Ugly Drakeling: A science-fiction re-imagining of the ugly duckling. With dragons. (Drakeling-Series Book 1)

by Bo Miranda

Stealing a baby dragon is easier than you’d think. Especially if you’ve been put on community service at a drakonage, a shelter for stray dragons and close-to-hatching dragon eggs. Stealing the right dragon: that’s tricky, as Ezekiel shortly discovers.
Now, stuck with a hatchling he has no use for and no place to put, he must figure out a way out of this bind. It doesn’t help that a private security force shows up to investigate the theft, and the drakeling needs to eat. What do dragons eat, anyway? Liria, Ez’ childhood friend, would surely know. Too bad she’s across the galaxy on a faraway world and Ez’ only way to get to her is by somehow figuring out his dragon problem first.

“Ugly Drakeling” is a fast-paced action/adventure story that seamlessly blends science-fiction and fantasy elements, and constitutes the first episode in Ezekiel’s dragon adventures. The short story received an Honourable Mention in the “Writers of the Future”-contest’s 2nd quarter 2018 (Volume 35). It’s the perfect length to be devoured in a couple of hours.



Bloodstorm (Heart of a Vampire, Book 1)

by Amber Kallyn

When duty forces a shaman to stop a vampire from her revenge, love doesn’t just burn… it bites.

For two hundred years, Niki DeVeraux has been tracking the monster who murdered her family and made her a vampire. She finally catches up to him in a small Arizona town, only to face more than she bargained for. Amid an imperious vampire King, a shaky truce between the local clan and shifter pack, and a too-sexy sheriff who makes her remember she’s still a woman, Niki’s single-minded purpose is threatened for the first time since her turning.

Between his duties as Keeper of the peace for the Magic Council and heir to his tribe’s shamanistic magic, Sheriff Shane Spencer’s job is to protect humanity and stop the friction between the local Arcaine races before it turns into an all out blood war. To make matters worse, there’s an irresistible rouge vampire in town enflaming his senses.

When wolves start turning up dead, the tension between the paranormal races grows and suspicion falls on Niki. Shane knows she’s not to blame, and it has nothing to do with the primal urges she stirs within him. Working together, they must find a way to stop the hostilities from going over the edge. Trouble is, the desires raging between Niki and Shane might prove more dangerous than the surrounding threats.

by Laura Kreitzer

SHADOW OF THE SUN is the first book in Laura Kreitzer’s best-selling Timeless Series.

Gabriella’s past is a mystery, but that never stopped her from achieving her goals. As a Supernatural Specialist, and far more intelligent than anyone her age, she was always ignored by her peers. Because of the isolation she always felt, she put her life and soul into her job. Being a Supernatural Specialist hasn’t given her the divine intervention she always longed for, until one day a shipment arrives from Italy containing three dead bodies with an uncanny ability to regenerate. Gabriella is frightened and intrigued, but not as scared as she becomes when a dark creature attacks her.

As the bodies come back to life, the plot takes an unexpected twist that you won’t see coming. The supernatural world only begins to unfold before her as angels appear, her dreams start to haunt her, and the very past she has forgotten comes back with startling clarity. Romance blooms, escape plans are made, an assassin is out to kill her, and death is only around the corner. But what is more terrifying than all of this is the fact she is the chosen one, the Illuminator, the one who will save them all.



El Guardián de las Auras Verdes (Spanish Edition)

by Isabel Mª Almagro

«El contexto y los personajes están muy bien realjzados. Cada capítulo es pura acción, no deja de haber sorpresas»

El Rincón de Tinta

«Me encantó! Creo que fue algo que nunca había visto, y aunque es un tono de “cuento de hadas” la autora supo agregarlo de la mejor manera para hacer que funcionara y que ELEVARA muchísimo la novela, de verdad fue un final con broche de oro.

Si quieren algo entretenido, diferente pero lleno de fantasía y magia, se los recomiendo muchísimo.»
The P’s Mess

«Me ha gustado este libro, y recalco de nuevo el hecho de que se trata de una novela muy ligera, y no solo porque sea cortita sino también por su dinamismo interno»

SINOPSIS: El equilibrio se rige por la hegemonía de las auras verdes que habitan en nuestro planeta. Durante milenios, la oscuridad asoló el universo, mucho antes de ser creada la raza humana. El Sol, fue ensombrecido por las tinieblas y perpetuó el silencio. Un día, consiguió despertar de su letargo y creó a su hijo, Helios, el primer guardián de nuestra era. Uno tras otro, los guardianes protegieron con su vida la continuidad de las auras, pero el mal siempre habitará en los corazones de los humanos, siempre regresa.

Las sombras se alimentan de la energía que desprenden las auras rojas, sus portadoras son personas maliciosas y perversas; de esta manera, desequilibran la balanza. Además, con la llegada de un despiadado guardián negro, las auras son más vulnerables, cediendo a su voluntad con el único propósito de sobrevivir.

Por ello, los guardianes de las auras luchan contra la oscuridad, para evitar que sean tentadas y desaparezca la luz de su interior. Así, evitarán que el universo sea sumido en el caos y desaparezca todo cuanto amamos.

The Darklands

by Kayla Michelle

A Romantic Fantasy EPIC

***

A princess on the run.
A forbidden magic.
A kingdom hidden in plain sight.

***
The end of a dynasty does not always mean the end of a story. Sometimes, a fallen Kingdom may signal the beginning of something much more powerful.

After the Tyrant King, Seth Dreagan and his heirs are overthrown by a now vicious but once patriotic rebellion, The Triad has taken control. Violently exiled for their possession of magic, the three powerful Mages have gone mad with power and an appetite for revenge. The Kingdoms are wilting and people are starving, but without a benevolent source of magic to feed the land, The Triad may be the realms final downfall.      

â??With the Kingdom on the brink of social and ecological collapse, unbeknownst to The Triad, the royal heiress has survived. After a deadly escape from the castle, Princess Sera Draegan has fled to the wilds of the Darklands, a place of untamed magic and exiled creatures. For years she hides among the legendary forests, waiting, training for the day she becomes strong enough to take back her Kingdom and right the wrongs of her father’s reign. The Princess now rallies her allies, but The Triad will stop at nothing to seep their darkness into her new home and much further until there is nothing left to conquer. War is spilling into Darklands and the last living royal will stop at nothing to come out on top and save the ones she loves.      

â??Sometimes a rebellion is just the beginning. It’s what comes afterwards that decides the fate of a Kingdom.

Hook: Exiles of the Realm

by Adrienne Bell

This might not be Neverland, but then again, he’s not your mother’s Captain Hook.

Infamous thief, James Hook knows all about chaos. Back in the Fae Realm, he wove enough trouble to earn himself a one-way ticket to exile. Now he’s been banished to a world without magic, and his only hope of getting back home hinges on stealing the heart of the one woman who seems immune to his charm.

Mercy Herrera’s daily life is a well-ordered machine. Between work, volunteering, and finishing her degree, she doesn’t have room for distractions. So when a dangerously seductive stranger sweeps into her life promising the solutions to all her problems, Mercy doesn’t have time for his antics. Not until mysterious forces upend her world-the kind her rational mind tell her can’t possibly exist.

But when a simple mistake turns into a disaster, the pair are thrust into the fight of their lives, and forced to make a gut-wrenching decision-risk their hearts, or stand alone against fate.

***
Part thrilling fantasy, part romantic comedy, and filled with plenty of action, HOOK is the first novel in the Exiles of the Realm paranormal romance series.
