The Unicorndoll

by Jon Jacks

A unicorndoll is a means to finding a real unicorn.
Because yes, unicorns exist.
And they’re as graceful and pure as the myths suggest.
But to find one, you have to unweave the truth from the lies.
And a princess, even a maiden princess like me – well, she’s just too caught up in life’s pleasures to set out on such a potentially fruitless quest.
But I’ve no choice; for only a unicorn horn can save Mother’s life.

A LIGHT TO THE RUINED: The Rey of Known Book One

by Kenneth Britton

In a wasteland known as the Ruined populated by roving clans, there exists a kingdom of prosperity-the city of Vratigrand. This coveted kingdom is ruled over by the imposing House Rey, consisting of King Roland, Queen Ebony, and their three children, Bellamy, Lyssa, and Chauncey.
All three of the Rey siblings seek the throne of Vratigrand for their own reasons, aided by their supporters. But as the siblings squabble over a throne and their parents take sides, the clans of the the Ruined are stirring, preparing for a war that Vratigrand simply isn’t prepared for. And matters get even more complicated when another kingdom long hidden gets involved…
Told from the perspectives of Bellamy, Lyssa, and Chauncey, A Light to the Ruined examines faith, loyalty, the bonds of family, and what our places are in the grand scheme of the Lord.

The Hunting of the Snark – With the Original High Resolution Illustrations of Henry Holiday: The Impossible Voyage of an Improbable Crew to Find an Inconceivable Creature or an Agony in Eight Fits

by Lewis Carroll

This carefully crafted ebook: “The Hunting of the Snark – With the Original High Resolution Illustrations of Henry Holiday” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Hunting of the Snark is a nonsense poem written by Lewis Carroll. Written from 1874 to 1876, the poem borrows the setting, some creatures, and eight portmanteau words from Carroll’s earlier poem “Jabberwocky” in his children’s novel Through the Looking Glass. The plot follows a crew of ten trying to hunt the Snark, an animal which may turn out to be a highly dangerous Boojum; the only one of the crew to find the Snark quickly vanishes, leading the narrator to explain that it was a Boojum after all. Henry Holiday illustrated the poem, and the poem is dedicated to Gertrude Chataway, whom Carroll met as a young girl at the English seaside town Sandown in the Isle of Wight in 1875. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832 – 1898), better known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was an English writer, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer. His most famous writings are Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass, as well as the poems “The Hunting of the Snark” and “Jabberwocky”, all examples of the genre of literary nonsense. He is noted for his facility at word play, logic, and fantasy.

Flight to Dragon Isle (The Dragonsdome Chronicles Book 2)

by Lucinda Hare

Fantasy Book Review ~ Like a dragon, Lucinda Hare’s second novel has some fire in its belly. In Flight to Dragon Isle, the heat has been turned up: more action, more adventure.

If you’ve read the first book, The Dragon Whisperer, then the return of Quenelda and Root will be like revisiting old friends (if you haven’t read it, then go and read it…now!) You might think nothing’s changed. Quenelda is still the headstrong girl we met in book one and Root is still the nervous gnome, but this pair are slowly finding their feet. Root is growing in confidence (but still manages the odd mishap, which makes him as funny as ever) and Quenelda, the girl who can talk to dragons, is slowly realising that she has more power and magic within her, than anyone ever imagined.

As in the first book, Hare continues to spread magic over her words. In the Seven Sea Kingdoms, not even something as normal as the date and time are well…normal. Wouldn’t it be great if we could meet our friends at â??the hour of the irritated bumblebee’ instead of three o’clock? Wouldn’t it be great if this year was â??the year of the Sabre-Toothed Doormouse’ instead of 2011?

Above all, this second book packs a punch. An almighty war breaks out with the hobgoblins, and Quenelda’s world is thrown into turmoil. As the reader, you’re either rooting for something to go right, or hoping something doesn’t go wrong. Hare takes you on a journey and you really don’t know how things are going to turn out. This is a darker tale, filled with dark magic; that Hare describes vividly, so certain moments play out like a film in your head.

What about the dragons? There’s Frosts, Magmas, Vampires… (yes, Vampire dragons) along with the wonderfully named â??I’ve Already Eaten’ and Quenelda’s own dragon, â??Two Gulps and You’re Gone’.

By the time you’ve finished this book, you’ll wish dragons were on sale at the local pet shop.

Marrying A Monster (The Jaiya Series Book 1)

by Mel Dunay

New, professionally edited edition!

Journey to the country of Jaiya, in a world not quite like ours. Here, humans ride trains, drive cars, and use cell phones, but they share their world with insect people and trollfolk, and stranger things lurk in the shadowsâ?¦

As a favor to her parents, Rina agreed to come back to her hometown and take part in an old local custom: a symbolic marriage between the town’s women and its guardian spirit, the Mountain King. She didn’t know she’d be marrying a monsterâ?¦or kissing the man hunting the monster!

Note: Rina and another character are friends with or related to a few characters from the later books in the Jaiya series, but Monster is meant as a standalone with a “happily for now” ending. The romance is on the sweet side, but there is some violence due to the main characters’ encounters with monsters and criminals.

The White Company

by Arthur Conan Doyle

A historical adventure set during the Hundred Years’ War. The story follows a young man as he leaves the shelter of an abbey in England and becomes involved with Edward, the Black Prince’s campaign in Spain. Doyle later wrote a prequel, titled “Sir Nigel”, concerning the early life of one of the heroes in this novel.

“We go to France, and from thence I trust to Spain, in humble search of a field in which we may win advancement and perchance some small share of glory. For this purpose I would have you know that it is not my wont to let any occasion pass where it is in any way possible that honor may be gained. I would have you bear this in mind, and give great heed to it that you may bring me word of all cartels, challenges, wrongs, tyrannies, infamies, and wronging of damsels. Nor is any occasion too small to take note of, for I have known such trifles as the dropping of a gauntlet, or the flicking of a breadcrumb, when well and properly followed up, lead to a most noble spear-running.”

– Sir Nigel, “The White Company”
