From Zumaya Thresholds – The Talisman of Zandria

The Talisman of Zandria

by Christine Norris

The Talisman of Zandria

 

 

Adventure happens when you least expect it

Ivy Peterson is Less-Than-Ordinary. She’s so very Less-than-Ordinary that sometimes she feels invisible. She is also Not Very Brave.

But part of her wishes she could be something More, that something Extraordinary and Completely Unusual would happen. What she forgets about wishes is that they do sometimes come true.

Ivy accidentally falls into Zandria, a magical world that exists just outside her own. And she’s trapped there because someone has stolen the Talisman of Zandria, a magical amulet that controls the five gates the worlds. She and her new friends—the wizard Arden, his young apprentice Connor, and a pair of fairies—set off on a quest to recover the Talisman, a journey of discovery that will change Ivy in ways she never could have imagined.

Purchase the trade paperback from Amazon as well as in ebook for Kindle and NOOK.

Zumaya Thresholds Imprint – The Secret of My-Myst

The Secret of My-Myst by Mike DiCerto

There’s a little bit of good in the worst of us

Rupert Starbright, separated from his guide and protector Dream Weaver, travels the dangerous Wildness with two wild boys who have vowed to help Murkus defeat Queen Chroma and conquer Far-Myst. Separated from the boy who calls himself Xerks, Rupert and the other boy, who is none other than Dream Weaver’s son Quix, stumble on a gateway to a land of mystery—My-Myst, the land of the dreaded Truseens.

As Murkus, now a creature half man and half dragon, sucks all the joy and color from Far-Myst with his deadly dark sun, Rupert decides he must confront his enemy and ask him why he so hates imagination and its wonders because no one else is willing to do it.

Is there something good buried deep within the black heart of the Dragon Lord? And are Rupert’s faith and imagination strong enough to find it and keep Far-Myst from becoming another Graysland?

Purchase the trade paperback from Amazon or Barnes and Noble, and in ebook for Kindle and NOOK.

Vassal of El by Gloria Oliver

He tried to forget his past, but it wouldn’t forget him

At eleven, Torren was violently torn from his family and his people and left for dead, a cripple in more ways than one. For the next few years, he traveled alone, making few friends.Then, one night, a terrified young woman fleeing for her life stumbles into his camp, and his life once again takes new direction. As he reluctantly takes responsibility for getting her to safety, his past comes back to haunt him in a way that is painfully ironic.

Against both his will and his better judgment, he must return to the place he had thought lost to him forever if he is to make good on his promise to keep his charge safe from harm.

Second Coming? Or Antichrist?Father Sean McCauley has a dilemma–he loves his work as a Roman Catholic priest, but part of him yearns for a wife and family like his sister Kate’s. Torn between his calling and his heart’s desire, he willingly accepts an assignment to investigate a charismatic evangelist named Joseph, hoping to find an answer long the way.Who is the handsome, enigmatic man whose message is so powerful people flock to him by the thousands, leaving home and work to live in his self-sustaining communities all across the US? Why, despite Joseph’s altruism and faith, does Sean suspect he harbors something dark and evil?

Whom the gods make mad must be destroyed

 

Azdrefel is once again imprisoned in the infinite void of the Everdark, but before anyone can celebrate victory his high priest engulfs an unprepared kingdom of Oestrand in a war it can’t hope to win. With its king hidden in the Sorcerer’s Tower, the land falls under the savage and bloody hand of the Servants.

But Hasdrugon isn’t content to rule. He wants vengeance on those who sent his god into exile, and there are traitors who are only too willing to help him.

In the conclusion of the Everdark Wars trilogy, Perian Dawnstar and Randrick alt Harbinnen are left with a task incomplete and an implacable enemy whose plans for them would make nightmares seem pleasant.
