Fall of the Western Kings Trilogy by J. Drew Brumbaugh Genre: Epic Fantasy

Gant is a commoner, forbidden from learning swordsmanship. He trains in
spite of the law and ends up branded an outlaw. However fate
intervenes while Gant is on the run and soon he is embroiled in an
odyssey with forces of darkness that can only be vanquished with help
from his friends, not all of whom are human. An epic that delivers
the best in the tradition of classic fantasy.
Child of Evil
Tirumfall Trilogy Book 2
The story started with “Fall of the Western Kings”. Now “Child
of Evil” continues the odyssey of Gant, the hero who killed Varg
with his magical sword Valorious and who must now use his strength
and cunning to find and neutralize the child born of evil. This child
is prophesized to lead the demons of the western kingdoms to victory
over the people of the east. Other characters accompany Gant to Ferd,
the city where the child will be born. Amelia is a shape-changer who
flies to the west to do reconnaissance only to be captured and
imprisoned. Pris, the emperor and blossoming wizard, worries about
the evil forces and knows the child cannot be allowed to unite the
demonic powers. His untested magic will be key to stopping the
impending doom. Dalphnia, Gant’s wife, is a woodland nymph who can
control the trees of the forest and is determined to see her husband
come through this journey alive. Can this unlikely group intervene in
time to stop the child and the carnage that is sure to follow? Will
it mean killing the child? Resolving this moral dilemma while
outwitting the demons and getting back to the safety of their homes
makes for a rousing adventure. “Child of Evil” is the
second book in J. Drew Brumbaugh’s fantasy series, The Tirumfall Triology.
I live in northeast Ohio where I write sci-fi, fantasy, and suspense
novels, along with a few short stories. Mostly I write stories I
think I’d like to read with characters that are interesting enough
that readers want to find out what happens to them. I also spend time
teaching and training at the karate dojo my wife and I founded,
building a Japanese garden in the back yard, and taking walks in the
woods with our dog. I have six novels in print, the most recent being
“Bula Bridge,” a collection of short stories, and a
co-authored children’s book. I continue to work on my next book and
seem to always have several stories in various stages of completion.

Mummy Dearest – A Pharaonic Adventure
Misadventures in Auckland Book 1
by Barbara Russell
Genre: Middle Grade Fantasy
During a school trip to the museum, thirteen-year-old Tess wakes up an
Egyptian mummy.
Cursed by a necromancer, Prince Seth has been inside a sarcophagus for two
thousand years. Now, he has no intention of going back into his tomb.
He wants a normal life, friends, and fresh food. So, he follows Tess
home, bandages and all.
Ancient Egyptian mummies bring bad luck. Since Seth’s arrival, a car has
almost run Tess over, and a lamppost nearly squashed
her. With Tess’s soccer team, the Wolverines, qualified for
the New Zealand Junior Soccer Championship, this curse could destroy
its chances of winning. Even worse, evil Egyptian spirits chase her
and Seth to take their souls into the world of the dead.
Unless they find the two-thousand-year old necromancer, who controls the
spirits and who gained eternal youth by cursing Seth, Tess and Seth
will be doomed forever.
The Boy Who Killed Santa Claus
Misadventures in Auckland Book 2
While other thirteen-year-old kids think about playing and riding their
bikes, Hau has to deal with fairies. He sees them everywhere—small,
green, tiny wings, with pointed ears like Legolas. And they talk to
him as well. In fact, they don’t want to shut up.
No one believes him, not even his mother or his best friend. Kids at
school call him names, and he’s just as popular as a visit to the
dentist.
On top of that, he’s the only one who knows the truth about Santa
Claus. Santa isn’t the nice, fatherly elf everyone believes. He’s
a bloodthirsty villain. Yep. Newt witnessed it with his own eyes when
Santa killed his father in cold blood right under the Christmas tree.
But again, no one believes him.
The Doom & Despair Entertainment Agency
Misadventures in Auckland Book 3
Welcome to the Doom & Despair Entertainment Agency where fear is always
guaranteed. Do you want a bunch of zombies for your next birthday
party? Vampires and ghosts at your wedding, frightening your guests?
No problem. The Doom & Despair Entertainment Agency organises the
scariest events in all New Zilla.
Except that, since the ghost of MacBatt Castle disappeared, business is
slowing down at the agency. A new, young ghost, Gwen, haunts the
castle, and she’s too nice to scare the customers. So, it’s up to
Orlando, a thirteen-year-old orphan who works for the agency, to help
Gwen in becoming scarier before his employer decides to send him back to
the orphanage.
The Girl with the Dragon-Raccoon
Misadventures in Auckland Book 4
While other fifteen-year-old girls dream about having a blood-sucking
boyfriend like in Twilight, Tyro has nightmares about vampires.
She has her share of vampires, zombies, and werewolves because her mum is
a dentist who attends to these monsters’ teeth.
So, when her mother and a vampire client disappear from the dental
clinic, leaving only a trail of blood, trashed furniture, and ripped
clothes behind, Tyro suspects one of the monsters kidnapped them or
worse that the vampire attacked her mum.
Either way, she’s in deep crap.
The police don’t believe her, and Jack, the vanished vampire’s son,
wants to take Tyro to Underworld City where hags, zombies, and all
kind of were-beings live. He plans to talk with the underworld police
that control supernatural creatures.
That’s his chance to show her that not every monster is a thug, and perhaps,
she’ll accept his invitation for the Disemboweller Ball. If only he
could keep his true nature secret. No girl would be attracted by a
guy who can turn himself into a half-dragon, half-racoon beast, with
no fire to speak of, no super-strength, and very tiny wings. How lame
is that?
Tyro would rather go to school wearing only her underwear than be alone
with Jack. What if going to Underworld City is a trap? What if he
wants to eat her?
But unless she teams up with him, she’ll never know what happened to
her mum. Armed with her courage and a bottle of garlic spray, she
accepts to travel to Underworld City with Jack.
After a monster killed her dad, her mum is all that is left of her family,
and she won’t leave her in the hands of brain-eating, blood-sucking
creatures.
I’m an entomologist and a soil biologist, which is a fancy way to say
that I dig in the dirt, looking for bugs. Nature and books have
always been my passion. I was a kid when I read The Lord Of The Ring
and fell in love with fantasy novels.
When I discovered cosy mystery and crime novel, I fell in love with
Hercules Poirot and Sherlock Holmes. Then I grew up and . . . Nah,
I’m joking. Don’t grow up, folks! It’s a trap.

stories must be told. This is one of them.

When the Great War is over, will their love be enough?
After two years at the mercy of the Canadian Expeditionary force and the
German war machine, Harry ran out of metaphors for death, synonyms

little son, hope ensnares him. Through three more long years of war
and its aftermath, the hope she brings keeps Harry alive.
Rosemarie Legrand’s husband left her a tiny son, no money, and a savaged

peace and the promise of Harry’s love keep her going?

Last Night by Kim Deister Genre: Thriller, Suspense

What do you do when you keep losing time?
Night fell quickly, swallowing the last light of day in the blink of an
eye.
Terrifying visions torment Starra.
Lost moments of time and flashes of images too horrific to accept
fill her with icy fear so complete she can’t escape it. With too
many unanswered questions, she needs answers. NOW. It’s her only
hope if she wants to save what’s left of her shattered mind and soul.
Unlike Starra, Mina cares nothing for her soul. Damned long ago, she’s too
scarred for redemption. There are people meant to enjoy lives of love and
family and friends. Mina isn’t one of these people. Her life is in
the shadows, unafraid of the dark… until she realizes that
something lurks in those shadows, something that wants to tear her
apart.
One never knows what the darkness hides…
Kim Deister was born and raised in a tiny town in the wilds of northern
New York that is less than six hours from the Arctic Circle, a pretty
college town called Potsdam. She grew up in a family of lawyers and
teachers and bucked all the traditions to run off and wear combat
boots in the US Army as a Signals Intelligence Analyst (no jokes!)
and a linguist. She also worked as a tech writer for Corning Glass
Works, which was an entirely different kind of writing.
Living the Army life has allowed Kim to travel all over and much of that has
seeped into her books. She has a love of strong female characters,
tropical places, and flipping traditional themes on end. She loves
that words can take one out of the existing world and let the
unimaginable become imaginable. When she’s not writing, she’s
probably on the beach, with her nose deep in a book.
