Rise of the Forgotten Sun by Jon Monson

Best Indie Book Award for Fantasy, 2019!

All Aydiin ever wanted was to see the world and maybe discover an ancient civilization or two. A life of scholarly solitude and adventure was more than enough for him. He never wanted to play politics. He never wanted to get married. He most certainly never dreamed of becoming a god.

Yet when he ventured into the depths of the Soulless Desert, he found... something- a power so ancient it has been forgotten by mankind. That day unleashed a chain of events that, once started, cannot be stopped.

It is the Rise of the Forgotten Sun.

It is the beginning of the end.
Siege of the Northland

One island: The Great Crossland. Four nations: South, West, East and North. Only one remains free.
So begins Siege of the Northland, the tale of a fearless young warrior called Jesyka: the Northland’s one true heir of the ancient Tribe of Skea. When called upon to fulfil her destiny and stand with her adopted people against the infamous warlord, Volger, Jesyka is drawn into an adventure which will touch her heart and scar her soul.

With King Broehain of the Northland strangely set upon appeasing Volger, his son, Lord Aran, joins forces with Jesyka and her guardians to infiltrate the warlord’s lair. As dark disturbing secrets are uncovered, Jesyka and Aran are plunged into a desperate battle to protect all that they hold dear.
With the odds stacked heavily against them, the cost of their defiance becomes clear: the threat of their own destruction and the loss of their beloved Northland.

Dragonlyst by Randall Seely

A secret organization. A life altering dralchom. Lawbreakers taking advantage of both.
Jefrie was brilliant. And he knew it. His passion was dralchomy, and he was determined to become the best dralchemist in the world.

Kloin was his wise master. He saw Jefrie's raw talent and pushed him harder. But kept his most powerful dralchoms to himself.

Arthur was too awkward to have any real role other than being Jefrie's best friend. But they let him pretend to be their guard.

Tret was the mastermind behind the whole operation.

Together, they formed a successful team that created and sold dralchoms…potions that could control or accelerate the dragon curse flowing through the veins of the people of Ardonor.

When they are asked to provide an inordinate amount of dragonlyst, they didn't care it was with a mysterious organization that participated in dark rituals and sacrifices. All they cared about was the massive gold being offered and the opportunity to make more dragonlyst.

But when they accidentally uncover a secret of the organization, events are set into motion that has the entire team running for their lives. But death isn't always the worst outcome…

…dragonlyst can turn you into a dragon.
Twisted Earths by Untethered Realms

Twisted Earths is a collection of tales from Untethered Realms, a group of speculative fiction authors. The stories are as varied and rich as the types of soil on this and other planets—sandy loam, clay, knotted with roots and vines, dreaded paths through unexplored planets, and in enchanted forests, lit by candlelight and two moons.

M. Pax, author of the series, The Backworlds and The Rifters spins a tale called Patchworker 2.0. Specialists with digital interfaces are the only ones who can distinguish between biological energy and mechanical pulses, and "patch" AIs, which hold the world together. Patchworker Evalyn Shore meets up with an AI with deadly intent.

Cherie Reich, known for her epic fantasy series The Fate Challenges and The Foxwick Chronicles, presents Lady Death. Umbria, a beautiful and powerful swordsmith, is given an impossible task by her brother Leon when he asks, "You are the assassin. Are you scared to destroy Death when you are up to your elbows in it?"

Angela Brown is the author of the paranormal Shadow Jumpers and NEO Chronicles series. In her story, In The Know, Jacob, a loyal family man is struggling to stay out of debt when he's hired to report on big plans for a future Detroit. He's given a mysterious manila envelope with instructions to "open it alone" or pay the price. With switchback twists you won't see coming, a debt of a much steeper cost is what he just might end up paying for his involvement.

Catherine Stine, author of the futuristic thrillers, Fireseed One and Ruby's Fire, offers The Day of The Flying Dogs, a sinister tale of brilliant, troubled NYC high-school student, Theo. He experiences a day at Coney Island that includes drugs, delusions, a lonely capybara, Nathan's hotdogs and a mind-bending lesson in our very twisted universe.

Christine Rains, known best for her paranormal series The Thirteenth Floor, gives us The Ole Saint, a story at once sweet, horrific and heartrending. Ezra longs to fit in and have boys stop calling him witch and freak, yet his unique supernatural skill sets him apart, and the last gift from The Ole Saint cinches the deal.

Graeme Ing, known for his young adult fantasy, Ocean of Dust presents The Malachite Mine, a gripping, scream-inducing ride. Whatever was Mary thinking when she accepted her husband's gift of a most terrifying twenty-first birthday celebration in an abandoned Russian mine?

River Fairchild, author of the Jewels of Chandra series, presents A Grand Purpose. Rosaya and her cousin, Drianna are soon to be married off, but Rosaya is unhappy with her assigned match. She's much more intoxicated by the older Firrandor, a wizard she hardly knows. When Rosaya is accused of killing an oracle boy, all bets are off, not only for her love, but her freedom.

Gwen Gardner, who pens the cozy paranormal mystery series, Indigo Eady, adds to her collection with Ghostly Guardian. Indigo and her rib-tickling ghost-busters must travel to a dangerous pirate-laden past in order to unearth a curmudgeonly eighteenth century spirit that is plaguing the Blind Badger Pub.

Misha Gerrick, whose War of Six Crowns series is forthcoming, gives us a story called Red Earth and White Light. Emily, a young ghost bride has long haunted a house. She longs to cross over into the afterlife, but she's trapped in memories of lilies and betrayal.

The Edge of Darkness by D.K. Homberg

They called him the Volatar. He came from nothing. Found his power. Became a legend, then lost it all.

Now he has all the power in the world but can't touch it. With war growing, an old enemy on his heels, his best friend by his side, only the north holds the secret to reconnecting with his lost power.

But war has a way of pushing old heroes aside.

Hevith Alaster knew nothing of the Hith when their dark magic took his family away. Life on the wagon train had been simple. Keep moving north, stay ahead of the war.

But war found him all the same.

Hurt, humbled, and left to rot in a northern prison, Hevith must carve out a new life for himself in the wake of tragedy--but only if he can find a way to break free before the Hith break him. Either he must rise to the challenge or he will be yet another casualty on the Hith's path to total domination.
Chaos and Retribution by Eric T. Knight

The Dragon Queen of Chaos sends her minions to prepare the world for her return...
And all that stands in her way are three children with the powers of Stone, Sea and Sky.

Fen is only a boy when his city is sacked by enemy invaders. His mother is cut down before his eyes. Yet somehow, when the blade is turned on him, he survives without a scratch. But the attack awakens something inside him, something that killed his father years ago.

Karliss was touched by the wind at birth, destined to be the greatest wind shaman his people have ever seen. But he is careless with his power and he ignores the warnings about the madness that afflicts those who don't protect themselves against the spirits in the wind. When a ritual goes wrong and strikes down his mentor, Karliss suddenly has to deal with the true responsibilities of power.

Aislin came from the sea, her origins a mystery. Within her is an innate power over water, as natural as breathing. But she lives in a world of her own, emotionally isolated from everyone else, including Netra, the woman who is raising her. Bullied by the other children, Netra fears that one day Aislin will turn her power on them.

These three can stop the Dragon Queen, but only if they can learn to master, not just their powers, but themselves...
