Raging
Sea

The
Dragon’s Dove Chronicles Book 3

by
Kim Iverson Headlee

Genre:
Historical Fantasy 


Outcast,
clanless, and but a junior officer in Arthur the Pendragon’s army,
Angusel struggles to rebuild the life stolen from him through
betrayal by the person he had held most dear. His legion allegiance
thrusts him onto the campaign trail as one of Arthur’s forward
scouts, stalking Angli troops and being among the first to clash with
these vicious enemies at every turn. But the odds loom high against
him and his sword-brothers, and they will need a miracle just to
survive.



Pressured
to make the best choice to ensure her clan’s future leadership,
Eileann struggles with her feelings for Angusel, whose outcast status
makes him forbidden to her as a mate. When Angli treachery threatens
everyone she loves, she vows to thwart their violent plan to conquer
her clan. But she is no warrior, she has no soldiers to command, and
she will need a miracle just to survive.


How
can one soldier make a difference? How can one woman save her kin and
clan? In the crucible of combat, Angusel must surrender to the will
of the gods, and Eileann must invoke divine power to forge the most
dangerous warrior the world has ever known.

Morning’s
Journey

The
Dragon’s Dove Chronicles Book 2


Magnificent.”
~ Kathleen Foley, author of the Faith in Uniform series



In
a violent age when enemies besiege Brydein and alliances shift as
swiftly as the wind, stand two remarkable leaders: the Caledonian
warrior-queen Gyanhumara and her consort, Arthur the Pendragon. Their
fiery love is tempered only by their conviction to forge unity
between their disparate peoples. Arthur and Gyan must create an
impenetrable front to protect Brydein and Caledonia from land-lusting
Saxons and the marauding Angli raiders who may be massing forces in
the east, near Arthur’s sister and those he has sworn to
protect.


But
their biggest threat is an enemy within: Urien, Arthur’s rival and
the man Gyan was treaty-bound to marry until she broke that promise
for Arthur’s love. When Urien becomes chieftain of his clan, his
increase in wealth and power is matched only by the magnitude of his
hatred of Arthur and Gyan—and his threat to their infant
son.


Morning’s
Journey
,
sequel to the critically acclaimed 
Dawnflight,
propels the reader from the heights of triumph to the depths of
despair, through the struggles of some of the most fascinating
characters in all of Arthurian literature. Those struggles are
exacerbated by the characters’ own flawed choices. Gyan and Arthur
must learn that while extending forgiveness to others may be
difficult, forgiveness of self is the most excruciating—yet
ultimately the most healing—step of the entire journey.

Dragon’s Dove Chronicles Book 1


What
if King Arthur’s queen was every bit as heroic as he was? Find out
by immersing yourself in this epic story of the power couple whose
courage and conviction would shape the destiny of a nation.



Gyan
is a Caledonian chieftainess by birth, a warrior and leader of
warriors by training, and she is betrothed to Urien, a son of her
clan’s deadliest enemy, by right of Arthur the Pendragon’s
conquest of her people. For the sake of peace, Gyan is willing to
sacrifice everything…perhaps even her very life, if her foreboding
about Urien proves true.


Roman
by his father, Brytoni by his mother, and denied hereditary rulership
of his mother’s clan because of his mixed blood, Arthur has followed
his father’s path to become Dux Britanniarum, the Pendragon: supreme
commander of the northern Brytoni army. The Caledonians, Scots,
Saxons, and Angles keep him too busy to dwell upon his
loneliness…most of the time.


When
Gyan and Arthur meet, each recognize within the other their soul’s
mate. The treaty has preserved Gyan’s ancient right to marry any
man, providing he is a Brytoni nobleman—but Arthur does not
qualify. And the ambitious Urien, Arthur’s greatest political
rival, shall not be so easily denied. If Gyan and Arthur cannot
prevent Urien from plunging the Caledonians and Brytons back into
war, their love will be doomed to remain unfulfilled forever.


But
there is an even greater threat looming. The Laird of the Scots wants
their land and will kill all who stand in his way. Gyan, Arthur, and
Urien must unite to defeat this merciless enemy who threatens
everyone they hold dear.

This book is only 53 pages long. So it was quite a short read for me but I am happy that it left me with a feeling of satisfaction.

The story unfolds lots of secrets of every character who had there own past and there inner motive of revenge . Almost everything revolves around a dark past of these character which is effecting there present when a mysterious girl came whose name is spreeha a replica of chandra who shares past with Avensh and other two boys .

The question is she the same girl ….?

A fascinating read by author Kane , the vampire of maple town is a contemporary read , basically it’s full packed emotional ride of a little boy and author Kane show the different perspective of vampire . A sweet boy who is afraid to kill human . There is soo much jealousy, magic , revenge plot in this book that when you almost think you got it all cover then , another twist starts .

Author gives detailed view of maple town and also of every character in it , even they don’t have much role to play . It’s shows every aspect of life , the greedy parents to conservative one.

At first when I heard this book is coming I am in all hype because I seriously love vampires . And then I saw this gem on netgalley and I know that I need to get this so I got it hopefully .

I love how author uses simple language also some things in it reminds me of beauty and beast because of that rose part .

It’s well written and well crafted and I am looking forward to read next book of author.

Dodge Mysteries Book 1

Still,
the whole town is shocked when Velma’s body is found in the Municipal
Building’s old bomb shelter. The only clue to her murderer is a copy
of a cryptic message from a Nigerian email scammer.


All
the evidence points to Mayor Mike, who’s charged with killing Velma.
Investigator Ian Dodge, a British transplant who’s never quite taken
root in the Deep South,sets out to find out who else hated Velma
enough to kill her.


In
the course of his investigation, Ian discovers the dark secrets Velma
has been hiding all these years, and exactly why she was so mean.

Lorrie
Mattingly has it all.



Young
and beautiful, married to the richest man in town, she spends her
time driving fast cars, riding horses and keeping herself pretty. And
yet, she’s down to earth, and sweet, devoted to her handicapped twin
sister Linnie. Everyone loves her.


Maybe
not everyone.


When
she suffers from a severe allergic reaction during a tanning session,
private investigator Ian Dodge is called in by the owners of the
salon, since they’re getting sued big time. It doesn’t take long for
Ian to figure out Lorrie’s attack wasn’t an accident, or negligence
but attempted murder. Or to learn that there were plenty of people
who wanted this sweet girl dead.

Dodge Mysteries Book 3


Crusty
British transplant Ian Dodge is back on the beat, this time in the
service of Her Majesty, otherwise known as Laura Lane, the Food
Queen, star of a popular TV cooking show. A blackmailer has
threatened to expose her sordid past as a con artist, so she turns to
Ian Dodge to get it sorted.



When

deception and pork pies (lies) to find the culprit, all the while

Judy
Nichols lives in Wilmington, North Carolina, but she is by no means a
“Southern writer.” Born in Cincinnati, Ohio and raised in
the nearby town of Batavia, she still is a no-nonsense midwesterner.
Although she does find true southerners quite charming.



Judy

She has been a newspaper reporter, a teacher, a temporary office
worker, a customer service representative, a stay-at-home mom, a
volunteer, and a proud organizer of the now defunct Cape Fear Crime
Festival mystery writers’ conference.


Judy
started her first novel “Caviar Dreams” while her daughter
was napping one day. Five years later it was finished. The biggest
challenge arrived once her daughter stopped taking naps and
eventually lost interest in watching the “Toy Story”
video.


Since
then she has gone on to write several more books, including the Ian
Dodge Mysteries inspired by her UK born husband Nigel. Ian Dodge is a
persnickety private investigator, living in coastal North Carolina,
who refuses to be assimilated and instead hangs on to every shred of
his Britishness.


Now
that her daughter is grown up and gone, she spends lots of quality
time with her husband and Bailey the Wonder Dog. Also, reading and
writing good books.

When the Mayan calendar ended some people scoffed while others joked and a few waited for the end of the world. After living half her life apart from her native people, Dalia no longer believes in the supernatural and monstrous things that the final cycle predicted.
But unbelief is not protection.
Going home draws her into a fight against mythical creatures, limitless power and a battle for humanity’s survival. Can Dalia balance an outsider’s knowledge and tribal wisdom to give the world a fighting chance? Or will she choose to stay blind and let the world collapse around her?

Stella
of Akrotiri: Deminon

by
Linda Rae Sande

Genre:
Fantasy


Love
can last a thousand lifetimes when you’re an Immortal… or so they
thought.



What’s
become of the Immortal Darius? His wife, Stella, worries about his
fate as she rules over their city-state of Deminon, especially when
she learns he’s been the victim of treachery. She’ll do anything
to get him back.


Enslaved
as a traitor to Rome, Darius is forced to fight gladiators as part of
the funeral rites of powerful Romans. His years of experience on the
battlefield serve him well in the arena—until he’s forced to
fight Marcus—a younger, stronger gladiator who is unaware of his
own immortality.


Sure
he’s about to suffer a defeat by the hand of Marcus, Darius is
forced to make a decision that will change his future and
Stella’s—preserve his essence by allowing his body to die so that
he can live on in Marcus. His two-thousand years of memories and life
experiences should be powerful enough to overcome the essence of the
untested Immortal. Allow him to return to Stella and resume their
life together, even if she won’t immediately recognize him.


But
Marcus isn’t giving up so easily. Especially when he meets
Stella.


Will
Marcus help Darius take revenge on the one whose deceit led to his
arrest on charges of treason? Or will Darius’ essence slowly be
subsumed, the memories of his nearly two-thousand-year lifespan—and
of Stella—fading away in the mind of Marcus?


These
Immortals once had all the time in the world. Now it’s suddenly of
the essence.

Wicked origins

Wicked Origins

I have no idea what’s happening to me.

When a tornado dropped my car in a land of short, wild people, I was shocked. With no way to get home, no idea where I was and no clue how to communicate with the muchkins, I was completely out of luck. Then I found out that my car had landed on someone and killed them. Supposedly she was the Wicked Witch of the East.

If that wasn’t bad enough, now her ruby slippers magically appear on my feet, and slowly, I’m becoming her.

Now I need to get to Emerald City and see the Wizard if I want to stop the transformation and return home. But the yellow brick road is no cake-walk, and I don’t know what I’ll find at the end of this journey. Luckily, I have three brothers I meet along the way to help me on my journey. Each of them is vying for my affection, as if it doesn’t matter that my skin is turning green.

Wicked Origins is a modern YA Fantasy Retelling of L. Frank Baum’s original Oz tales.

Will this newfound power help her destroy the witch and gain the brothers their pardon? Or will the cost of using that new magic be too great?
