The Shells Of Chanticleer

by Maura Patrick

Everyone’s afraid of something …..

When the accidental jab of a sharp splinter results in a life-threatening illness, Macy Winters becomes delirious and is at death’s door. Like a modern day Sleeping Beauty, she hovers between life and death, awakening in a beautiful land called Chanticleer, where everything is always, absolutely perfect.

So perfect that Macy is convinced she must have died and gone to heaven. She is quickly assured that she has been purposely brought to Chanticleer to eliminate her pesky childhood fears. She is soon off on a series of frightful challenges designed to make her a stronger, braver girl.

Chanticleer is not without its dark side. Every student there knows it is best to learn your lessons quickly and get out because those who can’t–or won’t–are subject to a hideous fate.

Macy vows to do everything she can to get out of Chanticleer quickly. Yet when she falls for Sebastian, a fellow student, she suddenly changes her mind. For to wake up from Chanticleer is to forget everyone there and forgetting Sebastian is the last thing she ever wants to do. But no one in Chanticleer is who they seem to be and Macy soon discovers that her and Sebastian’s fairy-tale ending will come at a price, a price she may ultimately be too afraid to pay.

Of Heroes, None: A Tapestry of Twisted Threats in Folio

by Stephen Donald Huff

Champions come in all shapes and forms. The same is true of cowards. Most of us line up somewhere between these two extremes of potential, but none of us eagerly anticipate having to prove ourselves in a crossfire.

In fact, most notable acts of heroism are not the results of well-considered, carefully laid plans. Rather, these are often spontaneous yet deliberate demonstrations of selflessness occasionally on display when normal human beings must confront life-threatening risk.

Take a deep, calming breath now, before you dare gaze into the face of death. Trembling, heed its heckling catcalls. Of broken people living broken lives; of ever hopeful children slowly ground into cynical adults beneath crushing realities; of good men trapped in bad places and of bad men working good deeds; of tangible human guilt and scatological human torment; such twisted threads weave life’s strange tapestries. Of redemptions failed or delivered, here find disturbing variations, and of heroes, none.

Reviews Snippets & Book Trailer
one of the best fantasy novels I’ve read in a long time.

… recommend this to any reader that enjoyed the Harry Potter books.

… story of talking animals and magic was not only enchanting but the best book of its kind since The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.

Reminded me in some way of Johnny Quest from my childhood.

a great gift to a teenager who loves fantasy adventure.

…  a clean read for kids!

… Entertaining story for young and the not so young.

an exciting read that moves you, gives you the chills and keeps you on the edge of your seat.

… filled the adolescents’ adventure with many paranormal characters, battles, tunnels and many kinds of excitement on every page.

clever play between the modern world with science and the world of magic that we all want to believe in is great.

loved the science vs magic theme throughout the book.
