I got my very first book review: I know this may sound trivial to the authors here who have written dozens of books, and have hundreds of reviews, but this is my first novel

My big day is here: LEGEND OF THE MYSTIC KNIGHTS is now available for the Kindle on Amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MNKNI9U

 

I am very excited about this, it is my first novel.  Here is the discription:

The world has been taken over by evil monsters spawned in hell itself. So powerful is the evil that civilization has been stuck in the medieval times for the last 1,000 years. The only hope for humankind is a page training to be a knight. Is the simple page the one prophesied to remove the evil from our world? Can this page become a knight, so he can fulfill his destiny? All he has to do is survive long enough.

Legend of the Mystic Knights is the debut novel by W.A.Rusho
Combining elements of fantasy with realistic accounts of medieval living, the author has created a book that not only entertains but also educates

Runemaster
Book #2, The Shardheld Saga trilogy
By Paul E. Horsman
Publisher:  Red Rune Books
ISBN: 978-9491730078
ASIN: B00FAOFZP6
Genre: Light Epic Fantasy, YA Fantasy, Fantasy
Formats Available For Review: pdf, epub, mobi (via free Smashwords coupon)

Muus, Kjelle and Tuuri; three young men, separated by allegiance but intertwined by Fate. Birthe and Moirra; two young women with their own goals.

Muus found the mysterious blue stone that crashed down near his home. Now he is both a Runemaster, learning the terrible power of the runes, and the Shardheld, on whose shoulders rests the fate of the world's magic. He is desperately trying to resist the pull of the skyshard before it takes over his mind. Step by step, Fate brings him nearer to Falrom, the Burning Land, and the standing stone that waits for the skyshard.

Kjelle is the dispossessed Lord, whose disgruntled men are the Norden's line of defense against hordes of Fynni barbarians plundering the lands. He has to stop the Fynni from reaching their goal, the return of the Old Gods and with them, all the horrors from the distant past.

Tuuri, follower of the powerful warlord bent on conquering the north. Troubled by doubts, hatred of his Fynni heritage, hunted by both sides of the conflict, he hurries south to a choice he doesn't yet know he has to make.

Birthe, widow and mother at sixteen, both Völva - mistress of the magic of the Nords - and huntmaster, accompanies Kjelle in the hope of finding a new purpose now everyone she loved, is dead.

Moirra, the Un-a-Dach druidess, small, doughty and wise, joins Muus on his journey to Falrom, the Burning Land. But she has secrets in her past, and a purpose she doesn’t speak of.

And there are others, like the far too clever little boy Hraab, the young Prince Ottil, the fearsome bear berserker Ajkell and the Lady Paladin Valiantrude. Join them on their journeys through danger in the lands of Brytanna, Gaul and Lotharn, for theirs is high adventure in a world filled with rebels, Vikings and idolaters of false Gods.

Starting today (Thursday, May 22nd), I’m running a Kindle Countdown Deal on my collection THE PLAGUE KNIGHT AND OTHER STORIES. It’s now in progress on both Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

 

THE PLAGUE KNIGHT AND OTHER STORIES collects some of my best heroic fantasy stories set in worlds of my own invention as well as a couple surprises. If you enjoy my Forgotten Realms work, you’ll like these stories, too.

 

To get the best price of all, buy the book during the first twenty-four hours of the sale. (But you’ll still get a discount if you buy before the promotion ends on Sunday.)

BookGirlR didn't know George R. R. Martin had written anything other than his A Song of Ice and Fire series.  Silly BookGirlR.  Find out what she thought of Fevre Dream

Shadowborn
By Moira Katson
B00CAWVLL8

“You, Catwin, no longer exist. You no longer have a fate of your own, a will of your own, or indeed a soul of your own. You will go where Miriel goes, you will watch instead of being watched, you will hear instead of being heard.”

Catwin has always been good at being unseen…that is, until one fateful mistake brings her to the attention of the Duke of Voltur: the commander of the bloodiest battle in living memory, a man of legendary ruthlessness who is determined to be the power behind the throne. To this end, he has chosen Catwin to be a Shadow—spy, shield, and blade—to his niece Miriel as she works to catch the eye of the King.

But the Duke’s carefully laid plans are only a piece of the intrigue swirling within the royal court. Shadows gather: legacies of the centuries-long rivalries for power, old betrayals, the endless plots of the courtiers, and the murmur of rebellion in the southern provinces.

Greater forces than Catwin can imagine are massed against her, determined to eliminate Miriel and impose a new order of their own. If Catwin and Miriel are to survive, they must learn quickly who to trust, and when to turn their skills against the very people who have trained them...

A Tragic Warrior Lost in Two Worlds...

The war in Iraq ended for Lieutenant Freddie Williams when an IED explosion left his mind and body shattered. Once he was a skilled gamer and expert in virtual warfare.  Now he's a broken warrior, emerging from a medically induced coma to discover he's inhabiting two separate realities.  The first is his waking world of pain, family trials, and remorse--and slow rehabilitation through the tender care of Becky, his physical therapist. The second is a dark fantasy realm of quests, demons, and magic that Freddie enters when he sleeps.

In his dreams he is Frederick, Prince of Stormwind, who must make sense of his horrific visions in order to save his embattled kingdom from the monstrous Horde.  His only solace awaits him in the royal gardens, where the gentle words of the beautiful gardener, Rebecca, calm the storms in his soul. While in the conscious world, the severely wounded vet faces a strangely similar and equally perilous mission--a journey along a dark road haunted by demons of guilt and memory--and letting patient, loving Becky into his damaged and shuttered heart may be his only way back from Hell.

Drowning Mermaids
By Nadia Scrieva
B006Y06G8A

She is an elegant princess displaced from her home. He is a rough sea captain with a heart of gold...

To escape the war in her underwater kingdom, the noble daughter of a murdered king must flee to Alaska. Doing all she can to keep her younger sisters safe, Aazuria tries to assimilate and work among the Americans, with her feisty red-haired bodyguard at her side. This refuge holds pleasant surprises, for the princess meets a somber gentleman in a dark corner who promises to show her his world.

Trevain Murphy is a successful crab fisherman who has spent his life building an empire above the sea, but knows nothing of the greater empire beneath the surface. When a graceful dancer captures his attention, he becomes fascinated with her old-fashioned speech and unique mannerisms. Learning that her father has recently died, he cannot resist extending his kindness in offering to guide and protect her.

As it becomes clear that the dark-haired woman is much more than she seems, Trevain is unprepared to uncover the staggering secrets behind her innocent facade. Neither the captain nor the princess can imagine that their lives will become forcibly entwined as a common enemy threatens both of their worlds...
