Reviews , Science Fiction / January 19, 2018

  BOOK DESCRIPTION Magic has vanished from the world. Whereas once every living person could wield the powers of the arcane as easily and naturally as breathing, those days ended in a flurry of fire and destruction that has left the world a shell of its former, glorious self. For generations, the survivors have struggled to find new ways to live with only mundane tools and abilities as they fight over resources and artifacts of the old world. For Miryam and her family, survival means trade: moving across the lands by wagon and bartering for their livelihood. They stay away and apart from the conflicts that surround them, but a chance encounter with a stuttering, nebbish scholar changes everything. Finding herself caught in a lengthy, brutal struggle between two rival clans, Miryam now faces an uncertain future that may mean leaving everything she knows and loves behind. Worse, it means considering that her encounter may not have been chance, but the beginning of a preordained series of events that will lead her to become the savior of the world, or the one who finishes what the flames of magic started so long ago.   REVIEW A well-crafted Sci-Fi fantasy tale…

Pride and Perpetration
Comedy , Fiction , Reviews / January 11, 2018

  BOOK DESCRIPTION Doing for Jane Austen what Malaria did for travel in Asia, Pride and Perpetration is a story that includes improbable adventures, a very odd druid, and a dinosaur called Fluff. In the year 2047, the world is laid waste. It is a frightening, post-apocalyptic land where existence is divided into a series of kingdoms ruled by dark magic. London is mostly in ruins, with a few ragged inhabitants, but no other city survives in this broken landscape. Commander Fitz Darcy is the leader of a team of elite mercenaries, hired to protect the treasures of a powerful—and somewhat unpleasant—sorcerer. A chance meeting with a dance troupe turns his stable world upside down, especially when he makes the acquaintance of Beth, a charismatic dancer and part-time paleontologist. She quickly dominates all his thoughts. When Fitz is wrongly accused of stealing a book of powerful magic from the sorcerer’s library, he has to flee the castle, along with Beth. Pursued across the ruins of England through caves and flying towns, Fitz and Beth must find their way to a mysterious White Wizard, who might be their only hope to protect them, and bring about the downfall of dark magic.…

The Amaranth Chronicles: Deviant Rising
Reviews , Science Fiction / December 5, 2017

  BOOK DESCRIPTION The Helix was created to revolutionize the way we communicate. But even the purest of intentions can spawn terrible evil. This wasn’t what Lithia had in mind when she decided to run away from home. Her ship was not meant to carry a fugitive wanted in two galaxies, or the stowaways running from a war that wasn’t hers. She just wanted to live a quiet, peaceful life alongside her brother. But now she knows too much about The Helix, the secret hidden deep within it, and what it would mean for all humankind if she walked away.   REVIEW A spectacular flight of the imagination! By Piaras for Emerald Book Reviews on 5th December 2017 Whatever flaws we might identify or frustrations we might feel are trivial in comparison to a reader’s pure joy in losing himself/herself in a narrative. When all the elements come together: an intriguing plot, thoughtful, profound themes, complex, troubling, characters, and language that will amaze for its clarity, directness and confidence; we gratefully set all analysis aside and give ourselves up to the sheer magic of a great book. And for me, The Amaranth Chronicles: Deviant Rising, is such a book. Authors…
