The Chronicle Gate: vol. 1 Ethereal (Bargain Read)

A kid discovers adventure and magic on a new planet!


What if you ended up on a planet. . .and had no idea how you got there?

The Elouse are creatures who live on the planet Ethereal. When they find a human child lost and alone, they take him in and care for him. Sinya, the human child, struggles to remember anything about how he got to Ethereal. As Jasper, the Elousen father, searches for answers, Sinya’s new mother Ellen and her daughters Taylinn and Avigale help him adjust to life on their planet.
Taylinn’s dad is going on a secret mission aboard a space ship. Taylinn overhears that the mission is really “to save his family from him?” Could he mean Sinya? Sinya starts seeing Mer-Dragons, a made-up tale told to him by Avigale and Taylinn but this Mer-Dragon talks to a being known as “Malic,” one that means danger for Jasper and the family. But no one will believe Sinya when he tried to warn them of the danger. When Taylinn finally sees the truth of the danger for herself, she tries to alert her friends, but just like Sinya, no one will believe her, including her mother. Now in order for Sinya to get back home, these unlikely pair must team up to save Jasper, and his family from the coming danger of Mer-Dragons!

The Last Lumenian

Grand Prize Winner for the CIBA 2022 CYGNUS Award for Science Fiction

MOST PRINCESSES NEED SAVING. THIS ONE WILL SAVE YOU.
She is a rebel. Lilla is fighting for the refugees’s freedom from oppression. The king, her father, lost touch with reality ever since Lilla’s mother died. Now everyone else is paying the price.

The arrival of Callum, a powerful Teryn general, complicates Lilla’s life. His presence leads to conflicted feelings and friction with Arrov, a handsome pilot and fellow rebel.

Her life is not what she imagined it to be. Not by far. Meddling gods, love interests and sudden magical abilities have no room in Lilla’s world, but that has become her new reality. No matter how hard she pushes them away, it’s too late. They all seek to control her anyway.

Now the Era War between two ruling archgods forces Lilla to act: accept who she really is magic and all; find true love; fulfill her destiny by defeating the Archgod of Chaos and Destruction before He finds her. The Last Lumenian.

Meet S.G. Blaise

S.G. was born in a faraway land of castles, monarchies and fallen dictatorships aka Hungary. Hollywood movies were largely forbidden under Soviet oppression during her childhood, but her dad smuggled them anyway, risking his life so that his children could experience the magic and hope inherent in those stories.

She ended up in sunny California, where she is living her dream—writing stories and annoying family members.

Light My Pyre

EVERWOOD FALLS… a small supernatural community tucked up in the Colorado Rockies where witches, werewolves and vampires can live without fear of discovery, and those with curses they can’t control are sent to keep the existence of magic from being revealed to Mundanes. As a prince of the fae High Court, Asher Heath has always been caught between two worlds—the kingdom of faerie where his fire magic is unparalleled and the human realm where he works as a firefighter. But two months ago, he lost control of a blaze his fae magic was supposed to contain, with tragic results. With his magic poisoned by a demon curse, he can’t risk getting close to anyone… including Gwyn, the fierce and beautiful dragon shifter he encounters out in a thunderstorm in the woods. But trouble has followed Asher to Everwood Falls. An arsonist is setting fires around town using demon magic to possess their victims—and their targets get bigger every time. Gwyneth Drake doesn’t need a prince to save her. She shifts into a twenty-foot fire-breathing dragon who can fight her own battles. A fierce advocate for the dragon community, she was forced into hiding when an ex tried to sear her dragon from the skies. Now dragon blood has been found at one of the arson sites and she and Asher will have to work together to stop the arsonist before they strike again. Someone from Gwyn’s past may have followed her to Everwood Falls, and they’re too close to the case for comfort… With a herd of enchanted elk, carnivorous spruce trees, and sentient pumpkins that stalk the local landscaping, Everwood Falls is a quirky mountain town where scales and fur mean found family.

Magic Below Paris Complete Series Boxed Set (Books 1 – 8)

After surviving a shadow monster ambush, Marsh must get back to civilization, keep two kids alive, and make a delivery.

Get the complete bestselling series – all 8 books – in one GIANT boxed set!

Trading Into Shadow, Book 1:

But, with shadow monsters and raiders closing the trade routes, she’s out of a job, and lost beneath the ruins of one of the greatest cities of the world. She doesn’t need a deserted farm to complicate things… or a parentless pup… or to be hunted by a hoshkat. What she needs is to find a way home… through the dark… but the predators are out in force, and home is a very long way away.

Can she discover what happened at Leon’s Deep, in time to stop it from happening again? Or did she escape the ambush, only to see the rest of her world fall to the ones behind it?

Trading Into Darkness, Book 2:

A face from the past, an attempted theft, and a death threat: Just what every girl needs to make a bad day better.

Everyone has the ability to do magic, but not everyone can… Marsh knows the saying well.

What she doesn’t expect is that there are some forms of magic she just can’t master.

With the fate of the Four Caverns hanging in the balance, and raiders closing on the monastery, Marsh thinks the last thing she needs is to discover she can’t re-light the trail glows.

In fact, the last thing she needs is a violent visitor from the past and the promise that her refuge will fall.

Haunted by the warning, she and the shadow mages must clear the trade route to Ruins Hall and establish a fighting force to protect the Four Caverns, a task easier said than done.

Can she make it through the tunnels alive and discover what links her failed delivery to the raiders?

One courier, one kat, two kids and a shadow mage not so alone in the dark.

Trading Close to Light, Book 3:

In Marsh’s world the monsters are real and shadows can be used as weapons.

Anyone can call the magic, but the magic they can wield is never guaranteed. Some call shadows, and some shape the stone and earth around them, while others heal or walk through minds.

Marsh can bring the lightning, draw poison from wounds and become one with the dark, but the idea of seeing her uncle and cousins, again, leaves her cold.

They’re the only family she has, and they don’t even know she survived.

The trade route between Ruins Hall and Kerrenin’s Ledge is crawling with raiders and shadow monsters, but dealing with them seems a cakewalk in comparison, and seeing her family, again, isn’t the only challenge that lies ahead.

Together with Roeglin and the kat, Marsh must help Kerrenin’s Ledge develop a force to protect itself and the trade routes around it, and its Council has a small favor to ask.

Can Marsh survive a family reunion, chase down a traitorous boss, and have another township join their fight against the raiders?

The boxed set also includes:
Trading By Firelight, Book 4
Trading By Shroomlight, Book 5
Trading Into Daylight, Book 6
Trading By Stormlight, Book 7
Trading to the Deeps, Book 8

Join Marsh and Roeglin as they strengthen alliances and dig deep for what might just be the fight of their lives.

The Adventures of Jupiter Dave

*A Short Novel/Novella for ages 12 to 99
*A fun, quick read
*A fantasy adventure with heart

Synopsis
It started out like any other day at Valley View Middle School. Dave Jupiter, simply known as Jupiter to his friends, was ditching class and trashing the halls with his partner in crime, Eddie Larone. But after the school custodian catches a glimpse of the havoc, this otherwise normal day takes a serious turn.

Dave is thrown into the school dumpster, but instead of hitting the trash at the bottom, he enters a mysterious portal and falls through endless darkness. When he finally lands on solid ground, Dave finds himself a prisoner of the Kingdom of the Centaurs, the place where all “bad” middle schoolers go and stay… forever.

Can Dave realize the error of his ways? Can he learn to be grateful for what he once had? And most importantly, can he escape the grip of the malevolent centaurs and return home for a second chance? Only time will tell. Until then, these ominous words echo through his mind:

“Welcome to the Kingdom of the Centaurs,
Where the bad middle schoolers go.
You were reckless, selfish and destructive,
Now you’ll pay for what you owe…”
