Shield of Kings
by Christina Ochs
At eighteen, Devyn is already a general.
He knows he’s up to the job …
… even if no one else thinks so.
But maybe the job is too much to handle. He has to whip a bunch of spoiled, undisciplined brats into a deadly cavalry and lead them to victory. All while having serious doubts about his cause, AND trying to convince the woman he loves to take a chance on him.
Devyn isn’t sure he can handle it all, but giving up is not an option.
… or is it?
Carina retired from the army to start a family.
Now she finds herself leading a rebellion.
Even worse, she’s on a collision course with Devyn. When the first battle goes more horribly than she ever imagined, can she stay in the fight? Or will she turn her back on the war to salvage what’s left of her life?
Civil war consumes a kingdom, ensnaring rich and poor alike. The fight rages at city walls, across vast battlefields, and in the hearts of every citizen and soldier.
Another fast-paced historical fantasy from the author of the Desolate Empire Series.

The Scarlet Hopewell Box Set
by Brandon Charles West
“”A wild ride through a magical kingdom and a post-apocalyptic earth.” —Amazon reviewer
Scarlet Hopewell keeps dreaming about a world where winged creatures sculpt with light, dogs talk, and Scarlet is the guest of honor in an enchanted castle under the roots of a mighty oak tree. One day her father brings home a stray pup with eerie blue eyes. Dakota is loving and smart—maybe too smart. News shows start to take an interest. Ominous storms have everyone on edge. Scarlet’s dream world keeps getting darker and more vivid.
When three beautiful, silver-voiced men blow the front door off its hinges on Christmas Eve, Dakota leads the Hopewells in their escape through the winter woods—right into the world of Scarlet’s dreams.
With two worlds, sundry rowdy dwarves, two remarkable dogs, a sinister prince, a dark army, a pair of swashbuckling pirates, and just one ordinary girl to save them all, the five-book Scarlet Hopewell series is a classic fantasy in the tradition of Narnia and The Hobbit.
