Rothana Cover Reveal

Coming November 27th!

A new queen falls. A death lord rises. An ancient foe looms in the shadows. 

Sylvie Imanthiya is desperate to lead Faerie well and deepen the bond with her husband, former king Taylan Ashkalabek. But all hope of that vanishes when the Winter Solstice ceremony ends in disaster, stranding her and Taylan in the Deathrealm, and stripping the kingdom from her. 

With Faerie in chaos, Zad and Diza are separated once again: Zad to reconcile with an old mentor to stabilize the kingdom, and Diza to confront the nefarious Casimir in the mortal realm. But Casimir claims that a greater evil seeks to destroy both realms, an evil that Diza’s unique death magic can hold at bay—if she could only remember how. 

In the Deathrealm, Taylan is succumbing to the lure of specters from his past, and pushing away Sylvie’s love. Overwhelmed by decay and darkness, Sylvie must summon unexpected magic from the soul of Kyure to fight for her convictions and her husband’s heart. 

Shadows divide them. Their friends are in peril. If Sylvie fails, her marriage and her world will fall.

NEW RELEASE: Lies of Light (Darker Shade of Light 1)

Skin black as pitch, nails like talons…

A mysterious illness creeps through Acantha’s people—one that even the most powerful healers’ magic cannot touch. When the affliction proves to be something far more sinister and a family dies, Noora Duskbourne finds herself trapped. Blamed by the King for the incident, Noora’s only ally in her escape from the King’s fury is Vaeros, a man whose identity is shrouded in mystery. However, safety is not quite at hand as she is pursued by a Warder as skilled in the hunt as he is with the deadly arts of arcane combat. A path wrought with danger awaits Noora and Vaeros as they discover that something harrowing lingers in the light—an ancient darkness that refuses to remain forgotten.

The Displaced Review

The Displaced

by Frieda Watt

Marie Levesque is a young woman growing up on the shores of Ile Royale as the French Empire collapses on the battlefields. Britain and France are once again at war. The conflict has spilled over into the North America of 1744.

With the threat of war looming on the horizon, Marie struggles to find her place. As a young woman, her life is just beginning. Her friendship with Pierre promises of something more. But the British promise not only to defeat them but annihilate their very way of life.

As empires collide, Marie and Pierre are catapulted into a world they do not understand – a world of spies, treason, and revenge.

Not only must they fight to survive the war, but they must also fight to stay together despite the forces that threaten to tear them apart forever.

I don't normally read historical romances, but I must admit to enjoying this one. The Displaced offers a look into the daily lives of Marie and Pierre as they grow up and learn to survive through the atrocities of war and other torments that I won't spoil here in this review. I honestly didn't mind the slow paced scenes that were scattered throughout the story, never really finding them to be too drawn out. There were a few times where I felt some areas in time jumps could be expanded further upon, but it wasn't enough to distance me from the story at all. I felt the author gave a good look into what life was like. Unnecessary action wasn't forced on us all the time. It was quite a nice break from the fantasy and urban fantasy stories I generally read. And the details in everything from the attacks and treatments of injuries were quite good in my opinion.

There were several times I worried for Marie and Pierre as well as times I wanted to reach into the story and help them deal justice against certain other characters. I grew attached to Marie's brother Nic as the story progressed. At the end of the story, I truly wanted to see how they thrived with their new lives. Maybe one day I will be delighted with a look into how everything turned out for them, perhaps from the perspective of someone close to them. All in all, I enjoyed the book.

Ensaadi Review


by Elisabeth Wheatley

In the endless dunes of the Sandsea, strength is the only virtue and weakness is the only sin.

Ensaadi Talitha of Ilios is the warlord’s heir who dreams of peace. Finally, she has the chance to broker a marriage between two feuding tribes, but her efforts are shattered when her besotted cousin claims the bridegroom.

The treachery forces Talitha and her warriors to flee back to Ilios. Only through an uneasy alliance with a band of mercenary Dunedrifters and their enigmatic leader can her people hope to make it home.

With the lives of her warriors and the safety of her city at stake, Talitha will be forced to make the hardest decisions of her life. As an ensaadi, no matter what Talitha may want, a heart is a luxury and a conscience is a curse.

Ensaadi is a 30,000 word novella and first in the all-new Warlords of the 
Sandsea romance adventure series.

Okay, absolutely stunning cover aside, I loved this book. The story is fast paced and keeps you pulled in all the way through. Talitha is an incredibly strong character who can hold her own in many ways. I'm not a huge fan of "romance" stories, but this one offers so much more than that. There is this wonderful sense of danger through the entire book and even at the end you know that the threat is not completely gone. The characters were pretty well developed, even the secondary characters, such as Gilsazi.

My only complaint is that the story ended. Short stories do that to me; pulling me in and then leaving me craving so much more. This one was no exception in the least. I will eagerly be awaiting the next installment of the Warlords of the Sandsea series.
