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
Guide to the Galaxy, then you’ll love this humorous, original epic
fantasy, packed with magic, mystery and sharp kicks to the funny
bone.

 

 

“I’m
already a HUGE fan of fantasy fiction, this book appealed to me as I
felt it would be something new and unique… I wasn’t left
disappointed!”

Dream
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
skills of J.R.R. Tolkien, J.K. Rowling and Brandon Sanderson will
surely get addicted to this original new world.

have a day in the life of our hero.

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

It
just might be the death of him.

Politicians. Humane Terrorists. Religious Devils.

 

Then it gets
confusing…


 

 

Wendell’s
learned that gnomes are just as irritating and dangerous as
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!

has them. Seriously, you don’t want to miss reading this book in

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!”

Meant For Kings
The

There’s
no doubt: Chariss is in danger. Her geasa is hampered by the effects
of a friend’s marriage. The dashing Nigel Taiman hides something
from her, yet demands she stay at his family’s estate where he and
her wizard guardian intend to keep her safe. But the sorcerer Lord
Drake and Julette The Betrayer know she’s there, and their
monstrous army marches that way.

 

 


When
prophecies stack up to threaten an arrogant deity, Chariss must
choose between the dragon that courts her and the ostracized kings of
the Southlands for help. Evil stalks her at every turn and madness
creeps over the goddess who guides her. Can an
orphan-turned-Protector resist the dark side of her heritage? Or will
she sacrifice all to keep her god-charge safe?

Arcanan Army’s camp in hopes of tipping the balance in his bride’s
favor. Dangerous times call for strange allies from all quarters. To
restore the geasa that will save the god she’s sworn to protect,

for the good of all. Does she have the will to sacrifice all that she
holds dear in the process? Dive into the action-packed conclusion of

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.”

Review for readersfavorite.com

The Hawken Eye is a delightful book that reads kind of like a Harry Potter, though the tale has nothing to do with the famous wizard. The character of Kimora, one of the threesome that are the main characters in this tale, is very much like that of Hermione in the popular books. In spite of the similarities, (more…)
