The Vaelinel Trilogy by Andi O’Connor

Silevethiel
The Vaelinel Trilogy Book 1
by Andi O’Connor
Genre: Paranormal Fantasy
Following her father’s murder, Irewen is betrayed and left for dead in the
forests of Mistwood. Rescued by an elf, Irewen awakes an exile with
no home, no country, and no people. But as the horrific memories of
murder and betrayal return, she realizes the nightmare is only beginning.
The world of Vaelinel is failing–its fate bound to her in ways no one
fully understands. A mysterious elven prophecy may provide her with
some answers, but continuously hunted and fighting for her life,
Irewen quickly learns that unearthing the truth will be more
difficult than she ever imagined.
Can she accept the friendship of the Wood Elves, or will she stand alone
against the terrifying evil now threatening to destroy the entire world?
The Speaker
The Vaelinel Trilogy Book 2
The Vaelinel Trilogy continues with this absorbing sequel to Silevethiel!
Alone and hunted by the Drulaack, Irewen takes advantage of her only option
for survival. Pushing her concerns aside, she lets the dead keep her.
But her refuge doesn’t last long. Driven out of their hosts by Laegon, a
handful Drulaack have returned to the Spirit World. No longer having
the protection of the dead, Irewen is forced to return to Vaelinel.
Finally reunited with her companions, the burdens placed on them are taking
their toll. Thoughts of suicide and mistrust plague the company.
Slowly unravelling, they must conquer their personal battles before
standing against the evil threatening the land.
For the Corrupter thirsts for revenge. And he’ll stop at nothing to
satisfy his hunger.
A Prophecy Fulfilled
The Vaelinel Trilogy Book 3
Regrouping after their escape from the Light Elves, Irewen and her companions
fear the worst after black smoke plumes on the horizon. Allowing
compassion to rule over reason, they ignore Finnwyn’s warning and
return to Lilendvelle, hoping to help some of the survivors stranded
in the city’s wake. Instead, they run into a trap.
Completely surrounded by an endless army of Drulaack, they fight
for their lives, but their efforts aren’t enough. Irewen is captured and
dragged into the heart of the Corrupter’s lair.
Having his prize, the others in the company are granted their freedom, but
at a great cost: the one named in the prophecy who is meant to unite
the elf forces and stand against the Corrupter is lost to the world –
trapped beneath the Corrupter’s talons.
With the aid of his mother’s spirit, Brendell must now find a way to
gather an alliance strong enough to march against the Corrupter and
his army, but his time is running out. Each day that passes brings
Irewen closer to death.
And the world closer to destruction.
Andi O’Connor is a multi-award winning author of epic fantasy novels and
short stories with a healthy dose of paranormal mixed in. She sits in
front of her typewriter (yes, typewriter!) every day and loses
herself in her worlds and characters in hopes that her readers will
fall in love with them as well. When she’s not clacking away, you can
find Andi dancing her butt off in the ballet studio. Rest assured,
she’s not the next Natalia Osipova, but she has a mean collection of
leotards and always finds an excuse to buy more.
She loves bats and dreams of turning her yard into a certified bat
habitat. She has three dogs who constantly work hard to drive her
insane, but their fluffy cuteness outweighs any insanity they can
bring. Her husband ‘Honeybee’ is wonderfully supportive of her author
life, and her son ‘P’ may or may not have claimed her typewriter as
his own on several occasions. Deadpool is her spirit animal, and her
motto is Embrace Your Crazy. We’re all unique and crazy in our own
ways, and Andi hopes others will join her by being proud of their
quirks and embracing their crazy!

Is humanity on a Road to Nowhere?
What forces are at play behind global warming and its threat to every
species? Is humanity irrevocably heading down a Road to Nowhere?
This near future page-turner, weaves conspiracy, murder, genius and love
into a fast-paced ride across the globe, through the absurd and beyond.
Patrick, Kirby, Ancient and Costas thrust us into the world of corporate
juggernaut, PetroSynth, where science, politics and corruption jostle
to determine our future. How can so much power over our planet be in
the hands of so few?
This book is the stuff of modern mythology, an exciting adventure with
intricate personalities leaving the reader in a state of agitated
‘not knowing’ until the very end. Can we succeed (we are all in
this one together) or will the corporates and their minions win out
only to abandon the planet in crisis? A racy and worthwhile read
capturing the zeitgeist of our times.”
Ian Cohen – first Green MLC, NSW Parliament and Author of ‘Green Fire’
MORE REVIEWS
What makes this debut novel from Evan Shapiro a thoroughly engrossing read
is that it is hard to pigeon hole into any particular genre. Part
science fiction, thriller, mystery and romp. A fun and at times
gritty ride. It’s a page turner written with insight, irreverence and
is an apt observation of humanity’s capacity for suffering and
destruction, yet with potential to make a positive change.
G King
Road To Nowhere’ gives us a thought-provoking glimpse into an
uncompromising future that brilliantly juxtaposes futuristic hedonism
with the bare fundamentals of human frailty.
M Jury
The second of four children born to would-be bohemians, Evan grew up on a
diet of independent cinema, junk TV, Shakespeare and chocolate
biscuits. As a toddler he drank Dettol and shampoo and stuck forks
into power-points. Growing up he was often reminded by his family
that he was lucky to have survived past the age of five. While his
parents blamed him for being dangerously active and carelessly
inquisitive, he lays the responsibility squarely at their feet for
repeatedly leaving Dettol, shampoo and forks within his grasp.
He likes to define the resulting confusion from his upbringing as his
‘perspective’ which he now relentlessly channels into works of fiction.
These day’s he likes to prod people instead of power-points. He lives in
Sydney and divides his time between co-parenting, fixing his father’s
TV settings, changing his mother’s light bulbs, graphic design work,
writing and meditation. He claims to have found the secret to perfect
parenting, but as the answer is endless patience he’s not sure it’s
any use to anyone.

Where Ebon Sounds Like Ivory by A. Nicky Hjort

Norse legend has it that the arms of the Yggdrasil tree—a sacred
instrument of Odin—are ever-reaching, and its survival is necessary for
life itself to continue.

During Winter’s Solstice, when the search for her mortal mother begins, Za will have to cross over the Ebon Branch of the Dead—a feat that has supposedly never been survived intact. But if she does make it across and back home, she just might discover why she and the other three Norn Sisters of Fate came to be.

A fairytale at heart, this is the second chapter in the epic saga of the youngest and most fickle of the four Norn Sisters. The same feisty immortal creature who must discover her true origins to understand her inherent inner darkness. Only this way can she learn the meaning of unconditional sacrifice in the name of impenetrable love…when, as her
destiny would have it, all the branches of such a powerful tree tremble treacherously in her tiny little hands.

A veritable unraveling of Snow White, the narrative of Where Ebon Sounds Like Ivory journeys through the most horrible of realms where shocking truths emerge. Here where death mimics life, obsession masquerades as devotion, and the most unexpected endings become the most surprising beginnings of a classic tale. One…you thought you knew so well.

Welcome to a place where the darkest of melodies births a miraculous tune of  surrenderance. Here Where Ebon Sounds Like Ivory and Christmas, as we know it, begins.

was dreadful) but doubts she’ll ever accomplish the second. This is
not a bid for immortality but merely the dismal truth.
She lives near Atlanta, Georgia with an ever-shifting population
of relatives, friends, and feline strays.

Aristocratic witch, Isabella Pethany, has heritage but not magic.
Underworld powerbroker, amnesiac vampire Maldit,
has magic but no heritage.
Lukas Sindis, coven sorcerer and famous psychopath, has both.
Isabella knows her null magic status makes her an embarrassment to her family,
but since Natalie, her sister, was murdered, she is all they have
left. Guilt makes her willing to do almost anything to compensate for
her lack of value, but her grandmother’s proposal to match her with

through his damaged memory, allowing him to catch glimpses of his
forgotten past.

with a reservoir of trapped power. When he escapes, his magic flies
free, washing over Maldit and Isabella, and clearing away the spells
paralysing both of them.

Loving Logan by Breanna Hayse Genre: SciFi Romance

The Perfect Companion- The Perfect Man- The Perfect Lover-
The Perfect Dom…
Robotics engineer Dr. Kymberli Dalton is fed up with men. Period. After being
betrayed by her most recent lover, she designs a robotic ‘toy’ based
on the song; ‘Coin-Operated Boy’. This dreamy sex machine will be
everything she wants: Lifelike, Overindulgent, Generous,
Affectionate, and Nurturing. Most importantly, LOGAN will be hers and
hers alone, able to fill every void in her life – and satisfy her
hungry body.
Little does she know that the LOGAN A.I. program has its own agenda; it
wants to become real and alive, and to serve her every need… which
includes indulging in her secret fantasies.
Unfortunately, this ‘Pinocchio’ doesn’t have a magic Blue Fairy to turn him into a
real boy, but he does have technology that allows him to step into
her life as her perfect companion… with a strong dominant streak.
True to the robotic law, LOGAN guards and protects her – whether
Kymberli likes it or not – and that includes putting her over his
strong, solid knee for bare-bottomed spankings… followed by
unencumbered, breathtaking loving.
Logan’s protective love not only teaches him how to feel, but allows Kymmi to
reconnect with her lost childhood and discover the joy of being a
loved little girl…
Even though their secret is hidden in plain sight, the couple is soon
faced with the biggest challenge they will ever have to confront.
Will this unnatural love be allowed to continue? And if so, at what
sacrifice?
Publisher’s Note:
This book contains explicit sexual content involving machinery,
anal play, spanking, dubious consent, bondage, minor BDSM themes,
strong language, and graphic violence.
BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and
reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I’m a native Californian gone ‘wild’, and had the opportunity to travel
the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine
Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to
go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a
marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative
lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique
inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable
characters.
In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both
submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving.
Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and
mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.
My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door
to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time,
I’ve devoted my ‘spare’ time to writing, researching, community
involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant
behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.
I was formally ‘dungeon trained’ as a Domme before discovering my
submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled
primarily from either personal experience or observation, including
spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My
multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and
give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of
fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of
the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on
‘the real deal.’
I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and
two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S
relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear),
and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies
include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John
can’t find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and
developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured
author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a
Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.
