As a thank-you present for hosting Vanessa on my blog, I got both “Wizard of Ends” eBooks from her. I read them in October and loved them. What I like about them is that the characters feel so alive. The stubborn refusal of Lashlor Leaflin to use magic unless severely threatened is refreshing. And King Lanaran’s love for his wife, although it causes some big problems, is something most women dream of. The villain is strong enough to cause the heroes some really big difficulties, but not so big that this becomes a Don Quixote fight against windmills. Also, the writing held just enough detail to keep me grounded in the world. If you get a chance, get yourself copies of both books on Smashwords (Book 1: Wizard of Ends, Book 2: Dark Creature).
So, when Vanessa asked if I would host a one day book blast for her, I couldn’t refuse. She and her colleague TC Southwell have bundled eleven novels and two short stories into a gigantic volume called “Doorway to Destiny”. For a short time, this huge amount of reading pleasure will be available for 99ct only. Don’t be put off by the low price. Both writers are skilled (I’ve read books by both of them). This offer is clearly a bargain. I will get a copy myself.
With eight novels by TC Southwell and three novels and two anthologies by Vanessa Finaughty, this box set offers fantasy and sci-fi lovers escapism that will keep you up long past your bedtime. Dive into fantastic worlds and meet fascinating characters whose trials and tribulations will enchant and inspire. Discover how a vengeful assassin reshapes the fate of three kingdoms and share in a quest to discover the origins of mankind, then follow the tale of a young queen’s fight to be free with the aid of a combat cyborg. Two short story anthologies spice up the fare with dragons, sorcerers and magic galore, and a child of another god strives to save his world from mankind’s ravages. When a mortal dark god treads a tragic path as he rises to destroy the Overworld, a brave young girl risks her life to try to change his savage ways. Each hero and heroine takes a definitive step through a doorway to destiny as he or she seeks to right wrongs and save worlds.
