What readers said

"The story moves at an enjoyable pace and the swapping of point of view is both enjoyable and helps to keep the pace of the book interesting"
"The inventiveness of the Helm was a pleasant surprise. (no spoilers here) I was expecting the possible cliche' magical device but that was not the case."
"There are great characters at every turn –, some do stick around more than others. Without competition though, Dema the Medusa was a personal favourite  – sheer-evil one moment, hints of compassion the next"
"The story lines twist and turn and always kept me guessing."

The Lord Son's Travels - kindle ebook by Emma Mickley

Adrien Lord Son had always intended to live an inconspicuous life in the military, far away from the glamours and intrigues of the royal court.  He was only the second son of the Lord King, just fourth in line of succession, and so he had always happily believed he would be able to live out his life in pleasant obscurity.  But news came to their kingdom of great troubles in neighboring lands: towns and villages leveled by mysterious new weapons wielded by the legendary monsters of ancient times.  When the whispers began that the fearsome invaders would soon reach their borders, and his rigid father refused to take any steps to protect their home, Adrien knew he would have to act on his own.

Elenna Davidson had only intended to grab a quick cup of to-go coffee and arrive at her 8 am class on time for once.  But something inexplicable happened, and instead she found herself laying on the ground in the middle of a field, wondering why the stars and moon above their heads were different than the ones she had always known.  Adrien and Brendan, the two men that found her and took her into their protection were kind and thoughtful, and obviously on the run from something or someone dangerous.

Soon the vast scope of the dangers are discovered - all of the kingdoms of the Eastlands were under attack by the dreaded Lord of the Southlands.  While Adrien believes he is facing a battle between bearers of magical weapons, Elenna knows that her new friends are facing down forces using far more advanced technologies than possessed by the simple people of the Eastlands.  Elenna offers her understanding of the strange weapons in exchange for Adrien's help in returning her to her lost home.  They and all of the fascinating new companions they encounter during their journeys must combine all of their unique talents and knowledge to win the coming war and save their kingdom.  The only way to guarantee success is a quest no one had ever survived, to retrieve the one object promised by the legends to bring victory against their foes.

Epic of Ahiram: Age of the Seer - kindle ebook by Michael Joseph Murano

"Rise Like The Hero You Were Born To Be, Or Die The Slave You Think You Are."

"Ahiram is a mix of Batman and Harry Potter...but with more attitude." - Reviewer

Suddenly torn from his family, 12-year-old Ahiram is sold as a slave in the Kingdom of Tanniin. Six years later, in order to win his freedom and return home, Ahiram enters the elite Games of the Mines. Pursued relentlessly by his enemies and driven to the limit of his endurance, Ahiram unwittingly awakens a dormant fury within him, and its resonance is caught by a hidden malice that turns the Games into a living nightmare. Refusing to submit to a cruel tyranny, Ahiram must face a harrowing death in the bowels of the earth. Still, a glimmer of hope remains. For deep within the mines, between stone and gold, a power--unlike anything the world has seen--quietly calls his name.

Age of the Seer is Book One in the Epic of Ahiram

"I have been swept up by the wonderful characters, scope of the world, and the expanding plot. I love the struggle our hero, Ahiram, is faced with." - Reviewer

The inspiration for Ahiram came when I was fourteen years old. I went on a school field trip to Byblos, a city as ancient as time, where the sarcophagus of King Ahiram has lain quietly for thousands of years. On its sides, you could see the oldest alphabetic inscription known to mankind. After the tour, we walked on the shores of Byblos, and I began to wonder: how does one invent an alphabet? Do you sit down on the beach, fish for sand crabs, and sing "a,b,c,d,e,f,g..."? I mean, how do you actually invent an alphabet?

This is when I saw Ahiram, as a boy, running on the sandy shores of Byblos; and running after him, I entered his world, and the story became a part of me as much as I became a part of it.

And now, I would like to share the wonders of this epic with you, who like me, might prefer the flying carpets of an improbable voyage to the panegyric of placid escalators in our mega-modern airports. So here's from me to you: an epic so vast that the only screen fit for it is your imagination. - Micheal Joseph Murano

What the Barber Knew - a Kindle ebook by Bailey Herrington

A hint of the plot  David Elliott, adventurous high school junior, stumbles upon the murdered body of his barber, Benny Angelone. Days later David narrowly escapes death at the hands of an unknown assailant who believes David heard or saw something that will send the barber’s killer to the chair. He tracks young Elliott’s every move, looking for the moment to strike. But what does Elliott know? What did the barber know which signed his death warrant? In a desperate race against time David must find the answers or be killed. His daring efforts involve him in one of the most famous crimes of the 20th century and bring him - and the reader - to the cliff’s edge with a relentless killer.

What The Barber Knew, Select. The germination of the plot for What The Barber Knew sprouted from a boyhood memory in Erie, Pennsylvania. Early one summer morning, I left our house and walked two blocks to a bluff on the shore of Lake Erie. A neighbor, Mr. W., a retiree from the General Electric plant, soon joined me. As we idly watched the waves break on the narrow beach below, the body of a man rolled out of the surf. Mr. W. told me to go home. Shocked and scared, I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. Before the body was identified, it was reported the man had been shot, execution-style.

Not many days later, I walked to Louis G.’s Barbershop for my monthly haircut. The shop was closed, and a sign on the door announced the reason: Mr. Louis G. had died. We kids were certain that the body in the lake was our barber. There were rumors that Louis the Barber had been a player in the numbers racket. Apparently, Louis had cheated the bosses, and suffered the fatal consequence.

When I decided to write a murder mystery in 2011, the plot was loosely based on the fate of my barber. However, my research at the Erie Public Library revealed a startling fact: Louis G. had succumbed of a stroke at home, not of a bullet wound and a watery grave. I had held fast to a mistaken notion for more than sixty years!

The Six and the Crystals of Ialana - Kindle ebook by Katlynn Brooke

Six unwilling young adventurers from different locations on the continent of Ialana, brought together by shared dreams and circumstances, search for a crystal that was lost 500 years before. As their memories begin to unfold, they encounter many dangers that threaten their lives at every turn.

Jarah, a baker’s son, is unhappy with his lot in life and yearns for more; Adain, his friend and fellow captive; Tristan, the soldier who has many skills that help them on their quest; Kex, the young girl who is on the run from a forced marriage; Tegan, the girl who is able to speak to animals, and Djana—a girl from Rhiannon who is able to find her way in the maze of tunnels where they search for the crystal.

The Six stumble upon a mentor, the shape-shifter named Irusan. Irusan begins their education by showing them that his seemingly magical powers are only an understanding of the universal field of consciousness that is available to everyone. Irusan prepares them for the next stage of the arduous journey they must now undertake in order to not only find the crystal, but also the legendary island of Mu'A.

Their enemies are numerous: Eglog, a recruiter and vicious Captain of King Brenin’s army, is hot on their trail; Amrafalus, the reptilian ruler of Rhiannon who covets all crystals he can turn into weapons, and the many mutant species that inhabit Ialana who consider anything that moves as potential food. Not only that, they must find a traitor in their midst.

Will the Six accomplish the mission that was begun so long ago, or will they fail—again?

Hot in the Saddle - kindle ebook by Ciana Stone

Four ranchers as hot as the Arizona desert - men more than willing for a night of loving, but who all think that love is not in their cards.

Four men, four stories.

Chase Hawks and his half-brothers Clay, Cole and Caleb Russell discover that falling in love sometimes means accepting things you didn't believe were possible.

** Originally published from Ellora's Cave

Join Chase Hawks and his half-brothers Clay, Cole and Caleb Russell as they discover that falling in love sometimes means accepting things you never thought possible.

Chase Hawks had a good handle on life. Between his small spread in Arizona, his success on the rodeo circuit and a bevy of beautiful women always available to satisfy his urges, he figured he had control over his life.

Then fate intervened. He ran over a woman. Literally. Hit her with his truck.

Ana Stillwater had no control over her life. She’d skipped out on an abusive husband with three hundred dollars, a car that was on its last leg and a hawk named Fergi. She figured life couldn’t get any worse.

Then it did. Her car breaks down in Arizona and if that isn’t enough, she gets hit by a truck.

Which brings up the question: Just what happens when a rational, down-to-earth rancher hooks up with a quirky new age witch who can give him a hard one with just a look and likes to dance naked under the moon?

Molding Clay:
Clay Russell had plans, Big plans. First he was going to win the Nationals in bull-riding, then he was going to start his own spread and breed horses. But his family had other plans. They roped him into leaving Arizona and taking on the job of getting a struggling ranch in North Carolina back on its feet.

He didn’t expect it to be something beyond his ability. He also didn’t expect Rusty Blackhawk to be a woman. Or a witch.

Rusty had no choice but to take the Russell’s offer and partner up with them. She had to hang onto her ranch and this was the only way. She wasn’t expecting to like Clay Russell. She sure wasn’t expecting to want him.

Neither of them expected the passion that would explode between them, or the danger that would threaten their lives. They were both in for surprises.

Cole had no trouble attracting women. The Russell men were all blessed physically, and Cole was no exception. However, finding a woman who could match his passion for the wilderness as well as ignite passions of a different kind in his life was the problem.

Scout Windrider knew that love wasn’t for her. She’d yet to encounter a man who took her breath away, and figured it was just as well. What man would want to hook up with a woman who spent most of her life in the wild, tracking mountain lions?

Neither of them could have foreseen being paired in a no-kill hunt turned deadly would force them to confront an explosive attraction hot enough to consume them with its heat. Faced with a murderous madman intent on exacting revenge against the Windrider family, Scout and Cole take a leap of faith with each other, and discover something relegated to myth and legend prove to be true, that will touch their lives in a way that will change them forever.

Single and lovingit! That’s Caleb, the only Russell man not yet hitched, and that’s fine with him. Life’s good—if a little predictable. Until a little lady drops out of the sky and into his kayak, nearly drowning him in the process.

But getting wet is the least of his problems. Seems Caleb’s going to follow his brothers when it comes to fixing on kinda offbeat women, because Conn isn’t like any woman he’s ever known. But then he’s never met a woman who isn’t from this world. And he sure as shit hasn’t ever met one who can put as much starch in his shorts and fire in his blood as Conn can with just a look.

Caleb thought he was a master when it came to seduction and making love. What he’s about to learn is that he’s only touched the tip of the iceberg.
