Escaping Destiny (Tapestry, Book 1)

by Jeffrey Pierce

There is a world beyond our own, a place that resides backstage to our own reality.  In a realm where magic is woven into the very fabric of the land, an ancient prophecy promises that thirteen mortals will alter not only this hidden world, but that they are the keys that will change the future of all existence.

The forces of darkness and light search for the thirteen mortals, their desperate race against the other factions blurring the line between good and evil, between hero and villain.  One by one, the thirteen mortals are swayed or captured.

Kai Oakman is one of the thirteen mortals spoken of in the prophecy. With his faerie lover, Ko’laru, they seek to live free, their lives pledged only to each other.  As the noose around the thirteen individuals tightens, as all of reality is swept up in the prophesied change, the mortals seek to escape their destiny but that choice may no longer be theirs to make.



Remembering Tomorrow

by Jeffrey Pierce

In a final stand of old growth timber, a stranger is found shivering in a patch of new snow on a hot summer day. The world has changed from the one he knew; society has stumbled and the rural areas have lost their connection to the rest of the country. Over the last sixty years, a culture has grown amidst the myths of the world before, developing its own beliefs around the ever present cycles of nature. Those who live within the shadows of the ancient trees have never seen a television or an electric light, they have never watched a plane climb into the sky or listened to voices echoing from a radio.

The nightmare Alexander escaped from, that left him shivering with fear in a blanket of summer snow, is not ready to let him go. The echoes of another world slip into the mortal realm in the jealousy of an immortal lover who seeks to possess the one man who has ever told her, “No.” He has always held out for the love he once knew, the woman whose memory gave him strength through the years spent in the realm of the fae, never submitting to the immortal Nakayla’s icy embrace. And now he has escaped to find Megan, the woman he loves, living in another lifetime, surrounded by a world he doesn’t know.

Within the pages of Remembering Tomorrow we discover that the myths of our past are intimately tied to the environment of the present. We find that hatred and rage are powers that can rival those of love and sacrifice. As the story builds to a tension-filled climax, lives are lost, the bonds of magic are severed, and we discover that sometimes losing the battle is the only way to win the war.

The Lie Spinners (The Deception Dance)

by Rita Stradling

Last summer, with the help of demon-killer Stephen Tapper, Raven Smith faced Hell on Earth to stop the demon-apocalypse (or more like, put it on hold). Raven made a deal with the Grand Marquis of Hell: he would not open the gates of hell if she promised not to fall in love with anyone until he returned for her.

Almost a year has passed and summer has come againâ?¦

Raven is safe. Relatively. She’s protected. Doggedly. She’s away from the demons, the hell, the madness. Until she falls asleep.

When the earth-witch Madeline shows up in Raven’s hometown (aka her prison), calling in Raven’s life-debt, Raven shouldn’t even listen to Madeline’s proposal. But she does.

Madeline tells her that months ago, Stephen travelled to Thailand to track down a magician called The Spider; but within days of arriving, Stephen vanished. Every person (be they witch or demon-killer) Madeline sent to find Stephen was hunted down, overwhelmed and murdered by demons. The message Madeline received after all attempts failed was clear: send in Raven Smith or Stephen dies.

Going to Thailand might possibly be the stupidest decision Raven could ever makeâ?¦ there are a thousand reasons why Raven should stay guarded, protected, safe; only one reason why she shouldn’t.

Stephen.

One reviewer called “Blackbird…” A must-read treasure, December 24, 2012

By Henrietta Lala “herbalwiz” (St. Martinville, LA) – See all my reviews

Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

This review is from: Blackbird: A Boy Meets The Devil For the First Time (Kindle Edition)

I’ve been reading about 70 years and Blackbird is one of those rare nuggets of pure gold in a whole mountain of clay . It plays out like the blues, full of riffs and bass and gravel that spin themselves into a mirror of soul not ashamed to get down and dirty and come up dragging us into a light we refused to open our eyes to before. Don’t let the stomp and shuffle and guffaws fool you into thinking it’s not about you, you ain’t gonna get off that easy. I was in Gadsden Alabama for about three months in 1958, and he’s not telling any lies. It was my first experience with deep southern segregationist views. A great morality tale told by a masterful and powerful writer about a very unique character.

About this story:

Things look bad when a guy who is adverse to vampires loses his job at the local “Feed The Children” organization. He spent the last of his last unemployement check three days ago, and has had nothing to eat since then. And man… is he hungry.

Knowing what may follow, they set out in search of the children destined to change their world, and now that the wheels of the Prophecy are in motion, they can only do one thing. They must find the boys who, as young men, will win the coming war for them.
