Meanwhile, the Teru de Fa, a priestly and mercantile order established after the demise of He Who Sleeps, continues to hunt down and kill those like Filliš, as these must never come into their powers, and have offspring. The Teru de Fa hunt children. Ever-watchful Astarandal, old as the mountains, looks on from Nadan Rasar, brothers turn on each other and Farzih travels on. Eccia, Mother of Mothers, cares for her many children while Godo debates his trusted mare. All their lives and those of many others will forever change once Giscard has done what he was ordered to do and Filliš is found out. His discovery creates fear in the minds of many, opportunity in the hands of a few and sadness in the heart of one.

And the dreams, they have come back.

The Flying Dutchman BLEAK FUTURE

by Nils Visser

Bleak Future 1622: Threat of renewed warfare with Spain throws an ominous shadow over the young Dutch republic. Liselotte Haelen, a physician's daughter, has to cope with other shadows as well, trapped in an unhappy household as she is. Her prodigal cousin, Peter Haelen, has built a ship like no other but who will crew her? Folks are superstitious, wary of innovation. Some say Peter has defied the natural order of things. Wagging tongues claim his ship is cursed ere she's even launched. Other aspects are at play. Echoes from the past. Realms below the waves. Hidden forces that confound logic, as deep as the ocean and as wide as the sky.

A story 376 years in the making. Inspired by Willem Bontekoe's Journal (1646), German author Philipp Korber penned Der Fliegende Hollander in 1849. This work inspired Dutch author Piet Visser's De Vliegende Hollander in 1901.

In 2018 Nils Visser started writing The Flying Dutchman BLEAK FUTURE, using elements of his great-grand-uncle Piet Visser's story, but thoroughly modernizing this origins story of the infamous phantom ship for a contemporary audience.

Korber's and Piet Visser's main protagonist, Peter Haelen, plays a major part, but Nils Visser opted to tell the story through the eyes of Peter's cousin Liselotte, who only appears very briefly as 'Lotje' in Piet Visser's work, very much as a damsel in distress. Nils Visser would like to say Liselotte is his invention, but this renewed character is anything but a damsel in distress and would probably shoot the author if he tried to claim ownership.

The paperback is beautifully illustrated by Hastings based artist Julie Gorringe. She accepted the challenge to provide an illustration for each chapter. During the writing process she read each new chapter multiple times before she decided what she would draw, giving her as much creative freedom as possible within the context of illustrating a story.

Far Shore A quick-witted thief is sentenced to a faraway land of magic, myths, and monsters.

Charity is a thief who survived Byzantia's deadly streets by thinking fast and running faster...
Until a heist gone wrong saw her imprisoned on a ship sailing to the far side of the world.

Farshore, the Emperor's First Colony across the great sea, is humanity's lone outpost in a land inhabited by monsters, wild magic, and races from legend. Turns out, myths are just as deadly as a knife in the dark.

A quick temper and a sharp tongue soon earn her a deadly quest with a group of outcasts who would readily kill each other if not for the threat hanging over their heads. Their only hope of survival lies in working together.

When their quest unleashes an ancient king bent on conquest, Charity must adapt and learn to trust her new companions if she hopes to stop him. If she fails, two worlds will fall with her.

The Farshore Chronicles is fast-paced Sword and Sorcery in the tradition of RA Salvatore, David Eddings, and Mercedes Lackey. If you enjoy action, adventure, humor, and compelling characters set in a magical world, you will love this fantasy series.

Song and Wind

by B.A. Johnson, Alexis D. Johnson

Song and Wind The Sirens taste our weakness.

They crept in through the cracks of our broken desert nation. While we shed our blood warring against foreign men, the Sirens hunt with talons sharp, snaring us with their song, feasting on our flesh. They are the hawks among doves...

My name is Medlar, and I am a true Desert Son. I sacrificed everything to free my people and save our way of life, but it came to nothing.

The war took everything from me. Everything, except my brother.

Now, the foreigners rule my homeland with a cruel fist. My own people betrayed me and I am little more than a dishonored soldier, destined to the executioner's axe for my crimes.

I have but one chance to redeem myself - defend my enemies against the Sirens. Can I bring myself to protect the very people that murdered my father and burned my home to ash? Or do I let the monstrous creatures devour them as the war did my soul...

Kindle Unlimited

Will of the Wayfinder The immortal lilka heal the wounds of a fractured world, but when the spirits of nature are silenced...

Thaniel Swift's life is about to change. The inexperienced Wayfinder sets out on his first mission to explore the untamed wilds of Koranth. But when he joins a band of storied heroes to uncover the cause of an ominously deserted village, the hunt will lead Thaniel far from home, into the remnants of a long-forgotten civilization, and dangers beyond his dreams.

In the east, an ancient sorceress wields forbidden magic to attain the object of her obsession, no matter how much nature itself cries out in fear and pain. To achieve her desires, she will destroy not only the guardian spirits of the land, but the humans as well, leaving the continent of Koranth in desolation.

Thrown into the unpredictable wilderness, with growing talents he barely understands, Thaniel uses magic and skill to lead his new allies further into a dying land, seeking answers. Only with the wisdom of the lilka, and the enigmatic aid of one of the Builders, will Thaniel and his companions have any chance at all.

But will it be enough to stop the Queen of Dust?

The Telepathy Office

by Keith Gell

The Telepathy Office The vast Metropolis, a city inhabited by goblins, is in the throes of an industrial revolution forged in magic.

Manna, magical energy captured in physical form, fuels its factories that produce artefacts, to be traded across the galaxy. Wizards are the new elite. They use their magical skill to amass great wealth, and in turn, political power.

Resentment grows among the mundane goblin proletariat. Magic impacts every aspect of goblin life, used to communicate by telepathy, control weather, and heal the sick. But alongside the benefits come risks: Mutation from manna pollution, and magical diseases of vampirism and lycanthropy.

But the biggest threat of all is demonic invasion. Vampires steal a book to summon a demon. Infernal manna finds its way onto the market place, with awful consequences. Grand Master Pharaoh Henry must recruit a team of demon hunters to stop a full-scale invasion from Hell.

But Henry is a dangerous fanatic, and those who work for him end up dead, or worse. No right-minded wizard would risk death, or losing his soul, so he recruits who he can: A drug addicted augurist, a dishonoured ork, a cowardly policeman, a fugitive vampire, and a vain fashionista who shares her mind with a demon.

Against the backdrop of armed revolution, they investigate a Satanic plot, to prevent the opening of a gate to Hell itself.
