Servant of the Gods Book 1

by Luciana Cavallaro

Genre: Historical Fantasy Fiction

A true page-turner, in a similar vein to Wilbur Smith and David Gemmell, is an action-packed adventure story catapulting a reluctant hero from one dangerous encounter to another.

Evan has been having some very strange dreams.

The Perth-based architect dismissed an unexpected phone call from an entrepreneur in Greece, asking him to restore his family home, as the ravings of a crank. Until, that is, the dreams begin, each more vivid than the last. A dream encounter with a mysterious character called Zeus sees him catapulted back in time to 500 years before the birth of Christ. 

Evan finds himself quickly embroiled in a plot to prevent the birth of Christianity, an unwilling player in an epic struggle between the old gods and the new, fighting for his life.

Can Evan complete his quest before he and the gods are lost to history?

Shadow Scarred

Curse of the Unnamed Book 2

The Book of Shadow was found, but the quest continues…

Llyris Fildarae is still reeling with the news of her heritage imparted by an old man claiming to be the great mage Amnayel Prisma—doubtful, though he’s proven able to perform unusual wonders even a magik couldn’t. He cured a boy, yet now demands a stave to aid in healing a fallen knight.

The quest she and her companions embark on requires them to travel to the Obsidian Fields, a place no one has visited since time immemorial. Even Prisma himself—if that is who he is—cannot tell them what it may look like or what to expect once there.

What dangers will they face? Magic? Deadly curses? The undead again?

No one knows. Not even a Shadow Scarred.

Scroll up and one-click purchase to follow the exciting journey of Llyris and her companions as their adventure continues in Shadow Scarred.

Meet The Author: Interview with CB Samet

Christina is a four-time award winning author in thriller, romantic suspense, and fantasy.

She is a mother of two energetic boys and a Jack Russel Terrier. She is a lover of suspense, adventure, and happy endings. She completed The Avant Champion epic fantasy series at over 450,000 words, and is working on a new urban fantasy trilogy. The Rider Files books 1-7 are complete, and she’s plotting and writing books 8 and 9. She writes action and adventure in fantasy and romantic​ suspense genres with strong female leads.

Q & A with CB Samet

How do you maintain your creativity?

I have a full-time day job so my weekly writing consists of squeezing in time in the evenings around the boys’ dinner and activities. I find a change of scenery is motivation. I write copiously on vacations or plane rides, especially when there is no distraction from emails or social media. Also, I brainstorm about novels on walks or runs so I have to mix in these breaks from staring at a screen or notebook.

Describe your book in one sentence or fewer than 25 words.

Ragnarok happened. Survivors converged on earth many millennia ago, breeding and blending with humans. Now, a secret battle of bloodlines is being waged in the shadows of the real world. 

What do you hope people will get out of your book?

First and foremost, I hope people get enjoyment—an escape to a fantasy world of magic and mayhem woven with romance. Next, I hope that readers will relate to the characters’ struggles. While we may not have magic and the world isn’t on the brink of destruction, we all face intermittent overwhelming challenges. We may react to these challenges as the characters in my urban fantasy series do—fear, insecurity, anger, and self-doubt—before we transform those feelings into productive engery to face the task at hand.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

My superpower of choice would be psychokinesis—the ability to move objects with my mind. After all, it’s a rather Jedi trait to have (more than just moving rocks, though). As a writer, I envision churning more books out if I could jog and write at the same time… while walking the dog! Imagine how easy I could fix my next cup of inspirational coffee without disrupting the writing process. As a mother of two boys, I could be reining hide-and-seek champion forever (insert diabolic laugh here); I picture myself levitating to a closet ceiling, undetected. And, with the ability to manipulate objects, I could finally beat my husband in tennis! Of course, I would also use my powers toward achieving world peace.

Do you have a favorite author who you look to for inspiration?

In my youth, I enjoyed Dan Brown, John Grisham, and Tom Clancy. I devoured Michael Crichton books. More recently, I’ve picked up a lot of Nora Roberts books. She writes such an array of contemporary romance, paranormal romance, thrillers, and romantic suspense that she’s inspired me to explore multiple genres with my own writing. I also admire her determination and work ethic. In addition, I enjoy Janet Evanovich, Lee Child, Jim Butcher, Sandra Brown, and Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling).

Outside of writing, what do you consider to be fun?

Pina coladas and getting caught in the rain! But more practically… I like playing tennis, family time, beach trips, jogging, and walking the dog (we have a 16 year-old Jack Russell Terrier). And of course, I like to read. I’ve always got a paperback at home, an ebook on my phone, and an audiobook for my commute.

On what are you currently working?

I am currently writing Book 2 in this series

The current sequence of this series is as follows:

  • Raven’s Flight, prequel novella
  • Raine Down, Book 1
  • Rosalyn’s Run, novella
  • Storm Surge, Book 2 (releases Spring 2023)
  • Anka’s Orb, novella
  • Sky Fall, Book 3

Raine Down

The Shadow Guardians Book 1

by CB Samet

Genre: Urban Fantasy, Romantic Suspense

Ragnarok happened. Survivors converged on earth many millennia ago, breeding and blending with humans. Now, a secret battle of bloodlines is being waged in the shadows of the real world.

Raine Thoren became a Shadow Guardian to protect non-magical humans from threats they aren’t even aware of. But the latest killer on the loose has stealth and power unlike any adversary she’s faced. She won’t be able to bring this one down alone.

FBI Special Agent Will Decker prefers to work by himself. When a mysterious woman saves his life, she’s suddenly assigned to work with him in his quest to track an elusive killer. The more he learns about his new partner, Raine, and what demons lurk in shadows, the more fantasy becomes reality.

If they’re going to stop the demon and unravel prophecies of the future, they’ll need to work as a team and unlock each others’ hearts and untapped powers.

***Raine Down is the captivating first book in The Shadow Guardians urban fantasy romantic suspense series. If you like engaging characters, sizzling tension, and magic, then you’ll love this series.***

Book Spotlight: Beyond The Next Star by Melody Johnson

Beyond the Next Star

Love Beyond Book 1

by Melody Johnson

Genre: SciFi Romance

An intolerable order. A desperate charade. A deadly secret…

Before Commander Torek Renaar can return to active duty, he’s ordered to purchase an animal companion to help relieve his PTSD symptoms. But having been a caretaker for and lost a loved one, keeping even one little human alive is a challenge he feels doomed to fail. It doesn’t help that his animal companion is the newest, most exotic breed on the market, demanding constant attention, daily grooming, and delicate handling. If she doesn’t die first in his incompetent care, she’ll be the death of him.

After witnessing the murder of her domestication specialist, Delaney McCormick allows her new owner to treat her like the pet he believes her to be. If anyone suspects she’s more intelligent than a golden retriever, her murder would be next. She endures the humiliation of being washed, the tediousness of being trained to “sit” and “come”, and the intrigue of hearing private conversations. But in Torek’s care, she finds something unexpected on this Antarctic planet, something she never had in all her years on Earth while house-hopping between foster families: a home.

As companionship grows to love, must Delaney continue the charade, acting like an animal and hiding from the murderer waiting for her misstep? Or can she trust Torek with her secrets, even if the truth threatens everything he holds dear—and both their lives?
