Saint Elm's Deep (The Legend of Vanx Malic Book 3) Saint Elm's Deep (The Legend of Vanx Malic Book 3) 4.6 stars / 89 reviews Here is what people are saying about Vanx Malic:I felt like I was in a whole new world reading this book... The storyline was also amazing. I would recommend anyone who loves fantasy books to read this as you will def be swept into this world! - Avid Reader Reviews (*Review of Through the Wildwood, Book One)"You've (Mathias) already achieved much, much more than so many people who like to think of themselves as writers." -- @Gollancz The Deputy Publishing Director of SF, Fantasy & Horror list of the Orion Publishing Group."When reading this book, I was reminded of several other fantasy novels that I have read previously. The author's style is individual, but it has the flavor of a Tolkien novel, or possibly Robert Jordan. I detected a great amount of affection in his deliverance of the characters, and their progress throughout the story was handled well. I must say that Vanx is quite a likeable rogue, and the way that the story begins certainly grabs the reader, pulling them into the story whether they like it, or not."-- Kindle Review (*Review of Through the Wildwood, Book One)Entertaining, action packed, and witty. Overall a good second book that starts where the first left off and I look forward to the next. - Jacob (Review of Dragon Isle, Book Two)Snippet from Saint Elm's Deep, The Legend of Vanx Malic Book III:“I’ve been listening to all your spook talk for days,” Kegger said quite clearly, but with a caravaneers crudeness to his words. All of the gargan accent that had been in his voice when speaking of knives and bows, during his battling with Chelda, was gone, as if it had never been there. “My orders were to get you to the Lurr and wait for you to come out.” He hefted his axe and thumbed the edge he’d been sharpening nightly at the fire. “I’ve got a good bit of unfinished business in them woods myself. Twern’t no frost bite that took his limbs. The tree that had my brother was real. I swear it. I had to cut him from it. It was foul smelling, and as evil as the Letch itself. It bled thick red blood, just like you or I would, where my ax struck. I hurt it, and it screamed right at me before it turned Sean loose. It weren’t no magic fairy tree. This was as black and cold as the Letcher’s own wrath.” “But you saw no sign of the fae in the Lurr Forest?” Gallarael asked.“If I did, I didn’t know what it was,” Kegger chuckled. “Deer, elk, bear, and wolf. I know their sign well, but I’ve never seen a fairy turd, much less been inclined to look for one.”The Legend of Vanx Malic continues with Book Three, "Saint Elm's Deep"After finding a map on a grueling hunt, Vanx and his new companions decide to travel deep into the Bitterpeaks, where a fabled hoar witch's crystal palace supposedly sits hidden in a valley called Saint Elm's Deep. The story deepens, as we delve into Vanx's past and the future of as unlikely a group of heroes as you will ever find. Action and adventure, drama and thrills, and a barrel keg full of fantasy adventure await readers in Saint Elm's Deep, the third installment of The Legend of Vanx Malic.Look for book four, "That Frigid Fargin' Witch" in early 2014.Other titles by M.

The Physics Of The Dead - A Supernatural Mystery Novel The Physics Of The Dead - A Supernatural Mystery Novel 4.6 stars / 40 reviews THE NEW NOVEL FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE #1 BESTSELLER THE STONE MAN PRAISE FOR LUKE SMITHERD'S WRITING: "... a novel that intrigues, enthralls, horrifies, thrills, and hits the reader with an emotional resonance as only the best stories can." - Ain't It Cool "... strong characterization, moral quandaries, mystery, and a whole lot of tense moments. Reading the final sentence was truly a bittersweet moment." -, Hugo award-winning website What do the dead do when they can't leave...and don't know why? The afterlife doesn't come with a manual. In fact, Hart and Bowler (two ordinary, but dead men) have had to work out the rules of their new existence for themselves. It's that fact (along with being unable to leave the boundaries of their city centre, unable to communicate with the other lost souls, unable to rest in case The Beast should catch up to them, unable to even sleep) that makes getting out of their situation a priority. But Hart and Bowler don't know why they're there in the first place, and if they ever want to leave, they will have to find all the answers in order to understand the physics of the dead: What are the strange, glowing objects that pass across the sky? Who are the living people surrounded by a blue glow? What are their physical limitations in that place, and have they fully explored the possibilities of what they can do? Time is running out; their afterlife was never supposed to be this way, and if they don't make it out soon, they're destined to end up like the others. Insane, and alone forever... A full-length novel. 90,000 words; from the author of the Amazon UK #1 Horror Bestseller, 'The Stone Man.' Praise for Luke Smitherd: PRAISE FOR LUKE SMITHERD: "Fantastically written characters who make you care about them right from the off." - Andy Pettifer "It was one of those books where you tell yourself you will read just one more page, then look at the clock and realise that it's 2 hours later. I would thoroughly recommend it" - Elaine Hosegood "I have owned a Kindle for about 2 years and downloaded some excellent books for very little cost but Luke Smitherd's works beat the lot" - Silversmith, Amazon UK Review "As soon as I started reading I was completely sucked in, which very rarely happens for me. I couldn't wait to get home and read it each night. I laughed. I cried. I did actual real life gasps of horror." - Katie, Amazon Review "I spend a lot of time trawling through the kindle book store looking for cheap books, relying on reviews to make my purchases. I have come across some less than average books using this method, but also some real gems. This book definitely falls into the latter category. It had me gripped from page one."- Steve Sut, Amazon UK Review "This story could, probably should, be made into a movie at some point. I honestly have to believe that Smitherd should contact a producer/director and make a fabulous movie deal. Totally enjoyed the read." - Bonnie Gleckler Clark, Goodreads 2011-04-14 266 15152

The Cornerstone: A Fast Paced Fantasy Adventure The Cornerstone: A Fast Paced Fantasy Adventure 3.8 stars / 17 reviews THE CORNERSTONE A fast-paced fantasy adventure from Nick Spalding, the bestselling author of the smash hit romantic comedy Love... From Both Sides and its sequels Love... And Sleepless Nights & Love... Under Different Skies. A great book will transport you to another world... literally, if you're not careful. On a gloomy Thursday afternoon, Max Bloom enters his local library in a last ditch attempt to stave off an epic case of teenage boredom. Among the hushed stacks he discovers The Cornerstone, an ancient book tucked away on a dusty, forgotten shelf. Opening the cover, Max is instantly transported to an alternate dimension full of things intent on killing him - thus avoiding boredom with remarkable success. He meets a beautiful girl called Merelie (brilliant), who tells him he could be a Wordsmith, a sorcerer able to craft magic from the written word itself, one strong enough to save both their worlds from the Dwellers - hideous monsters from beyond the universe (not so brilliant). This all sounds completely unbelievable. The kind of thing you'd read in a fantasy novel. But The Cornerstone doesn't lie... and the danger is very real. In a world threatened by monsters, where books are worshipped and powerful magic exists, Max Bloom must make a choice: close The Cornerstone and run home - or trust Merelie, become a Wordsmith, and save two worlds from certain destruction... *** Reviews for Nick Spalding & The Cornerstone: 'Spalding made headlines last year when Amazon revealed he was one of their best selling authors, selling over 400,000 copies on Kindle.

A Chance Beginning: Book One of the Shadow's Fire Trilogy A Chance Beginning: Book One of the Shadow's Fire Trilogy 5.0 stars / 4 reviews Erik Eleodum is a simple man. He doesn’t want to be a hero. He doesn’t need fame or fortune. He is content farming his family’s homestead in northern Hthgolthane and raising a simple family, like his father, for the rest of his life. In fact, adventure is the last thing on his mind. Befel, Erik’s brother, and Bryon, his cousin, can’t think of anything worse than farming for the rest of their lives. They want to be heroes. They want fame and fortune. They want to leave their families and go east, to the country of Golgolithul, where they are sure to find easy wealth and great adventure. But when these three young men leave their farmstead, they quickly discover the world is not so simple, not so easy. Most fortune is laden with treachery, fame must be earned with blood, and adventures are rarely grand. Ideas of grandeur are crushed and the road east is hard. To get there, these men must ultimately sell their swords and become friends with thieves, dwarves, soldiers, and mercenaries well past their prime. They battle a band of ruthless slavers, slip past assassins, and experience the deadly consequences of black magic. Will Erik ever be able to return to the simple life? Will he unwittingly become famous, become rich, become a hero? Or, will he even survive? Often the deeds of those deemed smaller, either in stature or status, go uncounted by chroniclers of history. Yet, it is these deeds that repeatedly change the course of history. For every hero whose feats minstrels sing, there were fifty men following his stead, giving blood and sweat just as he did; and because they were not the first to return from a long voyage away, or perhaps they did not return at all, their glories are never sung. This is a story about those men who would only be known in the local legends, who would have been forgotten by time save for a small bit of chance. Chance, Fate, Destiny, Dumb Luck; all these and more, and then maybe none of these things, are the reasons a young man can go from a farmer’s son, a boy of lowly birth born with dirt on his face, to a great warrior, a kingly knight, a dragon slayer. Three young farmers, tired of plowing endless fields from sunrise to sunset, gave up all they knew to pursue fame, pursue riches. Their crying mothers at their backs and the unknown ahead of them, they worked in pigsties, slept in the alleys of outskirt cities, traveled with strangers and shed blood unwillingly. They trusted men they should not have trusted, and did not trust those they should have. These young men who left their way of life for fame and glory would soon learn, as most young men full of grand ideas and just ideals do, the world is not what they thought it to be. 2014-05-02 336 33789

Sons of Light Sons of Light 4.8 stars / 4 reviews Throughout history, from the Oracle at Delphi to Native American shamans, there have always been a few individuals able to see further than the rest of us. They had within themselves the wisdom and the ability to see the future. These seers used their gifts to aid, to counsel, and to heal. Now, though, is a new age, and most seers have given up on, or forgotten their former knowledge in the face of science and modern medicine. Now numbering only a few hundred, one of these modern day seers resents what has become of them over the years and longs to see their former place of honor in society restored—and to go even further than that. Billionaire businessman and philanthropist Carl Flint is Chairman & CEO of Flint Corp., a multinational conglomerate and the founder of a secretive university in the Rocky Mountains that is identifying and training young seers for a new purpose only he knows. Glen Quinn is one of these students, and during his first year he goes on an extraordinary journey that takes him to Australia and back in pursuit of an ancient Aboriginal seer artifact purported to extend life.

Keeper of the Violet Fire Keeper of the Violet Fire 4.7 stars / 3 reviews Upon the beautiful planet of Kaliya, the Khurran (eight foot tall sloth-like folks) live peaceful lives in the trees and mountains. Many of the Khurran of Wild Mountain still worship Jesh, the goddess of their mountain, and some remember when she walked amongst the mortals. After thousands of years another god awakens, though not one that any living being would worship. He is Rokkhu, born of darkness, blight on the face of Kaliya. Leaf, a young Khurran, is beginning to learn the truth of who he truly is, for he is a bodhisattva: a being of light, reincarnated once again to counter the forces of darkness that emerge in the world. Reluctant to disrupt his peaceful and quiet life upon the mountain, he nonetheless must face his truth and look for other bodhisattvas in the world to teach him, for he has been chosen to stop the dark god, Rokkhu, and restore safety to the mortals and gods alike. Journeying through a world in which the spirits and gods interact with the mortals, Leaf and his companions must unravel a spiral of dark deeds that began thousands of years ago, and that have only begun to come to their fruition. 2014-01-07 230 274315

5. of Shadow 5. of Shadow 4.3 stars / 3 reviews The supreme protectors of light dwell in the great void of eternal dark. Known as Entites, the greater beings currently police our galaxy in search of stars on the brink of destruction. Racing to harvest enough light to replenish a sun’s finality, the amazing light reapers collect precious beam energies and contain them into thin radiant strands called “starfire pickets.” Starfire is the key to a sun’s salvation, and normally the voiders rescue failing balls of fire by “re-seeding” the core with a generous supply of starfire pickets. In turn, the sun’s refilled life gives several decades or even centuries of time for a thriving culture to evolve their technology to a point of self-serving salvation. In other words, with enough time, an entire population can save itself either by searching for a new home world, or by learning to live without their sun because of their evolved knowledge. For ages the ultimate secret society has thrived as invisible saviors to countless worlds without detection. The rules abruptly change however when the greatest of the light harvesters, the wolf of legend, is framed for the most abhorrent crime within the Entite province. Ze’ev Vasuman, the wolf and recognized shadow god to all Entites, must vindicate his long-standing heroic name by winning the greatest arena contest the voiders have ever witnessed. Earth, Nepenthe, and the world of the great shadow cats face complete destruction unless the wolf can miraculously find a way to save the dying star Volstaire.Ze’ev faces not only an outraged race of super beings, but is on the brink of unlocking astonishing secrets to some of the most feared mysteries the Entites keep only in whispers. Gods can die too, and as time races to a critical stage, only one will survive the dangerous road to redemption. 2013-03-13 232 230203

From Both Sides and its sequels Love... And Sleepless Nights & Love... Under Different Skies. From the pages of the past, a new threat to Max Bloom rises in The Chapter Lands... A year after his life became a lot less boring (and a lot more dangerous, if he's being honest) Max Bloom finds himself the unwanted centre of attention at the spectacular Chapter Lands Wordmeet, a magical competition laid on in his honour - whether he likes it or not. This unfortunately means having to wear an uncomfortable suit and talk politely to other people; two things that Max does not excel at.

He kills an innocent boy and threatens Merelie's life before Max manages to intervene. Who is this interloper? What does he want? Why is he so intent on killing? Only The Cornerstone can provide the answers, and on its pages it reveals a single name... Venhaligan . So begins the hunt for a murderous ghost from the past with connections to The Cornerstone, and inexplicably to Max's family.

The Nazarene (Sui Generis Book 1) The Nazarene (Sui Generis Book 1) 5.0 stars / 1 reviews The universe maintains a complex, multidimensional flow that dictates the existence of all beings. From planet to planet, galaxy to galaxy, the masters of universal energy flow are manifest as Ordered magi. The greatest powers of creation and destruction belong to a select few. Every mage’s fate is predetermined. Milas is a destroyer of worlds. First and only daughter of the Rhonan Dynasty, Milas is fated into service within the Nex Order by birth, but years of careful deception kept her from the Order's eye, fueled by fears of her ultimate purpose. Once well past the age of proper induction, the Rhonan shelter their wayward daughter in a cloistered temple where she is soon discovered by Vitruvius Ramaeus, a senior Clerical mage whose highest aspiration has been finding and training the next fated Exodus Cleric for the Ecumenical Clerici. Milas’ fiery induction into the Nex Order sets into motion the journey of her lengthy, darkened trials of apprenticeship. Her unusual talents soon become apparent beneath Ramaeus’ direction, awakening within her the power that threatens to consume entire planets- the power the Clerici seeks to exploit at any cost.

The Horror of Drackenstein (Creepy and Hatboy Book 1) The Horror of Drackenstein (Creepy and Hatboy Book 1) 0 stars / 0 reviews Duo they might be. Dynamic, they're not. When the neighbourhood is invaded by the obviously evil Drackenstein, Creepy and Hatboy are forced into considering taking action. Not that they're totally unfamiliar with action. After all, they've diced over many a Warhammer game. They've also read every Batman comic there is. All while fending off wave after wave of invading hordes of delicious choc-coated licorice aliens. Yet, while they've vanquished some of the best snacks in town, the prospect of actually getting off the couch to do battle with a genuine arch-villain of doom sounds more daunting than the time Hatboy got caught trying to "borrow" Timelord technology. But now the clock is ticking. Zombies are looting Ninjagirl's underpants. And rumours abound of a Sofamaster 20,000 being kept hostage in Drackentein's basement. So he needs to be stopped before he does whatever it is arch-villains do if they're not defeated by efficient super-sidekicks. It's up to Creepy and Hatboy to save the day. Right after 'Star Trek: Voyager', of course. 2013-03-30 330 188152
