and he’s created the Minsk Homunculus, a magic artifact that, by binding a human witch as his consort, turns him into an arch-demon and places him above the goody-two-shoes laws of karma. Unfortunately, Rocky made a mistake. He fell in love with Felicity’s mother and in a moment of weakness promised to give up his demon-consort charm. Now Felicity’s mother is dead, the Minsk Homunculus is slated for destruction, and Rocky’s power as an arch-demon is about to end. No demon can break a promise. If Rocky refuses to give up the Minsk Homunculus, he’ll become the lowest, most abject slave in Hell.

But then, why break promises when they’re so easy to corrupt?

★★★★★
“Cinderella meets American Werewolf in Paris.”
 
★★★★★
“You’ll never guess how the fairy godmother is portrayed and how the shoe gets put into the story but I can guarantee that you will be shocked; especially the step-mother and step-sisters. I will tell you, it has more of the Grimm feel to it than a Disney feel.”

An alpha wolf fighting a powerful curse . . .

The werewolf prince Etienne is turning into a human. A fierce and loyal pack, Etienne and his family have protected their kingdom with tooth and claw–literally–for hundreds of years. Unfortunately, the spell of a well-meaning witch is slowly stealing the beast from inside him. Only the bite of a cursed werewolf–one who was not born with the beast inside–can save him from losing everything. He has no time for anything that will not lead him to a cure for the curse. Not even the beautiful maiden whose gentle nature soothes his soul even as she tempts him into primal pursuits of an entirely different nature…

A maiden enslaved by her stepfamily, who dares to reach for more . . .

Loupe lives in terror. Terror of the bloodthirsty stepfamily who treats her like a slave, and terror of the beast trapped inside her. Bitten by a werewolf while dealing with the illegal gains of her stepfamily’s poaching, Loupe’s dreams of a strong husband who would take her away from her servant-like existence are over. A woman who becomes a mindless beast on the night of the full moon has no place in a marriage bed. Not even if that bed belongs to a prince with the manners of royalty and the hungry eyes of a wolf.

Will Loupe overcome her fear of the monster inside her in time to save Etienne from a mortal fate? Or will her bloodthirsty stepmother and stepsisters hunt them down and destroy them both?

dark2

Darkness Descends

Sure, her lover is a ghost, but in Savannah, that’s not what’s unusual.

What is strange is the influx of supernatural creatures roaming the streets looking to start trouble—with Denny specifically. To fight back against the wave of demons, she racks up one unusual companion after another––from ghosts to witches to demons.

In her search for answers to her supernatural problem, Denny discovers that she is a born demon hunter, and, no, she doesn’t have any choice in the matter. Okay, so being possessed by an ancient demon doesn’t exactly fit into her life plans, but somebody has to do it.

Denny must either accept the mantle of demon hunter or stand back helplessly as the dark forces destroy everything and everyone she’s ever loved.

At least she can always pick up her sword and chain whip to go kick some demon ass. After all, it is her legacy, right?

An earlier version of this book was published as Demon Hunter by Linda Kay Silva. The story has since been updated and re-edited. Learn more at http://www.AlexWestmore.net.

wild

Through the Wildwood

From the Author:

After I finished writing The Wardstone Trilogy, I still had several months to go before I would be released from prison. I did not want to lapse in my religious routine of penning three thousand words a day, so I didn’t. Book One – Through the Wildwood, is a fun and intense book that introduces a few of the series main characters. I have over a thousand pages worth of Vanx Malic and his curious group of companions sitting here in longhand. I will be publishing them in eBook format, about two hundred fifty pages at a time, over the next year and a half. In lieu of further sales pitching, I invite you to click the “Look Inside” icon on the books fantastic cover image and start reading.

Enjoy the journey, M. R. Mathias

The author keeps on surprising me with creative plot twists, compelling new characters and strong dialogue. It’s filled with vivid imagery and action/drama rich writing that really sets a thrilling tone throughout the novel. From beginning to end I had a fun time reading and really couldn’t have put this book down even if I wanted to. —  PipLou TOP 1000 AMAZON REVIEWER

“The author’s style is individual, but it has the flavor of a Tolkien novel, or possibly Robert Jordan. I detected a great amount of affection in his deliverance of the characters, and their progress throughout the story was handled well. I must say that Vanx is quite a likeable rogue, and the way that the story begins certainly grabs the reader, pulling them into the story whether they like it, or not.” — Kindle Review

“You’ve (Mathias) already achieved much, much more than so many people who like to think of themselves as writers.” — @Gollancz The Deputy Publishing Director of SF, Fantasy & Horror list of the Orion Publishing Group

The magic Mathias weaves is evident here and re-reading book one, after completing the series only demonstrates how meticulously he sets his stage, outlines in his characters, the manner in which the entire series will play out… keeps us eager to continue. He is a very skilled fantasy writer – be sure to follow the entire series. Some readers may have difficulty with the names at first, but remember this is fantasy and no easy common name would be suitable. Mathias knows exactly how to weave a spell that entraps us from book to book. — Grady Harp, Hall of Fame, Vine Voice Reviewer

“A classic coming-of-age tale in the high-quality tradition of Mark Twain, Stephen King, and The Sex Pistols.”

  3. “I admire Morton’s story-telling ability, his macabre descriptions and his dark treatment of the high school experience from a teenager with a terrible secret. There were moments that chilled me to the bone, but kept me turning the pages to follow Howard’s journey from outsider to anti-hero.” – JACKSONVILLE NAVIGATOR

man

The Forever Man 

Normally $3.99 now FREE for a limited time only! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by British Fantasy Award Winner & New York Times Best Seller, Michael Marshall-Smith.

For fans of – Game of Thrones, Wool, Blade Runner, The Hobbit, Stephen King, David Gemmell and Robert J. Crane.

The world, as we know it, has ended.

One man stands resolute. A man who has been trained in the savage arts of war. A man who lives his life according to a creed. A simple man who wants none of the power thrust upon him. This man is Marine Sergeant Nathaniel Hogan, seconded to the American Embassy in London and, although he does not know it, he is – The Forever Man.

The first pulse occurred in the old calendar year of 2022. A sequence of gigantic solar flares created a series of massive electromagnetic pulses that stopped the heart of our modern world and returned us to the DARK AGES.

Tens of thousands died within the first few hours as airplanes fell from the skies, hospitals ceased to work and every form of modern transportation ground to a halt.
Within days the death toll had reached the hundreds of thousands. Fires raged unchecked through the cities, water supplies ran out and survivors turn on each other as mob rule surpassed all else.

And Nathaniel finds that he has been changed by the huge amounts of Gamma radiation in the solar flares. They have enhanced his natural abilities, giving him increased speed, strength and healing. Indefinitely extended his life span and enabling him to be able to draw on the power of the solar flares to create magik.

But even The Forever Man was not prepared for what happened next, as the ongoing flares tore a hole in time and space, creating a gateway through which ‘they’ appeared. From the realms of fantasy came the orcs, the goblins and, leading them all – the Fair Folk.
Were they here to help – or to conquer?

The ultimate Dystopian superhero.

Craig Zerf has gotten serious! This is the first in his MAMMOTH new Heroic fantasy. A true Epic dystopian fantasy that covers hundreds of years of man’s dystopian existence under the yoke of the Fair-Folk.

The Unhappy Medium

When even the laws of physics let you down, the absurd, the ludicrous and the frankly impossible may be all you have left.

Dr Newton Barlow has everything a theoretical physicist could ask for – a glittering career both in the lab and on television, a beautiful wife, and best of all, the opportunity to promote his rock-solid certainty that supernatural and religious beliefs are nothing but complete and utter hokum.

But Barlow is about to take a tumble. Mired in accusations of fraud, incompetence and malpractice, Newton is cast out from the scientific establishment and ejected from the family home. With his life in tatters, he descends into a wine-sodden wilderness.

Then, after three lost years, Barlow is suddenly approached by his old mentor and fellow sceptic Dr Sixsmith with an extraordinary proposition, an offer that Newton simply cannot refuse. There’s just one small problem:

Dr Sixsmith is dead.

Thrown headlong into a new reality that simply shouldn’t exist, Dr Newton Barlow is about to come up against the best and the worst of human nature: tooled-up vicars, paper-pushing ancient Greeks, sinister property developers, a saucy rubber nun and possibly the most mean-spirited man ever to have walked the earth (twice).

From the dusty plains of Spain to the leafy vicarages of Hampshire, Dr Barlow will have to contradict everything he ever believed in if he wants to save this world – and the next.

Except Aspen.

While most people avoid the national parks because of the resident dragons, Aspen spends most of her free time in search of the feared and misunderstood creatures. For her, studying the dragons is a way to escape a painful past and avoid getting too close to anyone.

But even as she feels strangely drawn to the mysterious boy, she senses he’s hiding his own set of dark and powerful secrets.

When hikers start turning up dead in the park, everyone suspects the formidable predators. Unless Aspen can prove their innocence, every one of her beloved dragons is in danger of eradication.

Dorian’s Destiny

Dorian is a vampire that is not worldly. His character is not that of a dark predictor. He’s still pure at heart. Will his dark nature prevail? He is a vampire after all.

Thomas is a vampire to his true nature. He befriends Dorian and takes him under his wing. What’s his motive? I’m intrigued to find out his story next. He’s dark and forbidding and deviously sinful, yet scary as hell.

Meagan is a Nurse that’s compassionate and caring through and through. She comes into Dorians life and they collide to a destiny that’s unknown at the moment. Her heart is pure. How can they be together?

Josie is a best friend that’s a true nurturer. Her spirit is truly dedicated and how friends should be in life.

Together these characters develop into a wonderful story of beauty and they embark in battles of their own in life. The love story is exceptional sweet yet a hint innocence. It’s moving and wonderfully strange story rolled in to one.

The characters battle to find themselves and few are struggling at times to stay on the path that God has set for them. I can’t wait to see what’s next!

Magic to the Bone

Bruised, battered, but not even close to broken, Jade and her friends must reunite, and get ready to take out her psycho ex once and for all. Leveled up and wiser, Jade stands a chance this time.

As long as she takes out Samir BEFORE he turns into a god…

This is book seven in USA Today bestselling The Twenty-Sided Sorceress urban fantasy series.

After having a stroke and not able to speak for a while, reading on a tablet has helped me regain most of what I lost. This novel is also about the chance to regain some things that you lost through magic and perseverance. After losing her shop, and the brother of one of her friends, changing time is the sorceress’s trick to start. The best part of the story for me is that while she does the heavy magic, she does not do it alone. Accepting and even asking for help is difficult but needed by everyone and help comes from strange places. This was the last of my rehab books before I venture back to my familiar world. Five stars!

It felt like the end of the series. It could have been. Minimal loose ends, good guys win. Creative way to avoid destroying the world. But that one little loose end …. If it unravels, things could get bad. And the surest clue that things aren’t all nicely settled? There’s another book coming out this year! So we know all is not rainbows and unicorns. Maybe unicorns, but no rainbows. The leprechaun spent his money. So we know something scary is sure to turn up. But it’s not the cliffhanger book 5 was. This ending will not have you screaming in rage. It will make you reach for a cup of tea and some cranberry scones while you read it again.

More than a decade later, five of the eggs hatched. The dragons that emerged were small and weak. They kept to the shadows, working in secret to persuade people to do their bidding, offering magic as payment and reward. Years passed … and still we didn’t notice the evil growing in our midst.

The war began suddenly. Survivors called it the ‘apocalypse’—nine billion people killed in an afternoon.

Then the dragons revealed themselves, burning huge swaths of what remained, taunting and mocking and murdering the survivors.

Four leaders arose: The Wizard, the Dragon Rider, the Monk, and the Dragon Slayer. Allied with the rebel dragon, they waged war for years until they too were defeated, scattered, or killed.

When the war ended, only one dragon remained … but that single dragon was enough to plunge the world into tyranny.

In the absence of victory, they have settled into an uneasy stalemate – until a prophecy foretells of a child of power who will finally break the balance.

Wicked Sense: A YA Paranormal Romance 

Fall in love with a magical romance

Skye’s London coven sends her to Seattle’s Greenwood High to find the Singularity, an unusually gifted witch who may break the Veil and trigger a dangerous new era of witch-hunting. Things get complicated when Skye meets a charming new classmate, Drake. Skye’s job becomes even trickier when she clashes with Jane, an intimidating rival witch.

Drake falls for the mysterious Skye, but odd accidents, potion mix-ups, and the occasional brush with death kind of get in the way of romance. Once he discovers Skye is a witch, he goes to war for her, even though his only weapons are a nice set of abs and a sharp sense of humor.

Fighting off wicked Jane and the other dark forces hell-bent on seizing the Singularity’s immense power, Skye and Drake will risk everything to save the covens.

Going on a date has never been harder.

dark

Darker Things

No one had called him that in fifteen years.

Not since his days at the Agency. Not since he was trained to kill creatures that were supposed to exist only in nightmares.

Yet the teenage girl on his doorstep not only knows his real name, she claims she’s his daughter.

Before Lockman can learn how the girl found him, he’s attacked by a black-ops team of assassins. But these aren’t ordinary killers–they’re heavily armed vampires sent by his most hated enemy.

Forced on the run, Lockman protects his daughter from an onslaught of dark creations while searching for who betrayed him and why. The investigation leads him to Detroit, where he unwittingly sets a plan into motion that could trigger a paranormal apocalypse and cost him his soul.

Darker Things presents a new breed of urban fantasy, paced like a thriller and filled with gritty action. “Imagine if James Patterson wrote about vampires.” — Will Entrekin, author of The Prodigal Hour.

ellie

Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper

When a family contacts her to deal with a disturbing presence in the old mansion they’ve recently purchased, Ellie first believes it to be a typical, by-the-book specter, a residual haunting by a restless spirit. Instead, she finds herself confronting an evil older and more powerful than she’d ever expected, rooted in the house’s long and sordid history of luxury, sin, and murder. The dangerous entity seems particularly interested in her clients’ ten-year-old daughter.

Soon her own life is in danger, and Ellie must find a way to exorcise the darkness of the house before it can kill her, her clients, or their frightened young child.

“A brilliantly addictive, insomnia-inducing story following Ellie Jordan, a ghost tracker, who works a hazardous job investigating hauntings. Read before bedtime at your own risk!” -Alexia Purdy, bestselling author of the Dark Faerie Tale and Reign of Blood series

“Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper is both really fun and really creepy. It’s Ghostbusters meets The Dresden Files.” -Daniel Arenson, bestselling author of the Song of Dragons and Moth series

The Iron Sword 

Tess O’Connor has never fought in a duel, ridden a Fae steed descended from a dragon, or touched taebramh, the magical substance that gives mortals dreams. She has never faced down a garrelnost or traveled the hidden mysterious pathways between the mortal world and the realm of the Fae. She has never felt a magnetic attraction to a perilously handsome Sidhe knight with eyes as deep and impenetrable as the ocean. Tess O’Connor stopped believing in fairy tales as a child when her father died…but all that changes when she discovers that her best friend Molly is half-Fae—and has been summoned to the Unseelie Court by Queen Mab herself. The Queen of Night and Winter sends Finnead, one of her trinity of Named Knights, to escort Molly to Court, willingly or unwillingly. Mab believes that Molly is the fulfillment of a prophesy, the half-Fae child foretold to become the bearer of the Iron Sword, a legendary weapon that could mean the difference between victory and defeat for the Fae in their struggle against an ancient evil. While Tess quickly learns she is no match for the shadow spreading through the Fae world, she refuses to let her best friend face it alone; and as the first mortal in Queen Mab’s court in over five hundred years, she must use all her quick wit and tenacity to keep herself and Molly alive in the beautiful, dangerous Fae world as they hurtle toward the war that could destroy it…

aerisia

Aerisia: Land Beyond the Sunset 

Here in Aerisia, Hannah is believed to be the Artan, a legendary heroine prophesied to deliver Aerisia from the Dark Powers. Plenty of people, including the Simathe, a race of immortal warriors, and the Moonkind, people of the Moon, are willing to help her discover her true identity, but Hannah’s just an ordinary girl from Earth. She doesn’t have any latent magical abilities and she’s not the Artan. However, her allies aren’t seeing it that way. Neither are her enemies. In fact, Hannah’s life is in jeopardy nearly from the moment she arrives in Aerisia. And becoming the Artan may be the only way to survive…
________________________________________________

Also in the Sunset Lands Beyond trilogy:

Book 1 — Aerisia: Land Beyond the Sunset
Book 2 — Aerisia: Gateway to the Underworld
Book 3 — Aerisia: Field of Battle (Coming soon)

The Moonkind and the good people of the city of Laytrii at first don’t know what to make of Hannah, standing before the Council in jeans, running shoes and a tee-shirt. Could this indeed be the One foretold to lead their people to victory against The Evil? Many have their doubts, including the dark-eyed, immortal men who will serve as her warriors in the coming fight.

They are the Simathe, and their leader, High Lord Ilgard, with his bronzed, muscular body and flowing black hair, is charged with protecting her with his very soul.

This vow is soon put to the test as a pack of vicious drocnords burst from hiding in a field near the palace and threaten to kill Hannah. Ilgard, however, summons a troop of the Simathe and they beat back the creatures’ wild charge, allowing Hannah and her strong protector to escape to the city on the back of a racing stallion.

“We must now be Joined,” Ilgard announces firmly, but Hannah, fearing further separation from all the things she has known for all her young life up to this point, resists firmly. But her resistance, as they say, is futile and she is carried off to the High Lord’s home city of Treygon, where she begins the long task of donning her destiny.

One vivid strength of the author is her ability to paint a compelling word portrait of the beautiful land of Aerisia, making the reader feel as though he or she is there:

“On the opposite side of the palace, more fields quickly gave way to scattered trees, which, in turn, yielded to a vast, dense forest. And encompassing the entire vista — city, palace, fields and beyond — stretching as high and far as the eye could see, were great mountains, shimmering a bluish-purple sheen.”

It is this very gift for description of Aerisia’s fantastic landscape, as well as its people — from well-bred Moonkind to the wonderful Fairies of the forest — that bring this tale to life. And the characters, including the impetuous Hannah and the mysterious High Lord Ilgard, who dominate this YA standout, add color and plenty of realism to a fantastic storyline.

I give Aerisia five stars and recommend it to anyone who loves tales of other worlds and lands beyond the sunset. — Don Sloan, Top Amazon Reviewer

After struggling for more than two centuries to tame the inhospitable islands where they washed up, the descendants of the survivors of a lost passenger ship are now striving to tame a more substantial “Mainland” they have found.

For as long as mankind has been stranded, dragons have been their sworn enemies.

But no longer…

Sixteen year-old Jenka De Swasso wants nothing more than to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a King’s Ranger. But when he one day finds himself surrounded by vicious trolls, a young pure-blood dragon comes to his rescue and they become bond-mates.

Meanwhile, the goblins have a new king, Gravelbone, and have allied themselves with the tainted “mudged” dragons to drive mankind out of its lands. Setting his sights on a vast manmade wall, Gravelbone and his wicked hell-born Nightshade, seek to poison the entire human kingdom and enslave any survivors.

Jenka and his companion, a druida warrior named Zah, soon realize that they and their bonded dragons are mankind’s only hope for survival. Forced to defy their arrogant king’s wishes, the pair set out on a desperate quest to stop Gravelbone’s forces and save mankind from its terrifying fate.

Campion’s Choice: How to Take a Picture of the Future

Coins that have magical properties. Aliens. Scorpions. Attempted murder. Elvis alive and well and driving a moped. What more could you want? Mystery, adventure, fantasy? Look no further. Step right up and enjoy the show. This is Campion’s Choice.

Jack Campion was just an ordinary thirteen year old kid – well, maybe not that ordinary, not after the Dadster’s accident – so ok, ordinary or not, the last thing he was expecting was all that whooshy stuff in the air raid shelter.

And Tia Cole had a normal thirteen year old life – with her blind, piano playing mum and her irritating younger brother – and she was not expecting to end up, in a wood, fighting for her life against every animal that has ever wanted to eat a person.
If only Clamp hadn’t mentioned the Deathstalker. If only the Nomas had found the meteorite. If only Gidean St-George wasn’t such a pain in the neck. Things might have been different.

But they weren’t different. So expect the extraordinary – expect Aliens, magic coins, sabre toothed tigers and the occasional bit of walking through walls. That way you won’t be disappointed.

This is Jack’s story – just don’t tell Tia.

touch

The Touch

From Bestselling Paranormal Romance Author Lisa Olsen

Lexi Morgan has always had The Touch; the ability to pick up an object and ‘see’ its past. Doomed to wearing protective gloves at all times, she learned to accept it as equal parts gift and curse. When her brother in law Neil disappears, she’d rather tell her sister to celebrate than try to help find the jerk. But after her young niece vanishes as well, it’s time to put her gift to good use and help track her down, especially when handsome Detective Gabriel Ryan takes over the case. When the investigation leads them to the restless spirits of long dead children, they must work together to keep history from repeating itself before it’s too late.

Editorial Review

Lisa Olsen gives us a darker trip into the paranormal with her sophomore book, The Touch. Lexi has the gift of psychometry, the ability to read past memories of an object. She quickly becomes embroiled in a police investigation into her sister’s family which brings her into contact with Detective Gabriel Ryan, a face from the past. The third person POV allows for better access into the investigation, following Detective Ryan, and offers just enough insight into the crime procedure without becoming weighed down by it. Adding to the mix is the presence of ghosts, each with their own agenda. The Touch offers the quick, witty banter this author is becoming known for, while adding a fair amount of suspense and chills from the otherworldly characters.

And now, a nearly dead modern has been brought through the ‘door’ . . . this Emily none other than the bane of his existence–for, if she’s returned, so too will those who killed her before–the Lumynari.

On Unfaithful Wings 

“The next book in this series cannot come out soon enough for this reader. Not just my favorite Kindle book of the year, but one of my favorite books ever.”

“I loved this book.”

“Bruce Blake’s On Unfaithful Wings is a great urban fantasy novel. I love good character development in a story’s protagonist and Blake nails it with Icarus Fell. I found myself rooting for him from the get go and laughing out loud at some of his observations.”

“On Unfaithful Wings was an impressive first novel. All of the characters were interesting and engaging, but in particular the main character and his struggle to reconcile with his new identity/job.
This is one of those stories that stays with me long after I read it and I’ll be on the lookout for more from this author.”

On Unfaithful Wings (An Icarus Fell Novel #1)

To some, death is the end; to others, a beginning. To Icarus Fell, it should have been a relief from a life gone seriously awry.

But death had other plans.

Icarus doesn’t believe that the man awaiting him when he wakes up in a cheap motel room is really the archangel Michael, or that God’s right hand wants him to help souls on their way to Heaven. Icarus doesn’t believe there’s a Heaven, so why should they want his help?

But the man claiming to be the archangel tempts him with an offer he can’t ignore–harvest enough souls and get back the life he wished he’d had.

It seems Icarus has nothing to lose, until he botches a harvest and the soul that went to Hell instead of Heaven comes back to make him pay by threatening to take away the life he hoped to win back.

To save the wife and son he already lost once, Icarus will have to become the man he never was. Somehow, he will have to learn to believe.

“This is just, simply, amazing. Icarus is one of the best characters I’ve ever “met”, chock full of virtues and faults and doubts and worries and a simple HUMANNESS that comes through so clearly, I almost expect to run into him around the next corner.”

“Icarus Fell is a flawed man but a wonderful character. From the moment I started reading On Unfaithful Wings I was pulled along by this interesting character and wanting to know what would happen next.”

 

rise

Rise of the Valiant

The #1 Bestselling series!

RISE OF THE VALIANT is book #2 in Morgan Rice’s bestselling epic fantasy series KINGS AND SORCERERS (which begins with RISE OF THE DRAGONS, a free download)!

In the wake of the dragon’s attack, Kyra is sent on an urgent quest: to cross Escalon and seek out her uncle in the mysterious Tower of Ur. The time has come for her to learn about who she is, who her mother is, and to train and develop her special powers. It will be a quest fraught with peril for a girl alone, Escalon filled with dangers from savage beasts and men alike—one that will require all of her strength to survive.

Her father, Duncan, must lead his men south, to the great water city of Esephus, to attempt to free his fellow countrymen from the iron grip of Pandesia. If he succeeds, he will have to journey to the treacherous Lake of Ire and then onto the icy peaks of Kos, where there live the toughest warriors of Escalon, men he will need to recruit if he has any chance of taking the capital.

Alec escapes with Marco from The Flames to find himself on the run through the Wood of Thorns, chased by exotic beasts. It is a harrowing journey through the night as he quests for his hometown, hoping to be reunited with his family. When he arrives, he is shocked by what he discovers.

Merk, despite his better judgment, turns back to help the girl, and finds himself, for the first time in his life, entangled in a stranger’s affairs. He will not forego his pilgrimage to the Tower of Ur, though, and he finds himself anguished as he realizes the tower is not what he expects.

Vesuvius spurs his giant as he leads the Trolls on their mission underground, attempting to bypass The Flames, while the dragon, Theos, has his own special mission on Escalon.

With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, RISE OF THE VALIANT is a sweeping saga of knights and warriors, of kings and lords, of honor and valor, of magic, destiny, monsters and dragons. It is a story of love and broken hearts, of deception, ambition and betrayal. It is fantasy at its finest, inviting us into a world that will live with us forever, one that will appeal to all ages and genders.

THE WEIGHT OF HONOR (KINGS AND SORCERERS–Book 3) is now published!

“If you thought that there was no reason left for living after the end of the Sorcerer’s Ring series, you were wrong. Morgan Rice has come up with what promises to be another brilliant series, immersing us in a fantasy of trolls and dragons, of valor, honor, courage, magic and faith in your destiny. Morgan has managed again to produce a strong set of characters that make us cheer for them on every page.…Recommended for the permanent library of all readers that love a well-written fantasy.”
–Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (regarding Rise of the Dragons)

“[The novel] succeeds—right from the start…. A superior fantasy…It begins, as it should, with one protagonist’s struggles and moves neatly into a wider circle of knights, dragons, magic and monsters, and destiny.…All the trappings of high fantasy are here, from soldiers and battles to confrontations with self….A recommended winner for any who enjoy epic fantasy writing fueled by powerful, believable young adult protagonists.”

I Bring the Fire Part I : Wolves

In the middle of America, Amy Lewis is on her way to her grandma’s house. She’s being chased by a very bad wolf. Galaxies away Loki is waking up in a prison cell, strangely without a hangover, and with no idea what he’s done wrong — this time anyway. But he does know Thor is hiding something, Odin is up to something wicked, and there seems to be something he’s forgotten…

In this urban fantasy tale that is equal parts “Dresden Files” and “American Gods,” a very nice midwestern girl and a jaded, mischievous Loki must join forces to outwit gods, elves, magic sniffing cats, and nosy neighbors. If Loki can remember exactly what he’s forgotten and Amy can convince him not to be too distracted by Earthly gadgets, Earthly pleasures, or three day benders, they just might pull it off…

This first installment of “I Bring the Fire” is for anyone who suspects chaos and mischief makers might have their own redeeming qualities, and anyone who just wants a good fantasy romp through modern Earth, ancient Asgard, and beyond!

Jayne Sparks, a potty-mouthed, rebellious seventeen-year-old and her best friend, shy and bookish Tony Green, have a pretty typical high school existence, until several seemingly unrelated incidents converge, causing a cascade of events that change their lives forever. Jayne and Tony, together with a group of runaway teens, are hijacked and sent into a forest, where nothing and no one are as they seem. Who will emerge triumphant? And what will they be when they do?

Content Warning: Mild violence and significant foul language within. Meant for older Young Adult readers (age 15+).


How come I am just finding out about this book?! Never did I imagine that it would be so hard to put down. Elle Casey’s ability to tell a highly entertaining story with a combination of supernatural, fantasy, and contemporary elements took me for a ride.

Secrets

By Liz Schulte

While Olivia Martin observed life through her camera, the Abyss gazed back at her. She discovers mysterious men follow her around, people close to her are dying, and her dreams are no longer her own as she falls head over heels for a perfect stranger. A chance encounter leads to an obsession that could destroy everything she has ever known or loved. Olivia is about to find out there is a lot she doesn’t know and sometimes what you don’t know can kill you.

I absolutely Fell in Love with these characters from the start and could not put this book don. I f you have not read it you are missing out. I enjoyed everything about this book. I Like romance novels and Paranormal and this had both. I Love Holden and root for this couple in the series Liz Schulte threw in a few things I was not expecting but I ended up happy with it all. I met the characters in the Easy Bake Coven Series and wanted to know more about them, I really enjoyed this series.

The Guardian and Jinn Trilogy series are so interwoven I’m posting the same review for them all. It didn’t help that I read them back to back in less than a week. They were that good. I HAD to know what happened next. I hate to post yet another fan girl review. BUT I so love Liz Schulte’s writing style. She is my favourite type of romance author. Her characters are so well developed. There are moments you like them, dislike them, worry about them, wonder if they’re just S.O.S. or in another words people you actually know.  I’m kind of worried that I’m down to my last book published at this point, Sweet Little Lies. I don’t want to seem bossy or anything but now that she’s turned me into an addict I think it’s only fair that she feed my habit.

The Tale of the Vampire Bride

By Rhiannon Frater

Set in the 1820s, The Tale of the Vampire Bride is sure to thrill fans of vampires of literary past with its lush, gothic atmosphere and terrifying spectacle.

All Lady Glynis Wright ever wanted was the freedom to live life as she pleased, despite her aristocratic parents’ wishes for her to marry into wealth. But her fate is far more terrible than an arranged marriage when her family becomes prisoners to one of the most fearsome and powerful vampires of all time, Count Vlad Dracula.

Imprisoned in the decrepit castle in the Carpathian Mountains, Glynis’s new life as a Bride of Dracula is filled with bloody feasts, cruel beatings, and sexual depravity. There is no hope for escape. Vlad Dracula has elaborate plans to use her familial connections in England and she has become his favored pawn. Even more terrible is the bond of blood between them that keeps Glynis tethered to his side despite her deep hatred of him.

It’s only when Vlad Dracula takes Glynis to the picturesque city of Buda on the Danube River and she meets a mysterious vampire in the darkened city streets, does she dare hope to find love and freedom.

Shiftless

By Aimee Easterling

Terra is shiftless — a werewolf uncomfortable in her own animal skin.

A decade after learning to squash her wolf and flee the repressive village where she grew up, the packless ache still gnaws at Terra’s insides. But despite her yearnings, she struggles against being reeled back into her old life.

To Terra’s dismay, her father and half a dozen of his henchmen finally ambush her and demand her return. Yet they do offer one way out — hunt down her nephew Keith, teach him to shift, and bring the youngster back into the fold in her place.

Problem upon problem piles up as Terra strives to do her father’s bidding. The female shifter has hidden from her wolf for so long that she finds herself unable to change back into canine form, and she also realizes that her nephew is too good-natured to survive for a minute walking in his grandfather’s footsteps. Plus, there’s an alpha standing in her way who’s equal parts enticing and terrifying.

Will Terra be able to relearn her werewolf abilities — and overcome her morals — before her father steals away her hard-earned independence? And as that tantalizing alpha reels her in closer and closer, the question becomes — does she really want to stay away?

Don’t miss the first book in a series that has been described as a “good choice for Patricia Briggs fans.”

“Couldn’t put it down!” — Emily Monroe

“Exquisite worldbuilding underpins this tale a a young woman coming to grips with her werewolf nature, her self-chosen exile from her pack, and her new relationship with Wolf, the Alpha of another, much less traditional, wolf pack.” — C.

“This isn’t an instant smell and mate type shifter romance.…  This is the type of book for someone who enjoys wolf shifters, pack dynamics, a strong female lead, and the ability of that female to move on with her life and mature into who she was meant to be.  It is well plotted and written.  There’s a decent amount of shifter moments, no sex at all, which was different but welcome.  Overall a good read.” — Dan’s Wife

The Atomic Sea

By Jack Conner

What is the secret of the Atomic Sea? Toxic. Mysterious. Lightning shoots up from it. Just to breathe the air above it causes mutation. Now, in a time of world war, one man will be pressed to discover the truth and unlock the secrets of the Atomic Sea, or the whole world will be plunged into nightmare. Join readers around the globe in delving into the mysteries of this strange, somewhat steampunk-ish world.

A thousand years ago, the sea began to change, and the change spread.

Dr. Francis Avery is aboard a military whaling ship far out on the eerie Atomic Sea when a series of murders onboard propels him down a rabbit-hole of danger and terror. For years he’s tried to forget the deaths of his wife and child at the hands of the Empire of Octung, which has declared war on the world. He’s fueled his anger into helping the defense against Octung and drowned his sorrows with whiskey. Now he becomes aware of an Octunggen spy on the ship. When his friend is murdered, he has no choice but to track the killer.

As if this wasn’t enough, suddenly a mysterious woman is pulled from the toxic, lightning-wreathed depths of the Atomic Sea. Though weak, she’s alive and unaltered by the waters — which should be impossible. Her name is Layanna, and only she can stop Octung. As her doctor, Avery brings her back to health and in time grows to form an attachment for her . . . an attachment threatened when the spy who killed his friend is ordered to assassinate Layanna, too. Avery must save her and help her accomplish her mission or the whole world will fall under Octung’s shadow — and that of its enigmatic rulers.

That’s just the beginning. With Layanna and the grizzled whaler Janx, Avery will embark on an epic, globe-spanning quest through a strange world to save it from Octung and unravel the secrets of the Atomic Sea. Get ready for high flying action and excitement featuring zeppelins, romance, Lovecraftian horrors and more twists and turns than you can shake a stick at. Just keep your eyes on the water!

Her ability to project physical illusions has created the perfect vacation spot—a dark, isolated Alaskan hideaway where visitors can have their wildest fantasies come true.

Vivian knows the best performance requires perfect timing, but the powerful vamp is put to the test when she discovers a corpse in a locked guestroom minutes before the next arrivals. Always cool-headed, Rafe hides the body, convinced he and Vivian can find the culprit without disturbing their guests.

Juggling the increasingly outrageous demands of their customers while tracking a killer isn’t easy. Will their poking and prodding give them the answers they need, or will it uncover secrets Vivian would kill to protect?

The Complete Katon University Series

By Andrea Pearson

Nicole Williams has been chosen to lead a corrupt, anti-magic organization in a world revolution which will ultimately destroy all Aretes, including herself. But if she doesn’t do it, a curse placed on mankind long ago will certainly lead to everyone’s destruction.

The Complete Katon University Series is an adventure of mystery, politics, romance, and fantasy from start to finish.

I was initially reluctant to read yet another young adult series because they all seem to fall into the same category of boring lately. However, I got the 1st book in the series for free and said to myself, what the hay. I am thrilled to say I could not put it down and was very upset that it had ended. I clicked on my trusty Amazon link, typed in the author’s name and the rest is history. I love the characters and the way they seem to grow and mature with each book. There is some violence and I found my eyes watering a few times when characters passed that I had grown to like. I purchased all of the books that were available in a two day period. Now I have a bunch of ebooks waiting for me to read. I guess you are wondering why I have not given any names or even hinted at the plots? Well, I want you to read for yourself. I hate book reviews that practically tell the who story like a mini version of cliff notes so I refuse to do it. Just read them!

can serve as a death replacement agent, dying so others don’t have to. Although each death is different, the result is the same: a life is saved, and Jesse resurrects days later with sore muscles, new scars, and another hole in her memory.

But when Jesse is murdered and becomes the sole suspect in a federal investigation, more than her freedom and sanity are at stake. She must catch the killer herself–or die trying.

On Wings of Air

By J.L. Griffin

Reader Feedback:
“Griffin is an absolute master at world creation, as demonstrated in this first novel of what should become a classic fantasy trilogy.”
“Though very developed characters and distinct worlds it was easy to read and follow. The Book of Celesta is a beautiful gift in the story development. Unexpected twists kept me intrigued.”
“The story is captivating and follows theatrical structures both familiar and fantastical leading to an ending that is exciting, mysterious, and unexpected.”

*****

A true tale of high fantasy, On Wings of Air maintains many romantic elements, exploring real-world problems in a fantasy setting which appeals to a wide audience.

The prince of the Skychildren is exiled from the sky and enslaved by his enemies on the ground. In such circumstances, how is he to save his kingdom from a madman and the entire world from destruction by a powerful creature created by a goddess? And how could love for the princess of the Groundbreathers possibly enter into the picture? If you are a fan of Fantasy, On Wings of Air is for you!

*****

“Tierra, I don’t think you quite understand. If I found the Fenik, there would be nothing you—or anyone else here—could do to stop me from leaving. You said that Fenik was ‘a weapon of sorts.’ In fact, the Fenik is the ultimate weapon.”

“I should not need to remind you, but it appears that I must. We are Skychildren. We are not barbarians. We do not keep slaves, and we do not attack defenseless women in the streets. We are ruled by honor, not by our emotions. It is true that we have an eons-long dispute with Princess Tierra’s people. But we have no quarrel with her personally. In every way that matters, she is the same as we are.”

Francey

By Martin Dubow

Francey’s nightmares are a very real cause for concern. So graphic, and so terrifying have they become, that the next one could very well end her life. A frantic search for the key to their unraveling leads her through a maze of past lives straight into the teeth of a web of intrigue so insidious that it has remained undetected for three and a half centuries; whereupon the path stops dead in its tracks at the gravesites of Lady Susan Sebastian and Edward Delaney. What possible connection could Francey have with the seventeenth century star-crossed lovers? And if there is one, how is she to draw the answer from them? This chasm of impossible proportions must be crossed, for only with the resurrection of the dead, and their secrets drawn from deep within their souls, can the little girl be saved.

From the moment I started reading I was captivated by the characters and the intricate story woven around them. Reading this book was like enjoying a delicious seven-course meal with dear friends. Each course more delicious than than the last and the company warm and engaging.

I was never bored; always eager to find out what happened next; and I fell in love with the characters and felt their emotions along with them.

Like that delicious meal, this story ended very satisfyingly, leaving me with warm memories.

TWO HEADS TWO SPIKES

By Jason Paul Rice

Treachery and deceit run rampant in the Kingdom of Donegal.
A high stakes game of life and death erupts in a land of murder and manipulation. A triggering event in northern Donegal sets off a series of events with consequences to be faced around the world. Some seek a throne but most hunt the elusive Pearl of Wisdom for its magical powers and ability to summon dragons.

The story is told by multiple points of view that sweep you around a realm and beyond. The King’s son, a Queen, a Princess, members of rival families, several knights and a rogue warrior tell the tales of a lost kingdom, omitted from history. Good versus evil can appear transparent or blurred as motivations of revenge and soul inspired redemption entangle in a forgotten world of deception and drama.
This book contains adult themes like graphic violence, mild sex and mild swearing. It is recommended for a mature audience.

Politics, backstabbing(I suppose the two go hand in hand), murder, sex, heroes and villains all have a place in Book One of the Pearl of Wisdom Saga.  Rice has done a good job of creating a world where there is not really any obvious evil man in a black castle, or heroic virgin being pulled from her impending priesthood.  Good and bad look very similar and, as in real life, often depend entirely on your perspective and your motivations.–A Reading Machine

Great characters, solid writing, a great mix of reality and magic/fantasy…gods and demons, men and monsters…oh and dragons.  What more could you want?–I.B.R.

I love the way this author writes, it is so descriptive(without being overdone) and the world building just keeps going and going.  No info dumps, just layers of characters and storylines that create a fun adventure read that fantasy fans will enjoy.–I.B.R.

Dark Hope

In a last ditch effort to save her life and get out of her deal with the Devil, she sets out to solve Junior’s murder only to be taken prisoner by the four most dangerous immortal hell spawn alive.

Not to be out done, the Pagan Queen Mab, claims Claire for entering her realm uninvited. She has an old debt to settle with her brother the Devil. Taking Claire from him after losing her years ago is just icing on the cake.

Maggie for Hire

“If urban fantasy could be bottled, then this story is a shot-glass full of awesomesauce.” – Dark Side of the Covers Reviews

When monsters appear in Los Angeles, Maggie MacKay is on the job. No one is better at hauling the creepy crawlies back where they belong. No one, that is, except her dad, who disappeared in the middle of an assignment.

Now an elf named Killian has shown up with a gig. Seems Maggie’s uncle teamed up with the forces of darkness to turn Earth into a vampire convenience store, serving bottomless refills on humans.

The only hope for survival lies in tracking down two magical objects and a secret that vanished with Maggie’s dad.

WARNING: This book contains cussing, brawling, and unladylike behavior. Proceed with caution.

“Combine vampires, ghouls, and one whip-smart, take-charge heroine, and you have a recipe for success.  Kate Danley has served up a female lead character to fill the gap that the ending of Buffy the Vampire Slayer left in the world of sci-fi/fantasy.” – Twisting the Lens

As a fan of old school Janet Evanovich and all Charlaine Harris, I’m always looking for novels with a combination of fun and grit. Maggie For Hire has an abundance of both. Zipping you through a recognizable LA with some serious SciFi/alternate universe twists, Kate Danley has created a protagonist who is at the same time tough and quirky. She’s laid down a fantastic back story that she will be able to pull threads from for many novels to come (which I look forward to!) This is an excellent choice for those who have run out of Sookie Stackhouse novels, or simply run out of patience with Evanovich for regurgitating the same plot lines.

A Reaper of Stone

By Mark Gelineau and Joe King

A Lady is dead. Her noble line ended. And the King’s Reaper has come to reclaim her land and her home. In the marches of Aedaron, only one thing is for certain. All keeps of the old world must fall.

Elinor struggles to find her place in the new world. She once dreamed of great things. Of becoming a hero in the ways of the old world. But now she is a Reaper. And her duty is clear. Destroy the old. Herald the new.

“Excellent delivery, great plot filled with action, strong emotions, realistic characters and a kick-ass heroine made this a very quick read that leaves you wanting more – much more.” – BooksChatter

“A classic fantasy tale with a strong, admirable heroine and a nice emotional punch. Great start to an enjoyable new series!” – RL King, author of The Alastair Stone Chronicles

“If you want a short read to break up those long tomes then look no further; A Reaper of Stone has the essence of a traditional fantasy epic, full of adventure and beautiful, lyrical prose, in well under a hundred pages.” – Books by Proxy

“Captivatingly fast-paced… the fantastical realm of Aedaron is a delight to the senses, with heroes who are brilliantly fearless and villains that readers will love to hate.” – Charmed Reflections

“There was the utterly BEAUTIFUL language which the authors used to create a land of mystery and fantasy, of kings and his people, of loyalty and treachery and of new worlds and the old.. For fans of high fantasy, Sarah J. Maas’ ‘Throne of Glass’ series and David Eddings’ ‘The Belgariad’ series.” – Twin Reads

Root Bound

By Tanya Karen Gough

How far will you go to find your way home?

Emma and her father are always on the move, travelling from place to place as her father’s work demands. Their new home, however, is different. There’s a frightening woman who lives down the hall: she bears an uncanny resemblance to a witch. A mysterious light comes from her apartment, and a small boy seems to be trapped inside. School in this town is no happy place either, with an odd principal and a gang of girls who make tormenting Emma their special project. And strangest of all is the fact that there seem to be brownies – basement brownies, in the air vent in her bedroom.

Haunted by visions of her mother, Emma travels through the brownie burrow to the valley of Hades to visit with the goddess Ceres, following a series of clues that lead her across the sea of memory to the centre of the world. There, on an inhospitable rock floating in a sea of steaming lava, Emma must find a way to release her mother from the sea of memory and restore magic to both the brownie burrow and the human world above.

Azurite

By Megan Dent Nagle

There is magic in the earth.
It is a volatile force, forged from the energy of our planet’s birth and instilled into the spirit of every living being. It is what binds the world together–constant and unchanging, simply existing, unable to be created or destroyed.
Our progenitors named it Ithillium.
In the beginning, there were those who could maneuver Ithillium–sorcerers who Bonded to it. Used it. But now their legacy only survives by the grace of their legends. There are those who believe sorcerers still exist, but fear of persecution subdues them into silence.
And there are those, the anomalies, who are ignorant to the truth, but by their very existence prove what should have been told from the beginning. The last heir to the Samarian throne, Zora Winnser, is one of these people.
Resented by her Queen mother and denied her right of ascension by an archaic law, Zora is exiled to Cara, the southern most country in the Realm. It is these trials, and the appearance of an unlikely companion, that forces Zora to face the truth about herself, her abilities, and the world as she knows it.
Back home, an ancient foe looms on Samaria’s horizon, threatening to exploit the very heart of their wealth–the mines. Embittered with secrets of her own, Queen Evangeline foolishly leads Samaria into certain demise, through a war they cannot win. Throughout the country mutiny is unleashed, loyalties are tested, and all faith in Evangeline is lost.
In order to combat the evil invading her country, Zora must embrace her new identity as a wielder of Ithillium. But in a world where history is rewritten to accommodate an ideal, where lies become truth and truth become lies, will her country accept her back for what she was? Or hate her for what she has become.

Royal Deception

By Denae Christine

A Prince who can shift his arms into swords, a tutor who can shift his arms into wings, and a madman who wants to kill them both . . . .
Prince Symon is a living weapon. Literally. Descended from a diminishing line of royal blade shifters, thirteen-year-old Symon can shift his arms into swords. He thinks nothing can harm him until merfolk kill his younger brother.

What can Symon do when faced with things he can’t fight, like nightmares foretelling his death? Or over-protective parents? Or a kingdom on the brink of civil war? Torn between his uncle who persecutes animal shifters and his tutor who is a bird shifter, Symon feels powerless to protect his kingdom, let alone himself. When Symon and his best friend Lana are targeted by Claur, a foreign rebel determined to usurp the throne, magic alone will not save them.

Symon will have to choose whom to trust, and whom to kill.

Reader’s Favorite Review

Royal Deception is a fun, fantasy adventure full of action, lies, magic, and deception. Denae Christine did a nice job of creating memorable characters with really cool and unique features like changing their arms into swords and feathers. That was the coolest premise ever and I was so excited that the characters lived up to my expectations. They were well written in depth, and I enjoyed diving into this story and this magical world. It was very well described and the author was so descriptive that I felt like I was there and could easily see everything.

IN SITU

By David Samuel Frazier

When paleontologist Alexandra Moss ventures into the high deserts of Utah in search of a rare dinosaur fossil she gets more than she bargained for: she inadvertently discovers a highly intelligent species from the late Cretaceous that has been in hibernation since the great K-T asteroid disaster–and he is alive!

An absolute page turner, I couldn’t put it down! I fell in love with Alex and Mot from the start and the plot was like nothing I’ve ever read before! The twists and turns kept me on my feet. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a good read. The characters were witty and clever and I didn’t want to leave them when I turned to the last page. I can’t wait for the next book and a chance to fall in love with their world for a second time!!

Don’t start to read this book unless you can finish it in one sitting. The only negative comment is that I could not find the sequel

Literally couldn’t put this down So full of the What-ifs of real science … really a page turner I’d love a sequel!!!

I’ll admit that after I read a really depressing book perhaps my review is colored a bit. However I really really love this book . David present this world in stunning detail and the character development is excellent from start to finish . The book gives you hope throughout the whole story that perhaps it will end well . I will not give the end of the book away but it was very well done . It is too bad that this book will likely never have a sequel but I hope that in some way we get to see what becomes of our heroes in the future .

Missy the Werecat

By P.G. Allison

Missy the Werecat: Book I

When puberty brings on her first Shift, Missy goes into the mountains for two years until finally learning to Change back. She can Change from fully human in one instant to a mountain lion in the next. Everyone assumes her two year disappearance was because she’d been kidnapped by a sexual predator that she managed to kill. She keeps her werecat nature a secret. There is no pack, no pride of other werecats and no alpha. She’s a girl with fantastic abilities growing up and learning to do great things in today’s world, amongst humans. She only has her instincts to guide her and those drive her to train herself to extremes. She must control those instincts; dampening the wild predator is often necessary. Her raging hormones and enhanced senses require very strong controls; she explores what happens when those controls are relaxed.

  • Goodreads: over 300 five star ratings for this series! 
  • “I have enjoyed all of the Missy books.  There are 5 in all so far and it is always exciting.  She gets into lots of trouble but always seems to be on the good end of things at the end.  She is a strong heroine but also likes to help others so even when she is making trouble, it’s usually for the bad guys.  She is getting less shy and more developed as a person/cat as the books progress.  I love these stories!”  Amazon
  • “This is the first review for this series.  As soon as I read one, I wanted to read the next.  This is the best series I have read in years … I hope there are more books coming soon.  There are plenty of surprises in each book.”  Amazon
  • “Entertaining and fast paced.  I appreciate that we do not have to suffer through another characters’ angst over their abilities.  She is what she is and she celebrates it.  Her desire to be not just an officer, but the best possible officer she can be is laudable and refreshing.  Her drive to succeed at whatever she tries is not gender based – just Missy in action. I look forward to the next installment – after all, reading is for entertainment and this author provides it in spades!”  Amazon

The Sibyl

By Cynthia D. Witherspoon

The Mythological Series Meant to be Devoured.

Some tragedies are best left forgotten…

Eva McRayne was sure that Greek mythology was just that: a myth. Fairy tales told to children who loved a good adventure story.Yet, when she encounters a Sibyl desperate to free herself from the chains binding her to Apollo, Eva realizes that the fairy tales are more than fantasy.

They are her new reality.

How to describe The Sybil…..Well, the short answer would be awesome.

There are themes of Greek mythology in the story, which hooked me in from the word go. Due to Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series, we’ve seen a resurgence of interest in Greek mythology. But Witherspoon’s The Sybil takes those mythological elements and transmorgriphies them into something special, spellbinding, and lusciously preternatural. She uses the darker aspects of the Greek tales and masterfully weaves them into a contemporary concept of beautiful, unassuming, slightly sardonic woman who wants to get ahead in life and maybe find love as she does so. Then the otherworldly comes along and changes everything. It truly is a gripping ride.

There is a huge desire to connect with Eva McRayne from the minute you meet her. The thing that I like most about the protagonist is that she is remarkably human. She is not a paragon of virtue, nor is she a walking encyclopedia. She is a normal young woman who wants to meet a great man and have the ability to sufficiently pay her bills. In my opinion, its this very humanity that makes her ride even more enjoyable than it already is. Cynthia developed her, as well as the secondary characters, magnificently.

The Sybil is an amazing read, with definite re-read value. All I can say is that if this is how Book 1 is, I cannot wait to get my hands on Book 2!

A Demon Bound

By Debra Dunbar

Samantha Martin is an imp, enjoying an extended vacation from Hel. All she wants to do is drink beer by the pool, play mischievous pranks on the humans, and get her hot neighbor in the sack. It’s a relaxing break from her infernal home as long as she manages to avoid the angels, who won’t hesitate to execute her on sight.

But when her naughty hellhound lands her in trouble with the local werewolf pack, Sam is blackmailed into helping track and catch a killer. The steps she must take to appease the werewolves will put her right in the crosshairs of the angels. And with angels, there is no second chance.

I love the horror/fantasy/thriller genres, and am sometimes disappointed with what I’ve read, particularly if it’s a new or unknown author. Maybe the characters are one dimensional, the pace is plodding, or there are too many things going on, or I just don’t care what happens to anyone in the end. Well, this is not so with Debra Dunbar’s A Demon Bound! I was so pleasantly surprised that I got as wrapped up in Sam’s world as I did. For me, the true test of fiction is that I feel like I’m not necessarily part of the story, but am a close observer to everything going on, and I feel invested in seeing it through, and care what happens to the characters.

I wasn’t sure I would like Sam’s character, after all, she is a minor demon (or imp), but the name “imp” seems to suit her better, because it implies a more mischievous nature than an out and out evil one. Sure, she’s done her share of not so nice things in the past, and she’s a slumlord and all, but we can see she cares about humans more than she lets on. Plus she loves her hell-hound, horses and the hunk next door.

This novel is well-paced, the writing is really good, and the situations Sam finds herself in are…interesting. I finished it in a couple of late “reading into the night” sessions, because I was enjoying it so much. I have read the second book in the series, and it is just as good as the first, and I can’t wait to read the next one. I hope Debra has a lot more ideas, and Sam has a good long life in her, because I really want to see how she evolves, and enjoy more visits to her world.

Magic Times

By Harvey Click

Everybody wants a little magic—but just a little can do a lot of damage!

A young man not overly burdened with brains hitchhikes to Ohio in search of his runaway girlfriend, but he finds a lot more than he’s looking for. Soon Jason is chin-deep in a bizarre and perilous predicament involving a witch, a crippled magician, a sinister businessman, a mysterious stalker, and a book of magic that could bring about the end of the world.

Harvey Click, best known for his lurid horror tales, explores a different genre with this darkly comic coming-of-age novel. He mixes a tablespoon of black magic with a teaspoon of zesty sex, a sprinkle of savory satire, a dash of dire danger, a splash of spicy suspense, a pinch of pungent irony, a cup of coarsely ground comedy, and a full measure of sheer madness.

Horror master Harvey Click brings us a hilariously dark coming of age story in the comical magical hell known also known as reality–in Columbus, Ohio, 1979. Protagonist Jason leaves the hollers of West Virginia and heads straight for Ohio, like many before him, but instead of a normal college and capitol town he enters an occult maze full of shady characters, a demoness or two, some infernally hot sex, journeys to other dimensions and plenty of other wild adventures. He even reads a book, perhaps for the first time ever, and finds in those pages that “them was magic times”….. Magic indeed the hidden, just below the surface world of imagination, fantasy and diabolical surprises, as near as your next ride down the wrong–or right?–ride on the cosmic hitchhiker’s journey. Click takes us down some scary alleys, though as some prating Pollyanna once wrote about another great author, “Through all the blasphemies and obscenities of (his) tormented prose, one can perceive the sad but beneficent face of a man whose tender concern for human anguish transcends his vituperative imprecations.” Good stuff.

ALTDORF: The Forest Knights

By J.K. Swift

ALTDORF, a novel of The Forest Knights

A wild land too mountainous to be tamed by plows…
A Duke of the Holy Roman Empire, his cunning overshadowed only by his ambition…
A young Priestess of the Old Religion, together with a charismatic outlaw, sparking a rebellion from deep within the forests…
And an ex-Hospitaller caught between them all.

“Re-imagining the William Tell legend—without William Tell.”

At the end of the thirteenth century, five hundred orphans and second sons are rounded up from villages in the Alpine countryside and sold to the Hospitaller Knights of St John. Trained to serve as Soldiers of Christ, they fight in eastern lands they know nothing about, for a cause they do not understand.

Thomas Schwyzer, released from his vows by the Grandmaster of the Hospitallers, returns to the land of his birth a stranger. Once a leader of men, and captain of the Order’s most famous war galley, he now settles into the simple life of a ferryman. He believes this new role to be God’s reward for years of faithful service fighting the Infidel in Outremer.

Seraina, considered a witch by most, a healer by some, is a young woman with a purpose. A Priestess of the Old Religion, and the last Druid disciple of the Helvetii Celts, she has been gifted by the Great Weave to see what others cannot. Her people need her guidance and protection now more than ever. For Duke Leopold of Habsburg, in his efforts to control the St. Gotthard Pass, builds a great Austrian fortress in Altdorf. Once finished, the Habsburg occupation will be complete, but the atrocities visited upon her people will have just begun.

Set in medieval Switzerland, ALTDORF, a novel of The Forest Knights, is the first book in a two-book series.

Reign of Blood

By Alexia Purdy

“Never tease anything that wants to eat you. My name is April Tate and my blood is the new gold. Vampires and hybrids have overrun my world, once vibrant with life, but now a graveyard of death shrouded in shadows. I fight to survive; I fight for my mother and brother. The journey is full of turns that I am quite unprepared for. And I’m just hoping to make it to the next Vegas sunrise…”
In a post-apocalyptic world, a viral epidemic has wiped out most of the earth’s population, leaving behind few humans but untold numbers of mutated vampires. April is a seventeen-year-old girl who lives in the remains of Las Vegas one year after the outbreak. She has become a ferocious vampire killer and after her family is abducted, she goes searching for them. What she finds is a new breed of vampire, unlike any she has seen before. Unsure of whom she can trust, she discovers that her view of the world is not as black and white as she once thought, and she’s willing to bend the rules to rescue her family. But in trying to save them, she may only succeed in bringing her fragile world crashing down around her.

I want to start off by saying, in order for a book right now to garner 5 moons from me, it has to “Wow” me. I’m a writer, and as such, I don’t have as much time as I’d truly like for reading. And I’ve read too many books recently that all start to run together. BUT, Reign of Blood by Alexia Purdy was NO such book! I absolutely fell in love with this innovative, and unique story. The writing style is simple, yet packs a punch for the reader. I felt everything that our main character, April felt. Alexia developed her characters, allowing them to grow with the story. I sat up all night to finish April’s journey and I was not disappointed! This is a MUST read for any fantasy lover!

A man named Faust should know what happens when you rub shoulders with demons. Still Daniel can’t resist being drawn to Caitlin’s flame as they race to unlock the secret of the Etruscan Box, a relic that people all over town are dying — and killing — to get their hands on. As the bodies drop and the double-crosses pile up, Daniel will need every shred of his wits, courage and sheer ruthlessness just to survive.

Daniel Faust knew he was standing with one foot over the brink of hell. He’s about to find out just how far he can fall.

City of Shadows

By Jack Conner

Streetwise youth Stevrin lives at a brothel and works for a mad scientist, but it’s only when disappearances and quakes start happening in the steampunk-ish city that his life gets really interesting. When a witch tells him that a dark power is coming, he learns that only he can stop it.

But how can one foul-mouthed orphan teenager go up against cultists, mobsters, the undead and horrors from another dimension? One thing’s for sure: it will dangerous.

Anything can happen in the mysterious, shadow-shrouded city of Lavorgna, an industrial metropolis on a strange world (the same world Jack Conner’s Atomic Sea series is set in), where the sinister Guild of Alchemists hold sway over the government and underground doctors bring the dead back to life. Here Stevrin is thrown into a deadly stew of murders, disappearances, prostitutes, the reanimated dead and more otherworldly dangers. Soon it becomes apparent that it’s up to him to save not only Lavorgna, but the world.

Fans of China Mieville, Jim Butcher, H. P. Lovecraft, Jeff Vandermeer and Hellboy should enjoy the tale of Stevrin as he seeks to unravel the lethal strangeness gripping the city. Disappearances, earthquakes, insidious gas and shadows prowling the night are just the beginning.

Living at a brothel and doing chores for the girls in exchange for a bed and meals, Stevrin doesn’t know what he’s getting into when the brothel’s madam — and possible witch — Agatha dispatches him to investigate the series of odd occurrences. Before long it’s clear that if he doesn’t figure out what’s going on — and stop it — the whole world will be engulfed in horror.

The dreaded Order of Yreg-ngad is in league with the Guild of Alchemists, and between the two of them they’re cooking up something outright apocalyptic. Join Stevrin on a pulse-pounding trip into terror and weirdness as he explores the mad depths of Lavorgna . . . the City of Shadows.

Loki

By Mike Vasich

God of Mischief.
Father of Lies.
Harbinger of Destruction.

Exiled and tortured by the gods, Loki swears vengeance.

He will summon the mighty Fenris Wolf and the legendary Midgard Serpent, and they will lead an army of giants and all the dead in Niflheim.

Brimming with the power of the most destructive being in the Nine Worlds, he will not rest till Asgard is in ashes and all the gods are dead under his heel.

Reader reactions (from Goodreads.com):

“Excellent dialogue, rip-roaring battle scenes, and a fascinating main character make this an absolute must-read that will not be easily forgotten.”

“The fights in this book . . . may be the best I’ve ever read. They’re visceral (complete with viscera!) and intense, and there’s a sense that . . . the author really understand[s] martial combat in a way that too many fantasy writers fail to do nowadays.”

“Mr. Vasich has captured the Norse pantheon in ways that are both fresh and familiar, turning well loved stories into one intricate tapestry where each thread weaves into another into a seamless work of literary art.”

“The nature of mainstream comics strips Asgardians of their status as battle gods, but that isn’t the case here. Here, Odin, Thor, and Loki are the brutal, bloody, and vengeful immortals that you would expect.”

“Filled with gory (&incredibly detailed) battle scenes and raw emotions from the start. It’s bloody fantastic. Literally, BLOODY and FANTASTIC.”

From local and expat authors living in Taiwan comes a multi-genre anthology of short stories as piquant and varied as the food found in the island’s famous night markets.

This is the second production of the Taipei Writers Group, following on from their first anthology, Taiwan Tales.

I had the good fortune to have a friend recommend this second anthology of tales by writers living in Taiwan (Taipei Writers Group). Although I’ve never been there, I have heard about the vivid night markets, so I found the simple title of this book enticing from the outset.

I rather enjoyed jumping around from tale to tale as I continually uncovered fascinating environments, unique characters, and culturally rich images, sounds, tastes, traditions. I was occasionally so thoroughly immersed that I literally found myself making an effort to read faster (I enjoy luxuriating in a slow read) in order to reach an end that I could in no way predict. This experience was a relief from all the formulaic books, movies, music, and so on that surround us these days.

I look forward to many more anthologies from TWG. Make it soon!

Next

By Joshua Guess

For decades, people believed the world would change in a flash of light.

We were right. But it wasn’t a nuclear weapon. On a day in late November in the year 2000, the flash happened. A surge of incredible power annihilated a small town and announced the arrival of a new breed. One man was enough to change everything, but he was not alone.

He was only the first.

More than a decade later, the Next are everywhere. They are registered, cataloged, and forced to wear identification. Even under the burden of suspicion and fear, most of them live normal lives. Others serve their communities as police or firefighters, the closest thing to heroes they are allowed to be.

Some are criminals.

It is this group Kitra Singh will face when she is pulled from her comfortable existence as a government agent and thrust into the limelight as a member of the OSA, an organization that captures and contains superhuman criminals. The stakes are high: a killer is on the loose, hunting human and Next alike. Time is short, the danger growing, and hundreds of lives are at risk.

In a race against the clock, Kit will be tested as never before. She will stand toe to toe with god-like beings, and be forced to discover how far she is willing to go to stop them.

Victor Deus

By Brent Lee Markee

Every culture has its legends. Those men and women whose legacies were so great that their stories have been repeated generation to generation. A person of such impact that other cultures long detached from the origins tell stories of these powerful individuals. Such is the story of Victor Deus. Unlike many such legends, there was little need to embellish the deeds he and his allies accomplished. Some remember him as a savior, some as a tyrant. There are whole worlds that worship him like a god, and others that raise him up as a devil. All of these worlds agree upon one thing though, he was fiercely protective of his allies, and swiftly dealt with his enemies.

How does one become such a figure? Loved by so many, yet feared by even more? The story is a long one, and I hope you will bear with me as the story unfolds. One thing you must know about Victor Deus is that he was not given time to be a child, for his formative years were full of training and despair. Therefore, it is there where this story begins, a boy, barely able to hold a sword, thrust into events he cannot control.

Victor Deus (Heritage of the Blood: Book One) is the first book in a series of books that follow Victor Deus and his ally’s through an epic fantasy journey that will span many worlds and genres. The initial Arc will be three to four books long and will be a coming of age story for the main protagonists. Although I am starting with Victor at a young age, this will not be a young adult series. I have no plans for gratuitous sex or violence, but there will be war, and all that goes along with it.

*12/29/14 book one has been re-edited and should make for a smoother read. (If you find something though, feel free to yell at me about it on social media or by e-mail and I can fix it for the next reader)

Nicholas Raven and the Wizards’ Web

By Thomas J. Prestopnik

NICHOLAS RAVEN AND THE WIZARDS’ WEB – Volume 1

4 Kings.  3 Wars.  2 Nasty Wizards.  1 Magic Key.
An epic fantasy in three volumes for adults and older teens.

Volume 1: Prologue & Chapters 1 – 39
Volume 2: Chapters 40 – 85
Volume 3: Chapters 86 – 120 & Postscript

Nicholas Raven, a young gristmill accountant, just wanted a little adventure in his life. But he gets more than he bargained for when tumultuous winds of the past sweep him away on a journey he’ll never forget.

Invisible webs are being spun over the lands of Laparia; webs of war, deceit, revenge and manipulation, all by two corrupt wizards with different objectives. When Nicholas becomes an inconvenience to their plans which pass by his very doorstep, he finds himself unwittingly ensnared in their vindictive schemes.

After being accused of crimes he didn’t commit, Nicholas reluctantly flees home. But whether by chance or fate, his personal problems collide with the turbulent state of affairs around him, and he soon finds himself on a journey to the far corners of Laparia.

Against a backdrop of war, kidnapping, mistaken identity and newfound love, Nicholas becomes embroiled in a rescue mission along the shores of a sprawling sea, takes part in a quest to reforge a magic key that could tip the balance of power in a growing war, and is ultimately drawn into the center of the tangled web of intrigue that has plagued his life from the very start.

Saint Elm’s Deep

By M.R. Mathias

Here is what people are saying about Vanx Malic:

“I felt like I was in a whole new world reading this book… The storyline was also amazing. I would recommend anyone who loves fantasy books to read this as you will def be swept into this world!” – Avid Reader Reviews (*Review of Through the Wildwood, Book One)

“You’ve (Mathias) already achieved much, much more than so many people who like to think of themselves as writers.”
— @Gollancz The Deputy Publishing Director of SF, Fantasy & Horror list of the Orion Publishing Group.

“When reading this book, I was reminded of several other fantasy novels that I have read previously. The author’s style is individual, but it has the flavor of a Tolkien novel, or possibly Robert Jordan. I detected a great amount of affection in his deliverance of the characters, and their progress throughout the story was handled well. I must say that Vanx is quite a likeable rogue, and the way that the story begins certainly grabs the reader, pulling them into the story whether they like it, or not.”
— Kindle Review (*Review of Through the Wildwood, Book One)

Entertaining, action packed, and witty. Overall a good second book that starts where the first left off and I look forward to the next. – Jacob (Review of Dragon Isle, Book Two)

Snippet from Saint Elm’s Deep, The Legend of Vanx Malic Book III:
“I’ve been listening to all your spook talk for days,” Kegger said quite clearly, but with a caravaneers crudeness to his words. All of the gargan accent that had been in his voice when speaking of knives and bows, during his battling with Chelda, was gone, as if it had never been there. “My orders were to get you to the Lurr and wait for you to come out.” He hefted his axe and thumbed the edge he’d been sharpening nightly at the fire. “I’ve got a good bit of unfinished business in them woods myself. Twern’t no frost bite that took his limbs. The tree that had my brother was real. I swear it. I had to cut him from it. It was foul smelling, and as evil as the Letch itself. It bled thick red blood, just like you or I would, where my ax struck. I hurt it, and it screamed right at me before it turned Sean loose. It weren’t no magic fairy tree. This was as black and cold as the Letcher’s own wrath.”

“But you saw no sign of the fae in the Lurr Forest?” Gallarael asked.

“If I did, I didn’t know what it was,” Kegger chuckled. “Deer, elk, bear, and wolf. I know their sign well, but I’ve never seen a fairy turd, much less been inclined to look for one.”

The Legend of Vanx Malic continues with Book Three, “Saint Elm’s Deep”
After finding a map on a grueling hunt, Vanx and his new companions decide to travel deep into the Bitterpeaks, where a fabled hoar witch’s crystal palace supposedly sits hidden in a valley called Saint Elm’s Deep.

The story deepens, as we delve into Vanx’s past and the future of as unlikely a group of heroes as you will ever find. Action and adventure, drama and thrills, and a barrel keg full of fantasy adventure await readers in Saint Elm’s Deep, the third installment of The Legend of Vanx Malic.

Look for book four, “That Frigid Fargin’ Witch” in early 2014.

Blood Genesis

By Tessa Dawn

Before there was a modern-day town called Dark Moon Vale, there was an ancient kingdom nestled in the Transylvanian Alps. Before there was a primordial species called the Vampyr, there was a celestial race begotten of gods and men. Before light battled shadow, the sacrifice became mandatory, or the first Blood Moon adorned the celestial sky…

There was the Curse.

A punishment.
An abomination.
The ultimate act of vengeance.

And it was placed upon a people so corrupted by their thirst for blood and dominion that they awakened the souls of the slain ~ and became the souls of the damned.

Before the Blood Curse Series, there was a beginning.

Now edited by an actual editor. Many thanks to Robin S.

Enter a tale of intrigue, secrets, betrayals, and a continent on the verge of falling apart. A number of characters weave the story. A teenaged boy awakens one morning after a nightmare and sees it coming to pass in the waking world. He takes flight to escape a terrible fate. The Asgare, a fabled assassin that vanished fifteen years ago, has a surprise encounter that precipitates a trek across the land in search of his son. A dragon patrolling the border between draconic and human lands discovers a human child that is not all it seems. A princess watches her father’s health decline and dreads the consequences held in her future.

Their goals are not as disconnected as would first appear. In the end, they must all rely on each other to survive the coming trials.

  • “A well thought out and skillfully rendered plot, the characters are cunningly constructed and the reader can’t help but relate to their adventures. The story woven around plots within plots, seemingly minor detail having a major impact as events unfold, this has the makings of a great series, a very easy read, and one I am pleased to have found.” -John Bell on Amazon
  • A fantastic road trip. The adventures of the characters were exciting and seemed to be woven through and around each other pretty seamlessly. They keep your attention from beginning to end.

Broken Realms

By D.W. Moneypenny

Broken Souls (Book 2) and Broken Dragon (Book 3) in this series are on sale this week. Be sure to pick them up!

Mara Lantern doesn’t believe in metaphysical powers and alternate realities. That’s about to change.

After a jetliner plunges into the Columbia River near Portland, Oregon, everyone survives. So why do crash investigators have a hangar full of bodies, one for each passenger except Mara? Before the plane goes down, she glimpses a new reality, one with scales and snouts, fangs and gills. She sees a boy running down the aisle carrying a ball of blue light, chased by a girl who could be her clone. By trying to help, she unwittingly unleashes dozens of creatures on an unsuspecting world and sparks a series of events that threatens her life, her family and everything she believes. To save them, she has to embrace a power she cannot comprehend.

“D.W. Moneypenny has written a wonderful book interspersing cutting edge scientific thought with well-developed metaphysical thought.”
— soireadthisbooktoday.com

“In Broken Realms, Moneypenny has set up an incredible fantasy universe that will have no problem supporting sequels as Mara, her Miyagi-esque mentor, Ping, and her brother from another dimension track down the remaining Flight 559 passengers and save them (and the world) by sending them back to their respective realities.”

The Siren

By Meg Xuemei X.

“A flawless blend of sci-fi, YA fantasy, supernatural events, romance, adventure, action, suspense and intrigue … The Siren – Laments of Angels & Dark Chemistry – is a one of a kind young adult story and the start of a truly captivating series.” – Readers’ Favorite

Lucienne Lam, born to rule as the last of the Sirens, is running out of time. If she fails to find the TimeDust, an ancient power, her enemies will have their wish–her head on a spike. And she’ll never know the love promised by Vladimir, a fierce warrior of the Czech royal bloodline.

Except Ashburn, a genius ‘farm boy,’ has found the TimeDust first, and its power binds Lucienne to him. She must convince him to sever this forced bond so she can return to her first love. But breaking the link seems insurmountable when the TimeDust launches its own ominous agenda and the two boys prepare to duel to the death over her.

Laments of Angels & Dark Chemistry series – Will it be Us or Them?

Though packed with adventure, explosions, and romance, this series isn’t about action or entangled love interestsAt the heart of The Laments of Angels & Dark Chemistry series is the very survival of humankind.

I left clues on the mysteries of human origin, evolution, and ancient civilizations and wars throughout the first four books, but you’ll only get the answers in the fifth installment.

Long ago, Earth was filled with wars between more advanced species and wars we fought among ourselves and against them. Our ancestors called the superior race “the fallen angels,” who insisted they were the first Earth natives.

As humankind increased in numbers and became a new kind of predator, our conflict with the angels could no longer be settled. Human spirits could not accept the role of “inferior race.” Our ancestors chose to die free than live on their knees, and so they devised a weapon and drove the angels into the space. The cost was deadly–numerous brave men and women perished, and by turning back time, destroyed all technology and every advanced civilization.

Now millions of years have passed.

Humans stand hesitantly at the threshold of a quantum evolution, but the race we exiled has found a way to wage a new war against us. They’ve upgraded their magical powers and technology beyond our perception. They’re coming to take back Earth.

Unfortunately, the weapon our ancestors deployed has been lost to us. We don’t know anything about ancient warfare or our secret history. We don’t have the slightest idea that we’re facing extinction.

Our only hope rests with Lucienne Lam, the last and most powerful of the Sirens, who leads her Sphinxes nation in the fight against the returning angels. She will stand with the last of us to save our planet.

In the end, only one race can have Earth. Will it be us or them?

Sword of the Gods

By Anna Erishkigal

At the dawn of time, two ancient adversaries battled over control of Earth. One man rose to stand at humanity’s side. A soldier whose name we still remember today…

Angelic Special Forces Colonel Mikhail Mannuki’ili awakens, mortally wounded, in his crashed ship. The woman who saves his life has abilities which seem familiar, but with no memory of his past, he can’t remember why! With his ship destroyed and a shattered wing, he has no choice but to integrate into her village.

Ninsianna’s people have prophecies of a winged champion, a Sword of the Gods who will defend her people against an Evil One. Mikhail insists he is no demigod, but her dark premonitions and his uncanny ability to kill say otherwise. Even without the technology destroyed along with his ship, the sword he carries is a weapon of mass destruction to a people who still throw sticks and stones. When women start to disappear, Mikhail must organize her people to fight back .

Evil whispers to a sullen Prince. A dying species seeks to avoid extinction. Two emperors, entrenched in their ancient ideologies, cannot see the larger threat. As intrigues roil the heavens, a tiny Mesopotamian town becomes ground-zero for this fantasy fiction retelling of mankind’s most epic story about the battle between good and evil … the clash of empires and ideologies … and the greatest superhero to ever walk the Earth. The Archangel Michael.

The Sword of the Gods series is a Science-Fantasy retelling of the myth of fallen angels, told in the ‘epic’ style of Game of Thrones, Dune, and Outlander. It contains religious blasphemy, sex and violence which may be upsetting to some readers.

This book is NOT Christian fiction.

When she downs an entire bottle of pills to deal with the emotional pain, her parents force her into counseling. There, her therapist writes a prescription in the form of a life list titled 18 Things. Eighteen quests to complete the year of her eighteenth birthday. All she has to do is fire-walk, try out for the cheerleading squad, break a world record, and err… go on her first date.

Good thing Nate, a new hottie in town, enters her life with perfect timing. He brings the fun factor to her list and helps her discover the beauty and strength inside herself, then complicates things by falling in love with her.

But there’s more to Olga’s quests than meets the eye and when her therapist reveals a terrifying secret, her world is shaken.

The Wielder: Betrayal

By David Gosnell

Arthur just buried his wife of 76 years. To make things worse, he knows he won’t be joining her in the after-life anytime soon because of a “gift” he was given. That gift being six entities that are grafted to his soul. He can summon them at will – a succubus, a demon sorcerer, a fairy, a leprechaun, a cat-being warrior and his ever most trusty hell-hound. Because of their direct connection to his soul their power leeches into him. So, Arthur doesn’t age or get sick.

He knows he will outlive his family. After all, he just outlived his wife.

Unfortunately though, he outlives his son a lot sooner than later. His son is murdered in a most foul manner. Arthur goes in search of revenge with death and devastation following in his wake. But Arthur’s bent on revenge is quickly interrupted by a behind the scenes “supernatural police” who arrest him, interrogate him and bring him in for judgment.

That’s where things turn really bad for poor Arthur. He’s finds he’s been set up. Nothing is what it seemed. Worse even – he’s been betrayed. And now he has to pay the price for it – both spiritually and in time incarcerated.

This is the first book in an envisioned series of six. It introduces you to Arthur MacInerny and his band of six “summonlings” along with the multiverse setting in which they all reside.

This is a second edition text, reflecting editing for some grammar and clarity issues.

How (Not) to Kiss a Prince

Let the Magical Mayhem begin! Cindy Eller has not one, but two weddings to prepare for in less than two weeks when the cupcakes hit the fan– a mysterious man has appeared claiming to be betrothed to Cindy and insisting she must marry him before her sister’s nuptials can take place.

Obviously this doesn’t sit well with Cindy’s Ordinary boyfriend.

That’s the way the cake– and the wedding– crumbles!

I am really enjoying this series about a witch who loves to bake using her magic. I have to say that I enjoyed this book as well if not better than the first book. This book gives us more information on Cindy and the other characters. I again could not put this book down and read it in one sitting, because I couldn’t wait to see what happened. I was loved the ending, except for the cliffhanger. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series to see what happens next. If you like love stories, humor, and magic you will love this book and the others in the series.

Obsidian Son

By Shayne Silvers

Black Ops Wizard For Hire!

The Minotaur — a violent creature spawned from Greek legends — has become a Buddhist. Oblivious to his change in dogma, Nate Temple — part-time wizard, full-time bookstore owner, and well-timed smartass — seeks him out to find answers about a rare, untitled book on dragons for a mysterious new client. But cow-tipping him might not have been the best opening move, especially after he’s booted straight into the waiting arms of the police, who intend to question him about the mysterious circumstances that surround the death of his billionaire parents — circumstances that he never could have anticipated.

Shape-shifting dragons are dead set on taking over his city, murdering bookstore owners all over town in search of a particular book to use during the upcoming solar eclipse. Nate, never one to back down from an impossible fight, joins his closet-werewolf, FBI Agent friend to stake a flag under the St. Louis Arch, declaring it immune to a reptile dysfunction. But dragons begin to crawl out of the stonework, hungry for a fire-roasted wizard and werewolf kabob.

Known as a depraved playboy and the new owner of a multi-billion-dollar company makes trying to keep his face — and his growing magical abilities — out of the media an impossibility, and between battling a pack of renegade gargoyles, and slaying a dragon in a high-speed car chase in broad daylight, Temple finds his magical anonymity challenged by the journalistic efforts of the five o’clock news. Nate must learn the truth of a stunning betrayal that leads all the way back to his parents’ murder if he hopes to save everyone he cares about. But not before dishing out a world of hurt on the dragons with his new motley crew of Black-Ops supernaturals to do a little dragon hunting.

The Mist on Bronte Moor

By Aviva Orr

When Heather Jane Bell is diagnosed with alopecia and her hair starts falling out in clumps, she wants nothing more than to escape her home in London and disappear off the face of the earth. Heather gets her wish when her concerned parents send her to stay with a great-aunt in West Yorkshire. But shortly after she arrives, Heather becomes lost on the moors and is swept through the mist back to the year 1833. There she encounters fifteen-year-old Emily Bronte and is given refuge in the Bronte Parsonage.

Unaware of her host family’s genius and future fame, Heather struggles to cope with alopecia amongst strangers in a world foreign to her. While she finds comfort and strength in her growing friendship with Emily and in the embrace of the close-knit Bronte family, Heather’s emotions are stretched to the limit when she falls for Emily’s brilliant but troubled brother, Branwell.

Will Heather find her way back to the comforts and conveniences of the twenty-first century? Or will destiny keep her in the harsh world of nineteenth-century Haworth?

“Absolutely spectacular! I couldn’t put this book down, and was mesmerized from the first word until the very last. The Mist on Bronte Moor has made it to my favorites list.” ~Kerri Cuevas, author, Deadly Kisses

“…a quick and engaging read that YA readers of all ages will enjoy.” ~The Reading Cafe

“Mixing time travel, romance, history, and suspense, this new take on the Brontë family is refreshing and unique. Although a work of fiction, the story makes you imagine what it was like for the Brontë family in the 19th century. The Mist on Bronte Moor brings you on a vivid journey to a historical past.” –YA Vixens

Not to be out done, the Pagan Queen Mab, claims Claire for entering her realm uninvited. She has an old debt to settle with her brother the Devil. Taking Claire from him after losing her years ago is just icing on the cake.

Will Claire win her freedom, and save herself from the Devil? Or be trapped by Mab forever?

The Soul Summoner

By Elecia Hyder

Blessed–or cursed–with a connection to the souls of others, Sloan Jordan can see the best in people… and the worst. For twenty-seven years, she’s kept her ability a secret, but eleven young women have been murdered in the mountains of North Carolina, and Sloan may be the only hope of finding their killer.

She has just agreed to help Detective Nathan McNamara with the case, when a stranger—who is as alluring as he is terrifying—shows up at her doorstep with a dark past and another puzzling mystery: she can’t see his soul at all.

Now Sloan is on the hunt for a deadly psychopath with two irresistible men. One of them would die for her, and the other would kill to keep her safe.

The Divine Arsonist

By Jacob Nordby

(excerpt from page 300) …BURN THIS BOOK

Why would author, Jacob Nordby, ask you to read his new novel, then burn it?

This is no ordinary book.

Fact and fiction weave together in this autobiographical tale of spiritual awakening.

The main character is a burned-out businessman who takes an unplanned retreat to his cabin in the mountains of Idaho.

On the first evening of his getaway, a mysterious stranger appears beside his campfire and delivers a summons: “Drop everything and attend a rendezvous of destiny…the fate of the world may depend upon it.”

He is confronted with a terrifying choice: believe this stranger and take a journey into the unknown, or ignore the whole thing and perhaps miss his call of destiny?

Join the main character on an adventure of the spirit. With him, you will meet a cast of divine helpers, shaman monks and ragged teachers who will captivate your imagination. Rich with insights, quotations and teachings of sources ranging from ancient to modern, this book is a breath of fresh air for the soul.

Like the hero in this tale of awakening, you may never see life the same way again.

Author’s note: This book tells a story using symbolic language and fictional situations. It is my own tale of spiritual awakening, though. In it, I share some of my most personal and exciting discoveries. I hope you enjoy it…and I hope you burn it when you’re done. Find out why in Chapter 15.

Inquisitor

By R.J. Blain

When Allison is asked to play Cinderella-turned-Fianceé at a Halloween ball, the last thing she expected was to be accused of murder. She has to find the killer or she’ll be put to death for the crimes she didn’t commit. To make matters worse, the victims are all werewolves.

On the short list of potential victims, Allison has to act fast, or the killer will have one more body to add to his little black book of corpses.

There’s only one problem: One of the deaths has struck too close to home, and Allison’s desire for self-preservation may transform into a quest for vengeance…

This is Ms Blain’s third book, and with it, her writing has blossomed. The control of pacing, tightly written action sequences, and jaw-dropping plot twists are a testament to the skill of the author. And an honest-to-goodness, multidimensional heroine (with a real personality, and actual hopes, fears, failings and needs, no less) is a fantastic breath of fresh air. I am a fan of the urban fantasy genre in general, but in the past, have been dismayed by the “dumbing down” that I’ve seen in the field. But this gives me hope. This is Charles De Lint good. Diane Duane good. Though still a bit raw and finding her voice, Ms Blain is definitely an author to watch.

Yes, this world has werewolves and witches. But this is not Twilight. And thank god for that.

American Ghoul

By Walt Morton

Howard Pickman has a terrible secret. If anyone finds out, it will mean death for everyone he loves. Even worse, he’s the new kid at the most abysmal high school in America. All Howard wants to do is remain anonymous, but being a teenager can be dangerous. He’ll have to fight true monsters in order to survive.

“A classic coming of age tale is in the best tradition of Mark Twain, Stephen King, and The Sex Pistols.”

  1. “A gloriously macabre young-adult tale about the difficulties of being a teenage ghoul in the 1970s. Once readers dig up this clever supernatural story, they likely won’t want to put it down.” – KIRKUS REVIEWS
  2. “Anyone wanting a refreshing story with a young voice full of humor and teenage angst, yet with all the Gothic trappings that have kept the genre popular for over two centuries, give American Ghoul a try! – SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER
  3. “I admire Morton’s story-telling ability, his macabre descriptions and his dark treatment of the high school experience from a teenager with a terrible secret. There were moments that chilled me to the bone, but kept me turning the pages to follow Howard’s journey from outsider to anti-hero.” – JACKSONVILLE NAVIGATOR

The Bone Wall

By D. Wallace Peach

Blue light ripples and crackles as the shield walls fracture. The remnants of a doomed civilization stand vigil outside, intent on plunder and slaves, desirous of untainted blood to strengthen their broken lives. With the poisons, came deformities and powers, enhanced senses and the ability to manipulate waves of energy—lightbenders and fire-wielders.

For those who thrived for generations within the walls, the broken world looms, strange and deadly, slowly dying. While the righteous pray for salvation, Rimma prepares for battle, fueled by rage and blinded by vengeance. Her twin, Angel, bound to her by unbreakable magic, seeks light in the darkness, hope in the future, and love in a broken world.

D. Wallace Peach’s fourth novel combines elements of fantasy and science-fiction into a character-driven adventure. The Bone Wall foretells of a dystopian world where a poisoned planet no longer sustains its inhabitants. Who survives when there isn’t enough for all? Who decides?

The Bone Wall begins three hundred years in a post-apocalyptic future. Precisely controlled communities with forgotten histories thrive beneath protective energy fields…until those fields begin to fail. What happens when the facades crumble and the past’s dark truth is unearthed?

Twins Rimma and Angel share this first person tale of a life unraveling and mending. Both are strong female protagonists who chose opposing paths when thrust in the broken and perilous world. The simplistic lines dividing good and evil blur, and beg the question: Can one survive without the other? What is the secret of their lives that even they can’t comprehend?

If grimdark tales of spiraling destruction and redemption crowd your bookshelf, this fantasy adventure desires a place among them.

The Bone Wall contains scenes which some readers might find triggering.

The Visionary

By James Hawthorne

During the summer of 1967, three members of the rock band Wyldeflower head out into the arid California desert to kick back and relax.

When they get there, they decide to take some LSD supposedly created by the government.

What happens that night will not only affect the rest of their lives but result in the creation of a being with almost unlimited mental powers.

What a fascinating and intriguing novel. The first chapter totally captivated my attention. I was a huge fan of “Lost” a TV series and sensed this was going to be an interesting read! As I read some one of the reviews that mentioned typos I realized it had to do with my Kindle version. I also bought the paperback and it was fine. I love the integration of pop culture and music in all of James Hawthorns book. The writer took me on an amazing journey into the mind and it’s incredible power. I thought that there might be some explanation about this drug and the correlation to Sean’s physic powers. The last part of the book was definitely a wild ride for the reader. Great book and ca’t wait for the next one from this author!

Sons of Thunder

By Bowen Greenwood

What if God gave ordinary people miraculous abilities?

Connor Merritt risks his life to save the cashier in a convenience store robbery. He’s shot three times in the torso and once in the head. He walks away without a scratch on him. Anna Wales is held captive in a government cell with no windows, one locked door, and zero way out. The next morning she’s gone without a trace. Together, the two of them will learn that God is doing something new in our time. A new age of miraculous gifts is breaking out in the world. Now a team of young people will have to learn how to use their God-given Gifts for the good of all, while an evil counterfeit arises to oppose them. Their friends and family choose sides, their commitment will be tested, and they will learn what it really means to serve God. In a classic battle of good against evil, a new kind of hero will rise to take up a mantle and a name dating back to the time of Jesus: the Sons of Thunder.

I told the author I liked his other two books, and he asked if I would read an advance copy on this one and provide an honest review . Here it is. Good book, took three hours to read, one sitting. I started reading, and lost track of time until I was done. It moved along very quickly, lots of action, and a book that I can recommend my teenage sons read. A very different plot than the other books I read, but fun and interesting because of that. Good, evil, superheros, human failings, three dimensional characters who do not always act in predictable ways, what more could you ask for. Highly recommended. As long as Bowen keeps writing, I will keep reading.

Shiftless

By Aimee Easterling

PMS is no fun for werewolves.

Forget the full moon, female werewolves shift uncontrollably at that time of the month. But after years of practice, teenaged Terra learns to squash her wolf, which allows her to flee the repressive village where she grew up.

A decade later, the packless ache gnaws at her insides. But when Terra is ambushed by her father and half a dozen of his henchmen, she still struggles against being reeled back into her old life. Chief Wilder is adamant, yet he does offer one way out — hunt down her nephew Keith, teach him to shift, and bring the youngster back into the fold in her place.

Problem upon problem piles up as Terra strives to do her father’s bidding. The female shifter has hidden from her wolf for so long that she finds herself unable to change back into canine form, and she also realizes that her nephew is too good-natured to survive for a minute walking in his grandfather’s footsteps. Will Terra be able to relearn her werewolf abilities — and overcome her morals — before her father steals away her hard-earned independence?

The Alignment

By Kay Camden

He’s killed three men in the few days she’s known him. Yes, it’s self-defense. But when he tried to kill her, it wasn’t. Her peaceful mountain refuge has been invaded, her inexplicable nausea linked to his physical presence. She’s captive in his house for her “protection,” with a churning stomach, his bad attitude, and no safe way home.

All that changed the night the stars aligned.

Now he’s talking about ancient bloodlines and celestial alignments…and other things she only believes because of what she’s seen him do. He’s heading out for revenge against the family who wronged him, and he needs her help. All she has to do is ingest one homemade dissolving tablet to allow him into her mind–to train her to be just like him.

The answer would be a definite no if she had anything of her world left. If she hadn’t fallen in love with him.

For as long as mankind has been stranded, dragons have been their sworn enemies.

But no longer…

Helga: Out of Hedgelands

By Rick Johnson

VOLUME ONE in the WOOD COW CHRONICLES series.

Helga has more danger in her life than most beasts her age—Wrackshee slavers after her, a vicious attack by bandits that nearly kills her, a race against dragons pursuing her, and leading a daring rebellion to save her life and rescue friends and family from the insidious WooZan. And that is just the beginning. But what do you expect when you are a young beast who just can’t see the stupid rules of the world making any sense? Helga can’t accept things as they are and ends up taking on not just one, but two all-powerful, supreme tyrants in two different realms.

Helga never intended to lead a revolution. It just sort of happened because she wouldn’t go along with the “rules of normal” that keep tyrants in power and entire societies enslaved. Beginning on a dangerous quest to solve some mysteries in her own past, Helga leads her quirky comrades on a journey that will not only forever change them, but upset ancient civilizations.

As an author, I’m drawn to eccentric, unexpected characters: those who surprise because they hear a distant galaxy, see a different music, create their own fragrance rather than get hooked on a soundtrack; the child who has her own ideas about how the emperor is dressed; the lunatics and rebels who tell stories on the boundaries. Helga’s unusual story will take readers to worlds they never imagined—definitely a whole new ride.

Time and again, the unconventional heroine and her eccentric comrades overcome ominous tyrants and black-hearted slavers, not by battling to the last beast standing, but by being the first beast to think differently.

Helga: Out of Hedgelands is divided into three books which introduce the epic saga of the Wood Cow clan and their role in overturning centuries of slavery and tyranny. This story will continue in additional volumes of the Wood Cow Chronicles now in development. Over the series of current and future volumes, the entire history of the Wood Cow clan, the fall of Maev Astuté, and the coming of Lord Farseeker to the Outer Rings, will be told.

CAGED

By Amber Lynn Natusch

“I stood in the middle of the room, unmoving – I barely breathed. My life had just become surreal, impossible, and one enormous lie. I needed to go, to run somewhere, anywhere to beat back the reality that was rapidly closing in around me. The image of him was burned into my retina, flashing over and over again like a warning. He was trapped somewhere between human and decidedly not, and I realized that was my new reality.
I was too.”

After the death of her parents, Ruby awakens from a lifetime of shadows and finds herself alone, thrust into a world of lies, deceit, betrayal and the supernatural.
As her quest for truth continues to come up short, she realizes that maybe some questions really are best left unanswered.
When her true identity is finally unveiled, she is forced to choose between two of the mysterious men who continually seem to crop up in her life.
She chooses poorly.
Now abandoned, Ruby must learn to call on the darkness within to survive, or spend a hellish eternity imprisoned because of it.

Natusch’s descriptions are spellbinding without putting even the smallest damper on the endless action. It might be an indie publication but rest assured, you’re in for a wild ride. With a riveting narrative and a story line that just doesn’t quit; this book is a must read for any and all paranormal fiction junkies.” ~Carmel

Black Magic Academy

By Emily Martha Sorensen

Mildred doesn’t like black magic. But her mother was once valedictorian of Black Magic Academy, so her aunts insist she needs to follow in her footsteps and become one too.

Mildred doesn’t want to be part of the popular crowd. Nor does she care about her “death-enemy.” And she certainly has no interest in murderous spells. But if the teachers catch on that she’s actually a good witch . . . well, they don’t react well to that kind of ignominy.

What’s the only good witch in a school of wicked witches to do?

Imagine Hogwarts in an alternate reality where you-know-who’s evil magic is the norm, then mix in some Hunger Games with alumni engaging in death-enemy battles, and you kinda get the general picture of Black Magic Academy, the “IN” school for bad little witches.

That’s the scenario for Mildred our heroine, whose mother was once valedictorian of BMA, and who is therefore expected to be a tick off the old bat. Unfortunately for Mildred, she hasn’t inherited her mother’s bad genes, and she soon learns that it’s really bad to be good.

Imaginative and non-formulaic, this is a mix of magic, witches, giants, kings, curses and alligator pancakes, rolled into a compact one-sitting thoroughly enjoyable read. Looking forward to more in this series, which is suitable for ages ten and up, but more especially for girls, as the male characters haven’t really come out to play as yet.

When Riley meets the handsome yet mysterious Connor on the streets of Downtown San Diego, they form a bond unlike either has experienced before. When the things that go bump in the night turn out to be more than nightmares, the trio sets off for the mountains in search of an isolated resort where they can hunker down, away from the ominous shadows of the dead city streets. The peace and tranquility of the woods isn’t enough to keep the darkness away for long though and soon Riley and Connor are forced to accept that the World and the few people left alive in it will never be the same. The shadows of their past may haunt them forever…threatening to destroy what little dreams they have left of a future unless they fight to stay in the light and never lose their hope.

At The Walls Of Galbrieth

By Alon Shalev

Winner of the 2013 Eric Hoffer Book Award for YA and a Grand Prize Finalist. The young elf desired only to follow in his mother’s footsteps and become a healer. But when the Emperor’s army attacks his village to punish traitors and conscript youth, Seanchai flees to the mountains, seeking safe harbor with an uncle he has never met. He is shocked as many people sacrifice their lives to ensure he reaches a Wycaan Master, an enigmatic woman named Mhari, who can teach him to wield a powerful death-and-life magic that might just free the races of Odessiya.

In a world defined by strict racial boundaries, where humans rule, dwarves hide deep underground, and elves are a slave nation, Seanchai must find a way to create friendships and trust, unheard of since the fall of the Wycaan Masters, and reunite the races into an alliance that will bring freedom to all.

But sometimes one must choose between his companions and his destiny. Seanchai abhors his ability to kill and, in the friendships he forges, discovers something potentially more powerful than his magic.

Friendship, however, can be a double-edged sword.

The Legend of Oescienne

By Jenna Elizabeth Johnson

When the dragon Jaax receives word that a human infant has been found in the province of Oescienne, he doesn’t dare believe it. Humans have been extinct for centuries, trapped by a terrible curse and left to live out their existence in the form of dragons. Despite his doubts, however, Jaax assumes responsibility for the baby girl only to discover that what he has been seeking for so many years has finally been found . . .

Jahrra knows all about the legends and sagas of Oescienne, but never in her wildest dreams would she believe that she played a part in one of them. She’s far too busy dodging the bullies at school and seeking out new adventures with her friends to worry about what secrets her dragon mentor might be keeping from her, or that her every move is being watched by something living in the forest surrounding her home.

But the secrets run deep, and as Jahrra fights to earn her place in this extraordinary world, she will begin to unravel the truth of it all: that she isn’t as safe as she thought she was, that danger lurks around every corner, and that her role in this unfurling tale is far more significant than she could possibly imagine.

A Reign of Steel

By Morgan Rice

“THE SORCERER’S RING has all the ingredients for an instant success: plots, counterplots, mystery, valiant knights, and blossoming relationships replete with broken hearts, deception and betrayal. It will keep you entertained for hours, and will satisfy all ages. Recommended for the permanent library of all fantasy readers.”
–Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos

A REIGN OF STEEL is Book #11 in the Bestselling series THE SORCERER’S RING, which begins with A QUEST OF HEROES (book #1)–a FREE download on Amazon, with over 1,000 five star reviews!

In A REIGN OF STEEL (BOOK #11 IN THE SORCERER’S RING), Gwendolyn must protect her people as she finds King’s Court under siege. She strives to evacuate them from the Ring—but there is one problem: her people refuse to leave. As a power struggle ensues, Gwen finds her queenship under challenge for the first time—while the greatest threat to the Ring looms.

Behind the McClouds lie the threat of Romulus and his dragons, who, with the Shield destroyed, embark on a catastrophic invasion, nothing left to stand between them and the complete annihilation of the Ring. Romulus, with Luanda at his side, is unstoppable while the moon lasts, and Gwen must fight for survival—for herself, for her baby, and for her people—amidst an epic battle of dragons, and of men. Kendrick leads the Silver in a valiant battle, and he is joined by Elden and the new Legion recruits, along with his brother Godfrey, who surprises everyone, including himself, with his acts of valor. But even so, it may not all be enough.

Thor, meanwhile, embarks on the quest of his life in the Land of the Druids, trekking across a fearsome and magical land, a land unlike any other, with magical rules out of its own. Crossing this land will require every ounce of strength and training he has, will force him to dig deeper within, to become the great warrior—and Druid—he was meant to be. As he encounters monsters and challenges unlike ever before, he will have to lay down his life to try to reach his mother.

Erec and Alistair journey to the Southern Isles, where they are greeted by all of his people, including his competitive brother and envious sister. Erec has a dramatic final meeting with his father, as the island prepares for him to ascend the throne as King. But in the Southern Isles, one must fight for the right to be King, and in an epic battle, Erec will be tested as never before. In a dramatic twist, we learn that treachery hides even here, in this place of noble and great warriors.

Reece, embattled and surrounded on the Upper Isles, must fight for his life after his vengeance on Tirus. Desperate, he finds himself united with Stara, each wary of the other, yet untied in a quest to survive—one that will culminate in an epic battle at sea and will threaten the entire island.

Will Gwen cross the sea to safety? Will Romulus destroy the Ring? Will Reece and Stara be together? Will Erec rise as King? Will Thor find his mother? What will become of Guwayne? Will anyone be left alive?

With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A REIGN OF STEEL is an epic tale of friends and lovers, of rivals and suitors, of knights and dragons, of intrigues and political machinations, of coming of age, of broken hearts, of deception, ambition and betrayal. It is a tale of honor and courage, of fate and destiny, of sorcery. It is a fantasy that brings us into a world we will never forget, and which will appeal to all ages and genders.

The First Dragoneer

By M.R. Matthias

The First Dragoneer is an intro to the Dragoneer Saga. I wrote it in 2009, before I could consider myself a writer. The characters are young, but the story wasn’t written to be YA. Many reviewers believe it, and the rest of the Dragoneer Saga, is. In fantasy, I don’t really think it matters all that much. The Royal Dragoneers, the first full length novel in the series, is just 2.99 for a limited time.
If you like dragons, action, and adventure, you may enjoy these books. I definitely enjoyed bringing them to fruition.
Hold on to your dragon! – M. R. Mathias The First Dragoneer
When two young men go on a hunt that they know will probably be the last hunt of their youth, they decide they want it to be an unforgettable outting.

When they cross a ridge and leave the unprotected, unpatrolled boundary of their kingdom, they find a cavern that looks like it needs to be explored.

Inside the cavern they find exactly what they were looking for. For residing in the darkened depths of this stoney hole is something that they will never forget……

That is, if they live long enough to remember it!

Snippet: His words abruptly stopped as a new sound carried toward them. It was a snort, a loud one. It was accompanied by the sound of rattling branches. Brendly instantly went back into firing position; alert, prone and ready.

March gave his nose a last second scratch as put his arrow to the string. The soft sound of Bren’s excited breathing was the last sound he heard before tuning the world out so that he could focus on the tree line.

First it was a small doe, a yearling, March thought. Two fawns, and another larger doe appeared. With nervous darting eyes, the biggest of the four deer lowered its head and began to drink. Slowly the others followed. March was thrilled. He hoped that Bren would be patient. A buck was sure to present itself eventually.

Bren almost loosed his arrow on the larger doe, but at the last second thought better of it. He wanted a buck to show off to his dad, but his restraint was mostly due to the two awkward moving young fawns frolicking near their mother.

Suddenly, all four of the deer rose from the pool and froze in alarm. In a flash of movement, a big cracking sound erupted from behind them. They were off in a series of leaping bounds that carried them instantly out of sight and back into the forest.

Here he comes, March thought. He expected a wide heavy rack of antlers to emerge from the trees, announcing the leader of the herd. Instead, the creature that showed itself nearly stopped his heart.

As silently as he could, Brendly took in a deep breath as the magnificent beast stepped out of the tree line. Cautiously, yet with an air of arrogance, it moved into the clearing and looked around.

It was the white stag…

The Castrofax

By Jenna Van Vleet

Gabriel never expected Princess Robyn to show up at his manor after word of her sudden disappearance. Because of his remarkable talent in wielding the elements, however, he is appointed her protector until she can take the throne, but word of his magical power slowly spreads to untrusting ears.

Imprisoned because his abilities constitute a threat, Gabriel fights for his freedom as Princess Robyn is forced to fight for her throne.
Only through learning the true meaning of strength can either of them be saved, but all power comes with a cost.

 

I have read hundreds of Fantasy and Sci-fi book over the years, I have several series I go back to and reread for fun even though I know how they end every year. After reading The Castrofax I can say that this series is going to be added to my list of books I reread. It’s just a really fun read, it broght back feeling of when I was a kid and read some of my firs Fantasy novels. The joy and wonder of embarking on a quest, fighting evil and saving damsels and seeing what over the next hill. The characters are interesting and each have a very strong personality and voice that it’s easy to get pulled into the room and feel like you are eavesdropping. The descriptions of the environment, clothing and hair, mannerisms, and cultures in the books are detailed enough you feel you really know what is going on and want to know more without wandering off into the 5 page descriptions that can commonly occur with a few other authors I could name. Robyn is a strong willed and mischievous character, Gabriel the long suffering companion and protector with a dry wit that makes their conversations hilarious and I found myself constantly reading just a few more chapters because it’s a really good part of the book. I found myself doing that a lot.

Interesting Times

Oliver Jones is the most dangerous man in the world.

At least, someone out there believes he is. Oliver himself thought he was one of the world’s duller men, working as a financial analyst in San Francisco by day and eating microwave dinners by himself every night. That was until he befriended a stray cat, and then one lonely night the cat began to speak to him.

Now Oliver is on the run, hunted by an inhuman assassin whose client believes Oliver is the “Destroyer of Worlds.” His only hope for survival rests with a trio of unlikely new allies: A werewolf with a fondness for Hawaiian shirts, an emotionless little girl who is much, much older than she appears, and a genocidal gunfighter with a serious anger management problem.

And there’s that talking cat, of course. But that’s a little harder to explain…

Blood Reaction A Vampire Novel

By D.L. Atha

Annalice, a single mother and physician, is ready to immerse herself in the mundane chores of her farm as a diversion from her hectic professional life. But she becomes the victim of a home invasion, the supernatural kind. Vindictive and cruel, Asa, a century old vampire, takes brutal control of her life and home.

Forcing her to strike a bargain in exchange for her daughter’s life, Annalice must not only accept his presence but also bow to his depravity. Facing threats to her only child, she relies on her skills as a physician to unravel the clues to the vampire’s existence, attempting to beat him at his own game.

Caught in a race against a genetic timeline, Annalice struggles to survive the Blood Reaction.

I received this book free from the author for review, but this is my honest and own opinion.

I always get a little wary reading books from unknown authors that have few reviews, but this was a very pleasant surprise. It starts with a very normal family scene, a mother waving her daughter off as she drives away with her grandmother for a vacation. OK nothing amazing there. Before it even got to the end of the first chapter the storyline became tense and as the first few chapters progressed, the whole feel of the book changed. It was tense, but exciting at the same time.

Without giving too much away Annalise, the main character is forced to spend time with Asa a 150 year old vampire. Using her daughter as a threat, he feeds on her (and not just on her blood either) and ensures she complies to his desires. Over the few days things slowly change and Annalise decides she no longer wants to be a victim and plans Asa’s demise.

This book was very well written and the tension building was fantastic. I was on the edge of my seat virtually the whole way through. I loved Annalise and the person she was and became. I hope there’s another book out soon following her next journey in life.

The Pharaoh’s Cat

By Maria Lang

The Pharaoh’s Cat, narrated in the present tense by the cat himself, is the story of a free-spirited, quick-witted stray in ancient Egypt who suddenly finds himself with human powers joined to his feline nature.

The cat immediately captures the attention of the seventeen-year-old Pharaoh, making him laugh for the first time since his parents’ death, and is brought to live with him at the royal palace.

The cat also becomes friends with the High Priest of the god Amun-Ra and seeks his help in solving the mystery of his human powers and the supernatural manifestations that later plague him. He has an enemy in the Vizier—the Pharaoh’s uncle and the second most powerful man in Egypt. The Vizier hates him for himself and even more for his relationship with the Pharaoh.

The cat participates in festivities at the royal palace, developing an insatiable appetite for good food, wine, and gossip. He later accompanies the Pharaoh on a trip through his kingdom, all the while renewing the Pharaoh’s ability to enjoy life and inspiring him to become a stronger leader.

Between the cat and the Pharaoh a bond of love gradually forms which will determine Egypt’s destiny.

The Pharaoh’s Cat imaginatively blends Egyptology with comedy, drama, and even time travel–the cat and the High Priest will meet Elena, a resident of the twenty-first century and the daughter of a renowned Egyptologist.

Maria Luisa Lang was born in Rome and lives in New York City. She has a degree in art history and is an amateur Egyptologist. The Pharaoh’s Cat is her first novel. She has almost completed a sequel.

Moth

They say the world used to turn. They say that night would follow day in an endless dance. They say that dawn rose, dusk fell, and we worshiped both sun and stars.

That was a long time ago.

The dance has died. The world has fallen still. We float through the heavens, one half always in light, one half always in shadow. Like the moth of our forests, one wing white and the other black, we are torn.

My people are the fortunate. We live in daylight, blessed in the warmth of the sun. Yet across the line, the others lurk in eternal night, afraid… and alone in the dark.

I was born in the light. I was sent into darkness. This is my story.

I am Gaia Samuelle and I should have died in the car accident that killed my friends. Only I didn’t. It wasn’t a miracle that saved me; it was love. My best friend Marina thinks I’m being seduced by a demon. She thinks she can save me. But she doesn’t understand. I don’t need saving. All I need is him.

Gabriel is my Protector. He’s watched over mortals for centuries. Not once has he broken the rules. Until now. For reasons neither he nor I understand, he let me live. He traded my death for love–our love. And that’s forbidden. If Heaven finds out, he’ll be annihilated.

Now, we’re caught in a war between Heaven and Hell. The battle has begun.

Getting told from one of my most favourite authors out there, “Holly, you NEED to read this book. It’s so amazing, you will love it.” (…) I was in this book haze for days afterwards. Just wandering around replaying scene after scene in my head, like memories of something that had actually happened to me. If you’re not such a fan of Paranormal then that’s ok. You don’t need to be.

The Soul and the Seed

By Arie Farnam

The facade of freedom is a thinly veiled lie. In present-day America, a power cult can usurp your will and turn you against your friends and family.

Once—more than a thousand years ago—there were people who were immune to Addin control of hearts and minds. Legends around the globe still speak of them—slight people with pointed ears, now relegated to fantasy stories. Their true name has been forgotten.

They were the Kyrennei.

A prophecy says they will one day return, but the Addin vow to exterminate them. The Meikans, the descendants of human allies of the Kyrennei, yet exist, though they live under a tyrannical treaty with the Addin that has bought their survival at the cost of centuries of silence. Now those who have kept faith with the ancient gods for a millennium stand at the cusp of a new era–the time of the Seed.

It begins in a large round valley in the mountains of northeastern Oregon. One day Aranka Miko is a small-town student. The next, she’s a prisoner, a reviled mutant and not even considered human.

At the same time, a young doctor code-named Kenyen fights with a band of international outlaws in a clandestine war with impossible odds. His mission is to infiltrate the Addin labs in Idaho where those who carry the genetic code of the Kyrennei are being studied… and murdered.

Kenyen is barely keeping his cover, when Aranka turns up in his lab. She is not like the other young people imprisoned there. For one thing, she can see that he isn’t Addin. A careless word from her could destroy the resistance and doom Kenyen’s soul. But she could also bring unimagined hope.

Can one girl hold “the seed,” the first flicker of hope in a millennium? Can she even survive one more day in the labs?
Cross urban fantasy with contemporary dystopia and you get The Soul and the Seed, the opening book of a new series that you can’t put down. It’s the story of a young woman who doesn’t fit the mold, a band of international freedom fighters in the heart of America and half-forgotten legends coming to life. Constant emotional tension and living, breathing characters make this an unforgettable saga.

Any Witch Way You Can

By Amanda M. Lee

Bay Winchester is having a tough week.
As the local editor of Hemlock Cove’s only newspaper, she just happens to be present when a body is found in an area corn maze. To make matters worse, the police believe the murder may have something to do with the occult.
This wouldn’t be a problem for a normal reporter, but since Bay is descended from a well-known line of actual witches, the town is understandably on edge.
Between the suspicious townspeople, the befuddled police presence and that random hot biker guy that may or may not have something to do with the murder — Bay has her hands full.
When you add the typical family problems, multiplying ghosts — and one monster of a zit that she’s sure came from her aunt’s curse — Bay is just struggling to make it through the week.
Of course, when the killer sets his sights on Bay, things could get a whole lot worse.

Note: These books are full of sarcasm and are a little bit snarky — so read only if you like to laugh and you aren’t easily offended. This is the first book in the Wicked Witches of the Midwest mystery series.

Warrior Lore: Scandinavian Ballads

By Ian Cumptsey

Thor resorts to cross-dressing in a bid to recover his stolen hammer. The hero Widrick Waylandsson comes face to face with a troll in the forest. A king’s daughter is seized from a convent in rural Sweden. A young fighter has to show off his skill in skiing and shooting for King Harald Hardrada. And more…

The medieval Scandinavian ballads in this collection tell stories of champions and fighters, vikings, and trolls, drawing on Norse mythology and heroic legend. There are riddles, and there are appearances from Thor, Loki, Sigurd, and other figures from the myths of the Edda and from history. Narrative ballads were part of an oral folk music tradition in Scandinavia, and were first written down around 1600, although the ballads themselves are older. These new English verse translations are mainly based on Swedish tradition.

Whill of Agora: Book 1

By Michael Ploof

From USA Today bestselling author Michael James Ploof

Every so often, an epic adventure emerges that makes the blood surge, the spine tingle, and the heart smile page after exhilarating page. Such is Whill of Agora, Michael James Ploof’s action-packed fantasy that visits strange new lands as it unveils how one exceptional young man named Whill makes full use of fierce wits, superior skills, and relentless will to help defend the land of Agora from the monstrous Draggard. With plenty of drama and action packed battle scenes, Whill of Agora will enthrall anyone on the quest for great adventure, good times, and an infectiously optimistic outlook on even the darkest and most dangerous of days.

It is the year 5170 in the land Agora, where humans, dwarves, and elves have existed in peace for centuries. Now, however, the human King Addakon has invaded and waged war on neighboring Isladon. The once peaceful Kingdoms of Agora are on the brink of continental war. The Dark Elf Eadon, and his army of Dragon-Elf crossbreeds, the Draggard, threaten to conquer all kingdoms.

Enter young Whill, a nineteen-year-old ranger with battle savvy and untapped abilities. Having spent years roaming Agora and training with his mentor Abram, Whill has become a bright intellectual and a master of combat. What he seeks most, however, is the identity of his birth parents. Instead, he finds a tumultuous terrain and a prophecy placing him in the center of the struggle.

Along the way, Whill encounters an equally inspired group of companions that are matched in skill and mission. These include Rhunis the Dragon Slayer, the young Tarren, the fearless Dwarf Roakore, the beguiling warrior Elf Avriel, and the powerful Zerafin. As Whill joins forces, he forges bonds far mightier than their escalating travails. With high adventure and fierce friendship, Whill of Agora will capture your imagination and grip your heart during every super-charged escapade that Agora’s bold and grinning brotherhood embraces.

Whill of Agora features a complete map of Agora so that you can easily maneuver through the wilds and bustling cities alike. Click the “Look inside” feature to view map.

With its rich history, ‘page turner’ pacing, unique magic system and majestic lands, the first book in the Whill of Agora series immerses the reader in a beautiful and believable world wrought with danger, war, manipulation, and mayhem.

Wood Cow Chronicles

By Rick Johmson

A heroine who never intended to lead a revolution…

A band of offbeat rebels determined to turn age-old tyranny on its head…

The High One at Maev Astuté and his ancient slaving system. Overpowering. Impenetrable. Final…

Normally, this would be a battle to the last beast standing, but not this time. This is a story of eccentric, unexpected rebels who surprise by being wholly different from anything their enemies expect. In this epic saga, victory will go not to the strongest power, but to the first to think differently.

If the High One’s brutal system is to be destroyed, the rebels will need to penetrate impregnable illusions, out-plot the world’s greatest plotters, survive vicious attacks, and confront their own deepest fears. But in the end, the greatest danger to their success will be the alluring power of illusion and unthinking belief to control.

Kings and dragons, warriors and scholars, would-be prophets and rebels, all discover that the question—What is real, and what is not?—is the ultimate question.

This bundled set includes the four full-length novels of the Wood Cow Chronicles fantasy series: Helga: Out of Hedgelands (Book One), The Overending (Book Two), Silversion (Book Three), and Willowers (Book Four).

The Beast of the North

By Alaric Longward

The Nine Worlds have been sundered from each other and the gods during the goddess Hel’s War long ago, but in the land of Midgard the years have passed relatively peacefully. Men govern men, and there are wars, there is peace and life is as it should be.

For Red Midgard, times are changing, however. The harsh, freedom-loving northern land faces the animosity of the mighty High King, but also a threat of war with its few allies, as King Morag is rumored to look for any reason to go to war with his allies. Maskan and Sand, thieves of Dagnar, discover a web of conspiracies to topple the king before it is too late, and soon, they have a good reason to tie their fates with those who would fight the king.

But not all is as it seems, and layers of truths and lies make the road dark and dangerous. Our heroes must navigate very murky waters of betrayal, elemental magic, love, and loyalty to save their land and to find revenge.

Trysmoon Book 1: Ascension

As the days of torture pile up like the snow, Gen’s searches for death. But the day is at hand when the shattered shards of the world will knit together again and the world’s slain god be reborn.

Love & War

By Jennifer Malone Wright

A war is brewing between the hunters and the vampires and Chloe is determined to strike against the vampires before they have a chance to attack the hunter community.

While Chloe tries to convince the hunter community, and most especially tries to convince Drew, that they should move against the vampires first instead of waiting for an attack, the group of new friends—Oscar, Alice, Drew, Chloe and Christina—are distracted by news reports of a vigilante who is saving innocent humans against what can only be vampire attacks. Fearing this vigilante will cause unwanted attention that will expose the vampire-hunter community with each person he rescues, the group attempts to discover who this mysterious potential vampire hunter is.

When they catch up with him, the group learns a shocking revelation that might just change everything for everyone in Arcadia Falls, but will have the most profound impact on Chloe herself.

The Arcadia Falls Chronicles is the continuation of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter. Following the format of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter, The Arcadia Falls Chronicles is serialized into several novella-length stories.

Dark Angel Box Set Books 1-3

By Hannah Peach

This is a box set of books 1-3 of the Dark Angel YA fantasy series: Angelfire, Angelstone, Angelsong.

A gifted mortal. His angel Guardian. A love written in the stars.

Forget everything you know about angels.

You’ll likely find Alyxandria slicing demons with her blades rather than plucking at harp strings. Whether it’s with weapons, unarmed or with the “borrowed magics” of distilled angel-blood tattoos, she trains harder than any other Seraphim warrior to prove she is nothing like her parents who abandoned her to become Rogues.

When Alyx starts displaying the signs of a strange new magic, most don’t believe her and no one has answers for her. The web of lies she uncovers will shatter her world and she’ll be forced to risk everything for Israel, a gifted mortal she barely knows.

Alyx and Israel will soon realize that their destinies are inexplicably tied – and that their choices will determine the fate of Earth itself.

It begins in Angelfire.

Balanced on the Blade’s Edge

By Lindsay Bruoker

Colonel Ridge Zirkander isn’t the model of military professionalism—he has a tendency to say exactly what’s on his mind, and his record has enough demerits to wallpaper the hull of an airship—but as the best fighter pilot in the Iskandian army, he’s used to a little leniency from his superiors. Until he punches the wrong diplomat in the nose and finds himself issued new orders: take command of a remote prison mine in the inhospitable Ice Blades Mountains. Ridge has never been in charge of anything larger than a flier squadron—what’s he supposed to do with a frozen fortress full of murderers and rapists? Not to mention the strange woman who shows up right before he arrives…

Sardelle Terushan wakes from three hundred years in a mage stasis shelter, only to realize that she is the last of the Referatu, the sorcerers who once helped protect Iskandia from conquerors. Their subterranean mountain community was blown up in a treacherous sneak attack by soldiers who feared their power. Everyone Sardelle ever knew is dead, and the sentient soulblade she has been bonded to since her youth is buried in the core of the mountain. Further, what remains of her home has been infested by bloodthirsty miners commanded by the descendants of the very soldiers who destroyed her people.

Sardelle needs help to reach her soulblade—her only link to her past and her last friend in the world. Her only hope is to pretend she’s one of the prisoners while trying to gain the commander’s trust. But lying isn’t her specialty, especially when the world has changed so much in the intervening centuries, and if Colonel Zirkander figures out who she truly is, he’ll be duty-bound to sentence her to the only acceptable punishment for sorcerers: death.
