The world has changed and humans are an endangered species. 

After centuries of war famine and plague, a new society has risen and grown. Magical races, such as fae, vampires, magi, and weres, have joined forces to ensure everyone’s survival by creating the highest order council and the new world laws. Unfortunately, the cost of survival could be the freedom to be with someone you love. 

Sidney is on the edge of womanhood. Soon she’ll accept her birth right as lady of her people, the magi of San Diego. However, she is torn between her duty and heart. 

Can she have both or will she have to choose between her people or the feelings she’s kept secret for years?

Hidden in the beauty of a cluster of islands, unbeknownst to humans, a supernatural war rages. The Guardians, protectors of the Nexxus and the Goddess Selene, fight daily to ensure the survival of all races. Hidden agendas, supernatural politics, and sins of the past threaten to endanger the very world they all strive to protect. Led by two families who must embrace their destinies, the Guardians of Tempest must now step up to lead their races to victory.

About the Authors: 

S.C. Storm was born in Austin, Texas. She wrote poems as a hobby when she was in school but motherhood took over and she stopped. Many years later, she met her bestie Rena Marin online. After some time, Tempest was born.
Married to the love of her life, Willie, for 28 years, between them, they have six children  and ten grandchildren.  Recently widowed, she lives in Kyle, Texas spending her time helping their youngest daughter continue her dads business, taking care of her youngest son and her four cats, babysitting grandkids and writing.

Rena Marin is happily married to her soul mate, Daniel. They have two children, Cody and Amber. She was born and raised in Newport, Tn. The family still lives in the beautiful, mountain town today.
As a young girl she discovered a love for reading. By the time she was in middle school, she realized that love also included writing. Rena began writing short stories and never stopped. She still has notebooks filled with stories from back in those days. It has been a long time dream of hers to have published works. Rena has always loved reading and writing anything supernatural, paranormal, or fantasy. She is also a bit of a horror buff so to be honest there is no telling what genres she may find myself attempting.
Rena Marin’s first published work is written with her “bestie”, S.C. Storm. The two met online many years ago and developed the world of Tempest Isle as a release from everyday life. Amazingly it turned into so much more. Now, they have a series of books they want to share with the world in hopes that you fall in love with the “peeps” of Tempest Isle as much as they have.

The Brothers Three by Layton Green

2FB7A648-2B3A-46D0-8CD8-4D694167A843-486-0000010B79692948

New Orleans, Louisiana

Will works evenings at Medieval Nights, a joust-themed dinner theater. A few nights a week, to help his finances, he engages in staged battles with a group of fellow under-achieving twenty-somethings. To Will’s disappointment, he knows this is as close to Middle Earth as he will ever get. His brother, Caleb, is a bartender at the House of Spirits, and Val is the oldest brother and a corporate lawyer. Will’s routine includes two drinks at the House of Spirits, a little online gaming, then asleep by midnight, so he can get to his day job as a general contractor’s assistant.

Will’s unfortunate tendency towards severe panic attacks precludes him from any career with danger or stress. Because of this, the closest he gets to excitement is with Lance Wesson, his high school friend, who is a police officer. One evening during Will’s ride-along, they receive a call about a dog howling in the cemetery. Thinking this could be interesting, even Will gets out of the car. As they move through the headstones the howling dog can be heard and is suddenly directly in front of Will, leaping on him with chomping teeth. Lance fires his pistol and the monster runs. The young men give chase and see it disappear in the direction of the nearest home, a huge two-story with a wrap-around porch. At first, it seems to be abandoned, until a man opens the door, dressed as an eighteenth-century French aristocrat, reminding Will of a costume party. During their conversation they learn absolutely nothing, other than the fact that this situation is starting to creep Will out.

The next night, having nothing to occupy his mind, Will decides to spy on the freaky guy in the mansion. Climbing a tree and using his binoculars, he sees the man in a room lined with shelves, crammed with books and the occasional skull. Two people enter, dressed in white, and begin dusting and sweeping. Only they’re not people dressed in white; they are skeletons busily cleaning. Suddenly, one turns towards the window and Will can sense that he’s been noticed. The man jumps to his feet and rushes to the window, just as Will’s branch gives way with a loud crack.

Charles Zalinkski, a friend of the brothers’ father, calls Will and requests a meeting with all the Blackwood brothers, which Will finds odd, but lately there seems to be a lot of weird things going around. Upon meeting with Charles, they are shocked and disbelieving when he explains he is a member of an organization that studies magic. Also, he has promised their father to watch over them if there came a time that the boys needed to know more of their circumstances, and just perhaps some of their talents. Charles explains their father was a wizard and from another world. As Charles tries to tell them more about their father, the back door of the bar is flung open, as the man from the cemetery comes striding into the parking lot carrying a bag of bones.

Thus begins the adventure of a lifetime.

This is an intriguing story with lots of action. One thing with fantasy is that the author can take the story almost anywhere, stretching the reader’s imagination. It’s a long story at three-hundred and thirty-three pages, but it never drags. I enjoyed the interaction between the characters and, of course, Will’s mental health issue is a real attention grabber. Naturally, they will visit another world and that is total entertainment, as they adjust to being Beginners in the arena of magic. This is a great read and I think most of us will enjoy this book.

The rating:

  • Genre and general reading age – This is YA fantasy. Both adults and teens will appreciate it.
  • Level of sexuality – Low.
  • Is there graphic language? Very little.
  • Did I cry? No.
  • Did I laugh? Sometimes.
  • Is this part of a series? Yes, this is book one of the Blackwood Saga.
  • Level of character development – I found them to be fairly well-developed and obviously some of the main characters will be embellished in the sequel.

I gladly give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars.

New Release: When I’m Dead by Erin Lee

WHEN I'M DEAD

When I’m Dead by Erin Lee is Live!!!

 

*Where will Violet’s plan and actions take her? Will she finally get her message across? What will they think of her, when she’s dead? Will they even notice?*

 

Available on Amazon and Kindle – hyperurl.co/cfzac2

Violet Hoffman is a planner. She’s had more than enough time—especially on holidays—to think this through. There’s really no point in turning back. Now, armed with a plan, Violet only needs to pull the trigger. She runs through her list of essentials: Motel room, check. Bottle of pills, check. Razor blades, check. Knife, yup. Purpose, check. Voice ready to be heard. Got it. Revenge, coming right up.

Violet is ready. After all, she decides, everyone is born for a reason. For most of her life, she’s been different. Since she was nine years old, she’s carried a secret that made it impossible for her to be normal. For a decade, she’s been torn between loyalties and healing. But now, finally an adult, Violet can let it all out. And it isn’t going to be pretty. But then again, being ‘pretty’ and ‘special’ really aren’t what they’re cracked up to be.

When I’m Dead is the story of an eighteen-year-old abuse victim alienated by her family. Ignored by a faulty system and shuffled from placement to placement, Violet is finally old enough to be heard. Sometimes, the best messages are given without words. And Violet’s always been a person of action. Where will Violet’s plan and actions take her? Will she finally get her message across? What will they think of her, when she’s dead? Will they even notice?
