Someone is kidnapping the street kids in Twynne Rivers

 

DeFrantis is a young human girl living on the streets, trying to eke out a living in the sprawling city, and she has problems. First, after a botched attempt to steal a chicken, she’s on the run. Second, for some reason, someone other than the City Guard is trying to hunt her down. Finally, the poor kids she was trying to feed got sold off to slavers.

 

She has to save them, but first, she has to find them! Along the way, she gets help from strangers: Antonerri, a soldier turned heretic – Thissraelle, an elven mage girl; Granthurg, the studious giant; and Karendle, a half-dwarf wizard wannabe.

 

…But who is the Dragon’s Flame?

 

“…Each of these characters emerges from wildly differing circumstances, and have unique perspectives and goals, which don’t always neatly align with those of their companions, and in some cases can leave them wondering if they’re even fighting on the right side.  It’s that searching and self-doubt — all while being swept up by larger events — that makes these players in this little drama so fascinating.”

 

-Doug Bedwell, Author of “A Counterfeit Princess” and “Robot Captain”

 

This story is based on the setting and system of the table-top role-playing game, “A Tale of Heroes” By Mark Hansen, Brendon Hansen, and Jacob Hansen. It’s a family-friendly, story-driven system designed to help families enjoy time together.

The author uses an old concept and used many other tales ideas to compose this book. The chapters leave you hanging and you always want to keep reading to see what will happen next.

The story is of a people that possess the knowledge of the whereabouts of the biggest bird’s nest in the land. Thus they are the only ones that can collect eggs from them. (more…)

Ice Land a review for Ijustfinished.com

Author: Betsy Tobin

The year is AD 1000 and the myth and rich history of Iceland is loosely related by Betsy Tobin in her work Ice Land. The beauty of the countryside and its people are represented in a magnificent way in this book.

The book starts when the goddess Freya realizes that Iceland is at the brink of imminent disaster and she must find a necklace that will change the course of history. (more…)
