Avenging blade of the Goddess Ishtar.
Iltani asked to be none of these things. Yet fate does not ask permission when she weaves souls upon destinyâ€™s loom.
On the day of Iltaniâ€™s birth, an assassin tried and nearly succeeded in ending the line of the gryphon kings. Out of that bloodshed, an unbreakable bond was forged between child-king and goddess-chosen infant, and from that pivotal moment forward, Iltani was never farther from King Ditanu than his shadow. Not until her training to become Ishtarâ€™s Blade required her to leave.
After four brutal years of training, Iltani now returns to court as Ishtarâ€™s Blade and takes up her role of kingâ€™s shadowâ€”a dangerous position in a court where the threat of another assassination is but a bladeâ€™s width away. But for the chance to stand at the side of her beloved king, she will endure the dangers of court intrigues, assassins, and political maneuverings.
An accident during the construction of a tunnel beneath the Bering Strait leads to the discovery of a network of caverns and evidence that hints at the survival of a primitive human species. Led by DARPA technologist Reinhard Thyssen, a team of experts from around the globe is dispatched into the subterranean maze to discover all they can before the caves completely flood.
Something lurks in the darkness, thoughâ€¦a creature that has evolved into a predator unlike any the world has ever known, and itâ€™s up to the scientists to make sure that it never reaches the surface. If they can survive that long.
Dog Mountain is just like any other small town â€” peaceful and uneventful. Well, that is if peaceful means wolves howling all night, and uneventful means itâ€™s overrun by pesky werewolves, then yes, Dog Mountain is just your average small town.
Jade Shaw has spent the last two years avoiding the pack. But when Aidan Collins moves to town, avoiding the dogs doesnâ€™t seem possible. The pack wants him just as much as she does.
Determined to keep him out of the packâ€™s grasp, Jade does everything she can to gain his attention. Little does she know, Aidan is in deeper with the pack than she could have imagined, and competing for his attention is a deadly game, one she may not want to win.
The Bite On The Line
Fantasy as fast as any thriller.
Clinging to the bar running along the front of the platform, Sergeant Osric has a lot of time to think about how he got there. About how heâ€™s shooting through a forest on a rocket powered railcar. About how a grinning thief is clinging to the same bar beside him. Most of all, though, about how heâ€™s heading for Bytarend; a town no-one has heard from in almost a hundred years. There has to be a reasonable explanation for their silence, after all. Osric tries to think of a reason that doesnâ€™t end in his horrible death…
… he canâ€™t come up with one.
The Bite on the Line is the first book in the Bytarend series. Fast-paced fantasy with plenty of humour along the way.
