"This story is filled with relatable, realistic characters with flaws that bring them to life on the page. All the characters had their pitfalls as well as redeeming qualities. I found myself so lost in the story, that the words became invisible on the page."
- Bestselling Paranormal Author Lilian Roberts
"A well-constructed sword-and-sorcery novel. It's a worthy read for mature audiences, and fantasy buffs will find this book an enjoyable addition to their collection."
- Bestselling Author John Dizon
"It's vibrant with wonder, has excellent fast paced dialog and strong female roles. Over all this is a fantastic first novel."
- Jennifer V. Clancy, Author
"Hellenthal has mastered the epic and her characters grow as the story unfolds with rare humanity. For a first book, the author succeeds exceptionally well in setting a serious tone with epic scope. Her fantastical elements and her characters romp around in their internally consistent other world on a magical quest that intrigues and inspires while laying bare the depths of her characters' emotions."
- Michael James Gallagher, Author
"A lyrical captivating fantasy with some beautiful imagery."
- Rob Ross, Author of Juggler's Blade
"This is not your average Damsel in distress and Knight in shining Armour, not by a long shot! I was pleasantly surprised with how well Ms Hellenthal wove a very well written tale full of danger, suspense, mystery, intrigue and eventually romance and joy. It was breathtaking and brilliant. The characters are so good I actually worried for them, fidgeting as I rode the twists and turns." - Ameliah Faith
"This story is captivating, well written, and the author has put a lot of thought into her characters that of depth, emotions, strength, and vulnerabilities." - Angela Crandall
"This book is a very original lesbian fantasy read." - Katrina

| Basaclanca |

$0.00, 365 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (1 review), #148 in > Literature & Fiction > Humor & Satire > General Humor
Shakespeare once wrote that ‘all the world’s a stage’, but if it included active volcanoes then boy, was he dumb. The inhabitants of our present day Earth are blissfully tolerant of other people’s religions, inequalities, sexisms, racisms, sizes; even active volcanoes. We are indubitably-super-duper- to one another and live in a blissful haze, thank god. Alternative universes however are devoid of such loveliness and are brimming with isms - shocking I grant you. There are just too few politically correct people and no telling what’s going to happen next; the odd swear word here, the occasional wolf whistle there... it’s mad I tell you!
Well, over there became over here for inventors of an alternative universe crossing machine. They wanted to make a live movie, saving money on film production by incorporating backdrops and characters from alternative worlds with calamitous results. They based their storyline upon seven heroes battling to save a princess from a nasty witch (the witch is real and unaware of her starring role).
The actors in this movie have serious issues of their own. If their combined intelligence were to equate to the brightness of a lightbulb in a dark room, you wouldn’t see the bulb unless you were viewing it through the Hubble telescope (the right way around and in the same room of course, any other way would be plain daft).
So why is this book called Basaclanca I hear you ask? That would be telling now wouldn’t it? Don’t read this if you have ever been offended. ‘Oh taste and see’ is my mantra, to quote someone much cleverer than I; and ‘if your eye doth offend ye, spit it out’, to quote someone less so from our story.
This book is full of contradictions, clichés and random humour. It contains artificial intelligence technology too for your enjoyment. It will nudge you politely whenever you miss superior humour, ans zap you with approximately 40000 volts if you do not laugh at all (untried on humans as yet but for a fully grown white Rhino it’s 38904 volts*). We can still use the word rectum can’t we? I do hope so. If that isn’t proof of artificial intelligence then I don’t know what is.
Basaclanca, where the expression ‘political correctness’ hasn’t squirted out of anybody yet – but they are trying.
*N.A.S.A. confirmed, probably.

by J. W. West
$0.00, 26 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (1 review), #1 in > Short Reads > 45 minutes (22-32 pages) > Literature & Fiction
Wicked Dreams – The Cabin is the first in a set of horrific short stories which have been inspired by my own dreams. In essence these are definitely nightmares to be read only during the day if you are faint of heart. If you have a high horror tolerance read by yourself at midnight with a solitary light on.
I will continue to share my fast paced shocking dreams with you. Most of the first series will be from when I was a child. That being said I have elevated some instances to intensify the experience. Some of these moments I feel like I cannot bring to the intensity I felt during the dream.
I hope you enjoy “The Cabin” as it is one of the first full nightmares I remember fully from my childhood that truly terrified me and is still harsh even today.
This short story revolves around eleven year old Savannah who goes to a cabin with her parents. The experience is awkward from the start as you feel as though Savannah and her parents don’t have a great connection in this book. This is very true to how I felt in the dream. I felt very close to the two family dogs, which I had as a child and the story of them was based on fact.
The eerie feelings Savannah has in the beginning only touch the iceberg of the terror she feels one the sun goes down. A fast paced read sure to chill you wherever you read it. Enjoy.

His feelings for her begin to twist dangerously out of control; he thinks he might love her, but how long will it take before she grows tired of him and his past? Max is unable to pull away, even as he worries he might become one of the corpses buried in her garden, even as he watches her hunger for vengeance grow quickly out of control, even as her anger might change her into something less than human.

Verne's Momma had one rule which could never be broken. He could not reveal to any outsider what went on within their house. Verne knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that to violate that rule was to bring unholy tortures down onto his head.
And so not a word passed his lips. Not during the twenty-five years he lived in the dank basement, curled up on the thin mattress.
Not during the ten long years of his prison sentence.
Until he made the mistake ...
* * *
Death Watch delves into the depths of horror which exist in our society. Despite our modern world's veneer of civilization, there are far too many who fall through the cracks. Who are abandoned to a darker world.
A portion of all proceeds from this series benefit battered women's shelters.
