Book Spotlight: Anaerfell and the Thrice Nine Legends

Today I revisit an epic fantasy book, Anaerfell, by Joshua Robertson and J.C. Boyd (now available for free) as well as spotlight the authors' entire Thrice Nine Legends book series (now in a digital box set). Enjoy.


And now a word from the author...

After nearly twenty years since its conception, the first volume of the Thrice Nine Legends Saga is finally complete. Delve into NINE epic tales, spanning over 1000 years of history and 2000 pages, with death-defying characters and grimdark schemes, which frequently explore the darker side of humanity. Based on Slavic folklore and legend, Thrice Nine Legends will stay with you long after the last page is turned.

In celebration, the internationally award-winning story and the first book in the saga, Anaerfell, is free wherever books are sold.


Anaerfell (The Blood of Dragons: Book 1)




2017 International Award-Winning Novel in Epic Fantasy


Drast and Tyran might be considered a bit black-hearted, or even immoral. Drast is cunning but reckless, hunting for admiration. Tyran is calculating but tactless, searching for affection. When the two brothers set aside their ambitions to fulfill their father's desire for immortality, they readily discover many opportunities for redemption. Now, while wielding a powerful magic that drains their life, Drast and Tyran will embark on a maddening quest, facing skin-switchers, dragons, and the God of the Dead.

Darling Girls by Thorne and Cross (Tamara Thorne and Alistair Cross)






Fang Meets Fang

The vampires of Candle Bay and Crimson Cove come together for the Biting Man Festival in Eternity, California, to celebrate a centuries-old tradition that quickly turns murderous as they’re faced with old enemies, uncontrolled bloodlust, and the unpredictable antics of a self-proclaimed vampire slayer who is hellbent on destroying them all.


Darling Girls (The Vampires of Candle Bay and Crimson Cove Book 1) is available on Amazon

Praise for Thorne and Cross:

“Put Bram Stoker in a giant cocktail shaker, add a pinch of Laurell K. Hamilton, a shot of John Carpenter, and a healthy jigger of absinthe, and you’ll end up with Alistair Cross’s modern Gothic chiller, “The Crimson Corset” - a deliciously terrifying tale that will sink its teeth into you from page one.” - Jay Bonansinga, New York Times Bestselling author of THE WALKING DEAD: INVASION and LUCID

“Think Mario Puzo meets Anne Rice … Balance is what Thorne does best ... (Candle Bay) is a love story. A mob story. A family drama. A wise combination of creepy, thrilling, titillating, and good old vampire fun ..." -Michael Schutz, Darkness Dwells Radio

“A great combination of strong characters that remind me of my V.C. Andrews characters, wonderful creepy twists, and a plot that will recall Mommie Dearest in an original take that shocks and delights at the same time. This is a full blown psychological thriller worth the investment of time and money.” - Andrew Neiderman, Author of The Devil's Advocate and the V.C. Andrews novels

Book Spotlight: Clockmaker

Today I have another delightful book spotlight, this time for the paranormal steampunk novel Clockmaker by Kristen Brand. Enjoy!


Clockmaker by Kristen Brand



The crew of the airship Sultana is nearly destitute. No one knows this better than its captain, Melek, who’s almost desperate enough to sell her treasured family heirlooms to pay her crew’s wages. Then a reclusive gentleman wearing a golden mask offers a fortune to transport him and a mysterious cargo to Istanbul. Needing the money, Melek can’t bring herself to refuse, even when her instincts warn of trouble.
Now strange noises haunt her airship at night, and deadly warships stalk the Sultana through dark, stormy skies. Melek’s masked passenger refuses to explain his private affairs, and she enjoys arguing with him perhaps a little too much. But he’s even more dangerous than she suspected, and she’ll have to unravel the dark intrigue he’s brought aboard her ship before it kills them all.





Clockmaker is available at:
