Queen of Egypt

by Kylie Quillinan

She knows she’s going to kill the man she loves. She just doesn’t know why yet.

Ankhesenamun needs to produce an heir to the throne — quickly. Pharaoh Tutankhamun is young and weak. His chief advisors are planning his quiet removal and Ankhesenamun hopes to hold them off by producing an heir who can become a stronger Pharaoh.

When Pharaoh’s advisors move the court from the desert city of Akhetaten back to ancient Memphis, Ankhesenamun is thrown into a new world of danger, secrets, and old gods. Her dreams warn her of a blond-haired man who she will fall desperately in love with — and who will die by her own hand.

When the man from her dreams suddenly enters her life, she realises just how hard it’s going to be to stay away from him. Forgetting the warnings, she throws herself into an affair with him. After all, she’s supposed to be producing an heir. As his secrets start to be revealed, she searches for a way to save him. But saving his life might lead him to a fate worse than death.

Queen of Egypt is the first book in a series set in 18th Dynasty Egypt in a world where the old gods have been worshipped for thousands of years and magic is a matter of belief. For readers of dark fantasy who enjoy an historical setting.

The Bastard’s Refuge

by Brian O’Rourke

Only Galeran can save the children of the Abbey.

The island nation of Wrodor had enjoyed relative peace for generations, but a short two months ago, the army of the Ra-Haizur set foot on the southern shores. Numbering in the hundreds of thousands, the Ra-Haizur’s soldiers quickly took the peaceful hamlets and villages of the south and now march on the King’s capital, where a final battle will determine the fate of two nations.

In the far north, tucked safely away in a sacred abbey, hundreds of fatherless children live among the quiet tranquility of the Bronze Rise. In the past, bastards were hunted and killed in order to maintain certainty in noble succession, but years ago the King and nobility met in secret and agreed to send these children to the Abbey of Bronze, where they would be educated and not be forced to live in fear of assassination.

Galeran is one of these orphans. On the eve of his 18th birthday, he faces the biggest decision of his life: enter the Order of Bronze and become a monk within the abbey, or risk a life on the run with the woman he loves.

Fate, as it always does, has other plans for him.

When the Abbey of Bronze is attacked by three hundred of the Ra-Haizur’s most elite soldiers, Galeran’s journey begins. As protector of the other bastard children, he must lead them through a war-torn, blood-soaked land to the questionable safety of the Kirc Woodland. He will be challenged by bandits, outlaws, the Ra-Haizur’s monsters, but most of all, by his own conscience. Galeran never wanted to be a leader, but with the King and most of the nobility killed in the war with the Ra-Haizur, and the land in turmoil, Galeran might just be next in line …

With the Ra-Haizur’s wizard and thousands of soldiers closing in, and left with few choices, Galeran inspires the disparate peoples of the Kirc Woodland to ally and prepare for the coming battle inside an ancient ruin where once, long ago, a legendary battle was fought and great heroes were named, earning their place in history.

Now Galeran and his friends hope to earn their place too.

The Bastard’s Refuge is the first in a new heroic fantasy series by author Brian O’Rourke. Join Galeran and his friends on their incredible, life-changing journey. Fans of heroic fantasy, sword and sorcery, and epic fantasy will love this series. If you enjoy books by David Gemmell, Jeff Wheeler, Kel Kade, Bernard Cornwell, and Alec Hutson, you will love this series.

Bullies at the academy don’t think I belong. Smoldering fae, vampire, and shifter men are obsessed with me for different reasons: attraction, hate, suspicion. And who the hell is the sexy ghost-man haunting my dreams?

I’m trapped in a place where I’m always looking over my shoulder, and I can’t even trust my own shadow…
