Maggie for Hire (Maggie MacKay - Magical Tracker), by Kate Danley. (Still on sale?)

The story starts in urban LA, but quickly escalates to include monsters, vampires and elves. This fantasy has adventure, suspense and great characters.

"Combine vampires, ghouls, and one whip-smart, take-charge heroine, and you have a recipe for success. Kate Danley has served up a female lead character to fill the gap that the ending of Buffy the Vampire Slayer left in the world of sci-fi/fantasy." - Twisting the Lens

When monsters appear in Los Angeles, Maggie MacKay is on the job. No one is better at hauling the creepy crawlies back where they belong. No one, that is, except her dad, who disappeared without a trace in the middle of an assignment.

Now an elf named Killian has shown up with a gig. Seems Maggie's uncle is working with the forces of dark to turn Earth into a vampire convenience store, serving bottomless refills on humans.

The only hope for survival lies in tracking down two magical objects and a secret that vanished with Maggie's father.

"The story is Hot, Sexy & Intensely Haunting. Filled me with despair one moment, then made me laugh the next. Loved each and every one of the characters, even the rotten ones, as they were portrayed in such a way, that you felt you knew each and every one personally." -- Amazon reviewer

One tragic event can change everything in a life.
It can change the way we see the world around us.
Sometimes it can change the worlds we see.
Worlds we didn't know existed.

When she slips into the In-Between for a few seconds she sees him.
He's more beautiful than anything she has ever seen before.
She's drawn to him in a way she can't explain.

Between the popular girls being poisoned and love's first kiss,
she hardly has time to chase down a mystery man.

As the poison that sent her to the In-Between wreaks havoc on her body,
the man she met there is equally damaging on her heart.

Heir to the Luima Legacy (Luima Legacy Series), by Gabrielle Poplar. (Still on sale?)

This is a kingdom fantasy with some Christian themes. A feud within the royal family leaves brothers, Meryl and Nestor, to defend the kingdom's fate.

"It's a well-written book and is an easy read with the chapters flowing easily into each other and you want to read more to find out what happens. If you like your fantasy peppered with a good dose of political intrigue, then I think you'd enjoy this. I certainly did." -- Amazon reviewer

Some people advance beyond their wildest aspirations, and other people descend lower than the expectations of their family and friends. Such was the story of Meryl and Nestor, a story that began in Custodian of the Luima Legacy, now the struggle between the brothers continue.

Meryl became the King of the Luima because of a series of events that revealed his true ancestry. He also found out that he was the first son of Prince Finnegan, heir to the throne of Bahadi. The Prince had another son, Nestor, who had been abducted by King Arpad of Estruchi. Nestor’s uncle and a few nobles determined to maintain Nestor’s position in the Bahadi line of succession declared Meryl to be a bastard King, and they recruited a cult of assassins to remove him. The internal feud in the Bahadi royal family was exploited by King Arpad, who convinced the dissenting Bahadi Lords to side with him in launching a war against the dominant Bahadi kingdom.

The choices made by Nestor, and the resolutions made by Meryl would determine who would become the Heir to the Luima Legacy.

The Apprentice of Fyordorn, by Colin Hawkes. (Still on sale?)

Here's a science fantasy adventure that has magicians manipulating the events on the planet of Erith. Get it on sale today!

"This book is the start of a great series. I loved the characters and the feel of everything. I can't wait to get more of this series. " -- Amazon reviewer

In a fast moving science fantasy adventure the Grand Masters of Sarros and Altim deploy their magicians and pit their wits and armies against each other as they manipulate events on the world of Erith. Plot and counter plot are interwoven where friends and enemies are found in the most unexpected places. But it is an unsuspecting apprentice magician at the court of Fyordorn with a somewhat unconventional approach to magic who is pivotal to the final outcome.
Since publication, The Apprentice of Fyordorn has been followed by a sequel, The Grain of Truth and a prequel, The Voids of Discovery.
‘It was a tired and exhausted Master of Sarros who finally left the comfort of his chair and walked wearily to the collection of spheres hovering at the far end of the room. They graphically showed the status of his war with Altim. Grimly he was reminded that more were flame red and under Altim’s control than blue and under his protection. How could a tiny speck of sand be the cause of so much bloodshed' But then ‘the grain of truth’ protected by layers of differing magic was said to contain the knowledge of all the known worlds. It was that knowledge that the Grand Master of Altim had vowed to discover at any cost. And it was on the blue sphere representing the world of Erith that the magic that would unlock its secrets might be found.
Shaking his head he made his way to a low table and studied a chequered board on which a number of figurines were displayed. Slowly his hand moved to that of a raven. He held it for a while and then gently placed it on a square already occupied by his eagle. The small blue sphere at the far end of the room shone with a raven’s image. His decisive move had been made. Later that evening seated again in his chair he watched it glow once more. The image of a hawk appeared. The Grand Master of Altim had made his counter move and a Guardian had been put in place.
