Until one day, she comes across a male cougar caught in a trap.
Josh and Dylann. Will Dylann be able to heal Josh of both the mental and physical scars inflicted by those wanting to force him to change to a creature he had not believed existed? In return, will Josh be able to help the apparently free-spirited Dylann understand the true meaning of freedom? Will Dylann be able to convince her Marine that he can embody the spirit of Toho, the Spirit of the Cougar? Will Josh help Dylann to understand what that spirit can mean to her?

On the planet of Tonath, a man awakens. His memory is gone and he is attacked by creatures that can only be given the name greenies. Surviving that. the man again awakes in another strange place. People, not quite the same as him are trying to help the man who now is going by the name Loren. The man is going to find the world he is in is in trouble, but he will survive. The story takes readers into the life of Loren and a science fiction adventure that is hard to put down.

In the center of a magical world there grows a beautiful and terrible chasm of climbing plants. On one side of the Ivy Wall we find the hell-of-Tyndra, on the other, the heaven-of-Ardnyt. But legend has it that in the middle…lives a preternatural beast that imprisons and tortures the children from both sides.
When the war against time begins, Azza will have to cross over the Ivy Wall, something that has never been done before by a living being. But if she does make it through, she just might discover who she really is and how she became trapped in this alternate reality.
A fairytale at heart, this is the first chapter in the epic saga of the youngest and most fickle of the four Norn Sisters. The same feisty immortal creature who must escape her inherent inner darkness to learn the meaning of love.
A veritable palindrome from start to finish, the narrative of Where Tyndra Turns to Ardnyt journeys through duality to discover what shocking truths emerge when up becomes down, life becomes death, suffering becomes release, and the most unexpected endings become the most surprising beginnings.
Welcome to a place where forwards and backwards are exactly the same direction. Here Where Tyndra Turns to Ardnyt.
I first read this story as part of the Winter Lites collection. “Where Tyndra Turns to Ardnyt” is a true palindrome, a world mirrored backward and forward. This story is a standout reminiscent of the best works of Neil Gaiman and Charles De Lint, with the beauty of your favorite fairy tale and the brilliance of your favorite classic. It’s impossible not to fall in love with Azza as you share her journey. I can’t wait for the next novella to be released!
SAM IS LOOKING TO ESCAPE TOMS CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE –ALL HE NEEDS IS EVIDENCE TO BUY HIS WAY OUT–CAN HE DO IT OR WILL HE DIE TRYING?
Tom doesn’t have employees, it’s more akin to prisoners. Sam Garrison wants his freedom, but the price is stiff. He stumbled on something which could free him. If he fails, Tom’s retribution could be too horrid to even consider. Death isn’t the least of it. The little drive packs a big punch, but it is enough to buy Sam’s freedom?

“For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.” -Martin Luther
There’s a thread of unity amid battles, gunfights and arguments that is woven through this Sci-Fi Western novel from the beginning until the end. These factions are Silver or Green, something the inhabitants of Tonath find disheartening, because the disagreements about the correct star path leads to war and suffering. One character by the name of Brother Amos persists. As a Seeker, he’s rather impartial to war. In his opinion, a good map of the stars will provide clear answers and the best Pathway. Only time will tell which side, is correct about their assumptions. There are so many stars that need to be charted and many things to learn. We find him traveling with a group of Wayfarers, moving as far away from danger as possible. Among the Wayfarers is Venta, a single woman with a dream about building a refuge for divorced women called the Haven–and Jack Donald–a man with two hearts–from Thalia—another planet–who loves her. They need to escape the Green Marauders, Bentz and the Mechs so that Brother Amos can build an institute of his own and say, “We are neither Silver, nor Green. We are the Silver and the Green.”
Winning battles means Ink honors, prestige, and life itself. …Yet nobody understands what losing truly means.
On another planet two hundred years in the future, twenty-one-year-old Isla Jane struggles helplessly to figure out who she is and what her world really means. Marked with a forbidden tattoo of the rising sun, she is a natural champion of humanity and a gifted warrior in Heats– lavish battles fought in the conjoined minds of the participants for the morbid amusement of the masses.
Despite Isla’s desire to fade into the background, she emerges as an obvious leader of her people when the senseless assassination of a youth forces her to face the truth. Her volatile world, disguised by its elaborate battles and constant mayhem, is a prison without bars and a coffin, the lid already half-closed, that they must escape.
But when she vows to find a way to bring her people back home, Isla will have to deconstruct consciousness and the very nature of the space time continuum to unravel good from evil, truth from lies, and survival from true love.
Welcome to the City–where it takes lives to save lives…
I was more than pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up loving this book. I don’t often read Middle Grade fantasy (or much Middle Grade at all, to be honest) so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. But I can confidently say that The Last Timekeepers is a series that will probably appeal to you no matter how old you are. It’s that perfect mix of real world humor and pure escapism into an alternate reality, plus there’s a good bit of historical fiction thrown in (which I always love).
The Last Timekeepers are made up of a fun cast of five kids and two adults who are thrown together due to circumstance and destiny. They are given the extremely important role of making sure that history unfolds as it should and that everything stays cool with the timeline. I love, love, LOVE time travel stories, so I was already well on board with this theme, but I found myself truly pulled into the story because of the wonderful way the characters were drawn. The story itself has a lot of funny parts to it and a lot of the dialogue is downright hilarious. I could totally see real kids talking to each other like this. I was also completely charmed by the two adults who accompany them. John, a brilliant archaeologist, and Melody, a good-witch type of character.
Overall this is just an awesome book and I’m really looking forward to diving into the rest of the series. I would recommend it to anyone who likes Middle Grade fiction, Middle Grade fantasy, or anything to do with time travel.
