Book Spotlight – The Great Convergence – Thomas Kast #Sci-fi #Satire

Title: The Great Convergence

Author: Thomas Kast

Genre: Science fiction, satire

Main character description (short):

The unnamed narrator lives ten million years in the future. Stuck in a dead-end academic position, he time-travels to the year 2022 to find proof validating his research, but mainly to prevail over Scott — his arch-nemesis and a researcher at a competing university. The rivalry between the scientists quickly spins out of control. The Narrator and Scott remain focused on being right, even if this means endangering the universe’s fate.
Through the narrator’s flashbacks, the reader gets a glimpse of the world ten million years from now. It’s a world in which technology is indistinguishable from magic. It is also a world ruled by stupidity, jealousy, pettiness and shortsighted spite — much like our own.

Synopsis:

10.000.002 A.D. A cantankerous scholar slipping into obscurity is out for revenge. He time-travels to the year 2022 to stop his nemesis, Scott — a successful scientist at a competing university — from thwarting his research into the origin of a mysterious phenomenon, the Great Convergence. Cunning and ruthless, Scott will stop at nothing to defend his tenure track. The feud quickly spins out of control, and the damage to reality grows unchecked.

Caught in the crosshairs are three characters responsible for triggering the Great Convergence: an art-hating professional art critic who, unbeknownst to him, spontaneously switches between universes wreaking havoc as he goes; a talentless artist whose sculptures act as trans-universal portals; and a schizophrenic astrophysicist trying to avert the invasion of alternate versions of himself from different realities. As their paths converge, the apocalyptic event takes place, and the inescapable tragedy of human existence unfolds. 

Brief Excerpt 250 words:

There is an old legend which originated in the Lacerta Cantus Nebula. It explains how most universes got their shape. It goes like this:

A long time ago, there was a school for young Gods. At the beginning of each learning season, each God would get his universe to study and play with under the keen eye of the instructor. On balance, the universes were sturdy pieces of work. They could take a lot of damage, often reversible, but not always. And there was a lot of damaging going on, because not all the Gods treated their universes well.

The school programme was brief and much to the point. Gods graduated quickly and moved onto different matters with far-reaching consequences. They’d leave their universes behind, to be studied and played with by the next generation of deities. This would go on and on until the universes would become altogether unusable. What would happen to the battered, pass-me-down universe nobody wanted anymore? The legend doesn’t say.

Why should readers buy this book (50 words max)?

A subversive philosophical science fiction and social satire, the Great Convergence will take you out of your comfort zone, exposing the absurdity of many ethical and intellectual ideals. If you like the wry humour of Kurt Vonnegut and Douglas Adams or the philosophical insights of Stanislaw Lem, you’ll enjoy it too.

Book Spotlight – The Great Contagion – Jeff Chapman #DarkFantasy

Title: The Great Contagion: A Merliss Tale

Author: Jeff Chapman

Genre: Dark Fantasy

Main character description (short). Merliss is the spirit of a young girl trapped in the body of a cat. The magic that forced her spirit to reside in the cat has granted her an unusually long life. In her human life, Merliss was training to be a shaman. She uses her magic and herbal knowledge to fight disease and malevolent creatures.

Synopsis:

Plagues kill but Merliss has far more to fear than a disease.

Merliss is no ordinary cat. She’s a young girl’s spirit trapped in a cat’s body. While the magic that banished her has snatched away her ability to speak to humans, it has given her a life spanning millennia. For centuries she has lived with the cunning folk, assisting their efforts to heal the sick and ward off malevolent creatures. Now a bleeding sickness has thrown the medieval community into chaos.

The cunning man Hailaird and his apprentice Fendrel are in danger from the disease. The life Merliss has worked so long to build is in jeopardy. Before she entered the cat, she had trained to be a shaman. Do her centuries of experience hold a secret to a cure? But disease isn’t her only nemesis.

A pair of malevolent creatures have crossed the moor into the forest, threatening more havoc. With disease and monsters ravaging the land, Merliss is hard-pressed to survive. It couldn’t be worse, until a mob looking for a scapegoat turns its wrath on Merliss. Tooth and claw and magic may not be enough.

The Great Contagion is the gripping first novel in the dark fantasy Merliss Tales series. If you like strong and dynamic characters, rich description, magic and intrigue, then you’ll love Jeff Chapman’s Merliss Tales.

Brief Excerpt 250 words:

Torches glowed in the distance and flickered as the bearers passed behind trees.

“They almost caught me at the bridge,” Merliss said.

“I would brook no harm to you,” said Slynid. “You know that.”

“Not intentionally.” Consequences might write a different story.

“Promise me one thing. Promise me that you will go to faerie with me and learn what you could become.”

So was that all he wanted? She didn’t understand the greater game he was playing and she didn’t like being a piece on the board, but those cats were waiting. She hoped.

“I promise.”

The pooka grinned and Merliss sensed he had gotten what he wanted. She felt not a little used.

“I do this for you, Merliss. Now go!”

She ran. Wog’s power had restored her. She felt as fresh as if she had napped all day. Her senses were extra acute. At a full sprint, she avoided fallen branches, roots, and thin saplings as if she were walking. She leaped and sailed over a coney that she hadn’t seen flush until she passed it.

Behind her came a ferocious roar like a thousand bears made into one. She stopped. She had heard that voice before. On the riverbank during a storm. It roared again. But this was far louder and far wilder.

He had given her his last shift of the moon cycle. She certainly owed him. She felt certain he had scried and calculated his risk.

Next came the screams of men dying.

Why should readers buy this book (50 words max)?

The Great Contagion delivers a dark and gritty fantasy adventure from a cat’s eye view. If you’re looking for a unique fantasy experience featuring strong characters, magical creatures, and danger in a richly described world, The Great Contagion is the book for you.

Book Spotlight – Regen – Cassie Greutman #UrbanFantasy #Fantasy

Title: Regen       

Author: Cassie Greutman

Genre: YA Urban Fantasy

Main character description (short). Trish is a fae girl being raised in the human foster care system. Life has not gone well for her so far, but she has finally found a set of parents who love her. Hopefully for her, and not because they’ve found out what she is.

Synopsis: Trisha Penchant was supposed to go to Faerie as a kid, but her mom left her at a human foster home and disappeared, so she had no idea. Now the faerie council isn’t happy with her, and if she doesn’t help catch an escaped fae fugitive, she’ll lose her newfound home, with foster parents who actually care.

Brief Excerpt 250 words:

At least I had an idea why I was here. Not here as in this spot, but here as in this situation. Mom had said strange things would start happening when I turned sixteen, but she hadn’t mentioned me going all werewolf and showing up out in the middle of some forest with no memory of the last few hours.

Okay, nix the werewolf, I still had my clothes on.

Plus, I already knew what I was.

Mom had mentioned that nature loved the fae, but she hadn’t ever brought this up. It was supposed to mean big gardens and stuff, not Narnia and living trees. Suddenly a vine grabbed me, stopping a scream trying to rip from my mouth by covering it tightly. I struggled, but it just tightened

until I couldn’t move. The tears I’d been holding back flowed freely.

“What do you want?”

No answer, of course.

A second later a shadow moved by. A person. A big person.

Book Spotlight – Embrace of the Shade #RomanticFantasy #Fantasy

Title: Embrace of the Shade, Part One in the Pantracia Chronicles

Author: Amanda Muratoff and Kayla Hansen

Genre: Romantic High Fantasy

Main character description (short). Amarie and Kin are the two main characters. Amarie is cursed with magic she doesn’t understand how to use and seeks to protect it from those who would abuse it.  She is stubborn, independent, and totally badass with her weapons. Kin is more of an anti-hero. He serves a wicked master and seeks the same artifact Amarie does. He’s broody, dark, but defends those he loves with ferocity.

Synopsis: Amarie’s legendary magic could incinerate her enemies, but it’s her sword she trusts.

While running from the men who killed her family, she learns of an ancient text locked within the Great Library that might be the final key to understanding her curse. During the daring theft, a stranger inserts himself into her scheme. Kin’s roguish good looks and boundless charm threaten to distract her, but she has no intention of landing in the city jail.

Kin’s life, riddled with shadows and death, is as dark as his soul.

He embraces his power, given by a wicked master, but when he meets Amarie… She shatters the walls he’s built, piercing his solitude with vibrant light. But if she learns he hunts the power cursing her family, he will lose her forever.

Trusting him could risk her heart and her life, but it might be the only way to destroy the world’s most sinister evil. Unless Kin’s master finds her first…

Brief Excerpt 250 words:

“Impatient, aren’t we?” Kin thumbed through the book.

Amarie ground her teeth. “No, of course not. Why would I be? It’s not like I’m in a restricted section of the library with a stolen key and book or anything.”

“Unaccustomed to thievery?”

“Unaccustomed to getting caught.”

“We won’t get caught…” He paused, finger sliding down the page before he snapped the volume shut and slipped it into his cloak.

“No. I won’t get caught. And you won’t, either, if you keep up.” As she made her way down the stairs, she didn’t look back, able to hear his footsteps.

“Would now be a bad time to ask your name?”

She laughed. “I thought you heard my conversation with Caisus?”

“I did. But Samitha is too plain a name for you.”

She swore she could hear the smirk on his lips. “Did you have a better suggestion for a name I can use next time?”

He chuckled as they came to the bottom of the stairs, boots echoing against the tiles. “I won’t satisfy you with my suggestion until you give me your real name.”

Amarie stopped and spun to face him. She lifted her chin, a coy smile dancing on her face as she met his gaze. “Then, I suppose you shall leave me unsatisfied for our first felonious adventure. Doesn’t bode well for getting you a second. Much as I’d like to tell you it comes as a surprise…” She sighed. “Sadly, it doesn’t.”

Why should readers buy this book (50 words max)? It’s the start of something epic. A story that’s been in the making for twenty years, with such complexities to the plot that you won’t even notice until the later books. The dialogue, the interactions, it’s all so authentic because of the way we write. As we tell each character’s story, you’ll see through the books as their fates start to entwine. Overlap. Weave together. Like the fantasy avengers.

Book Spotlight – Amaskan’s Blood – Raven Oak #Fantasy

Title:  Amaskan’s Blood (Book I of the Boahim Trilogy)

Author:   Raven Oak

Genre:  Fantasy (Epic Fantasy)

Main character description (short):

Adelei is a master in her field, one of the feared Amaskans. She serves as a deliverer of Justice on behalf of the Thirteen. Young and impetuous, she’s sent into the hands of her birth father in order to protect the family from assassins. She’s forced to juggle her feelings about the “job” and her relatives while learning the truth about her adopted family.

Synopsis:

Adelei was a master in her field, one of the feared Order of Amaska. Those who were a danger to the Little Dozen Kingdoms wound up dead by her hand.

The Order sends her deep into the Kingdom of Alexander, away from her home in Sadai, and into the hands of the Order’s enemy, her birth father. The job is nothing short of a suicide mission, one serving no king, no god, and certainly not Justice. With no holy order to protect her, she tumbles dagger-first into the Boahim Senate’s political schemes and finds that magic is very much alive and well in the Little Dozen Kingdoms.

They say the truth depends on which side of the sword one stands. But they never said what to do when all the swords are pointing at you.

Brief Excerpt 250 words:

Ida closed her eyes. “—Our task was simple. While the King was busy with the enemy at his border, we’d take the child Uncle Goefrin arranged for us to ‘protect.’ I swear to ya, Leon, I didn’t know what they planned. No one said they were to kill ’er. I thought—”

“You thought what, exactly? You would kidnap my children and wife? My family? To do what exactly? Go for a walk in the woods? Who the hell are you to take part in such a—” This time when Leon shook her, the tears fled their prison and leapt across her cheeks. “That’s what you are—you’re Amaskan,” he whispered.

She winced when his fingers squeezed what little flesh clung to her bones, but she didn’t look away.

The quiet anger within left him breathless, yet he lifted her off her feet before he flung her to the floor with a snarl. “Who are you? What are you to crawl into my bed, into my heart? For ten years—”

The knock at the door startled them both. “Your Majesty?”

“Send the captain away,” she hissed from where she’d fallen, her robe torn where she’d tripped over it.

“Why should I do anything you ask?”

“Because I’m the only one who knows where your daughter is.”

Why should readers buy this book (50 words max)?

If you love stories about what it means to be family and what it means to seek justice for all, you’ll love this book.

Book Spotlight – Darkness Holds the Son #Fantasy

Title:

Darkness Holds the Son

Author:

D.L. Gardner

Genre:

Fantasy: Noble bright

Main character description (short).

Jareth, father of two and devoted husband, Jareth has been goat herding to please his wife and life down the stigma of his former occupation, i.e. mercenary. He’s in his early 30s, strong, able, and restless with a passion to protect his family and find the cure for his son.

Synopsis:

Darkness Holds the Son takes us to a small village named Tuluva where Jareth, an unemployed mercenary, and his wife and two children are raising goats to sustain themselves. Things go well for them until the land-baron of Ogress raises their taxes, forcing Jareth to pick up his crossbow and return to the battlefield. Jareth has an even more pressing problem than keeping his family out of debtor’s prison, though. His son Crispin has seizures that are caused by magic and if Jareth doesn’t find the source soon, it could be fatal as the boy hears voices instructing him to kill his father. On Jareth’s quest, he discovers that the same affliction is haunting all the children in the kingdom.

Join Jareth, his wife, and King Barin in this new adventure as they search the Neverworld and half of Casdamia to find and destroy that which has taken the youth of their world captive.

Brief Excerpt 250 words:

“What was it like?” Jareth asked as he held the boy’s hand. “What do you feel when this thing happens?”

“Everything around me, you, Mother, the fire, the room, it became a blur. I saw only that boy, but it wasn’t really him, not in the flesh. It was his ghost. He talked to me.”

“What did he say?”

Crispin glanced out the window and shook his head, his eyes red. “I can’t tell you.”

“You must, Son.”

The hesitancy bothered Jareth. What could a vision possibly tell his boy that would make him ashamed?

“Tell me, Crispin. We’ve always shared our thoughts. Let me carry this burden with you.”

Crispin trembled and wiped his face. Jareth squeezed his hand as the boy drew a breath.

“It’s not easy,” the boy said.

“I’m here for you.”

“He wanted me to tell you that you’re fighting for the wrong cause. He said you shouldn’t draw arms with the King’s soldiers, or the baron’s or any of the lords.”

“What?”

“He said I should convince you to join the insurrection that is growing throughout Casdamia and Potamia, if you know what’s good for you. He said our generation, the children they…” Crispin stopped and wiped his eyes.

“What about the children?”

“He said we will rise to conquer at a young age and slaughter all those who are in our way—that we’ll rule both the kingdoms, and he wants me to—”

“He wants you to do what?”

“Father. I can’t.”

“He wants you to do what, Crispin? Tell me. I need to know.”

His son looked deep into his eyes, tears welling in his own.

“He wants me to kill you if you don’t.”

Why should readers buy this book (50 words max)?

The Sword of Cho Nisi series, and particularly this book, is unique, filled with action, and is meant to make the reader think. What if your children were stolen away by a dark and magical force and there was little you could do to save them? Would you fight all odds to find them? It’s a story about parental courage and passion.

Title: Poisoned Heart: A Retelling of Snow White

Author: Abigail Manning

Genre: Romantic Fantasy

Main character description (short).

Princess Arabella is the fairest in all the land, and she is well aware. As a rich and beautiful princess, she is dreadfully spoiled and often refuses to acknowledge those below her, but will that change when she is forced out of the crown she’s learned to love?

Synopsis:

Princess Arabella is truly the fairest in all the land, and she knows it. With her pretty face, elaborate ball gowns, and glorious castle, she truly lives the perfect royal life. That is, until she is forced out of her home by a mysterious assassin.
With only the clothes on her back and the tiara on her head, Arabella flees from her castle in the dead of winter. As a last resort for shelter, Arabella takes up work in a laundry mill with seven other women. The once adored princess is now subjected to sleeping in piles of dirty laundry, but at least she is hidden. Well, she hopes so…
In the midst of her deadly game of hide-and-seek, she discovers that her kingdom is endangered by her absence. With the help of a dashing captain, a quirky noble, and her seven new companions, she must protect both her life and her kingdom. Will Arabella learn what true beauty is as she navigates her new life as a nameless commoner? While evil builds and secrets unfold, there may be more than her heart that’s poisoned.

Brief Excerpt 250 words: “I take great pride in hunting down my victims, but you were no challenge.” He eyed me with annoyance. He spoke as if he was disappointed that I was too easy to kill. “I desire more excitement in my hunt than a pompous brat can offer, so princess, I am offering you a chance at escape.”

            I gasped through my tears. It sounded like he was going to let me run just so he could catch me again, delaying my death long enough for me to potentially freeze in the cold on my own. My breathing grew unsteady as panic filled my every bone.

            “So, here’s my deal, princess. I’m going to let you run, and after twenty-four hours, I’m going to come looking for you, just like a game of hide and seek.” I couldn’t see his mouth, but I imagined a sick smile on his face. “If I can’t find you after fourteen days, then congratulations, you win. I’ll return to my kingdom and explain that you got away, but if I find you…” he raised the dagger to my throat and my breath hitched, “then I’ll finish the job I was assigned.” He dropped the dagger and took a step back. I allowed myself to breathe again, filling my lungs with the icy air.

 “Time starts now, princess. Better start running.”

 

Why should readers buy this book (50 words max)?

If you enjoy a good clean romance, paired with riveting adventure and peril then this series will be perfect for you! Poisoned Heart offers all the nostalgia of the Snow White you already know and love, while simultaneously twisting your expectations with endless turns.

Book Spotlight – Satchel Pong and the Great Migration #Steampunk #Fantasy – Adam G Fleming

Title: Satchel Pong and the Great Migration                                         

Author: Adam G. Fleming

Genre: Steampunk fantasy

Main character description (short).

Satchel Pong is a Meteorologist who realizes his world has been heating up slowly over the past decade. Under increasing pressure, the reluctant leader contacts the Dirigibles for advice and decides he must lead his people on a migration to safety.

Synopsis:                      

Throp Islanders Satchel Pong, Antoinette Xho, and Emil Ennis lead their people away from their home, hoping to take their agricultural expertise to work together with the Lor’l Folk to survive a burning planet, but first they must find them on a distant continent.

Brief Excerpt 250 words:

…Satchel Pong saw a boy of about fifteen approaching. The lad was in good condition, and when he arrived Pong noted that he was not even a bit out of breath. The boy fell in step and walked alongside Pong, who picked up his pace.

“You’re Magistrate Pong, aren’t you? Said the boy. Pong thought he caught a hint of admiration in the kid’s voice.

Pong drew himself up. To be sure, sometimes it was annoying to be recognized in public, but other times, it felt quite good. “I am.”

“Bully! Well I think you’re swell, at least, maybe I do. I reckon it’s grand to sit up in the Municipal Complex and shuffle papers for a terrific wage, but teacher says you aren’t doing your job. There’s been years now since you’ve issued a report. Mother says I was just a wee lad. Why?”

“Who is your teacher?” Pong asked.

“Mrs.—er, that’s neither here nor there,” said the boy.

“Oh, you’re a clever lad, aren’t you. What’s your name, then?”

“My name is Emil. Everyone calls me ‘Double E.’ Why haven’t you issued a report?”

“Look, son, the weather, it’s complicated. Hard to predict. I’m not a, a, whatchamacallit. A necromancer, a thaumaturge. There’s no magic to it. It’s pure science, but you can’t know, it’s inexact, without the proper data it—”

“You’re making excuses, aren’t you? I’ve seen people make excuses in class. You know what we say. Mumble, mumble, excuses a tubful, barrel and crate, your homework is late!”

 

Why should readers buy this book (50 words max)?

Buy this book because books 2 through 5 in the Satchel Pong Chronicles are also fantastic. The saga moves from migration across the world to the attempt at interstellar relocation. Quirky characters and odd world building and plenty of humor.

Title: Dark Dimensions

Main character description (short). Troy is Battlemaster for a clan of humans and vampires. He works with the Clan Leader, Vlad, to ensure safety of the entire clan during battles and negotiations.

Synopsis: A clan of vampires and humans is lost in the dimensions due to a failed experiment. They must fight other clans and mad scientists before they are able to control their travel and head for their home dimension.

Brief Excerpt 250 words:

Vlad stood there in all his magnificence, his power emanating all the way to

where I lay on the table. Dmetri and Vlad both looked surprised at the presence of the

other. Vlad spoke, a shock startling me at his words. “Dmetri, I was wondering when we

would meet you. What are you doing with a member of my clan?”

Dmetri’s grin returned. “Stealing him,” he responded and turned all his vampiric

attention toward Vlad.

As he released me I wrenched the injector out of my arm and flung myself from

the table scrambling to the farthest corner from the arguing clan leaders ignoring the

pain it caused.

“It’s good to see you, Vlad. Although I guess I should have expected it,

considering I have your son here.” He paused before continuing on. “He is your son,

isn’t he? Although it’s rather odd. I killed you both some time ago.”

Vlad started with surprise at Dmetri’s words but recovered to respond. “I am a

different Vlad. I am sure my — son — has told you what has happened.”

A shock thudded through me as Vlad confirmed what Dmetri had just said.

“Yes, he did. I didn’t believe him at first, but seeing you here like this makes me

realise he was telling the truth. Your envoy from years ago was enjoyable, by the way.”

“I have not sent any envoys to you. I am not interested in getting involved in your

petty war.”

Why should readers buy this book (50 words max)? People should read this book because it is full of life and is an entertaining delight that will allow people time away from the worries of life.
