Lyra McCauley receives an alarming letter from the coroner who evaluated her deceased aunt, originally thought to have died of cancer. The news causes Lyra to take leave from her job and travel from sunny Tampa to the frozen island community in northern Michigan. Questioning whether Dragonspeir magic was responsible for her aunt’s death, she resolves to learn the truth and accepts the Imperial Dragon’s appointment into the Alliance sorcery training.

Additionally, becoming proficient in magic craft is the only way she can bridge the gap between her mortal human world and her lover’s. Cullen, a 220-year-old wizard, is dependent upon his Dragonspeir magic for immortality. He is her only family now; she cannot lose him.

Evil forces block her and try to steal her inherited scribal aura. Riding a stealth dragon, a cloaked rider pursues Lyra. Both the Alliance and Dark Realm alchemists lay tricks and traps. Her aura equals that of the first and most powerful Scribe, but will Lyra’s novice training allow her to discover the truth? Will she be able to be with Cullen, or will the Dark Realm keep them apart?

What they’re saying about it:

“If you love books full of magic, adventure, and Dragons this series is for you!” ~Brandy at All the Fun Starts After Dark

“Moore weaves a tale of love, magic and danger that draws you into the story. You want to keep reading and see what happens next for Lyra. I was honestly sad when the book ended and wanted more. I’ve decided that I need to go back and read the first one. You can pick up the second book and not be lost, but there are references back that don’t make a lot of sense if you haven’t read the first story. The book was well written, stands alone on it’s own and is a great example of fantasy and magic for those who enjoy magic in their stories. ~Margaret at The Book Hoard

“I have to admit to being a sucker for Dragon books.  I love dragons and magic.  I love that the animals (dragons, unicorns, owl, etc) are fully realized individual entities in this book.  A romance with adventure, a quest, a unicorn, dragons, and a happy ending is just what I needed today.

Marsha Moore has created a unique, fascinating world that I would love to visit… okay maybe after all the fighting is done, but visit nonetheless.  The character, human and otherwise, have individual personality trait with their own idiosyncrasy.  It was fun to see them interact and develop as the story progressed.” ~Mindy at Books, Books, Books

The Sixth Wife by Laura Lond
Type: Novella
Genre: Fantasy, Historical Fantasy
Price: $0.99
Where to Get It:
Amazon (Kindle)    Barnes and Noble

*
*
Adelia has no one to blame for her heartache. She’d been cautioned, many times and by many people. Everyone except her mother had told her it was folly to marry an elf, citing a host of reasons. Adelia knew their warnings were not unfounded. She knew he was very different from her and her kind, he was much older, and he’d had five other wives before her. She didn’t care. She had chosen her path.
*
What they’re saying:
*
“This sweet novella was like going to a fancy restaurant with delectable dishes,
but tiny portions. I loved everything: the characters, the allure of another
land with a mysterious species mingling with humans, the complicated
relationships, controlled passions, and how the most beautiful understood that
beauty was only skin deep. The ending was sudden; the storyline was succulent
with promise of many possible developments. My appetite has been piqued; I am
ready with fork and knife. Tragically, the kitchen has closed.

I can only hope this gifted writer is somewhere working on the continuation.”

(
What they’re saying about it:
(
“I started by reading the sample and was hooked. As a Star Trek fan, I could easily imagine Nathan as a young Kirk. The story was fast moving – never a dull moment. Once I started it was hard to stop. I just had to find out what was going to happen next or how they would get out of their predicament. When I finished this episode, I immediately went out and grabbed the next two in the series and look forward to continuing the adventure.”
(
“I would definitely recommend this book to any reader, not just sci-fi buffs. Very interesting story, good characters with lots of good background to make you really know the characters. Hope to see more books in this series.”
(
“I was browsing for something new to read and came across this. The reviews sounded good so I downloaded the sample. I read that and I was hooked. This series is tremendous. The author is very good at building the excitement. It was a quick read for me as the action kept pulsing through and I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend this and the subsequent volumes. Thank you Mr. Brown, you are making SciFi fun for me again.”
