    The King Is Dead Book Tour

    The King Is Dead
    by Al Burke
    Genre: Epic Fantasy
    Etruvia has known peace for twenty years. But this time of peace has brought
    corruption and greed. The nobility has taken control, and the
    memories of great victories of old have faded. Crime is rife and the
    once proud people are little more than peasants. As a great evil
    rises in the desolate north, can a forgotten king and an embittered
    former war hero wake a nation from its stupor and build an army
    strong enough to give it a fighting chance?
    Al was born in Dublin, Ireland, but moved to Vancouver, Canada in 2009
    with his wife and baby daughter. Now the proud (and active) father of
    two children, Al pays the bills by working in his local library. Al
    is the author of The King is Dead, an epic fantasy novel recently
    published by Bella Tulip Publishing. With his first novel under his
    belt, Al plans to release at least one more in 2017, including a
    series of short stories.
    Al’s favourite genres are fantasy, science fiction and horror.
    Al is a huge fan of mythology, and his future works will incorporate
    different legends.
    Al has a degree in Philosophy, with particular interest in Morality and
    Philosophies of Freedom.

    Elemental Rising
    The Elemental Trilogy Book 1
    by Toni Cox
    Genre: Epic Fantasy
    When Maia returns home to Elveron from her final test on Earth, something
    unexpected happens and she ends up in a coma. When she finally wakes,
    she realises that she has brought with her the very thing she tried
    to leave behind.
    Faced with responsibilities she thinks she is not ready for, a love she
    does not reciprocate and a threat to her people that might kill them
    all, she is suddenly forced to become what she is meant to be – a Prime.
    But she is not alone. She has her mentor, Silas, and her dragon,
    Midnight, who stand by her side as she embarks on an adventure to
    save not just herself, but the rest of the nation of Grildor as well.
    Cox has created characters; a world; a story that is Tolkien worthy. She
    has developed something unique and rich in imagination.”

    Maia is an incredible character to follow. Toni Cox has managed to bring
    something new, exciting, and seriously addictive to the fore.”

    Elemental Betrayal
    The Elemental Trilogy Book 2
    The nation of Grildor still reels from the War of Greystone. They spent
    the winter Moons mourning their dead. Now it is spring and time to
    drive the last of the enemy off their planet.
    Maia has sunken into a pit of despair during the harsh Moons of Winter,
    not only mourning the people that died, but also the absence of
    Blaid. Would he ever come back to her?
    Lord Longshadow, Lord Regent of Grildor, decides it is time to act and
    sends Maia and Jaik as ambassadors to the various cities within
    Grildor. The aim is to reassure the people that the Longshadow Clan
    is there to protect them, but as Maia and Jaik travel, they learn
    that the situation is far worse than they had anticipated.
    They have been betrayed and their nation is threatened with war a second
    time. Desperately, she searches for the strength to save her people.
    And, although she has her dragon, Midnight to help her, the
    responsibility of being a Prime rests heavily on her shoulders.
    Will her magic be strong enough to save them this time?

    Born in Germany in 1976, Toni Cox moved to South Africa in 1991. Although
    she has spent much of her working career in the timber wholesale
    business, she is also an accomplished horse rider, has a diploma in
    project management, photography and nutrition, and has a passion for
    books and all things fantasy.
    From a young age, her dream had
    always been to put her imagination into words – give the stories
    life. When she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2013, she
    decided life is too short not to follow her dream. So, with the
    support of her husband and three children, she began writing book 1
    of the Elemental Trilogy in January 2015.
    The Elemental Saga is a fantasy story spanning over 35 books.
    These stories all take place on the various Life Planets of the Milky Way galaxy.
    The first 4 books were published between 2016 – 2017, with 5 more books coming
    in 2018.
    The Andromeda Saga takes place in the Andromeda
    galaxy and will be a mix of sci-fi and fantasy. Hopefully, by 2020,
    we will see the first books of this saga published.
    Toni Cox also writes dystopian fantasy, and her first novel,
    Resilient, is due for release in 2018.

    Five people. Five crossing fates.
    One person’s actions change their lives forever.
    Making a deal with the Fee has its price. In Katriane Dupont’s case, it
    comes with scales and an unlimited amount of power. The consequences

    Shades cross the Death Realm, and an Angel, determined for answers,

    Can Kat control what’s within her? Or will it consume her?
    It’s nature, to fight to live, even until your very last breath.”
    D. Fischer is a mother of two very busy boys, a wife to a wonderful and

    worlds, she spends most of her evenings buried in Paranormal Science
    Fiction books, but her dream as been to publish one of her own –

    come together in the inevitable battle for power between the Kingdom
    of Aren and the Free Cities, who will prevail?
    Will the Children of
    The Prophecy get the chance to fulfill their destiny, or will evil
    destroy light and plunge the world into a thousand years of darkness?
    I have always had a passion for writing, and a special place in my
    heart for Epic Fantasy. Inspired by others who have paved the way for
    this genre, I have many stories to tell, and plan to bring them all
    to you.
    I started going to a fantasy world in my mind many years ago, and the
    adventures of Peter and Alexandra were my escape from the harsh
    technical world all around me. The twins were enthusiastic,
    energetic, eager to go out and explore their world, and willing to
    take on any challenge necessary. I have often said that I travel to
    the Upper Aren and come back and write about it, and I really do feel
    that way at times.
    My own eclectic interests fueled the twin’s activities, as I have done a
    little of everything in my life. I suspect it’s because of my adult
    attention deficit disorder, and a need to try everything at least
    once.
    I hope you enjoy the adventures of my characters and they become a part
    of your lives, as they have long been a part of mine.

    by magick. Myths and monsters once again roam the land.
    Blending H. P. Lovecraft’s mythos, with the numerous mythologies of the

    Gods described by August Derleth).

    Six months after a tragic war, the world of Myrrah has found peace.
    But many of the heroes have not.
    Wandering to avoid memories of lost friends and past actions, Zhao
    reluctantly returns home to fulfill a promise to his sister. And to proclaim to
    the elders of his people that their treatment of Air Elementals is
    wrong. His homecoming is met with hostility but not for the reason he
    expects. It is far worse.
    To protect his gifted niece from a life of hardship and subjugation like
    the one he endured, Zhao must rescue his sister. Even if she doesn’t
    wish it. Quickly caught once again in events greater than he can
    handle alone, Zhao struggles to prevent a personal conflict from

    Failure condemns this world and the next.
    Named Guardian of the Elemental Spheres, Lavinia seeks the lost gates to
    the spirit realm and their ancient guardians. But some of the
    guardians have left their duties and those that have stayed may prove
    as dangerous as her enemy, whose wrath threatens the world. To end an
    ancient punishment inflicted on them by the Goddess for their role in
    a forgotten war, the Ashanti will conquer this world and that of
    spirit to gain power over death.
    Lavinia must close the gates to stop the Ashanti, even though by doing so she
    risks ending all elemental powers.
    And the act has consequences greater than the ancient guardians imagine.
    But one gate has a new guardian as
    well as the old, and the last time he saw Lavinia, he tried to kill
    her before she stole his power. And he’s been seeking revenge

    Games of Fire Trilogy Book 3

    The time has come to end their punishment or the world.

    For nearly destroying the world in an ancient war, the Ashanti were
    cursed by the Goddess Mhyrah with lifespans of less than a decade. To
    regain normal lives for his people, Beh’kana, the Ashanti King,
    will conquer death by gaining control of the source of all elemental
    magic: the spirit realm. Even if he must burn the world to do so.
    After all, he already killed his closest friend to gain the Ashanti
    throne.
    But his defeat at the Earth Gate nearly cost him his life.
    Lavinia did not seek to be named Guardian of the Spheres when she touched
    each to gain control of elemental power. But now that choice has
    propelled her to being the key to stop the Ashanti. She controls the
    gates that allow magic into the world. And she must close them or the
    Ashanti will cross into the spirit realm and gain power beyond
    imagination, enough to enslave or destroy the world they once sought
    to rule.
    But with the closure of each gate, an elemental power is lost.
    Only two gates remain open. Magic is faint. Just when the fight grows the
    most desperate. To win needed help, Lavinia has promised a man who
    once tried to kill her best friend that she would open the gates and
    restore magic again.
    It might give them the power to fight the Ashanti or it will give their
    enemy the world.
    Discover the end to the epic fantasy journey begun in book 1 of the
    Games of Fire trilogy, Spark of Defiance, and continued through book 2,
    Gates of Fire & Earth. The

    Genre: Epic Fantasy
    After being sold into slavery by her father and accused of a murder she
    didn’t commit, Tiadaria finds herself facing the executioner’s axe.
    The only thing standing in the way is the village Constable.

    After thirty years of loyal service to the Imperium, Royce retired to
    King’s Reach as the village’s Constable. He thought it would be
    the perfect place to rest, relax, and die in peace. He was wrong. In
    an unexpected complication, the slave with her neck on the block
    seems to possess the same magic Royce has hidden all his life.
    Paying off Tiadaria’s bond, Royce takes possession the slave. Now he must
    teach her to trust him, teach her to fight, and teach her about her
    unique abilities before they both run out of time. An ancient menace,
    the Xarundi, have returned. They are the most dangerous enemy
    humanity has ever faced, and they have a thousand years of
    bloodthirsty vengeance to exact.
    The Darkest Hour
    Magic of Solendrea Book 2
    When an agent from the Imperium Intelligence Service shows up on
    Tiadaria’s doorstep, he leaves her with unwelcome news. Recovering
    from their brutal defeat at Dragonfell, the Xarundi are seeking out
    an ancient and incredibly powerful relic buried in the snow and ice
    of the Frozen Frontier.
    Tiadaria travels to the city of Ethergate to seek out an apprentice skilled in
    magical research. Even with his reluctant help, unearthing
    information on the relic proves to be almost impossible until a
    savage turn of events puts them on the right path.
    Now it’s a race against time through some of the most unforgiving
    territory on Solendrea to beat the Xarundi to the relic and stop them
    from unleashing its devastating power on the unsuspecting masses.
    The Pegasus’s Lament
    Magic of Solendrea Book 3
    A desecrated tomb, a missing relic, and cold-blooded murder. The
    streets of Dragonfell are awash in blood and the King has called on
    Tiadaria, the last swordmage, and Wynn, her quintessentialist
    companion, to uncover the nature of the darkness.
    What they find is more dangerous than they could ever imagine and from a
    source they’d have never expected. Now Tiadaria must defeat an
    enemy that knows her almost as well as she knows herself.
    The survival of the Human Imperium is on the line and time is running out
    for the last swordmage and everyone she holds dear.
    Volinette’s Song
    Magic of Solendrea Book 4
    Volinette Terris has everything most girls could want: a famous family, plenty
    of money, and a career as a talented musician. No one would expect
    her to risk losing it all to try and become a mage, but when the
    School of Sorcery opens for the Trial of Admission, that’s exactly
    what she does.
    If only she’d known that winning a place in the Academy of Arcane Arts
    and Sciences would be the least of her problems. Now she finds
    herself accused of murder, tormented by her fellow students, and
    implicated in the theft of a mystical artifact that could bring about
    the end of the world.
    And that’s just the first semester!

    Note from the Author

    Please be aware that All Souls contains spoilers if you haven’t read the
    Swordmage Trilogy, particularly The Pegasus’s Lament. If you
    haven’t, I highly recommend that you read the original trilogy
    before reading All Souls.
    Pirates of the Siren’s Sea
    Magic of Solendrea Book 6

    What do you do when the people you trust the most betray you?

    Tiadaria, the last Swordmage, was once one of the King’s most trusted advisers.
    Now she’s fallen out of favour and has been cast out of the realm she
    helped save from demons and dragons. When pirates start sinking ships
    off the coast of Dragonfell, Tiadaria offers her services to the
    realm, but the pride of Kings is not easily put aside.
    Unwilling to let the Imperium fall, Tiadaria approaches the King’s only
    daughter, a reclusive Princess unseen by the people for almost two
    decades. What happens next is a race against time as Tiadaria and her
    allies commit an act of treason to stop a corrupt sorceress from
    endangering the fate of the world.
    Only a Swordmage can turn an act of sedition into salvation for the
    Imperium in this rousing fantasy tale of swords and sorcery.

    Book Tour: The Ydron Saga

    Awakening
    The Ydron Saga Book 1
    by Raymond Bolton
    Genre: Paranormal Epic Fantasy
    How does a world equipped with bows, arrows and catapults, where steam
    power is just beginning to replace horses and sailing ships, avert a
    conquest from beyond the stars? Prince Regilius has been engineered
    to combat the Dalthin, a predatory alien species that enslaves worlds
    telepathically, and to do so he must unite his people. But when his
    mother murders his father, the land descends into chaos and his task
    may prove impossible. Faced with slaying the one who gave him life in
    order to protect his world, he seeks a better way. Set in a vast and
    varied land where telepaths and those with unusual mental abilities
    tip the course of events, Awakening goes to the heart of family,
    friendship and betrayal.
    Thought Gazer
    The Ydron Saga Book 2
    Everyone who touches you transforms you, if only a little. But if you enter
    their minds, think what they have thought, in effect do what they
    have done, how complete will that transformation be?


    If he had been born an ordinary man, his family would be safe–safe as
    anyone can be in a land torn apart by war. It is his singular gift,
    however, that causes his wife and children to be imprisoned and held
    hostage and him to be used as a tool. Caught up in a struggle between
    opposing warlords and refusing to play the game, Peniff elects to
    take the moral high road. This is the story of a man, in all other
    ways ordinary, rising above his fears to do what he must. Can he free
    his family before his betrayal comes to light? Moreover, what will he
    become before his journey is over?
    Foretellers
    The Ydron Saga Book 3
    In a world facing two divergent futures—eventual freedom or complete
    domination—too many unmade decisions cloud the yet-to-be. Those who
    can see even a tiny portion of the inevitable wield great power.

    In this world where young and old, rich or poor, are at the mercy of
    armed marauders and the armies of the powerful, a warlord’s wrath
    forces a mother and daughter to flee for their lives. Despite being
    prescient, they cannot foresee all that lies ahead. Quickly
    separated, their every effort centers around reunion and survival.
    Without losing sight of these goals, one of them foresees that, if
    she travels to the conflict’s center and lends support to one of
    the two major powers, she has the ability to influence the final
    outcome.
    Foretellers, the third volume of The Ydron Saga, is the second
    book of Awakening’s prequel trilogy.
    Triad
    The Ydron Saga Book 3
    Heroic battles are not always won by the mighty. There are times when even
    the least likely among us play decisive rolls. Less able physically
    than anyone he knows, but paranormally unique, Bardik is recruited by
    a pair of psychics in the hope that, by combining his talent with
    theirs, they can turn looming defeat into victory.

    In this, the concluding chapter to The Ydron Saga, a young man who has
    lost the use of his legs—someone whom earthly culture labels
    paraplegic—agrees to lend his telekinetic talents to the effort to
    bring down a tyrannical warlord.
    Raymond Bolton lives near Portland, Oregon with his wife, Toni, and their two
    cats, Georgie & Sophia.


    Regarding his debut novel, Awakening, multiple Hugo and Nebula Award-winning
    author, Mike Resnick says, “In Awakening, Raymond Bolton presents
    us with an intricate and interesting problem, characters you care
    for, aliens who are alien, and a carefully-thought-out future.”

     

    Matthew J. Pallamary, author of Land Without Evil and Spirit Matters said,
    “Raymond Bolton’s genre shattering Awakening is a skillfully
    woven hybrid of science fiction and fantasy that brings cultural
    conflict to a whole new, thoroughly believable level that goes
    straight to the heart of what really matters.”

     

    International award-winning author of the Daimones Trilogy, Massimo Marino,
    endorsed Awakening, saying, “Bolton navigates through the plot
    lines and the mixed genres (Science Fiction but not exactly, Fantasy
    but not entirely, Paranormal but not completely) with the clear
    gesture of the conductor of a large orchestra. A new voice and author
    who is bound to grow a faithful readership.”

     

    Finally, Britain’s BookViral.com states, “it’s a grand debut. An
    ambitious and well considered SF crossover [that] breathes
    originality into the genre.”

     

    Raymond’s goal is to craft gripping stories about the human condition, whether
    they are set here or another world. He has written award-winning
    poetry and four novels. Awakening, an epic, was released in January,
    2014, and Thought Gazer, an adventure and first volume of a prequel
    trilogy, was released on January 1, 2015. The third in the series,
    Foretellers, came out on March 1 , 2016. The trilogy’s conclusion,
    entitled Triad, aired January 1, 2017. Awakening was recently
    translated into Spanish and was released as El despertar – La saga
    de Ydron on July 1, 2015. Amazon has already listed El despertar as
    the Number One New Release in Ciencia Ficción.

    Book Tour: The Halfling

    by Melissa H. North
    Genre: Fantasy
    “There are three things I know are
    certain in my life. Firstly, I am a cursed halfling—part faerie,
    part human. Another thing I know is I hate faeries. They are
    deceitful, evil, and conniving.
    The third thing I know—and it is
    a certainty—nothing is guaranteed in this life, including your
    sanity, your family, and your world as you know it.” –
    Eliana
    Eliana finds herself propelled into a world she longs
    to stay away from; a world where nothing is what it seems. In a race
    against minds, she must master her magic and fight an unimaginable
    darkness, stretching throughout the realm of Grandelione. The same
    darkness that cursed her mother and, now, her half-brother is laying
    dormant in her too.
    It grows stronger with each passing day.
    Left with two options, she must choose to fight and bring
    peace back to Grandelione or plunge into a world of darkness and
    murder.
    Can she learn to harness her magic and bring
    peace back to Grandelione and her family?
    Or will the
    darkness within consume her?
    Pursued by her brothers from the Faerie
    realm of Grandelione, Eliana Ariarose flees through the streets of
    New York City.
    Her brothers are sworn enemies, with
    the youngest, Caelian, having battled to earn his title of Crown
    Prince from Aemon – a royal who vows bloodshed in order to have his
    claim to the throne restored.
    As Eliana flees, she makes startling
    discoveries about herself and her real identity, as well as the truth
    about her upbringing.
    Eliana meets many beings from the
    Faerie world. Some would die to keep her safe, while others would
    happily steal her immense and unusual powers, right before destroying
    her heart and soul.
    Writing has always
    been a hobby and cathartic experience for me. Turning my passion into
    a fulfilling career as an Author has been one of my greatest dreams.
    I write because creating something that didn’t exist before is as
    close to magic as I’ll ever get. All you need is imagination.
    I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the
    influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. I
    love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into the
    research, investigation, and production of stories I feel are worth
    writing about. I am a curious and proactive Author, interested in
    preserving the foundations set by classical literature by adapting
    them to modern themes and trends.
