Anna Maria (annamariagr) | 1 comments Hello!

Many thanks,

Colleen Cowley (colleencowley) | 4 comments If you like romantic fantasy, you might enjoy Subversive, the first in a new trilogy.

Here's what it's about:

In an America controlled by wizards and 100 years behind on women’s rights, Beatrix Harper counts herself among the resistance—the Women’s League for the Prohibition of Magic. Then Peter Blackwell, the only wizard her town has ever produced, unexpectedly returns home and presses her into service as his assistant.

Beatrix fears he wants to undermine the League. His real purpose is far more dangerous for them both.

Happy to send you an ARC as a mobi if that's up your alley.

Kevin Carlin | 5 comments Hi Anna Maria,

I'd love to get your honest review of The Pacifists. It's a lighthearted space opera, and I'd be happy to send you a .mobi if you're interested. Here is the blurb:

After a chance meeting between a fierce warrior and a conscientious objector from opposite sides of a galactic conflict, the two rival spaceship pilots conclude that war is as pointless as arguing with an Orthodox Tautologist. Together they form the Pacifists, a "militant anti-war group" consisting of a perpetual teenager whose species was created in a botched attempt to overcome the aging process; a big rig pilot and former orbital race champion; and a pair of prankster twin brothers.

Of course, battling two galactic armed forces at once is all well and good. It's when you gain the ire of the military industrial complex itself that things really start to go sideways.

If possible, I'm hoping to get some reviews on Smashwords. I'm pushing harder there than I am on Amazon, but any and all reviews are very much appreciated!

Christian Cura | 7 comments Hi Anna,

Would you like to review an urban fantasy? The title is Dreams of Thunder and the word count is 59k.

Synopsis: Magical outlaws roam free on the West Coast. The enforcers are stretched thin in their efforts to stem the tide of chaos. The Council headquarters is on the brink of assault and the lives of the Council members hang in the balance. At the center of it all, is Saba Qureshi, a woman scorned by the draconian measures of the Council. They executed her grandfather, and robbed her family of their status and fortune. Now Saba is coming for them, and she’s not alone…

Trigger Warning: Violence is somewhat graphic and prevalent throughout the story. There are also two brief scenes of intimacy between consenting adults and a reference to cheating.

This is the second book in a series, and I can provide the first upon request.

The release date is October 3rd. If you are interested, please contact me at depanocura@gmail.com with the subject line: 'Book Review.' Upon request, I can send you an ARC in mobi format. Thank you for considering my request, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Christian

I have a non-epic adventure fantasy novel that I would like more reviews for: Exile

Aron of Darien, raised in exile after his homeland is conquered by a treacherous warlord, makes his way in the world on the strength of his wits and skill with a sword. Both are sorely tested when he is impressed into the service of the Earl of Nandor to rescue his heir from captivity in the fortress of Sarazan. The rescue goes awry. Aron and his companions are betrayed and must flee for their lives. Pursued by steel and magic, they find new friends and old enemies on the road that leads, after many turns, to the city of the High King. There Aron must face his father’s murderer before risking everything in a fight to the death with the deadliest swordsman in the kingdom.

I can supply the .mobi file if this sounds interesting

E.A. Wicklund (eawicklund) | 5 comments I would like to offer to you, The Huralon Incident. It's a military space opera focused upon naval battles in space. It also includes a touch of romance and a dash of humor. Here's a synopsis:

-A captain desperate to redeem himself.

-Captain Evander McCray is a wily combat veteran, but when the pirate he is hunting for falls into his trap, the criminal commands a warship far more powerful than Intelligence predicted.

-A new high-tech ship, able to disappear from sensors, or change appearance at will.

-The pirate vessel is too tough to fight directly even for the stealthy ESS Springbok. Only McCray's maverick style and an insane, audacious plan can capture his quarry.

-An unwary planet, ripe for the picking.

-What McCray never expected is his plan will light the fuse on a political and military powder keg just waiting to explode at Huralon.

Hi Anna Marie

Blue Moonstone is Young Adult Fantasy and I will be very happy to email you a copy to review.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

Danni’s teenage life pretty much sucks. Panic attacks and phobias are a battle, but she knows there is a very good reason she’s afraid. If only she could remember what it is? Danni grew up on Harry Potter and Twilight, avidly reads fantasy novels, and feasts on Netflix. These are the best things in her life, everything else is a work in progress like controlling her anxiety. She doesn't fit in anywhere and suspects she might be adopted. Does everything have to be so hard? Adding to the frightmare, Danni moves to the city of Edinburgh in Scotland where the grey weather suits her grim mood.
She's so not impressed with her excusive new school even though it's housed in a castle like Hogwarts. It's just yawntastic school with no magic apart from James MacAbre. He confuses Danni by insisting on following her around. He loves Shakespeare, and all things military, and his speech is strange too. He persists in giving Danni weird salutes and vowing to protect her ‘til death, forever. Danni begins to suspect that James is not from this time. Although he has firmly friend zoned her, James still struggles with jealousy when Danni makes friends with Stewie. Stewie has his own secrets, but Danni is too completely swept up and fascinated by the drama surrounding James to pay attention. Danni is sure James must be more than human. When Danni searches for answers, James pushes back hard and warns she is endangering them both. But she is still determined to discover his secrets. James promises Danni he is not a vampire: nor a time traveller, nor anything she has ever heard of, but he's not a normal mortal so what is he?
Whatever else he is, Danni suspects James is a military hero. He sees his job as to protect Danni, and to fight for anyone who needs it. She is a pacifist who argues no civilised society should ever resort to war. His enemies are close? But that doesn’t mean they can’t be friends. Or does it? Why does everyone keep calling Danni ‘Rose’ and why does Rose MacAbre look like Danni? James won’t even kiss Danni, it's against his killjoy knights' code, is it because they are related? Faced with mortal danger Danni hides under the bed and has no plans to come out anytime soon. James needs Danni’s help more than she ever imagined in her worst frightmare, but things lurch from bad to worse. Danni hopes Stewie will be clever enough help her to solve a centuries old mystery, but the odds are not good.

Rene DeFazio (tamaraveitchrenedefazio) | 32 comments Hello Anna Maria,
We know you are probably getting a lot of responses and we would like to humbly throw our names into the hat, as it were. We have an exciting Epic Fantasy Fiction Book for you to consider reviewing. The Emissary by Tamara Veitch & Rene DeFazio won the Gold Medal for Best Visionary Fiction from Readers Favorites 2019 and is Book 1 of The One Great Year Series. The series has also been optioned for film/television development. The second book in the series The Emerald Tablet won the Bronze Medal. Here is the synopsis-
When the world collapses from a Golden Age into one of chaos and strife, mankind’s salvation lies in the hands of eternal Emissaries — guardians chosen to protect the secrets of a sacred, ancient civilization and to guide humanity back to enlightenment even as its darkest hour approaches…
A timeless tale of love reborn through the ages.
Marcus has past life memory, and his soulmate Theron does not, but the two lovers are bound by an eternal and unshakable bond. As a series of catastrophic events nearly destroys their world, the two along with a chosen few become Emissaries destined, over the course of 13,000 years and through many reincarnations, to lead humanity into an era of peace and prosperity as foretold by the Elders of their race. But the forces of evil have taken possession of one man, Helghul, who relentlessly pursues Marcus and Theron through time, determined to destroy them and ruin all hope for salvation.
The Emissary, Book I in The One Great Year Series, tracks Marcus’s epic adventure across centuries of human civilization to present day, where envoys of darkness gather around them threatening to bury the life-giving secrets of Atitala forever.
Good and evil come to blows and the future of mankind hangs in the balance.

“For every soul there is a theme, a path that must be followed, lessons that must be learned…”

Hi! I have a YA fantasy with magic and a touch of time travel:

Sixty-eight years ago, the Brotherhood of Light came to power. Now, in 2091, Anya lives under the rule of the Lightborn. For years, these men have abused their power, changing the weather and altering animals for their own entertainment. But they’ve taken it too far. The world is dying because of their reckless use of magic. Though they try to hide it, these dark spots on the earth will soon seep out, leaving decay and destruction in their wake. Anya has remained hidden, her power a great secret she holds close. But she knows about the decay and feels a responsibility to do something. When she is captured by the Brotherhood, she is left with no choice but to help them. But her power is greater than they could ever imagine. Will Anya find the help she needs in the future? Can she make it back in time to stop the inevitable?

Through Hell & Highwater (Through Hell and Highwater, #1) by Victoria Liiv

Through Hell & Highwater

S. Niter (s_niter) | 4 comments Hello, I am a new author who just released a new novel with a "unique writing style". The book is in a new fictional universe which I have been outlining for quite some time, its known as Amazement Eras (AE), which falls under the genres of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Time-Travel, Action-Thriller and furthermore genres in the future. Hope this "unique writing style" I have adapted does bring in more interest towards my book, the writing style is described down below along with the summary of the novel. Also, this novel is filled with unique and intrinsic characters such as a girl with rainbow pastel hair as shown on the front cover of my book.

My new book is called Amazement Eras Phase 1: Timemaster Era: Beginning of a new universe!.

The unique writing style as described includes "sub storylines", "dated continuity synchronized" and even "character profiles" at the end of the book. Each sub storyline has its own unique set of characters, setting and lore taking place, with other sub storylines acknowledging its existence within the same universe. The dated continuity synchronized feature is what I have tried to implement, meaning every single chapter in the novel has a day, month and year specified right at the beginning (with even some chapters having the hour and minute specified too). The dated continuity for each chapter helps illustrate the cleanliness and smoothness of fictional continuity within the AE universe timeline respectively. The character profiles at the end of the book (which I recommend reading after finishing the book itself), illustrates the age, blood type, height, birthplace and other parameters of the characters, to help give the readers an idea of how old the characters are in which chapters specifically. Also to give readers a better understanding of what each character represents in the AE universe respectively. This is a new writing style I have implemented, not sure if you would be interested it in it.

But the furthermore entries of the AE universe will contain YA, historical fiction, horror, suspense, romance, classical and many others. Each book represents its own "era", meaning one era could focus on sci-fi, another one on classical, fantasy, horror, etc. This novel, the first one in my Amazement Eras Series comprises of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Action-Thriller mainly.

Summary:
Aiden Alves along with his friends in secondary school within Allentown, Pennsylvania are chosen by the primordial cosmic entity to battle evil on Earth. The space trance sequence dream selector identified Aiden’s team for their sincerity necessary to prevail over the 30th century AI invader Timemaster, the prismatic fourth dimension polychromatic Infrared and the human geomorphic Oddball. Timemaster travels back in time to the present with the intent to influence future events. Guided by Jay and Jack from the 30th century, the team must battle against AI militants under the control of Timemaster. Challenges come along the way for the team including the use of their powers and abilities, whether they can move on with an abnormal life or not. Will these teens, selected for their honesty, deepest desires and attitude to power, be able to save the world under attack from a technologically avant-garde invasion from the 30th century?

35+ Chapters with Dated Continuity! 9+ Preeminent Characters. 4 Storylines. 1 Era. 1 Book.

And yes, my novel is available in paperback and kindle edition both! Let me know if you are still interested in a copy of the book in mobi, docx, pdf, etc.

Available on Amazon.com (.ca, .co.uk, etc); https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08Z2RXZBY/...

All the while, Leon’s dreams continue to warn him that something is coming. Along his journey, he’s going to have to fight his fears, find the hero within himself, and become what—and who—he’s destined to be. Will he discover his strength before it’s too late? Can he save himself and his friends? Will he find all the answers in time to save his friends, himself, and the world?

If you need a copy please ask, thanks.

Mark Campbell | 15 comments Hi Anna Maria

My horror novel 'The Lady in Red' is a book I think you might like. It is a supernatural novel set in the south east of England in two distinct time periods: the 1830s and the modern day. The story begins with two bodysnatchers or grave robbers who wish to 'lend a helping hand to death' so they resort to murder in order to increase the supply of corpses they can offer up to a waiting surgeon. He requires them to find remedies for deadly diseases. Later in the book one of these bodysnatchers returns as a ghost to cause more mayhem. There is then a battle between good and evil until the novel's gripping conclusion. You can find my profile page on Goodreads here: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... I hope you will be interested in reviewing my book.

Best wishes

Mark

James Fox | 16 comments Hi Anna Maria,

Thank you for your interest in SciFi! I've included the requested details down below, as well as a link to request a review copy.

https://storyoriginapp.com/reviewcopi...

- Revolution (The Sol Saga Book 1)
- Sci-Fi Thriller
- War is good for business... And business is about to boom.

General Keith Brennan would rather face an army with his trusty rifle than attend another state dinner. When the President of the solar system is assassinated on Mars, Brennan is the obvious choice to investigate. If he comes up with the wrong answer, though, his career will be over.

However, duty is never so simple. When the investigation uncovers a trail of corruption and a conspiracy on a system-wide scale, Brennan’s career is the least of his worries.

With Earth and Mars on the brink of a shooting war and forces behind the scenes determined to push them over the edge, only Marine General Keith Brennan can stop the slaughter before it’s too late. Unless, of course, it already is…

Revolution is the first in a new gritty sci-fi saga with enemies at every turn. Grab your rifle, pick your side, and join the revolution now!
