What about us? by Jacqui Henderson 4.5 Stars (13 Reviews)    Price verified 19 minutes ago

"When you said you could love me Grace, did you mean it? Could you love me enough to trust me? Could you love me enough to give up everything you've ever known, to take my hand and just step off this world, if it was the only way we could be together? Think carefully Grace. Could you?" Of course she'd said yes. How could she not? Waiting for him at her favourite cafe in Paris in 1912, she doesn't regret a thing, but she doesn't know if he'll be able to come back for her. It's a gamble, but it's all she's got. Jack was only supposed to be observing, but he meddled and saved Grace's life, thereby changing his future - or was it his past? He knows that they are not meant to be together; it breaks all the rules. The problem is, they never seem to have enough time. But there again, there is someone who thinks they've already had too much of it. They're not sure who they can trust and they're starting to think that time is a funny thing. While they can't count on it waiting for them, can they count on each other?

The battle of wits begins and only the most devious mind will survive. ------------------ "Sixtus:" After becoming friends with a mysterious entity named Jeremy, Zack, a skinny fifteen-year-old nerd suffering from polydactyly, acquires a taste for killing. First, he butchers his parents in their sleep. Then he cold-bloodedly rips out his schoolmate's intestines. A few days later, Zack strangles a young woman before stealing her car. And that was just a beginning. Who--or what--is Jeremy? And what are the reasons behind this killing spree? If you think you know the answers, chances are you are wrong. ------------------ "Intoxication:" Leslie has a suspicion: someone at work is trying to poison her. Can she prove it? No, and she doesn't care that she can't as she takes the law into her hands. How about those who dismiss her fears and believe she is paranoid? Well, they certainly deserve to be punished. What does she do when she starts questioning her own suspicions--and sanity? Hmm. That's complicated. In this disturbing tale of derangement, a young psychopathic woman is slipping into madness as she fights an enemy that may exist only in her imagination. She has to resort to desperate measures when she realizes that a gun, security cameras in her apartment, and constant vigilance will not be enough to survive.

"David Johnson is a fine young man, a real hero from the time he served overseas, but we all know he took some serious damage and most likely won't ever be himself again. He's most likely got that PTSD thing and maybe imagines things. No doubt poor David thinks what he's saying is the truth, but we know better. Don't we?" Susan closed her eyes, the rage building within her at this injustice. In this second book in the Wolf Creek series, wounded veteran David Johnson struggles to keep Susan Elliot and his own grandfather safe from the predatory police chief who, after serial murder attempts, still aims to see the man he holds responsible for his brother's death pay for the supposed crime. David and Susan, both suffering from life-changing injuries, would like to look ahead to the peace and safety of a normal life together, but the sense of looming threat forces their investigative efforts as they begin to discover that even more horrible crimes wait to be disclosed in their thinly populated Oklahoma county. (Books in this series will be more interesting if read in order).

A Glimpse of Fantasy is view, three steps into the mind of author S.D. Reeves. At times comical, at times gritty. Always, imaginative. Sit awhile in the dreamscape of "Pretty as a Picture," or enjoy the comical fantasy of "Wurm Food." And when it is all said and done, take a last ride to the dark future of "8th and Pine." It's spectacular darkness, and shaded light. Interview with the Author Q - Why write Glimpse, why publish a small collection of flash fictio? A -It is hard to tell what you are buying when you get a book. Sure, retailers usually offer the first few chapters free, and that's great. You can tell a lot about the writer's style from the opening. But what about their ability to plot a complex narrative, set a scene, and finish a tale? Flash fiction is a perfect medium to get a taste of an author's talents, and that is exactly what Glimpse is - a taste. Q - So there are other books? A - Book, singular, for now. Curses of Scale is my debut, award nominated, fantasy novel. It isn't a lengthy read - topping in at roughly 300 pages - but it explores complex themes and has nuance. Glimpse is a great little expose for my third person present style. Q- Will there be more books from you? A - Sure. Check out my web-page and subscribe to my newsletter for more details.

England - 957 Two brothers. One kingdom. Unease runs deep within the newly formed England, the young figurehead of the Wessex kingdom, King Eadwig, doing all he can to disadvantage the ancient kingdoms of Mercia, East Anglia and Northumbria, (the kingdoms north of the Thames) so that Wessex and Kent can flourish, at the expense of the newer additions to the core kingdoms of ancient England. But the nobility of Mercia, East Anglia and Northumbria, only recently united with Wessex, have no qualms about separating their kingdom once more, and placing another on the throne, who has their best interests at heart. Edgar, Eadwig's brother, has been raised in the heartlands of the Northern Territories, by a man so powerful he's earned the nickname of 'Half-King', and Edgar has that special talent that his own brother has failed to grasp; he's beloved of the people. As the popular movement, headed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Oda and Athelstan Half-King proclaims Edgar, King of Mercia and King North of the River Thames, there's nothing that King Eadwig, can do, except decry the grabbing hands of the nobility of Wessex, the men and women who've counseled him so badly, and accept the division. But the divided kingdom of England stands open to attack once more, the Scots to the North, led by King Ildulb, the diverse Welsh kingdoms to the West, where the sons of Hywel Dda vie for power, and of course, the Viking raiders to the east, never quiet and now raiding the Scots kingdom under the command of King Hakon of Norway. Can a fragmented England survive? (This can also be read as a prequel to The First Queen of England)

Mortis Operandi: New Hire by Edward Buchanan 3.6 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 10 hours ago

Adventurers enter dungeons every day. Battling evil monsters, defying dangerous terrain, triumphing over devious traps... ... but none of them ever ask why? That arrow trap, who reloads it?

It all begins with Hera & Zeus... Before Noelle ever falls into the Other, before Cassandra becomes the witch in the woods, a young Manhattan socialite meets a stubborn silver-haired stranger and discovers that the Fates won't be denied -- Elisabeth "The old ways are dying." That's how the man who's been following me around the city finally breaks his silence. The old ways are dying, and it's up to me to save them. Well, to be fair, it's up to the two of us. Because, thousands of years ago, we were both gods -- and we were married. He introduces himself as Zeus, king of the gods, and tells me that I'm not really Elisabeth Morgan. I'm Hera, and throughout countless lifetimes over the course of millennia, I've been his queen. Of course, I don't believe him. I'm convinced he's broken loose from an asylum. The first time he approaches, my betrothed warns the silver-haired man to keep away from me. With a smirk, he disappears, as if he knows we'll meet again. And we do because, after seeing him once, I can't stop myself from searching him out again. It's an addiction, a compulsion, a need that turns into a rage so fiery, I nearly burn up the world around me when I discover him with another woman. Because Hera is the jealous sort. Because I'm Hera. And he is Zeus, my wild, uncontrollable, philandering consort. He says the old ways are dying, and we have to return to the Other side. Will I go? I don't know. Can I tame him? Make him mine and mine alone like he never was? He says we're meant to be, but I'm not sure. Can I leave him? No. I can't. So I go. And I discover that there's a whole other realm out there, I'm a whole other person, and, with his help, it's up to Zeus and Hera to save both the worlds. Tame the Spark is a prequel novelette (~14k words) that is set directly before the first full-length Mirrorside book, Stalk the Moon.

What happened to the Princes in the Tower? Was it a mixture of time and magic which transported them through history and legend? Here is one story of betrayal, fear, bravery, loyalty and love. It might be true, or it might be fantasy. Maybe only Edward and Richard know the answer. It might still seem like a dream to them... that first day after that night of flaming torches... Richard stared at the new world and then allowed his brother to come into focus. "Where are we?" he asked feebly, "What's happening? Where are we? Where is this place?" "I don't know," said Edward, truthfully. "I think we are alive but maybe bewitched." "Bewitched!" breathed Richard in horror. "In Hell?" "No! Not Hell. I won't believe that," said Edward. "We've done nothing to deserve Hell. That was a wizard. The purple mist! He did something. A spell or something." Richard collapsed, feeling more wretched than before. Edward held him. "Courage my brother. We live. We are surrounded by strangeness, but we are alive." "But what can we do?" asked Richard. "Where can we go? Who will be our champion?" This looked like the place where they had seen the fox. The knights felt nothing. There seemed to be no magic in this place. Maybe the magic only worked at night, or when the wizard was nearby. Ralph thought back to the moment when they had entered the purple mist. The wizard had vanished, they thought. What if he had just hidden behind the mist, somehow? If so, where did that leave them and the boys. Was there any way back?

Time and Patience (Secession Book 4) by James Huber Price verified one hour ago

Time and Patience is the fourth episode in this thrilling series about the breakaway Southwest Coalition and the bankrupt United States from which the Coalition had seceded. In this episode, we see the formal end of the old USA, as a military coup unseats the Magistrate tribunal which so recently had replaced the former "one President" form of government. Continuing from where Plebiscite ended, Time and Patience also sees us through a series of terrorist acts against both the remnant US and the Coalition. Working cooperatively to the extent possible, the two countries take decisive action on a global scale to permanently remove - or at least defang - some of the more serious threats, at home and abroad. Time and Patience is, like its predecessors, a well-thought-out and perfectly believable succession of events which one should expect in the world, as it has evolved in this series. It is well-balanced mélange of the expected and the unexpected. The often heroic actions of various military personnel in both countries is absolutely realistic. Sadly, the self-centered, deluded, misguided and just plain stupid actions of the anti-heroes in this story are also absolutely realistic.
