Prophet (Books of the Infinite Book #1)

by R. J. Larson

“This tale captured me and held me hostage to the very last page. Breathlessly waiting for the next book.”–Donita K. Paul, author of The Dragon Keeper Chronicles and The Chiril Chronicles

Ela Roeh of Parne doesn’t understand why her beloved Creator, the Infinite, wants her to become His prophet. She’s undignified and bad-tempered, and at age seventeen she’s much too young. In addition, no prophet of Parne has ever been a girl. Worst of all, as Parne’s elders often warn, if she agrees to become the Infinite’s prophet, Ela knows she will die young.

Yet she can’t imagine living without Him. Determined to hear the Infinite’s voice, Ela accepts the sacred vinewood branch and is sent to bring the Infinite’s word to a nation torn apart by war. There she meets a young ambassador determined to bring his own justice for his oppressed people. As they form an unlikely partnership, Ela battles how to balance the leading of her heart with the leading of the Infinite.

Heart of Esor

by AJ Mallon

From as far back as sixteen year old Brom Eliad could remember, he’d tried to expel the beast Esor into the realms of myth. He’d tried to ignore her and ignore the curse his birth had rested on his soul. For he was the one pre-ordained to deal with her.

As for Mae, now fifteen, from as far back as she could remember, Brom had been an intensely important part of her life. In fact, before Brom left for his studies, Mae felt he might have liked her.

Now however, there was a coming of age that could ruin it all. It was a coming of age that would complete a prophesy or end their land of Amora. It was a coming of age that would settle a beast or release her, rampant and rapacious. It was a coming of age that would lead Brom and Mae on a potentially fatal collision course, not only with the beast Esor, but also each other.

The War of the Moonstone

by Jack Conner

Imagine the epic reach of Tolkien, the grit of George R. R. Martin and the nonstop adventure of Robert E. Howard, and you will have some idea of the thrills awaiting you in “The War of the Moonstone”, a tale of love, bloodlust and tragedy set in a land on the brink of destruction.

Black times have come to Felgrad. Once one of the jewels of the Crescent, now the dark powers have turned their gaze upon it, and Giorn Wesrain, son of the baron of Fiarth, has become inextricably drawn into the machinations of the Dark One, along with his beloved Niara, High Priestess of Illiana.

They have loved each other in secret for years, but that love will be tested as the armies of the Dark One strive against Felgrad. Worse, one of their own, Raugst, is in truth an agent of the enemy, and Raugst will soon bend the barony to his will. If Felgrad falls, so too will the rest of the Crescent, and then the Dark One will be unleashed upon the world.

Only Giorn and Niara can stop him, but how can they when the legendary Moonstone, the great artifact of the Light that has kept the fell powers at bay for thousands of years, has been taken? As Giorn sets out into the waste lands after it, to either reclaim it or find out what the Dark One wants it for, enemy hordes swarm the mighty city of Thiersgald and Niara is trapped behind its walls . . . with Raugst.

This is only the beginning of the adventure that awaits you in “The War of the Moonstone”.
