Rivers Run Red

In the Nine Kingdoms, lords and churches dance to a song of war and murder. But unknown to the players, the song is changing. The Tainted One has returned; harbinger of a cycle of destruction as old as humankind itself. A kingdom is on the verge of collapse; humankind is on the fringes of annihilation – but the lords and ladies, the holy men and the apostates, the great and the small; all just keep spinning with the music.

Nihm is a young woman, living peacefully on the edges of the wilds. But as the hordes descend upon the Nine Kingdoms she finds herself at its forefront, in a race for survival. Where truths will be revealed and her world will change, challenging who and what she is.

Renco is a mute, raised by an outcast from an Ancient Order. His master hones his mind and body to a fine edge. But to what purpose?

Join an epic fantasy and follow Nihm and Renco as their journey unfolds. Can two people change the fate of a world?

An enthralling High Fantasy adventure that will engage your heart and mind and leave you wanting more. Great for readers of JRR Tolkien, Raymond Feist, Robert Jordan and GRR Martin.

Meet A D Green

Hi, AD here,

I’m a writer of epic fantasy and I love it. It means I spend a lot of time in my head (probably too much if I’m honest) not only imagining my world but living the stories.

It’s pretty cool. I get to be everything; good and evil and all those fuzzy grey in-betweens, I cast magic, die heroically, plan epic battles, mess with and experience every emotion you can imagine. Get to be moral and immoral, do stupid things for the right reason and succeed when doing the wrong thing but hey, sometimes life is like that. Right?

Oh, and I get to make up new religions, races, people and magic systems that feel natural. I map build, create a history, plant a few hidden eggs along the way and plot the inevitable twist no one saw coming.

But apart from that – it is a grind….a b&llache of teeth grinding, rehashing, reviewing, rewriting, timelining and continuity checking. I love it all.
I hope that you will try my work and even more that you enjoy it. I would love for you to leave this mundane world behind for a few hours and visit mine.

You can find me on my website (yeah dude/dudess – I have a frikin website!). You can also find me on twitter @adgreenauthor and something similar on Facebook or whatever it is called now.

Don’t Kill Me Because I’m Beautiful

Brooklyn Petitjean is young, hot, rich, and hunted in post-pandemic Los Angeles, 2023, a city that’s cracking with tension, tent cities, roving Neo-Nazis, and a nasty gang of unemployed salesgirls.

Reader’s Favorite Book Reviews ***** 
“What an excellent read for psychological thriller fans who are also curious about what goes on behind the beautiful faces and places, the glitz, gloom, and glamour of Hollywood… Readers follow Brooklyn’s thoughts and movements with increasing tension, and when she comes face to face with the real monsters of her childhood, she can barely breathe, and neither can we!… The complex plot is thoroughly engaging and full of twists.”

The Killing of the Cherrywood MP

The Killing of the Cherrywood MP is the brilliant second book in the lauded Karen Andersen political thriller series by Louise Burfitt-Dons. In this fast-paced and gripping novel P I Andersen is once again immersed in the world of radical extremism in Britain and about to learn it’s as complicated as it’s deadly. 

“‘Taut, hardboiled, detailed and funny. This is thriller excellence!’ “Charlie Flowers

Jihadi brides return from Syria and deradicalised terrorists are released from prison. In reaction extremist right-wing groups proliferate across Europe. The Labour MP for Cherrywood is found murdered and police look for a lone wolf with a personal vendetta against ISIS.

P I Karen Andersen believes it’s not that simple. From the roulette tables of the Ritz to the respectable suburbs of Mainz, she searches for the truth. Does the home to one of Germany’s violent neo-Fascist cells hold the vital clue, or does it lie hidden in the leafy English countryside?

The Missing Activist

“Intense and teasing”Vine Voice
“Authentic and gripping political thriller”The Conservative Woman

Post-Referendum Britain and a country on high alert for terrorist attacks.
When a young political activist disappears in London, an off-the-wall PI Karen Andersen is put on the case. She uncovers secrets of a party system which prizes loyalty above truth, a serial killer and a female Jihadi plotting deadly revenge on the British Government.

“A behind-the-scenes twisty political thriller and bullying story of poignancy and compassion. The author has had experience of both having been a national candidate during the 2015 General Election as well as the founder of an anti-bullying charity during the scandal which rocked the Tories after the tragic death of a young activist later that year.” LBC

If you were a fan of Lisbeth Salander, you will love her British counterpart Karen Andersen.

Welcome to Halcyon: Dead Mawl #1

cover

Dead Mawl (n.): A hell-mouth with a food court.

Reader Reviews:

“A fantastic yarn that had me interested from the first word.”

“This page-turner is a great introduction to a world in which I want to spend more time!”

“Beyond impressive for a debut!”

Book Summary:
Sixteen-year-old Cari Hembert had the unfortunate luck of being born in Halcyon, Nevada, a once-prosperous mining town that lost everything eight years ago when the silver ran out. Now the only place that doesn’t totally suck is the Edensgate Shopping Center, a monstrous half-abandoned mall on the edge of the city. And after today, when the Suttermill Department Store closes, it will be even emptier.

As Suttermill’s most loyal (ie last) cashier, Cari expects a routine and uneventful day behind the register. But when she and movie theater employee/wannabe-anarchist Drexel “Rex” Ranganathan are accidentally locked in Edensgate overnight, they discover something far more horrifying than the decline of brick-and mortar-retail.

They’ve survived bad bosses, cranky customers and crap salaries. But will they survive the night shift?

Welcome to Halcyon is the first book in the Dead Mawl novella series. Books 2 and 3 are also available on Amazon (ebook only, paperback coming soon).
