Book Discovery - newly-published and overlooked books!
Aquaria (Zodiac Rising Series - Aquarius), by Margaret Lake
Aquaria, conceptual artist (although she’d created nothing), free spirit (although she likes the life provided by her fishing captain father), a woman who wants to get as far away from fish and fishermen as she can. But until she can wheedle the money out of her father, she’s stuck in the tiny seaport town she’d grown up in.

Javier, Javy to his friends and family, loves the sea, and as a third generation fisherman, has no intention of giving up the life he was born for. But when he meets Aquaria, nearly running her down in the dark with his bike, he’s soon faced with a choice that could tear him apart; his love or his life.

Sword of Spirit (Legendary Armor of God), by David J. VanBergen Jr.
In a land that has known peace for centuries, an enemy to the north is stirring again. 300 years ago, the Armor of God protected the land, but was lost and became legend. Now that it is needed again, even the legends have faded into obscurity.

With the help of an ancient prophecy, Persephonie, a young druid, finds the unlikely hero prophesied to save the world and starts him along the epic quest to find the armor and save the Kingdom. Mat, a young man barely past his 17th birthday, is thrust into a quest that will change his life and change the world.

With the fate of the Southern Kingdom hanging in the balance, will this untested young man be able to save his friends, family, and, ultimately, himself?
