Spark of Defiance
Games of Fire Trilogy Book 1
by Autumn M. Birt
Genre: Epic Fantasy
352 pages

Six months after a tragic war, the world of Myrrah has found peace.

But many of the heroes have not.

Wandering to avoid memories of lost friends and past actions, Zhao reluctantly returns home to fulfill a promise to his sister. And to proclaim to the elders of his people that their treatment of Air Elementals is wrong. His homecoming is met with hostility but not for the reason he expects. It is far worse.

To protect his gifted niece from a life of hardship and subjugation like the one he endured, Zhao must rescue his sister. Even if she doesn’t wish it. Quickly caught once again in events greater than he can handle alone, Zhao struggles to prevent a personal conflict from erupting into a larger battle. But friends are distant, and more than a few are wrestling with new problems of their own.

Welcome BACK to the world of Myrrah full of elemental magic and epic fantasy adventure!

A new trilogy begins in Games of Fire with book 1, Spark of Defiance.

Gates of Fire and Earth
Games of Fire Trilogy Book 2
415 pages

Success will destroy elemental magic.

Failure condemns this world and the next.

Named Guardian of the Elemental Spheres, Lavinia seeks the lost gates to the spirit realm and their ancient guardians. But some of the guardians have left their duties and those that have stayed may prove as dangerous as her enemy, whose wrath threatens the world. To end an ancient punishment inflicted on them by the Goddess for their role in a forgotten war, the Ashanti will conquer this world and that of spirit to gain power over death.

Lavinia must close the gates to stop the Ashanti, even though by doing so she risks ending all elemental powers.

And the act has consequences greater than the ancient guardians imagine.

But one gate has a new guardian as well as the old, and the last time he saw Lavinia, he tried to kill her before she stole his power. And he’s been seeking revenge

 Continue this epic fantasy journey begun in book 1 of the Games of Fire trilogy,

Spark of Defiance.  Friendships are tested as what is sacrificed is more than some are willing to give. Welcome back to the world of Myrrah and meet the Elementals of Fire, Earth, Water, Air, and Spirit who shape it. Pick up book 2 of the Games of Fire trilogy, the Gates of Fire & Earth, today!

A New Goddess
Games of Fire Trilogy Book 3

The time has come to end their punishment or the world.

For nearly destroying the world in an ancient war, the Ashanti were cursed by the Goddess Mhyrah with lifespans of less than a decade. To regain normal lives for his people, Beh’kana, the Ashanti King, will conquer death by gaining control of the source of all elemental magic: the spirit realm. Even if he must burn the world to do so. After all, he already killed his closest friend to gain the Ashanti throne.
 
But his defeat at the Earth Gate nearly cost him his life.
 
Lavinia did not seek to be named Guardian of the Spheres when she touched each to gain control of elemental power. But now that choice has propelled her to being the key to stop the Ashanti. She controls the gates that allow magic into the world. And she must close them or the Ashanti will cross into the spirit realm and gain power beyond imagination, enough to enslave or destroy the world they once sought to rule.
 
But with the closure of each gate, an elemental power is lost.
 
Only two gates remain open. Magic is faint. Just when the fight grows the most desperate. To win needed help, Lavinia has promised a man who once tried to kill her best friend that she would open the gates and restore magic again.
 
It might give them the power to fight the Ashanti or it will give their enemy the world.
 
Discover the end to the epic fantasy journey begun in book 1 of the Games of Fire trilogy, Spark of Defiance, and continued through book 2, Gates of Fire & Earth. The struggle for the power over life and death as well as all the elements comes to a dramatic conclusion. Can a cruel ancient punishment be ended without destroying magic or the world? Welcome
back to the world of Myrrah and meet the Elementals of Fire, Earth, Water, Air, and Spirit who shape it. Pick up book 3 of the Games of Fire trilogy, A New Goddess, today!

#BookTour…A Meddle of Wizards…#BookBoost #Fantasy #Giveaway @SDSXXTours @a_rushe

A MEDDLE OF WIZARDS
by Alexandra Rushe
Genre: Fantasy
Pub Date: 1/9/2018

Welcome to Tandara, where gods are fickle, nightmares are real, and trolls make excellent bakers…

Raine Stewart is convinced she’ll die young and alone in Alabama, the victim of a chronic, mysterious illness. Until a man in a shabby cloak steps out of her mirror and demands her help to defeat a bloodthirsty wizard.Raine shrugs it off as a hallucination—just one more insult from her failing body—and orders her intruder to take a hike. But the handsome figment of her imagination won’t take no for an answer, and kidnaps her anyway, launching her into a world of utmost danger—and urgent purpose.Ruled by unpredictable gods and unstable nations, Tandara is a land of shapeshifters and weather-workers, queens and legends. Ravenous monsters and greedy bounty hunters patrol unforgiving mountains. Riverboats pulled by sea-cattle trade down broad waterways. And creatures of nightmare stalk Raine herself, vicious in the pursuit of her blood.But Raine isn’t helpless or alone.

She’s part of a band as resourceful as it is odd: a mage-shy warrior, a tattered wizard, a tenderhearted giant, and a prickly troll sorceress. Her new friends swear she has powers of her own. If she can stay under their protection, she might just live long enough to find out . . .

 

Alexandra Rushe was born in South Alabama, and grew up climbing trees, searching for sprites and fairies in the nearby woods, and dreaming of other worlds. The daughter of an English teacher and a small-town judge, Rushe developed a love of reading early on, and haunted the school and local libraries, devouring fairy tales, myths, and tales of adventure. In the seventh grade, she stumbled across a worn copy of The Hobbit, and was forever changed. She loves fantasy and paranormal, but only between the pages of a book—the flying monkeys in The Wizard of Oz give her the creeps, and she eschews horror movies. A psychic friend once proclaimed the linen closet in Rushe’s bedroom a portal to another dimension, and she hasn’t slept well since. Rushe is a world-class chicken.

For hundreds of years, the gates of Tarragon have been sealed from the outside. Prophecy speaks of the day the last Key Keeper will return and wake the dragons from their spell-cast slumber, returning them to their rightful home.  Seeking to fulfill her father’s dying wish, Anwen Porter travels to the Drakonii Mountains where she meets Tyler, a mysterious local with a secret. With his help, she learns more about her clouded past and her own abilities. But when Courtney, a lovesick mage, tries to insert herself into their plans, things begin to go horribly wrong.  
 
With death threatening at every turn, Anwen must learn to rely on her newfound friends to survive. But how can she unravel the mystery of her heritage when everything is trying to kill her?

 

Snippet:

‘The Mountains rise majestically all around,’” he began to quote. “‘The sapphire blue waters of Lake Wyvern shimmer across the way, keeping sentinel over the Sacred Island.’”Anwen almost stopped breathing, refusing to move any closer as she stood in shock. “How did you know that,” she breathed. “No one could know that. No one.” Unless he’d somehow snuck into her room while she wasn’t looking and read her great grandmother’s diary. 

Tyler looked at her as he dropped her hand, one foot still in the boat, sensing her confusion and fear. “‘Across the shore. Down the Consecrated Hall. Past the tombs of the immortals, lies the gateway to the Stone City, home to those who dwell with us. And further still, the Gates of Eternity that lead to Tarragon, home of all dragonkind,’ from A History of the Keepers.”

“The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.”
Deadline
(Blood Trails Series, Bk 1)
By Jennifer Blackstream
 

Blurb: 

As a witch with a dark past, Shade Renard knows the Otherworld isn’t always successful at policing itself. Humans don’t believe in magic anymore, and their ignorance renders them easy prey. So when an FBI contact hires her to consult on a possible haunting in a missing persons case, Shade seizes the opportunity to see justice done.

Her case takes an unexpected turn when an undead crime lord shows up on her doorstep. A bold thief stole the vampire’s little black book of secrets—and he’ll pay a lot more than an FBI consulting fee to get it back. To collect, Shade will have to confront a rogue sorceress, a vengeful wizard, and a lethally seductive fey, with only her wits, her growing magic, and a sarcastic pixie familiar.

Success means bringing a killer to justice and taking the first step to redemption. Failure means a war between humans and the Otherworld.

No pressure.

My instincts flared as I pulled into my driveway. The sun had set and it was dark, but the automatic light on my garage didn’t come on. I frowned.

“Did you disconnect the automatic light?”

Peasblossom curled against my neck, her wet dress adding to a sudden chill in the air inside the car. “No.”

Unease rolled down my spine. I murmured a spell, drawing a few circles in the air. “Lumen.” Three glowing balls of reddish light bloomed to life and hovered before me. I kept one over my head and sent the other two forward, illuminating my path to the front door. I didn’t open the garage door and pull in, but got out while I was still in the driveway, already preparing another spell as I climbed out of the driver’s seat.

“Revelare.” My power flowed in a wash of silver toward the house, probing for any foreign magic.

Nothing.

“Stay here,” I told Peasblossom. “If I don’t call for you, go to Mother Hazel and tell her everything that happened today.”

“But I won’t have anything to tell her unless I stay to see what happens,” Peasblossom hissed. “I’m not leaving you.”

“This might be nothing.” I kept my voice as low as possible. “The bulb may have burned out. Don’t be silly.”

“I’m not silly and I’m not stupid. You think there’s something bad inside. And a witch never ignores her gut.”

A lump rose in my throat, and I fought to swallow around it. “Please stay out here. I can’t bear the idea of anything happening to you.”

Peasblossom gave my ear a ferocious hug. “I’ll stay out here, but only as backup. I will never leave you.”

I waited for her to fly up and off my shoulder before straightening my spine. This was my house. My village. Whatever was here, whatever had violated my home, would be sorry. Power rose in my throat, feeding the spell I’d readied.

“Shade, look out!”

I whirled around and spat behind me. The spell hurtled through the air, and I had a split second to see a dark figure separate itself from the maple tree beside my driveway. The spell landed in the grass, the viscous blue fluid of the entanglement spell pooling in the tree’s shadow.

“Such attacks will not be necessary.”

A man spoke from beside me, smooth and masculine, voice heavy with an accent I hadn’t heard in a long time.

A very, very long time.

I turned, knowing I’d never call up another spell fast enough. I raised my hand anyway, needing to try, to go down fighting. A hand closed around my wrist, tight enough that I swore I heard my bones creak. I gritted my teeth and stared into the face of my visitor.

He was dressed in a suit that probably cost more than my car. Long white-blond hair brushed his shoulders and framed a pale face with sharp, graceful features. I couldn’t see what color his eyes were in this light, but it didn’t matter. I remembered his face.

He went by the name Anton Winters, majority shareholder of the Winters Group, a company that made the Forbes 500 list look like a gathering of struggling start-ups. There were whispers he had criminal connections, that he was former KGB. I knew the truth. And it was scarier.

Anton Winters had once been known by a different name.

Prince Kirill of Dacia.

A vampire.

 

About The Author
USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Blackstream is…odd. Putting aside the fact that she writes her own author bio in third person, she also sleeps with a stuffed My Little Pony that her grandmother bought her as a joke for her 23rd birthday, and she enjoys listening to Fraggle Rock soundtracks whether or not her children are in the car.Jennifer doesn’t have spare time, but she makes it a point to spend at least one night a week with her sibling binge-watching whatever show they’re currently plowing through (currently Numbers on Netflix), and she ferociously guards quality time with her son and daughter. She cooks when she has the sanity for it—adding garlic to the recipe whether it calls for it or not—and tries very hard not to let her arachnophobia keep her out of her basement on laundry day.  Jennifer’s influences include Terry Pratchett (for wit), Laurell K. Hamilton (for sexual tension), Jim Butcher (for roguish flair), and Kim Harrison (for mythos). She is currently writing the series of her heart and her dreams, the series that has been percolating in her brain for the last decade…Blood Trails. An Urban Fantasy Mystery series that will combine the classic whodunit spirit with a contemporary fantasy setting. Expect mystery, magic, and mayhem, with characters that will make you laugh, cry, and probably stare at the screen with your jaw hanging down to the floor. Well, that’s how they affect Jennifer anyway…

“We’re…in public.”

“We’re in a private section, Firefly.” He countered, lifting up to stare into my eyes. I lowered my eyes to his lips, licking my own. He lowered his head, reading to kiss me again when he flinched.

“Mother fucker.” He swore under his breath, turning his head. I gave him a confused look, following his gaze to see Elias chilling on the dock, his legs swinging back forth with a wide grin on his face.

“Hey, Mako. You forgot your sunscreen at home. I thought I’d come and bring it to you,” Elias called out, his grin only growing wider. He waved the unfamiliar tube in his hand.

“Sun…screen?” I blinked, my cheeks feeling hot.

He totally did that on purpose,” Lexi mumbled, sounding utterly disappointed.

Marcus groaned, his eyes glowing a bright blue.

I watched the waves near the doc sway back and forth until one large wave formed and crashed into Elias. I tried to hold the set of laughter that threatened to leave my throat, my shoulders beginning to shake as I watched Elias blink, spewing out a stream of water.

I lost it, laughing my head off at his drenched appearance, his gold locks stuck to his face.

“Marcus! Why did you…hehehehe…do that?” I asked, trying to calm the laughter assaulting me.

“Serves him right. Always interrupting me and shit.” He mumbled.

“I’m not cooking for you tonight,” Elias threatened.

#BookPromo…Kingdom of Haven Series…#BookBoost #Fantasy @SagesBlogTours

Kingdom of Haven Series

By Freddie Silva

Genre: Fantasy

 The Order of the Wolf: Kingdom of Haven Book 1

The Order of the Wolf is set in the Seven Kingdoms, where the rulers are greedy and mercenary companies known as the Free Orders are paid to settle their disputes.

As a member of The Order of the Wolf, Olaf never questioned his path until his mates were killed. What is a mercenary to do without his Order mates?

Wielding a death wish and his poleaxe, Olaf must confront haunting memories on a long journey to avenge the honor of his lost comrades and heal from his relentless grief.  Along the way, he will try to die in battle, fight old foes and new, meet the love of his life, and come face-to-face with the man he most fears.

Before he is finished, Olaf must stop hiding behind his axe and find a life for himself.

Who says a mid-life crisis has to be about fast cars?

Stenson Blues: The Kingdom of Haven Book 2

Olaf wasn’t sure when his luck went bad. Most said it was the day he fell and twisted his leg out of shape, but that was just the final straw on his unhappy slide from favor.  Even though he was a member of one of the most powerful families in the Seven Kingdoms, after the accident, he was relegated to herding pigs. 

Olaf had accepted his fate until his long-lost uncle and namesake suddenly appeared with a kingdom.  Olaf, as the closest living relative, is sent with the family delegation to persuade his uncle to share his good fortune.

To succeed, Olaf must overcome his own feelings of inadequacy, vie against his dirty-dealing cousin, and persuade his suspicious uncle that he can be trusted.  Along the way, he gets caught up in his uncle’s political schemes, and may even meet the love of his life.  In the end, can Olaf prevail, make his uncle proud, and change his own luck?     

The Eastern Factor: Kingdom of Haven Book 3

After being shattered by the death of his lady love, Olaf is sent east by his namesake Uncle to recover in the relative safety of the Eastern Confederation.  Even here, he cannot rest.  The Empire of Jewel is marching against his uncle’s fledgling Kingdom of Haven, and Olaf is tasked with finding a way to aid his uncle.

Suffering from his own internal demons of self-doubt and grief, he attacks his mission with as much gusto as he can manage, but has he learned from his previous mistakes?  In order to succeed, he must form odd alliances and thread the needle of daunting Eastern politics.  Has he learned enough to recognize friends from enemies, and, above all, keep his own dark impulses from destroying his efforts?

The fate of the Kingdom of Haven is depending upon his success.     

​Coming of age is tougher when you’re a Stenson.

CrossTown

Loren W Cooper

Genre: Fantasy/SF

Publisher: Red Hen Books

Date of Pub.: Nov 14, 2017

ISBN: 978-1939096029

Number of pages: 340

Word Count: 95000

Cover Artist: Red Hen Staff Artist

Tagline: CrossTown is the crossroads of possibility.

Book Description:

Zethus is a sorcerer―a self-described spiritual thug for hire. He makes his living in CrossTown, a place where the manyworld hypothesis of modern physics manifests itself, where possibilities and probabilities overlap.

Caught up in a web of intrigue as he investigates the death of his master, Corvinus, and pursued by agents that want to erase all knowledge of Corvinus’ work, Zethus discovers that the key to his master’s murder lies in the last project he had pursued before his death. The roots of this project lie deep in the past, at the origin of CrossTown’s fractured reality.

Once he understands the stakes, Zethus must make the dangerous journey to the cradle of history. The price he must pay to find the answers he seeks will threaten everything he holds dear―including his own humanity.

“Beware the road outside your front door, for it is all at once old friend and passing stranger.” –CrossTown

“A sorcerer explores the frontier of theoretical physics.” Publisher’s Weekly

BN     Amazon     Thrift Books     Wal-Mart     Target

Roads and streets run like veins and arteries through the beating heart of CrossTown.  Each runs through all manner of distant and not-so-distant possibilities. 

            There’s a theory in modern physics that posits a universe for every decision we make.  Each time we choose, right or left, high or low, vanilla or chocolate, we split into separate universes.  A vanilla me here, a chocolate me there, a rocky road with pistachio me somewhere else, and some poor lactose intolerant me further down the line.  The dominant me is my subjective reality.  In CrossTown, the probable mes collapse into the dominant wave, but all those wandering Ways continually wash other alternate lives, lives meant to be lived in CrossTown, up on its jagged shores.

The names of roads are choices; the turning and branching of roads are choices; roads are physical manifestations of their builders’ decisions…

            Everywhere, every place and every time where man or something like him has lived, roads run into one another, branch, disappear here and reappear over there as if they were quantum tunneling.  They run, meet, part, cross again, and form a bewildering Mandelbrot set of linked probabilities.

            Beware the road outside your front door, for it is both old friend and passing stranger.

       All those choices, all hooked together, comprise a vast sea of possibility.  A knowledgeable traveler can ride the currents in that sea to unimagined destinations…

            CrossTown is the crossroads of probability.

#BookTour…Soul Mirrors…#BookBoost #SciFi #Fantasy #Giveaway @lovingthebook

My love of storytelling tracesback to my step-mother, who spun wonderful fantasy stories when I was child. I finished my first novel at sixteen. That first attempt was terrible, but taught me quite a bit about story construction. Though I would start numerous other projects in the following years, I wouldn’t actually complete another book for another 21 years. 

I wasn’t idle in that time, though. I earned a degree in engineering, married the love of my life, worked as a semi- truck driver crisscrossing the country, moved from Texas to North Dakota and then came back home. 
 
It’s been a fun and interesting journey. I really enjoy engineering, but writing was my first passion, and I’m excited to share it with you.
 
I currently live in West Texas with my wife and our two adorable (but weird) cats.

“No one knows how human genetics evolved to create Mirrors. No one knows how the evidence of a criminal’s last horrendous act can be confirmed in a single gaze of a child’s silvered eyes. But just because science can’t explain something doesn’t mean it can’t be used, and this gift is simply too valuable to ignore. 

Twins Thomas and Ashley Ross have grown up knowing they would be used as Mirrors for the “good” of humanity. When their powers mature at age twelve, they are taken weekly to fulfill their role. By reliving the most heinous crimes from a perpetrators’ perspective, they alone can assure that no innocent people will be executed, and that the worst offenders are not set free due to lack of evidence.

Justice is not without cost, however. Taking on the memories of others is a destructive process, one that quickly consumes the children involved until most take their own lives. As despair threatens to drown Thomas and Ashley, a distant hope keeps them from succumbing: If they can make it to their eighteenth birthday, their contract with the government will be fulfilled. Changing views on the morality of their role threatens to tear them apart, but the twins struggle to cling to each other and try to construct a fragile life above the weekly flood of horrors.

As their work takes it toll, however, a new question emerges: does survival even matter when you’re already broken beyond repair?”

“A whole lifetime in seconds,” he said in a whisper. Ashley didn’t respond. “I saw everything. Lived everything. I thought I was . . .” He broke off, then, grimacing, said, “It’s clearer now, but for a while it felt like I was him. It felt like he had wiped away everything inside me. I thought I was going to be him.”

          Ashley finally moved. With a tired sob, she rolled over but didn’t bother sitting up. Those silver Mirror’s eyes watched him tearfully. She stared at him, meeting his shaded gaze for a long moment before finally nodding.

          “You could Reflect me,” she said. “I could see myself. Know that I’m not him.”

          Thomas exhaled sharply. “It would kill us.” That was one of the first things he remembered their parents explaining. He’d never even considered meeting Ashley’s eyes on purpose. The very thought sent a shudder down his spine.

          “I . . . I know.” Ashley let out a sob. “I don’t want to die. I just . . . it’s not fair. I just want to know who I am, Thomas. I want to scrub away Spencer; I want to see me. I’ve seen him, Thomas, and I don’t want to become him.”

          “You won’t.” The words were forceful, but Thomas felt hollow saying them.

          Idle dreams were no more than fleeting hope, but he had dared to dream about this conversation. Riding home, he had constructed an impossible scene. Meeting Ashley, she would smile and hug him, welcoming him back. Then she’d proceed to tell him that her Reflected was innocent, that he was good and kind, and that his arrest was a mistake. She’d act like she had this morning: excited and happy to have played her part.

          He usually liked ribbing Ashley for being stupidly optimistic, but he realized that today he’d fallen into the same trap. No one could endure what they had lived today and smile about it. For once, though, he wished she’d been right.

#BookBlast…Fire…#BookBoost #Fantasy @GoddessFish

GENRE: Fantasy

BLURB:

The thrilling conclusion to the Knights of Av’lor trilogy!

Trapped on Av’lor and left for dead by her betrayer, Kathryn’s unrelenting determination is the only thing that might overcome the invading Zahkrinon army.

With the portal destroyed and the Zahkrinon army fast approaching, Kathryn and Lanclor have no choice but to focus on the survival of the Knighthood before they can consider rescuing Rachel. Unexpected events threaten their victory and the combined Av’lorian and Earth forces struggle to survive as their numbers dwindle.

They find the Zahkrinon are more dangerous than they had ever imagined.

The momentum of her flight drove the sword completely into the back of the Zahkrinon’s neck along with her hands, up to her wrists. She felt pieces of bone cut through her gloves and she clenched her teeth from the pain. A dark wave of energy left the creature’s hands just after impact and drove into the dark elves instead of Hal’s group. Kathryn forced her spell through the blade and felt the Zahkrinon’s muscles tighten under her as it screeched in pain.

She clung to her sword for dear life as the Zahkrinon’s arms struggled to rip her from its back as it twisted back and forth in an attempt to throw her. Tucking her wings, she made herself smaller and poured more power into the fire spell. The smell of burning flesh made her gag, but she didn’t relent.

The bastard took forever to die and it was bound and determined to take Kate with it. With an agonized scream, it fell from the building and tried to turn itself in midair so it fell backward. Kate let go of her sword and pushed herself to the left before they hit the ground. Her effort was enough not to get crushed, but failed to dodge the Zahkrinon’s wing which caught her body and thrust her against the ground.

#BookBlitz…Sorcerers’ Dynasty…#BookBoost #SciFi #Fantasy @RABTBookTours @RAGEOFWORDS

Sci-fi Fantasy
Date Published: October 2017
An epic struggle to claim eternity.
Since time immemorial the world has been a theater of illusion… Ruled by a Sorcerers’ Dynasty. Beyond the arctic wall of ice lies a new and unknown world. One man plans to sacrifice the known world and everything in it to gain immortality in paradise. The world is filled with lies and liars and America’s most controversial alternative media journalist Dan Sheraton wants to find out why. Strange things have been seen out in the New Mexico desert, and when an even stranger phone call leads him on a dangerous adventure to a mysterious destination, Sheraton discovers earth shattering epiphanies. When an insidious plot hatched by a shadowy global corporation threatens the survival of mankind the most unlikely hero emerges.

  From Sorcerers’ Dynasty by Stephen Perkins copyright 2017 all rights reserved.

 Introduction:

September 2001, D.A.R.C. facility (Center for advanced research and development) deep beneath the arctic ice rim

The new age of darkness was about to fall. It was the epoch of nightmares, demons, and hateful spirits, hatched out from the foul womb of mankind’s subconscious.

And yet, there was nothing new except what had been forgotten. Since time immemorial, the world had always been merely a theater of illusion, albeit a very persistent one, ruled by a sorcerers’ dynasty.

A long shadow slowly crept from a dark corner of the laboratory and into the spangled light. From between the array of shiny consoles and computer monitors blinking gold, green, and blue, Dr. Nathaniel Martin proudly gazed upon his twin creations.

More than any of his inventions over the long centuries, of these he was most proud. Though patents for his most brilliant creations had been filed under the property of his benefactor, Serenity Corporation, the sensory thrill derived from the sheer act of creation, and the idealistic notion merely one of his inventions may benefit mankind, had sufficed and sustained him. For, what were material wealth, comfort, and fleeting fame, Martin pondered, next to the higher considerations of advancing the interests of his fellow man?

Among his other ground-breaking inventions, he pondered the significance of one of his other great discoveries, the secret to human immortality. Would that his desire to share it with the world at large came to bear, Martin thought, but for the iron hand of his benefactor, Serenity Corporation. Though Serenity represented his master, Martin contemplated, throughout the centuries, it had shown itself to be unprincipled, ungrateful, and selfish, believing in nothing save its own material enrichment.

In cool deliberation, he stroked the silvered strands of his well-trimmed beard. Stepping from out of the shadows, he arched his skeleton thin frame over the glass canopy. They were as much symbolic as material flesh, he thought, one black, the other white, representing mankind’s inherent duality. Now, his decades of painstaking research into the creation of sentient life had at last come to triumphant fruition. The doctor glanced at a young laboratory technician standing nearby, tapping figures onto the screen of a digital tablet.

“Congratulations Doctor,” the young colleague said. “Your advanced gene editing process created the first trans-human sentient beings. But now, you’ve successfully drawn the roadmap to mankind’s evolutionary future.”

A proud smile drew across the doctor’s countenance. Owl large brown eyes twinkled beneath gold rimmed spectacles. “I believe you are correct,” Martin replied in a profound whisper. “Indeed, both specimens represent the next evolutionary step for mankind. They shall be placed with carefully vetted and deserving families,” Martin said. “Public records will be made to look legitimate. It will appear as if they were adopted. They shall be attended only by authorized technicians posing as family physicians. They shall appear human, their lives playing out normally. No one, shall suspect anything amiss.”

Setting down the tablet, the technician drew closer to Martin.

“It shall be intriguing to observe how varying environments shall influence social development and assimilation, doctor.”

Martin’s slender fingers floated over the canopied glass like wild birds. His active mind churned with grand speculation.

“Yes, this experiment presents a unique opportunity,” Martin agreed. “After reincarnating, with no memory of their past lives, the fundamental and hypothetical question of the ages shall be determined. Which factor ultimately determines human development, is it nature, or nurture?”

Ruminating deeply, he wondered if making his private deal with the Archons, would, in the end, be worth it. Had he made a mistake? Would having agreed to resurrect the ancient spirits, bring about unforeseen, even disastrous consequences?

“I wonder which shall ultimately prevail to inherit the garden of Eden,” Doctor Martin speculated.

“Will it be good, or evil?”

A sly smile drew across Martin’s haggard but handsome features. No one, he was quite certain, not even Serenity Corporation, or the Archon spirits, possessed knowledge there was yet another sarcophagus secretly buried within the Arctic ice.

Momentarily silent, Martin grew enamored with the vivid implications of his own speculative thought.

“Imagine, if my own spirit, in combination with those of the four Archons, were to inhabit one immortal trans-human machine, shall I, have become God?”

Jewel of the Gods
Mary Bernsen
(Beyond the Gods #2)
Published by: CTP Pulse
Publication date: December 19, 2017
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Mythology, Romance

Sold at the age of seventeen to the king of the realm, Ursula has spent the last four years serving as his submissive concubine. She has grown to love him with a fierce loyalty, but when he orders her to kill a spirited young girl, she simply cannot obey.Her master does not take defiance lightly, so Ursula must find the girl she spared and return her to the king—or lose her own head. Her search leads to the girl’s former employer, a handsome man who introduces Ursula to a world of experiences and freedoms she has never known. Though thrilling and intoxicating, she knows this new lifestyle is only temporary.She must finish her quest and return to her master…before this new, softer kind of love has her questioning everything.

Jewel of the Gods is the second novel in the fiery and passionate Beyond the Gods series by Mary Bernsen.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / Kobo

Sequel to:

Hercules clenched his jaw and balled up his fists. “Do you even hear yourself?” He raised his voice into a mocking tone. “’Poseidon doesn’t allow this. Poseidon prefers that.’ Dear Zeus, Ursula. Have you ever taken a moment to think about what you need? How much longer do you think you will be able to survive under such stifling conditions?”

Suddenly, I was overcome with a sense of shame at myself. I had never taken a step back and thought about what it must seem like to others. There was no way to defend it, either. It was as it seemed. I was my master’s pet. He cared for me, ensured I had my necessities. All he required in return was obedience.

Still, I couldn’t deny Chiron’s earlier claim, either. I had become a stranger to myself in the time I had served Poseidon. There was a time not so long ago when I had harbored fight in my heart. I had to release that independence to save my life, and one way or another Poseidon’s shelter had consumed me until I loved him for it. I hated Hercules for making me question what I had grown so comfortable with. I didn’t want any further complications at the moment.

“It does not matter.” I lifted a chin. “I’m a servant. I have no say in it.”

“You do as long as you are here.” He nodded toward the food in the center of the table. “Eat, or I will starve as well.”

#BookTour…The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper…#BookBoost #Fantasy @lovingthebook @FionaRobyn

 

Continuing the adventure that ended in Britain just a short while ago, cousins Adam and Justin Sinclair, with their friend Kim Maleka, are now hunting for the third Stone of Power, one of seven mysterious stones lost centuries ago. The third stone might be located in an ancient city, hidden in the depths of the Mexican jungle. When their small plane crashes in the jungle, Adam, Justin, Kim, and James are rescued by an uncontacted tribe. James, who is wounded, must stay behind as the kids, with only a young boy, Tukum, as their guide, make their way through the dense and dangerous jungle to find the city. River rafting on a crocodile-infested river and evading predators are just part of this hazardous task.

Of course, their old adversary Dr. Khalid is close behind as the kids press on in search of the lost city of stone gods. But he is not the worst of their problems. This time Adam will clash with a terrible enemy who adopts the persona of an evil Aztec god, Tezcatlipoca, and is keen to revive the ancient tradition of human sacrifice. Adam, Justin, and Tukum must play a dreadful ball game of life and death and maybe survive. Will they emerge alive from the jungle? Will Dr. Khalid find the third Stone of Power before they do?

Character Descriptions

ADAM SINCLAIR (main hero)

Adam was just an ordinary 12-year-old boy with no special powers or anything to make him different from his cousin Justin. Until he went to Egypt and was appointed the bearer of the sacred scarab and told he was part of a quest to discover the seven ancient Stones of Power. Now, his senses are sharpened and he has dreams and visions that guide him and his cousin Justin on their subsequent adventures. Adam initially longed for an adventure … now he’s not so sure he wants all this excitement because it seems as if danger dogs his footsteps.

Quote by Adam: “We could have an adventure … just a small one.”

JUSTIN SINCLAIR (Adam’s cousin)

Justin is bigger and better at a lot of things than his younger cousin Adam. Because things come so easily to Justin, he doesn’t understand when other people struggle to achieve. He can be antagonistic when things aren’t going his way, and expects Adam to always follow him. On the plus side, he is quick to find practical solutions to problems and will apologise when he is in the wrong (after a while…). Justin loves food and whereas Adam will lose his appetite in times of stress, Justin will eat to ‘keep his strength up.’

Quote by Justin:  “When we were in Egypt, that’s how things worked out. Adam did all the clever things. I just had to keep saving everyone from certain death.”

KIM MALEKA

Adam and Justin were aghast to find that on the eve of their second adventure, they’d been saddled with an African girl called Kim Maleka. Kim, who is Adam’s age, is Aunt Isabel’s foster child. Although she entered the adventure feeling slightly at a disadvantage and with school problems hanging over her head, Kim ended up having extremely good ideas and has a practical side that comes in very handy. She develops great confidence and, in the end, the boys consider her an integral part of the team.

Quote by Kim: “Thanks, guys. I knew you’d come get me.”

FAISAL KHALID (the baddie!)

Everyone loves to hate a baddie and the most wonderfully menacing character is the evil Dr. Khalid, head of the Egyptian Museum. He is highly intelligent, odiously charming, and completely ruthless. Pivotal to the plot, Dr. Khalid is smooth, suave, compellingly hypnotic; he is the boys’ Nemesis, with eyes, ears, and loutish henchmen all over the place. He pursues the cousins from the time they set foot in Egypt in all their adventures in search of the Seven Stones of Power. He is not the arch-villain, however; he works for someone far more powerful and sinister.

Quote by Dr. Khalid: “I … Faisal Khalid … I will change history.”

ISABEL SINCLAIR (the boys’ aunt)

She is not afraid to dig for the truth and expose it; politics and social issues rank high in her interests. Isabel treats her nephews like young adults and expects the best from them. It takes her a while to accept that the quest and the Seven Stones of Power exist, but once she does, she is supportive of the boys’ role in finding the remaining stones. Isabel is also instrumental in keeping the boys’ cover story intact each time they go on another leg of the quest. Secretly, Adam and Justin hope she never has her own kids because they consider themselves the sons she never had. Adam is especially close to his aunt.

Quote by Isabel: “We’re not looking for trouble, lost archaeologists, or hidden treasure. We’re going on a nice, safe tour with nice, safe people and that’s all. Adventures only happen in books.”

JAMES KINNAIRD (the boys’ archaeologist friend)

Archaeologist James Kinnaird is the only son (and child) of the Scottish Earl of Strathairn and is not really interested in swanking around being an earl’s son, living the high life, doing a bit of fishing and hunting on the side. Tall, handsome, late thirties, with dark hair and blue eyes, James was born with a silver spoon in his mouth but all he wants is to fulfil his dreams of uncovering and preserving history’s mysteries. He makes a point of searching for things considered mere legend. This has become his trademark, in a way.

Quote by James: “I’m counting on you both to help me. This is just the beginning.”

KOTZ

Kotz is the tribal elder and leader of the Jaguar people, the uncontacted tribe that rescues Adam, Justin and Kim when their plane crash lands in the Mexican jungle. Kotz is aware of the outside world and does all he can to shield his people from the dangers of contact with modern society. He is wise, and tries to help the kids find the Third Stone of Power. Kotz is also a shaman of the tribe, and one of the ‘ah k’in’ or day keepers, the keepers of the history of the Mayan people. He can also interpret dreams and omens.

Quote by Kotz: “Perhaps one day there will be no more jungle and no more animals and birds.”

TUKUM

Tukum is Kotz’s grandson. He is proud boy aged 12, and comes across as arrogant. He is skilled in tracking and hunting. He and Justin get off to a bad start and clash several times. Tukum is absolutely vital to the kids’ survival and he helps them in many ways. He has a quaint way of looking at things. Tukum loves to learn new words and ultimately wants to learn to read English.

Quote by Tukum: “It is better to be alive and called a nasty, smelly monkey than be dead.”

TEZCATLIPOCA (another baddie!)

Also known as Smoking Mirror, Tezcatlipoca has dreams of re-establishing the old Aztec Empire, and is prepared to go to any lengths to achieve this. He proves to be a formidable adversary to both Adam and Dr. Khalid. Adam in particular is in grave danger from this man. Tezcatlipoca is not interested in getting the Third Stone of Power for himself; but he is interested in anything that will cement his hold on superstitious people who believe him to be a god, even if it means a human sacrifice!

Quote by Smoking Mirror: “But we know that underneath the skin, just scratch the surface, people want blood, the old violent way, the worship of hungry gods.”

JUAN

Juan owns the plane that Dr. Khalid sabotages to delay the kids getting to the Third Stone of Power. He is loyal and brave, and wants to help Isabel save the kids and James. His moment comes when he is absolutely vital to the rescue. He can’t believe his luck!

Quote by Juan: “This is so exciting. It is like the Hollywood action movies. I feel like Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger or Mr. Sylvester Stallone. Maybe even The Rock!”

 

I am a children’s author, but up until a few years ago, I was a journalist and editor. Something rather unexpected sparked my new career as an author—a family trip to Egypt with my mother and two young nephews. We had a great time and I thought I’d write them a short story as a different kind of souvenir…. Well, one book and a planned book series later, I had changed careers. I have now published Book 3 (The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper) in my MG adventure series Chronicles of the Stone, with many awards for the first book, The Secret of the Sacred Scarab, and a few for Book 2, The Search for the Stone of Excalibur, and one already for Book 3! I also teach online novel writing for aspiring authors and I find that very satisfying. Relaxation time finds me enjoying something creative or artistic, music, books, theatre or ballet. I love doing research for my book series. I love animals and have written two animal rescue stories. I have two adorable (naughty) little dogs called Chloe and Pumpkin, and a beautiful black cat called Bertie.
