By R.J. Batla
Celeste Dumas is the most powerful water Senturian her race has produced in generations. But skill alone doesn’t make you a leader.
Fierce drive and determination have led to her becoming the youngest captain in Tempus history.
Her elation is cut short when a simple assignment goes terribly wrong. A vanishing ship and an invisible adversary lurking below the surface sends her and the crew of the Ajax into uncharted waters fraught with danger as they uncover a much more sinister plot.
Can Celeste overcome her past and stop the enemy outmaneuvering her at every turn? Not only is her crew at risk, but the entire Tempus race.
Pirates, action, and amazing powers combine in the second novel in the Terraunum Origins Series, chronicling characters from Fire Eyes Awakened.
The Dragon’s Blood Key
Linda L Barton
YA Fantasy at its finest
It all began with a mysterious book and the story of a magical kingdom. The kingdom of Walandra is a wondrous place, full of magical creatures and… DRAGONS. A curse cast over the kingdom imprisoned the people in darkness. It is time for the champion who will end the curse and banish the Evil Queen to the Land of Shadows.
A young woman from a far-off realm must save the kingdom. As Cassy prepares to face the Evil Queen Alona, she must learn to harness the power hidden deep within her. Her quest will take her on an enchanting adventure, and awaken an ancient power that will free the people of Walandra. Sometimes, the Hero comes in a form least expected.
High school student Paul Coleman’s life is an ordinary one. His existence takes a turn for the extraordinary when he and his best friend, Rory, are attacked by a winged demon one day. The demon, which calls itself Hekla, possesses the power of sound, and kills Rory with its scream. Paul survives, but the force from the blast has left him mainly deaf.
A year later, Paul is out of school, working part-time, and is fearful of going deaf forever. Although he has learned sign language well, he wonders where his life will go.
All that changes when Montague (Monty) Trillian, also known as Master Fantastic, enters his life and requests his services as a sign language teacher for his daughter, Myrna.
Paul accepts, and soon finds out that Trillian is not just any magician, but an Elementalist, one capable of wielding the four elements of Earth with ease. He can also open portals to other worlds, and often does so, visiting those of earth, water, and fire.
Many adventures follow, and Paul and Myrna grow close, but Hekla returns and demands Myrna be given to her. It seems that Myrna is the product of a union between Monty and Hekla, and like all mothers, she desires to protect her own.
Now, Paul must do everything he can to save Myrna from being used for a fate far worse than death, and only the abilities of Master Fantastic can save them all—or can they?

If she doesn’t the Elf children will die a slow and painful death as they rapidly age and the Fairies will be enslaved, their wings cut and boiled down for the town’s magic potion supply. She rescues adults searching for the lost children and accidentally promises to marry their father, an impossibly seductive and strong Elf soldier.

The Brittle Riders Trilogy
A, far future, Earth had already been visited by an alien race, called the Sominids, who came here for the express purpose of drinking and having sex with everyone they could. When one of their, infamous, parties resulted in the moon being cut in half, and killing everyone who happened to live there, they quietly left.
Their encounter with the Sominids taught the human race many things, primarily that faster than light travel didn’t exist. Denied the stars the human race began to dwindle in number and terminate any space programs.
A thousand years later a scientist named Edward Q. Rohta circumvented anti-AI laws, which had been on the books for millennia, by creating organic creatures to provide manual labor. Instead of dying after ten years, as promised in the company brochure, they would develop flu-like symptoms and go into hiding. Eventually, fed up with the mistreatment they suffered at the hands of humans, they rose up and killed every man, woman, and child on the planet.
This the story of what happens next.
The Brittle Riders, apocalypses are funny that way.
