DREAMS THAT PHANTOMS HIDE (Book One of THE DROMERNAUT ODYSSEY)

by Carlos Cotayo

THE DROMERNAUT ODYSSEY begins!
Discover an unforgettable collection of science-fantasy thrillers for adult readers and a topnotch novelist on the cutting-edge of world-class literary entertainment at its seductive best! Philistia is swarming with daemonic activity, and the Charioteer Dumalseb, the most ferocious outlaw in the cosmic VO-RES-MAR-GUD, is scheming to possess the metropolis (that’s disappeared from the maps) through psychosomatic manipulation. The higher-ups of the imperial Hesronedon galaxy suspiciously select the least likely candidate for the perilous mission to impede their shape shifting nemesis from controlling all light and movement: DRAINE DROMERFIELD, a young astrophysicist who’s been chronically (psychologically) “paralyzed” by a family tragedy. After a series of Hesronedonian “dreams” to train him for the “odyssey” (transmitted through an ethereal procedure that was never tested), Draine reluctantly awakens from stagnation and embarks on the (precarious) “journey” with his wife, their two children, and a Saint Bernard. But “magical” Philistia is not what the “Dromernaut” expected–it’s a combination of “paradise” and “hell”–founded in 1799 as a “utopia” by billionaire warlocks and enchantresses. Their occult legacy still haunts the now “dystopian” city in 2191. What’s hidden in Philistia that the most affluent dynasties on the planet strive to control and the most powerful supernatural beings in the universe are determined to protect? It’s a mysterious, eerie, and fascinating place that’s going to transform the lives of the Dromerfields faster than the speed of Dumalseb’s chariot. DREAMS THAT PHANTOMS HIDE, Book One of THE DROMERNAUT ODYSSEY, launches the exhilarating, futuristic, mythical adventures of a heroic family rising above the craters of hardship in the face of the most nefarious antagonism from natural and supernatural entities. An epic voyage of constant discovery and cinematic suspense, the surreal world of the Dromernauts exists in a unique dimension between (terrestrial) darkness and (extraterrestrial) illumination, compassion and malice. Exotic, relentlessly gripping, it’s the genesis of an emotionally engrossing, intense safari into the jungles of outrageous myths–they’re back in action in the cosmos of the VO-RES-MAR-GUD–and inexplicable legends from galactic Hesronedon that surpasses escapist entertainment with its mystical Dromernaut magic. Unpredictable and unforgettable, DREAMS THAT PHANTOMS HIDE kicks off a gripping science-fantasy saga myriad landmarks beyond the classic conventions of the genre.

The King of Dragons

by Jason Gallant

The King of Dragons

Drake Manson, a U.S. Marine, is suddenly confronted with an unstoppable force while on guard duty at a research facility. Weapons and technology don’t work against the enemy, and he soon realizes that this enemy is different than any other that he has ever faced.
The men are all dead. All except Drake. The base is in ruins and realizing that he’s the last survivor, he flees into the night, hoping to find help at the closest Army Base. Death and destruction are the common theme no matter where he goes, and in his journey to seek help, he finds others also struggling to survive in the changing world. Some of the survivors are of this world, some are not.
The world is different, but so is Drake, and his companion John, a survivor with a dog, Max, as his companion. Drake discovers the ability to absorb the magical attacks of the ghost-like creatures of the Dark Army (the Zifril), and John gains the ability to communicate with the environment, animals, and shape change into a massive wolf called a Warf. Among them travel fellow Humans, Sminks, and a Dragon, who prefers to keep Human form, for it allows him to remain hidden from the Forces of Darkness. Drake isn’t sure whether he can trust his newfound companions, but he has little choice. It’s either work together, or die facing the insurmountable odds.
Drake discovers a weakness in facing the demons of the Dark Armyâ??The Yonix. It holds the key to destruction of the enemy and the party devises a plan to blow it up.
At the same time, another army makes its way through the portal. An army seeking to avenge the destruction of its own world. An army of magic and honor.
Both groups engage in battle to stop the Dark Forces, but Drake soon finds out that explosives aren’t enough, and he has to rely on an unfamiliar force to banish evil and destroy the Yonix.
Magic.
