Nothing can break the stranglehold the gods of Order have on the world . . . except a roll of the dice.
An irresistible longing drags young Galen to an ancient vault where, long ago, the gods of Order locked Chaos away. Chaos promises power to the one destined to liberate it, but Galen’s dreams warn of dark consequences.
He isn’t the only one racing to the vault, however. Horace, the bully who lives to torment Galen, is determined to unleash Chaos–and he might know how to do it.
Galen’s imagination always got him into trouble, but now it may be the only thing that can prevent Horace from unraveling the world.
“This is no ordinary sword and sorcery story. This is what fantasy fiction should be. [Glen Dahlgren is a] novelist who I think will become more widely known as his skill is appreciated.” –Piers Anthony. New York Times best-selling author of Xanth
“Magic could be the very death of you…or it could be what saves the world.”
In the Kingdom of Virgo, witches and wizards have lived peacefully for thousands of years. On the other side of the Dark Forest resides the Land of Terran. The humans of Terran treat those from Virgo as second-class citizens, disgracing and trapping them at every turn. After centuries of tension, a silent war is finally brewing, and the timing couldn’t be worse for Princess Azure. This young witch will soon be crowned queen of the Kingdom of Virgo.
In the Dark Forest, a powerful potion-maker has been murdered. He was the key to ending the war.
Charmsgood was the only wizard who could stop a deadly virus that suddenly plagues Virgo. He also could have fixed the devastation the people from Terran had done to the forest. Now he is gone.
Azure must protect her people. Mend the Dark Forest. Create alliances with savage beasts. No biggie, right?
This complete digital box set contains seven exciting and enchanting adventures.
House of Enchanted: Just as the war with the humans is brewing, Azure is set to be crowned the new queen of Virgo. But on coronation day everything changes. Princess Azure isn’t who she thought she was and that’s a big freaking problem.
Dark Forest: Azure suddenly finds herself a prisoner of Terran. She must escape and locate her mother’s soul stone. The virus that stole the queen’s magic is going after her very life, and the soul stone is her only hope.
Mountain of Truth: Azure and her ragtag crew set off for the Mountain of Truth in hopes of locating Mage Lenore, the oldest witch alive. They soon learn the problem isn’t finding the old witch. It’s surviving each other on the mountain.
Land of Terran: A betrayal sends Azure on yet another adventure. She must get back the Book of Branches in order to find the rogue dryads. They are the key to healing the Dark Forest.
New Egypt: Queen Azure sets off on a world tour of Oriceran, thinking she’ll strengthen relations with neighboring kingdoms. On her first stop in New Egypt she finds something chilling.
Lancothy: New Egypt is being overrun by vampires. Knowing her options are limited, Azure sets off for the kingdom of Lancothy, where bats are known to reside. She must get to them before the vampires do. Bats are deadly to magic.
Virgo: With Lancothy in ruins, Azure and the gang help the wereanimals find new homes. Meanwhile, the vampires are planning a merciless attack on Virgo. Azure’s homecoming is marked by blood, tragedy and a great loss.
*NOTE: There’s cursing in this series because these witches and wizards are just rude like that. If cursing is a problem, then this might not be for you.

Is it too much to ask that a managed care facility refund a year’s advance payment when your grandfather dies before he can move in? Frank Johnson doesn’t think so, which is why the thirty-three-year-old now lives in a nursing home, locked in a chess match feud with management that doesn’t occupy nearly enough of his time.
When foster kid Elroy is thrust into his life, Frank decides to turn this forced relationship to his advantage – launching a string of absurd decisions, inappropriate behaviors and unexpected glimpses of tenderness that ultimately turn a New Jersey suburb upside down. A laugh-out-loud celebration of bad choices for good causes, Managed Care is an offbeat story about three misfits on the social fringes of suburbia and their ridiculous campaign to introduce an unfiltered version of intimacy to their stale, impersonal community. Because, according to Frank, it’s probably what Jesus would have wanted.
Lisa is a sixteen-year-old girl who lives in Silvertree, a town where an illegal medical experiment was conducted many years ago by a man named Peterson. Lisa’s parents are drifting apart: her father works long hours as a doctor, and her mother is stuck in the past. A dying woman arrives at Lisa’s house and demands to be treated with the drug Peterson invented. Lisa expects her father to refuse, but he agrees, and Lisa’s whole life is turned upside down. When an inquisitive stranger appears in Silvertree and starts asking questions, Lisa realizes her family is in danger. Desperate to protect her father, she finds herself keeping secrets from everyone except the boy of her dreams—but can he be trusted?
This is the story about a girl who lost both her legs in early childhood due to a tragedy. Despite this and other challenges in her life, not only does her spirit remain unbroken, but she also stubbornly moves towards her goals. The human feelings inherent in healthy people are not alien to her. And love is no exception. She secretly falls in love with a young man, but with pain in her heart, she convinces herself that she cannot count on his reciprocity. However, not everything is as simple as she thinks.
Aubree Walker, the perfect girl most likely to succeed, is sure there’s only one person who knows what she did
Booker Outlaw, one of the three Outlaw brothers–all identical, all gorgeous, all from the wrong side of the tracks, and all pure bad boys. He was always the unpredictable one, the one who would be brash enough to make it big self-publishing horror novels on the internet. He promised never to tell, but everyone knows you can never trust an Outlaw.
Then a year later, in the middle of the night, she receives a phone call at Tulane. Her aunt, who took her in after her mother’s death, is in a coma under suspicious circumstances. Now she has to face that one person who knows all about what she did that summer–sexy Booker.
Returning to Hope Parish to be with her aunt, stirs up all those ugly memories. When Aubree starts getting threats, she can’t help but wonder if what she did last summer was tied to her aunt’s “accident.”Afraid, she turns to the only person who knows the truth and Booker doesn’t hesitate to offer his broad shoulder for her to lean on. But Booker has a secret of his own that could crush their fledgling relationship.
As the hot, sultry summer days move on, she finds that even a perfectly smart girl can lose her heart to a perfectly bad boy. What is she going to do when someone starts asking questions Aubree doesn’t want to answer? She’s knee deep into a terribly dangerous, wholly life changing, who-can-she-really-depend-on perfect mess.
