Nicholas Raven and the Wizards' Web - Volume 1, by Thomas J. Prestopnik. (Still free?)

"A well written book, in one of my favorite genres. I am extremely critical of books with new worlds. Do I know my way around, do I understand the make up of the kingdoms. Are they shown and picturesque as opposed to being told. Are the characters well thought out, do I care about them and what happens to them. And the answer is yes, to all of them. I was really surprised at how I could not wait to get back into the lives of Nicholas Raven and his friends." -- Amazon Reviewer

NICHOLAS RAVEN AND THE WIZARDS' WEB - Volume 1

4 Kings.  3 Wars.  2 Nasty Wizards.  1 Magic Key.
An epic fantasy in three volumes for adults and older teens.

Volume 1: Prologue & Chapters 1 - 39
Volume 2: Chapters 40 - 85
Volume 3: Chapters 86 - 120 & Postscript

Nicholas Raven, a young gristmill accountant, just wanted a little adventure in his life. But he gets more than he bargained for when tumultuous winds of the past sweep him away on a journey he'll never forget.

Invisible webs are being spun over the lands of Laparia; webs of war, deceit, revenge and manipulation, all by two corrupt wizards with different objectives. When Nicholas becomes an inconvenience to their plans which pass by his very doorstep, he finds himself unwittingly ensnared in their vindictive schemes.

After being accused of crimes he didn't commit, Nicholas reluctantly flees home. But whether by chance or fate, his personal problems collide with the turbulent state of affairs around him, and he soon finds himself on a journey to the far corners of Laparia.

Against a backdrop of war, kidnapping, mistaken identity and newfound love, Nicholas becomes embroiled in a rescue mission along the shores of a sprawling sea, takes part in a quest to reforge a magic key that could tip the balance of power in a growing war, and is ultimately drawn into the center of the tangled web of intrigue that has plagued his life from the very start.

Four maps are also included:

Map 1: The Lands of Laparia
Map 2: The Kingdom of Arrondale
Map 3: The County of Litchfield
Map 4: The Village of Kanesbury

"Amazing characters and great storytelling make this a real page turner. The Ruby Brooch is one of the best books I've read this year; it's a fantastically original and moving book that will make you believe in true love and soul mates.This book was breathtaking from beginning to end. A poignant tale of loss and love and hope. I cannot wait for the next installment! I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance. " -- Amazon Reviewer

Ambassador 1: Seeing Red (Ambassador: Space Opera Thriller), by Patty Jansen. (Still free?)

"I've been reading Science Fiction for a long time. This story is good. It's not simplistic, but neither is it so far out of left field that it has more culture than character. It's a really good tale with enough twists and turns to keep you flicking the pages, and the characters are real and develop from moment to moment. I'm now looking forward to reading the next one. Ambassador 2: Raising Hell. " -- Amazon Reviewer

Book 1 of the Ambassador Space Opera Thriller series.

24 October 2114: the day that shocked the world.

Young diplomat Cory Wilson narrowly escapes death in the assassination of President Sirkonen. No one claims responsibility but there is no doubt that the attack is extraterrestrial.

Cory was meant to start work as a representative to Gamra, the alien organisation that governs the FTL transport network, but now his new job may well be scrapped in anger.

Worse, as Earth uses military force to stop any extraterrestrials coming or leaving, as 200,000 extraterrestrial humans are trapped on Earth, as the largest army in the galaxy prepares to free them by force, only Cory has the experience, language skills and contacts to solve the crime.

But he's broke, out of a job and a long way from Earth.



334 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 22 reviews.
