Lost Treasure
The
Paladin Princess Book 3 
 
Decaying
corpses of powerful sirens float in the sea, forming a grisly trail
toward the horror that killed them.

 

Mermaids
whisper about a new threat in the ocean, a menace that imperils all
the denizens of the waters, from Swerighe, to Alkebulan, to all the
undiscovered seas.

 

Charlotte
and her troupe, searching for clues, hear whispers of a secret
treasure that might be connected to the siren deaths. An aged merman
who has traveled farther than any other, reveals to them the tale of
a strange, strange land:

 

There
is a faraway land, full of steep mountains, and dangerous creatures.
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
only be accessed by defeating the beast that guards it. Inside,
concealed by a hideous shroud and an ancient poison, lies the lost
treasure of El Dorado.”

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

I
live in northeast Ohio where I write sci-fi, fantasy, and suspense
novels, along with a few short stories. Mostly I write stories I
think I’d like to read with characters that are interesting enough
that readers want to find out what happens to them. I also spend time
teaching and training at the karate dojo my wife and I founded,
building a Japanese garden in the back yard, and taking walks in the
woods with our dog. I have six novels in print, the most recent being
“Bula Bridge,” a collection of short stories, and a
co-authored children’s book. I continue to work on my next book and
seem to always have several stories in various stages of completion.

The
Complete Edition

Seventeen-year-old
Arthur Godwin-Dragos finds himself much unlike his childhood heroes
who fought for the grace and honor of Camelot. Banished to a bleak

fantasy of his mother’s old tales. Longing for his own destiny to
assuage his loneliness and despair, Arthur withers in exile in wait
for something more.

 

 

In
the stillness, however, the hands of fate begin to turn. Across the
universe, far out of reach of time or space, the planet Avalon grows
dim. The ancient sorceress Merlin awakes from a fevered dream–as
prophecy calls out through the darkness. Sealed and forgotten,
Morgana la Fey stirs in the dark, biding her time to strike against
Merlin and Avalon. Once again must the legend of King Arthur awaken,
and with the power of the mighty Excalibur, beat back the
insufferable darkness once and for all.

Rick made some mistakes as a boy, and as a young man, his worst was hurting Grace Evans

Friday, September 6th, 2019
Grace has given up on romance, on almost everything, since Rick Fleming betrayed her faith in him five years ago. Given her constant struggle with bad luck (her friend Murphy), being insanely accident prone, and having been the target of endless ridicule growing up, she has no reason to trust anyone.
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.
At least until they arrive and Grace finds Rick there. And neither can leave. Rick’s car is in pieces in the garage, and Grace forgot her driver’s license at home.
How will Grace survive it? Can she find a way to forgive? Can Rick learn to take
responsibility for his past mistakes? And even if they succeed, what will they do when Rick’s most recent wantabe girlfriend shows up on their doorstep, determined to make Rick hers?
 

 

 

Susan was born and raised a Southern California girl but is grateful to have lived on the Oregon coast and in the Rocky Mountains of northern Utah. She’s now enjoying living with her husband in the incomparable beauty of the Redwood forest, nestled against the rugged coast of Northern California.
Susan raised a tribe of children, making ends meet as a registered nurse and lactation consultant, and now her tribe members have tribes of their own and she doesn’t get to see enough of them. She loves to travel and is thrilled with a good movie or a great book, but writing is her passion. She writes almost anything, especially epic fantasy and romance.

Susan would love to hear your comments. Please review her book at your favorite retailer or at Goodreads. Take a peek at her website, susantietjen.blogspot.com, and/ or drop her a note at:
stietjen.author@gmail.com.

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.

The
Splintered Crown
A
Tankards and Heroes Novel
by
Larry N. Martin
Genre:
Epic Fantasy, Adventure Quest 
 
A
medieval fantasy with a party of adventurers all ready to make a name
for themselves and earn some gold.

 

 

Tankards
and Heroes is set in the city of Kortufan, where spies, assassins,
mercenaries, arms dealers, rebels, smugglers, and informants do dirty
deals dirt cheap.

 

 

The
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
only from its reputation but because of the rough clientele,
questionable food, awful beer, and abysmal hygiene. Lots of taverns
in Kortufan are home to ruffians and illegal dealings, but the Poxy
Dragon is the proving ground for heroes – with a cemetery out back
for the ones who don’t make the cut.

 

 

Lady
Leota, the resident demigoddess at the Poxy Dragon, sends would-be
heroes to different realms on quests. Once committed, there is no
turning back, and if they want their reward, every party member must
return through the portal – dead or alive.

Grace Without Grace, Stumbling into Romance

Monday, August 26th, 2019

 

Susan was born and raised a Southern California girl but is grateful to have lived on the Oregon coast and in the Rocky Mountains of northern Utah. She’s now enjoying living with her husband in the incomparable beauty of the Redwood forest, nestled against the rugged coast of Northern California.
Susan raised a tribe of children, making ends meet as a registered nurse and lactation consultant, and now her tribe members have tribes of their own and she doesn’t get to see enough of them. She loves to travel and is thrilled with a good movie or a great book, but writing is her passion. She writes almost anything, especially epic fantasy and romance.


Susan would love to hear your comments. Please review her book at your favorite retailer or at Goodreads. Take a peek at her website, susantietjen.blogspot.com, and/ or drop her a note at:
stietjen.author@gmail.com.

Grace has given up on romance, on almost everything, since Rick Fleming betrayed her faith in him five years ago. Given her constant struggle with bad luck (her friend Murphy), being insanely accident prone, and having been the target of endless ridicule growing up, she has no reason to trust anyone.
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.
At least until they arrive and Grace finds Rick there. And neither can leave. Rick’s car is in pieces in the garage, and Grace forgot her driver’s license at home.
How will Grace survive it? Can she find a way to forgive? Can Rick learn to take
responsibility for his past mistakes? And even if they succeed, what will they do when Rick’s most recent wantabe girlfriend shows up on their doorstep, determined to make Rick hers?

Age of Legend

Friday, August 9th, 2019

Jeffrey Bardwell is the author of The Scion’s Delight, a prequel to his Mage Conspiracy series

Friday, August 2nd, 2019

Jeffrey, welcome to my blog. How long have you been writing?

I have been publishing fantasy novels since 2017. The actual writing began when I was six, a few decades earlier.

Tell us where you were born and where do you live now.

I was raised in a rural town in northern Virginia, bounced arund the country a bit from Texas to Missouri, and then landed back in a different small town in central Virginia. Life is funny like that.

How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it?

If it sticks in my mind after the notion / dream / inspiration strikes, and I want to find out more, it’s a keeper.

Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

My beta readers have helped spur a marked improvement in my writing. My first book was a hot mess.

What is the name of your book?

My new book is The Scion’s Delight, the prequel to my Mage Conspiracy series. It was inspired by a dream about a haughty princess trying to repair her broken death maze to torture rats. When I realized she was the younger incarnation of the evil empress in my main series, I knew I had a good story brewing.

 

 

Tell us more about it. Perhaps a back cover blurb.

A cunning trap. A whiff of magic. A burst of steam.

Princess Cordelia has steel plate ambition, a mind like twisting brass gears, and the political might of tin foil. The girl aims to ratchet the Iron Empire into a glorious new day of gears and steam. The entire palace is arrayed against her. The chambermaids disdain her. The emperor ignores her. The mages, championed by Lord Oriolanus, lead a brisk campaign of lies and coercion. Those evil magic users threaten to tighten their grip upon the land even though machines are clearly superior. By the gods’ oil-stained hands, why can’t anyone else see her vision of the ideal future?

Just when Cordelia’s future threatens to slip back into medieval quagmire, a lone stranger with ice blue eyes and flowing blond hair arrives from the savage north. The handsome barbarian is destined to make both the hearts of the empire and the princess tremble. Does this spell doom or salvation for the girl’s fragile dream?

Explore The Scion’s Delight, the fantasy romance prequel novella of The Mage Conspiracy series. Discover a world of adventure and intrigue where lies cut deeper than any sword.

Do you have a favorite character, why?

In this new book, I think Cordelia’s retiring servant Fortinbras is my favorite. His name is an homage to a character from one of my favorite fantasy authors growing up (email the correct guess who to jhbardwell@gmail.com for a free ebook!), and his deadpan pissing contest with the ruler of an empire was a joy to write.

 

Here is the other books in the The Mage Conspiracy

Book one

 

 

Book two

 

Book three                                                               

 

What kind of impact do you expect your works to have in the reader’s lives?

I write to edify and enlighten, but most of all to entertain. I think Erin Kahn said it much, much better than I can: A book by Jeffrey Bardwell is always a good time: exciting, dangerous, gritty, and multi-layered . . . fast-paced, entertaining, and psychologically intense.

Do you have any advice for authors trying to break into the industry?

Keep writing. Don’t be afraid to push yourself out there. Your first book will probably suck. Write another. I went back and rewrote the first book in my Artifice Mage series three times before I was happy with it (and the book truly deserved the title “epic” fantasy.)

Where can we find your book?

The
End of Hatred
Etherya’s
Earth Book 1
by
Rebecca Hefner
Genre:
Paranormal Romance 
 
These
are dangerous times on Etherya’s Earth…

 

Slayer Princess
Miranda, heir to the throne, has hated the Vampyres for a thousand
years. Since the Awakening, she’s fought to protect her people,
choosing to be a warrior more than a royal. When a female Vampyre
washes up on the shore of her compound’s riverbank, she seizes the
moment to take the offensive.
Sathan, King of the Vampyres,
distraught at his sister’s disappearance and captivity, agrees to
travel with Miranda to resect the Blade of Pestilence, also hoping to
change his people’s state of endless war. Although the woman hates
him due to the constant raids on her compound for the Slayers’
life-giving blood, he can’t help but admire the stubborn and strong
princess.
As their journey progresses, both begin to
understand that they are aligned in their hatred of Crimeous, leader
of the Deamons, as well as their hope for peace between the Slayers
and Vampyres. Determined to fight their growing attraction, they
forge a tentative truce. But old wounds run deep and trust is scarce.
Their faith in each other must remain strong or all will be lost…

 

**The
Etherya’s Earth series is best read in order, so that the reader can
enjoy the evolution of the characters. After all, the author loves a
good twist and wants the reader to uncover them organically. However,
readers of romance rest assured that each book has its own featured
hero/heroine and HEA.

Etherya’s
Earth Book 2
 
Lila,
a high-born aristocrat of the Vampyre kingdom, was betrothed to
Sathan, King of the Vampyres, for a thousand years. The betrothal,

yearned for his brother. When Sathan falls for another, Lila ends the
betrothal, terrified at what her life will become now that she won’t
be queen.

 

Latimus has loved Lila since they played together on
the grassy riverbank as children. Knowing that his brother was the
better man, he never begrudged his betrothal to the woman he secretly
loved. Now that Sathan has married another, Latimus becomes aware of

man, he believes that a war-torn army commander such as he could
never offer her the life she deserves.
As the war against the
Deamons rages, Latimus fights for his people, protecting them against
the evil Dark Lord Crimeous. When Lila suffers a brutal attack,
Latimus is shaken to his core. Determined to avenge her, he

princess of the illustrious Vampyre kingdom, has always marched to
the beat of her own drum. Motivated by a calling to heal others,

attraction to him.

 

Darkrip has been enthralled by Arderin
since the night he knocked her unconscious and sent her down the
river, prompting the end of the War of the Species. Never has he met

When Crimeous threatens both their lives,

The
Reluctant Savior
Etherya’s
Earth Book 4
 
Evie,
daughter of virtuous Princess Rina and malicious Deamon King
Crimeous, is a woman torn in half. The first centuries of her life
taught her fervent lessons about pain and suffering. For ages, she
suppressed her mother’s noble blood, crafting a reality where she
was drifting alone, needing no one. Until an ancient prophecy calls
to her, possibly creating a purpose for her squalid
existence.

 

Kenden has commanded the Slayer army for a thousand
years. Strong, cunning and loyal, he longs for the day when Crimeous
has been defeated and he can settle down to build a family. Focused
on conquering the Dark Lord, he is stunned when Evie makes a brazen
demand that must be fulfilled before she chooses to fight with
them.
Although incensed by Evie’s ultimatum, Kenden has
never desired a woman more than the flame-haired vixen. Though she
stirs his ire, he also has a deep well of compassion for the beauty
who suffered so much trauma centuries ago. Together they train and by
night their connection grows, building toward the moment when they
will battle her father. But, in the end, Evie has a choice and
struggles to espouse righteousness over malevolence. For when one’s
worst fears are exposed, the evil is so much easier to embrace…

Confession
time, I’m a fantasy addict! For as long as I can remember, I’ve
loved the concept of magical worlds.

I
was the kid with dragons doodled around the edge of her school work,
the one with her head constantly buried in a book. As a teen, I
shunned partying to play Magic the Gathering and DM Dungeons and
Dragons games.

Through
the years, I’ve always made up stories and took characters on
amazing adventures, in the privacy of my own mind. Now I want to
share them with other people.

I
live with my husband and cat in Nottinghamshire in England. When I’m
not writing (or planning something I’m writing) I’m usually
working, reading, playing bass for my church’s worship team,
playing computer games (World of Warcraft, Dragon Age, Pokemon,
Minecraft) or drinking tea.

Mmm,
time to put the kettle on…

An interview with DJ Cooper

 

 

1- Tell us about yourself?

I’m DJ Cooper and I’m very tired! I live in South East England, I’m married and I have two teenagers. I have successfully run my own business from home for the last eighteen years. For the last few years, I’ve juggled that business, family life, and writing.

2- What changes did 2019 bring to your writing?

I got to call myself an award-winning author for Missing Remnants thanks to Indie Authors Monthly magazine. I never expected that to happen, so thank you IAM. This year is the first time in recent years I’ve written something set on contemporary Earth. The town of Bulwark is not real but the setting was small-town America rather than in space or on an alien planet where I usually set a story.

3- Why did you do an anthology? Was it harder or easier than writing a full out novel? What was the hardest part?

Why? Exposure. Pure and simple. The more places you can showcase your work, the more chances you have of enticing one more reader into your world. The story for the anthology was shorter than a novel, so that part was easier. The anthology was challenging because it had a deadline, I don’t usually write to a deadline. I was also writing characters I did not create so I was mindful of building on them in a way that was credible. Another challenge was writing about something in America. I’m English. We wear trousers over here, pants are underwear. Everything had to be written with American terminology in mind.

4- How did you come up with your story?

There were snippets in the original story that sparked something in my imagination. The original contained aspects of Hansel and Gretel. I watched a TV programme called Mr Benn when I was a child. A man walks into a costume shop, tries on a costume, walks through a door and has an adventure. Of course, when I re-watched Mr Benn recently, I found I’d not remembered any of it correctly and I’d written something completely different but that’s not a bad thing.

5- what is the hardest part of being an indie?

Promotion and marketing. The trouble with being an indie is that you have to coordinate everything. Even if you’re passing things like editing and cover design over to a third party, an indie author is the publisher. We are responsible for everything. I wonder how many of us wish we could just write the book and have someone else do the rest for us. I know I do. Marketing is something that can be costly, hit and miss with results and just a completely alien thing for a lot of us to undertake. We have to promote ourselves. I’m sure there are many authors uncomfortable with the concept of waving their arms in the air and screaming I’m over here, look at me.

6- Do you stay with one genre, or jump around?

I can’t even live in this reality, let alone write in one genre! I am happier when I’m not constrained to only one thing. I always have been. Writing flows easier and quicker for me when I am not tied to a single genre. I’ll write science fiction, but it’ll have aspects of horror and humour. I’ll write horror but it’ll also have humour because people crack jokes in real life and the same person can also experience something horrific. I write a mixture of things, but I find that’s more realistic despite some of my more unrealistic settings. Humans are humans whether they’re on this planet or you’ve imagined them in space.

7- Share the process of this collaboration? What inspired you from the original story and how did you marry it to your own work?

The original story has a theme of weird things happening when a pool of green water is present. There were also modern-day characters who appeared to be from different eras. I kept those themes running through my story whilst also creating something that could be read as a standalone work.

8- Would you do another anthology?

Yes, I think collaborating on an anthology is a great way to showcase what an author can do. Every author has a different set of readers they can reach. A collaboration means an author has a greater chance of reaching a wider audience.

9- What trends do you see in indie books?

There’s a lot of them! Both trends and indie books. It’s very difficult to be seen. I’ve seen authors try many things. Free is a massive trend at the moment. I’m hearing more and more authors refusing to give their books away for free because they’ve spent money getting them to the market in the first place. Competition is fierce and always will be. I don’t think the trend of hard work will ever change.

10- What makes your books stand out from the sea of indie authors out there?

I’m not unique, but I have a relatable author’s voice. I have a flair for humour and an ability to write a scene in a way that doesn’t drag. I zone out of books I read that interrupt the flow of action with passages of the description which don’t seem to move the story on. So, I like to avoid writing the things that bore me as a reader. We all have different preferences and that’s why there is potential for every decent author to find the readers who appreciate their work.

 
 

The alliance begins to crumble, and Sullyan finds herself caught between two monarchs: the king she’s sworn allegiance to, and the man she loves as a father

Monday, April 1st, 2019
Nine months have passed since Brynne Sullyan helped forge an alliance between the realms of Albia and Andaryon. A fragile peace reigns as both sides recover from the events of the previous year. Then mysterious raiders strike Andaryon villages. 
 

 

Attempts are made on the life of Albia’s High King. As Sullyan scrambles to find those responsible, unseen enemies threaten to pull apart everything she has worked for, including her marriage.

The alliance begins to crumble, and Sullyan finds herself caught between two monarchs: the king she’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 choice…
 
Cas lives in the lovely county of Hampshire, southern UK, where she was born. On leaving school she trained for two years before qualifying as horse-riding instructor. During this time she also learned to carriage-drive. She spent thirteen years in the British Civil Service before moving to Rome, Italy, where she and her husband, Dave, lived for three years. They enjoy returning whenever they can. Cas supports many animal charities and owns two rescue dogs. She has a large collection of cacti and loves gardening. She is also a folk singer/songwriter and is currently writing and recording nine folk-style songs to accompany each of her fantasy books. You can listen to and download all the songs from her website: www.caspeace.com

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.

3) Chocolate!!

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 don’t like “twee”, 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 can’t read music so decided to take up drumming instead! It’s fun and very theraputic.

Prelude
to a Hero
Chronicles
of a Hero Book 1
by
Jaime Buckley
Genre:
YA Fantasy
 
Nerd.
Introvert. He was the hero they never knew they wanted.

 

 


All
Wendell hoped for was a decent job, a hot new car and a girlfriend to
match.

 

 

 

What
he got was the mantle of a legendary hero, the heart of a girl who
had no idea who he really was…and a diamond bigger than his
fist.

 

 

What
could possibly go wrong?

 

 

Prelude
to a Hero is book one in the Chronicles of a Hero series, by Jaime
Buckley. If you enjoyed Tiffany Aching, Harry Potter or Hitchhikers

girls. Fried snails. A 30” bodyguard with pink ponytails.
 

 

Being
a hero comes with learning curves.


 

 

The
curve of a hip. The curve of a sword. The curve of a sucker punch as
it connects with your face.

 

 

It
wouldn’t be so bad if Wendell had professionals to help
him.

 

 

Instead,
he’s stuck with a feisty gnome, a senile old wizard and a green
skinned, cigar-smoking babysitter to guide him.

 

 

Is
it too late to quit?

 

 

Fans
of epic fantasy will cheer Wendell on as the Chronicles of a Hero
series continues in book two. Those who enjoy the world building

Oh
wait—we forgot to add the army of cannibals now nipping at his
heels.

 

 

 

It
just might be the death of him.

Honest
Politicians. Humane Terrorists. Religious Devils.

 

Then it gets
confusing…


 

 

Wendell’s

humans…they just come in smaller packaging.


 

 

Citizens
are rebelling, the government’s collapsing, the Church is selling
off the poor and Dax’s head on the chopping block.


 

 

All
Chuck needs to get everyone home is a city wide diversion, a flying
S.L.A.G., four lawyers, a hand grenade…and a tiny bit of
string.


 

 

It
feels good when a plan comes together!

A
Muddle of Magic

 

Fledgling
Magic #2

 

by
Alexandra Rushe

 

Genre: Epic Fantasy

 

Pub
Date: 10/2/18
 

 

What’s
a nice Southern girl doing in a place like this?
Whisked
from humdrum Alabama to the fantastical land of Tandara by a mage who
won’t take no for an answer, Raine Stewart finds herself tangled in
a muddle of magic. A Dark Wizard is out for her blood, a demonic
golem has orders to dispatch her . . . and she stinks at magic. Being
a wizard, even a baby wizard, is harder than Raine thought.
Raine
and her companions find sanctuary amongst the famed warriors of the
snow-capped nation of Finlara, and Raine is reunited with her dear
friend, the frost giant Tiny Bartog. In short order, she unearths a
magic mirror, a dread curse, and a tragic, ill-fated love affair.
Safety,
however, is an illusion. The dreaded Magog’s Eye is still missing,
and war looms. It seems an entire world hangs in the balance, waiting
to see whether Raine will be able to harness her magic. But with a
little help from her friends, she’ll survive . . . she hopes.
 
 
A
Meddle of Wizards
Fledgling
Magic #1
 
Welcome
to Tandara, where gods are fickle, nightmares are real, and trolls
make excellent bakers . . .
Raine
Stewart is convinced she’ll die young and alone in Alabama, the
victim of a chronic, mysterious illness. Until a man in a shabby
cloak steps out of her mirror and demands her help to defeat a
bloodthirsty wizard.
Raine
shrugs it off as a hallucination—just one more insult from her
failing body—and orders her intruder to take a hike. But the
handsome figment of her imagination won’t take no for an answer,
and kidnaps her anyway, launching her into a world of utmost
danger—and urgent purpose.

Ruled
by unpredictable gods and unstable nations, Tandara is a land of
shapeshifters and weather-workers, queens and legends. Ravenous
monsters and greedy bounty hunters patrol unforgiving mountains.
Riverboats pulled by sea-cattle trade down broad waterways. And
creatures of nightmare stalk Raine herself, vicious in the pursuit of
her blood.

But
Raine isn’t helpless or alone. She’s part of a band as
resourceful as it is odd: a mage-shy warrior, a tattered wizard, a
tenderhearted giant, and a prickly troll sorceress. Her new friends
swear she has powers of her own.   If she can stay under
their protection, she might just live long enough to find out . . .

 
 
Alexandra
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
school and local libraries, devouring fairy tales, myths, and tales
of adventure. In the seventh grade, she stumbled across a worn copy
of The Hobbit,
and was forever changed. She loves fantasy and paranormal, but only
between the pages of a book—the flying monkeys in The
Wizard of Oz
give her
the creeps, and she eschews horror movies. A psychic friend once
proclaimed the linen closet in Rushe’s bedroom a portal to another
dimension, and she hasn’t slept well since. Rushe is a world-class
chicken.

The
Dragon Hunters
Histories
of Malweir Book 2
by
Christian Warren Freed
Genre:
Epic Fantasy
 
 
The
Mage Wars are a fading memory. The kingdoms of Malweir focus on
rebuilding what was lost and moving beyond the vast amounts of death
and devastation. For some it is easy, others far worse. Some men are
made in battle. Grelic of Thrae is one. A seasoned veteran of
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.
Grelic,
suddenly tired of his life, reluctantly agrees and meets the only
survivor of the horrible massacre: Fitch Iane. Broken, mentally and
physically, Fitch babbles about demons stalking through the mists and
a terrible monster prowling the skies, breathing fire and death.
What
begins as a simple reconnaissance mission quickly turns into a quest
to stop Sidian, the Silver Mage from accomplishing his goals in the
Deadlands. The last of the dark mages seeks to recover the four
shards of the crystal of Tol Shere and open the gateway to release
the dark gods from their eternal prison.
Grelic
and his team are sorely outnumbered and ill prepared to deal with the
combined threats of a dark mage and one of the great dragons from the
west. Not even the might of the Aeldruin, high elf mercenaries, and
Dakeb, the last of the mages, promises to be enough to stop evil and
restore peace to Thrae.
