Prophecy works with and against those who would heed it

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017
Choices
Meant For Gods
The
Choices Trilogy Book 1
by
Sandy Lender
Genre:
Fantasy
 
Not
even the gods noticed when Chariss was born with the mark of The
Protector. Now she and her wizard guardian seek shelter from a mad
sorcerer in a household not just full of secrets and false hope, but
watched by the god who will unwittingly reveal her role in an
impending war.

 

 


When
an orphan sets aside a lifetime of running and fear to accept the
responsibilities of guarding an arrogant deity, can she face the
trials in the prophecies she uncovers? Will Nigel Taiman of her
latest refuge dare to use his dragon heritage to bind her to his
estate or to help her in her duty?

 

 

Choices
Meant for Gods is without a doubt the freshest most engaging high
fantasy novel to come out in years and breathes new life into a tired
genre. The characters leap off the page and the plot is lightning
quick and deftly written with many layers that tease the mind and
imagination. Choices Meant for Gods is not a mere novel; it is a
gorgeous piece of written art. I can hardly wait for the second
book!”

 

Jamieson
Wolf, Linear Reflections

 

Author
of Hope Falls, Electric Pink,

 

Electric
Blue, and Garden City

 

 

In
Choices Meant for Gods, Sandy Lender takes her readers of fantasy
fiction by the hand and leads them through an exciting world filled
with sorcerers, gods, goddesses, dragons, and other mythical
creatures. Through the use of interesting characters and clever
dialogue (“Try not to think, Nicolas. You look so much more
handsome when you’re bewildered.”), she weaves a spell of magic
and fantasy. The only problem for the reader may occur at the end of
the book when they find themselves wanting more and discover they
will have to wait for book two!”

Drake and Julette The Betrayer know she’s there, and their

Readers
will recognize Sandy Lender as the author of the 2007 fantasy novel
“Choices Meant for Gods” from ArcheBooks Publishing, but
the South Florida resident has been writing since she was knee high
to a grasshopper. At the early age of about six, Sandy entertained
the folks in her great grandmother’s apartment building in Southern
Illinois with ghost stories of squeaky spiders. Sandy won a
first-place award with that imagination when she wrote a sequel to
Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” during her school days
in the St. Louis area before earning a degree in English from Truman
State University in Kirksville, Missouri. That led to a career in
journalism where she’s worked for a variety of publications the past
23 years.

 

 


Today
she’s the editorial director of two construction magazines and
publisher of an avian publication. ArcheBooks has released the final
of the “Choices” trilogy, and a number of her YA novels
will get star treatment in 2016 and beyond. Sandy is also a sea
turtle conservationist. She has companion parrots and turtles in her
home who keep her hopping. It takes one ring on her cell phone to
discover she’s remained obsessed with Duran Duran since 1984. She’s
beaten cancer twice, but still battles the IRS. To begin 2016
properly, she welcomes readers to share in the conclusion of
Chariss’s epic story in “Choices Meant for All.”

Sometimes, heroes are never more dangerous than when they’re dead

Epic Fantasy
 
You
don’t become a hero for the money. The money’s nice, sure, but you
become a hero because something inside compels you, drives you to it.
Defending people from monsters simply doesn’t pay well enough to make
it a good career move.

 

 


As
for hunting dragons… well, the money is usually good, but the job
really bites.

 

 

A
group of five professional heroes goes into the lair of the dragon.
Who will win?

 

 

Spoiler:
The dragon.

 

 

But
it turns out killing a hero sometimes does nothing more than make him
even more determined.

 

 

Sometimes,
heroes are never more dangerous than when they’re dead!

Have you ever been Kiss by a Dragon?

Dragon’s Kiss by Mark Miller

A review for readersFavorite.com

I so much enjoyed the tale and story of A Dragon’s Kiss that I couldn’t put it down. It is interesting and entertaining. It certainly transports you from your world into one of fantasy and dreams. I found A Dragon’s Kiss to be clean and wholesome. It has dragons and magic, just the right amount to make it a great story.

Kelan is seven years old and being bullied by another kid in the tribe because he is a peaceful and loving kid. He loves animals and cares for them. A combination that bullies love for their victims. Another problem he has is that he isn’t destined to greatness and his family and tribe people treat him as such…a no one.

Brietta is a new comer and Kelan feels a great connection to her, especially when she tells the bullies (more…)

Light & Dark: The Awakening of the Mageknight

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

A review for readers favorite.com

Light & Darkness: The Awakening of the Mageknight, is a great tale that will entertain you from the first pages. I like the fun journey that this tale took me on. I found Light & Dark: The Awakening of the Mageknight a great clean story and an original tale that will keep you interested to the end.

Danny has started school and he is walking with his friend Alonso toward the front door. As he goes through, a new girl comes by and Danny is so mesmerized by her that she thinks he is holding the door open for her.

After a few days, he finally knows her name and where her locker is. One afternoon, a bully tries to get Danny to fight him. To his surprise, Danny discovers a white ghostly figure emerging from the bully that shows him the moves the bully will make before he does them. Thanks to that, Danny wins in front of many in the school including the new girl, Sabrina.

The problem arises as a teacher observed them fighting and Danny has to stay after school. After many pages of writing essays for the principal, Danny goes out to wait for his mom and the sure punishment that she will inflict. In the dark corridor he sees movements and decide to follow something shadowlike until he gets outside to the Playground. Then a big creature that shouldn’t even exist hears him, and he is in more trouble than with his mom.

This is a very nice read for kids. Though I did like the story, plot and magic it contains, the story needs editing to make it smooth. This will clean the story and cut some of the repetitions too. The page count is a bit high for kids. They don’t have that long attention span. Good story and plot, it just need polish.
