The Outcast Royal Complete Series Boxed Set

A fell-handed warrior treads a bloody road across the sea from the bloody adventures of Skharr DeathEater.

Her allies face intrigue and treachery in the world above and the city teeters on the brink of destruction.

Mere mortals vie with cunning foes and ancient terrors for the chance to see another day in a world both brutal and beautiful.

Is Ax-Wed enough to turn the tide or will she fall to the black maw of primeval power?

World’s First Wizard Complete Series Boxed Set

At what cost victory?

Milo Volkohne, orphan, criminal, conscript, and unwilling warlock could tell you but you might not like the answer.

It is 1936 and the Great War still rages on, with no armistice in 1918 when the Russian Empire crumbled in the fire and blood of stillborn revolution.

The hellish no man’s land has spread like a blight over Europe as grim, unyielding leaders promise a resolve of iron and no mercy, no peace, no hope.

It would take a miracle to save humanity, but as Milo would tell you: be careful what you wish for.

Plunging into a world of sorcery, treachery, and madness the world’s first wizard will bargain with monsters, human or otherwise, fight for his life, and dare to hope that he’s selling his soul for something worthwhile.

But is any price too high to end the War to end all Wars?

Included in this boxed set:

  1. Witchmarked
  2. Sorcerybound
  3. Wizardborn

Dwarvish Dirty Dozen – First Three Books

War is a messy business and anyone who claims otherwise is trying to sell you something.

The dwarvish legions, the Holt’Dwan, are familiar with this but these are strange times.

The dead are rising from the earth in the freshly settled Ysgand Vale and the war just got a lot messier.

So an old custom was resurrected and the Bad Badgers were formed.

Condemned and disowned, the Badgers have nothing to lose and everything to prove. But in a world where the dead don’t stay dead and victory will cost you everything, what can be done?

A lot, if one has the will and stomach for it.

Included in this boxed set:

  1. Mud War
  2. Dirt Line
  3. Dust Song

Devastated by his father’s sudden death, eight-year-old Ricky begins to see things—a ghostly silhouette in his bedroom window, a gruesome train accident involving four local teenagers, a terrorist attack that won’t occur for another twenty-five years. After a traumatic incident at a New England summer camp, the visions become more frequent, more vivid, and more disturbing. A mysterious voice assures him everything will be okay if he crosses the “threshold.” But just what is the threshold? And what lies beyond?

A tale of hope, faith, courage, and profound self-discovery, A Hero Dreams is a work of inspirational fiction that takes the reader on an epic journey along the furthermost frontiers of human consciousness, through the very darkest of nights, and into a miraculous realm where anything is possible.
