A Thread in the Tangle (Legends of Fyrsta)

by Sabrina Flynn

In a shattered realm where gods breathe and battle, sixteen-year-old Isiilde must find her feet among people who both despise and crave her kind. She trembles on a precipice, caught between the lust of men, the greed of kings, and an eternal struggle for dominance.  As three powerful kingdoms vie to own her, the fire in her blood awakens, sparking a cataclysm of events that spiral into disaster.  A barbarian, a madman, and a timid nymph are all who stand between light and oblivion.



Shattered World 1 : The Eurasian War

by Bobby Hardenbrook

Written in the form of a detailed timeline, Shattered World describes an alternate history timeline in which the Soviet Union invades Poland in 1937, sparking a radically different second world war.

In the early 1930’s relations between Hitler’s Third Reich and Stalin’s Soviet Union cool dramatically, bringing a level of tension to Europe not seen since the days before the Great War. By early 1936 Stalin is convinced that Hitler intends to invade Poland and decides to launch a preemptive invasion of his own. The Red Army, already large and formidable, begins to make its preparations.

Tensions between the East and West now explode into open conflict as Stalin orders the Red Army to roll west. It is the dawn of a terrible new chapter in human history, and the birth of a global struggle that will boil and rage for years, maybe decades, to come.



Switch! The Lost Kingdoms of Karibu

by Karen Prince

Currently #1 on Goodreads “Best Fantasy/Fiction for Teens” and “Most Original” lists.

Switch! A fantasy adventure about magic, friendship and bravery, but also about bad judgement, rascally witches and thoroughly irresponsible adults.

Trouble is brewing in the secret African rift valley of Karibu and Gogo Maya, the witch, and her leopard are about to make matters worse. Of all the dubious magic tricks they know, they choose a risky â??switch’ they’ve been working on, to escape from somebody lurking in the forest. Unfortunately they overshoot, switching right out of Karibu and drawing an ordinary Zimbabwean boy into the mess they leave behind them. The whole disaster that followed might have been averted if another boy had not gone and sucked up what was left of the witch’s power, leaving her too weak to switch back again. CPR, the daft boy called it. He should know better than to risk kissing a witch

If you had to choose between Joe’s two best friends or his cousin, Ethan, to lead an adventure into the bush to rescue him, Ethan would be the last one you’d pick because, well â?¦ he’s useless that way. Yet the witch’s leopard inexplicably starts issuing plans right into his head. Apparently he’s Joe’s best hope because he has absorbed some of the witch’s questionable magic powers. Powers which might come in handy if he ever learns how to wield them, and if he can endure the painful backlash he suffers every time he tries.

In a world that quite literally defies belief, where magic seeps into the drinking water for anyone to use or abuse, and the terrain is impossible to navigate without help from extremely risky sources, this is the tale of Ethan’s struggle to reach his cousin, Joe, before he falls into the wrong hands and gets himself killed.

Early Reviews for Switch!:

What a fantastic story! This may be classified as YA, but there is no reason why adults can’t enjoy it too. All the adventure of Tom Sawyer, and all the “life’s Lessons learned” as well. Kitty Muse Book Reviews.

Of all the current books for teens, this is my favorite. The characters were all charming, well thought out and full of quirks and fun. Sharon Gosling.

About The Author:

Karen Prince was raised on a wildlife farm in Zimbabwe; a perfect childhood for someone who always wanted to become an adventure writer. Between searching for leopards and other dangerous creatures on horseback and cooling off in the nearby dam – which was occupied by at least one crocodile – it was a wonder she survived.

This chaotic life was balanced during the school term by the harsh discipline and unreasonable constraints of attendance at an all girls boarding school, an overnight train ride away. That was where Karen became an avid writer. Mostly of heartfelt pleas to anyone who would listen, to rescue her soon.

Excerpt from Shifter Witch (Book One)

“Fine, we can spar. We’ll see just how talented you are.”

I threw a punch and smacked him squarely in the face and then laughed loudly. His nose looked red for a few seconds while he stared at me with disgust.

“I’ll give you one shot. That was it.” He said moving into fighting position.

He thrust a strong left hook at my stomach, and I twisted away just in time. I put my fists up in a defensive position in front of my face and balanced myself like he had shown me. B-Zar had about thirty pounds on me, and that was pure muscle. He could take me down with one good hit.

I narrowed my eyes at him and circled around him stepping lightly and evenly to keep my body in a balanced defensive position.

The sound of an engine buzzed outside, and his eyes darted to the left. I took the opening and threw a swift jabbing punch into his jaw. He backed up just in time and corrected himself, smiling at me and bouncing in place with this fists in front of his face.

He threw another jab at me, but I could tell it was weak. He didn’t intend to hit me. As I bent out of his reach I swipe kicked under his knees and sent him reeling down to the ground. As he fell, his foot connected with my ankle, sending me right down on top of him.

I felt on his chest. My face hung inches over his, and I felt his body respond instantly to my contact. I tried to get up but B-Zar swung over on top of me and pinned my arms down to the barn floor. In this position I had almost no defense. I tried to knee him in the gonads, but he pinned my legs down with his knees.

I struggled against his arms but he was so much stronger than me, I could barely budge. The sense of helplessness went from infuriating to tantalizing. Overwhelming desire trickled through my adrenaline soaked blood, and my eyelids fluttered. My body melted into the floor. His mouth leaned into mine and pressed hard against my lips. I struggled a little, just so he didn’t think I was giving in so easily. But not for long.

The feeling of him holding me down, pressing my body into the hay littered floor, made moisture seep between my legs. All my defenses evaporated, and I let his tongue into my mouth.

Edward Mordake: in Love, at War

by Paul White

A fictional account of the life and death of Edward Mordake.

Edward Mordake was born with two faces. He has managed unconvincingly to stumble through his life as a hermit who lives with his elderly mother. Edward longs to fall in love. He begins to follow a beautiful girl he has seen walking outside his window. Eventually he plucks up enough courage to ask the girl out on a date. She accepts. When the girl reacts to Edward’s second face Edward runs. He runs at night time into the wilderness. He befriends a few animals and runs into a dirty drifter who plies Edward with homemade moonshine. Edward’s troubles soon deepen. His luck runs dry. The great love he has within him also begins to run deep and dry. Edward gets swallowed up and has to fight for his life, the life that he has thus far hated.

(Edward Mordake was reportedly the 19th century heir to an English peerage. He supposedly had an extra face on the back of his head, which could neither eat nor speak, although it could laugh and cry. Edward begged doctors to have his “demon head” removed, because, supposedly, it whispered Satanist language to him at night, but no doctor would attempt it. He committed suicide at the age of 23.

It is difficult to establish the facts behind Edward Mordake’s condition due to the lack of reliable medical records. Not even his date of birth and death are recorded and there are conflicting accounts regarding his suicide, as well as placement and position of his extra face. Much of what is known is based on oral retelling.) Taken from Wikipedia.
