!!!!Teaser Alert From Julian Rise of The Prophecy!!!! A little insight to chapter 11!!

“Everything ok?” Richard asks as he arrives to meet outside the human prison as I instructed him over the phone.
“Yes, I’m going to release Aman.”
“Are you sure?”
“Hear me out, I know we can’t free him, but we can make his stay more comfortable, we can keep him in the castle in a safe house, technically he hasn’t done anything, but after witnessing me feed on humans, I can’t guarantee that he will not try to attack me some how in the future.”
“The decisions that trouble Kings, I’m glad that I’m no longer plagued by them.” 
I’ve never heard anyone speak about the loss of a throne in a positive way.
“You don’t miss it?”
“No, the throne took many that I love away from me. After that although at first a slave, I found freedom of thought, expression and privacy, sometimes just fading away in to the background was very peaceful. But that is why I’m no longer a King.” He laughs. 
I almost envy Richard for not being plagued by the desire to rule and greater power. A very small part of me wishes that I could be content by everything that I have, but then dreams awaken the sense of power that make me hungry for it even more than before.

Blog Tour for The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare – By Alesha Escobar

Wizard Vs. Nazi Warlock Vampires.

It’s a very different World War II.

The Nazis have unleashed occult forces throughout Europe and the Allies are forced to recruit and employ wizards to counter their attacks. Among them is the battle weary spy, Isabella George, a Gray Tower dropout trained in Alchemy. Longing for retirement and a life of peace, she accepts one final job-extract a deadly warlock from Nazi occupied France and prevent him from unleashing an alchemical weapon that will devour the continent.

But France is crawling with the Cruenti, vampiric warlocks who feed off other wizards. When things don’t go according to plan, one Cruenti sets his deadly eyes on her.

Betrayal is everywhere. Even some of her closest allies cannot be fully trusted. Worse still, she finds, she can’t even trust herself. She becomes a woman torn between her charismatic spy lover who offers her what she desires most, and one of her closest confidants, whose soft seductive eyes hold deadly secrets about her past, and the Gray Tower itself.

Plans within plans. Plots versus counter plots. Heists gone wrong, sword-wielding Catholic priests, and the greatest manipulation of history that has ever been seen, is just a taste of what Isabella George is in for, in her final mission.

Savior.

Monster.

A Time Wizard who will be the damnation of many… 

The world already suffers a bitter taste of hell on earth, in a World War II where Nazi warlock vampires battle with Gray Tower wizards in the streets of Europe and in the shadows.

The Gray Tower, in its quest to stabilize a world that hangs on a delicate balance, has issued an order: Kill the Drifter.

Isabella George, an alchemist trained by the Tower, knows the identity of the Drifter and refuses to go through with it, because it hits too close to home. Instead of executing the Drifter, she protects the Time Wizard at all costs and ensures that the power to control Time never falls into the wrong hands. She sets out to lift the severe decree of the Gray Tower, and prove to the Master Wizards that the Drifter is the only way to win the war.

As Isabella unmasks traitors and embraces unlikely allies, her greatest danger may lie in her own heart–from the brutal desire for revenge, to the crushing guilt she carries…and the dangerous passion she tries to deny when she’s with one man in particular.

As she attempts to sort things out both in her heart and head–and not mix up the two, a figure from her past comes along and makes an enticing offer to solve all her problems. The only payment required is her soul.

More from Julian:Rise of The Prophecy

“I can almost grasp the power, it is well within reach..the vision I gave up everything and everyone, a vision of a Kingdom, An empire greater than what has preceded before, power and immeasurable wealth. Earth will belong to me…but my soul is not satisfied…it searches for something different. My soul shows me dreams, ones that I fear that will distract me from my path. My soul shows me visions of love, not the kind of love that only lasts with lust, the deeper kind, the one that offers companionship, understanding and forgiveness. The kind that makes demands and forces you to it’s knees and dares you to become selfless.  I cannot become selfless, I will not allow it to weaken me. I cannot walk away from the painful journey that I’ve traveled, just for love…Can I?”

More glimpses of Julian: The Rise of The Prophecy

“Why give me hope with words that you speak so casually? They have no real meaning or emotions behind them…you focus on your suffering and pain and what you yearn for.  You seek your yearning in me, your friend whom you confide in daily about the misdemeanors of you partner.  Perhaps I offer you something that they don’t and then you throw a few morsels of affection in my direction which I take gladly, knowing that is all I will get from you and nothing more, as tragic as it is I look forward to your meaningless words of affection.”

THE ACTIONS OF A HERO

This was beautifully written so I thought I would share this!

kiwissoar

In case anyone out there is ready to tar all Muslims with the same brush – in the NZ Herald this morning there was an article about a Somali Muslim who risked his life saving people trapped in Kenya’s Westgate Mall.  In the photo we can see a little girl running towards him as her mother and siblings hide underneath a table.  Don’t let the actions of a few brain-washed thugs divide humanity into religious camps…

Jesus said that the two greatest commandments are ‘to love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind…and the second is you shall love your neighbor as yourself.  On these two commandments hang all the law and prophets.’ (Gospel of Matthew, Holy Bible)

                                                                                                             By Dean Mayes

 

Australian Denny Banister had it all; a successful career, a passion for the guitar, and Sonya – the love of his life. Tragically, Denny is struck down with inoperable cancer.

 

Andy DeVries has almost nothing; alienated from his family, moving through a dangerous Chicago underworld dealing in drugs, battling addiction while keeping a wavering hold on the only thing that matters to him: a place at a prestigious conservatory for classical guitar in Chicago. As Andy recovers from a near fatal overdose, he is plagued by dreams – memories of a love he has never felt, and a life he’s never lived. Driven by the need for redemption and by the love for a woman he’s never met, he begins a quest to find her, knowing her only by the memories of a stranger and the dreams of a place called Hambledown…

About the Author

Image

 

Emerging onto the literary stage in 2010 when in his mid 30’s, Adelaide based author and Pediatric ICU Nurse Dean Mayes describes himself as somewhat of a late bloomer, having almost given up on the prospect of ever being published. Dean had an idea for a story that he dearly wanted to tell however, and decided instead to blog the story rather than allow it to wither and die in his imagination.

 

Quite unexpectedly, the blog took off, quickly logging upwards of 3000 unique visits per month as a rapidly growing audience “tuned in” to Dean’s dream like tale of a young man who discovers he has taken on the memories and dreams of a complete stranger in the aftermath of a near fatal drug overdose.

 

Following a chance meeting with Canadian based publisher Central Avenue in mid 2009, Dean was signed by Creative Director Michelle Halket to an initial two year contract. In 2010, Dean’s humble blog became his debut novel “The Hambledown Dream” – a lyrical and moving romance about a young man’s journey on both sides of mortality. The novel has since gone on to receive global attention and critical acclaim.

 

Having established himself as an author of great passion and literary style, Dean set about penning a follow up novel that was not merely a repeat performance. After 2 years of meticulous research, Central Avenue Publishing released the powerful Australian family drama “Gifts of the Peramangk” in October 2012.

 

A third project, an experimental sci-fi novella entitled “The Regenesis Cluster”, was released in 2013. Dean describes this piece as an exploration of death and life, an artistic interpretation of reincarnation using words.

 

Dean is now working on his third feature length novel, the tentatively titled “The Recipient”.

3 Star Review for The Danfians Prophecy!

I received a 3 star review for The Danfians Prophecy I have recently accumulated  a couple of 1 stars and one 2 star review, they all seem to have the same thing in common that they felt that there wasn’t enough detail for them but they all still liked the idea of the story.  I hear you all and I have duly noted your comments, I can assure you all that I have taken it on board for the second part of this novel.

Check out the review below:

I want to thank L. Sengul and the group we ‘heart’ YA Books for the opportunity to read and review this book.

Firstly I want to say that I really wanted to enjoy this book. I like the idea behind the story… two alien races living on Earth – one who wants to protect and one who wants to rule.

I struggled to read this book for two reasons. I found the writing style did not suit my reading style. It sometimes felt a bit disjointed and there were quite a few errors. Secondly, the POV’s kept jumping with little indication or warning. I found it hard to differentiate between the characters as the writing style didn’t change with the POV. It felt like the same person was talking and thinking for all of the characters.

I would still recommend this book as the foundations of the story are interesting and just because this book did not suit me personally, in no way reflects how other YA fiction fans may feel about it.

Thank you for the opportunity to read your work. Best wishes for the success of your book.  http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/R25E5CIGK15QOQ/ref=cm_cr_pr_viewpnt#R25E5CIGK15QOQ
