Rift of Askrah: Book One: Fracture is FREE with DSP

Rift of Askrah, Book One: Fracture
by Benjamin Andrews

What seems true on the surface may be just an illusion. Nihlen Draven, First Prince and heir to the throne of the nation of Draven, has lived with undeniable truths his entire life. In an instant though, all those truths are shattered. After being kidnapped, and his kingdom subjugated by the neighboring nation of Rinh, Nihlen's life begins to spiral out of control. Every day becomes a battle for survival, even escape is nearly impossible. Searching for the answers he desperately needs may be pushing the limit.

In other lands, changes are also taking place. For generations, people from one continent to another have thrived in an age of peace. Plans have been set into motion however, both by the hand of man, and fate itself, causing this peaceful age to come to an end. Each desires something different, but whether those moving the pieces know it or not, they all have two things in common. Prince Nihlen, and a land that has become all but legend.

This legendary land is known as Askrah, and its secrets are slowly enveloping the world, threatening the safety and lives of people everywhere. The history of this empire has touched every nation, in ways that have now been long forgotten. When something is forgotten though, it does not disappear, but waits only to be discovered once more. The Eye of Kings, a strange power that links Nihlen to the lost history of this once mighty empire, is only the beginning of what Askrah has left behind. This power is the key to the end of one age, and the only chance for salvation in the next.

The forces moving across the world, and the ever increasing burden of destiny, will push Nihlen to his limits. Without help, Nihlen may fall to the blade of any one of his growing list of enemies. There are those sympathetic to his cause though, and their help will be paramount to his success. War is rising off the horizon, and there is no way of knowing how long there is to prepare. The adventure is only beginning, and the prelude that ushers in the unknown now echoes across the world.

Smoke and Magic is FREE with DSP

Smoke and Magic
by Patti Larsen

Banished to Victorian London

“Auburdeen Perneila Hayle,” Sassafras hissed, the amber glow from his cat eyes growing until the front of the wicker cage shone with it, “you will do whatever you can to behave yourself, to not embarrass me or your mother and to absolutely under every circumstance maintain a firm hand on your horrid temper.”

My anger simmered. Yes, I had a temper. And yes, it had taken me into situations in the past that perhaps I shouldn't have been part of, situations that usually devolved into fistfights and incoherent yelling at the offender. He should be grateful I always kept control of myself enough my magic never came into play. Except that one time. But it wasn't my fault. Not really. And the offender recovered. Eventually.

Auburdeen Hayle is the sixteen-year-old daughter of the next leader of her coven. When the transition of power becomes tense, Burdie is sent from her home in America to stay with old friends in London to keep her safe. But a handsome young man chooses to hide from the police in her hansom, drawing Burdie into an underground world of magic that challenges even her sense of adventure and puts her at odds with the very people who are meant to protect her.

If you love Smoke and Magic, don't forget to check out the Hayle Coven series--and the adventures of Auburdeen's great great great granddaughter, Sydlynn, in Book One: Family Magic
