When Shadows Fall (The First Book of the Small Gods)

An ancient prophecy threatens the return of the Small Gods to seek revenge on those who banished them a thousand years before. According to its words, only one person can stop them: the firstborn child of the rightful king. But King Erral usurped the throne decades past.

For whom are the words intended?

When the prince and princess discover the long-forgotten scroll, Teryk is convinced he is the savior of the kingdom and determines to fulfill his destiny. His sister is not so sure. If he is the chosen one, why is it only Danya can read the words inscribed on the parchment? And what of the other elements of the prophecy: the Barren Mother, the Living Statue, and the Man from Across the Sea? None of them can possibly exist.

Teryk strikes out on his own to become the hero he is meant to be and prove his worth to his father once and for all. His desperate sister and the kingdom’s one-armed champion give chase, but none of them realize the evil they’ve set in motion.

The prince wants to save the kingdom. The princess wants to save her brother. But in a fight against the gods, who will save them all?

The Elements of the Crown

She wasn’t supposed to become so powerful.
She wasn’t even supposed to survive.

In an empire divided into three rings, Talise is from the lowliest and most dangerous outer ring. To escape that life, she just has to do three things.

1) Attend an elite academy for manipulating the elements of water, air, earth, and fire.
2) Become the most powerful student in her year.
3) Prove her magic is the best in a competition in front of the emperor himself.

Everything goes according to plan until a handsome and rich young man shows up with just as much skill as her.

She has to win. She has to hate him.

But when the competition falls apart, the emperor forces them to work together instead. Their growing attraction only distracts them from dark truths that the empire has hidden for too long.

Meet A D Green

Hi, I’m A D Green an epic fantasy novelist.

My debut novel Rivers Run Red is the first in The Morhudrim Cycle (2019). A Sword and Sorcery fantasy saga. The second book in the series Shadows Fall (2020) was released on 15th October 2020.

I grew up in Auckland, New Zealand but have been living in York, England for the past twenty years with my beautiful, gorgeous, stubborn, patient wife, three kids and a shorky named Lottie.

I am an avid fantasy and science-fiction reader since I can remember, hooked by Tolkien’s Hobbit and Lord of the Rings and with the imagination of David Eddings, or maybe it was the other way around.

Meet Douglas R. Brown

Douglas R. Brown runs into burning buildings for a living.
As a career firefighter in Columbus, Ohio, he rediscovered his love of writing as a cathartic way of dealing with the daily horrors of seeing people die.
After having four books published by a publishing company who ultimately closed their doors, he has since ventured out on his own.
And if risking his life, occasional soul-crushing book reviews, and being the father of a teen-aged boy isn’t enough of a beating, he’s also been learning jiujitsu for a few years. What the Hell is wrong with him? (The answer is probably Freudian of some kind.)
BTW, did he mention he’s been married since 1996. So, yeah, he’s pretty busy.

Strands of Existence 1: Island Girl

As an opportunist, Istrae yearns to get off her home island and visit Kerth, the City of Light and Abundance. Her preferred method of travel, however, didn’t include drowning. And she didn’t expect the city to be so dirty. Her memories are as broken as her body. She begins to piece them together with the help of a spirit bound to a statue and an ambitious army captain called Rime she enjoys teasing. While Rime guides Istrae in her new life, it becomes evident the rigid rules of society and the city’s Temple do not welcome those who seek to shake the established rules, which is something Istrae is incapable of resisting.

The *new linguistically revised* version of the novel. Island Girl is the first book in a fresh epic fantasy series Strands of Existence with tones of adventure and a splash of romance. A new world with its own laws, intuitive magic, and religion.


Meet Aino Lahteva

Aino was born in Helsinki, Finland, in the ’80s. She’s always loved stories of all sorts, but ever since her mother read her Tolkien’s LoTR when Aino was 5, she has loved fantasy. Overall, Aino is the slightly annoying artsy type who is often wrapped up in her own head. But she can be nice too, especially if you buy her a glass of whiskey. The only constant thing about her personality seems to be that it’s always shifting to the opposite. She doesn’t so much think about the story as she notes it down as it unfurls. Though several neighbors and bypassers might have spied her acting out dialogue and then talking to herself about the flaws. Her passions include shiny things, silliness, and oddly placed melancholy and pathos.
