Red Gambit: Book One of the Harvesters Series

by Luke R. Mitchell

A mercenary and an arcanist walk into a bar.
Mistake number one.

It’s been 15 years since the bombs fell. Those who survive scrape by in constant fear of famine, murderous marauders, and worse: the raknoth. No one knows what they are or where they came from. Only that they destroyed the world. And now they rule what’s left.

Jarek Slater never lost sleep over the fact. He had his ship. He had his exosuit. He went where he pleased, dealt justice where he saw fit. Life was good. Simple. But then someone had to go and steal his exosuit. And you just don’t steal another man’s exosuit.

When Jarek’s only lead turns out to be locked up in a raknoth stronghold, though, things get interesting. When that lead’s big sis shows up waving around a silver staff, smacking around grown men with telekinesis, and stopping bullets in mid-air, things get, well, more interesting. And when the two of them get drawn into a race across the post-apocalyptic country to save her brother and find his suit…

Look, suffice it to say Jarek didn’t sign up for this crap. Energy-bending arcanists? Red-eyed space vampires? Teamwork?

Oh, and then there’s that mysterious alien artifact that might just bring on the second apocalypse.

No. Jarek sure as crap didn’t sign up for this. And neither did his fiery new friend. But together, they might just be strong enough to pull it off.

Assuming they don’t kill each other first…

RED GAMBIT is the first book in the Harvesters Series, an alien invasion adventure set on a post-apocalyptic Earth. Think HALO meets DRESDEN FILES, with STAR WARS flavored sprinkles. Fans of Michael Anderle, Lindsay Buroker, and Chris Fox will love this series for its “fast-paced adventure,” “compelling characters,” and “wonderfully wise-cracking dialogue.”

The Royal Rogue

by Elizabeth Carlton

A tale of forbidden romance, adventure, and unprecedented betrayal awaits you in The Royal Rogue. Let your heart pound to the rhythm of clashing swords and thundering hooves in this adrenaline fueled adventure.

Set within the fabled city of Nevaharday, the story begins with Jaycent Connor, a reluctant prince who refuses to assume his father’s title after a mysterious illness took his parents lives. The lords of the land couldn’t sway the prince to ascend the throne and assume his rightful place as ruler. The harder they tried, the farther the prince seemed to drift into a realm of apathy and solitude.

Then the nightmares began. Terrible, brutal dreams that crossed the threshold into reality as the prince found himself waking up to the wounds he had sustained in his sleep. Rest became impossible as the life of Nevaharday’s only heir teetered in the balance. Healers were baffled, their remedies useless, so Prince Connor took matters into his own hands. He sought the help of an outlawed band of horse folk known as “the gypsies.” Particularly, a green eyed beauty named Levee Tensley.

Together they unravel the truth. The prince was never ill. Neither were his parents. It all led back to the magic and lies of an illusionist bent on seizing his kingdom and extinguishing the Connor line. However, the more they uncover, the more they wonder: can they stop him? Or are their efforts too little, too late?

Whether you’re a fantasy connoisseur, horse lover, or casual reader, Carlton’s debut novel will have you enchanted from the first paragraph to the very last page. Her race of “horse folk” are original, charming, and so believable, they will pull you right into the story.
