Lightbringers - the Age of Myths and Legends by David Price #fantasy


Lightbringers:
The
Age of Myths and Legends
by
David Price


Genre:
Fantasy

What
if all the gods of the earth once existed? Long ago a superior race
once came to earth and became humanity’s gods. The story is set on
a post cataclysmic earth. Technology has vanished and been replaced
by magick. Myths and monsters once again roam the land.


Blending
H. P. Lovecraft’s mythos, with the numerous mythologies of the
earth created a rich mythic landscape. Two groups of gods once
descended on the earth, Lovecraft’s horrific alien, inhuman beings
and the superior, god-like race, known as the Watchers, (the Elder
Gods described by August Derleth).

Lightbringers is
a Grimdark Fantasy set on a dying earth, twenty thousand years from
now. The stars are right and the Great Old One asleep at the bottom
of the world finally stirs in his terrible slumber. One reluctant
hero, a half-breed child of the Elder gods, and his companions set
out on a globe-spanning quest, populated by creatures of myth and
beings of legend, to save the Earth from the evil that threatens to
destroy it.

***Reviews***
"David
Price's LIGHTBRINGERS is exactly what I look for in a fantasy novel.
Fast paced, exhilarating and far removed from the cookie cutter
fiction you run across all too often. Do yourself a favor and read
this one!" — James A Moore, author of the SEVEN FORGES and
TIDES OF WAR series of novels.

"With
evocative language, powerful metaphor, and careful attention to
detail, Price brings us a world we can immerse ourselves in and not
want to leave." — Irene Radford, author of The Dragon Nimbus
Novels, Merlin's Descendants Series, and The Stargods Trilogy

David
Price’s LIGHTBRINGERS mingles a broad spread of myth and genre
tropes into a fascinating tale. Adding touches of history, locales
and dark lore, Price weaves a fine tale that will grip even a casual
reader. LIGHTBRINGERS splits the darkness of a lurid world.
Fascinating, funny and paced to please, LIGHTBRINGERS shines.” —
Steven L. Shrewsbury, Author of PHILISTINE, OVERKILL, WITHIN and
co-author of KING OF THE BASTARDS (with Brian Keene) and BAD MAGICK
(with Nate Southard)

A
confidence man. A liar. A monster. Flynn has seen himself for what he
really is and has resolved to pay for everything. Even if it means
spending the rest of his days locked in Civilis, a tower prison for
society's unwanted - "half-humans" gifted by the fallout of
nuclear holocaust centuries past.


Jean,
a prisoner in the neighboring cell, has different ideas and despite
himself, Flynn finds himself joining her daring escape. After
rescuing her friend Mack, the three flee Civilis as Flynn pieces
together the hours before his capture and finds himself drawn to an
abandoned facility where a rift to another world opens at his
nearing.

Together
they will venture farther beyond the stars than humanity ever
imagined, find others like them that will never belong, and tangle
with forces both ancient and immortal. They stand alone, hated and
scorned - and the last hope of making things right in a cosmos gone
terribly wrong.

The
outcasts are adrift--they have a mission but no means to fulfill it.
Airia Rousow, the fallen goddess who set them on their path, is gone.
Guardian Poe, her intended successor, believes deification will
absolve him of his sins and his remorse alike. And Zella Renivar,
daughter of the Living God, is still hunted by her father's agents,
drawing danger on them all.

Trapped
in this storm, Flynn is able to find and open the ways between
worlds, but cannot discern which path is the right one. Since losing
the trust of his closest friend, the temptation to fall back on his
former, deceitful ways with grows with every crisis he faces.

sequel to the #1 international bestseller, "Half-Blood
Dragon."

Rowen is on the run. Convicted of a murder
she didn't commit, a last-minute surprise rescue from the gallows by

of freedom, if not peace. Instead, Rowen has more enemies than
ever...and more questions.

Westin wants her back because he believes she is the key to finding
the legendary Red Dragon, a creature so powerful that it can change
the course of time.

Hunted by dragon shifters who despise her
and feared by humans who don't understand her, half-blood dragon
Rowen must unravel old mysteries in order to outsmart new

himself injured and also kept in the Red Dragon's lair, the two of
them must find a way to survive.

About YOU WILL BE MINE

Love turns deadly in a new, heart-pounding thriller from Natasha Preston, author of the runaway bestsellers The Cellar and The Cabin.

ROSES ARE RED

VIOLETS ARE BLUE

WATCH YOUR BACK

I’M COMING FOR YOU

Lylah and her friends can’t wait to spend a night out together. Partying is the perfect way to let loose from the stress of life and school, and Lylah hopes that hitting the dance floor with Chase, her best friend, will bring them closer together. She’s been crushing on him since they met. If only he thought of her the same way…

The girls are touching up their makeup and the guys are sliding on their coats when the doorbell rings. No one is there. An envelope sits on the doormat. It’s an anonymous note addressed to their friend Sonny. A secret admirer? Maybe. They all laugh it off.

Except Sonny never comes home. And a new note arrives:

YOUR TURN

Read an excerpt from YOU WILL BE MINE now!

I breathe in deep through my nose and out through my mouth—an exercise my therapist taught me when I started to feel like I was going to fall apart. I can slowly feel myself start to relax when the doorbell rings.

Sighing, I get up. My housemates must’ve forgotten their keys or be carrying too many bags to unlock the door.

I glance through the window, but no one is there.

Another doorbell ditch?

My blood runs cold as I open the door.

An envelope is sitting on our mat. The world turns mute as the blood rushes to my ears. Bending down, I scoop up the envelope. It’s addressed to Isaac. And it looks like exactly the one that came for Sonny.

No…

I turn it over and pull out the note. My hands are shaking as I read:

YOUR TURN

“Isaac!” rips from my throat.

“What?” he calls from his room down the hall. My voice is trapped in my throat as I look up and down the street. There are still a few folks leaving flowers, looking at the makeshift memorial in front of our house. Did one of them do this? Did one of them see who left the note? I feel so exposed. Vulnerable.

I draw back inside and shut the door, trembling.

Isaac’s footsteps thud from his bedroom into the foyer. “Lylah, what?” His face falls and his eyes widen as he sees what’s in my hand. “Is that another note?”

Nodding, I hand it to him.

“Jesus,” he whispers. “Who was it addressed to?”

I look up at him, my vision blurring with tears. “You.”

Something Just Like ThisSomething Just Like This

By Tracy Krimmer

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Age category: Adult

Release Date: February 14, 2018



Blurb:

Love? Second chances? That crap is for romantics, not realists like Juliette. She has a bad attitude about love and an even worse one when it comes to second chances. And she may dress like an elf for a few weeks out of the year, but that doesn’t mean she loves Christmas.



Stability? Purpose? Landon is surfing a pleasant wave of both until he's fired. Devastating news from his sister certainly doesn’t help. At least he has the holidays to look forward to.



When Landon shows up at the mall and Juliette prevents a disaster, he can’t stop thinking about that sweet elf. Juliette doesn’t believe in the spirit of Christmas, but she can’t help but wonder why Landon was in her line that day. Could Landon deserve one of those second chances she's so unwilling to give?




You can find Something Just Like This on Goodreads



You can buy Something Just Like This on Amazon for only $2.99 through February 15.

Jonathon Turner is going to be the death of me.

Maybe not the death of me…but my panties for sure! They seem to disintegrate the moment he touches me. Looks at me. Smiles at me. Talks to me.

It’s more than physical. He’s breaking through an impenetrable wall.

There’s a problem though—he’s younger than me.

Six. Years. Younger.

Let’s not forget he’s also one of my brother’s best friends.

Oh, the other problem I forgot to mention…

I never wanted to fall in love again.

But you know what they say….never say never.
