The forest surrounding the tallest mountain is home to a multitude of
dread monsters, each more terrifying than the last, who hunger for
the flesh of unsuspecting travelers foolish enough to venture into
their realm. At the apex of this tall peak, which rises twenty
thousand feet, past deadly glaciers and a river of fire, is a
sanctuary watched over by a forgotten order of mystics skilled in the
art of battle and devastation. In the rear of the sanctuary is a
passage that leads into the mountain, and deep into the heart of the
Earth. At its end are catacombs guarded by a beast so dreadful that
minds will go mad at the sight of it. The door to the catacombs can

spite of the law and ends up branded an outlaw. However fate
intervenes while Gant is on the run and soon he is embroiled in an
odyssey with forces of darkness that can only be vanquished with help

story started with “Fall of the Western Kings”. Now “Child
of Evil” continues the odyssey of Gant, the hero who killed Varg
with his magical sword Valorious and who must now use his strength
and cunning to find and neutralize the child born of evil. This child
is prophesized to lead the demons of the western kingdoms to victory
over the people of the east. Other characters accompany Gant to Ferd,
the city where the child will be born. Amelia is a shape-changer who
flies to the west to do reconnaissance only to be captured and
imprisoned. Pris, the emperor and blossoming wizard, worries about
the evil forces and knows the child cannot be allowed to unite the
demonic powers. His untested magic will be key to stopping the
impending doom. Dalphnia, Gant’s wife, is a woodland nymph who can
control the trees of the forest and is determined to see her husband
come through this journey alive. Can this unlikely group intervene in
time to stop the child and the carnage that is sure to follow? Will
it mean killing the child? Resolving this moral dilemma while
outwitting the demons and getting back to the safety of their homes

Rick dropped onto his bed, staring at the ceiling and wishing he was anywhere but here. He looked at his hands, hands now those of a twenty-five-year-old man. They were stained in a few places with car grease, thick from working out, and scarred across both palms from the accident. The accident. His badge of shame.
He wondered how differently life would have gone five long years ago if he’d taken Sean’s dare to kiss Grace. Would she have hated him more for doing it than not doing it? Would she have accused him of using her for a thrill instead of showing her how he truly felt? He feared both as much as he feared showing his feelings to Sean. Still, was there something—anything—he could have done that would have changed that awful night?
Grace’s clumsiness annoyed Scott and gave Sean another reason to tease her, which upset Rick. Everybody had clumsy moments. Even clumsy days. After all, he smacked himself in the face with a wrench this afternoon and had to chase it across the garage floor before he snagged it. He was the klutz, not Grace.
He sighed, wondering if what Hannah often told him was right. Sometimes angels came along and, in the strangest ways, guided God’s children in the right direction. Coming here had been a last-minute decision, the thought jumping into his head out of the middle of nowhere. But maybe this week might turn out to be a gift from Heaven. If he could get past Grace Evans’ defenses, he might be able to earn her forgiveness, even if he wasn’t able to find a way into her heart.

Poxy Dragon is a rough bar outside the worst part of the medieval
Silk Road. It takes serious courage just to walk into the place, not

Rick made some mistakes as a boy, and as a young man, his worst was hurting Grace Evans. His heart still belongs to her, even if she doesn’t know it. Unfortunately, in the last confrontation between them, she demanded he never speak to her again.
Now, Grace’s best friend (and Rick’s sister) Hannah has invited her to a ten-day summer work-vacation to babysit Hannah’s teen cousins. A palatial cabin, a patio boat on the lake, and all the comforts of the rich and famous at their fingertips? A vacation made in heaven.

Etherya’s Earth series is best read in order, so that the reader can

The alliance begins to crumble, and Sullyan finds herself caught between two monarchs: the king sheâ€™s sworn allegiance to, and the man she loves as a father. To betray either one would break her heart, but if conflict is inevitable, she must make a choiceâ€¦
Top Ten List
1) Anthing to do with animals, especially dogs and horses. My favorite horse breed is the Friesian, which is why I put one in my novels. I also own two rescue dogs and support many animal charities.
2) Singing, especially folk-style songs. I also sing in my local church choir.
4) Dragons and (I have to admit!) unicorns. I have collected figurines and statues of dragons and unicorns since I was small and have a vast collection, some of which live outdoors. But I donâ€™t like â€œtweeâ€, only ones that look like they could be real.
5) Reading, especially fantasy and sci-fi.
6) Country walks.
7)All wildlife, especially butterflies. I used to breed and release UK varieties, and belong to the Butterfly Conservation Society.
8) Did I mention chocolate?
9) Spending time with family members.
10) Playing my bodhran (Irish drum). I canâ€™t read music so decided to take up drumming instead! Itâ€™s fun and very theraputic.

Rushe was born in South Alabama, and grew up climbing trees,
searching for sprites and fairies in the nearby woods, and dreaming
of other worlds. The daughter of an English teacher and a small-town
judge, Rushe developed a love of reading early on, and haunted the

numerous campaigns and raids, Grelic is a warrior without a war. He
languishes under mugs of ale and poor choices that eventually find
him locked in the dungeons of King Rentor. His only chance at
redemption is an offer tantamount to suicide: travel north with a
misfit band of adventurers and learn the truth of what happened in
the village of Gend.
