Bellica: a pagan fantasy novel (The Third Age Book 1)
by Katje van Loon
$0.00, 718 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (6 reviews), #5 in > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Myths & Legends > Greek & Roman
Conspiracy. Magic. Courage.

All Bellica Yarrow wants from life is to stay the course. Her military career fulfills her childhood dreams and affords her a freedom royalty never did. Yarrow doesn't need anything more than the steadfast friendship of her Major, Caelum, and her Chief Medical Officer Jules.

The Goddesses have other plans, however. They set in motion events that threaten the bellica with madness and despair. Constancy has been Yarrow's standby, but betrayals on every side push her further into chaos. She watches the puppet-Empress, her aunt, destroy the country, and dreads the day Zardria, her power-hungry twin sister, takes the Sceptre and rules openly.

Should Bellica Yarrow keep her military oath, or topple her sister's cruel regime? Can she?

The choice is nearly impossible. The longer she equivocates, the more she risks the lives of everyone she holds dear. Meanwhile, Zardria has her own idea of how events should unfold - and what Yarrow doesn't know could cost the bellica her life.



Bellica is the first intallment in epic fantasy series The Third Age. If you like books that are equal parts slow burn and fast-paced action, diverse casts of characters, and deeply mythic tales, then you'll love Katje van Loon's vision of humanity in the far-off future.

Enter the world of Athering's embattled, valiant women today!

TALES OF ENOCHIUS: A NOVELLA
by S.J. Oliver
$0.00, 75 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (3 reviews), #244 in > Romance > Science Fiction
I was born in a time of such difference from the world you now know, that for you to truly understand it would require you to be shown and thus see it with your own eyes.
Anything less than this would do you a disservice, however, I shall venture to do just so.

I have existed for millennia. I choose this word existed deliberately, as some might debate the word “lived” as inaccurate. I have born witness to the rise and fall of empires that have spanned the globe, seen wonders that at such times were both terrible to behold and at once miraculous to say the least. I have seen mad men gain such power in this world as god like and men of compassion and genius be ostracized and persecuted. I have seen the death of wondrous civilizations long past and the longevity of cultures that should have fallen sooner. Seen life in all its rare and fleeting beauty and observed its true horrors born by humanity. I was witness to the birth of art, the wondrous creation of music, seen men enslaved and set free. I have relished life and as is the nature of man, taken it away.

Let me tell you my tale, my millennia of wonders and adventure, of love lost, pain felt and power awakened.

Let me tell you the tales of Enochius…

There are two tales of conjured folklore told within this story about how Paddy, who was not yet a saint at the time, might have worked his ways to rid Ireland of snakes early in the 5th Century. The first tale tells how he might have accomplished this heroic feat singlehanded. The second tale explains what happens after he saves the life of a leprechaun. It was common knowledge, back then, that when you save the life of a magical wee little folk, the lifesaver is entitled to one request that the leprechaun must fulfill as a debt of honor. However, Paddy’s request presents a most unique challenge—it’s totally different from any wish that’s ever been requested.

Origins Of The Magdon: Vercovicium: Volume 1 (The Magdon Series)
by Tobey Alexander
$0.00, 81 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (1 review), #12 in > Children's eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Historical Fiction
Dare to enter the darkness and remember your sense of adventure.

Have you ever wondered what else there is beyond the stories and myths you know? You may not have heard of The Magdon but it is there, in the shadows always watching and waiting.

Hadrian's Wall, Summer 1911 Archy is given the chance to spend his summer at the excavation of a Roman Fort called Vercovicium. One fateful day Archy stumbles across a buried tomb. Braving the dark Archy sets off in exploration and discovers a long forgotten part of history. The events of that summer open a new adventure to Archy that will change him forever.

Origins Of The Magdon: Vercovicium marks the first in a series of episodic adventures following Archibald "Archy" Skevington as he struggles to find out the truth behind the hidden monster. Archy's first encounter happens when he is only sixteen but the adventure lasts for the rest of his life.

Note from the author:
The whole idea of the Magdon came about when my youngest son as a toddler asked me what a noise was in the woods as we walked home. Instead of telling him what it was I made up the idea of the Magdon and since then it has been part of our family adventures. Between this and the constant questions and my sons have grown up I have created a whole mythology and background behind the monster. It was during a conversation with one of my children's teachers that I was told how much I had captured my children's imaginations and they encouraged me to write the story down. As a result I have decided to break down the "origins" story into a series to make it accessible to younger ages but also keep the story clean and to the point setting myself a limit of 10,000-12,000 words per volume. The fact my children have totally immersed themselves into the twisted world of monsters I have created it only seems fair (on them and me) that I share it with the world. So here is truly the madness of my imagination and something I have made so real and believable for my children.

Hopefully you will enjoy the adventure.

Upon the beautiful planet of Kaliya, the Khurran (eight foot tall sloth-like folks) live peaceful lives in the trees and mountains. Many of the Khurran of Wild Mountain still worship Jesh, the goddess of their mountain, and some remember when she walked amongst the mortals. After thousands of years another god awakens, though not one that any living being would worship. He is Rokkhu, born of darkness, blight on the face of Kaliya. Leaf, a young Khurran, is beginning to learn the truth of who he truly is, for he is a bodhisattva: a being of light, reincarnated once again to counter the forces of darkness that emerge in the world. Reluctant to disrupt his peaceful and quiet life upon the mountain, he nonetheless must face his truth and look for other bodhisattvas in the world to teach him, for he has been chosen to stop the dark god, Rokkhu, and restore safety to the mortals and gods alike. Journeying through a world in which the spirits and gods interact with the mortals, Leaf and his companions must unravel a spiral of dark deeds that began thousands of years ago, and that have only begun to come to their fruition.


Hardt's Tale: A Mobious' Quest Novel
by Gwendolyn Druyor
$0.00, 316 pages, 4.7 out of 5.0 (10 reviews), #32 in > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Coming of Age

Praise for Hardt’s Tale:

”I just Couldn't. Put. It. Down!” —K.T.

”Reminiscent of Ursula Le Guin's Earthsea trilogy, her hero (and dragon-heroine) carve a place of their own in the vast frontier world. Take a chance on Hardt's Tale: you won't regret it.”  —C.T. 

”I haven't fallen so completely in love with a dragon since Falcor in the Neverending Story.” —J.R.


Can One Man Save A World?

Hardt is happy living a quiet, solitary life with his aunt. His insatiable curiosity is constantly fed by the unpredictable nature of life in his small agrarian Lander village.

But the great, fire-breathing dragons and their elven slaves are flying closer and closer to lander settlements. And rumor is they’ve developed a taste for human flesh. Hardt joins the guarde force preparing to destroy the beasts.  

One dark night on solitary patrol, he finds himself facing a dragon.  

And everything changes. 

Hardt’s Tale is the epic story of one man’s battle to keep the sentient species of his world from destroying each other. 

Pick up the book people are saying they can’t put down!


Author Interview


Do your readers have to read Hardt's Tale first? 

No. The Mobious' Quest books can be read in any order. Each is a stand alone novel with the greater story of Mobious and dragons intricately weaving its way through all three. While Hardt's Tale was the first book to be published, I actually wrote Geoffrey's Queen first. And I'm writing Callie's Crown now!  

Which book would you recommend reading first? 

If you held my feet to the fire, I'd say you should read Hardt's Tale first. The plot is the more traditional. I wrote it with the Alice in Wonderland advice of “Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”  Whereas Geoffrey's Queen is written in the fairly unusual plot structure of a mobious strip. There is no beginning and no end.

Why would you write a book with no beginning and no end? 

So the lovers don't have to die of typhus or ye o happy dagger or an iceberg and poor planning. I wanted to write of a true love that doesn't end tragically. I prefer hope.

Read either Hardt's Tale or Geoffrey's Queen for free with Kindle Unlimited.  Read with your friends! Enhance your enjoyment by each starting with a different book!

Five high school seniors were going to the 'haunted house' when their car wouldn't start. Mike Rawlins who is a sophomore and works at his dad's auto shop stopped by and got the car going for them. They convince Mike to go with them to the haunted house and he does, but not before stopping and getting holy water at the church and buying salt. Mike had been there before, he knew to be prepared.

Once in the house the girls are less than enthused. Talk about creepy. Mike makes a circle with the salt and holy water. The others think he's really nuts. Jerry and Stan are excited and Mike? Well Mike's been here before and he's less than enthused. The guys then head for the cellar. The cellar that has a huge stinking sinkhole and a metal hatch. The guys try to pull the hatch up only to have it fly up on its own.

It releases a luminescent wave that goes through the entire house and crashes into their salt circle. This thing is screeching with rage and loud enough for the teens to grab their ears in agony. They all jump into the circle. The circle that is their only protection from this thing.

Enter an emaciated mixed breed dog. The dog dives right through the apparition, jaws ripping at thin air. The dog then begins herding the apparition as though it were a sheep. Snapping and growling without fear until inexplicably the monster disappears. They all make tracks out of that house as fast as they can.

Mike takes possession of the dog. A dog he names Demon. Demon is an Australian Shepherd/Lab mix. At least that's what the vet comes up with. Demon turns out to be Mikes best friend and as we go along Mike realizes that Demon is way more than just a dog. Mike and his friends who now have a bond are on a roller-coaster of a ride.

Heartwood Falls: Heartwood Part I (The Elemental Wars Book 1)
by Freya Robertson
$0.00, 117 pages, 4.5 out of 5.0 (2 reviews), #105 in > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Metaphysical & Visionary
This is Part One of the award-winning epic fantasy Heartwood. Please note, there is a cliffhanger at the end, and you will need to purchase parts 2 and 3 to complete the story (or alternatively purchase parts 1-3 in the handy box set.)

A dying tree, a desperate quest, a love story, a last stand.

When Chonrad was a child, the Arbor turned him away. As an adult, he comes to Heartwood for the Congressus peace talks with mixed feelings, but he is prepared to put aside his resentment to keep peace in the land. And then the Darkwater Lords attack.

Now the tree is dying, its heart stolen. The real meaning of the Veriditas—the ancient power of the greening—has been lost. The tree’s roots are no longer keeping the land alive.

The four peoples of Anguis and the Militis knights of Heartwood must work together to save the Arbor. Chonrad discovers he can provide the vital link between the people and the land as the element of water begins to rise. Will he help? Or will he turn his back on the tree who rejected him?

There will be journeys to the ends of the earth, to the bottom of the ocean, and to the deepest part of the hearts of men and women. Truth, honesty, and love will triumph, but the Darkwater Lords are many and powerful, and only the strong will prevail…
