Uncommon Purpose (The Hope Island Chronicles Book 1)

by PJ Strebor

Following the bloody war between the Athenian Republic and the Pruessen Empire, an uneasy peace has settled over the region of space known as The Tunguska Fault.

The Telford family’s independent trading vessel, the Belinda is captured by Pruessen slavers and the crew forced into a life of brutal servitude. Their desperate bid for freedom succeeds but a tragic price is paid.

Years pass and Nathan Telford, fighting the nightmares of his past and yearning for revenge, joins the Athenian Navy. His first posting is aboard the warship Truculent, patrolling the northern quarantine zone beyond which lurks the Empire.

Answering a distress call from a beleaguered freighter, the routine mission becomes a desperate fight for survival. The Pruessans are once again testing the defenses of the Republic and this time they have technology far in advance of the last war.

It is left to Nathan, three untried middies and a disgruntled petty officer to try and avert a looming disaster.

With their high tech weapons rendered useless and facing overwhelming odds, Nathan risks everything on a brave, hastily conceived gamble.

Fid’s Crusade (The Chronicles of Fid Book 1)

by David Reiss

Finalist, 2018 Publishers Weekly BookLife Prize

“One of the most refreshing and lively takes on the superhero genre I’ve seen in years.”

— Hugo award-winning author Tim Pratt

Even supervillains have lines they dare not cross.

If only the same could be said of heroes…

For more than two decades, the sight of Doctor Fid’s powered armor has struck terror into the hearts of hero and civilian alike. But when a personal tragedy motivates Doctor Fid to investigate a crime, a plot is uncovered so horrific that even he is taken aback.

Haunted by painful memories and profound guilt, the veteran supervillain must race against time if he is to have any hope of confronting the approaching threat. Every battle takes its toll…but the stakes are too high for retreat to be an option.

Read the supervillainous sci-fi action-thriller that critics have called “immediately engaging”, “ridiculously fun”, and “a solid foundation for a new series!”



The Witches’ Stones Book Three – Revenge of the Catspaw

by Helena Puumala

In this, the third and final book of The Witches’ Stones saga, the attractive part human-part Kordean Witch psychic Sarah Mackenzie and the handsome Terran Confederation agent Coryn Leigh face some profound dangers and challenges, some personal and some that span the galaxy.
As the book opens, Sarah and Coryn pledge their love in a Kordean marriage ceremony. That ceremony contains both a blessing and a curse, and the ultimate working out of that blessing and curse will prove instrumental in resolving both of their fates.

Coryn finds himself a prisoner of the corrupt Elites of The Organization, the people who call themselves the Neotsarians, an authoritarian empire whose rulers consider themselves the natural overlords of the Milky Way galaxy. He becomes a “catspaw”, bait to lure Sarah into their hands, in their continuing quest to use her psychic powers to augment a deadly super-weapon, one that is capable of ensuring that they can rule the galaxy. Against his will, he also becomes the plaything of “Evil Evilla Copoz”, perhaps the most unsavoury of the Neotsarian elites.

In the first book of the trilogy, Coryn has to rescue Sarah from a terrible fate. This time, it is Sarah who must try to save him from Evil Evilla, while avoiding falling into the trap that the Neotsarians have set for her. She, along with a group of willing, adventurous associates, must infiltrate Neotsarian space in order to attempt a spectacular rescue, not just of Coryn, but of others who have been enslaved even as he has been. The Blessing and Curse hang over all of the characters in the story, with a twist that truly reflects the “revenge of the Catspaw”, in all of its multiple meanings.

Beyond the pure adventure story, is a deeply emotional story of love and recovery. Coryn and Sarah must undergo trials both physical and psychological, in order to keep their love alive through the most appalling of circumstances and the most harrowing of memories. Fortunately, they have the power of the Blessing and the Curse to help them through the ordeal, as well as their own very considerable inner strengths.

The novel is about 115,000 words, about 8 to 10 hours reading at typical reading speeds. It is the final book of the trilogy, at least for now, although writer Helena Puumala has “kept the door open” to perhaps pursue new adventures in Sarah and Coryn’s universe at a later date.

The young man readily finds a guide, Doctor Leete, who shows him around and explains all the advances of this new age, including drastically reduced working hours for people performing menial jobs and almost instantaneous, Internet-like delivery of goods. The two-start working on improving the future with the experiences from the past and the presence.
Looking Further Backward – Set in future of 2023 the book narrates the story of how China invades USA in 2020 after China has adopted rampant capitalism as opposed to rest of the world who are in throes of Nationalism, a socialism like set up. Written in a form of a diary, the novel directly hits out at Edward Bellamy’s 1888 Utopian novel Looking Backward. The political drama that unfolds in this novel will make you deeply wonder how the author could foresee so much!



Saturnastra: Marduke (Vol Book 1)

by Teresita Blanco

There comes a time when a reader must turn into a writer. For most of my adolescence, I was reading a large range of books. Most of them focuses on fantasy. One day, I started to grow bored of them. It seemed to me that the entire genre was just repeating itself. It was then when I decided to write my own fantasy book. By then, I had already some experience with writing. I had just finished my long poetry series, and I had a couple of short stories under my belt. It seemed like the right time to jump into a longer project. This was when I conceived my Saturnastra series. I have been working on the series all throughout college. Even though I graduated from Journalism, I still kept up with my fantasy book series. Even tonight, I will be adding more to the 10th book in the series. The front cover I painted it myself. It features my protagonist Marduke sitting on the empty throne of the King. Despite being fantasy, my story has a tad bit of horror elements blended in there. It wasn’t my idea to have a horror scene. Rather, I noticed it when I was reading it to my editor. My dear brother asked me, “Why did this turn into a horror movie?” I did not have an answer for him. It just happened. Aside from horror, there are some comic elements. I cannot point them out per say. Rather, I tend to be randomly funny. I only notice when I read some of the scenes out loud, and my brother cannot help but chuckle. This first book sums up my ideas of everything that a fantasy book should have. This includes a dragon, a magic guy, army battles, demons, and a male Sphinx. As for the target age group, there really isn’t one. When I write, I do not have a target audience. I only write the type of book that I would enjoy reading. I can at least say that I avoid one particular type of scene that have become so common place in today’s fantasy books. Why is the book series called Saturnastra? Saturn is a familiar planet we all know and loved. It was formally a gas giant, till I gave it some magical reworkings. The Astra portion refers to a type of magical weapon. The other aspect of the title is the name of the protagonist. All the books in the series will focus on a different person. From time to time, there will be crossovers between each of the books in the series. Officially, I have 4 books already good to go. I will have them published in the near future. The others still require a bit of editing. As of now, I am working on writing the 10ths book in the series. Overall, there is going to be 14 books. This is assuming that one of the books does not turn into two. As the title suggests, the book is about a fellow named Marduke. Unlike most fantasy characters, Marduke isn’t an orphan and he has a long extended family. Even when he gets adopted by a noble lady, he still keeps tabs on his family from time to time. He ends up being constricted into the army. Most of the plot takes place in the capital city of Veragerung. A ruthless monarch has been ruling there for more than 200 years. His race is as ambiguous as his past. The only thing that people there know for certain about the King is that his word is law. The story focuses on the power struggle between Marduke and the King.
