Rise of the Sea Witch
by Stacey Rourke
Genre: Paranormal Fantasy
**
**
Details of the sea witch’s banishment have been exaggerated. The body count
that preempted it was not. Once an illustrious princess, her hands
and tentacles were stained with the blood of thousands. No one could
comprehend how the hooks of madness dragged her down from her life of
privilege.
Born Princess Vanessa of Atlantica, the ambitious young royal was one of
two children born to the great King Poseidon. She and her brother,
Triton, were groomed from birth to rule. Yet only one would ascend
that coveted throne. While carefree Triton flits through his training
with a cavalier demeanor and beguiling charm, Vanessa’s hunger for
her father’s acceptance drives her to push herself to the limits of
magic, and combat to become a leader worthy of her people.
When war against the humans ravages their once regal kingdom, political
sides are chosen. Factions from the seven seas challenge the existing
leadership, pitting Vanessa against her brother in a vicious battle
for the crown. Traitors are exposed, dark family secrets revealed,
and a once strong sibling bond is strained to its breaking
point.
Only when the ink black waters from the ultimate betrayal rescind, will
the truth be known of how the villainous sea witch rose with one name
on her vengeful lips–Triton.

TheDragon’s Playlist by Laura Bickle – Book Tour

15/06/17


The Dragon’s Playlist
Laura Bickle
Genre: Contemporary Fantasy
 
ISBN: 9781537891965
From the author of THE HALLOWED ONES and NINE OF STARS comes a new novel blending the magical and the real…
“This is war,” the dragon said. And she believed him.
Di fled rural West Virginia to study music and pursue a bright future as a violinist. But when a mining accident nearly kills her father, she is summoned back home to support her family. Old ghosts and an old flame emerge from the past. When Di gets a job as a bookkeeper at the same mine where her father worked, she is drawn into a conflict pitting neighbor against neighbor as the mine plans an expansion to an untouched mountain.
If the mining company’s operation goes forward, there will be more at stake than livelihoods or the pollution of the land: Di has discovered a dragon lives deep within Sawtooth Mountain, and he is not happy with this encroachment upon his lair. When catastrophe strikes, Di must choose between her family’s best interests and protecting the dragon – the last surviving bit of magic in Di’s shrinking world.
In every fight, sides are chosen. And there can be no yearning for what has been left behind.

In a world where the corrupt church hides the truth about magic, the
fate of the joined kingdom falls on the shoulders of two young people

Crown Princess Samantha’s life begins to fall apart when she starts

a demon.
Thrown together by chance, they must overcome their differences to fight
their common enemy Duke Argblutal, who, with dark magic, is slowly

Jamie began writing stories about the man from Mars when she was six, and
she never remembers wanting to be anything other than a writer.
Everyone told her she needed a back up plan, so she pursued a Ph.D.
in American literature, which she received in 1998. She started
teaching writing and literature at Auburn University. One day in the
midst of writing a piece of literary criticism, she realized she’d
put her true passion on the backburner and neglected her muse. The
literary article went in the trash, and she began the book that was
to become The Goddess’s Choice, which was published in April 2012.
Her other novels include The Soul Stone and The Ghost in Exile. In
addition, she has published a novella, Demons in the Big Easy, and a
collection of short stories, Blood Cursed and Other Tales of the
Fantastic. Her short fiction has also appeared in the
anthologies–Urban Fantasy and Of Dragons & Magic: Tales of the
Lost Worlds—and in Bards & Sages, The World of Myth, A Writer’s
Haven, and Short-story.me. She claims she writes about the fantastic
. . . and the tortured soul. Her poor characters have hard lives. She
lives in Auburn, Alabama, with her husband and four cats, which (or
so she’s been told) officially makes her a cat lady. She still
teaches writing and literature at Auburn University. She is the
mother of a grown son.

and other great works of art, The Last Wife of Attila the Hun offers
readers a thrilling story of love, betrayal, passion and revenge, all
set against an ancient backdrop itself gushing with intrigue.

Rosinanti Series by Kevin J. Kessler – Book Tour + #Giveaway

**
Rosinanti
The Rosinanti Series Book 1
by Kevin J Kessler
Genre: Fantasy
 **
**
The Rosinanti Dragons are no more. Since their extinction nearly one
thousand years ago these primal powerhouses have fallen into the
obscurity of history’s forgotten lore. In that time, humans have
come to dominate the world of Terra, peacefully ignorant to one
horrifying truth: ancient evil stirs around them, waiting to reclaim
its lost world.
For Valentean Burai, animus warrior of the kingdom of Kackritta, the
details surrounding humanity’s victory over the Rosinanti are more
than just a history lesson. The long-buried mysteries of this archaic
conflict may hold the answers that he has so desperately sought
regarding his own past.
As the awful truth of the Rosinanti’s supposed demise comes to light,
Valentean must stand together with Seraphina, a magically gifted
princess, to embark upon a mission to maintain order and light
throughout Terra. Only together can these two lifelong friends face
down the resurgence of the Rosinanti legacy, and combat the greatest
threat their world has ever known.

Rosinanti: The Decimation of Casid
A Rosinanti Novella, Book 1.5
**
**
While an entire world away, men turn into dragons and ancient magic ignites
the air, Casid lived on in peaceful ignorance. This tiny village and
its people existed outside of the conflict which threatened to
swallow Terra, until the day chaos itself landed upon its shores.
Now, one lone warrior seeks to protect his family, his friends, and the
woman he loves as demons rise from the flames to burn everything he
has ever loved to ash. This man is no god, no fundamental force of
nature. He is simply a man, alone against the fury of chaos.
Casid will be decimated, consumed by the same blaze which threatens to
overtake all of Terra. But what will rise from the ashes of this once
perfect haven, forged in the fires of tragedy and loss, might become
the most fearsome opponent the darkness has ever known.

Rosinanti: Wrath of the Faithful
The Rosinanti Series Book 2
 **
**
Valentean Burai and Seraphina Kackritta barely escaped the grip of chaos. Only
by working together were these two life long soul mates able to
combat the greatest threat the world of Terra has ever known.
But when they find themselves separated, with the entire world turned
against them, both princess and animus warrior must battle not only
the forces of chaos and darkness that seek to end their world, but
their own crippling doubts and fears.
Valentean must also face the horrifying truth of himself. He is one of the last
surviving members of the Rosinanti race, and holds within him
world-destroying power, and the unwanted uncontrollable ability to
transform into a fearsome dragon.
The struggle of man vs beast is not limited to the battlefield. Valentean
will wage that war internally, within the confines of his own
conflicted heart.
But, in the end, who is stronger? The man, or the dragon?

Gods Inc Series

Book Two

Gabriele Russo

 

Fiery Seas Publishing


June 13, 2017
 

Book Description:

 
When you live in a world pullulating with gods, can you truly be an atheist? Well, yes…if you know a way to get rid them.
 
Mysantheos, a fanatic atheist at the head of a powerful lobby/terrorist organization, has created a weapon able to kill gods. All he needs is a disruptive figurehead to attract the masses. Goblin, who has just tried to supplant Queen Louhi as CEO of Gods Incorporated, has been deemed the right kind of unworthy. Mysantheos breaks him out of the Queen’s prison and the godslaughter begins.
 
As the divine bodies pile up, panicked gods blame the CEO Queen for Goblin’s escape. Resentment builds in the company and violent factions start pushing for the extermination of the human race. Will Queen Louhi’s Nerd Squad, a group of angry gods, and Richard (a down-on-his-luck private eye),  manage to find Mysantheos in time to prevent what promises to be the bloodiest conflict between men and god ever?
 

About the Author:

 
Gabriele Russo, AKA Lucie-Gabrielle Jolicoeur-Rousseau, was born in Quebec City amidst a family of book lovers – her father had dreamed of being a writer and both of her brothers are published authors.
 
Since she earned her Bachelor’s in History, it was no surprise (except to her) that she ended up working in restaurants, eventually owning two, which almost drove her mad. She sold them and was nursed back to pseudo-sanity by Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett.
 
That’s when she answered the family calling and decided to write. Armed with her ideas for the Gods Inc. series she went back to the University and got her Master’s in Creative Writing.
 
She now lives with her husband in Culpeper, Virginia, where she divides her time between painting, ripping apart and reconstructing her recently bought historical home, playing tennis and, of course, writing more books.

her pointed ears aren’t a liability when she’s tasked to
infiltrate a rebel lord’s castle.
In this prequel to Songs of Insurrection, Jie must decide between her

Only the lost magic of Dragon Songs can save the realm. Only a naïve girl
with the perfect voice can rediscover it.


Blessed with an unrivaled voice, Kaiya dreams of a time when music could
summon typhoons and rout armies. Maybe then, the imperial court would
see the awkward, gangly princess as more than a singing fool.

 

When members of the emperor’s elite spy clan uncover a brewing
insurrection, the court hopes to appease the ringleader by offering
Kaiya as a bride.

 

Obediently wedding the depraved rebel lord means giving up her music.
Confronting him with the growing power of her voice could kill her.

The mightiest dragon threatens the world, and only the power of a Dragon
Song can vanquish him.


Two years have passed since Kaiya rediscovered the lost magic of Dragon
Songs, yet the power of her voice is untrained. Potential suitors see
her as a stepping stone. One ruthless cousin would rather step on her
gravestone.
Not one to get walked over or buried, Kaiya is holding out for the exiled
foreign prince who inspired her to sing. The only one who appreciates
her abilities more is the world’s last dragon, Avarax, and it’s
not because he enjoys a good song.
Raw and unproven, she finds mentors in unlikely places. An elf courtier.
An ancient healer. A martial arts master. And an evil sorcerer.
She’ll need their guidance to survive the final showdown between a
girl finding her voice, and a dragon who has no intention of being
fooled a second time.

**
An invincible empire threatens to invade Cathay, and only a Dragon Song
can ensure peace.


After vanquishing the Last Dragon with the power of her voice, all Kaiya
wants is a quiet life of anonymity. Instead, the Emperor sends her to
negotiate peace with the aggressive Teleri Empire.

 

The critical mission reunites her with her childhood friend Tian, now an
assassin-spy who loathes killing. He is no longer the adorable,
gullible boy from her memories, any more than she is the adventurous,
sweet girl from his. Instead of rekindling nostalgia for a youthful
innocence they both yearn for, their reunion ignites a mutual
hatred.
When the Teleri Empire breaks off talks, Tian must help Kaiya escape.
Orcs, Ogres, and enemy soldiers stand between them and home, and
their volatile relationship could get them captured… or killed.

Kaiya escapes her ordeal at the hands of the Teleri Emperor, only to return
to a homeland beset by enemies on all sides, and crumbling from
within.


As a teenager, she quelled a rebellion with the Dragon Scale Lute. As a
young adult, she vanquished a dragon with the power of her
voice.
Now, robbed of her magic by grief, Kaiya must navigate a web of court
intrigue to save the realm before it falls. Only she can lay claim to
the Dragon Throne on behalf of her unborn sons—whether the father
is the lover who perished rescuing her, or the hated enemy who killed
him.
In the final story in Kaiya’s saga, she must rally a nation, repel
invaders, and prove to the world why her family alone holds the
Mandate of Heaven.
