Trial by Fire (The New Earth Trilogy Book 1)

by Evan Tarver

There’s a prophecy on ancient Earth that says the heavens will destroy the world and purge the planet, forcing a reluctant savior to help humanity start anew. Brekken, the most advanced city-state known to man, is believed by its citizens too powerful to be destroyed by such fairy tales. Its people ignore the ancient warnings and rule over primitive humans, enjoying a gilded age of reason and prosperity.

However, not everything is as it seems. Usifi, son of Salem and heir to the King’s High Council, soon makes a discovery that will change the course of human history.

An unknown terror in the sky threatens to prove the prophecy true. The King responds by launching a plan to save a small group of citizens so the human race can survive the coming disaster. But Callen, the King’s evil advisor, sees this as an opportunity to seize power and implements a plan of his own. Can Usifi stop Callen and save humanity? Will he become his people’s savior?

He has six months to try. The human race depends on it.

SONG OF PRINCES, Book One

Sing Muse. Sing of the shining citadel of Troy rising from the hot sands of Asia. Sing of the Greek palaces ascending from their rocky hilltops. Sing of one woman’s dream heralding the madness of men and the murder of innocents. From bull dancing rings and wild meadows, the Forgotten Prince must choose between love and a golden crown. From seclusion and safety, the Golden Warrior must choose between his honor and his life. From behind the Great Wall, the Golden Prince must choose between his family and his city. And from a rugged realm on the far side of Greece, the Warrior King must choose between his son’s life and certain exile. Here shepherds and princes, warriors and kings, and seers and lovers seek to conquer their passions, outwit destiny or surrender to it.

PARIS, the FORGOTTEN PRINCE. Abandoned at birth and raised as a shepherd, Paris believes he is destined for a simple life. His heart belongs to the nymph, Oenone, until the beautiful Helen forces him to choose.

ACHILLES, the GOLDEN WARRIOR. Destined to live a short life, Achilles becomes the young lover of a princess who he abandons for the passions of war. He discovers that love is his only weakness.

HEKTOR, the GOLDEN PRINCE. As guardian of the citadel, Hektor must balance his heart’s desire between the beautiful Andromache and the people he’s sworn to protect.

ODYSSEUS, the WARRIOR KING. Forced into a war against his will, Odysseus leaves his young wife, Penelope, behind. Their love must stand the test of time and temptation.

DEVILS OF THE DESERT: (Book 2: CONQUISTADORS TRILOGY)

by Dennis Santaniello

The second installment of the CONQUISTADORS TRILOGY.

Sardina joins Coronado on his expedition to find the seven golden cities of the desert. Along the way each man struggles preserving their will and sanity against starvation, brutal attacks from the Indians, and a mystic shaman they name, “The Turk”, who promises to guide them to the cities.

But for Sardina, this expedition turns out to be far more than a material quest.
It becomes a spiritual passage through hell that changes him forever.

“CONQUISTADORS” is a book trilogy that explores the Spanish conquest of the New World from the years of 1527-1542. The genre is Historical Epic, and the storytelling is wide in scope with various characters and events unfolding within spans of years. The story is told from a truly dualistic point of view, from both perspectives of the Spanish and the Natives.

Each story in the trilogy depicts a different Spanish expedition, but in the end, this is Sardina’s story. We follow Sardina through the jungles of Peru, to the vast Arizona deserts, to the Mississippi River; seeing his transformation from a young idealistic soldier to harden veteran, and later to a self-realized individual.

Thematically, all stories are about the sacred vs. the profane, and each story follows a certain pattern: conquest, obsession, and madness. Other aspects are also explored: including religion, (of both the natives and the Spaniards), the realms of power, violence, cruelty, and the angst of those trying to find meaning.



Sandy’s Story (Ditch Lane Diaries Book 3)

by D.F. Jones

Angel and Demons Collide in Sandy’s Story (Ditch Lane Diaries 3)

Investigative reporter, Sandy Cothran follows a murder lead on Music Row which uncovers Luc’s Testament along with a string of related crimes.

Baldric is falling in love with Sandy breaking the rules of heaven and places her in danger because Luc is waiting in the wings to pounce at his given moment.

The Wards of Campbell Ridge fight with Heaven’s Warrior Angels in an epic supernatural battle against Luc and his demons to save one of The Chosen.

“D.F. Jones does it again. Definitely, a book you’ll want to sink your teeth into. So well written, great plot, and entertaining characters that you can’t help to fall in love. A definite page-turner. This Series had me at book one, and I couldn’t put it down. Each story brings you closer to each character, but this one was by far my absolute favorite. This book tells Sandy’s story. I love her. And Baldric, what’s not to love about him. This book is too good to give away too much so I’ll just say that if I were an angel, this book would have me sprinkling love dust all over the place. High five DF Jones. Remarkable Read!”

“This is the third book in the Ditch Lane Diaries. The first two books were good, but this one surpasses them. Don’t get me wrong; I love all the books. However, this book is my favorite of them all. The series follows the story of three friends; each book focuses on one. This is Sandy’s story, and my, what a story! It combines suspense, romance, and supernatural elements, creating an unforgettable tale. The author wrapped up the series well and ties most of the loose ends. The book is well written, the characters were vivid, and the story was gripping and sucked you right in from the start. This is a story about powerful love, loss, family, trust, and good vs., evil. As the tale gets underway, it has you grasping for more. If you didn’t read the series, I suggest you start with the first book as each book is tied to the next one. Highly recommended!”
