Behind the Mask (Horstberg Saga Volume 1)
by Elizabeth D. Michaels 

When You’re Hiding For Your Life, What Do You Live For?


Abbi has the gift of dreams. But her uncanny ability to see glimpses of the future has no apparent purpose or meaning until a dream leads her to a man on the brink of despair and destruction. 

Cameron is a man without a name and without a country, framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Long ago forced into exile and believed dead, the passing of years have defaced him of all hope. 

The country of Horstberg suffers beneath the weight of tyranny, and only Cameron holds the secret that could see her ruler undone and restore the people to peace and prosperity. While revolution brews and whispers of treason threaten all that is dear to Abbi, she remains unaware of her own ability to answer a nation’s prayers. 

Trusting only her heart and the power of her dreams, Abbi gives all that she has to lead Cameron back into a civilized world, where love is real and freedom comes only in facing what hides behind the mask.

The God King (Heirs of the Fallen (Book 1))
by James A. West


The adventure begins here… 

Heroes are not born, they are forged in the fires of apocalypse... 

Mercenary Kian Valara wants nothing more than to retire from a life of blood and butchery. But when an arrogant princeling offers him enough gold to buy a throne, Kian straps on his sword for one last mission. And besides, what could be easier than guarding a prince who wants to sow his royal seed in every backwater fortress and village throughout the realm? 

Turns out, dying would have been easier. 

Kian discovers too late that the prince’s ambition has shattered the foundations of the world, and that he intends to remake all Creation. 

As the moons collide and the skies burn, Kian and his devastated company of warriors hound the demented prince across a nightmare realm. At every turn, Kian must fight for his life against demons escaped from the underworld, and those who they have transformed into blood-hungry terrors. 

Along the way, Kian meets a powerful and beautiful woman who prepares him for a battle he has small hope of winning. To triumph, Kian must summon all his skill and courage, he must sacrifice more than he ever imagined he could, and he must embrace the dark secret that binds him to the power-mad prince. 

Only one thing is certain: if Kian fails, the world of men will burn in the fires of apocalypse, and the God King will rule unchallenged and unpunished.

In A VOW OF GLORY, Thor embarks with his Legion friends on an epic quest into the vast wilds of the Empire to try to find the ancient Destiny Sword and save the Ring. Thor’s friendships deepen, as they journey to new places, face unexpected monsters and fight side by side in unimaginable battle. They encounter exotic lands, creatures and peoples beyond which they could have ever imagined, each step of their journey fraught with increasing danger. They will have to summon all their skills if they are to survive as they follow the trail of the thieves, deeper and deeper into the Empire. Their quest will bring them all the way into the heart of the Underworld, one of the seven realms of hell, where the undead rule and fields are lined with bones. As Thor must summon his powers, more than ever, he struggles to understand the nature of who he is. 

Back in the Ring, Gwendolyn must lead half of King’s Court to the Western stronghold of Silesia, an ancient city perched on the edge of the Canyon that has stood for one thousand years. Silesia’s fortifications have allowed it to survive every attack throughout every century—but it has never been faced with an assault by a leader like Andronicus, by an army like his million men. Gwendolyn learns what it means to be queen as she takes on a leadership role, Srog, Kolk, Brom, Steffen, Kendrick and Godfrey by her side, preparing to defend the city for the massive war to come. 

Meanwhile, Gareth is descending deeper into madness, trying to fend off a coup that would have him assassinated in King’s Court, while Erec fights for his life to save his love, Alistair and the Duke’s city of Savaria as the downed shield enables the wild creatures to invade. And Godfrey, wallowing in drink, will have to decide if he is ready to cast off his past and become the man his family expects him to be. 

As they all fight for their lives and as things seem as if they can’t get any worse, the story ends with two shocking twists. 

Will Gwendolyn survive the assault? Will Thor survive the Empire? Will the Destiny Sword be found?
