Sisters Cassia and Alexa have found safety in the mountain city of Kelbani, away from the cultists known as the Nemorans, or Warriors of the Dusk, who slaughtered many of their Order.

Manses in the cultists' power have the potential to wipe out all life on Maeridea and their intentions are as dark as the future, should the Sisters of Destiny not intervene.

Knowing they must reclaim the manses and confront the enemy, many of the Sisters including Cassia and Alexa – joined by their roguish friend Knave – go in search of them. Not knowing what awaits them, they must take a chance – whether on fate or mere luck, for everyone's sake.

Meanwhile, back on the King's Island near Kalle, Governor Cerus Arani senses shadows of danger lurking in the King's court. Suspecting a plot against King Merrion and his forces, Cerus prepares himself as he anticipates trouble is coming.

$0.99 on 8/12/2019 – Kalanon’s Rising by Darian Smith

Solve the murder. Stop the war. Save the world.
Sir Brannon Kesh spent years building a new life as a physician, leaving the name Bloodhawk and the war that spawned it behind. But when the King's cousin is murdered, duty calls him back. The crime scene suggests dark magic and the evidence points to the ambassador of Nilar, an alluring woman with secrets of her own, who sees Bloodhawk as little more than a war criminal.
As bodies pile up and political ramifications escalate, Brannon must join forces with a vain mage, a socially awkward priest, and a corpse animating shaman to solve the murders and prevent another war. But who can he trust when the phases of a bigger plan take shape?
The Risen are the greatest danger Brannon has ever faced. If he and his team cannot stop the killer then all of Kalanon – and the world – will descend into darkness.

$FREE on 6/20/2019 – Kissing Magic by Day Leitao

Kiss him. Don't fall in love.

Break a spell with a kiss. Karina has heard and seen enough weird stuff for this request to sound legit.

At 16, Karina has a shot at adventure—and an odd first kiss—when she's called to Whyland, a kingdom in another dimension, to save a guy she barely knows. Why her? No clue, but she's happy to help, and kissing Sian isn't torture, even if he isn't to be trusted. Karina's smart enough not to fall in love—or at least to tell herself not to.

Once in Whyland, she realizes that risking a broken heart is the smallest of her problems. Karina will need to stand between and ancient darkness and the kingdom. But what hope does she have against mysterious powers when she can't even control her own heart?

If you like fantasy and adventure with romance and some humor, give Kissing Magic a try. This novel is recommended for readers 13 and older. This is book 2 in Portals to Whyland series but you can jump straight into it without having read book 1.

$0.99 on 6/15/2019 – Magic & Mayhem by Janiece L. Malone

If you enjoy fantasy novels with a strong female lead, a historical time-piece with an epic ending, then you'll love this.

Nina is not your average young adult. She looks different from those around her and she was born with fire built in her fingertips. Her father James has given his all to keep her safe, but there are some cruelties he couldn't protect her from. One, in particular, racism.

After escaping certain death to obtain an ancient artifact, Nina and her companions find shelter from the storm. In that same cave, they meet a young woman. At first, they distrust her especially being that she can't remember who she is. But at their most desperate hour, she pulls through for them.

Soon her presence proves more of a problem than they first anticipated. Attracting assassins and bounty hunters alike. It is not until they meet the Rebel leader that their luck changes. However, what starts out as a mutual agreement quickly escalates into them participating in a civil war. Not against another ethnic group where they stand a chance, but against the King.

$0.99 on 5/21/2019 – She Who Rises by Rachael Arsenault

Amber Martel just wants to get through her Master’s degree. Or at least make an attempt at it. She’s early into her first semester and is feeling the weight of self-doubt and heartbreak as she tries to organize her thesis and deal with living on her own for the first time. It’s more than enough stress in her 23-year-old life.

A research trip to a natural history museum throws her life into new chaos, however, when she touches a piece of quartz and unleashes an explosion that is destructive, powerful – and magical. Now Amber finds herself in the care of two women, Farida and Masika, who claim to have connections to the origins of magic. They tell Amber that she is special, that magic outside their family is unprecedented, and that she needs to help them.

Amber wants nothing more than to go home, but it soon becomes clear that might not be safe. Strangers attack them with magic they shouldn’t possess, local police are pointing to them as terrorism suspects, and an enemy from the early days of magic has returned – even though he should be long dead.
