The degree of it went past loathing and abhorrence. She held him in complete execration

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

 

Adam Gowans is the youngest of five Air Force brats, out of which his siblings have voted him the weirdest. He loves anything that deals with stories, including movies, novels, television dramas, music, video games, manga/manhwa, and webtoons.
In his mid-twenties, he lived and taught English in South Korea for four years before returning to the States to live, like many LDS authors, in Utah.
His first novel is On Angelic Wings, which has a planned sequel, but the sequel will be released after two other novels that are calling for his attention.

 

Ever since magic caused his mother’s death, Ha-Neul, crown prince of Balhae, hates witches and the magic they wield. He has instituted harsh laws against all magic users.
 

 

Lisa is a young witch working undercover as a servant in his palace, hoping to gain freedom for her people. The last thing the two expect is to fall in love. But when Ha-Neul learns that Lisa is not only a witch, but the daughter of the Prince of Vires, land of witches, he banishes her. Distracted by heartbreak, he is caught off-guard by a military coup.
In hiding and on the run, Ha-Neul swallows his pride and travels with his siblings to Vires, planning to beg Lisa’s aid, only to learn that she has mysteriously vanished.
Now his only hope in reclaiming his kingdom and reuniting with Lisa lies in the remote Northern Mountains, a country no one has ever penetrated and rumored home of a powerful magic source. There, Ha-Neul learns that a being powerful beyond comprehension has been carefully guiding his destiny. But if Ha-Neul can’t let go of his hatred of all things magic, and accept the new path offered to him, it will mean the destruction of his entire world.

 

Snippet:
He suppressed a shudder when her demeanor worsened. “I wasn’t entirely sure for the past couple of weeks, but now I’m convinced. You hate me,” he searched her face, looking deep into her eyes.
Lisa laughed, but it held no warmth, no amusement. “Yes, it is difficult for me to conceal it when you are in front of me.”
“Why?” His voice was a little soft, and his chest felt cold.
“Because you’re a monster.” Lisa spoke in Haeche.
He never believed he could see her countenance sour as much as it did at that moment. She no longer hid the extent of her hate for him, and it terrified him. The degree of it went past loathing and abhorrence. She held him in complete execration.

No. Can’t think of them now. They’re gone, and I can’t change it

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

 

William C. Tracy is a North Carolina native and a lifelong fan of science fiction and fantasy. He has a master’s in mechanical engineering, and has both designed and operated heavy construction machinery. He has also trained in Wado-Ryu karate since 2003, and runs his own dojo. He is an avid video and board gamer, a reader, and of course, a writer.

 


In his spare time, he wrangles three cats. He and his wife enjoy putting their pets in cute little costumes and making them cosplay for the annual Christmas card.
You can visit him at williamctracy.com.

On a bright August day, the sun disappears.
 
Sam van Oen barely escapes freezing to death in his house, as his watch stops and fire ceases to burn. He is pulled into the Nether—a nexus between ten diverse alien cultures—where he meets two maji who can control the musical foundation of the universe. While coping with anxiety attacks prompted by his new surroundings, Sam must learn to hear and change the Symphony, and thus reality, in order to discover what happened to his home.Sam is surrounded by aliens, both strange and familiar. Soon, he meets sister and brother twins, also new to the Nether, who support him during his anxiety attacks. Sam finds he is attracted to both of them, and does not want to choose.

But more freezing voids like the one that started his journey are appearing, and Sam’s chances of getting back are fading. The Assembly of Species is threatening to dissolve and the maji are being attacked by those they protect, while rumors grow of an ancient, shape-changing species of assassins, returning to wage war.

The Dissolution is coming.

 

Snippet:
Sam was reading when the sun dimmed.
As he looked up from his book, he caught the sky outside his window shading into twilight. Overhead, the light blinked off, then on and the music playing on his laptop—Beethoven’s 7th—croaked a discordant jumble of notes before the screen went black. A breath of cold air left goosebumps on his arms.
“What the—” Sam pushed up from the chair as the overhead light faded again. His breath caught in his throat, like he had swallowed a lump of ice. His room was not large, made smaller by the piles of boxes making up his collection, and now shadows rose between stacks of waist-high containers. He wormed through them in the dim light, heart racing. Was this really happening, or was he having an attack? Why now? It took two tries to pick up his grandfather’s pocket watch from where it rested on an end table beside his bed. His hands shook, and the thump of his heartbeat nearly overpowered the rhythmic ticking transmitted through his palm. He focused on the mechanical beat—let it inform his body with the regular beat of time.
Calm down. Stillness evaded him, left him unsteady. Everything is going dark in the middle of the day. At least the watch was working. He made sure to keep it wound, and kept it safe in his room.
While watching the darkened sky, his other hand fingered the lid of a small shoebox. His collection of boxes contained grass clippings, shells, sand, and other things, bought by friends and customers of his aunt. They reminded him of favorite sights and smells. However, the shoebox contained things more precious than the rest: half a belt, stiff from water damage, and the heel of a woman’s left shoe, sheared off cleanly.
No. Can’t think of them now. They’re gone, and I can’t change it. He shivered at another gust of cold air. His room felt like late January instead of August. He eyed the window, but the thought of opening it—letting in the places he didn’t know—made his hands sweat. His hand left the box, moving to the windowpane. He hissed and shook his fingers. The window was colder than the house, which meant outside must be too. He breathed out and raised his watch to his ear, listening to the steady beat.
Is this all in my head? He hadn’t heard a transformer blow, and there was no storm. It was so quiet his rough breathing was like a train. He rubbed his arms, and a quick touch on his laptop’s case nearly numbed his finger. His cellphone was powered down and wouldn’t restart.
Aunt Martha will know what to do. Get to safety. Sam weaved through the precise stacks of boxes, trembling. She would be in her sewing shop. Sam wiped sweaty hands on his shorts before pulling a coat from the closet and socks from a drawer. He dropped his watch in a pocket of the coat, but kept one hand on it. If the power outage kept up, he couldn’t log in for his shift in technical support. What will they think? Will they fire me? He couldn’t get his ethics essay done either, and he had to email it in by tomorrow night for the ethical theories class at his online community college.
The chill air in the hall made him regret the shorts, but he shrugged his coat on, then leaned against the wall, pulling his socks on carefully. If the seams were going the wrong way, they’d just distract him, and there was too much going on already. He closed his eyes. Don’t shut down. Keep moving.
The dark wood-paneled hallway was cold even through his socks, and Sam made a detour to the front door to get his sneakers, adjusting his feet in them, making sure the laces were the same length. It took two tries with his shaking hands. The dark was deepening outside, and by the time he got to the other end of the house, he was using his sense of touch more than sight to navigate.
He met Aunt Martha coming from the small one-room addition that served as her workshop. She held a flickering beeswax candle in her hand. It’s not just in my head.

Can one woman evade an alien empire to save her son’s life?

Friday, July 13th, 2018

 

 

Lauren H Salisbury was an English teacher for sixteen years with an MA in Education. She is now a writer who dabbles with tutoring and lives with her husband and a room full of books in Yorkshire, England. 
 
She likes to spend winters abroad, following the sunshine and becoming the seasonal envy of her friends. When she’s not writing, she can be found spending time with family, reading, walking, crafting, or cooking. Courage is her debut novel.

 

 
Can one woman evade an alien empire to save her son’s life?
Gilla and Elias have the perfect life—or as perfect as life can be for slaves living deep in the Esarelian Empire. Elias wants freedom for his precious wife and daughter, and the rest of their people, and he is willing to fight to get it. Pregnant with her second child, Gilla only wants a happy, healthy family who share a strong faith in the God of Old Earth and to get through her workload each day. 

When the Esarelians decide to teach their rebellious slaves a lesson they will never forget, Gilla’s entire life is turned upside down. She must trust that God has a plan to protect her new-born son, and have the courage to follow it, choosing the strangest of allies in an effort to ensure his survival.

Courage is a science fiction retelling of the Biblical story of Moses’s birth. It has strong, quirky characters, strange alien worlds, and a gripping plot with a twist on the original.

 

The next book in this Series is available in September! Find out more about that book HERE!

 
Snippets:
Fear consumed her, tearing her heart from her chest with its force, but she looked at her son and forged on. Breathing heavily through the terror, she kept putting one foot in front of the other for his sake.
(Gilla during the culling)
Years of intense heavy labour and his need to protect his family fuelled his rage and tightened his aim. It would have worked if he’d been fighting humans.
(Elias during the Selection)

This time he was unable to stop his finger from slowly rubbing the thin line that ran across the side of his neck. He would keep the scar until the last human had suffered beyond endurance and been exterminated.

Thanks
to the encouragement of friends and family, I found a passion in

like to explore to new types of characters such as Sandmen and

Such as A Sandman’s Forbidden Love. “This book plagued my dreams
every night till I got it all out.”

 

Now
Angels are also a part of my obsession, I will sit on the computer
doing extensive research on both Sandmen and Angels trying to get my
facts straight.

 

Then,
I also create Art Journals that can be cross generational from
thirteen to sixty years younger, My goal with these types of books
are to reach people who need that extra feel good in their lives.

Immortal as Beza might be, she soon finds her life, and queendom crumbling underneath her

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

 

Kaci Morgan is the author of The Queen Immortal Series. She found her passion for writing later in life, but for the last eight years she has worked on honing the craft to the best of her ability by attending local classes, seminars, and reading books about the craft and in the genre. 
 
As a wife and mother, she feels that writing has helped her to find a sense of purpose, and to understand that hard work and determination are the keys to unlocking our dreams.
Secrets can be agents of destruction, Queen Beza learns after three-hundred years of ruling. Unable to produce an heir, and on the hunt for a sibling who should have never been born, Beza struggles to understand what the Gods and Goddesses have planned for her. Unable to come to terms with past discretions, she pushes away what might be her last chance at love, focusing only on the murder and betrayal going on all around her.
 
 

 

Immortal as Beza might be, she soon finds her life, and queendom crumbling underneath the burden of a brother, so named the lost king, who holds more legitimacy to the throne than she herself. Can she find him before his shadow becomes her devastation?

 

Snippet:
“I do not mean to disregard you as queen,” Samia
said. “But there is a hidden universe amongst all of us that lies in our
unconscious minds. We all have secrets, my queen, and this world would be very different if we all chose to steal them from each other.”
Beza thought about this for a moment. Her secrets
would indeed change the world if they were revealed. She might be
step down as queen. They might even try to kill her, but would
to figure out how? She was certain they could if they tried enough
if they got hold of the forbidden page in The Book of Queens

A
Knight’s Love
The
Campbell Brothers Trilogy Book 2
 
Fighting
alongside his two brothers, Garvin Campbell of Clan Campbell is
content to remain in the shadows. After all, he’s lived most of his
adult life as a Knight Templar, and that requires him being in the
shadows, not seen or heard. “Non nobis, Domine, non nobis, sed
Nomini tuo da gloriam; (Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto
thy Name, give glory).” That was the rule of the Templars until
they were forced to disband at the request of King Philip IV “the
Fair” of France.

 

Many
of the Order’s members in France were arrested and tortured. However,
Scotland did not get involved in the arrests and prosecution of the
Knights. There was no recognized king of the Scots, and with the
Bruce having already been excommunicated, the Roman church had little
say in Scottish politics, so Garvin returned to his clan to use his
skills in the fight against the English for Scottish
independence.

 

Having
been told all her life to avoid the Campbells, the last thing Lady
Helen is thinking about is falling in love with a Campbell, and a
Knight Templar at that. She is aware the Templar Knight has taken a
vow of abstinence, so when Garvin Campbell comes to her clan to
deliver the decree from Robert the Bruce, Helen is unprepared for the
connection she immediately feels for the knight. She dismisses it as
butterflies at meeting a knight, but fate has other plans for her and
Garvin, as he becomes her reason for living and he forgoes his
training of remaining in the shadows as he surrenders to love.

forever warring with opposing clans for Scottish independence. What
he doesn’t expect is that, like his brother Alasdair, he, too, will

O’Connor.

 

Lady
Brianne O’Connor has vowed never to take a husband, and as she is
her father’s only child and heir, he does not dissuade her but
allows her to live as she pleases. After her new husband is murdered,
or so she thinks, she takes to unexplainable weeping, spending all

him. That is the only place in which she feels safe… the only room
where she can be with the love of her life. She is torn with grief by
his untimely death.

comes upon a woman in a vision, and now he must find a way to connect
with her… a woman he is convinced he knows but, for the life of
him, can’t recall from where. Bent on finding the woman who stirs

his arms again….

Hidden Necromancer Series Book 1
by
Rhiannon Frater
Genre:
YA Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy
 
When
I was younger, my mother saved my settlement from the Unblessed Dead
that would have killed us all. It cost her everything to reveal her
necromancy and sent shockwaves through our stringent religious
settlement. Convicted of heresy against our sacred Lost Texts, she
died soon after. 

 

Since
then, I have worked hard to maintain my Pious Standing so that when I
turn eighteen I will be selected by a suitable husband at the Bridal
Auction. 

 

As
the large clock in town square ticks down to my eighteenth birthday,
the dead have been appearing in my garden. If I’m discovered, I’ll
face the Necromancer Trial just as my mother, oldest sister, and I
did all those years ago. This time I fear I will not survive it.

 

To
add to my worries, an enigmatic handsome young man has arrived in the
settlement. Around him swirls a green aura only I can see. Is he here
to help me? Or does he have more nefarious plans?

 

My
name is Ilyse Nott, and I fear I am a necromancer.

 

If
I am, my life is over.

Issues of change, what makes a healthy relationship, and the consequences of greed and violence

Monday, June 11th, 2018
Isaac
Comett: My Life as a Shard Knight
by
R.T. Driver
Genre:
YA SciFi Fantasy
 
It’s
2003, and the coldest of seasons has arrived, filled with monsters,
robots and dead beat dads.

 

 

Isaac
believed his only job was to blow off homework, play video games and
get a date with his crush, the cunning local delinquent June Farnell;
not defend his hometown from vicious space pirates!

 

 

On
one Fall afternoon, he and his friends are attacked by aliens seeking
the Memorite Shards; crystals that grant the user superpowers. His
comfortable life with his mom and younger brother is gone, and he’s
forced to fight a secret war against the merciless Cyborg, Straum.
Even when they gain the shard’s protection, more questions about
their unyielding attackers arise, and their only source for answers
is another shady alien, and fellow Memorite user, Chenzo.

 

 

Lying
to his mom and swinging a sword become Isaac’s new life as he, June
and the others train to become Shard Knights; defenders of the
Memorite. Unfortunately for him, he’s the team’s weakest link, and
surviving the one year bonding period to the crystal seems less
likely with each battle. And what’s worse, his estranged father Zack
is back in town after a year long hiatus, ready to “set things
right”…again.

 

 

Will
Isaac defeat Straum’s army of mechanical warriors, save his family
and live long enough to put on his graduation cap, or will Comett
burn out like so many others before him?

 

 

Join
Isaac, June, the slick talking Austin, his brainy beauty girlfriend
Emma, and the comic-book obsessed Fiora in this epic sci-fi rumble
and see what being a hero is REALLY all about!

 

 

-Realistic
characters of different races and backgrounds that deal with true to
life issues, such as school drama, dating, divorced parents and
neglect.

 

 

-No
lengthy, needless descriptions make for a satisfying
read.

 

 

-Immersive,
over-the-top action influenced by video games, anime, and science
fiction movies while seasoned with emotional encounters throughout.
Feel like a part of a super hero team!

Isaac
Comett: Interstellar Warrior
 
Isaac,
June, Austin and the others are halfway through their bonding period
with the powerful Memorite Crystals, but their adventure is far from
over.

 

 

Fighting
Androids and Seekers has become second nature to the team, but their
unity is put to the test when personal feelings from a bad breakup
get in the way of being heroes. With graduation only weeks away,
their parents growing suspicious of their activities, and two of the
warriors ready to rip each other’s heads off, it seems like things
couldn’t get worse…

 

 

But
they do.

 

 

Isaac
and the others depart for the world of Rudesia to Recall the
remaining Shards. There’s no rest for the tired friends, as not only
do they have a rich, stuck-up Count on their tails, but complications
from a new, less welcome addition to their group.

 

 

The
chance for an early freedom and end to the Memorite War has come!
Will Isaac’s emotional wounds heal in time, or will they lead to a
deathblow for the Shard Knights?

 

 

-Picks

-Crazy
sci-fi action throughout!

Nightmare
The
Last Princess of Latura Book 1
by
Darren Simon
Genre:
Middle-Grade/New Adult Fantasy
 
Charlee
Smelton is an average thirteen-year-old girl struggling to adapt
after her family moves to San Francisco. She thinks her biggest
obstacle is facing the bullies who brand her a nerd and a dweeb.
She’s wrong. Her life is about to change—for the worse. First,
she receives a gift of the ugliest, most old fashioned bike she has
ever seen. Try as she might to ditch it in the city, she just can’t
seem to escape that very mysterious two-wheeler. Then come the
visions of a world across a dimensional divide, a princess in fear
for her life and a dark knight pursuing her. Are they just dreams or
something more? For Charlee, everything she ever thought she knew
about herself soon crumbles as she starts down a path to discover her
true self, and she will need that hunk-of-junk bike more than she
could ever imagine. Without it, she might not be able to find the
hero in herself—the hero she must become to save her friends,
family, her city—the world—from an evil only she can defeat. An
evil she allows into this world.

The Last Princess of

A
month has passed since fourteen-year-old Charlee Smelton discovered
her magical abilities and faced her great aunt, Theodora, in a life
or death struggle to protect Earth. A month has passed since she
tricked Theodora back across the dimensional gateway that brought
Theodora to Earth. Since then, Charlee—now fully aware that she is
part of a noble bloodline from another world…another dimension…has
grown stronger in her magic, aided by her protector, a shapeshifter
sent to Earth to protect her.
But
the terrible dreams won’t stop.
Theodora
lives, and if Charlee’s dreams of death and fields of spilled blood
are true, her great aunt has avenged herself on that world across the
dimensional divide. 
Charlee
knows what she must do. The fight is not over. She must travel across
the gateway to the home of her ancestors and face Theodora one more
time. But doing so may cost Charlee more than her life. The same
medallion her great aunt desires so much—a medallion Charlee
possesses—could make her just as evil as her great aunt. 
Can
Charlee stave off the twisted tendrils of the medallion long enough
to defeat Theodora—for good—or will evil consume her? Can she
even survive so far from home? Her only hope may rest in the Lord of
the Dragons, but that beast turned his back on her grandfather long
ago…

Darren
Simon resides in Southern California where he works as a college
English teacher after a career as a newspaper journalist. His love
for writing began with a love for reading when his grandmother gave
him a wonderful gift—a brown paper bag filled with comic books from
the 1960s and ’70s. From there, he moved on to Choose Your Own
Adventure
books. Eventually he discovered the works of J.R.R.
Tolkien, which solidified his interest in writing epic fantasy and
science fiction tales.
So
far, he has focused his writing on middle grade and young adult
fiction to inspire young readers just as he was inspired to read and
write at a young age.
He
self-published his first novel though iUniverse and immediately went
on to write the second book in the series. Upon completing the second
book, he decided to seek more traditional publishing. After countless
rejection letters, a small independent publisher—Divertir
Publishing—decided to pick up the series, a fantasy about a
teen-aged girl who learns her family is actually from an alternate
dimension, and only she has the power to protect Earth from a
sorceress from her world—who just happens to be her great aunt.
Divertir republished the first book, titled, Guardian’s
Nightmare
, in 2015. The second book in the series, Guardian’s
Return
, was released in April.
Darren
has also written another series—a young adult historical pirate
fantasy set in the golden age of piracy, mixing historical pirates
and pirate hunters with his fictional characters in a time-traveling,
swashbuckling tale. The first book in that series, The Dangerous
Legacy,
was published in 2016 by Tell-Tale Publishing. The second
book in the series, The Deadly Waters, is due out later this
year.
All
his books are available at Amazon.com and Barnes&noble.com.
Darren,
who lives with his wife, Sandra and two sons, Daniel and Jacob, and
two crazy dogs, in the Valley, is continuing to write and develop new
stories, including a young adult novel now in the hands of literary
agency.

There
is no wrong or right way to deal with a death. Or to grieve in a way
that is expected. The loss of a loved one can hit you in ways you
could never imagine. At least, it did to Hunter Holland. College
Junior Hunter knows he messes up; he knows he hates his life; he also
knows he blames his father for his mother’s death. What he doesn’t
know is that his life is about to change–all thanks to Louisa
Dawson. Louisa, the freshman, is sweet. Shy. Innocent. She doesn’t
care for boys, but rather books. Hunter is crazy, a player, and as
cocky as they come. The college ‘bad news’ is everything she
wants to stay away from, yet he is everything she is drawn to.
Focused on her studies, Louisa doesn’t have time for Hunter who is
both distracting and disruptive, but Louisa is the breath of fresh
air Hunter needs. She is the only girl he is willing to work for. She
is also the only girl that understands why Hunter is living the life
he is. Louisa is determined to prove to Hunter that living in a
tormented past is never going to guarantee a happy future. They say

The Nameless Soldier
Chapter One

 

      

Tarvic woke to the sound of a distant yell, abruptly silenced. He pushed his blankets aside and sat up, puzzled, but heard only the light patter of rain on the canvas. “What was that?”
Drevel, his roommate in the barracks and tentmate out on campaigns like this, stirred and rolled over. “What?”
“I heard something. Someone shouting.”
“It’s probably just another drill.” But Drevel sat up too, shoving his own blankets away, as Tarvic crawled over and untied the tent flap.
A blast of wintry air and raindrops greeted him as he leaned out, peering across the tent-studded hillside. Clouds hid the moon and stars, and on every side the thick dark of the forest leaned in from the edges of the large clearing. But the telltale flickering light of distant torches sent shadows leaping over tents and across the open spaces between them. Why would someone be using torches out here? Any soldier in camp had easy access to lanterns among the supplies.
Something was wrong. Very wrong. Tarvic pulled back into the tent and yanked on his breeches and jacket.
They both heard the next yell, closer this time, and then the unmistakable clash of swords. Both men snatched up their own swords, jamming their feet into their boots and fumbling for shields. From all around them, shouts of alarm erupted as men in their company woke up.
And then the enemy was upon them. Horses exploded through the camp, trampling tents and the soldiers just crawling out of them. Riders leaned low off their mounts’ backs, swinging swords and waving torches.
Halfway out of his tent, Tarvic threw himself flat on his face to avoid a slash that would probably have decapitated him. He scrambled to his feet, only to be knocked off them again by a blow that he barely caught on his shield.
Light, shadows, horses, blades, rain. Chaos raged through the clearing to the sound of crashing metal, pounding hooves, shouts of challenge and desperation. Tarvic regained his feet and fought as best he could from the ground while enemy riders thundered around him. Dodging and ducking, he aimed for the men’s legs and tried to keep out from under their horses’ hooves. With no idea who he was fighting or why, his only goal to stay alive for the next heartbeat, he dodged and darted through the tumult looking for spots where horses and enemy swords weren’t. All around him, men fought and ran and crumpled to lie as limply as the trampled tents.
Slipping and stumbling in the mud, Tarvic felt a surge of satisfaction as his sword met flesh and an enemy yelled in pain. And then the man wheeled his horse and charged back toward him, and Tarvic turned to flee.
He tripped on something soft that groaned. Pain shot through Tarvic’s wrist as he caught his fall, and only a quick roll saved him from being trampled as the man’s horse cantered over him.
Its rider wheeled again, and Tarvic rose to his knees, barely raising his shield in time to protect his face. The force of the blow threw him backward, jarring his already sore wrist.
Another horse leaped over him, and Tarvic cried out in pain as a hoof struck him on the shoulder. He stumbled to his feet, ducking low to present as small a target as possible, and ran through the melee.
He saw fewer people on foot now, more obstacles in the mud. Was it cowardly to flee from a battle you couldn’t win? Nothing in Tarvic’s eight months in the military had prepared him for this. Not counting occasional minor border skirmishes, the kingdom of Alasia hadn’t seen an actual war in six generations. Besides routine patrols, city peacekeeping, and the frequent drills and training, the military’s primary duties involved escorting merchant wagons through robber-frequented stretches of rural highway and keeping an eye on the sections of coastline where seafaring raiders were known to attack. Tarvic had never fought in a battle that involved more than a handful of opponents at a time, and none of those opponents had been anywhere near this organized — or this deadly.
If we escape, we can regroup somewhere safer and — A hard blow to the back knocked him to the ground again as another horse pounded over him. Giving up all pretense of courage, Tarvic scrambled to his feet once more and fled for the edge of the clearing and the relative safety of the trees beyond. I can’t do anything here. They’re going to slaughter us all!
He was practically there when another rider appeared in front of him, leaning low with sword outstretched. Tarvic almost impaled himself on the blade, raising his shield just in time. He fought back frantically as the man slashed, swinging his weapon again and again. I need my horse! Military training had included nothing about how to fight a mounted enemy from the ground. But Lightning was tethered in the row of makeshift stalls on the far side of the camp, probably prancing restlessly under his blanket and wondering why his rider didn’t come to spur him into battle.
Tarvic didn’t even see the blow that almost killed him. His ears barely registered the thudding of more galloping hooves from behind, nearly drowned out by the rain and the sounds of battle. But the world exploded in light and pain as something struck the back of his head harder than anything had ever hit him before.
He lurched forward, feeling his sword drop from limp fingers. Managing two steps before his legs buckled, he was just conscious enough to recognize the urgent need to crawl. Don’t stop. Don’t stop. Don’t stop. Or they’ll kill you out here. That was the only thought left in his mind as he pulled himself toward the concealing shadows behind the line of tree trunks. And then even that faded, giving way to darkness.

Of
Cinder and Bone Book 2
by
Kyoko M
Genre:
SciFi Fantasy Romance
 
The
world’s deadliest dragon, the infamous Baba Yaga, is loose on the
streets of Tokyo. 

 

 

Dr.
Rhett “Jack” Jackson and Dr. Kamala Anjali have been tasked
with helping the government take down a dragon the size of a
Tyrannosaurus Rex after it sends part of the city up in flames.
Things worsen when they lose track of dragon in none other than
Aokigahara, the Suicide Forest–a section of woods in Japan that is
rumored to be one of the most haunted places on earth. They’ve also
got the yakuza who cloned the dragon hellbent on getting her back,
and they don’t care who they kill in order to re-capture the
dragon.

 

 

Jack
and Kamala are joined by CIA field agent William Fry and
dragon-hunting expert Juniper Snow as they infiltrate the forest to

Hi
all, I’m
Jessi
Mcpherson
.
I live in a small town in Iowa right on the banks of The Mighty
Mississippi. I started writing when I was about 10 years old. Almost
every girl has a journal but I not only had fun stories of the day
but poems and short stories that popped in my head. I love fantasy
and romance novels and read almost daily. I like to find my
inspiration in everyday life. That’s one of my goals is to find one
thing every day that inspires me. I grew up an army brats so I have
traveled to a few places over the years. I have two amazing children
and a very amazing husband. They thankfully put up with crazy work
schedules because being a mom and a writer isn’t enough but I am also
the general manager of Sidelines Sports bar in my home town. No
matter how busy I find time for it all. I do hope you enjoy my books
and I look forward to writing more.

C.
J. Rose lives in Central Illinois. Originally from just south of
Chicago, Rose is not married and has no children. The passion for
writing took root in high school where she began writing song lyrics
and poetry. On top of literature, Rose has a keen love for all things
nerdy and sci-fi. On a quiet night, you can find her curled up with
an episode or Doctor Who, Arrow, Firefly, and more. C. J. also
belongs to a theatre organization located in her town. The devotion
to musicals and theatre has led her to be a part of over 10 shows as
an actress, and over 20 as a staff person. Lastly, because she wasn’t
busy enough, C. J. has her own bow company where she sells hair bows,
bowties, scarves, lip balms, key fobs and more.

 

 

 

When it comes
to her writing, it was an itch that needed to be scratched. While
working on a cookbook, and reading her typical fantasy fiction novel,
the idea came to her. She took the love of all the books she has read
and turned then into a novel of her own. Published by Burning Horse
Media in 2014, Generation Son: Bridge of the Gods was born. Selling
over 100 copies in the first month. In 2015, Rose finished penning
the second novel in the series; To Rescue a King. Being new to the
game, Rose has struggled to do most of it on her own. One thing she
vows, is to never give up.
The focus of the novel series is to
not only bring her fantasy and ideas to life, but take those stories
and make them a fun learning experience for the younger generation.
