Heroes of Ravenford Books 1 – 3: Ruins on Stone Hill, Serpent Cult, Dark Monolith

by F P Spirit

Mix magic and mystery with novice young heroesâ??what do you get? Danger, mayhem, and loads of sarcasm.

Ruins on Stone Hill

“Magic is easy.” That’s what Glolindir thought, until he came across his first real monster. Luckily, he survived, thanks to his new friends. Little did they know that things were about to go from bad to worse. After 150 years of relative peace, dark forces are rising around the little town of Ravenford. Only one thing stands in their wayâ??this band of young misfits.

Serpent Cult

Things just got a lot more dangerous for Glolindir and friends. After barely surviving encounters with monsters and black magic, they discovered the truth behind it all. A dark cult had set its sights on the little town of Ravenford. Can they save the town from an army of dark cultists, fierce monsters, and perhaps worst of all, diplomatic officials?

Dark Monolith

After an epic battle with a dark cult, things should have gone smooth for the young heroes. Right? Wrong. Seth crosses paths with a mysterious gypsy and together they make a gruesome discovery. Deadly magic from the time of the Thrall Wars still exists and the cult is after it. Can they find the Dark Monolith before the cultists?

Fans of the Heroes of Ravenford compare it to Harry Potter, Forgotten Realms, and the Lord of the Rings. If you like any of these, then you’ll love this series.

Rise of The Witch (Circus of Shifters, The Phoenix’s Ashes Book 1)

by Rebecca Ethington

It all started when he found me, naked, in an alley, locked out of my hotel room.

There I was with my naked â??derrière’ waggling behind a dumpster, and in walks Mr. 1950s with his expensive suit, smooth voice, and long hair that I could just see myself tangling my fingers in.

Mr. 1950s was just the start, and now I’m stuck in a palpitating version of “It’s Raining Sexy Dragons”. You might think that that’s the beginning of some epicly sexy happy ever after, but that’s not quite my style.

You see, I’m a phoenix shifter and I am being hunted by the baddest Mother F-er around. A king who thinks I’m the key to eternal life, and wants to drink my blood to get there. Sick.
These dragons are sure putting a wrench in my plans for staying alive, and not just because it’s killing me having to keep my hands off them.

Because, I want my hands to be everywhere. Hair. Lips. Legsâ?¦ Ho-ly! No! I need to keep myself sane, alive, and clothed. Most definitely clothed.

Did you know a shifter has a “bristling mating instinct” when it comes to their mate.
Yeah, neither did I. And here I am with three. I thought you were only supposed to have one.
I am so screwed.

Rise of The Witch is a full length Shifter Paranormal Romance coming in at just over 105,000 words.
Not only will you piss yourself laughing, this book contains Reverse Harem elements, a fair bit of swears, lots of shirtless men, and fade-to-grey steam.
This book may or may not end in a cliffhanger.
You have been warned.

Shadows of Atlantis: Awakening

by Mara Powers

“…had me turning the pages obsessively from the very beginning.” Readers Favorite.

Enter the legacy of the legend…
Brigitte has been chosen to renew the treaty between Atlantis and the ancient bloodline of Lemuria. As an emissary of nature, her betrothal would ensure the continued function of the Crystal Grid, the life source of the ten kingdoms of Atlantis. But as Brigitte prepares to leave from her home in the magical Dreamvale, her people are attacked by a storm of shadows. Now she is running for her life.

Upon her arrival in the ruling city of Atlantis, she meets D’Vinid, a dejected musician who lives the quintessential Atlantean lifestyle of revelry, escapism and apathy. Under the eclipse of a sacred festival, they are swept into an attraction they cannot resist. Their union may protect humanity from its worst enemy – the shadows of Atlantis. But there is one problem, this man is not her betrothed.

Brigitte soon discovers that the corruption of the Grid could very well be the Grid itself. Citizens have neglected to attend the rituals required to charge the crystals with their psychic emanations. Some have fallen prey to an epidemic called “the madness”, caused by shadowy parasites that feed off human suffering. But as nature always strives toward balance, the crystals have activated a genetic upgrade among the people. The youth have begun to express supernatural powers. Could it be that D’Vinid and Brigitte are meant to be leaders among the awakened? And if so, why does it seem impossible for them to be together?

A mysterious tale of romance, seduction and betrayal that reaches just enough into the modern mind to ask – will we learn the lessons of Atlantis?



Pans Fountain

by Aline Riva

At the age of sixteen, Nina discovered a secret within the hedge maze of Orchard Row House – the statues within can move and speak. Many years later she meets Tyler Macbeth, member of a notorious crime family and occupant of Orchard Row House. They begin a relationship, sharing not only love for each other but also their love of master and servant role play. But Tyler does not share The Secret handed on to his brothers because he chose to ignore family tradition – he has no idea what is living beneath the maze at his family home. He is also unaware that he is not a true Macbeth, which only becomes clear after he is bitten and poisoned by a stone snake that comes alive at the heart of the maze.

As Tyler seeks out the truth Nina is by his side, and together they learn of the unearthly force that dwells below ground – idolised by his brothers – Tony believes it has given him power and Max fanatically worships and fantasises about the creature, thinking of it as a goddess as the creature was portrayed in medieval history.

When Tyler finds out the creature will rise from below ground upon the coming eclipse, he decides to kill it, knowing he may also have to stand up against the power of his own brothers to do so, as he and Nina unite to fight the creature, knowing it is not a demon of myth and legend, but an alien who fell to earth many centuries ago…



The Arcane Knights’ Academy (The Gods of Bel’Qamar Book 1)

by C. H. V. Ramos

What do you call something with so much power that it could literally live above the clouds and walk over the mere mortals of the world? And what do you call those who live under the shadow of such power?

These are questions that don’t plague the mind of the soldiers at the Arcane Knight’s Academy, for they are the absolute rulers of Bel’Qamar. In their mighty fortress among the clouds, young gods are trained from infancy to become the guardians of the world, protecting it against all threat, learning discipline and order, to use their divine powers in the service of peace.
But as they grow up, all gods inevitably start to question their purpose, their place in the world and their destiny.

For if all gods are guardians, they too are prisoners of fate.

After all, if not for their powers, what makes them different from other humans? And if not for the words, what makes guardians different from tyrants?
And more importantly, in a world where some individuals can summon death and destruction at the tip of their fingers, how is it possible to maintain order?

Riddled with philosophical thoughts, this is a journey not into the world, but into ourselves.

Tennen is a god taken from among humans. He doesn’t know the world, he doesn’t know his powers and he is at an age where these are only a few of the questions bombarding his mind. The transition between blissful ignorance of childhood into the world of responsibilities and self-conscience may not be that different from one of isolation to a world of mighty powers after all.
And to complicate the matters, he will befriend some of the most rebellious members of the Arcane Knights’ Academy, in a journey of discovery about the world of the gods, the exigences of life, the acceptance of fate, and of themselves.

Magic, mystery, philosophy, analogies. The Arcane Knight’s Academy invites you to participate in this journey, make discoveries with its characters and perhaps find something about yourself as well.
Behind the adventure and hidden secrets, this book seeks to provide not answers, but to raise questions that only you can answer.
