$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.

$0.99 on 7/2/2019 – Magic & Mayhem by Janiece L. Malone

Magic and Mayhem is set in Bellevue, a pre-industrialized country built with polished wood, horse carriages, and musket rifles. The Rebels of Newbury salvage the brisk outskirts of the North, in refuge from the Pacifier Forces who maintain the King's sick version of peace in the summery South. At the center of the conflict lies supernatural forces and a young woman that brings magic into the realm. Her presence proves both a blessing and a curse. Reaching across the entire realm of Bellevue, this is a tale of diverse characters with plenty of troubled princes, exiled knights, cunning elves, fallen heroes and mysterious mentors whose fate hangs in the balance of a young woman named Solana.

$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.

The elemental sorceresses of the Sisters of Destiny have long protected the city of Kalle, peaceably tending to the faithful and reading the runes. Yet even their powers can be clouded or misled. When the Temple of Solitude is attacked in their absence, sisters Alexa and Cassia are thrust into events beyond their experience and training, as they attempt to rescue their fellow priestesses and reach safety in the city of Kelbani.

Cassia, a spirited fire priestess and Alexa, her calmer, less impetuous sister, soon discover the road is treacherous and dangers lurk in every shadow. Fighting against fear and suspicion, and their faith wavering, the priestesses find help from an unlikely ally, as in the distance a shadow of dark magic grows.

$0.99 on 7/3/2018 – Kingshold by D. P. Woolliscroft

Mareth is a bard, a serial under achiever, a professional drunk, and general disappointment to his father. Despite this, Mareth has one thing going for him. He can smell opportunity. The King is dead and an election for the new Lord Protector has been called. If he plays his cards right, if he can sing a story that will put the right person in that chair, his future fame and drinking money is all but assured. But, alas, it turns out Mareth has a conscience after all.

Neenahwi is the daughter of Jyuth, the ancient wizard who founded the Kingdom of Edland and she is not happy. It's not just that her father was the one who killed the King, or that he didn't tell her about his plans. She's not happy because her father is leaving, slinking off into retirement and now she has to clean up his mess.

Alana is a servant at the palace and the unfortunate soul to draw the short straw to attend to Jyuth. Alana knows that intelligence and curiosity aren't valued in someone of her station, but sometimes she can't help herself. And so she finds herself drawn into the Wizard's schemes, and worst of all, coming up with her own plans.

Chance brings this unlikely band together to battle through civil unrest, assassinations, political machinations, pirates and monsters, all for a common cause that they know, deep down, has no chance of succeeding – bringing hope to the people of Kingshold.
