Fiction Friday!

Remember, remember the fifth of November ….

And this November 5th I have four fantastic reads to recommend for your weekend reading pleasure.

First up check out Kings of Sea and Sky by Katie Cherry.

Katie sagely advises “Don’t attempt to befriend something that eats people!”

Though Alexander has fought minotaurs, befriended dragons, and traversed the land, there’s one place in Zilferia he hasn’t explored.

The ocean.

Pearl isn’t thrilled with him constantly seeking out danger, but his affections for her won’t slow Alexander down. After all, supposedly there are man-eating merfolk down there!

He’s never leapt so enthusiastically at a life-threatening situation as this one, but there may be more in those dark depths than he’s prepared for.

***** This short story takes place before the events of the Crystal Dragon Saga and makes a thrilling, enlightening edition to the tale as we learn more about Crystal’s parents long before she was born. Fast-paced clean, YA Fantasy that you won’t want to miss! Claim your FREE copy today!

Next up – Eye of the Jaguar by Jeff D. Ellis.

David and Abby are coworkers at a video game company. Their lives are turned upside down as David is chosen to protect the world against monsters, and she discovers her magic. Their partnership blooms into a powerful romance which neither are prepared for. Together they must face an evil that claimed the lives of David’s parents over an artifact of great power, the Eye of the Jaguar.

The monsters never rest. They lurk, waiting for me to go to sleep.

Already, I have lost everything in my fight with the monsters that haunt my dreams, but my nightmares become a reality when I am kidnapped by a shadowy government agency called the IDA.

Drafted into the IDA’s army of dreamers, the monsters become more real than they have ever been before. I am beginning to learn who, or what, I am—and the responsibility it brings with it.

It’s a fight between good and evil on a plane between worlds. We learn to shift into the warriors we need to be to slay the demons of the underworld. Everything rests on our shoulders.

This is a fight we cannot lose because if we lose, we lose EVERYTHING.

If you enjoyed Ready Player One, Assassin’s Creed, and The Mortal Instruments, then you don’t want to miss this haunting paranormal urban fantasy.

Fiction Friday

Hi folks, it’s time for another Fiction Friday collection. Today I have three awesome indie titles to recommend.

First off, something a little different …

A note from the author: My mother, Eleanor LaRue, initially wrote this manuscript in 1960 but never had it published…she left it to me when she passed away in 1995…**BEFORE** I began writing. I found the story when I moved a few years ago and felt compelled to bring her story to life. Over the last two years, I’ve updated, edited, tweaked, and added a time travel element for a contemporary spin. My mom lived decades before her time, but her message is as significant today as it was in 1960. Thank you for reading our novel!

So what’s it about?

In a country divided, where terrorists hijack peaceful protests and threaten the fabric of America’s democracy, President Emery Clayton, III discovers a global power behind the insurrection. He escapes to the White House attic to plan a counterblow, steering clear of initiating World War III––and vanishes.

After years of studying to realize his dream, James Rucker’s future explodes when he’s falsely accused of cheating on his final exams. Vowing he’s had enough, he joins a civil rights movement. But his trip to connect with the anarchists stops cold when his flight is struck by lightning and plummets into the ocean.

Can one man’s soul rip through time to a different era…survive a plane crash…and mitigate a broken man’s rage in time to save his own nation from total destruction?

Next up a fantasy by Suzanna Linton:

Join an amazing adventure about love, loss, and the fate of kingdoms.

As a slave, Clara’s life extends no further than the castle kitchens and their garden. However, she carries within herself a precious gift: the ability to see the future.

When a vision prompts her to prevent a murder, Clara is shoved not only into the intrigues of the nobility but also into a civil war. As events unfold, she begins to unearth chilling secrets about the war and her supposed friends.

Driven to learn the truth, Clara embarks on a journey that takes her from her beloved mountains to the very Capital itself, Bertrand. There, she is confronted by an evil as old as the mountains–and it’s using her anger and prejudices against her. If she is not careful, not only will the entire nation be lost, but Clara’s own soul as well.

And now another freebie, this one from Story Origin:

When Ariel’s friends convince her to go out for a ladies night with them, she doesn’t realize her whole life is about to change. She meets Blake, a handsome enigmatic man hiding a big secret. That’s alright, because she has some secrets of her own she has no intention of sharing. The problems start when the secrets begin to come out and their lives become hopelessly entangled. Their relationship brings Ariel the attention she has hidden from for years and exposes her to an evil she never believed was real.

Will the secrets revealed, tear them apart? Or will they discover a love that will stand the test of time? Will Blake’s ex-girlfriend cause him to regret meeting Ariel? Or will the men who chase Ariel, catch her, taking her from him forever?

Visions of the past forge second chances for the future.

Silas founded the Ashen Hawks out of anger towards a country that failed him and his younger sister, Sarra. The thieves he recruited in Helgath’s capital became his family and the guild escalated from petty thieves to planning a heist of Veralian’s treasury. Before undertaking the risky endeavor, he needs to eliminate the new tool Helgath has been utilizing to see the past and facilitate their arrests.

Locked in a room in the basement of a military barracks, Lucca uses trinkets to see glimpses of the past. After receiving little kindness during a cruel upbringing, her visions, fueled by her Art, grant her the only escape she’s known. When an emotionally damaged thief gives her an opportunity to start over, she sets her focus on saving him from a danger neither of them understand.

When the truth of Helgath’s secrets is revealed, the Hawks could be destroyed or rise above and become the country’s most notorious guild.

The world is changing . . . . . . and no one sees the danger. However, one man – accidentally imbued with extraordinary powers – could be the answer to it all.

As visions compel him on a journey involving the legendary Excalibur and The Lady of the Lake, Arthur finds himself in England. The irresistible call brings him to the famous London Institute of Psychic Research, where he meets Ruth.

The feisty, red-headed doctor wants nothing to do with the arrogant American, but her boss and the Commander of MI-6 have other plans. Believing the beautiful scientist is the key to controlling and weaponizing Arthur’s abilities, they force the pair to work together.

Ruth has no choice but to tag along, finding it increasingly difficult to fight her growing attraction for Arthur. However, when a camping trip along Lake George suddenly turns into a military expedition, the doctor realizes the precarious predicament she’s in. And her unwanted partner isn’t the only source of concern.

There are more secrets hidden beneath the dark waters than anyone imagined. And, strangely, unknown forces are causing Arthur’s senses to go wonky. He’s losing control.

Will he be able to recover his powers and prevent WWIII? Find out in The Secret of Excalibur, FREE on Story Origin.

It’s weird how every woman reacts differently. How each pregnancy differs.

Mine is definitely unique.

My sense of smell became stronger, picking up the faintest odors, and my stomach was in constant turmoil. Those were the first signs.

And then I started eating. And eating. If I don’t, I get a migraine and people’s faces become blurry. Electronics seem to malfunction in my presence. And the nightmares—they don’t stop.

Something is changing my body.

Something that should have never happened.

Something that my husband and I had prevented from happening.

Something people say is miraculous.

The bigger I get, the more frequently I encounter people who become possessed. And the more often I wind up questioning if I am carrying a miracle baby.

The closer I get to the due date, the more I love this child and the more confident I am that I will protect my baby from anything.

Even its fate.

Fiction Friday

Happy Friday folks. Welcome to another Fiction Friday. Today I have a freebie for you: a romance from Rachael Perez.

Do you wanna know a secret?

I’m a terrible, rotten human being. The thing is, my great grandfather and his best friend had a dream. Then their sons had the same dream. And then their sons….you get the drift.

What was this dream? To strengthen and solidify the bonds of their long lasting friendship with the sanctity of marriage. This wasn’t possible for several generations because neither the Crane family nor the Black family had a female child. Until me. And Alicia. My planned marriage to James Crane was the talk of the Town. Every single female was envious of me. Many would have killed to be in my position. My husband to be was rich, easy on the eyes and a complete gentleman. The best part of this arranged marriage was, James and I were already madly in love.

Whatever could go wrong with such a fairytale love story? Everything.

It turned out that I was also the dumbest person in the world. I was provoked. That’s my only excuse for doing what I did. Now I’m caught in a web of my own making. Instead of uniting our two families just like my great-grandfather wanted, I was on track to turn our families into bitter, feuding enemies.
