MIDDLE GRADE – For READERS 9-13 Years Old
Coming Soon To: Barnes and Noble.
Frendyl Krune and the Stone Princess by Kira A. McFadden
This 3rd book in the Amüli Chronicles: Frendyl Krune series of middle grade fantasies is ideal for readers 9-13 years old (but we know you older folks will love it too).
Not long ago, Frendyl Krune joined his Uncle Melroc on a quest to find the fabled magical gem known as the Blood of the Sun. The gem’s power helped Frendyl learn to cast magic—an amazing feat for someone as young as him—but the gift comes with a cost. The stone is fused with Frendyl’s heart, and no matter where he goes, the stone’s dangerous power threatens those he cares for.
To make matters worse, the sorcerer who released an imprisoned amüli claiming to be the rightful king gave Frendyl almost no information about his missing family, and the Pretender is chasing Frendyl across the land. All Frendyl wants is to find his father and cousin, and get rid of the Blood of the Sun. No one knows how to remove the gem without ripping his heart out along with it, which means he has little choice but to face the Pretender—at least, until he learns of someone who might have the power to save him.
A young princess skilled in delicate magic might be able to help, and Frendyl is determined to find her. Although she lived four hundred years ago, there is hope: legend says an envious witch cast a spell on the princess to make her last the ages.
Too bad that spell turned the princess to stone.

In the Company of the Dead by Ciara Ballintyne
This dark epic fantasy is the first book in The Sundered Oath trilogy. Watch for parts 2 and 3 to release in 2017 and 2018.
Only a fool crosses a god, but Ellaeva and Lyram will do anything to get what they want.
Chosen as a five-year-old orphan to be the Left Hand of Death, Ellaeva has nothing to call her own—nothing except a desire to avenge her murdered parents. Her duties leave her no time to pursue the man responsible, until both her work and revenge lead to the same place—the lonely castle where Lyram Aharris is serving out his exile for striking his prince.
Lyram is the son of a duke and third in line for the throne. Hell bent on drowning his grief for his murdered wife in a whiskey bottle, Lyram is ill-equipped to deal with the arrival of a mysterious army. When the castle comes under siege, he believes his prince is behind it, only to have his fears dismissed as the paranoia of a grief-stricken drunkard by those closest to him. He dare not even voice aloud his suspicions of the prince’s involvement in his wife’s murder.
Ellaeva’s arrival brings hope, until she reveals she has not come for the siege, but instead she hunts the castle for a hidden necromancer dedicated to the dark god of decay—a necromancer with a personal interest in using Lyram for his own nefarious purposes.
As the siege lengthens, and with the identity of the necromancer unknown, Lyram finds his faith in those closest to him undermined by treachery and sabotage. Not knowing who he can trust, he turns to the one person whose honesty is unimpeachable – the Left Hand of Death herself.
Caught up in their pursuit of vengeance, and desperately trying to save themselves from both political machinations and clashing gods, Ellaeva and Lyram never realise that the greatest threat comes from an unexpected quarter.
