Drast and Tyran might be considered a bit black-hearted, or even immoral. Drast is cunning but reckless, hunting for admiration. Tyran is calculating but tactless, searching for affection. When the two brothers set aside their ambitions to fulfill their father's desire for immortality, they readily discover many opportunities for redemption. Now, while wielding a powerful magic that drains their life, Drast and Tyran will embark on a maddening quest, facing skin-switchers, dragons, and the God of the Dead.

What does it mean to become a dragon?
 
From Amazon bestselling author of The Symbiont Wars Series. Chogan Swan brings you The Against That Shining Darkness Trilogy 

Praise for Against That Shining Darkness:

5 Stars!
  I love a unique and interesting portrayal of dragons. This is a rich world with characters I hope to enjoy for years to come. -- Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite

Even before he was born, Prince Seth Arodan attracted the worst enemies possible--like demonic powers with human pawns throughout the world. And it's all because of a 500-year-old prophecy. You'd think a holy prophet would be a bit more considerate than to tell your enemies where you could be found. 

When Seth leaves the Seaside Mountains, the only home he's ever known--so his enemies will chase him instead of destroying everyone he loves--he finds he has allies he never imagined... big scaly ones.  

Dragonkind has been calling Seth. They have a mission only he can complete, and he's honor bound to agree, but first, it seems he must become a dragon, whatever that means...

But, not all dragons are going to appreciate his interference, and if Seth can't find the allies he needs to hold back doomsday, the world will fall to the darkness.

Caves of Ice - Caverns of Fire is the first book of Chogan Swan's epic fantasy trilogy.

Heart of the Destroyer
by Kent Corlain
$0.00, 189 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 Customer Reviews), #6 in > Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Horror
This is a disturbing tale of dark fantasy.

Ashley is not a hero living in a world of darkness.
She is the worst person you could ever meet.

This is the story of her life, and of the death of others.

She has been trained as an assassin, but killing is not just a profession for her. Not when she gets to kill pretty girls. Has she met her match in a wayward princess with venomous habits, or will unimaginable terror from beyond the stars destroy them both?

This is not a typical fantasy adventure. This book is not recommended to people who are against graphic descriptions of immoral debauchery.

This is a nasty story about nasty people in the realms of swords and sorcery.
