forbidden Book Cover

Synopsis:

The European vampire brood is in decline. The Vampiric Council’s rule is iron clad amid rumors of an uprising. How does one stop that? It came in the form of an Oracle verse, and a name …

“Julianna”.
As a warrior of the Brethren of Erebus, Moros must obey the commands of the Heir Elder, who is convinced this young woman is his only hope of saving the vampire Brood. Sent to America, a forbidden land by decree of the European rulers, he arrives to learn he has been exiled and his family honor, in ruins.

Angered by this betrayal, Moros continues the search for Julianna. However, the more he learns, the less Moros believed the mission he was on will clear his name. Entangled in a web of lies, rivalry, deception, the threat of war, and the wrath of a Pan Celtic God, he does not know what, or who, to believe.

But in the mist of all that, he does find one thing unexpected … love.

About The Author:

Jill Turner

Jill Turner currently lives with her youngest child and a slightly scatty cat in the north of wet and windy Essex in the UK. She started to read at an early age and never stopped! She loves the escape from reality that she finds in between the pages. She’s been creating stories in her head for more years than she cares to think about so she decided that it would be a good idea to write some of them down. Jill made a start with the first book in the series, The Seelie Princess, and it grew into a trilogy. To her utter amazement it reached bestseller status on Amazon, Kindle Free Fairy Tales and this fact was all the encouragement she needed to continue. She hopes all children (and their parents) enjoy the stories.

Jill studied for a B.Ed and was once a paralegal. She has worked in Early Years education for many years and currently delivers NVQ’s for those who want to do the same.

She would have loved to meet Sir Terry Pratchett during his lifetime to thank him for giving the world his Discworld series of books – if she believed she had one ounce of his talent, she would be a very happy lady!

SPOTLIGHT: RETRIBUTION (THE DAGGER OF AITA, BOOK 1) BY S.J. WOLFF

Retribution

Throughout history we have been here. We were born of the union between the Watchers and the Daughters of Men. Our human hearts pump the blood of Angels through our veins yet, we are neither human nor angel. We are the Alimentatori, descendants of the divine, and this is just the beginning…

In my two-hundred and sixty three years I have witnessed much, yet nothing could have prepared me for the devastating murder of my brother, Julian. While he lies in stasis awaiting The Release, his killer roams the Lazio region of Italy free to seek other victims. But, all is not right behind the veil of this ancient landscape. Its beauty hides a world of ancient secrets, hidden agendas, and political intrigues. In order to extract my vengeance, I must first play a dangerous game according to another’s rules. Playing by the rules has never been my forte; toppling a game-board or two would suit me just fine! Regardless of the dangers that lie ahead, Retribution will be mine.

My name is Jacen Trudeau of the House of Samsaveel and I’m about to open Pandora’s Box.

About the Author:

A lover of superheroes and all things fantasy it was only natural to find a home within the Sci-Fi/Fantasy genre. Growing up, the major influences in S.J.’s life were Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, the quintessential Star Wars, Robert Aspirin (his Mything series), Douglas Adams (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy), and of course J.R.R. Tolkien.

As a wife, mother of three, and US Navy Veteran. I have spent a great deal of my life in service to others. In late 2008 I realized that the one thing in my life that had not been given its due, was the love of my youth – writing. With the kids grown and my military service in the past, I made a pact with my Muse. I would put writing at the forefront and he would guide me to my ultimate goal, publication.

For the first two years I tried. I dabbled in historical romance. I got a third of the way through a novel before it lost its luster. The struggle frustrated me. I stepped away from the desk and glared at the screen as if it were the problem and not me. And then I met a young woman who wrote in a genre I’d never considered. I picked up one of her Urban Fantasies and within a few pages knew it was something I would like to try my hand at. I immediately sat down and wrote a scene – for the first time ever – in first person. What was created had a life I’d never seen in my writing before. After a lifetime of practicing my art, I’d found a new way to move forward.

Unfortunately, the right angle at fantasy and a good story alluded me. Then one day, while sitting in a workshop where the speaker was talking about her vampire series, my mind wandered. Through a crack, somewhere in the creative, a scene unfolded. Two characters came to life and played out a scene on a rooftop. I wrote the first couple of lines on the napkin next to me. When I got home, I wrote the scene. To my amazement, it was pretty good. I loved the characters. I loved the banter. I loved how writing it made me feel. Finally after so much struggle, my Muse had done it. He’d finally broken down the barrier that had kept the ideas at bay and given me a story which needed to be told. I’d found my niche in a genre known as Dark Contemporary Fantasy and the rest is, as they say, literary history.

SPOTLIGHT: THE BAZAAR BY AUTHOR JEN PONCE

The Bazaar

Devany Miller’s job as a victim’s advocate roots her in reality as firmly as a person can be, which makes the offer of ‘magic sugar’ from a gorgeous salesman at a psychic fair all the more fantastic. The sugar, he tells her, will allow her to visit the exclusive vendors tucked away in the shadows beyond his tent. Indulging in fancy, she takes a taste and ventures into what she figures is a tourist trap. Then the screams begin and Devany is yanked violently into a world of butchered humans, of witches who make foolish deals with demons, and of spiders that use human skins as camouflage for their assassinations.

Devany’s normal life begins to crumble into madness as she struggles to stay alive. Her marriage falls apart. And of course, there is the little matter of the demon who has laid claim to her, and the powerful creature that wants to take her apart piece by piece to taste her soul. Despite her fear, Devany has children to protect, and she can’t sit idly by while monsters in the guise of people drag innocents to their deaths.

In a war between the humans and the inhabitants of the sea — humans will lose. Xanthus Dimitriou— the most lethal Dagonian to rise from the ocean — is on a mission to save mankind from annihilation. But first there is one small thing he needs to do … kill a beautiful young woman in a wheelchair.

Killing her does not start out as part of his plan. He entrenches himself deep in the human world. Aligning with his enemies, he prepares to send them to Triton to face their punishment. Then Sara Taylor rolls onto the scene. Xanthus knows at once she is a criminal. And her crime? Being born. She is a human/Dagonian half-breed, an abomination. Killing her should be an easy job. All he has to do is break into her apartment, slit her throat, and feed her body to the sharks. Simple, right? Wrong. If only she were not so beautiful, so innocent, so sweet …

Saving the world may have to wait. It appears Xanthus has a woman to save. But protecting her may cost him his own life.

SPOTLIGHT: THE GLASS APPLE SERIES BY ROBERT J. FRANKS

Robert J. Franks

For orphans Jason, Kylie and Anna, magic was not a word that featured largely in their lives. At least, not until their American grandfather took them in. A comical old man with a name to match. Ethelbert Gobswistle. A magical campervan called Edsel transports them up to Yorkshire, where, in a bungalow called Cookiecrumb, they meet Gobswistle’s friend, a black plastic Christmas Fairy called Etain. Rambunctious, authoritative, and opinionated, she brooks no nonsense from either the children or the old man. And gradually, the small group becomes a family. But an ancient mythical witch, The Medb, pursues the old man and his family. She seeks his source of magic, the Anguinum, a powerful crystal carved to resemble a green glass apple shaped bowl. As they flee from her wrath, they seek the help of the Gwyllion, ancient fairies, who tell them they need three magical books in order to stop the ancient witch. But the books are hidden in the past. . .

About The Author:

Robert J. Franks Photo

Robert Franks was born in Norfolk, England. His father was a dairy farmer, his mother a nurse and his sister a frequent sparring partner. Brought up in the middle of the Norfolk countryside, he grew up with JRR Tolkein, Anne Macaffrey and Alan Dean foster for company. Oh, and 12 dachshunds, a welsh collie, two Pekinese, a great Dane, two Bassett hounds, innumerable farm cats, a rabbit hutch of both rabbits and guinea pigs, a golden pheasant, some chickens and a rather cantankerous old goose.
He wrote from an early age, completing his first full length novel at the age of 15. It was never published, but certain characters never went away, and have resurfaced in his most recent books, The Glass Apple Series.
He worked as a shop manager for many years, and his writing was put, for the main part, to one side.
The first three chapters of The Glass Apple were finished way back in 1997, but again work took priority. In the winter of 2009, he was made redundant when his shop was closed. Since then he has returned to his first love, writing.
The first three books of the Glass Apple series (The Glass Apple; Spider’s Web; Song of the Shaman) are all already available in both paperback (via Amazon) and kindle form.
